Mom Throws A Fit When Her Daughter Learns About Islam In School


Recommended Posts

Christians are too busy fighting against science and evolution and they missed the Muslim lobby inserting Islam in history school textbooks. Whoops! Too funny. I think comparative religion should be taught in school just to point out how absurd all religions are. This does seem to be weighted in favor of Islam, though, which is odd because although it is a significant religion, Christianity is older, much more widespread, and has influenced history more.

 

I don't remember being taught any religion in public school. That is also a viable option.

A Tennessee mother has launched a crusade against the textbooks used in the local school district after she found out her daughter was learning about Islam as part of the 7th grade social studies curriculum.

Michelle Edmisten claims her daughter’s “personal religious beliefs were violated” with lessons about Islam, according to the Kingsport Times News. Her daughter opted out of those classes and was given zeroes for refusing the work.

Those are zeroes that we proudly took and we will not compromise,” Edmisten was quoted as saying.

Speaking at a school board meeting on Monday night, Edmisten demanded that the district remove the textbook.

It is time as parents, teachers and administrators we stand up and take back our families, our schools and our country,” Edmisten said, according to local CBS affiliate WJHL.

“I would like to see parents, Christians, veterans, anyone that’s anyone, stand up for this fight,” she told the TV station. “How can I, as a Christian, say that I have these values? And I want to instill these values in my daughter, but then say it’s okay, go ahead and do it.”

Edmisten was the only parent to speak about the issue.

The school board explained the process for removing a textbook and said any replacement would have to meet current state standards. According to the state board of education’s website, those standards include educating students about Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism and Hinduism in 6th grade, and Islam in 7th grade, “including Islam’s historical connections to Judaism and Christianity.”

The National Council for the Social Studies, a professional organization that helps support social studies teachers and programs, called the study of religions an “essential” part of the curriculum:

“Knowledge about religions is not only a characteristic of an educated person but is necessary for effective and engaged citizenship in a diverse nation and world. Religious literacy dispels stereotypes, promotes cross-cultural understanding and encourages respect for the rights of others to religious liberty.”

Tennessee is currently in the process of changing its standards. However, a draft of the proposed standards also includes instruction in world religions.

Ignorant, brainwashed, bigoted retards like that woman have always resisted getting any factual information that challenges their prejudices and their xenophobia. No surprise there. They are even more adamant that they should be the only ones who should be brainwashing (normal people prefer 'educating') their children about religion and other crackpot rightwingnut reality-denying obsessions, like evolution vs. creationism or the scientifically confirmed reality of human caused global warming.

 

Climate Change Denial Is Affecting Education

National Center for Science Education

Climate change denial is already threatening the integrity of science education in formal and informal education settings. In the public schools, such threats are primarily due to laws adopted or considered at the level of state government, policies adopted or considered at the level of the local school district, and actions adopted or considered at the level of the individual classroom, where teachers may either deny climate change themselves or encounter pressure from climate change deniers in the community. The following is a selection of recent (from 2007 to 2011) incidents, intended to be illustrative rather than comprehensive; NCSE is now routinely monitoring cases of climate change denial affecting education.

The single most important con "value":

 

Ignorance.

^^ Isabitch's favorite subject. The only one she passed.

It's hilarious to watch liberals standing up for Islam being taught in public school, especially since it's their lifestyle that Muslims would wipe out first.

Either teach about all religions or none of them.

That is exactly what they do teach, moron.

Standing up for freedom of religion and a freely taught comprehensive education about the world in our schools are both good American values that liberals proudly uphold.

 

Denigrating and vilifying ALL of the members of the second largest religion in the world - over 1.6 billion people - is rightly called prejudice and bigotry, which are anti-American fascist traits....which treasonous rightwingnuts like the GrovelingBastard champion.

The mainstream media and apologists for Islam never fail to shift focus from the brutality that Islam produces. Comparing Muslim terrorist attacks is a favorite tactic to deflect from the violent nature that stems from the Quran and Hadith, and first began with the Prophet Muhammad.

Although many Muslims attempt to convince us that these terror attacks have nothing to do with true Islam, history paints a different picture. In fact, the bloody canvas of Islam contains the brush strokes of worldwide genocide, responsible for the slaughter of at least 270 million non-Muslims, beginning with Muhammad’s infamous killing sprees.

I should have added that they should also be taught by someone with experience and extensive knowledge of the particular religion...basically, guest lecturers. It would be unfair for a Christian to teach a section on Islam or Wican...just like it would be unfair for a Rabbi to teach about Christianity. If the "teacher" is not part of the religion it is far too likely the presentation will be slanted.

 

That is why, in my opinion, leave them out of the required curriculum...maybe best to make it an extra-curricular, after school elective.

Old man South almost got an erection when he saw this thread.

If it was 15 years ago he would have a stiffy.

 

The simple truth of the matter is that 99 + % of Muslims in the world are peaceful law abiding citizens. Always pointing out that small minority is not fair to them nor makes you look good at all.

We're never going extinguish the terrorists around the world unless we have the help of those 99+ % that will be our eyes and ears to assist the CIA and such.

 

Trump's plan would create more terrorists. And would make the world a much less safer place than it is today.

I hear in even the most benign ( those peaceful ones ) Muslim communities; this takes place - - - - FGM - Child Brides - Honor Killings - Killing of Gays - Stoning of Rape Victims - Killing of Infidels - Slaughter of Dogs - Throwing Acid in Women's Faces.

99% peaceful - - - should be piece of cake for them to weed out the radicals. Couple of days at most.


FGM is enough reason to wipe out a cult that is thinly veiled as a religion. Why are Muslim men so terrified of a women having sexual pleasure?

If liberals were educated, they would be aware of this: Heres How Islams Historical 270 MILLION Death Toll ...Plays Out

If rightwingnuts like JustStupid were educated, it wouldn't do much good because they would still be severely retarded and still totally clueless....just a more educated but still bigoted kind of cluelessness.

They - mutilate - women's - genitals. They are fucking insane. Do you believe that is the act of anyone who is sane?


I expect a Liberal 101 reply on this.

No, you are not completely wrong. Here is the dilemma as I see it. Most adherents of Islam are peaceful, but due to the culture in which they were raised have been taught intolerance. How do we realistically deal with 1.6 billion followers of Islam? Do we integrate them or destabilize their governments and try to install pro-democratic governments? Short of a Final Solution (which never works, and is obscene) those are our only options. As to immigrants, the U.S. has - due to Bush- initiated chaos in the Middle East. We are almost obligated to alleviate some of the suffering we have caused.

Then there's this:

 

 

 

 

 

If we allow integration we must PRESSURE them to assimilate.
