(CAN) Christian Action Network, Files Appeal to Overturn Islamic Indoctrination Court Ruling

June 15,2018- Christian Action Network, and just when you thought President Trump's Administration of GOP would never lie to the American People, yea right, this is in their face.

On June 15, Christian Action Network (CAN) filed a “friend of the court” brief to overturn a federal court ruling upholding Islamic indoctrination programs in the public schools. CAN is based in Forest, VA.

The brief focuses on the legal battle between a father and daughter, Kevin and Caleigh Wood, and the Charles County Board of Education, a case that is now on appeal at the 4thCircuit Court of Appeals.

Martin Mawyer, president of CAN, said his organization is joining the Thomas More Law Center, lead counsel in the case, to get the court ruling overturned.

“This school clearly advanced Islam over Christianity, violating the neutrality principle they are supposed to abide by,” Mawyer said.

“Whatever their intentions were, forcing children to recite words that favor one religion over their own is both offensive and unconstitutional on its face.”

U.S. District Court Judge George J. Hazel ruled in March that 11th-grader Caleigh Wood of La Plata High School, MD, and her former-marine dad, could not sue the school district for violating their First Amendment rights.

The Wood family sought the federal lawsuit because of what they called compulsory assignments catered to force students to “profess” tenets of Islamic doctrine.

CAN’s 33-page legal filing, known as an “Amicus Curiae,” is highly critical of ten activities children were forced to complete during a World History course.

  1. Children can be required to learn the Islamic creed of faith: "There is no god but Allah and the Prophet Muhammad is the messenger of Allah."
  2. Children can be required to describe the Quran.
  3. Children can be told to write: "Most Muslim's faith is stronger than the average Christian."
  4. Children can be told to declare: "Islam, at heart, is a peaceful religion."
  5. Children can be told to write: "Muslims conquerors treat those they conquered with tolerance, kindness and respect."
  6. Children can be told: "All children are born without sin." (This is fundamentally opposed to Christianity)
  7. Children can be told: "All people can lead themselves to salvation." (This is fundamentally opposed to Christianity.)
  8. Children can be told to learn the Five Pillars of Islam.
  9. Children can be told to state the laws and morals that Muslims must follow.
  10. Children are told that Muslims and Christians both believe in "One God." (This is fundamentally incorrect. Christianity believes in the Holy Trinity)

“Answering questions on Muslim customs, laws, and morals, as well as describing the Qur’an, either requires the student to read and study the Qur’an or to regurgitate the religious teaching of the teacher,” the brief reads.

“A teacher offering students a single-line correct answer to these questions of faith is an unconstitutional attempt to give a religious opinion disguised as an academic fact.”

In his ruling, Judge Hazel ruled these exercises to be “purely academic.”

“If forcing children to recite the Islamic creed of faith is ‘purely academic,’” Mawyer said, “the court would be hard pressed to define what would become ‘purely religious.’”

“This is a clear violation of the Supreme Court ruling in the Edwards v. Aguillard case,” Mawyer stated.

In that 1987 case, the court ruled:

“Families entrust public schools with the education of their children, but condition their trust on the understanding that the classroom will not purposely be used to advance religious views that may conflict with the private beliefs of the student and his or her family. Students in such institutions are impressionable and their attendance is involuntary.”

“I remain hopeful and prayerful,” Mawyer said, “the appellate court will clearly see what Judge Hazel turned a blind eye to: That La Plata High School’s Islamic teaching program is pure religious indoctrination and is, therefore, unconstitutional.”

Nice find Tif

Individual parents should not be paying for these actions... they should be brought by the Federal Government or the State's... however, it is the fed and states that have colluded with CAIR to indoctrinate our children in the doctrines of Islam... as if it were a state religion.

(CAN) Christian Action Network, they sure have made waves and have won several cases.

The problem with lawsuits is that they only apply to that case... and if there is no underlying criminal law there is no real penalty for the bureaucrats who abuse their power and knowingly operate outside of the statutes and court rulings... I have yet to see any judge jail a public school administrator for violating the laws or previous court judgments... no contempt charges or jail sentences.

The judiciary is corrupt and it is very time consuming and expensive to take these cases to court as PRIVATE CITIZENS OR GROUPS... the government itself should do so.  However, it is the government that is forcing these Muslim dictates upon us and they are not willing to sue.

In the meantime CAIR continues to force their propaganda on our children and public schools continue to support them... while private citizens end up bankrupt trying to sue them everytime they pop up.

 You don't say...LMAO at the whole system...:)-

ALERT ALERT

ALERT --> Minnesota Elects First Muslim Congresswoman In US History!!!

Minnesota voters sent Somali immigrant Ilhan Omar of the DFL party to Congress on Tuesday night after she defeated Republican candidate Jennifer Zielinski by a 78-22% margin.

Omar and Michigan House candidate Rashida Tlaib (D) both became the first two Muslim-American women to serve in Congress after their election victories on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

Yesterday Ilhan Omar won her election in Minnesota, becoming the first Muslim woman elected to Congress.

Today, she had to appear before a judge for her hearing regarding ethics violations.

It’s been less than 24 hrs since she won and she’s already in court for her corruption.

2,159 people are talking about this

Omar, along with being the first Muslim women elected to Congress is also the first Somali-American member of Congress, a seat in Minnesota’s 5th Congressional district which was previously held by Keith Ellison, who was the first Muslim ever elected to US Congress. Minnesota’s 5th Congressional district has not elected a Republican to Congress since 1962. The district includes Minneapolis and its surrounding suburbs.

The Minnesota state congresswoman ran a progressive platform which included “Medicare for all,” criminal justice reform and abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Omar, a Somali refugee, came to the U.S. at 12 years old, which is why she often attacks President Trump‘s travel ban against a number of Muslim-majority countries which happen to be terror hotbeds.

In August, Investigative Journalist Laura Loomer confronted both Ilhan and Tlaib, who have both expressed hatred for Jewish people and who are campaigning with pro-HAMAS Linda Sarsour and CAIR, which has been designated as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates.

When Loomer confronted Tlaib at one of Ilhan’s campaign events, Tlaib assaulted Loomer, and a police report was filed.

Omar’s campaign and election, however, are still clouded in controversy. Omar has been accused of marrying her brother and committing immigration fraud.

The day after her victory, Omar appeared in court to face a judge about the campaign finance violations she has been accused of.

Ilhan Omar was also arrested in 2013 for trespassing.

This is Ilhan Omar.

She won an election last night & is now the first Somali woman elected to US Congress.

This is her mug shot.

Along w/ being a criminal, as you can see, she committed immigration fraud by marrying her brother so he could get a green card.

Good riddance.

Omar has also faced criticism for her ties to CAIR, campaigning with jihadi activist Linda Sarsour, Keith Ellison, who has been accused of domestic violence, and her public display of anti-Semitism, all of which has been either under-reported and ignored by the local Minnesota media.
