Parents are outraged over a school curriculum that’s forcing their children to not only learn biased material that propagates the myth of peaceful Islam, but requiring students to repeat the Shahada, the Islamic oath of conversion and rededication.
Brandee Porterfield was more than perturbed when her daughter brought home a religious assignment from Spring Hill Middle School in Tennessee. The project required students to write “Allah is the only god; Mohammad is his prophet,” the same declaration that Muslims recite in prayer and use to convert unbelievers to Islam.
Porterfield explained that not only was the assignment against her daughter’s Christian faith, but that the school had completely cut the study of Christianity from the class, the Columbia Daily Heraldreports.
“I have a big problem with that,” Porterfield said. “From a historical point of view, that’s a lot of history these kids are missing. Also, for them to spend three weeks on Islam after having skipped Christianity, it seems to me they are making a choice about which religion to discuss.”
According to national statistics, over 70 percent of those surveyed identify as Christian, while less than 1 percent say they are Muslim.
“I have no problem with the teacher at all. It’s just that yellow foldable seems to be teaching our children religion in schools, and only that religion,” Porterfield said. “From a religion point of view, if the schools are going to be teaching religion in history, they need to teach them all equally.”
Still, not all the children are as susceptible to the religious propaganda being taught in their classroom. A photo surfaced of one of the students’ responses to having to write the Shahada. Above the declaration, the child wrote “!Lie!” and reiterated that the Shahada is “creed,” and not shared by their belief, according to EAG News.
“To me, a Christian child should not be made to write that,” said Joy Ellis, mother to one of the 7th grade students who was forced into the assignment. “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.’”
However, Maury County Public Schools middle school supervisor Dr. Jan Hanvey assured that declaring allegiance to the god of Islam is not religious, but somehow historical in nature.
Christ is the Lord, not a mad prophet whose teachings were probably changed by the scribe because Mojon o couldn't read nor write.
Home school your kids. Both work -- then boycott school until they fire the superintendent and principal.
These people are as bad as the school officials in this article AND IT IS ALL SACROLIGIOUSE THEY SHOULD ALL BE RUN OUT OF THE COUNTRY!!!!!
our generations have been conditioned to embrace that government is the ultimate authority and provider. Therefor the top elected position does become deity, not unlike some major religions.
sadly, it's nothing new - in fact it's the same as 300 years ago and it all adds up to support the conclusion that humanity doesn't evolve, it's technology does.
What a bunch of crap. No one should be forced to say that the muslim god is the only god and then leave the christian god out of the discussion. Praise Jesus
Where is the Freedom From Religion Foundation when you really need them? If that had been about the Christian Religion, the school would have been sued by them. Of course, we all know that the reason the FFRF is silent is because Muslims kill people and Christians don't normally.
There is one God and His name is God. Not Allah the murdering pedophile rapist conqueror.
this crap has to stop. Christians SPEAK UP! BE NOT ASHAMED.
The fight I had in Orlando involved middle school children making prayer rugs. They claimed it was art. Pearson Education has a purpose, that is indoctrinating the instructors ! All the pages on Christianity were missing from the text books, how convenient. The creep in the White House says this will be a Muslim country by 2016. We have idiots teaching our students and parents that do little about it. So few cannot be doing all of the heavy lifting ! After watching Watters world last night, it looks to me like this country is well on its way into full fledged socialism ! More than half the population (1/7 is illegal) have no skin in the game since welfare now can be traded for booze and drugs !
It is history in Iran ! All parents should be storming those schools that force children to do this. They did it in Orlando Florida too, I had a huge fight with them. But I pay taxes in both Florida and NJ so I could fight with them. We wanted to move to Tennessee but have been seeing a lot of stuff going on in that state ! Not going to a state that is even worse than NJ !
