The law about religious discrimination does not apply to what is taught in schools the curriculum. For example:. My family is Hindu. I am upset because my daughter has to go to religious education classes at school where Hinduism is hardly mentioned. This seems to be discrimination against Hindus as Christianity is mentioned a lot.
The classes have to reflect the fact that religious tradition in this country is mainly Christian. However, they also have to take into account the other main religions and individual classes can be about other religions. Try talking to your child's teacher about the problems you are experiencing.

But if you can't manage to sort out the problem, there is probably no legal action you can take. In a community or foundation school, acts of collective worship, such as assemblies, must be of a general Christian nature. However, they must not reflect any one particular type of Christianity, for example, Catholicism. In a faith school, which is a voluntary or foundation school, collective worship must reflect the faith of the school.
There are certain areas of the law about discrimination because of religion and belief which don't apply to faith schools or colleges. For example, faith schools and colleges have the right to discriminate because of religion when they decide who to accept as a pupil or student. They can choose to give priority to pupils who share their own faith over other pupils.
However, it's against the law for them to leave places unfilled if there aren't enough pupils of their own faith to fill them. For example, a Catholic school is not allowed to exclude a pupil who started off as a Catholic and then converts to a different faith. However, faith schools and colleges are allowed to restrict certain services and benefits that they offer to pupils sharing the faith of the school or college, or can offer them in a different way. For example, faith schools are allowed to:.

And this is not just a local but a worldwide phenomenon. I believe that the most basic definition of sin as it is outlined in the Bible is not the breaking of the law, but rather it is the devilish desire to be in control—to manipulate, control, maneuver, threaten and abuse others, and especially God, to do my thing.
When Satan met Jesus in the wilderness for the threefold temptation his strategy was simply, do you own thing and if needs be you can get God to help you. All you need to do is come up with a good excuse, like you need something to eat. Sure it seems harmless enough.
After all, you really are a victim and you deserve it. In all my years I have never heard a sermon preached on this subject of control and how it warps our view of God. Why have we strayed so far from the simple Gospel? He talked as if God exists to give us his goodies and there are clear principles we can use to manipulation him to do our will. Underlying his argument is that we are all victims of society and that God exists to make us comfortable. This is so far removed from the desire of Jesus to show us the Father and His unconditional love for each of us.

Because as surely as the sun rises, he is. He does hear you. He is communicating back to you, but obviously not in the way you are expecting. Look less for proof of anything, and stop trying so hard to make promises work. Such truth. As a recently retired Professor in Theology and also a qualified medical doctor I have noticed that what most people suffer from guilt or shame caused by the fear that the Church inspires not only in the next life but in this life.
Jesus fought against the greed of the Temple priests and the Sanhedrin and the key to his Healing Miracles was to first tell people that their sins were forgiven because he knew that guilt was at the root of their suffering. Still, even casually religious workers who feel that their faith is keeping them from job opportunities might be on to something.
Wright and Allen Hyde from the University of Connecticut. Further, potential employers showed differing responses to specific religious affiliations.
Atheists, pagans and Catholics also proved to be a hurdle for employers, though not as much as Muslims. Only the fictitious Evangelical and Jewish applicants appeared to suffer no particular disadvantage. Abercrombie contends that it did not know that the scarf worn by the applicant, Samantha Elauf, was a religious item. If the burden of knowing whether an applicant needs a religious accommodation is placed upon the employer, some argue, this will force companies to ask applicants about their religion, and expose employers to an additional potential wave of discrimination claims.
Outright discrimination is one thing.
What You Should Know About Workplace Religious Accommodation
But some forms of bias in the workplace are more subtle. Does a non-Jesuit employee at a Jesuit university have as much of a chance of a promotion as the Jesuit worker?
