A school operated according to political beliefs is preposterous
This week, Denmark got a new school. An Islamic high school. Not everyone is happy with that decision. Steffen Mortensen, member of the board at Hatune Foundation Sweden wrote the following concerning the ongoing islamisation of Europe – and Denmark in particular, in this case.
I feel bad about remarks about like: “when it is ok to create Christian schools, it is also ok with Muslim schools”.
The leveling down of everything, and say that all creeds which calls itself a religion, are equally good, is too easy as well as cheap and a way to avoid taking a stand for anything.
Islam is a totalitarian ideology that only has rights as a religion, because it calls itself religion.
But Islam cannot live without political power.
When you introduce legislation and punish people for violating it, then you are a politician.
The last few hundred years with the Western democracies have evolved and shaped the freest society on earth and the communities that most people turn to when they are in trouble. Christianity has been the dominant religion and it has not prevented this development.
Nor has it created it, but nicely kept itself in the background, as the legislation has been drafted on the basis of what one could agree on. We have used empirical, rational thinking (broadly), and even a touch of consideration for those who do not agree with the majority.
It has created communities where personal freedom, the right to say what you like and tolerance for dissent has been greatest. There is still room for improvement, but compared to how the creeds in other parts of the world is managed, it is still in the Western democracies, we find the greatest tolerance to newcomers with a different view of things.
Christianity does not require political power to flourish.
Islam cannot thrive without political power.
A school operated according to political beliefs is preposterous, and should not be able to get public support.
And it can’t – that is unless it is renamed ‘a religious school’.
