This State Takes Steps to Ban Islam in Schools

Flag_of_the_Islamic_Courts_Union_crossed_swords.svgLiberals have a long track record of keeping religion out of public schools.

Yet, recently, there’s been a push to teach kids all about Islam in schools.

Well, not so fast.

One state is taking a stand to keep Islam out of its schools:

A Tennessee state legislator has proposed a state law that would prevent public schools from teaching anything about religious principles until students reach the 10th grade.

The bill from Rep. Sheila Butt of Columbia (about 45 miles south of Nashville) comes in response to a grassroots campaign across Tennessee by parents — primarily evangelical parents — against what they perceive as an inappropriate focus on Islam in history and social studies courses in middle schools.

Doesn’t it make sense if liberals want to remove God from public schools that teaching about Islam should be banned?

At what age should public schools teach about religions from a historical perspective without the danger of indoctrinating kids in any one belief?

        Call it whatever you want but the libtard left will tie our school districts in so many lawsuits defending Islam that you’ll find yourself having bake sales and fundraisers just to keep them afloat. This is NOT a game to them, they want s complete takeover of our country.

          No God-knowing, God-fearing, Christian should ever have their children in a government run school system, period.

You’d use your God-given faith to have God meet your needs to educate your most-valuable children in private schools.. Live and learn.

          Then we need to file suits that keep THEM spending THEIR MONEY to defend UN Constitutional actions. AND IF the ACLU REFUSES TO TAKE THE CASE it constitutes reason to have it disbanded and it’s members disbarred.

      • Shane

        No, Islam is the world’s worst religion and also the world’s worst political system. Islam does not belong in the West as it conflicts with our Western values and the US constitution.

        • Rodney Steward

          Totally agree!

        • used_to_be_a_liberal

          Shane, it is not a religion. It is, and always has been a political agenda hidden under the guise of a so-called religion. It is a cult, it fits every definition of a cult. It is literally beaten into them from the time that a child learns to talk. Mohamed was no prophet, he was a military strategist, and possibly the world’s greatest con artist. He was more ruthless then Genghis Khan, and Attila the Hun. He first conquered then established his empire, then created Islam in order to control all that he had conquered. We are given the lie that he went for a walk, entered a cave, had a miraculous vision, then wrote the Koran. What a load of bull manure that is. The reality is that he and his administrators wrote the Koran. They incorporated parts of the then known Bible, and many Hebrew writings. Then to put the icing on the cake, he and they added in their own perversions to justify their actions. The Koran is no Holy Book. If any thing it is an instruction book on subjugation, conquest, how to maintain power and control, with the intent of a world wide caliph, ruled by a Theocracy
          I could go on, but I don’t think that it is necessary. Except to say that Islam is not only a threat to the U S, but to every other non Islamic country, location, person on the planet. This monstrosity doesn’t belong anywhere.

          • Rosech Levy

            It has always been a cult created by adoring Mohammed and copying his evil ways! It has not changed in 1400 years, has too much inbred children who are then brainwashed using what little normal brains they might have, their goddess is the moon goddess, and they are fighting still over who should have taken over after Mohammed died. So Shi’its and Sunnis and both sides are murderers amongst themselves and other muslims, and you and me! Gas them, nuke them, whatever but erase them all from the face of the planet because if not, what has happened in France today, and has happened in England, and is starting up in Germany, means more murders here by the muslim sleepers of Obama!

      • yael

        Actually it’s a political ideology, masquerading as a “religion”.

    • Shane

      I don’t mind them teaching princples of the main world’s religions, but the problem is that most schools teach liberal propaganda about Islam saying that Islam is “a religion of peace,” when that is not the case. Schools also lie about the word “jihad” saying that it means inner struggle; that is true but jihad also means holy war and in the Koran there are many passages in which Muhammad is using the word “jihad” to mean holy war against the infidels.

      In conclusion, I would rather that our public schools teach nothing about Islam rather than to teach false propaganda about it.

        The problem is if you give them an inch they’ll take the whole county!

