If the pc police were an actual business, they’d be pulling down millions like Bernie Madoff.
The radical Left has infected public education like we’ve never seen before, and because of it, students in Tennessee are now being taught that ‘Allah is the only God.’
I wish I could say “Bazinga!” right about now.
From Truth Revolt:
Parents at a middle school in Spring Hill, Tennessee, just outside of Nashville, are upset that their children have spent three weeks studying Islam and were assigned to write the Shahada profession of the Islamic faith: “Allah is the only god.” Making the situation worse, parents said the teacher skipped over the section on Christianity.
Though the parents understand that a thorough study of history will undoubtedly cover religions from all over the world, they don’t understand why so much time is being spent on this one. Plus, the class is delving into learning the specifics of the Five Pillars of Islam and thus causing parents to wonder if that constitutes teaching religion in schools.
“From a religion point of view, if the schools are going to be teaching religion in history, they need to teach them all equally,” parent Brandee Porterfield told The Columbia Daily Herald. “For them to spend three weeks on Islam after having skipped Christianity, it seems to be that they are making a choice about which religion to discuss.”
Another parent, Joy Ellis, said she was aware her child was studying Islam but as far as having to write the Shahada, she said, “To me, a Christian child should not be made to write that.”
“I honestly don’t want my child learning about Islam at all, but if they’ve got to learn about it, I would like for them to learn about the historical aspects of it and definitely nothing about the religion. I don’t want her writing ‘Allah is the only god,’” Ellis added.
But according to school officials, the class is just following Tennessee state standards adopted by Gov. Bill Haslem. Though he signed a bill against Common Core in May, the new TN Core standards are said to be very similar to the controversial curriculum.
Learning about all religions is great and all, but we are a nation founded on Judeo-Christian principles. Don’t just skip over an entire section on Christianity when America is 70-plus percent Christian!
This is merely a stunt by the district to discredit Christ in order to be more “sensitive” to liberal elitists, and it’s sickening.
Shouldn’t these kids be learning about radical Islam? You know, about the men and women overseas who behead gays and crucify all non-Christians?
This isn’t about being diverse and expanding the minds of kids as much as it’s an attempt to indoctrinate future generations into believing that the United States is evil because of her past.
