Swedish Christian Kids Banned From Saying Grace At Mealtimes, Can No Longer Say ĎAmení

A Christian preschool in Sweden has banned children from saying grace at mealtimes, talking about the Bible, or saying “Amen”.

The decision to forbid children at the school in Umea to engage in religious practices was reached after a school inspection. The municipality’s supervisors in charge of education noted that the Christian activities violate Sweden’s educational policies, Swedish National Broadcaster STV reported.

Sweden’s Education Act prohibits schools from having confessional elements during school time and says children should be able to opt-out of religious practices.

Inspectors believed the preschool, run by the Salvation Army, didn’t give children a choice as to whether they wanted to participate in elements of the day such as saying grace before a meal.

A Christian school where the kids cannot be taught Christian ideas and principles. Only in Muslim dominated Europe. For now.

I would not wish to be a person who kept children from learning of the gospel. There is a special judgment set aside for such individuals.

Sweden is committing suicide. I bet the kids could say “Allahu akbar” no problem.

Swedish authorities would do well to read the OT and what happened to Israel and Judah when they abandoned God.

"the preschool, run by the Salvation Army"

I would take a guess that the parents of these kids know what the Salvation Army stands for.

Christian beliefs.

It's what the SA does.

The Swedish government is a disgrace.

Idiots! “Sveden”...needs to fight in a real war or two. Maybe then they can begin to grow a batch of meatballs.

Human-induced climate change is also a ‘belief’ system, but that’s not banned.

Its the post Christian age in northern Europe and it shows in the hatred for all things Christian.

Doesn't surprise me!

Back in the 90's I sold products to daycare centers and one woman who ran a home daycare said that the state inspectors warned her not to have the children say grace before their meal.
