Two parents filed a lawsuit against a Maryland public school for pushing Islam on their children at the expense of other religions.
The Marine father and his wife filed the suit after their daughter was forced to complete homework assignments that endorsed Islam.
The Thomas More Law Center is representing the parents.
They are charging the district and the school with violating the students’ constitutional rights.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Their daughter and her fellow students were instructed to write out the Islamic creed “Shahada,” which says, “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.” When recited by non-Muslims, the creed amounts to conversion to Islam.
Students were also required to memorize and recite the Five Pillars of Islam and were subjected to disparaging teachings about Christianity.
“Most Muslims’ faith is stronger than the average Christian,” one worksheet read.
The class also spent one day covering Christianity, while teachers devoted two weeks to instructing about Islam.
After the school refused an opt-out of the assignments and threatened her with failing grades, the school principal also banned the parents from entering school property!
They chose that she would not complete the worksheets anyway.
The complaint filed earlier this year 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.”
When does the insanity end?
I learned about the world’s religions 30 years ago in school, on a level playing field. We discussed all of them, in a historical fashion, without propaganda!
It is not the teaching of the historic nature of religion in history, it is the school teaching in a very lopsided imbalance! It is blatant! If a school taught Christianity in such a way, liberals would be outraged!
It is happening all over, most likely in your child’s school! This video covers MANY incidents!
