Denmark: Politicians want Mohammed Cartoons to be part of school curriculum

The public schools’ association for religion teachers, Religionslærerforeningen, has today urged that the controversial Mohammed Cartoons, which were first printed in Jyllands-Posten newspaper in 2005, should become part of the public school curriculum as quickly as possible.

And now, several political parties – including Socialdemokraterne, Dansk Folkeparti (DF) and Konservative – have voiced their support for that idea, although the degree of support varies.

”It would be natural for the cartoons to become part of the material that the teachers can choose to use,” Mai Mercado, the political spokesperson for Konservative, told DR Nyheder.

”But there is a freedom of method that means the teachers have a right to use other material should they choose to do so.”

But that’s not enough for DF. The right-wing party has called for the controversial illustrations to be obligatory learning in public school classes…

      It’s going over well with me.

    • Any push back is good.

      A small start is better than no start.

      More. Please.

    The Danes now need measures to encourage Muslims to go to countries were they can get all the discriminatory Sharia that they can STOMACH, unless the terrorists in those Islamic paradises blow them up first! The Danes are acquiring an understanding of how DISCRIMINATORY Sharia law is and how it create VIGILANTE MURDERERS!

  • Good.

    This will be stopped under the guise of ‘protecting the children’, ignoring where the threat comes from.

    Excellent. Can we have beheads, cages, antique desecration too?

      Mohammed cartoons in airport arrivals.
      Beheadings, cages, smashed culture and flying gays in airport departures.
      It’s a matter of cultural acclimatization.
