The consequences of redefining marriage continue coming to light with news that a United Kingdom Jewish school faces forced closure for not teaching LGBT issues.
Vishnitz Girls School in London is one of seven known UK schools reportedly falling foul of the Department of Education and the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Schools (Ofsted) for not provide “a full understanding of fundamental British values.” as outlined in the Equality Act.
The school has been told it must “improve” or face closure for not teaching children aged three to eight LGBT issues.
UK Education Secretary Justine Greenings has expressed plans to make LGBT education compulsory in all schools.
“Just three years after same-sex marriage has been legalised in the UK, the Government is now going after religious schools for not promoting or endorsing rainbow ideology,” warns Australian Christian Lobby managing director Lyle Shelton.
“In Sweden, the Prime Minister has gone after priests and pastors, warning them to perform gay marriage or “find another job”.
“The experiences in Sweden, the UK and other countries show that a same-sex marriage bill that supposedly protects religious freedoms will not stand the test of time.
“Taking lessons from other nations, Australian churches and schools need to be very concerned with the consequences of removing the gender requirement from the Marriage Act.
“A plebiscite or people’s vote will allow all Australians the opportunity to vote on the consequences of redefining marriage,” Mr Shelton said.
