How this public school is shoving Islam down students’ throats will infuriate you

U.S. Representatives Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) have radicalized the Democrat Party pushing their Islam love-affair.

Then Al Jazeera published a feature video on how Israel “benefited” from the Holocaust.

But how this public school is shoving Islam down students’ throats will infuriate you.

Caleigh Wood is a high school junior at La Plata High School in Maryland.

Her grade was docked in her world history class because she wouldn’t write the Islamic conversion creed — There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah — as part of a written assignment.

In addition to this, the teacher taught students that “Most Muslims’ faith is stronger than the average Christian’s.”

Further, a powerpoint presentation that was used to teach the class stated that Muslims believe “Allah is the same God that is worshipped in Christianity and Judaism,” and the class also taught that Islam is a “peaceful religion.”

When she went to school officials asking to opt out of the course so she didn’t have to listen to Islamic propaganda, school officials refused, saying she was forced to complete the class and participate — or else lose points.

In response, the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) filed a lawsuit saying Caleigh’s First Amendment rights were infringed upon, since she was forced against her will to participate in Islamic rituals and listen to religious propaganda.

CBN News reports:

The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) on behalf of the Wood family filed a lawsuit, claiming the school had violated the First Amendment Establishment Clause and the girl’s right not to be forced to profess faith in another religion. Both the Federal District Court and the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the high school’s Islamic curriculum.

Now, the TMLC has appealed the case to the Supreme Court asking the high court to decide whether any legal basis exists to allow public schools to discriminate against Christianity while at the same time promoting Islam.

“Under the guise of teaching history or social studies, public schools across America are promoting the religion of Islam in ways that would never be tolerated for Christianity or any other religion,” TMLC President and Chief Counsel Richard Thompson said in a statement. “I’m not aware of any school which has forced a Muslim student to write the Lord’s Prayer or John 3:16: ‘For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.’”

Critics argue this example of forced religious indoctrination on a Christian student is one in a series of examples proving an anti-Christian sentiment running in America’s public school system due to left-wing politicians controlling the public school system.

And many believe they might be right.

Last Christmas, a public school in Virginia removed Jesus from their school play because Jesus made a few students feel uncomfortable.

And another public school in Nebraska banned Christmas Carols, Christmas Music, and even candy canes and the iconic red and green Christmas colors because it was religious.

But now a school is shoving Islam down students’ throats and nobody is batting an eye.

Even outside the traditional American holiday, leftists are attacking Christianity in public schools left and right.

As we reported, a Christian student was forced by his teacher to wash off an ashen cross while celebrating the Christian tradition of Ash Wednesday.

And, in Ohio, another Christian student was suspended for posting Bible verses on walls and lockers at a school.

Critics argue there are many more stories like these that never see the light of day because the Fake News Media ignores them because of their anti-Christian bigotry.

But we want to know what you think.

Should Christians be forced to participate in Islamic rituals?

Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

  1. Sorry, IMHO, islam is not a religion, it’s a cult. Islam teaches their followers to kill all non believers. Their stated goal is to force islam on the entire world. They teach their kids violence on all non believers. They don’t believe in our Constitution or our form of government. Just look at what is happening in Europe. If Americans don’t open their eyes, it could happen here also.

    • WRONG…!!!!!!!!
      ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION NOR A CULT…!!!!!
      ISLAM IS A TOTALITARIAN DOCTRINE OF WORLD DOMINATION OF THE SAME NATURE AS COMMUNISM, FASCISM AND NAZISM ARE, WHOSE SO CALLED “FAITHFUL” WANT TO RAM DOWN OUR THROATS AS A
      “RELIGION” …
      BUT WHAT HAS BEEN REPORTED IS NOBODY’S FAULT BUT OURS, SINCE WERE THERE NO PIMPS, THERE
      WERE NO WHORES AND WE ARE THE PIMPS FOR ALLOWING THIS CRAP TO HAPPEN…
      WOULD IT BEEN HAPPENING TO A GREAT-GRANDCHILD OF MINE, I WOULD HAVE TAUGHT THAT ROTTEN SCHOOL A LESSON IT WOULDN’T FORGET AND SURE AS HELL, THE COURTS AS WELL BUT….!!!!

        • By “Zionist” you mean Jewish, right? Well, surprise: a Jewish judge just might be more sympathetic to Christians than the Muslims. After all, Jews and Christians are being attacked and killed equally by Muslims, worldwide. Only a fool doesn’t know who his allies are.

          • Many Muslims are being killed as well Leslie, many by the bombs we are selling to Saudi Arabia to kill Yemeni civilians. Whenever Israel has a skirmish with the Palestinians almost always more Palestinians are killed than Israeli Jews.

          • Leslie: Do Not ASSume. – G. Neuburger in his article “The Difference Between Judaism and Zionism,” says : “Judaism and Zionism are by no means the same. Indeed they are incompatible and irreconcilable: If one is a good Jew, one cannot be a Zionist; if one is a Zionist, one cannot be a good Jew.”

      • It is not only being rammed down our throats as good, it is more than likely a pathway to world government with the muslisms in power… that is if they have their way. More of Biblical prediction coming true.. good is bad and bad is good.. more of the reversal.

      • Dear Joe the Plumber,

        Thanks for the insult and Judgement.

        Please tell me where you got your statistics about Muslims.

        And instead of clearing waste out of pipes, you should clear the waste out of your brain,

        • Well, actually most of the killings in the past 15 years in this country have been white supremacists, most raised in Catholic or Protestant homes. Marty whatever stats beats the hatred in your heart and prejudice. We have about 3 million Muslims in this country, very few have murdered, doesn’t common sense tell you that?
          P.S. I am not a plumber, I use that name because the Republicans used a guy called Joe the Plumber to supposedly represent America, don’t you remember. No one has mentioned that because they really don’t know history or even realize Trump has been a lifetime showman and criminal.

          • Joe, you are very ignorant. Try actually reading the Quran and do some research on Muhammad who was very evil. And you call Pres. Trump a criminal and overlook that Obama and the Clintons are extremely corrupt. sad

          • ????history shows that the Islam religion has always been the most evil a nd by their works we shall know them!! Christians don’t cut off heads o f those who do not believe as they do!!

          • You really do need to get some edjumacation. About 65 % of the killings here in the USA are Black on black or gang related, ie MS13, Latino gangs, used to be Bloods against the Crip’s So really where do you find the statistics to back up your claim of “White Supremacists” committing all these crimes. Also FYI I don’t think many blacks would join the “White Supremacy Movement”, nothing wrong with my spelling.

        • joey the pretenda hole cleaner was very disappointed that the shooters at many of the schools and work places were NOT Trump supporters and lifelong GOP voters. Would seem that joey the hole cleaner was/is an avid hore clintoney supporter and voted for the african pretender in 08 and 12. I would wager that if you were to ask joey if President Trump has lied while in office he would quickly repeat the BS that many of the airheads that comment on sites and bash Trump and tell you, that he has told 10,000 lies just since January, 2017.. He conveniently overlooks the fact that kenyan boy was lying long before he ever ran for pubic office in Illinois.. but the Trump haters all want to put halos on that african liar and the wornout old drunken hore that kenyan boy hoped would follow in his footsteps… and who can forget “if you want your doctor, you can keep your doctor” and ” Americans are going to save an average of $2500.00 per year it african care.. and keep their same insurance.. oh and ” your job is going away”, “you did NOT build that”, and “electricity will quadruple in cost”.. to save the environment you know…

      • Joe, go to the ME and see reality. Your stupidity is profound. The Quran DEMANDS violence. It commands that ALL infidels (that’s you) be killed. Try going to any Islamic country and proclaim that Jesus is the Son of God and the only way to Heaven and see what happens to you. WAKE UP!!!!!!!

