Our is the biggest and costliest public education system in world history–and what are we getting for it?
At Mountain Ridge Middle School in Gerrardstown, West Virginia, some parents are a bit cheesed off that their non-Muslim children are being taught to write an Islamic “declaration of faith” (http://barenakedislam.com/2018/05/17/west-virginia-parental-outrage-after-non-muslim-junior-high-school-students-were-forced-to-write-a-declaration-of-faith-to-the-religion-of-islam/). Doesn’t seem quite the ticket, does it?
First the school officials said the purpose of the exercise was to “practice writing the Islamic declaration of faith in Arabic calligraphy.” I didn’t know Muslims had to declare faith in Arabic calligraphy. Then the school said it was optional. We are at liberty not to believe this.
Meanwhile, in the “world religions” portion of Social Studies (feh!), Christianity and Judaism are notably downplayed, while Islam gets the lion’s share of ink and classroom time.
For some bizarre and probably lunatic reason, Western liberals are head-over-heels in love with Islam. They believe they can have lots and lots of Islam in their culture and still enjoy feminism, “gay rights,” and transgender bathrooms. Anyone can look at Iran and say, “Uh-uh, that ain’t gonna happen.” But apparently liberals–and most of our education hotshots are liberals–can’t see it.
And if Islam will be rough on “erotic minorities,” that’s nothing to how rough it’ll be on our sacred cow of Science.
Stupid leftids. They have no idea what they’re asking for. God help them if they get it.
