The London Economic is reporting that it has been claimed that fundamentalist Christian schools in the UK are teaching children that being homosexual is unnatural and girls have to obey men.
Ex-pupils have turned whistleblowers and have come forward to say that various private schools across the UK are teaching these old fashioned prejudices during lessons.
The people who have come forward have said that the textbooks they use told them that creationism is actually a fact, women have to obey men and being gay is immoral.
An anonymous former pupil, who wanted to protect their identity said: ‘No one outside the schools knows about what happens inside them, that’s why they’ve been able to go on like this for so long.’