      • Something to be aware of:

        As long as the Muslim population remains under 3% in any given country, they will be (for the most part) be regarded as a peace-loving minority.
        This is the case in:
        These are (Estimated # from 2016)

        United States — Muslim 2%
        Australia — Muslim 2.8%
        Canada — Muslim 3.2% (Survey from 2011)
        China — Muslim 2.9%

        At 3% to 8%,
        they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.
        This is happening in:
        Spain — Muslim 4%
        Italy — Muslim 4.8%
        Denmark — Muslim 5.4%
        Norway — Muslim 5.7%
        Germany — Muslim 6.7%
        United Kingdom — Muslim 7.7%
        Thailand — Muslim 7.6%

        From 8% on,
        they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply, etc.
        This is occurring in:
        France — Muslim 12%
        Philippines — Muslim 9%
        Sweden — Muslim 8.1%
        Switzerland — Muslim 8.3%
        The Netherlands — Muslim 8.5%
        Trinidad & Tobago – Muslim10.8%

        At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world. When Muslims approach 15% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections, in:
        Guyana — Muslim 15%
        India — Muslim 19.4%
        Israel — Muslim 16%
        Kenya — Muslim 18%
        Russia — Muslim 21%

        After reaching 25%,nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings,and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:
        Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

        At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:
        Bosnia — Muslim 40%
        Chad — Muslim 53.1%
        Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

        From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Joya, the tax placed on infidels,

        such as in:
        Albania — Muslim 70%
        Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
        Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
        Sudan — Muslim 70%

        After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim,such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:

        Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
        Egypt — Muslim 90%
        Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
        Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
        Iran — Muslim 98%
        Iraq — Muslim 97%
        Jordan – Muslim 92%
        Morocco – Muslim 98.7%
        Pakistan – Muslim 97%
        Syria – Muslim 90%
        Tajikistan – Muslim 90%
        Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
        United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

        100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace.. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrassas are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:

        Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
        Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
        Somalia — Muslim 100%
        Yemen — Muslim 100%

        It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos. Police will indeed harass and threaten to charge will breach-of-the-peace, to anyone who tries to enter these NO-GO zones. There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities.. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrassas. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with an infidel is a crime. Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.
        Today’s 1.8 billion Muslims make up 28% of the world’s population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers. Muslims will exceed 50% of the world’s population by the end of this century. ….. the time for action is now

  2. It was declared that religion is not part of the state. So our forefathers Made it clear by putting an amendment in the constitution. That the State will not take over religion, nor will religion take over the state,(separation of church and state. It.does not say anything about saying the lord’s prayer to start the day. Extremist as always stretch the meanings, or should I say twist it to their benefit. Islam should not be taught in our schools. Islam is a state religion, not an american state as our constitution states.

    • Separation of church and state is not expressed in the Constitution. What is says is that no particular religion which will be endorsed by this country (paraphrased). But that doesn’t mean that the left wing nutcases can thumb their noses at the Constitution or turn a blind eye to school districts forcing Islam on students, with disdain for Christianity. Christians have the same freedom of religion that Muslims in this country have, so if you’re going to say “not if you’re a Christian you can’t say or do that,” the Muslims should have to be subject to the same rules living in the United States.

      • Our country is in a free fall into the dustbin of history and it is nobody’s fault but our own….
        We voted in liberals who believe that by feeding the MUSLIM crocodile, they will be eaten last, helped by what has been going on with the LGBT movement which has
        been bent on proving that being straight is ABNORMAL and they are the NORMAL
        species….
        MAY GOD SAVE AMERICA…BECAUSE ITS PEOPLE WILL NOT…!!!!!!

        • Jacob
          Too bad you’re right about our country. All of what you said is to separate everything associated with, founded and established by God. The family, marriage between a man and woman and all related are in Gods plan and the liberals and anti-God people are trying to destroy it. Notice all the hot issues now surround anti-God issues. Many are started with innocent minds at an early age.

      • amazing how many people still have that concept of “separation of church and state” One group in particular should be exterminated for their incessant lawsuits against municipalities. the aclu then bills the city or organization which then pays with taxpayer cash.. time to clean out the swamp that exists outside of DC as well as inside..

    • According to original documents, the Founders meant that there would be no single “denomination” established. It was never declared in the Constitution or elsewhere that religion, especially Christianity was to be prohibited in the public arena. If anything it was incorporated throughout federal buildings, ivy league colleges, the first public schools where children learned to read and spell with Biblical proverbs and other verses. However, since the Constitution is the law of the land, it can not tolerate contrary religions, which would include Islam. There is absolutely no way to reconcile Sharia Law with our founding principles. I agree with Yvonne who said that the schools who allow this practice should lose all Federal funds. Total and dangerous indoctrination.

  3. Come quickly please Lord JESUS!
    America needs JESUS now than ever before! Christians have to wake up & take a stand for our Lord & Savior JESUS CHRIST! we’ve sat back & let the devil sneak his slimy self into our schools, our homes, our government! we have to take our country back for JESUS! if these people believe it’s okay to support all of this muslim crap than we have the right to teach & celebrate JESUS which is “reason for Christmas”! we have to put Almighty God back in our American schools!

  4. Islam is satanic. It denies Jesus His identity as the Son of God. NOTHING that is taught there is true. Satan is gaining more ground in this country every day, but Jesus WILL come and put him and his followers in hell where they belong and we will know true freedom

  5. America is a Judaeo-Christian country. Islam is in direct conflict with these beliefs. Muslims do not belong within our borders. Let them go back to where they came from and stay the h*ll out of our nation.

  6. The worst part of Islam is the Wahhabi sect that dominates Saudi Arabia…
    This is the radical group that took over in 1975 and has steered Saudi Arabia into radicalism.
    This is the group behind Sharia, terrorism and the myth of 72 virgins for any young man who straps on a suicide vest and dies killing Christians.
    This is the group that is responsible for Al-Qaeda, the 911 hijackers and ISIS.
    To bad this fact is beyond the knowledge of Washington or our media.

      • Parduc 911 was perpetrated by muslim fanatics that would rather die while killing people that do not believe what they believe. They have no argument because under islam it is either believe or die, there is no logic or reasoning with an adherent. Any group that believes it is “OK” to kill people that refuse to believe what they believe is fit only to be wiped out without mercy, because they will not have any when they kill those that will not convert to islam. Just so you know, islam in Arabic means “submission”

        The whack jobs that HIJACKED the airliners on 911 were muslim fanatics that would rather die taking as many non-believers with them before they tried reason to win them over. Of course they knew that any argument they had would not convince even a ten year old kid to convert to islam if the kid had already heard of Christianity.

        Islam is an existential threat to any human being that believes in freedom of the individual and free will. This is why muslims know that they will have to subdue and use fear to convince anyone to join their perverted cult. This is why 911 happened, along with all other violence committed in the name of islam.

      • Parduc…Take an English course and learn the difference between “to” and “too”, which is what you should have used. And 911 was totally a muslim plan in their quest of total world control. Guess you think it is fine to face Mecca five times a day to pray, but I don’t.

        • Stop your false 911 propaganda. [Just 1 thing: They “found” Atta’s passport?? ROFL. How seriously retarded one has to be to believe that?] — My ancestors fought against Muslims (and Jews) for centuries. Compare your Talmud to the Koran and you will find the similarities.

          • Pardick, why do you not go back to your slum of a world, the Arab middle east, and fשk yourself, if you please? We do not need ANY moslime p.o.s. In this country! Islam is ,indeed, a cult. And as such, is evil. The best thing we can hope and pray for, is that GOD will help us drive out all muslime in this country. Not send them to the middle east, but kill them. The only good muslime is a dead muslime! And my spelling is fine, and as I intended! Good day my friend! Salami, salami, baloney! Yes indeed! Diaper headed moron!

  7. Those who force Islam down our throats do not represent our country. They do the dirty work of the radicals condemning our country to hell.

    Praise God Donald Trump is president not Hillary.

  8. I agree with Romandelta. Let’s get them, the Muslims, out of the USA and go home to do just the dumb things they want to.

  9. Islam is not a religion it is a political movement that uses deception lies aliases changes identities to usher in confusion. Islam is not a religion Islam is a political movement to gain world powers and dominance. Islam adult males practices ritual pedophilia ritual adultery. Islamic makes abuse and demean woman Islam wants to destroy Christianity and western civilization.

      • You are unfortunately too late. The get them the hell out of here moment passed long , long years ago. We have been invaded by people who want to kill anyone who is not a Muslim. They (Muslims) have been attempting to do this for millennia. When they (Muslims) set up their enclaves with only sharia law to police them, and denied access to the law and citizens they came to conquer we were finished. Sharia law provides that they can kill anyone who is an infidel and in their eyes no matter color or creed we are infidels.

    • It could also be said that Islam is an Organized Crime Ring on steroids!
      What amazes me are some people’s positive opinions about Islam!
      There is NOTHING good or holy about Islam, only hate, violence, and Death! Where is the good in the “god” and of the practices of Islam? It is more like an Organized Crime Syndicate on steroids, than a “religion”!
      In this day and age, factual information is readily available on millions of websites, (and total crap too) it is easy to separate the crap from the TRUTH, by just checking on what the Unholy three books of Islam: Koran, Sira, and the Hadiths actually says, and compare it to what our REAL GOD and the Holy Bible says! You must also look at what history and science have to tell you. However, people must do their OWN diligent research, and not rely solely on what others say. Determine for yourself who the liar is, or who is completely ignorant!
      But, the Dhimwits will continue to ‘believe’ the ignorant and purposeful lies of Islam.

  10. This is absolutely unbelievable and disgraceful. If all this is true — the school needs to be shut down, the administration and teachers who are forcing this islam BS on these kids punished beyond losing their teaching priviledges permanently. This is not educating our young — it is brainwashing and indoctrinating them. islamism is a violent cult NOT a religion and should NOT appear anywhere in AMERICAN schools.

  11. This school system should fire all Muslims employed it! This trash is trying to convert our innocent children into Muslim perverts. If the school system fails to get rid of the Muslim employees, they should be fired immediately. They are attempting to convert our innocent children into perverts.