      And I agree. These are called public schools but they are government schools. No religion in government schools.

      • Rodney Steward

        Our school is a city school, still have prayer!

        • josephaettore

          I don’t know what a city school is. Who controls it? I have never heard of a city school. Enlighten me.

          • Rodney Steward

            It was built by the city, and don’t need federal funding! Years ago most schools were city, or county schools. The Gov. wasn’t involved in schools much at all. When the Gov. get involved, they own U and U do as you’re told. This is how the dumbing down got started with common core, the Gov., but of course under this JV squad that wants to destroy everything moral, or American!

          • Daniel from TN

            As a former teacher I can state that the deliberate dumbing down of students began looooooooooooooonnnng before Common Core. Common Core just publicly admitted that the dumbing down was present AND deliberate.

          • Rodney Steward

            That I do believe, because I’ve never seen so many stupid people in my life! And just think what this country is going to be like with these so called millennials!

            can you tell us why? Its one thing to have a choice, take a class about Islam or don’t, but are they being forced to take these courses. I think it is worse than dumbing down. These students are downright mean.

            sorry too late, my kid finished his masters in 1989. But thanks for the advice.

      • Dynamicdave

        Schools are state funded, not federal funded. Where I live (Nevada) the school system is one of the worst school systems in the country. State funding is horrible and they are trying to force THEIR idea of sex education on even elementary school children. The public was outraged so the schools have backed off somewhat, but are still going to teach sex education in high schools. Personally, I see no place for that. It should be up to the parents to teach their children the do’s and don’ts of sex. IF there is classes taught, it should be a class that the student can elect to either sign up for or not to sign up for.

        • Done for

          I didn’t see his post say “Federal Gov” it said Gov schools. Understand what you read. State is a gov for the state. Open mouth insert foot…

        • Rosech Levy

          Sorry, but I taught in public schools and they depend heavily on funds from our taxes via the feds! States use that money for the school systems but it is from the feds since the 1960’s.

      • Luke Lugnore

        we have a school in texas that has a special room for muslims to pray during the school day.Lets not for get that some far left idiot pushed the have prayer taken out of schools.That includes Islam trash

    • Dynamicdave

      Incorrect. Schools were teaching kids the Pledge of Allegiance in my day. We had morning flag day before the start of school. We would ALL have our hand over our hearts and recite it in front of the school flag pole. LIBERALS are what’s changing this. So your stating that there is not supposed to be any religious teachings of any kind is a rule created by LIBERALS, and was NOT the norm.

      • Rodney Steward

        I can remember when congress would have prayer before they started their day, deciding on bills! How we miss those days, no dysfunctional generations to mess up everything, BUT we have these well placed socialist teachers now!

      • paulrod

        Whoa, friend, the Pledge of Allegiance isn’t a religious exercise. In fact, there is already a court decision that the phrase, “under God”, DOES NOT violate the First Amendments “separation clause”. (which was manufactured out of a personal letter, not the Constitution. You know, sort of like Roe v. Wade is based upon a non-existent “right to privacy”, which also isn’t in the Constitution.). It is merely a recognition and promise of loyalty to the country. Period!

        • Dynamicdave

          It is still a religious exercise. Anytime you “pledge allegiance to one nation, under GOD,” what have you just done? You swore your loyalty to GOD. Not Allah, not Mohammed. No, to GOD and COUNTRY. Word it how you wish, fact is, youagrred to those terms. Liberals are trying to strip away ANYTHING what has to do with God and that doesn’t support atheists and gays. I will remember why I served and fought. GOD and COUNTRY, not Sodom and Gomorrah. If you wish to stand still and not protest/fight the atrocities that are being committed upon the Christians, then you in turn, become a liberal and part of the problem, not the solution. Time to pick a side, my friend. I will not allow liberals to twist everything that this country was made great by and turn it into a disgusting, diseased, warped world. De oppresso liber.

