    Preschoolers Banned from Saying ‘Amen,’ Mentioning the Bible – Even At Christian School

    Preschoolers at a Christian school in Sweden are forbidden from praying before meals, saying ‘Amen,’ or even talking about the Bible.

    According to This Is England, supervisors from the school district say participating in these acts of faith violates a law called “The Education Act,” regardless if they’re done at a Christian school.

    The law states that any educational content containing confessional elements is inappropriate.

    Now, instead of thanking God before meals, the preschoolers are instructed to thank the sun and the rain.

    “As a confessional activity, we knew we could no longer have prayer time while children are at their desks where they learn, so we thought we would add grace as a nice feature during mealtimes,” the preschooler’s managers told reporters. “It’s sad because grace is a tradition.”
