    From this start of the school year, and throughout 2020/2021, several Catalan elementary and secondary schools will offer Muslim religion courses to students.

    According to the Spanish daily, La Vanguardia, learning the Islamic religion will be introduced into the school curriculum of several primary and secondary schools. For the time being, only public schools in the cities of Barcelona, Baix, Llobregat, Girona and Tarragona are concerned.

    According to the Catalan Minister of Education, this pilot project aims to “guarantee the free exercise of worship” and to “maintain social cohesion”. In this sense, the courses are not compulsory, the registration will depend on the free choice of the students.

    This programme is part of the cooperation agreement between the Spanish State and the Islamic Commission of Spain. The teachers will be appointed by this same commission. The content of these courses will however be defined by the government.

      I used to have some sympathy for the Catalan cause, now (in light of this and related treacheries) I say: crush Catalan separatism into the dust! Along with all other scum who betray 800-odd years of bloody struggle to liberate Spain from the the first Muslim invasion-conquest in 711.

        The SNP, under Nicola Sturgeon, seems to have gone the same way. Under the leadership of this Scottish “independence” party, Scotland seems destined to loose not only its independence but its very identity. I suspect that these fake-separatist movements have been funded by globalist forces all along and are carrying out their agenda.

          Agree, and if the ‘British’ elites were not such pathetic snivelling clowns, they would smash the fake-nat SNP to political smithereens along with a bunch of other things, but they are.

      “guarantee the free exercise of worship”?? What bullshit. I was brought up Catholic and our family had free exercise of worship, despite no government-funded religious training. We had CCD, our J–ish friends had Hebrew school and the Protestant kids had their Sunday schools, all with barely any mention of religion in our public-school classrooms. These politicians are just pandering to what they see as the forces that are taking over Europe. Is it too late to stop them?

        It is as long as grovelling snivelling money-grubbing suicide-genocide and arch-treason is the operative philosophy. And, even ‘freedom of worship’ has to have practical limits, like not permitting Satanic or other ‘religious’ human sacrifice, or Islamic takeover of Western lands.