        • Rosech Levy

          Some people cannot tell the difference between honoring America and religion. I attended both public and Catholic schools and every day the pledge of allegiance because we are Americans and proud of it and wanted to show that we honor our country. Obviously this is not obvious to many and we see it at games, etc., which to me means they should pack up and leave this country as we bring it back to where it used to be. Trump and Cruz 2016

      • kmdilli

        Teaching OUR Pledge to the people of OUR OWN COUNTRY is a “bad” thing? Is that what you’re saying?
        I personally believe that any person from any country that chooses to come here to AMERICA needs to learn and stand by OUR pledge.
        If they choose that this isn’t something they want to be a part of, then they don’t belong HERE. They can GO HOME.
        Also, if I misunderstood your post I apologize.

  • RichFromShowMe

    The only way to keep Muslims, NAACP, ACLU, Radical Democrats and other un-American groups out of court is to ban the teaching of ALL Religious Principles . . . otherwise the aforementioned groups will have so many lawsuits files that they will be un-countable.

    This is where America has finally gotten to . . . . the tail wags the dog.

      All the groups U mentioned need to be done away with and put our schools back on the MORAL standard!

      Which 3Rs are you talking about? The 3Rs used to be Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic. Today they have become Racism, Revisionism, and Ritalin

        I’m talking about the old school 3 R’S

  • MegaMouseGW

    Islam is not a religion. It is a political way of thinking. It has no business being taught in schools at all. If a college want to teach it as part of a political class then ok. But keep it out of our grade schools.

  • Austinniceguy

    If you want your kids learning religion in school you send them to private schools of your choice. If you want to send your kids to public school they shouldn’t be learning ANYTHING religious. Not even in high school.

    • Rodney Steward

      Another he$$ bound atheist! People like U will be our down fall!

      • Austinniceguy

        No, you blathering IDIOT. If you want public schools to teach Christianity then they have to equally teach islam, judaism, and any other religion that attending students’ families practice. I guess you just don’t get it. Your religion IS NOT the only one that would be taught. By the time your kids are through learning 10 different religions there will be no time to learn the basics they were sent there to learn. You may not like it but that’s the way it works now.

        • Rodney Steward

          When I was in school there was only one religion, didn’t have all this other that people worshiped, but we did learn enough about them to know what they were. What school of stupids did U go to! My religion is the only one that matters in this country!!

          • Austinniceguy

            Don’t you ever tire of posting moronic statements? If you were in school when there was only one religion that would have been Hinduism and that would have been over 5,000 years ago. Clearly I went to a school that was far more recent than yours. Glad to know that you consider Hinduism the ONLY religion that matters in this country.

          • Dynamicdave

            I have to agree to disagree. I went to school in the 60’s and 70’s. It was all about reading and writing and arithmetic. In Elementary and Jr. High School, we stood in front of the flagpole and recited The Pledge of Allegiance. I guess I have to continue repeating myself; ONE nation, under GOD! Not Allah, not Mohammed, not ANYTHING ELSE! When I served, I fought for GOD and country. Not Allah, not Mohammed, not ANYTHING ELSE! Liberals really began pushing their agenda in the 90’s and now use the Internet and media to spread their ideals. I refuse to compromise MY God to make room for other religions. That is not what makes a Christian, a soldier of God.

          • Austinniceguy

            First of all, thank you for your service. Secondly, I understand your points but, the world will never again work the way it did when you and I were growing up. We also stood before the American flag and said the pledge of allegiance. I stand FIRMLY against many of the things that are wrong with this society we’ve allowed to be created. I protested many things over the years, including Obummer being voted into office because I saw him stripping us of our rights and freedoms. As they say, “you can’t unring the bell”. So, here we are with the mess of our own creation. How do you think I felt when I read that the University of Chicago removed the pews from their 88 year old chapel just to accommodate muslim prayer? With momentum like that it won’t be long before elementary schools will have to accommodate for those little ragheads to pray. You can disagree with me ALL you want but, if keeping religion relegated to church for EVERYONE and not exposing my kids to all their crap, then I’m all for the separation. The last thing I want is for my kids to have to spend an hour a day learning about THEIR religion instead of something useful.

