KANSAS Lawmaker “appalled” that ‘The Five Pillars of Islam’ mural in an elementary school, which has now been taken down, was ever put up at all
‘The Five Pillars of Islam’ display was removed from a Wichita elementary school after a photo of it went viralon the internet, causing a nationwide backlash. In response to the controversy, school administrators have agreed to ‘temporarily’ take down the display. Still, they say that the photo of the bulletin board was taken out of context.
Watchdog A display outlining the five pillars of Islam has been removed by Wichita school officials after some outraged parents took issue with the visual following the first day of class at Minneha Core Knowledge magnet school last week. (FYI: Far Left Wing ‘Core Knowledge’ public schools are known for low-epectation mediocrity, socialist ideology, multiculturalist promotion of the equality of all cultures and religions, anti-American exceptionalism, redistribution of wealth, climate change hysteria, with a heavy emphasis on ‘racist’ policies of white Christians throughout history)
Susan Arensman, marketing and communications director for Wichita Public Schools, acknowledged that Minneha had created a visual display of the five pillars of the Islamic faith, but said it was part of a curriculum the magnet school has utilized for years. Students study Islam, as well as Christianity, Judaism, Hinduismand Buddhism in the historical and geographical context of understanding the development of civilizations.
“The bulletin board that originally caused the concern does represent the five pillars of Islam – in a historical context of their studies,” Arensman said. “There is also a painting of the Last Supper hanging in the school as part of the study of art and the Renaissance period.” (But I bet you’ll never see a nativity scene or a crucifix hanging anywhere on the wall of this school)