  12. I have read yalls comments & though I find many ignorant, I don’t blame your lack of knowledge about Islam on you. All yall know is what you hear & read in the western news. But as a Muslima, I must tell yall that Islam is a religion and does NOT teach hate. Islam is a peaceful religion that worships one GOD.

    • Colleen,
      I have a question for you. If what you say is true, then why have all the terrorist attacts such as 9-11, the shoe bomber and countless other attacts were all done by Muslims? Those who truly know the true one God, our lord and savior Jesus Christ, would not do such killing.

    • Colleen….READ YOUR OWN QURAN!!!!! It teaches that ALL must serve Allah or be enslaved or die. It commands that all infidels (non-Muslims) must be killed. NO!!!!!! Islam IS NOT a peaceful religion. It is not even a religion. DARE to do some research on your precious Muhammad, who was EVIL. He invented Islam to get even with the Christians and Jews for not associating with him. That is FACT. His goal was TOTAL world control. And that is STILL the goal of Islam. Wake up and dare to see the truth. Islam is satanic. It DENIES Jesus His true identity as the Son of God because Muhammad would not have anyone to be greater than him. You have been brainwashed. And your ignorance is very obvious. “yall”?????

      • Colleen is an ignorant and uneducated Muslim supporter. What does “yall” mean? I’m reading this and feel like a 10 year old with no life experience is talking! Looking at the news coming out of Germany, the Muslims are on their way to destroy the social fabric of this Country and the Germans don’t stand up for themselves anymore. We can’t make that mistake in our Country but we have already let them get a foothold in schools and sadly in Government. We need to correct these mistakes ASAP!

        • Helga, I agree with you, but like I said, Colleen is very brainwashed. And “y’all” (with an apostrophe which she omitted) is a contraction for “you all” used mainly in the south.

        • Helga, bj, if the nazis(who were evil) would have tried exterminating the moslums rather than the Jews, they would have been a good movement, or government. Colleen is a moron, she should be ignored. And Geronimo made some good points also!

    • Collen … try going to any muslim country and proclaim that Jesus is the Son of God and the only way to Heaven and see what happens to you. A peaceful religion??? You are joking, right?

    • Collen, I do not lack knowledge of islam. I have studied it and read parts of your Quran. I have done my research on Muhammad and his evil intent. It is you who lacks knowledge on your own “religion”. Jesus is there for all who will come to Him and He loves you very much. You need to come to Him and repent and accept Him as your Savor and you will know the truth

    • First off “COLLEEN” no “Muslima” would have a Non-Mozlem name
      Oh, “Drinker of Camel Whizz” your Al Taqiyyia Deception is showing! — Hadith Burkhari Volume 1, no. 234
      Please faithfully follow MoHamMad’s command daily, as in Hadith Burkhari Volume 1, no. 234 says you should do.

      Are you feeling the “Peace” yet?

      • PineAppleFish56,
        Thanks for that post! That was the best of all on the let’s straighten out Colleen posts. Your closing sentence still has me laughing. “ Are you feeling the peace yet? “ lol. Thanks again.

    • And Islam teaches that God is Allah. Taxpayers of America can and should rise up and defend our Public Schools from this abomination of our Country. If not you are condoning this crap being rubbed in your faces.

    • what about the phrase “kill all infidels.” That phrase is all over the Koran & if that isn’t hate, what is it???

    • I have news for you, muslima. Your “religion” is totally incompatible with our Constitution and Western Civilization. Its goal is total destruction and obliteration of “the Infidels”…that’s us, Westerners. Even Thomas Jefferson and Winston Churchill knew what a totalitarian system Islam is; Churchill compared it to “rabies in a dog”. America has too many muslims and hopefully you will all just go back to where you came from and leave us alone. BTW you should take your leftist wackos along with you, as they are closest to you and you only see them as “Useful idiots” in your goal of world domination. They will be the first ones beheaded if you reach your goal of a Caliphate. Won’t be surprised when the Anti-Christ rears his ugly head, he will be a muslim.

  13. This is just prophecy, Satan misleading the many to destruction by calling Islam the true religion. Don’t be fooled keep your eyes on the prize. God forgive them for they no not what they are doing

    • We are already losing it. If we want to keep it we have to round up the illegals and muslims and send them all back where they came from. Neither should be allowed here. And while we are at it, we should send the dems somewhere, too, as they hate everything this country stands for

      • bj:
        I AM SURE YOU FEEL JUSTIFIED IN YOUR OPINIONS, & of corse you have evert right to your opinion. But i think you should know there are millions of american Muslims. You say deport Muslims back to where they came from. Where would you suggest the American Muslims be deported back to?
        & just a side note…. (though I may be an anomaly) I am a staunch Trump supporter.

        • What I said was TRUTH, not opinion. Do the research if you know how. Islam is satanic, as Muhammad was not a prophet, only a self-proclaimed one. Islam is against everything this country stands for. There is no freedom in Islam. Obviously, you have no concept of what muslim countries are like.

        • Colleen,
          I think your smart enough to know your attempt to get your point across is not going well. This country was built, grown and made what it is now on Christian faith. Before the internet our population didn’t care one bit about the Middle East, Muslim’s, Islam or anything else regarding Mohammad. In fact growing up in the 60’s and 70’s all I knew was Jim Croce was in my opinion pretty cool until he turned into this muslim dude with a crazy name? Lol. Our experience with muslims is soured from, can you guess? Right muslims. Violence, extremism, hatred for non muslim people, etc. , etc. Yet you seem surprised at the United States dislike and distrust of this “ peaceful “ sect? I think it’s obvious when someone says go back to where ever it is they come from, there not referring to Miami or Philadelphia or NYC. Perhaps Saudi Arabia, Iraq, or even Iran might be the place they are hinting about? Just not here in the good ol’ U.S. of A.

          • John, you mean cat stevens, not Jim Croce! My Lord man, be careful who you insult! Jim Croce was not a convert to islame! Spelling is as intended.

  14. islam is struggling to get a hold in the
    UNITED STATES. I think in the near
    future islam will eventually fade away.
    This will make the dedicated hard liners upset, and that’s when the islamic war will start, and they will be
    Destroyed. How do you stop
    45 million pissed off americans.

    • You are being very optimistic. No, it will not fade away, as it is a satanic “religion” and satan will rule for a time. It is in Revelation.

  15. This new Islamic push in our schools and in the government is totally wrong . I think these two Islamic congress women should be removed from office based on their extream anti Semitic remarks as well as other anti American remarks . Americans need to stand up against this .

    • @lou how do we do this? We call congress and senate but they refuse to listen ! Because they’re dems. There’s court cases on many things the court refuses to stand for the constitution. Obama did a great job and many idolized him for all this mess,. But all I see is talk and nothing done. Something radical has to take place. And I don’t know the answer but even the courts are against what is right and truth.

  16. As America was founded under Judeo-Christian principles, Christianity has a valid place in a histiry class. Islam is what was fought against, as enshrined in the Marine Corps Hymn, but otherwise had no place in our history, until they started blowing up Americans. Allah is not the same as the Christian God. Islam is very far from being a “religion” of peace as Islam perpetrates the majority of terrorist acts and murders those who aren’t in a particular sect of Islam. Stop schools from pushing destruction on our country!

    • P. … You are right on, but you did not go far enough. Not only is Muhammad’s Allah not God, he is as evil as Muhammad was. Muhammad’s Allah commands that all who do not serve him be killed or enslaved. Muhammad had a very good reason for that. His goal was total world control and he almost succeeded. If not for the Crusaders getting back their stolen lands we may all well be facing Mecca five times a day to pray. The goal of Islam in the U.S. is to replace our Constitution with sharia law. Muslims are very dangerous to our freedom.

  17. I have read the replies to my comment: I agree that killing of innocent people is wrong no matter if it’s muslims, christians, atheists, Wiccan or whoever does this. But there is good & bad in all people. I won’t exchange insults about people, or religions. I wonder, have any of you actually spoken to Muslims, had any conversations with Muslims? You may be surprised just how much we have in common with other religions. I read someone wrote something about my prophet, that he hated Jesus because he wants is jealous or something to that effect of the love people have for Jesus. I m u st admit that’s the 1st time I have heard that particular accusation against my prophet. Did you just make that up, or did you read it somewhere, do you have facts that back up that accusation? & I have read the Noble Quran.