          • Rodney Steward

            It was Christianity dumb ass, and it covered different cultures and countries! And I was talking about when I was in school, not 5,000 years ago, that was what we learned in history! Do U get the picture now moron or do I need to draw a picture of it and send it to U!!

          • Austinniceguy

            And yet another moronic post. In your original MORONIC post you stated that; “When I was in school there was only one religion”. There have always been more than ONE religion in the United States. If you meant they only TAUGHT one religion then your stupid ass, brain dead self should have written that! Sadly your “education” system failed you miserably. Before posting anything else, do some research so you can cover up how woefully stupid you really are. Your parents must be so disappointed.

          • Rodney Steward

            U have to consider when I was in school F-BOY, there wasn’t all these mixed breeds. I’m from the South BOY, and still have morals and Christianity. This country wasn’t infested with all the trash that’s here now, that we’re gonna have to clean up. Maybe I didn’t lay it out just right, but U got the big picture I guess, you’re probably a D’N millennial, and U come across as a person that’s had as many accomplishments as a dead horse. Like I said BOY, next time I’ll draw it for U! 🙂

    • Dan

      I agree with you 100%. I don’t know why that Rodney guy is saying that.
      Prayer was removed from schools years ago.. To not offend anyone.. That should have been the end of any religion in public schools

          • Dynamicdave

            That has been the plan from liberals for the past 20 years. To little by little, strip our rights, hoping that we don’t notice the change in time to stop it, when it becomes too great to overcome. America is turning into another Sodom and Gomorrah. Hell, already has turned into, I should say. Atheists, gays, drugs, decadence, decay. Even God had his soldiers on Earth. I will fight to the bitter end.

        • Dan

          If America allows you to pray to any god you want to, and people can’t agree on what’s right, then ALL should be taken out of public schools.. If I need to sacrifice my Christian beliefs in school in order to keep my child from learning Islam, then so be it…
          I don’t cram my beliefs down anyone’s throat, and don’t (and won’t) let anyone cram theirs down mine

          • Dynamicdave

            I agree in part. Problem is, they ARE trying to cram it down our throats. However, you said you would sacrifice your Christian beliefs in order to keep your child from learning Islam has me a little confused? How did you mean, “sacrifice?” I will bow down to no other God. By letting them strip ALL religion to be banned, atheists then win. We are taught to bow to no other religions or ideals. To worship only ONE God. To fight for our convictions, not give in to others. THAT is what makes us true Christians. I see kind of what you’re saying, I just think that you might consider what you’re bowing/submitting to in the name of “compromise?” De oppresso liber.

          • Dan

            Sacrifice, meaning giving up prayer in a public school. I only have a daughter in school now, but would NEVER, EVER, let her be taught Islam..
            If I have to sacrifice prayer of any kind out of a public school, in order to keep out some brainwashing ideology about killing non-believers, then I’ll except it.

      • Dynamicdave

        Problem is, Dan, it never should have been removed. People forget what this country was founded on and what I grew up in? God was in almost everybody’s lives, but liberals; this newer, younger, pacifist (to the point of ignorance) generation have twisted, turned, destroyed, forgotten and screwed up everything that ever made this country great. By their whining use of the Internet and media (who also are filled with Liberals), they have pushed their crap out as if we ALL agree with their pathetic point of view? AND, if we DON’T agree with it, they then push to make it law. Take away my GOD given rights and they will see that when PUSH comes to SHOVE, I am going to protect my rights fully. De oppresso liber.

    • Dynamicdave

      The Pledge of Allegiance. One nation, under God. Liberals are stripping away the fundamentals of what made America strong. You said their shouldn’t be ANY religion taught? Problem is, is that they QUIT teaching anything of God and are PUSHING Islam and that’s where the problem lies. Liberals are cramming THEIR beliefs and ideologies upon EVERYONE. Fortunately, some of us refuse to put up with their tactics and are not afraid to tell them to go pound sand up their @sses. De oppresso liber. Schools were taught about the Constitution, the principles of io ur once, great country. Those principles included GOD. But Islam is being pushed and God is being swept under the table.

