WorldNet Daily has just released a report from the United Kingdom regarding the punishment of two seventh-grade boys, given detention, when the pair refused to kneel and pray to Allah during a religious studies class.
“This isn’t right, it’s taking things too far,” parent Sharon Luinen told the London Daily Mail. “I understand that they have to learn about other religions. I can live with that, but it is taking it a step too far to be punished because they wouldn’t join in Muslim prayer. Making them pray to Allah, who isn’t who they worship, is wrong and what got me is that they were told they were being disrespectful.”
This is not a problem unique to the United Kingdom. Just last month, a principal in a Houston School was reassigned – not dismissed – after forcing 900 students into an Islamic religious beliefs study at her school. Students were diverted from a scheduled physical education class and mandated to a special assembly where the Council on American-Islamic Relations presented a lesson on Islam. That the organization has links to terrorists groups seemed to matter very little in the age of political correctness.
Imagine any similar assembly that was pro-Christian – a law-suit would have been quickly filed. Teachers and administrators would have been dismissed.
In this assembly lesson, CAIR representatives told the students that Adam, Noah and Jesus were all Islamic prophets who announced “there is one god, his name is Allah”. They taught the five pillars of Islam. They told students how to pray five times a day. They gave instruction on Islamic religious requirements for dress.
After a generation of no public school Bible teaching, the kids of America no longer no even the basic Bible stories. Such ignorance makes them gullible and susceptible to the kind of theological distortion so typical in the Koran.
A Minnesota charter school, housed in the same building as a mosque, attacked an investigative television news crew that was attempting to determine if the publicly funded school had complied with a previous state order to stop accommodating Islamic prayers and religious programs. A substitute teacher confirmed that the school was continuing to force participation in Islamic prayers.
In the United Kingdom incident, students were forced to wear Muslim headgear and supplied with prayer mats at which time the teacher told the students – “we are now going out to pray to Allah.” One student was reprimanded for not performing the prayer correctly. Students who refused to bow and pray to Allah were given detention.
One parent said, if Muslims were forced to go to church on Sunday and take Holy Communion there would be war!
The problem is a part of a larger concern – that of creating islands of Sharia law within the United Kingdom. The dual law system being proposed is certain to lead to a similar arrangement that to that in Israel – two states, Palestinians and Israelis – in the same nation. It is prescription for anarchy!