    • Yes, I have spoken to other muslims and they are as brainwashed as you. What I said is the truth. And Muhamad was not a prophet. He made everything up to get back at Christians and Jews for shunning him. God does not recognize him. Muhamad DENIED God’s Son Jesus His true identity. Muhammad would not have anyone be greater than he, so he put Jesus down to prophet status. He went out in the desert to sulk and came back with the Quran, which he claimed the angel Gabriel gave him. WRONG!!!! Either he made the whole thing up or the “angel” was one of satan’s demons. Gabriel KNOWS who Jesus is and would NEVER give someone a book denying it. That is your FIRST clue that islam is FALSE. And God gave us a CHOICE to serve Him or not. He does NOT force us to accept Him, as Islam does. Open your blind eyes and see what is happening to those who do not follow Allah in muslim countries. Leaving islam is a death sentence, but thousands are coming to Jesus because they know that Jesus is real and loves them so much that He died for them. You have the same chance to come to Jesus and be saved. islam cannot save you. Only Jesus can

    • Colleen, I lived in Saudi Arabia and the UAE for 16 years. I have spoken with muslims and probably know more that you do about this false doctrine. Someone suggested that you should read the Bible. I suggest two books that use logic and knowledge to debunk islam. One is “A Scientific Approach to Christianity” by Robert Faid, and the other is “Mere Christianity” by C. S. Lewis. You will find that the facts and logic that are revealed in these books will “set you free”.

      I have no respect for islam because it has no respect for me. I have no respect for Arabs because they have no respect for me.

  18. I SAY CONGRATS TO CHINA FOR PENNING THEM UP TO REPROGRAM THEM…LOL THEY SHOULD BE BANNED FOREVER FROM ANYWHERE BUT THE MIDDLE EAST…

  19. This is truly the sign of the times. Islam is all about converting what the call the infidels by any means necessary. What better way than to force innocent children to recite their abomination of the conversion creed. Firstly allah is an idol that was the chief god among thousands of idols in the kaaba in Meca, and mohammad was nothing more than a thief, a muderer and a pedophile. Their ideology is definitely anti christian, anti american and subversive and oppressive. They should never be allowed near our children. These schools should be uncovered for what they are and be shut down for teaching such propaganda.

  20. Sorry I forgot…..I don’t think school should be a place where religion is an issue, that’s why we have masjids, & christians have their bible classes. Schools is meant to teach academics

    • Public schools don’t teach anymore. It is all liberal indoctrination. The dems hate Christians and for some reason think muslims are on their side in destroying this country. They are correct that muslims intend to destroy everything this country stands for. They are just too ignorant to understand that they are part of the intended destruction

  21. If my kids were at school age today they would never go to public school. It is a crying shame the direction our education system is going, parents you must fight back and not let your children be brain washed.

  22. Again,We are in the Twilight Zone.Christians help the poor, ect.All Over the world.Muslims blow up and behead people all over the world.And for SOME Inconceivable the left LOVES muslims and Hates Christians(Of Coarse) Just like they LOVE MINORITY thugs and Hate the police, who actually Help people and SAVE lives Instead of TAKE them.I say”minority”Thugs,Because they DO Hate White thugs(And Everything Else white) I have NO understanding or Words for these people,I feel like im in some Bizzare Movie where everything is upsidedown and Backwards,What else can i say.Semper Fi

  23. Colleen
    You sound like a reasonable person that has been lead by false information. I suggest you read the Holy Bible. It was written by men that were inspired by God. Read in the Bible, 2 Timothy chapter 3.

  24. It is way past time that the American people wake up to what is happening in their world and speak up about the attempt for this disguised religion is working to destroy us through indoctrination of our children in our schools! It is time for the citizens of this country stand up and take back our communities and especially our schools including our colleges and universities! Stop listening these rag heads and remove them from our schools and every part of our state and federal government. These foreigners have forced their chaotic belies on us saying they are owed the right to use our free speech against us and pass laws to keep us from removing them from our society! Come on people, get involved with you freedom and our learning process to save our country from destruction from a terroristic way of life where if you do not accept their so called “religion” YOU DIE!

  25. Christian students should be allowed to opt out of these religious teachings in public schools if they wish. As the story stated, no one is forcing a Moslem student to recite the Lord’s Prayer as part of a history class. I would like to know where are the atheists and those who against Christianity in schools on this? Why are they not up in arms and screaming from the roof tops about the teaching of Islam in public schools? OR ARE they all scared of the Moslems to say anything against them? I believe that is the main reason no one is really saying anything against the religious teachings of Islam in our public schools. Those who came out against Christianity are too gutless and ballless to come out against the teachings of the religion of Islam in our public schools. They do not have the stomach to really stand up for their convictions. Which in my mind means that they really have no convictions at all. They know that Christians will not demand their deaths like the Moslems will should they say anything bad about Islam. They are nothing but cowards.

  26. “Allah is the same God that is worshiped in Christianity and Judaism” ???
    NOPE!
    The God of the Bible is NOT the false god of Islam. And only the ignorant would say that.
    Oh, no no NO.! NOT the same God! The koran goes against everything in the Word of God.
    Jesus is God—but not in the koran.
    Jesus was crucified—but not in the koran
    Jesus is the Son of God—but not in the koran
    God is Triune—but not in the koran
    God is love—but not in the koran
    The Blood of Jesus alone atones for sin—but not in the koran
    Jesus saves when you repent and believe—but not in the koran
    No muslim knows if they will even merit heaven unless their good deeds outweigh their bad deeds.
    UNLESS one murders an infidel in the cause of Jihad. THEN they go right to paradise and their 72 virgins.

    If you think they worship YHWH Almighty, you are sadly and dangerously mistaken!

    Islam’s “god” COMMANDS them to attack, violate, rape, enslave, torture, and behead all non-Muslims. Since they are taught from the cradle that the unholy ‘koran’ teaches that they are superior to everyone else, Muslims believe that everything belongs to them, including your wives, children, land, and everything else you possess. They just haven’t snatched it from you yet.

    Get a clue. Christianity and Islam are polar opposites. Read a little history and inform yourself about the 14 centuries of Islamic barbarism, genocide, and the destruction of entire civilizations in which churches and other houses of worship were razed, people by the millions beheaded. Irreplaceable libraries and works of art burned and inventions and discoveries stolen from the peoples that they had conquered and then claimed by Islam as their own inventions and discoveries.
    …And all of this is STILL happening, right now, in the 21st Century!

    The Crusades were to take back the Holy Land which had been occupied by Jews and Christians for centuries, but which was stolen by Muslim terrorists at that time.

    Get a clue.
    They classify smoking a cigarette or listening to music as criminal, but yet find it perfectly acceptable, legal, and permissible to inflict torture, brutality, rape, crucifixion, beheading, and theft! That’s Islam!

    • Allah is actually a moon god. I looked up information on it. It is a statue of a fat man with the crescent moon on the belly.

  27. Actually, there is NO PROOF
    that the people of the same tribe who would eventually become MoHamMad’s MudScums, are in any way related to Abraham.
    We have been lied to, and many have unfortunately bought into those lies!
    Islam has no province for what they ‘claim’. They ‘claim’ to be the final revelation of “god’s” word. Yet the followers of this so-called ‘religion’ claim that they ‘worship’ the same ‘god’ as Christians and Jews and are an “Abrahamic religion”, yet be utterly alien to Jewish and Christian modes of belief, theology, and practice!
    Any ‘successor’ religion would necessarily have to fulfill and compliment the prior religion. Jesus and his Ministry were predicted many times in the Torah. One of the great advantages of having the Old Testament and the New Testament in one Bible is that they give support to each other. Together they strengthen our faith that both are God’s word.
    The Old Testament was the Prediction, and the New Testament is the Fulfillment of God’s Word. There are NO predictions in the Torah or the Holy Bible that refers to Islam or Mohammad!
    However, Islam does not fulfill or complement anything Jewish or Christian… it instead is antagonistic, antithetical, contradictory, diametrically opposed, and irreconcilable in all ways!

    How could this “Allah” of pre-Mohammad pagan Arabia be the same as the God of Israel?
    “Allah” or the ‘Moon-god’ who was the Head ‘god’ of the pagan Quraysh Meccan Arab tribe’s pantheon of about 360 deities.

    So can anyone tell me why, just because they ‘worship’ only one fabricated ‘god’ that this so-called ‘god’ is the SAME GOD as worshiped by Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob?

    They unknowingly worship the devil named Satan!

    • You are correct. islam is satanic. If there really was an “angel” who gave Muhammad the Quran, it was one of satan’s demons.

  28. If I would have been that student, I would have walked out of that school. I wouldn’t matter to me whether I got suspended or not.

  29. No, we don’t force our religion on the Islamic people so we shouldn’t be forced either. Let people believe in what they want without any interference.

  30. This is a disgrace. They don’t teach Christianity but Islam. I would take my child out of the school and get a lawyer and fight this in court. Religion does not belong in a public school Much less Islam which is a terroristic religion. Remove your children and teach them at home at home if you can. This is America a Christian country not a Islamic country.

  31. First of all, this is a Christian nation. I don’t know who started calling us a Judaeo/Christian nation. We believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God. They don’t. The bible said, if we reject the Son, we reject the Father. I don’t have any ill feelings with Jews, but hope they see that they are wrong. The quote, by Thomas Jefferson,”Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” is being twisted. The word respecting means, with reference or regard to. In other words, Congress cannot make laws telling us what (Christian) religion by which we must worship our God. Our nation has always been steeped in bible truth. It was not prohibiting people in politics from their belief in God, or their manner of worship. But it was keeping them from running our religious lives. Islam, Buddhism, Satanism, etc. were not part of this. They do not worship the God of all creation, the Christian God.

