Religion in School?

A good friend sent the following to me. If, in fact, it is true, I wouldn't like it either. You can paste the link to a friend. I just don't want to put this email; I think it would considered unseemly.

"Did you know that Hilliard, Ohio, has a special room for Muslims to pray? In the High School........................YES, call the school if you aren't believing....

Sorry NO CHRISTIAN, Jewish, or any other religion available..........

This was checked out on Politi facts and Ask and both confirmed.

I can't begin to tell you how livid I am over this. Our children are not allowed to recite The Lord's Prayer, not allowed to bring a Bible to school, not allowed to wear a Christian themed T-Shirt, not allowed to have Bible study classes at school, not allowed to display a picture of Jesus, and now this Peace of Crap President, is going to use federal tax dollars to promote Islam to our children.

Enough is ENOUGH ! Where are all these "Christian-hating, separation of church and state" athiests? Why aren't they lining up the to sue the federal government over the use of federal tax dollars to promote a religion in our public schools? I would be willing to bet that nobody will hear a peep out of the "Freedom From Religion" organization.

Obama Administration Announces Nationwide Muslim Outreach Program For Children Grades K-12.

American children gathered around a Muslim learning about the Quran... For school credit.

Washington DC: At a press conference Friday afternoon, President Obama announced plans for the first ever federally funded Muslim outreach program.
The program will be available nationwide for all elementary school students grade K-12 beginning February 1st, 2014.
  • The program is designed to educate children about the fundamentals of the Muslim religion and Islamic belief. President Obama spoke with reporters to explain why it is so important that these outreach programs exist. The Muslim community deserves our full understanding and respect, Obama said. We have killed millions of Muslims overseas since the September 11th attacks.
  • These folks are not all bad. In fact, most of them are hardworking citizens just like you and me. I encourage every student in America to participate in your schools Muslim outreach program. Learn about the Muslim community, the beauty of the Sunnah and the magic of the Quran.
  • 35-year-old Paul Horner, a teacher at Starks Elementary School in Louisiana, told MSNBC he is excited about the new programs. I think anything a child can learn is good. We need more learning in this country. And, these classes are not mandatory but children can use them as extra credit towards other classes.
  • For example, if Becky has a D+ in math she can simply take a three week after school class on the Quran and now Sally has an A in Math. How great is that?
  • The Muslim youth outreach program is designed to help young people from different cultures work together to break down ethnic barriers. Their goal is to help promote a greater respect for other cultures, understanding while at the same time learning about all that culture has to offer.
  • Khaled Matei, who is a member of the Muslim Brotherhoods Freedom and Justice Party, told CNN he is pleased with Obama and his actions. I spoke with President Obama by telephone yesterday and personally thanked him for what he is doing for the Muslim community, Matei said. This is definitely a step in the right direction I explained to him. 
  1. Do we do this for other cultures and religions? NO
  2. Do we federally fund religion for other religions? NO"
(Just another way to mess with our freedoms. If we cannot have Bible Studies at Public Schools, we should not be having Muslim training at them either. Muslims are a minority in this country and if they want their children to be trained in their religion, they should train them in their own temple or at home. Barbara Duke) 


5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

7 If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

BTW, if Sally gets an "A" because she took a Muslim training class, it is a real pity that she still won't understand math. I know because I took classes to avoid math.
