Parents in Chatham, New Jersey are demanding answers from the local board of education as it pertains to what their children are being taught in their 7th grade social studies class. According to Nancy Gayer and Libby Hilsenrath, their children are being given lessons about Islam that would never be acceptable if they were about Christianity.

In fact, Gayer said at a board meeting on Monday, her son was specifically chastised a few years ago when he gave a PowerPoint presentation that briefly mentioned his religious views. Gayer said he was told to stop “proselytizing” when he included a Bible quote in his slideslow. The teacher told him that a quote like that “belongs in Sunday School.”

Gayer and other parents asked the board to explain why that was off-limits, but it was perfectly fine for the teacher to have the students learn about the religious tenets of Islam.

“My sincere issue – according to policy 2270 – the board of education directs that no religious beliefs be promoted or disparaged,” Gayer said at the meeting. “I’m asking the board meet with the policy committee and eliminate the teaching of Islam and all other religions.”

Hilsenrath passed out materials being used in the classroom, which included a cartoon that made extraordinary statements about Islam.

    Congratulations to parents that pay attention to what their children are being taught and kudoos to those that bother to express their opinions and try to have impact in the education of their children, our future adults and the ones that will hold responsibilities to us as we age out.

    Parents need to start a nationwide petition to later go to Congress and enact into law about the political cult called Islam. The petition needs to state the founding fathers did NOT allow the presence of Islam or their doctrine in our country at its creation and this is to continue unobscured in the path as dictated by our forefathers.
