What ever happened to the separation of church and state? If the public school system which is run by the government can’t teach Christianity or celebrate Christianity, it certainly shouldn’t be allowed to teach about Islam either. This is just more of the left wing’s agenda getting pushed through the door of education. It needs to stop!
When these parents in San Diego found out Islam was being taught to their children…they went beserk!
Parents were reportedly furious after learning that the San Diego School Board of Trustees partnered with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, to launch an anti-bullying campaign. The campaign involves educating children about Islam, with the purported goal being to help students learn to respect each other.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that the campaign became controversial after it was picked up by conservative websites, but Trustee Kevin Beiser defended it, saying that there were misunderstandings about what the campaign’s goals are. “We will not allow Muslim students in San Diego schools to be spit on,” he said, but it didn’t placate the angry parents.
“All students should be safe,” a parent said. “What about the Jews?” another parent added. After the uproar died down, Beiser agreed with them, saying that no student should be bullied. “We have made sure that, through the superintendent’s recommendation, we’re going to try to do a better job so when we teach in history class about Buddhism, Judaism and Christianity, we’re also going to teach about Islam,” he explained. But this didn’t satisfy the parents, either.
And when one father stood up to speak his mind, the parents cheered.
“My name is Christopher Wyrick, I’m a father, a husband, and a very, very proud American,” he said. “I’ve been given many titles in my life, but the one I’ll never accept is the one of ‘infidel.’”
“At what point did you decide it was OK to teach my children about Islam?” he demanded. The school board tried to cut him off, and keep him from continuing, but he refused to stop. “You’re gonna have to drag me outta here!” he shouted, as other parents applauded and cheered.
Some speakers at the meeting accused CAIR of being affiliated with terrorist groups. While the United States doesn’t consider CAIR to be a terrorist group, the United Arab Emirates has linked them to terrorism. And unfortunately for the angry parents at the school board meeting, the campaign was not on the official agenda, so no action was ultimately taken.
This is OUTRAGEOUS! This is nothing more than the left wing’s agenda to indocrinate our students into the Muslim religion.
Let’s be REAL! This is NOT about Bullying! But through that window…CAIR is walking through and defending their ‘Religion of Peace’.
Should the San Diego School District or any other PUBLIC school district be allowed to teach about Islam and indoctrinate our young minds into Muslim?
There is no evidence to show that those students of Muslim backgrounds are being harassed to the extent that public tax dollars should be used to fund Muslim beliefs in San Diego School District.
Give me a frickin’ break!
It is time to wake up! Get CAIR and their pro-Islamic curriculum out of all public schools!
Americans do NOT want their young children indoctrinated into this horrific religion.
