Marine Father FURIOUS To Learn His Child Had Islamic School Assignments…Then, He Made The School Answer To Him!
I’m thrilled that these parents filed a lawsuit over this. A Marine and his wife are taking a stand. La Plata High School tried to force their child to write out the Islamic Shahada… which is the first step to conversion into the Muslim faith. It reads: “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.” This is by no means the first school in America to pull this crap. It is why every parent out there should be paying very close attention to their children’s homework and what they are being taught in school. A great deal of the textbook production market is now owned by Islamists. They are also pushing for Islamic doctrine in our schools constantly.
From The Federalist Papers Project:
Two Maryland parents have filed a lawsuit against the local public school for pushing Islam on students at the expense of other religions.
The suit, filed on behalf of a Marine father and his wife, came after their daughter was forced to complete homework assignments that seemed to endorse Islam.
The Thomas More Law Center – representing the parents – are charging the district and school with violating the students’ constitutional rights, the Washington Free Beacon is reporting.
The lawsuit was filed against the Charles County Public schools and the principal and vice principal of La Plata High School.
John Kevin Wood – an eight-year veteran with the Marines – and his wife Melissa discovered their daughter’s World History homework amounted to Muslim propaganda. They were instructed to write out the Islamic creed – called the “Shahada.” The mantra – also said by Muslim radicals right before committing a terrorist act, reads: “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”
When recited by non-Muslims, it is considered to be the first step toward conversion to Islam.
Students at the Maryland school were also required to memorize and recite the “Five Pillars of Islam” and were subjected to critical teachings about Christianity. One incredible handout read: “Most Muslim’s faith is stronger than the average Christian.” The teachers in this school spent two or more weeks having students study Islam. They had them study Christianity and its history for one day. This father contacted the school when he found this out and they told him his daughter could not opt out of the assignments. If she did, she would get a failing grade. They opted out any way. Good for them. And now comes the law suit. I sure hope they prevail. This would be an important precedent to set in the courts and in schools. The complaint that was filed charges that the school discriminated against Wood’s daughter “by removing her from the academic environment of her World History class, relegating her to the student library, and issuing her failing grades on assignments because [she] refused to deny and insult her Christian beliefs.” Following Wood’s complaints, the school principal also banned him from entering school grounds. This is what is being forced on our schools and kids. It has to be stopped.
