GEORGIA: Parental outrage over public school’s ‘Islamic indoctrination’ of students in the classroom
At a public school in Walton County, Georgia, parents are shocked to learn that their children are being sent home with homework that is nothing short of blatant promotion of Islamic religious propaganda.
MW News Outrage is spreading across a Georgia county after their kids came home with what they thought was “ordinary” homework. However, once parents saw what it was about, they had their kids immediately stop, went right to the school board, and put up such a stink that the State Department of Education even got involved.
When parents send their children to school, they entrust administrators and teachers to educate their children with necessary information. Unfortunately, with the rise in Common Core (funded in large part by the terror-supporting nation of Qatar) – and the leftist leaning curriculum – parents are becoming more aware of the government abusing the system in what seems to be a systematic effort to brainwash their children with Islamic propaganda.
But that’s not the worst part. My daughter had to learn the Shahada and the Five Pillars of Islam, which is what you learn to convert. But they never once learned anything about the Ten Commandments or anything about God,” outraged parent Michelle King said. “What they are learning goes against my religion completely.”
As one would imagine, quite a few parents were upset after learning what their children were not only being taught in school, but being forced to study. Beyond being taught intimate details of Islam, one statement from an assignment that has ruffled a few feathers reads:
“Allah is the same God worshiped by Jews and Christians.”
“It seemed like half the truth to me, they didn’t talk about the extreme Islamics,” explained Steven Alsup, the father of a student who brought home the assignment. One could only understand his frustration as there is no way that “allah” is similar to the Christian or Jewish God.
Allah and his so-called “prophet” condoned things like war, murder, and rape, where the Christian and Jewish God teach love. There’s a very big difference, and for that reason alone, I can understand the frustration of the parents.
However, the State Department of Education has issued a statement saying:
“The standard for seventh grade given to educators is to ‘compare and contrast the prominent religions in the Middle East: Judaism, Islam, and Christianity.’ The teachers (sic) resource guide advises ‘This element is not an evaluation of any religion, nor is it a course in the belief system of any religion.’”
Sounds more like a cop-out to me than a justifiable reason. Either way, parents are hoping to put a kibosh on the matter and are meeting with school officials soon.
You know, with liberals always demanding a clear and concise separation between church and state, it really makes you wonder what they were thinking here. Perhaps there needs to be a few things taught on Islam with regards to history, such as Islam being responsible for 270 million deaths, but this assignment is beyond “too far.”
