Parents ‘Face Action’ for Withdrawing their Children from ‘LGBT History Month’ Lessons

Country: United Kingdom

Date of incident: March 30, 2009

A group of Christian and Muslim parents who kept their children away from controversial lessons about homosexuality were reportedly facing legal action by the council involved.

The lessons – part of ‘LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) History Month’ – used books such as ‘King and King’, lauded by homosexual activists for promoting homosexual relationships to children. Around 30 children were withdrawn from the week of lessons at George Tomlinson Primary School in Waltham Forest, East London. A Waltham Forest Council spokesman confirmed that the withdrawals were being treated as “unauthorised absences” and that “action has been taken”. Although the Council refused to say how they planned to punish parents, the Council website said that parents of truant children can be asked to sign a contract, fined on the spot or taken to court.
