What makes you think the inmates of "faith" schools are "willing"?

Yeah, I thought about amending that before I even posted it. I absolutely don't think kids are 'willling' captives in faith schools. In fact, when people ask my wife and I about raising our kids 'athiest' (as if it's a radical position), the usual suggestion is 'why not let them decide for themselves when they get older'. Which is fine, but I'll be fucked if I'm going to let them be filled with religious bullshit until then, and then have to unlearn it all. Kind of like the little anecdote I told here if you're interested. The longish post, about half-way down.

I'd consider myself one of the more hardcore atheists on OTF and it wouldn't occur to me to protest the construction of a mosque.
I dearly hope that the day will come when Britain's derelict, deserted, noughties-built mosques are converted into discos and bingo halls (ideally, for the sake of irony, Mecca ones), but I doubt I shall live long enough to see it.

Ah yes! I concur.

If we undertook certain Hindu practices, the whole thing would be both more complicated, and simple at the same time.

I was going to look for reference to the necrophagist holy men of Benares who have sex with a menstruating prostitute once a year as some central focus of their religious calendar. Funnily enough, I'm not too enamoured by putting that into Google when I'm in work. Wait til I get home, if anyone wants enlightening.

I am normally against the idea of message boards with polls but the 'Brothel or Place of Worship in your street? - you decide!' option would be fantastic. Perhaps on the brave new world of wsc.co.uk?

Same here, but, you know, the same goes for chain pubs.

Red lightening, surely?

Kudos, Wyatt! :-)

It is important to distinguish between main-stream Islam and the Conservative Islam of people like Said Kutb, but unfortunately the extremists have all the money.

The House of Saud has spent tens of billions of Rials exporting their extreme conservative form of Wahaabiist Islam to the rest of the world. Their money has funded the building of Mosques and schools world-wide, and in return for this investment they have seen to it that Wahabiists have staffed these institutions. Western governments have not been blind to this, they are aware of what has been happening but have chosen to do nothing because they are paralyzed by the fear of failing oil supplies.

(I mean, if you are Bush or Brown and you have a choice between doing in business with the murderous and oppressive House of Saud, or Hugo Chavez - you choose the Saudis obviously.)

Consider for a moment the hypocrisy of those western politicians who ring their hands at the rise of Islamic fundamentalism, yet have chosen to do nothing about the root cause of this turn to fundamentalism because acting against fundamentalism ultimately may damage corporate profits.

Similarly a Saudi Prince suspected of taking GBP 1 Billion pounds in bribes from a British company is able to say to Tony Blair "stop investigating me, or I will ensure that terrorist attacks against you resume unchecked" and Blair's only response is to back down. These lying, cheating thugs are our allies allegedly.

Hi all. Can't stop - I'm busy and want to read through the thread before I add something. Just thought I'd mention one of the reasons I reckon the licence request might be denied: there's a mosque a few doors down.

(Apparently, the council take into account whether there are schools and places of worship in the vicinity when they're making their decision.)

WoM,

We sound very much alike in our positions, in fact I've had a very similar conversation with my eldest daughter as you recounted in the other thread ( I don't have the same problem about raising the issue of God being made up discussed on there. I just told my daughter that some people believed the stories about God and Jesus were true but I didn't).

I find religous schools far more loathsome than places of worship, and (given the legal requirement for a level of Christian ideology in all standard state schools) a lot harder to avoid.

Great post, historically bob-on, but I hardly imagine it'll help get people more accepting of the plans to build their local mosque.

True. Whenever someone imagines something new, they imagine the worst-case version of it. Like me, I guess, with my 'strip joint...and then what?' post on the first couple of pages.

So does anyone oppose the license on the basis that patrons and employees might be put at risk when Spearmint Rhino comes around with a can of petrol and a zippo lighter?

I see the Sartre reference got another outing. Does everyone see that? Everyone notices?

Not just controversial and outspoken, but well-read too. I do hope everyone notices.

(might be an idea to repeat it again, SR, just in case)
