Muslim teacher refused position

A woman in Australia has been refused a teaching position at a Christian school simply because he is a Muslim. SHe is now suing the school.

I think they should have let her work there.

What was she teaching there, out of curiosity?

I agree though, it suprises me sometimes how Christians can be so easy to turn away rather than accept. We're here to build, not destroy - the whole advent of Jesus shows us that.

Then again there could be a side story to it, the media have a knack for biased reporting.

The point is you're not supposed to be refused a position simply because of your religious orientation.
There was a similar case recently where a female kindergarten teacher at a Christian school was fired for being pregnant, because she was not married.

Actually, I'm going to start a thread about that...

at a religious school, you can be refused. It dosen't make much sense having a muslim teaching at a christain school.

If it was a public school, then ofcourse you can't be refused because of your religion.

Why not? Both Abrahamic religions, and Christianity teaches to be respectful and courteous of other religions.

Muslims and Christians have quite similar beliefs in what happened, just some minor differences (I'm sure) which wouldn't make such an impact on the children there.

Yes, they are similar, but no the same.
If children go to a christian school, there is expected to be a christain as a teacher.
