HUNDREDS of Muslim parents will take their children out of school on Friday to step up their protests against “gay lessons”.

Three hundreds kids and parents recently protested outside the gates of the Parkfield Community School in Birmingham waving banners saying “Exploiting Children’s Innocence”.
Mums and dads have been taking their children out of lessons for periods ranging from 20 minutes to an hour to show their opposition to Mr Moffat stance on the curriculum.
But organisers say at least 450 children will be taken out of school for the whole day tomorrow with more school-gates protests planned.
Mr Moffat was awarded the MBE for campaigning against homophobia and has piloted a reading programme called No Outsiders.
It means 470 pupils at the predominantly Muslim school are read stories including Mommy,Mama and Me and King and King.
But some parents say they would rather leave the UK than have their kids taught such lessons.
