Rabbis representing Britain’s main Orthodox communities have told the government that their schools cannot discuss LGBT-related issues with pupils. According to the Jewish Chronicle, the rabbinate of Chinuch UK have made it clear that its 35 or so private schools cannot comply with the latest pro LGBT directives from the state. Orthodox Judaism, like Islam, prohibits homosexuality. However, no Muslim schools have taken such a clear stand against LGBT teachings up to now. In a statement, Chinuch UK said that schools should not “not describe to pupils lifestyles prohibited by the Torah” and “ensure that inspectors do not speak to pupils about these matters at all.” They said schools, when asked by inspectors, should “state clearly and respectfully that they do not cover these subjects.” But schools were directed “to demonstrate that pupils are taught to act respectfully to all people regardless of difference.”
