Should children be taught about religion in school is a question that has been up for debate for a while, but most people can agree that if religion is going to be taught then it should be equally without favoring anything or focusing on one religion while ignoring another. For some liberals, they don’t care about equality or tolerance and they’ve decided that it is a good idea to promote Islam in our schools while removing any mention of Christianity, even banning prayer from students. One mom decided she wasn’t going to take it.
Tara Cali sat down with her son to do his homework to discover that his history lesson was all about Islam. Children were even asked to scan a code with their phones to hear a Muslim call to prayer. Tara was furious, so she sent a note back for the teacher.
“My son WILL not be a part of this in any sort of way,” she wrote. “This is bad teaching material. He will NOT partake, If you have a problem with it, call our lawyer.” Before sending it back, she took a picture of the note and uploaded the photo onto her Facebook account. She also wrote several Bible verses onto the worksheet, and asked, “How about Christian practices? That sheet has never come home, this year or last!”
Cali makes a good point, and parents like her would be more than likely be more amenable to these lessons if they were more equitable. if the teachers were sending a lesson in Christianity one week, Islam the next and Buddhism the week after that, it would not come across as indoctrination or favoritism. Yet, that’s never what happens.
Public education wouldn’t send home Bible verses to read or a code for children to listen to Hebrew prayers.
Another frustration with lessons on Islam is that they are far from honest. Educators don’t teach about the misogyny and violence that is inherent in sharia law; they don’t teach about the hundreds of millions of innocent people Muslims have slaughtered over the years.
They aren’t being honest about Islam. Yet they can’t teach about Christianity, because that’s “oppressive.” They can’t show the Confederate flag because people were killed and enslaved under that flag. Yet promoting Islam is fine?
Cali should be proud of herself for refusing to let her child fall prey to this kind of liberal indoctrination. More parents should follow her lead.
