Remember TIZA, the tax-funded charter school in Minnesota the state Department of Education cited for impermissibly advancing Islam? Remember the school in California last fall that launched an “Islamic Awareness Week,” only to pull the plug when parents complained? Now we have CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, promoting Islam during class time in a public school in the Houston area. Outraged parents and members of the community have vigorously protested this action, and some are calling for the principal to be fired. Below is a WorldNetDaily story. At the end of the story we have inserted a link to an organization called the Houston Area Pastor Council. If you click on that link you will be able to read the Pastor Council’s press release, an email from a parent whose child sat through the mandatory presentation on Islam, and the principal’s weak rationale for scheduling the mandatory session. You’ll note that parents were not informed in advance nor were they given the opportunity to opt their children out. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BRAVE NEW SCHOOLS Texas children roped into Islamic training Class by CAIR teaches: 'There is one god, Allah' http://WND.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=65659 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: May 30, 2008 1:00 am Eastern By Bob Unruh © 2008 WorldNetDaily Friendswood Junior High Public school students at Friendswood Junior High in the Houston area have been roped into Islamic training by representatives from the Council on American-Islamic Relations during class time, prompting religious leaders to protest over Principal Robin Lowe's actions. Pastor Dave Welch, spokesman for the Houston Area Pastor Council, confirmed the indoctrination had taken place and called it "unacceptable." "The failure of the principal of Friendswood Junior High to respect simple procedures requiring parental notification for such a potentially controversial subject, to not only approve but participate personally in a religious indoctrination session led by representatives of a group with well-known links to terrorist organizations and her cavalier response when confronted, raises serious questions about her fitness to serve in that role," the pastors' organization said. According to a parent, whose name was withheld, the children were given the Islamic indoctrination during time that was supposed to be used for a physical education class. "I am simply trying to get the word out to those whose kids may not have told them about an Islamic presentation that all kids were required to attend," wrote the parent, who was working to assemble protests to the school board. WND previously has reported how public school textbooks being used across the nation have begun promoting Islam, teaching even the religious doctrines. WND also has reported on several other school situations in which Islam has been taught as a required subject, and when administrators have defended those decisions. In the Texas case, a school e-mail to parents provided only a half-hearted acknowledgement that such mandatory religious indoctrination might not have been the best decision. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Click here to link to the additional information provided by the Houston Area Pastor Council: http://www.imakenews.com/hapc/ 11

I've heard some of these reports.. So much for separation of church and state! First use evolution, a disproved and highly outdated 'theory' to depose our own roots, stereotype all christians as having evil intent.. so now we have the charters of other religions, being carried out (much, much stricter by the way).. - I heard the group behind these classes - C.A.R.E has a charter which says the aim is to promote getting good ole u.s. of a, under sharia law!! Can anyone say.. der, dumb blind sheep..?/citizens, that is..

It is better for everyone to understand in brief what every religion is. Not to practice it, but just to know what are they in the same way like we study history or science. If American school teaches some Chinese history nothing wrong in it, students don't have to follow communist rules to know what china and their society is. In the same way only this goes. I had studied about different religions briefly in my schools, I studied what Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, etc. nothing wrong happened here, just we knew what are they. Letting other people know what is communism, socialism, monarchy won't make them communist or secularism, but they just understand a brief idea about it. In the same way if school teaches about different religions, they are not getting forced to it, but they just know what are different belief systems. Knowing about different belief systems and cultures will help tolerance and understanding between the people in the society.