    • God started Christianity in the OT by working w the Jewish nation- hence Judaeo Christian foundations clearly seen in the Bible. Romans says, he is a “true Jew (not biological) who is one of the heart.” Many biological Jews refuse to believe in Jesus as their promised Messiah. Salvation is open to anyone who will put their faith in Jesus as their Savior, asking Him to forgive their sin thru His grace.

  32. To all those who have commented about Muslim acts of terrorism, they have unquestionably happened. But ONLY Muslims are terrorists? Doesn’t anybody remember Timothy McVeigh? And he wasn’t a leftist, either.

    • Your right, my government name is not an Islamic name, my Islamic name is Fatima. I see no reason for you to be hostile with me, however if this is how you have a reasonable conversation, or the only way you know how to express your opinion, then it is you that is to be pitied. I hope you do find peace in your life as I have.

    • Sorry Tom, I meant that post for someone else, my comp froze up b4 I could post it, then when I got it going again, I hit “post” & I think the comment went to you. But since I am chatting with you……I agree 100% with the comment you posted about others also can fit the criteria of a terrorist

  33. what about the phrase “kill all infidels.” That phrase is all over the Koran & if that isn’t hate, what is it???

  34. Where is the so-called Freedom From Religion Foundation in this, or do they just object toChristian and Jewish issues?

  35. Hey numb nuts tom,Yea tim mcveigh,Actually 2 guys ,24 years ago ass!!Muslims kill Many people ALL over the World EVERY day you Fool!! One Nut over TWO decades ago,And you Morons COMPARE it to MASS MURDERERS that do it EVERYDAY!!???? I Hate to get personal,But Mutants like tom drive me Nuts!Man,The freakin STUPIDITY like This tool is What kills this country now.Take your a.. to the middle east!Semper Fi

  36. This article raises some valid concerns.

    1) Caleigh Wood’s grade was docked in her world history class because she wouldn’t write the Islamic conversion creed — There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah — as part of a written assignment.

    I understand conservative Christians wary of the way even a secular and academic study of religion is taught in the public schools. In his monumental book, The Story of Christian Origins, secular historian Dr. Martin A. Larson (an atheist) discusses contradictory gospel accounts of the resurrection, and concludes: “The Assumption itself is dismissed with half a dozen words. Such cursory treatment and fantastic contradictions prove that the whole story was a garbled invention.”

    2) In addition to this, the teacher taught students that “Most Muslims’ faith is stronger than the average Christian’s.”

    Today’s Christians are really secular! On the issue of women pastors and women teaching or holding authority over men, conservative Christian blogger Matt Walsh laments that lay Christians today are more beholden to contemporary social and cultural norms than to Christ or Paul.

    Sexual morality for Christians is detailed in I Corinthians 7. If Christians actually followed the biblical commands against fornication and sexual immorality in general (Romans 1:24-27; I Corinthians 5:1,9-12, 6:9-10,15,18; I Thessalonians 4:3-5; ); as well as the commands that women cover their heads while worshiping (I Corinthians 11:5-14); Christian women are to dress modestly and prudently, and are not to be adorned with braided hair, gold or pearls or expensive clothes (I Timothy 2:9); Christian women are to keep silent in the churches and Christian women are not allowed to teach nor hold authority over men (I Corinthians 14:34-35; I Timothy 2:11-15)… Christianity would resemble Islam!

    The Puritans of Massachusetts enacted America’s first law against gambling in 1638. In 1682, the Quakers in Pennsylvania passed their own law against gambling and “such like enticing, vain, and evil sports and games.” During the period from 1830 to 1860, lotteries were banned across America. By 1908, nearly every state in the nation had banned horse racing. Muslims were a virtually nonexistent minority in Protestant-dominated America when these laws when into effect. Nor did the Muslims coin the term “sin city” to refer to Las Vegas. The Muslims didn’t coin the term “demon rum” to refer to alcohol, nor were the Muslims responsible for the Prohibition of alcohol in the United States. Conservative Christians also take a dim view of alcohol.

    3) Further, a powerpoint presentation that was used to teach the class stated that Muslims believe “Allah is the same God that is worshipped in Christianity and Judaism…”

    Sholars and academicians say likewise.

    Unlike the ancient eastern reincarnationist religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism) with a pantheon of demigods, a belief in karma and reincarnation, yoga, chakras, kundalini, etc., Islam stands alongside Judaism and Christianity as an *Abrahamic* faith. Introduced among the Arabs in the 7th century, Islam spread rapidly throughout the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia. Within a century, Islam controlled an empire larger than that of Rome or Alexander. “Islam” means “submission” — to God.

    “There is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is His messenger.”

    A solemn recitation of this confession of faith is required of every Muslim. According to Islamic tradition, the archangel Gabriel appeared to Mohammed in 610 AD and imparted to him the wisdom of the Koran, or “Recital.” At first, Mohammed was afraid he was going insane or was possessed by an evil spirit. But he soon became convinced this calling was truly from God.

    Muslims revere the Koran’s “surahs” or chapters as the literal word of God, superseding all previous revelations (including the Bible) and correcting the alleged theological “errors” that had crept into Judaism and Christianity. The Koran itself is somewhat smaller than the New Testament.

    Mohammed taught that Jews and Christians have been worshiping Allah under a different name. The Koran recognizes Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, John the Baptist, Jesus and other biblical personalities as genuine prophets through whom God spoke. Whereas the Jewish people are said to be descended from Abraham through Isaac, Mohammed’s family lineage is traced to Abraham through the patriarch’s grandson Kedar, son of Ishmael (Genesis 25:13).

    Muslims, however, regard Mohammed (570-632 AD) as the greatest and last (or “seal”) of the prophets. Muslims deny the divinity of Jesus, as well as his crucifixion and resurrection. “They do blaspheme who say: ‘God is Christ the son of Mary’ …Christ was merely an apostle,” the Koran asserts.

    Despite the high status accorded to Mohammed, Muslims do not worship him as a divine figure. For this reason, Muslims dislike being called “Mohammedans,” for the term implies they worship Mohammed. “We of Islam,” they will carefully point out, “are monotheists. People of one God, like the Jews. We honor Moses and Jesus as prophets. And we honor Mohammed as the final and greatest prophet. But we do not worship him. We worship only one God: Allah.”

    Muslims pray towards the holy city of Mecca five times each day. On Friday, Muslims observe a special day of public prayer in the mosque. During the entire holy month of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Muslim year, Muslims fast during daylight hours. Muslims are also expected to make a “hajj” or pilgrimage to the sacred city of Mecca at least once in their lifetime, if it is at all possible. Almsgiving to the poor, aged and orphans is another obligation required of Muslims. A yearly 2.5 percent “zakat” tax is levied against one’s total assets. In addition to these major directives, the Koran forbids gambling, the eating of carrion, the consumption of animal blood, food offered to pagan gods and idols (compare Genesis 9:3; Acts 15), pork and alcohol. The Koran vividly describes punishment in hell and reward in paradise.

    The “Sharia,” or Islamic Law has been condemned in the West as cruel and barbaric. The penalty for habitual thievery may be loss of a hand. The penalty for premarital sex may be 100 lashes in public. The Islamic codes of justice, however, are not that different from the civil and criminal laws found in Exodus 21-23. Muslim countries have significantly lower crime rates than the Western nations.

    When the Muslims conquered India, they attacked what they believed to be “idol worship” and polytheism. Many Hindu temples were destroyed. On doctrinal issues, Muslims oppose the Christian worship of the Trinity, which they term “the triple God.” As in Judaism, God is a singular Being, who has no equal. Muslims see the Trinitarian concept of God as disguised polytheism and, therefore, sacreligious. The Catholic veneration of saints and use of images in worship is also regarded as idolatry and polytheism by Muslims.

    4) And the class was taught that Islam is a “peaceful religion.”

    Poets, priests, and politicians say likewise. Democrats don’t deny we’re at war, they just hesitate to call it “radical Islam” because the term indirectly demonizes all Muslims. It’s like referring to the Ku Klux Klan as “Christians” when they clearly do not speak for all of Christianity. Democrats take their cue from *Republican* George W. Bush who never used the term “radical Islam.”

    After 9-11, George W. Bush told the American people our quarrel is not with Islam but with a radical faction within Islam known as Al-Quaeda. Shortly after 9-11, George W. Bush visited a mosque: something Barack Obama was unable to do until late in his presidency, as Islamaphobic “birthers” were labeling him a “Muslim” even though Article VI, Section 3 of the Constitution clearly states: “No religious test shall be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Taunted by Republicans to declare war on “radical Islamic terrorism,” Democrats are turning to an unlikely ally: George W. Bush.

    President Barack Obama, under pressure to be more aggressive on terrorism, regularly cites his predecessor’s refusal to demonize Muslims or play into the notion of a clash between Islam and the West. It’s a striking endorsement from a president whose political rise was predicated on opposition to the Iraq war and Bush’s hawkish approach in the Middle East.

