The tacit endorsement of Islam by the Toronto school board.
The girls are being segregated during Muslim prayers, that as I have mentioned in the title, are being held in a PUBLIC SCHOOL “mosqueteria”, if you will.
The article that accompanied the photo below, gives as the reason the girls in the back are being segregated from the group is that they are having their periods. But if you notice, [all] of the girls are separated by rows of bleachers from their male classmates.Ã‚Â And that menstruating girls are deemed so unclean, that they are not even allowed to participate in the prayers with those of their own gender, is all the more disturbing. Then again, what about Islam is not disturbing?
"The girls sitting at the back during Friday prayers are menstruating and not allowed to sit with everyone else." - John Goddard/Toronto Star
(National Post) –The photo depicts a row of girls sitting in the cafeteria of Valley Park Middle School in Toronto. The row is segregated behind a mass of students who are participating in an Islamic prayer service. The reason the girls in the back are not praying is because -wait for it -they have their periods.
One is tempted to say: Is this the Middle Ages? Have I stumbled into a time warp, where “unclean” women must be prevented from “defiling” other persons? It’s bad enough that the girls at Valley Park have to enter the cafeteria from the back, while the boys enter from the front, but does the entire school have the right to know they are menstruating?
In defence of the school’s practices, Toronto District School Board Education (TDSB) director Chris Spence stated that, “As a public school board, we have a responsibility and an obligation to accommodate faith needs.” But those “faith needs” are a matter of debate.
According to the liberal-minded Muslim Canadian Congress (MCC), Friday prayers actually are not a compulsory religious requirement for these students. The group also opposes the gender segregation imposed on the children. Indeed, the MCC is contemplating legal action to force the TDSB to respect the Ontario Education Act, which states, “a board shall not permit any person to conduct religious exercises or to provide instruction that includes religious indoctrination in a particular religion or religious belief in a school.”
This regulation respects the 1988 Ontario Court of Appeal ruling in the case of Zylberberg v. Sudbury Board of Education. The court held that the Lord’s Prayer could no longer be spoken in public schools, on the grounds that it discriminated against students from other faiths, or who had no religion at all.

The “Lord’s Prayer” in a public school is an illegal “discriminatory” act, BUTÃ‚Â the prayers and instruction of the religion of barbarism, inequality and hate are to be “accommodated”.
“The absurd lengths that leftists will go to, in order to allow Muslims preferential treatment, and immunity from their own (leftists) laws”
Bibles are banned BUT the un-holy Quran is not. This mindset gives Muslims special status above the law, thereby creating a quasi-caliphate within the Canadian public school system, ruled by sharia law.
Keep bending over milquetoast leftists, and eventually the choice to stand straight up, will never come your way again…
