Judge rules that ‘Anglo Saxon’ father’s 10-year-old son must go to Muslim ex-wife’s choice of ISLAMIC private school

A father who described himself as an ‘Anglo Saxon’ has lost a High Court appeal to prevent his ten-year-old son from attending an Islamic school.

It led to a barrister warning that similar cases will be increasingly common in family courts.

The man, who says he follows no particular faith, said his Muslim ex-wife had chosen the private boys’ school because it was Islamic. He called the institution a ‘school inside a mosque’.

    I wouldn’t like it either, but he already started down this path when he married a Muslim woman.

    Be very cautious when marrying outside of your culture, race, or religion, but for God’s sake never marry a Muslim without first DEMANDING that they publicly convert to Christianity first, even if you yourself aren’t a Christian.

    Someone’s ox is bound to be gored here. I’d be more viscerally sympathetic were it established that she was the plaintiff in the divorce case and had not had grounds, and / or that he’d sought custody of the youngster and been denied.

    At least notionally, solemnizing a marriage in the Catholic Church when you have ‘disparity of cult’ requires the express permission of the local bishop. There’s a reason for that, but when you’re thoughtless enough to be ‘nothing’ you’re likely not to see problems rolling down the road at you.

    He sold his soul by converting to Islam to marry a Muslim. Now he pays the price. May this be a warning to all people – Do not marry a Muslim.
    If a Muslim is not willing to apostasize, that means Islam is more important than the spouse.

      A man has a responsibility to his future children to save himself for a worthy woman.

      I’ve always worried that one of mjhyy kinds might marry a Muslim. Fortunately they seem to be settled down with partners now and my grandkids are too young at this stage to worry about. But I still worry.