        As I posted, there should be NO religion taught in PUBLIC schools. This is one of the issues I hope they take up while campaigning because neither Hitlery nor Burnout Sanders will be able to separate themselves from it. I sit in on my 3 nephews classes on a very regular basis and have no problem yanking their teachers out to the hallway if I see something I don’t approve of coming from them. I thin k you’d be surprised how Anti I am about those people and their beliefs. I am Christian and have strong beliefs and faith and I trust WE are going to turn up in sufficient numbers to get this country back on track. Here are more reasons why Hitlery can’t be president. Feel free to let me know what you think. Have a great day!!!

        • Dynamicdave

          I still would have to disagree in regards to no religion be taught, or at least upheld. As I said earlier, “One nation, under GOD!” These are the fundamentals that our country was built on and liberals are trying to take that away. The minority now rules the majority and I will not bow to it and I feel sorry for anybody who ever tries to make me bow to it. When the masses came to the USA, it was under our rules, not theirs. Liberals and their “touchy-feely” ideas is destroying vs the fabric of what made this country great. Taking religion out of the military? Allowing atheiststo strip religion from the military? Allowing gays in the military? When I served, it was GOD and COUNTRY. Now, it’s become a joke. I don’t know about others, but when I went to war, I felt a comfort knowing that if I were to die, I had a better place to go to. I would never serve in this current military with their un-American views and ideas. I certainly would never serve under our current CIC. But, as for Islamschools teachings in the schools? Only in your High Schools and only as history lessons, not a religious practice. I will always recommend homeschooling over regular schooling. As for Hillary, I watched that documentary on her before. Really didn’t need to. I would never vote for that man hating hag anyways. De oppresso liber.

  • papa doug

    Islam should be kept out of schools but why do you insist on calling them a religion? That only plays into their hands. Islam IS NOT a religion it’s a political ideology, an evil ideology that condones incest, rape, murder and pedophilia and needs to be eradicated.

    • Rodney Steward

      BINGO!!

    • Daniel from TN

      Islam is a political/military organization, NOT a religion. It did not consider itself a religion until the mid-1800s, and did so then only because it saw financial advantages to being classified a religion.
      Mosques are the equivalent of chapels. Calling Islam a religion is the same as calling the U.S. Army (or other branch of the military) a religion because it has chapels where religious services occasionally occur.

  • Dean

    Religion should be taught by the parents not the school. Especially since the text books are written with a built-in bias decided by the publisher. Any school funded by state or federal funds that lists any beliefs of any religion is trying to indoctrinate the students. Religion is not a popularity contest that makes all religion irrelevant, it is a deeply personal thing not open to nor subject to the whims of a government sponsored text book.

  • Dan

    The only thing about Islam that NEEDS to be taught in school, is parts of the Quran that say “go out and KILL infidels”..
    No NORMAL individual will agree with this BS, but need to know what kind of crazy bastards we have on this earth.. And any of them that want to kill and live this way of life should be shipped to the White House or prison… In that order

        OH yeah, your right. There’s actually two types of lies that they promote. Taqlyya was one, I forgot the other.. But if they teach you to go out and kill, then lying, stealing and who knows what else is minor..

    If prayer is not allowed in schools by Christians then Islam should not be taught as part of a curriculum. If it’s so interesting to a student offer it offer as an extra class in the Junior or Senior year exploring all religions not just Islam but do not make it mandatory for anyone. I believe it will be taught with a liberal bent saying Islam stands for peace blah, blah, blah. I do not agree.

    • Rodney Steward

      I agree with most of your comment, but if a person wants to learn about a cult, let them go to the sand lands and learn first hand! If they’re sent home headless they didn’t pass the test!

