This must stop. MUST stop. Islamic prayers in our public schools?
Muslim Prayers in School Debated San Diego Tribune hat tip sara
S.D. elementary at center of dispute
A San Diego public school has become part of a national debate over religion in schools ever since a substitute teacher publicly condemned an Arabic language program that gives Muslim students time for prayer during school hours.
Carver Elementary in Oak Park added Arabic to its curriculum in September when it suddenly absorbed more than 100 students from a defunct charter school that had served mostly Somali Muslims.
After subbing at Carver, the teacher claimed that religious indoctrination was taking place and said that a school aide had led Muslim students in prayer.
Some say the arrangement at Carver constitutes special treatment for a specific religion that is not extended to other faiths. Others believe it crosses the line into endorsement of religion.
While some parents say they care more about their children’s education than a
debate about religious freedom, the allegations – made at a school board meeting
in April – have made Carver the subject of heated discussions on conservative
talk radio. District officials have been besieged by letters and phone calls,
some laced with invective.
The parents are morons. Muslim prayers is very much apart of their "education."
[…]Carver’s supporters noted that Christianity and other religions, unlike Islam,
do not require their followers to pray at specific times that fall within school
hours, when children by law must be in school. Amid the controversy, the
district is studying alternatives to the break to accommodate student prayer.
Too effin’ bad. This AMERICA not Amerabia. If they are so religious, send them to Islamic day school.
The San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations supports the
CAIR, front for terror, supports it. Why I am shocked. SHOCKED!
