Two boys resisted

"Alsager School, near Stoke, has received furious complaints from parents after two Year 7 boys were punished for refusing to kneel to Allah during a religious studies class. . ." The two boys received detention.

Our first thoughts - It seems unlikely that any teacher would be forcing Muslim students to kneel to Christ. The uproar has focused on the teacher, whose actions have been justifiably criticised. We are interested in the actions of the boys, who taught a more profoundly British lesson in freedom of religious conscience.

Under considerable pressure, they refused to kneel. Good for them.
