A Clash Over Teaching Islam to 7th Graders in Tennessee

by Rod Kackley

State lawmakers, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), and parents of Tennessee schoolkids are worried about the way children are learning about “the world of Islam” in a social studies course being taught in the state’s middle schools.

But dozens of Tennessee public school districts are using a form letter supplied by an attorney to resist efforts to tell parents and lawmakers everything they want to know about the course.

Among other things that bother parents, the kids are required to memorize the five pillars of Islam and are instructed to write “Allah is the only God,” according to WSMV-TV in Franklin, Tenn. One parent said more than 20 pages of her child’s social studies textbook is devoted to studying Islam.

That amounts to three weeks of classroom instruction, more time than is spent teaching the seventh-graders about Christianity.


Why are they teaching religion in government gulags?

There is an agenda!!  It is all part of destroying our judeo-christian culture.
Christianity is not compatible with marxism!

So, where the hell is FFRF in all this?  They'll take a 6 year old to court for mentioning Jesus in a book report, but when the 1st Amendment is GENUINELY violated in public schools, they're conspicuously absent.  Further proof their agenda is anti-CHRISTIAN, not anti-religion.
