During Ramadan, Waltham Forest and Newham Councils have given approval for 27 mosques to broadcast the Muslim daily call to prayer across the Boroughs by loudspeaker. While one can appreciate and indeed sympathise with the difficulties faced by Muslims in observing Ramadan at this time, it is wrong to allow public broadcast of the message, “there is no god except Allah,” including as it does a call upon listeners to submit.READ MORE

Kristie Higgs, a pastoral assistant at Farmor’s Academy in Gloucester, was recently sacked after posting concerns on her personal Facebook page about RSE lessons at a nearby Church of England Primary School attended by her own child. Worried especially by the use of two story books promoting homosexuality and transgenderism, Kristie, a committed Christian, asked friends to sign a Voice for Justice UK petition calling for the right of parents to have children educated in line with their religious beliefs. For this she was anonymously reported for homophobia to the school where she worked, with the result that she was summoned to a disciplinary hearing at which she was sacked for gross misconduct.
It is unacceptable that a devout Christian mother, with an exemplary work record spanning six years, should be penalised for expressing justifiable concerns over teaching that prematurely introduces children to sexual issues of which they would otherwise be unaware, and that runs directly contrary to her Christian faith…READ MORE

…The current proposals to remove any element of fault from divorce trivialises both the commitment to, and solemnity of, marriage. It destroys any idea of covenant, and risks making it from the outset a temporary contract that can be terminated at whim by either party, without agreement from the other side…READ MORE

On Saturday, 14thJuly, Bournemouth held a Gay Pride Parade through the centre of town. According to the local paper, thousands of spectators lined the streets to welcome the dozens of floats celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender culture. The parade was led by crews from Dorset and Wiltshire Fire Service, joined by members of the police force, fire service and paramedics. David Skinner is an elderly gentleman who also attended, but in his case to bear witness to the shocking death at the turn of the century of Harry Hammond, a 69 year old, Christian street preacher, who in 2001 was physically attacked at a similar parade, after the sign he was carrying provoked outrage from the crowd…

Please sign our petition to the Prime Minister, the Rt Hon Theresa May, calling for Government to scrap the guidance stopping parental access to children’s medical records
We thought it was maybe misinterpretation of new GDPR requirements, when parents started to receive letters from their doctors’ surgeries telling them they would no longer be allowed access to their child’s medical records, unless the child gave explicit permission. It appears, however, that we were wrong, because the Government has now issued a Briefing Paper entitled Patient records and confidentiality. And as s part of this, The British Medical Association (BMA) has produced guidance on confidentiality and the disclosure of health records in relation to children. The guidance states:
‘…children who are aged 12 or over are generally expected to have capacity to give or withhold their consent to the release of information …
If the child is competent to understand what is involved in the proposed treatment, the health professional should, unless there are convincing reasons to the contrary … respect the child’s wishes if they do not want parents or guardians to know. However, every reasonable effort must be made to persuade the child to involve parents or guardians particularly for important or life-changing decisions.’ (House of Commons Briefing Paper, Number 07103, 25 May 2018)READ MORE
