All primary schools should hold a nativity play regardless of the religion of their pupils, according to the equality chief Trevor Phillips.
The part that really boggles me is this bit:
He added: "What they should do is make sure that all of their children have access to this very important fundamental, national celebration and tradition.
"Otherwise they're robbing their children of really being part of what it is to be British."
Is Mr. Phillips saying that taking part in a Christian religious activity is an essential part of being British? 'Cos that's sure what it seems like to me. And that makes me profoundly uncomfortable. I'll probably edit this post later as I come up with more thoughts on it, so check this space.
