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?
