    I don't know how you get "obvious bias" out of a story that's entirely factually correct, shows a picture right at the outset of clearly Muslim children, refers repeatedly to the Muslim parents who are also clear that they object because LGBT is contrary to Islam, says the person in question was also forced to resign from another school, also due to protests from mostly Muslim parents at that different school.

    Apparently to show not-bias they must specifically identify the parents as Muslim not only 10 times in the article but also in the headline....

    From the article:

    Moffat, the author of Challenging Homophobia in Primary Schools, resigned from another primary school – Chilwell Croft Academy, also in Birmingham – after a similar dispute with Muslim parents.

    Moffat, who resigned from his post in December 2013, said then that some Christian parents had also complained. The current dispute centres on Parkfield Community School in the Saltley area of Birmingham.
    What can possibly be your problem with that? The only way that's a problem is if no Christian parents complained - not any. Otherwise the article directly concentrates the focus on the MUSLIM parents at that school.

    Also it is interesting to have brought this up because the current row involves Muslims so they have to link Muslims to Christianity.
    Or the FACTS did.

    Now obviously faithful of both religions share the same view that two dudes is not a marriage, but the religiously faithful in the West of Christian variety are typically in the political right, and Muslims vote for the left over immigration and welfare policy. In fact in imam in England told his congregation that Muslims must vote for labour. Well now that this episode showcases the problems within the left between Muslims and the LGBT so the media needs to spin this as equal to Christianity to make it not seem like a split within the labour base
    Except they didn't spin it as equal.

    Bottom line is you are just upset the headline and the article didn't say something like:

    MUSLIM parents at this predominately MUSLIM school complained....

    Islamic law calls for their death. Iran recently executed another one. Christianity does not.
