Swedish children BANNED from saying “amen”, talking about Bible at Christian preschool

StaffRebel Columnist

Another day, another example of Sweden being the world's most pathetic country.

According to Breitbart, children at a Christian preschool are no longer allowed to say grace during lunch, talk about the bible and even say “amen” after a ruling by the Umeå municipality.

Supervisors from the district said the activities are contrary to the Education Act, which forbids educational content during school time from containing confessional elements. It also states that children must have a choice to participate.

In this case, it was found that children were not giving enough of an opportunity to opt out of saying grace before meals.

“As a confessional activity, we knew we could no longer have prayer time while children are at their desks where they learn, so we thought we would add grace as a nice feature during mealtimes,” the preschool’s manager Britt Marie Mårtensson told STV.

She added that the children no longer say grace and instead sing a rhyme which gives thanks to the sun and rain at mealtimes.

“It’s sad because grace is a tradition, but the rhyme is also nice and it allows the kids to choose to whom and what they want to give thanks,” she said.

Thank you ALLAN PETERSON for reading it. The undermining and destruction of the nuclear family is the radical-Left goal (just as the communists & fascists did) to deconstruct parental authority and make children nothing more than a commodity to be indoctrinated and used for the State’s “greater good”. As we all know, that “good” has never ever once been nor will ever be “Good”. University (MIS-) dedicated idiots have renounced decent democratic society in favour of some unattainable utopia. Ask Dr, Jordan Peterson, I think he’s one of the few who actually understands this.

Christianity being banned while Islam being lovingly inserted into the schools?

Why am I not in the least bit surprised?

Interesting article Harold. Funny how the lefties think they know more than 10,000 years of human experience because they took university course from someone who probably doesn’t even have children.

I apologize to those who I annoy, but as my area of expertise, every time “Sweden” comes up, I am going to hammer on the point that when they criminalized solid time-tested traditional parenting, it lead to the absurdity and society destruction that is the Hallmark of Sweden today. I can gibe a 3-hour dissertation on this. Is there anyone left who isn’t brainwashed by Cultural-Marxism and wants to hear it? https://www.keep43.ca/app/download/7245738500/Sweden+-+The+Canary+in+the+Coal+Mine.pdf

Are they telling islamic schools to do the same?

That’s what happens when you have a state Brainwasher. I mean broadcaster. People make the mistake of getting their identity from them. I am so thankful that my grandparents left Sweden in the 1920’s. I’m sure they are turning in their graves.

I’m starting to feel quite sorry for the Swedish people, so obedient to the point of naiveté, who believe that capitulation in small things will not result in the complete slavery of their country to muslim overlords within decades. Remember each member of Sweden’s “feminist” government donning hijabs to walk shamefully before President Rouhani earlier this year? These are the people holding Sweden’s future in their hands, yet they can’t even retain their feminist beliefs in a time of relative peace for their country. How quickly will they hand Sweden’s sovereignty away to foreigners so much stronger than they are, already resident in their country, who overpower Swedish police on a daily basis?

This is what we’re told to do, and this is what Christians must do no matter where we are. And we don’t let anyone stop us because this is God’s will. The Living God. Our children will say Amen. “You shall therefore impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul; and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. You shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up.” Deuteronomy 11:18-19
