How Our Education System Uses Your Money …….. By Teaching Islam


This story seems to have the wrong focus, or attempt to create a diversion. 

Former Marine banned from daughter’s school after dispute over Islam lesson

A former Marine who served in Iraq says he’s been banned from his daughter’s Maryland high school after a heated argument over a lesson on Islam.

Kevin Wood told that he went to La Plata High School in La Plata, a town about 30 miles southeast of Washington, and challenged a history assignment requiring students to list the benefits of Islam. He said the meeting with the vice principal got heated; the school said he made a threat and banned the Iraq veteran from school property.

“[Wood] was threatening to cause a disruption or possible disruption at the school,” a district spokesperson said.

Wood did not deny getting worked up over the issue, but said he was standing up for the Constitution and is against any religion being taught at the public school.

“I have witnesses that have said I did not threaten anybody,” he told the station. “I don’t force my religious views on them, so don’t force your religious views on me.”

The school is allowing his eleventh-grade daughter to spend the class time in the school’s library, but defended its assignment and said it is teaching world history, not religion.

Wood’s wife, Melissa, wondered how teaching about one religion is considered a history lesson while teaching about Christianity would be viewed diffrerently.

“We cannot discuss our Ten Commandments in school but they can discuss Islam’s Five Pillars?”

The three-page assignment asked questions including, “How did Muslim conquerors treat those they conquered?”

A homework assignment obtained by showed the correct answer was, “With tolerance, kindness and respect.”

Certainly, that the father was banned from the school is a worthy story, but, I wouldn’t think it to be the focus of this story!

The story did touch on some more important issues, but, didn’t highlight it. 

Melissa is correct.  Try and teach the benefits of Christianity in an historical context and watch the atheists come out of the woodwork.  I wonder where they’re at on this?  Clearly, the application of the SCOTUS “Separation” edict is violated here.  Which is unfortunate, because I believe if one is to properly teach history, one must discuss Christianity and Islam, as well as Judaism, because, one can’t understand Christianity without discussing Judaism.  However, propaganda, such as seems obvious in this case, should never be tolerated. 

Q:  “How did Muslim conquerors treat those they conquered?”

A:  “With tolerance, kindness and respect.”

That’s an eleventh grade history test question?????  It’s sophist, and plainly in error.  To be sure, there were some Muslim warriors who did treat those who they conquered with “tolerance, kindness and respect”.  But, it certainly wasn’t/isn’t universally true.  Indeed, the long list of atrocities committed by Muslims started with the first Muslims and has continued unfettered ever since. 

How ironic is it that in the US, many history lessons attack American heritage because they once had legalized slavery, but, praises a religion which actively participates in such a practice?

People, this nation needs to purge our education system of the anti-American POSs who are teaching indoctrinating our children.  And we need to do it now.  I can’t stress the urgency enough.

    Well, you never know whether the idiots really believe that or whether they’re kissing up to some Saudi sugar daddy who chips in.

    ANY religious propaganda has no place at public school, be it christian, muslim, buddhist or (brace yourselves) atheist, or any other… That said, I do not think, explaining history could be done correctly without at least mentioning religious differences.

    History lessons should provide both facts and context.
    The questions like “How did Muslim conquerors…” completely lack context. If my son ever brings this kind of question from school, I’ll just tell him to write: “That depends on time and place in question. Please specify.” And the teacher, who considers this incorrect will have a hell of a time to answer the question “How did the teacher respond to unexpected, but correct answer?”. (He smiled, accepted the answer and praised the kid, of course 🙂 )
    Or maybe he could explain to me, how the Germans were building concentration camps in the 10th century…

    There is a well written article here which describes the ottoman empire slave industry:

    this is what muslim do now about discussing religion:

    this is how they share water with others now in this century:

    “Asia Bibi, 46, was accused of blasphemy after dispute with Muslim women, Women told her Christians make Muslims’ water ‘unclean’ by drinking it “!

    Why do the teachers at that school not travel to Saudi and talk to a mufti there their religious views and argue about tolerance and come back when they agreed they should practice free any religion of their choice in Saudi?

    This should greatly improve their understanding of tolerance and respect.

    Before talking of tolerance and respect why don’t these people work to see this happening now in islamic countries where so many tragedies happen these days?

    What happens to a muslim that wants to leave islam? Is there a punishment or is this act tolerated? How can they talk of tolerance in this conditions?

    Petition to return confiscated churches in Turkey:

    Unfortunately there is a lot of room to improve until we see that preached tolerance and respect. What these people do is insulting all those victims of intolerance.
