Coming to a School Near You

Hat tip Vlad Tepes

This is what  Dutch school kids are being subjected to: Visits to a local mosque and instruction in Islamic worship. It's happened in the US as well,  for example, at the Boston Islamic Cultural Society mosque.

That's just basic Islam 101. Wait until these kids graduate to the advanced levels.

You mean like when my low church Presbyterian self was marched with my classmates at St. Andrew's in Headington to the local high church Anglican parish church? Where they had the odd velvet cushioned prayer things on the back of every pew? I wasn't damaged by the experience. Eight year olds are resilient. Although I will agree that putting school children through ANY religious exercise is dubious. Oh, and in boy scouts there was this kid who put everyone through an elaborate joke praying to Allah for a wabbit.

It's the same principle as putting kids in the Hitler Youth or the Stalin Explorers or whatever they were called. If kids are that resilient, there would never have been a Hitler Youth. It would have been considered a useless exercise.

It was the Communist Youth League (Komsomols). Your friend Vladimir Putin says in the absence of the Komsomols, he doesn't see any way to socialize youth without the Orthodox Church. A visit to a house of worship for a few hours is hardly a league one joins for several years. But, again, I consider it dubious to have students engage in acts of worship, even as a dramatic exercise, as distinct from taking a tour and hearing an explanation.
