|I do not think that you will find any chapels in Muslim Schools|
Is that right?
A Catholic School offering Muslim students the facility to practice their faith?
A Catholic School providing a Prayer Room for Muslims, is that so very wrong?
Deacon Tony Flavin provides a Prayer Room at his school, (not sure which one), and is pleased that young Muslim males and females attend prayers there.
Well, for the record, in a secular educational situation, I have provided Prayer Rooms for Muslims most willingly.
But, I do not think it right that a Catholic School or College should do so.
If you allow Muslims a space, would you also do the same for Sikhs, Seventh Day Adventists, Hari Krishna followers, Wicca Groups, Scientologists, Mormons and so on?
I suspect, depressingly, that most Catholic Schools would fall in line with any requests from such faiths. But then, I have a very low opinion of most Catholic Schools.
We do have one or two (but only one or two) flagship Schools where the essence of clear doctrinal teaching and ethos is promoted. Cardinal Vaughan is one; the London Oratory is, I suspect, another.
There may be a few more. Count the fingers on one hand; that is the state that we are in.
It would be interesting to have your views on the subject; am I being a racist right winger?
I hope not.
