Schools: Islam...Yes! Christianity...No!

OneNewsNow--An expert on Islam explains that schools across the United States have implemented radical Islamic curriculum in public schools.

Brigitte Gabriel, founder of ACT! for America, explains that students are required to become a Muslim for three weeks, adopt Muslim names, memorize verses from the Quran, and visit a mosque for a field trip. If students try their best on assignments, she says, they will be guaranteed a good grade.

Students in these programs, laments the conservative activist, must also recite the Islamic prayer for salvation, which describes Islam as a straight path to God -- and Christianity in error.

"Here's what they're teaching in the public schools; [here's] what they're telling the students they have to memorize and recite," she says -- "'Praise be to Allah, Lord of Creation, the compassionate, the merciful, king of judgment day. You alone we worship, and to you alone we pray for help.'"

Gabriel sees more than a little inconsistency in how the material is being presented. "Remember, this is public school where we can't even say we have a Christmas break -- we have a 'winter break,'" she exclaims. "Where we can't even say we have Easter break -- it's now called 'spring break.'"

The ACT! for America president explains that Islamic ideologies are prevalent in textbooks, such as the way the term "jihad" is explained. She says instead of portraying the idea as one of violence and bloodshed, the texts describe it as a struggle against oppression -- the same description that al-Qaeda presents.

She argues that "what they're doing is literally brainwashing our students to prepare them to turn against our own soldiers and our own military and government by basically feeding them the talking points of al-Qaeda."

Gabriel contends that if students were to recite Bible verses, adopt Christian names, and learn a Christian prayer for salvation, many Americans would be infuriated, arguing it violates the alleged separation of church and state. But because of political correctness, she says, Islamic indoctrination is allowed in public schools. (Source)

I think teaching about religions, including Islam, is good, but this is too much. I'm glad my school isn't this stupid. If my teacher told me to do that, I would just not do it. I think failing would be better.

Or maybe I would do it, but when I would visit the mosque, I would preach Christianity there.

Ok, so the obvious question is, where did this happen? I can't find anything on OneNewsNow or on Gabriel's website.

Okay......I'm very, very SCARED here.

It seems like our public school systems are very hostile to the Christian faith. Hence they obliterated things like prayer in school. However, when it comes to Islam, they will cater to that religion. People are too cowardly to speak out against Islam.

"Lord Jesus, when are you going to return???? It seems like Islam is creeping in taking over this country. I hope You come soon so you can destroy this false religion."

Brigitte says....

Christianity is the straight path to God -- and Islam is the error.

Is Brigitte Gabriel credible? I would really like to know which public schools in which cities are doing this.

Sorry, but this just sounds bogus.

Tolerance is not unconditional acceptance of the tenets or practices of any religion. Nor is it silence.
If you are a Christian, you must assert that Islam is profane and that Mohammed is a false prophet. You must also assert that Jesus is the Son of God, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, and that he was crucified and rose again for the sake of humanity.
Islam offers only perfection.
A long time ago, the West decided that reason and forbearance of human frailty were better. If our textbooks were written from a rationalist point of view, they would not indulge Islam.

man ... real scary .. how they try to dominate every where they go ... I mean they still are a minority here and still have such dominance, think about the future of america once they gain a substantial foothold. MY India with a Hindu dominated society is way better than a Muslim dominated society.

Ooh, state-sponsored religion?

I'd like to know where this is taking place: names and locations of these schools. The principals and superintendents in charge need to know the error of allowing this type of activity.

Hello every one, I also would have liked to seen the article to have contained supporting documentation. Here are two articles.

VIDEO: Public School Students Learn to Pray to Allah in Wellesley, Massachusetts

VIDEO: Islamist Indoctrination In American Schools

I had an article somewhere about Texas recently banning whitewashed Islamic textbooks in schools, but could not find it.

Happy Thanksgiving

If this is happening, our nation is lost to Islam and Sharia law. I remember when my children were young and the schools started teaching "I have two fathers." and all of that homosexual nonsense. Now there is an entire generation which almost entirely believes that homosexuality is another legitimate form of human sexuality, genetically programed from birth.

I probably should start shopping for a burka now, while I can get them on sale.

Nayh--I'll just choose the stoning and go ahead and get it over with.