      It depends on the definition of peace. In the dictionary, many words have more than meaning. Sometimes the meanings are similar, but sometimes the definitions are as different as night and day.
      To most of the world, the word peace means “an absence of conflict, or an absence of fighting, or an absence of war.”
      To Islam the word peace means “Islam rules, regardless of how that rule is established.” This is how Islam justifies calling itself a “religion of peace.”

    Islam is an ideology, much like communism only a thousand times worse. There is no love or forgiveness or compassion in Islam, only murder, rape and punishment. In Islam, women and dogs are 3 5ths the worth of men. Babies are regularly raped from a few months of age on and taken as wives at early ages, even three years and younger. Both young girls and young boys are regularly raped at mens’ discretion. How anyone can subscribe to this is amazing, even after being indoctrinated from birth on,-how they cannot see the truth after they reach adulthood. All Islam should be banned from the United States.

    Don’t expect principled consistency from the frothy mouthed, totalitarian “…some animals are more equal…” Hard Leftists and DWLs that run Amurkian pubbik skooz.

  • paulrod

    How dare those Tennesseans (didn’t they used to call them “Volunteers? Yeah, come to think of it..) Anyway, how dare they demand that all oxen be gored equally under the law the Leftists pushed so hard? Next thing you know, them Tennesseans will reject the “simple, common-sense suggestion” that pulled pork barbecue, and bacon, and all like that there, be banned from school lunches, and office cafeterias…..Where will it all end???

  • joebabe

    Ok, no Ten Commandments or bible study taught in schools, no Koranic studies either…….Period! ………..Unless they admit it is not a religion and just a part of ancient world history………Coexist ?…I don’t think so!

  • Robert Thompson

    If you believe that Islam is a “religion” as opposed to a political ideology, then banning it from schools make sense. If you understand that Islam and it’s sharia law is bent on enslaving this country, then exposing it for what it is, is something else.

  • RC

    FANTASTIC! It’s about time someone had the fortitude to stand up to our anti-American administration. As one who attended school many years ago, we did one thing that’s sadly neglected now. We recited the pledge of allegiance every morning at the start of class. Religion was not taught. On the contrary, the teachers TAUGHT and did not try to recruit us into their way of thinking. That was a job left up to our parents. I wasn’t a good student but I learned one very important thing. To love my country and what it stood for. That’s obviously something those now running our government don’t care about now, no matter which side of the isle they’re on.

  • Edith

    Islam being a cult should not be discussed in schools unless the conversation pertains to Charles Mason, Jim Jones – The People Temple or David Koresh – The Branch Davidians.

  • ABBAsFernando

    VILE LIBERAL [Progressive] SCUM are EVIL. Explains their Anti Christian behavior while embracing EVIL ideologies.

  • Frederic Charles Hilnbrand

    I do NOT think that the school system should teach about any religion!! If the children or students want to learn about it then the PARENTS should or take it in college.

  • Doc

    Hey Texas! Get on the ball and implement something like this. Either teach ALL religions or none.

  • The Fox

    Islam undermine’s everything about this country and should be banned in every state in the union, it is for the murderer’s to do their thing, rape, molest children and everything the devil is for and God is against, it needs to be sent back to the sand dunes and 7th century and should have no place in the world today.

  • R. T.

    It’s been years for Christianity & Judaism it’s about time for Islam , ( teaches hate & killing ) no compassion .

  • albany le

    In my opinion every state, county, city, town or rural community must take steps to protect our children from learning anything about islim. Islim is not a religion, rather it’s a cult of death and insanity

  • sadnana

    If they’re going to teach kids about Islam let them teach the whole truth. For example, tell them (or better yet show them the videos) that Islamists torture, crucify, and behead children just like them. Let them hear the first hand stories of women and children who were sold into slavery and what despicable things were done to them. Don’t allow schools to sugarcoat the “religion of peace”.

  • 77099

    what is happening that suddenly school personnel have become advocates of things that the public considers bad or at least not good. The good guy at Mizz was forced to resign, where are those parents? I promise if one were my child and involved in this rabble rousing I would be there dragging them out by the seat of their pants.