    As Hillary Clinton put it, “George W. Bush was right.”

    Laying out her plan to fight domestic terrorism, Clinton reminded voters in Minneapolis of Bush’s visit to a Muslim center six days after the Sept. 11 attacks. She even quoted his words from that day about those who intimidate Muslim-Americans: “They represent the worst of humankind, and they should be ashamed of that kind of behavior.”

    Bush, of course, was not referring to the 2016 Republican presidential field. Clinton certainly was.

    Jeb Bush has also said the U.S. should follow his brother’s lead, arguing that “we can’t dissociate ourselves from peace-loving Muslims.”

    During the 2001 mosque visit, one of several occasions Bush denounced anti-Muslim bias, he stood alongside Muslim leaders and quoted the Quran about evil-doers being ultimately defeated. He insisted that intimidation against Muslims in America would not stand.

    “The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam,” Bush said.

    Donald Trump wants to ban ALL Muslims from coming to the United States. He’s not singling out the extremists, rather he’s castigating all Muslims. Even Bill O’Reilly was critical of Donald Trump in this regard, telling him, “If you say no Muslims can travel here from overseas, you’re hurting the United States’ position against ISIS,” O’Reilly told Trump in a wide-ranging interview. “We need the friendly Muslim nations. You can vet them, but you can’t insult the whole religion,” O’Reilly said.

    Even Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right National Front who once compared Muslims praying in the streets to the Nazi occupation, thinks Donald Trump has gone too far. Asked in a television interview about Trump’s proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States, Le Pen said the idea was too much. “Seriously, have you ever heard me say something like that?” asked Le Pen, who has been accused of encouraging Islamophobia in France. “I defend all the French people in France, regardless of their origin, regardless of their religion.”

    Indian Christian conservative Dinesh D’Souza similarly says conservative Muslims don’t hate Christians, he says they hate the secular West, which is ironic, as secularism means religious neutrality and acceptance of people of other faiths as well as those of no faith.

    • Vasu Murti,
      You obviously are familiar with the ‘copy paste’ features on your device. The first part of your text is quotes from a Christian hating atheist. You go on to refer to past times in church when women wore scarves and compare them to burka wearing Muslim women? We live in different times, Muslim people seem to long for centuries old traditions. Fine. No problem here, just keep it to yourselves. I’ve looked into the same things your using as comparisons. If you don’t believe Jesus Christ was the Son of God that’s your choice. I certainly don’t want to chop your head off for not believing!! Yet I can’t say that about hard line Muslim people. Your clearly not stupid, in fact you seem well spoken and educated. So you must understand Americans dislike and contempt when all we see or hear is the hate that is everywhere. You compare Jews and Muslims in your text, we see and hear those protesting student aged men calling for death to Israel. America the great satan. Are you saying we should believe you ( one in a billion ) or our lying eyes? So when you go on about how alike we all are and how misunderstood Islam is, just know, we’re watching you. Seeing is believing.

  37. In 1995, a joint statement of current law regarding religion in public schools was published by a variety of religious and civil liberties organizations. This statement served as the basis for U.S. Department of Education guidelines intended to alleviate concerns about constitutional religious activities in schools.

    Here are general rules concerning what school personnel and students may do:

    The history of religion and comparative religion are permissible school subjects so long as the approach is objective and serves a legitimate educational purpose.

    Students may study the role of religion in the history of the United States.

    Schools may discuss various religious groups‚ beliefs about the origin of life on Earth in comparative religion or social studies classes.

    Students have the right to pray or to discuss their religious views with their peers so long as they are not disruptive.

    Students may express their religious beliefs in the forms of reports, homework and artwork so long as such expression meets the other criteria of the assignment.

    Religious or anti-religious remarks made in the ordinary course of classroom discussion or student presentations and that are germane are permissible, but students do not have the right to give sermons to a captive audience.

    Students have the right to distribute religious literature to their classmates, subject to reasonable time, place and manner restrictions.

    Students have the right to speak to, and attempt to persuade their peers about religious topics just as they do with regard to political topics.

    Student religious clubs in secondary schools must be permitted to meet and to have equal access to campus media to announce their meetings.

    Public schools may teach objectively about religious holidays and may celebrate the secular aspects of the holiday.

    Students may wear religious messages on clothing, just as they may wear religious attire, such as yarmulkes, crosses, crucifixes, and head scarves.

    Students may be released for religious instruction off school premises.

    Students may read the Bible or other religious literature during their free time at school.

    Faith groups that support the First Amendment and oppose government-sponsored prayer in public schools include:

    National Council of Churches; American Baptist Churches, USA; Christian Church (Disciples of Christ); The Episcopal Church; Evangelical Lutheran Church in America; Friends Committee on National Legislation; Mennonite Central Committee USA; Presbyterian Church (USA); General Conference of Seventh Day Adventists; United Church of Christ; United Methodist Church; Unitarian Universalist Association; American Jewish Congress; Anti-Defamation League; Central Conference of American Rabbis; National Council of Jewish Women; North American Council for Muslim Women; Soka Gakkai International USA.

    Most religious denominations, across the theological spectrum, have issued formal statements supporting the Supreme Court’s prayer and Bible-reading decisions. These people of faith value the hard-won freedom of conscience that belongs to all of us.

  38. Islam is NOT a religion…….It is a Government of foreign Nations, attacking America from a Trojan Horse! They act as Prosecutors, Judge, Jury, and then sentence innocent people to die in their WARPED sense of righteousness………Deport Omar & Tlaib to where they can be more “comfortable” in their ways!

  39. I think that the All School District Director should read the First Amendment “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
    Note that it says “Congress Shall make NO Laws” the School Districts are placing themselves above the Congress of the United States, I DON’T THINK SO, they derive their existence & position and some of their funding from from Congress.

  40. If you believe in ‘doing unto others…’ wouldn’t you treat non-Christian religions with the kind of respect and sensitivity you’d want Christians to be treated?

    You care about persecution of Christians. Are you equally concerned about the persecution of Muslims in Myanmar or the persecution of Baha’is in Iran? Historically, atheists were persecuted, too. Does your outrage over discrimination extend to them as well?

    Thomas Jefferson was laissez-faire towards all belief and disbelief, not caring whether his neighbor believed in twenty gods or no god. Religious leaders warned that if Jefferson were elected president, Bibles would be confiscated, churches would be closed down, etc. Clearly, that didn’t happen. Secularists are not atheists.
    The First Amendment says Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, nor prohibiting the free exercise thereof. So theists are free to express themselves, as are atheists: it just can’t be state-sponsored.

    Aren’t non-Christian religions just as good as Christianity?! Are non-Christians second-class citizens in this country?

    The First Amendment reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion (meaning the government can’t favor one religion over another) nor prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

    “…respecting an establishment of religion,” in a broader sense of the word, really does mean freedom of belief. Thomas Jefferson was laissez-faire (“hands-off!”) towards all belief and disbelief, not caring whether his neighbor believes in twenty gods or no god. Religious leaders warned that if Jefferson were elected, Bibles would be confiscated, churches would be closed down, etc. Clearly, that didn’t happen. Secularists are NOT atheists.

    We’re NOT talking about radical Islam and beheadings, but about Muslim Americans and persons merely mistakenly perceived to be Muslim (e.g., Sikhs, Hindus, Bahai’s and Buddhists) facing discrimination here in the United States.

    The Department of Justice noted that it has investigated over a thousand hate crimes and other acts of discrimination against faith groups since September 11th, 2001. This disturbing trend correlates to a steady rise in crimes committed against Muslims and those perceived to be Muslim. The real 2014 total of anti-Muslim hate crimes could be as many as six thousand or more.

    In February 2016, a still-unidentified suspect broke into a Minneapolis mosque and vandalized it. Earlier this month, a Spokane, Wash., man broke into a local Sikh gurdwara and caused $35,000 worth of damage; he told police he believed he had discovered a mosque affiliated with ISIS. And a Buddhist monk was recently attacked in Oregon after a man mistook him for a Muslim.

    The Lincoln County Commission in North Carolina Chair Carrol Mitchem told local news outlets that he has no intention of allowing any non-Christians to offer invocations before commission meetings because Christians constitute a majority in the United States. “I don’t need no Arab or Muslim or whoever telling me what to do or us here in the county what to do about praying,” Mitchem said. “If they don’t like it, stay the hell away.”

    That is what religious discrimination actually looks like.

    It’s a far cry from asking bakers to obey public accommodation laws.

    Joseph Callahan commented along these lines on the Huffington Post:

    “It is pretty hard now days to turn on the television or open a newspaper without hearing about ‘the war on Christianity’ and see devout believers lamenting on how horribly they are ‘persecuted’ in America today. With gay marriage, abortion and atheists removing God from every aspect of the government, it seems pretty obvious that we secular citizens are using separation of church and state as a new battlefield against religion. How horrible a life American Christians must be forced to live.

