Schools abusing their powers? Teachers forcing theirs views onto others? What else is new?
The people are outraged because they’re not used to such things as that. Sharia Law will be even harder for people with liberal traditions to adjust to — it takes servile people to adapt to that.
An almost identical thing happened in the city where I live. It happened a week before school was out so it couldn’t be fought.
The children were forced to skip gym class to participate in an educaaaational presentation about Islam led by none other than CAIR. Not only that, they were taught that there is one true God whose name is Allah. They were taught how to pray five times a day, practice fasting during Ramadan and traditional attire for women.
If I had children in that school, I’d be furious… oh wait I don’t have children but I’m still furious.
Hmmm…I don’t see anything wrong with this. It is left at schools’ discretion to cancel classes. I see absolutely nothing wrong with students being taught new things.
Now, punishing them for refusing to kneel, that is despicable. But then again, I believe in freedom…[/quote]
If a priest taught Catholic faith in the US in a non-Catholic school, heads would roll. Remember that Under God was taken out of the pledge? What if Christianity was taught is Saudi Arabia?
They were taught that there is one true God whose name is Allah.
I didn’t mention that this all happened in a Quaker town.
