I Would Assume you Knew it was a Catholic School when You Enrolled News - Education - Islamic group urges Catholic school to move to Muslim faith related a fascinating tale of out and out arrogance.
The Campaign for Muslim Schools said 90 per cent of pupils at St Albert's Primary, in the Pollokshields area of Glasgow, are Muslim, yet children are having to take part in Catholic rituals like saying the Lord's Prayer and attending mass.

If I am not mistaken, when these Muslim children were enrolled, they had a meeting in an office where there was most likely a crucifix on the wall. This should have been their first clue that Islam was not going to be practiced. Actually what this appears to be is a good old-fashioned land grab. On what do I base this? Well, the words of Osama Saeed:
Osama Saeed, co-ordinator of the alliance of Glasgow's main mosques and Muslim organisations, said he could see no reason why the main faith of the school should not change.

He said: "Clearly the parents of that area find a faith school, even if it is of another denomination, preferable to a secular one. But surely it should be possible for them to have one that is relevant to their own faith.

"To move towards this would be a fantastic example of good faith - in more ways than one - on the part of the Church.

Good faith? I don't know how Saeed can say those words with a straight face. This is not only a land grab, but a land grab with an eye toward desecration. Remember, if they are observing sacraments it is on consecrated ground. These Muslims knew what they were doing and if anybody needs to be lectured on "good faith" it is Mr. Saeed et al