    “In Iran, Christians are being executed for their faith. In Myanmar, you can be thrown in prison just for owning a Bible. In North Korea, well, you face death just for believing any god exists. The 2015 report from the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) shows that thirteen million people have fled seven countries (Syria, Iraq, Nigeria, Central African Republic (CAR), Eritrea, Burma, and Afghanistan). Many of those displaced are Christians, and mostly due to fear of violence and/or death.

    “The Bible, and distributing it, is restricted in over fifty countries worldwide, and spreading the gospel will land you in jail or executed in many of those. But none of this compares to the wholly American horror of (possibly) being forced to bake a cake for a gay wedding! How could we compare the American ‘war on Christianity’ to the Christians (and other religious beliefs) persecuted worldwide? I mean, our own little bubble, and our own discomforts in the first world are all that really matter. The rest of the world isn’t us, so we shouldn’t compare ourselves to them, right?

    “In America today, you can proudly say, ‘I’m a Christian’ and carry a Bible with you everywhere you go. You can go to any church you want to without being arrested. You can say anything you want! You can even proclaim that you worship the Giant Spaghetti Monster, and all the persecution you will receive is strange looks from some people.’

    “Yet, in this, one of the most religiously tolerant nations, Christians are screaming persecution just because our laws are changing to embrace everyone’s belief structure. By not allowing one faith to force their beliefs down our legal throats, the country has launched a ‘war’ on (one specific) faith.”

    Anyone perceived to be Muslim, like Sikhs, Hindus, Bahai’s and Buddhists, often face the same discrimination. Religious minorities in this country are merely asking for the same level of consideration and equal treatment given to Christians.

    It was reported in the Indo-American press in either the ’90s or 2000s that a coalition of Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains were going to court to demand a completely religion-neutral society, which does not favor one religion over another, nor one set of beliefs or disbeliefs over another.

    • In the last twenty years, thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of Churches, Synagogues, Hindu, & Buddhist temples have been shot-up and burned, but no “Mainstream Media Reporter” noticed any of it until some nutter shoots up a mosque! …But ONLY about the mosque!

      Every day in the world, Mozlems are murdering people, enslaving people, burning their Churches, Temples, and Synagogues (sometimes with them in it!)… but that’s NEVER reported by the MSM, and certainly not admitted to by any other Mozlem group.
      There is a List of Islamic Terror Attacks for the Past 30 Days.
      According to thereligionofpeace (dot)com there have been 34,787 deadly Terror Attacks, as of 03/27/19, since 9-11, some large some small, but always with deadly intent. However, this list does not even count the TOTAL number of the hundreds of thousands KILLED during these (as of today, 5/25/19 a current total of 35,071) deadly Terror Attacks!
      (They used to show the last 90 days but the list was incredibly LONG!)
      We are tired of the arrogance, excuses, and whiny demands.
      It’s time for Moslems to take responsibility and end the violence.

      We are not Islamophobic, we are Islamo-realistic, trying to inform the Islamo-ignorant!

  41. When in the military in Afghanistan we searched Muslim homes and many times came across Muslim men with sheep. Our commands were “Pull up your pants and back away from the sheep”. Here in America they don’t have ready access to sheep, so they go to Mosques pretending to pray and bend over while their “buddies” come up behind them. They love how they BAA….BAA.

  42. Honestly, all this chatter has become a hate fest of Islam & Muslims….ok fine if that’s your feelings about Islam, then so be it. But I think some are forgetting the issue here… the problem here is the schoolboard attempting to make students adapt to something that has no business being brought into the classes to begin with. Fine go ahead & hate what you will, but it’s the school board that is in the wrong here.

    • HATE FEST?
      What is there about Islam that is to be LOVED?
      Mohammad’s Islam: abuse, assassinations, beheadings, bombings, butchery of live people, car and truck bombing, enslavement, extortion, gassing, Hijrah, jihad, hate, honor-killing, humiliating people, imperialism, jailing without due process, kidnapping, lying, maiming, making-war, murdering, occupy, pedophilia, racism, rape, rocket bombing, shelling, slaughter, slavery, slayings, starvation, stealing, stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals, suicide bombers, taxing of non-muslims, terror, torture, tossing homosexuals off buildings… What is there to love?

  43. The parents of the students should protest and keep their children out of school until the school board recants and stops proselytizing for the Islamic faith.

  44. Conservatives demonize Islam as cruel and barbaric, forgetting Christianity’s own record of barbarism, whereas liberals merely see Islam as six hundred years behind the secular West. Think back to what Christianity was like six hundred years ago: the Crusades, the Inquisition, burning witches at the stake, etc. If Christians today are tolerant and civilized, it’s due to the past five hundred years of SECULAR social progress nearly all of which were resisted by previous generations of Christians:

    …democracy and representative government in place of monarchy and belief in the divine right of kings; the separation of church and state; the abolition of human slavery; the emancipation of women; birth control; the sexual revolution; LGBT rights…

    A hundred years ago, for example, ALL Christian churches opposed birth control. Indian Christian conservative Dinesh D’Souza similarly says conservative Muslims don’t hate Christians, he says they hate the secular West, which is ironic, as secularism means religious neutrality and acceptance of people of other faiths as well as those of no faith.

    We really live in a secular society. Witches are no longer burned at the stake and women are not required to keep silent in the churches. On the issue of women pastors and women being allowed to teach or hold authority over men, conservative Christian blogger Matt Walsh laments lay Christians today are beholden to cultural norms, rather than Christ or Paul.

    He’s right. Christians react with disbelief, “Boy!” rather than with pious platitudes (“…also, since we are all sinners, we shouldn’t be proud or judgmental…”) at the idea that Christians today would be expected to actually follow New Testament teaching on sexual morality, the Scriptures they publicly proclaim to believe in.

    It proves my point as well: Christians in the West have embraced the past five hundred years of secular social progress, nearly all of which contradicts biblical tradition: democracy and representative government in place of monarchy and belief in the divine right of kings; the separation of church and state; the abolition of (human) slavery; the emancipation of women; birth control; the sexual revolution; LGBT rights. Social progress which even conservative Christians take for granted.

    When conservative Christians dig in their heels and resist social change like animal rights, they lack credibility and are not in a position to resist social and moral progress for all mankind (including atheists and agnostics) by appealing to Scripture if they aren’t even following the very Scripture they claim to believe in.

    It was reported in the Indo-American press in either the ’90s or 2000s that a coalition of Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains were going to court to demand a completely religion-neutral society, which does not favor one religion over another, nor one set of beliefs or disbeliefs over another. Thomas Jefferson was laissez-faire (“hands-off!”) towards all belief and disbelief, not caring whether his neighbor believes in twenty gods or no god. Religious leaders warned that if Jefferson were elected, Bibles would be confiscated, churches would be closed down, etc. Clearly, that didn’t happen. Secularists are NOT atheists.

    The word secular merely means “nonreligious.” phrases and words like “good morning,” “good night,” “hello,” and “goodbye” are secular. Shakespeare is secular. Beethoven is secular. Women’s suffrage was secular. Fornication is secular. Alfred Hitchcock movies were secular. I Love Lucy was secular. The sexual revolution was secular. Beatlemania was secular. The Way We Were was secular. Disco was secular. Grunge music was secular. Pointing out that an unfertilized egg will never hatch into a chicken as an analogy distinguishing contraception from abortion on nonreligious grounds is secular. The word secular merely means nonreligious. Conservative Christians react as if it were a dirty word.

    Yes, theists have the right to express themselves, as do atheists, it just can’t be state-sponsored. When theistic slogans like “in God We Trust” are placed on coins and currency, then it’s state-sponsored and it violates the First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion nor prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

    People immigrate to the United States not necessarily because it is a Christian country as conservative Christians suggest, but because it is wealthy. All over the world, they’re emulating the SECULAR American pop culture: Disneyland, Coca Cola, rock & roll, MTV, Miley Cyrus, etc… not Christianity.

    I once asked Fouad (the half-Russian and half-Indonesian study partner of my friend Chris when Chris and I were roommates in college), about his impressions of America, as Fouad and his family defected from the former Soviet Union in 1979 while Fouad was still in high school. Fouad spoke glowingly about the wealth and standard of living in the United States, and not a word about the ideals and political freedoms upon which this country was founded: freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, etc.

    “America did not invent human rights. In a very real sense… human rights invented America.” — Jimmy Carter

    “I saw courage both in the Vietnam War and in the struggle to stop it. I learned that patriotism includes protest, not just military service.” – John Kerry

    Phyllis Schlafly considered etiquette (e.g., men lighting cigarettes for women) as special privileges which women would lose if the Equal Rights Amendment were passed, rather than understanding that legislation prohibiting discrimination on the basis of gender are as necessary as laws against racial discrimination. Many young women today might not identify themselves as “feminists” (there was some discussion along these lines about Taylor Swift on Salon.com in 2013), but they take for granted the rights which were fought for by previous generations of abolitionists, suffragettes, etc.:

    …the right to vote; the right to own property; ending the double-standard permitting sex outside of marriage for men but not for women; ending the stigma of unwed motherhood; ending the stigma single motherhood, ending the stigma of women being divorcees; giving women the same right as men to pursue education, careers, etc.; laws against sexual harassment in the workplace; laws demanding equal pay for equal work, etc.

