Georgia Schools are Teaching Kids “Allah is the Same God Worshipped by Jews and Christians”
There’s nothing necessarily wrong with children learning about Islam. But learning about Islam to the exclusion of Christianity, and that Allah is the same God worshipped by Jews and Christians, has a lot of parents angry.
Several Walton County parents say their children are being forced to learn about Islam, and want the option to exclude their children from these lessons.
The teaching of Islam has banded together a group of upset parents.
“My daughter had to learn the Shiad, 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,” said parent Michelle King.
Parent Steven Alsup says what caught his attention was a statement on his child’s homework: “Allah is the same God worshipped by Jews and Christians.”
Alsup calls the statement a half-truth, and wants the lesson to include Islamists.
Allah is most definitely not the same God worshipped by Jews and Christians. And considering the violence and hatred towards Jews that many Muslims perpetrate, it’s especially insulting to say so.
