A Christian couple have removed their son from school.
Because there’s another child in their six-year-old’s class who is ‘sometimes a boy and sometimes a girl’ – which means he sometimes wears frocks.
So ‘confused’ is Sally and Nigel Rowe’s son that they are now homeschooling him.
The school has been accused of acting with a political agenda in allowing the other child to wear a dress.
When I was a kid there was a Jehovah’s Witness boy at my primary school.
His parents made him sit outside when we had assembly.
They did not approve of hymn singing and didn’t want him exposed to a hall full of children warbling We plough the fields and scatter – lest a plague of locusts flew out of his bottom.
Presumably an off-key communal singalong by those who have not witnessed Jehovah might shake his faith and make him demand a birthday party and a blood transfusion.
