A Christian mother in London is finally getting her day in court this week after a school tried to force her four-year-old son to take part in its pride parade against her wishes.

Izzy Montague was told by the Croydon school five years ago that her son could not opt out of the event despite the family’s Christian beliefs.

She was told that not participating would be seen as a ‘behavioural’ issue.

Mrs. Montague claims staff became “antagonistic” towards her after she complained.

The mother said she wasn’t wasn’t trying to stop the event, but just wanted her child “to receive an education, not indoctrination.”

Mrs. Montague withdrew her child from the school and commenced legal action to raise awareness among parents about what is happening in the country’s primary schools.

After years of waiting, her case is finally being heard.

It will be the first time a UK court will scrutinise the legality of imposing LGBT ideology on primary schools.

Mrs. Montague is being supported by the Christian Legal Centre.

Its Chief Executive Andrea Williams said: “This case epitomises the chaos we can expect to see in the coming years in our schools and is another example of the ‘totalitolerance’ that has become so prevalent in our society.”

“Those who preach tolerance and diversity the loudest do not appear to be interested in practising it,” she observed.

“A particular agenda is being forced onto children inside the school gates and parents are being given no means to ensure that their children are being taught in line with their religious and philosophical beliefs.”
