The protest by parents at the kindergarten in the northern district of Reinickendorf was reported by German media earlier this week.

According to Tagesspiegel newspaper, the parents are mostly concerned about the young man being in physical contact with their children, particularly that he takes them to the toilet.

“For some of them, a gay man is automatically a pedophile,” the teacher told the newspaper.

Following the parents’ discontent surrounding his sexual orientation, the teacher requested that he be transferred to another preschool.

However, the nursery’s management backed the man, telling the parents they must accept his orientation or move their children to another kindergarten.

These Muslim parents needs some education in sexual orientation – not from Quran or other religious information , but from facts.