  • Patrick

    the Great State of Tennessee Hot Dam !!! God Bless You ,and God Bless America

    • Luke Lugnore

      Every State should ban Islam period

  • l.bell

    If you want to learn about religion go to church or temple or kneel in the dirt with the pig Muslims but religion is not for public schools to teach .hell they can hardly teach the fundamental courses like reading writing and arithmetic so how can they possibly teach religion competently?

    Good for Tennessee!!!

  • Eric Carter

    Bravo, bravo, if we can not teach AMERICA religion in school, why should we teach religion of HATE? We did NOT go to their country! They CAME here! Send them home if they are NOT going to follow OUR CONSTITUTION.

  • larry harvey

    Knowing that other religions exist and learning something about them is part of education. This is to be distinguished from religion being forced on students as the ultimate word. Liberals are in favor of the former but condemn the latter.

  • myfordtruck

    If they teach Islam then they should teach about God and the religions based on Him

    • cutterguy

      Maybe the schools that want to teach islam crap should pass out the Bible and the koran in high school( no sooner) and let the students compare them.

  • CMSgt, USAF, Retired

    Outlawing prayer and pledging allegiance to this country started us down this path. What is considered to be the minority population are now determining what can and cannot be taught. If they don’t like something, just start a protest. if a protest does not generate the desired action sue in court. The liberal judges that now populate our courts are almost guaranteed to rule in the favor of the minorities. People, we had better wake up and take action to correct the situation we now find this country in. I just hope it is not too late.

  • John & Eleanor McNaugher

    Nothing contrary to the Constitution should ever be taught in schools – this certainly would include Islam – who want to destroy every individual in the U.S. who will not bow to them!!!!!

    • cutterguy

      although potus has bowed to them (literally) many times.

  • Patrick

    HIGH FIVE Tennessee, all states need to JOIN you, if my kid can’t read his bible in study hall, they shouldn’t be teaching any religion in any class room enless it has to do with history!!!!!

  • jdbixii

    People need to insist on the equality of enforcement with regard to the liberal interpretation of the “separation of religion and state.” What is banned for one must be banned for all. This is certainly a violation of the “free exercise thereof” portion of the amendment which also prohibits the Congress from creating an official, state church. But where there is any attempt to introduce the teachings of Islam in public institutions, it must be resisted with every possible, legal means. Muslims can not expect that what the beliefs of their religion has caused over the past 1300 years, and particularly at present in world history, has anything to recommend it to non-Muslims.

  • John & Eleanor McNaugher

    This is one sick man, and his followers also – can not imagine how they can think the way they do!!!!!

  • Michael Beard

    We all know for sure that they’er not teaching the TRUTH about islam or muslims! Mohamed couldn’t read nor write, but satan has powers too. Paul warned us that satan can change himself into an angel of light to deceive, that there was a new gospel coming down the pike, “don’t follow it”, and one other clue (scripture warning) I can’t recall at this time. Liberals, ( who don’t know the real God) so stupid, will be the first to die!!!! Jihadist have not hi-jacked a religion, This is planned out quite well by Lucifer cause he knows he can get away with it and be a god, for a time. he knows he has a short time left!

  • NCnative

    I do completely agree with this, and have considered it to have been long past time that such is mandated across the country. It is not because of any religious views over any other religious views, but that Islam is not, nor has it ever been, a religion. It is a form of government. A government, complete with mandated laws and punishments, which have and required total compliance to it above all other laws and governments. This alone makes following the tenets of Islam to be tanamount to treason as under Islam, all other laws are forbidden, all other allegiances to other governments are forbidden, and punishable by death. This alone shows the proof that it is not a religion, but a government under the control of the religious elite, and swearing allegiances to it is treason. Therefore, under the laws of this nation, anyone openly mandating or requiring any adherence to Islam, whether in school, or a mosque, is advocating treason and should be criminalized under the full force of the law.

  • Howleyesque

    Even THEN it SHOULD NOT BE TAUGHT! Let the damned leftists CHOKE on their own manure!