    Ingrid Newkirk, co-founder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) points out that “…children have a right not to be used in factories. That right had to be fought for in exactly the same way we are fighting for animal rights now.”

    Like animal activists today, Emma Goldman and the IWW free-speech campaigners were jailed for organizing workers, advocating contraception, and resisting World War I. Suffragists picketed the White House for the right to vote and, when jailed, went on hunger strikes. The rights and freedoms we take for granted today, including the abolition of (human) slavery, the emancipation of women, birth control, the sexual revolution, LGBT rights, etc. were fought for by previous generations of activists.

    • Vasu Murti:
      THE DIFFERENCE IS:
      Christians are horrible people when they act CONTRARY to Jesus’s example.
      When you commit atrocities in the name of Christ, you are violating Christianity.

      Moslems are horrible people when they FOLLOW Muhammad’s example.
      When you commit atrocities in the name of Islam, you are obeying Islam.
      The ISIS and Hamas, and all of the rest of the Islamic Terrorist organizations are following Mohammad’s teachings and the Koran to the letter.

      Most would agree that the definition of a good Christian is following the teachings and example of Jesus Christ, just as the definition of a good Muslim is following the teachings and example of Mohammed. The canard that Islamic apologists put forth is to compare a “Bad Christian” (Violent) with a “Bad Muslim” (Peaceful), “Bad” meaning they do not adhere to the teachings of their religion.

      “When people in other bona fide religions follow their doctrines they become better people — Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, and Jews. When Muslims follow their doctrine, they become jihadists.” — Clare Lopez

      • Maybe. You make a valid point, I’m Hindu, not Muslim, and while Hindus are famous for religious tolerance, I don’t know enough about Islam to respond to your accusations against Muslims.

        I can say this: Many Muslims, too, are alarmed at the resurgence of Islamic fundamentalism sweeping the Middle East. In an interview before his assassination, Anwar Sadat, President of Egypt, pointed out that the brutality of the Khomeini regime in Iran could not be called true “Islam” any more than the Crusades or the Inquisition could be called genuine “Christianity.” The taking of hostages—especially diplomatic ones—is clearly forbidden in Islamic tradition. “I do not break treaties, nor do I make prisoners of envoys,” Mohammed insisted. Many Muslims saw the taking of American hostages by Iran in 1979 as an embarrassment to Islam.

        Democrats don’t deny we’re at war, they just hesitate to call it “radical Islam” because the term indirectly demonizes all Muslims. It’s like referring to the Ku Klux Klan as “Christians” when they clearly do not speak for all of Christianity. Democrats take their cue from Republican George W. Bush who never used the term “radical Islam.”

        After 9-11, George W. Bush told the American people our quarrel is not with Islam but with a radical faction within Islam known as Al-Quaeda. Shortly after 9-11, George W. Bush visited a mosque: something Barack Obama was unable to do until late in his presidency, as Islamaphobic “birthers” were labeling him a “Muslim” even though Article VI, Section 3 of the Constitution clearly states: “No religious test shall be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”

        WASHINGTON (AP) — Taunted by Republicans to declare war on “radical Islamic terrorism,” Democrats are turning to an unlikely ally: George W. Bush.

        President Barack Obama, under pressure to be more aggressive on terrorism, regularly cites his predecessor’s refusal to demonize Muslims or play into the notion of a clash between Islam and the West. It’s a striking endorsement from a president whose political rise was predicated on opposition to the Iraq war and Bush’s hawkish approach in the Middle East.

        As Hillary Clinton put it, “George W. Bush was right.”

        Laying out her plan to fight domestic terrorism, Clinton reminded voters in Minneapolis of Bush’s visit to a Muslim center six days after the Sept. 11 attacks. She even quoted his words from that day about those who intimidate Muslim-Americans: “They represent the worst of humankind, and they should be ashamed of that kind of behavior.”

        Bush, of course, was not referring to the 2016 Republican presidential field. Clinton certainly was.

        Jeb Bush has also said the U.S. should follow his brother’s lead, arguing that “we can’t dissociate ourselves from peace-loving Muslims.”

        During the 2001 mosque visit, one of several occasions Bush denounced anti-Muslim bias, he stood alongside Muslim leaders and quoted the Quran about evil-doers being ultimately defeated. He insisted that intimidation against Muslims in America would not stand.

        “The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam,” Bush said.

        Donald Trump wants to ban ALL Muslims from coming to the United States. He’s not singling out the extremists, rather he’s castigating all Muslims. Even Bill O’Reilly was critical of Donald Trump in this regard, telling him, “If you say no Muslims can travel here from overseas, you’re hurting the United States’ position against ISIS,” O’Reilly told Trump in a wide-ranging interview. “We need the friendly Muslim nations. You can vet them, but you can’t insult the whole religion,” O’Reilly said.

        Even Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right National Front who once compared Muslims praying in the streets to the Nazi occupation, thinks Donald Trump has gone too far. Asked in a television interview about Trump’s proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States, Le Pen said the idea was too much. “Seriously, have you ever heard me say something like that?” asked Le Pen, who has been accused of encouraging Islamophobia in France. “I defend all the French people in France, regardless of their origin, regardless of their religion.”

        • I will not address the rest of your post but ISLAM is infamous for its dualism. Quoting you: “The taking of hostages—especially diplomatic ones—is clearly forbidden in Islamic tradition. “I do not break treaties, nor do I make prisoners of envoys,” Mohammed insisted. HE LIED!
          See: Treaty of Al-Hudaibiya
          In 628, Muhammad signed a ten-year treaty with the people of Mecca that allowed his people to enter the city and peacefully perform the pilgrimage. Less than two years later, he returned with an army and took the city by surprise.

          A ‘treaty” means nothing to them, they will “agree” to a treaty when they are weak and then break it when they think they are strong enough, or when they want to stall for time!

          A captured enemy of war could be killed, enslaved, ransomed for money or an exchange, freely released, or beaten. Muhammad even tortured a leading citizen of the city of Khyber in order to extract information about where the wealth of the city was hidden. Then killed him and raped his wife in her dead husbands blood!

  45. Let’s turn this around, suppose the class had required Jewish, Muslim, Hindi and atheist students pray the Lord’s Prayer; what would happen to the school, the teacher and any students who refused to say the prayer?

    • I know firsthand Christmas carols were taught and sung in elementary schools in the early ’70s. Aren’t the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance similarly an establishment of religion?

  46. If we want to stop this as the PARENTS OF OUR CHILDREN, WE GET TOGETHER & TELL EACH TEACHER TO THEIR FACE OF YOU TRY JUST ONE TIME TO TEACH MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD TERRORIST CRAP,CRIMINAL RELIGION TO MY CHILDREN YOU WILL NOT BE TEACHING THEM ANY LONGER!PERIOD! NO!NO!NO RELIGION IS TO BE TAUGHT TO ANYONE IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS! AGAINST THE CONSTITUTION & YOU WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR INFRINGING ON MY CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS! PERIOD!

  47. Here’s the best part…the only thing they’re accomplishing with this ‘forced indoctrination’ is causing those of us with an intense hatred for all things Islam to increase that hatred. I’m a live-and-let-live kind of guy, but the minute you try to teach me about ‘hokey religions’, I’m gonna start cleaning my blaster. I’d personally bet you taught that crap to my kid. No wonder Kylo Ren is so Effed Up.

  48. The elitists in our federal government, as well as our educational institutions, have either forgotten, or do not know, that Islam is a political system with a mandatory religious function included. This is no different from what the English were doing with mandating that citizens belong to the church of England. Of course, when history is no longer studied, we shouldn’t be surprised. If the Supreme court doesn’t accept this case, we are stuck with more Islamic grief.

  49. No one of any, or no religion, should have to participate in any (Christian, Jewish, Muslim, etc) other religions activities, or vocabulary.

  50. ‪Expose, Boycott, Sue, prosecute and bring to justice all these deep state treasonous NAZI commie liberal Muslim pedophilia demoncrats and RINOs post-haste,Patriots! Drain the rat infested swamp President Trump!‬

  51. I am a born again Christian so I hate sinful behavior yes we all are sinner but born again the minute we sin we know it and ask for forgiveness. I lament for nation . Yes Islam is by Koran is full of sin/hate the only we should hate Satan/sin. I long to meet my savior in the the clouds when the trumpet sound I pray and long for the rapture of those in Christ 🙏🏻. This nation has gone to the dogs.

  52. It is all a plan, first you take people into our Country supposed to be legalized immigrants, then they all move to one neighborhood and vote these nuts into Congress where they are welcomed by Congress then a few more are voted in and so on so on and before you know it all our heads are chopped off.
