Florida High School Has Students Design Prayer Rugs, Recite First Pillar Of Islam As "Homework"

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Social studies“;

A Seminole County, Florida high school world history teacher sent an assignment home with students instructing them to design a Muslim prayer rug and recite the first Pillar of Islam: “There is no god, but Allah, and Muhammed is his prophet.”

One upset parent, Ron Wagner, said his son showed him the lesson on Islam from his world history textbook and a text from the teacher reminding him to make the rug. The father was shocked to find out that his son was learning “so extensively” about religion.

“For it to be mandatory and part of the curriculum and in the textbooks, didn’t seem right,” Wagner told local WFTV in an interview. “I could not understand how there would be an exception for this particular religion at the same time we have obvious bans on…prayer being taught in school.”

Welcome to Obamerikastan, Mr. Wagner.  A little tardy in shedding your eye scales – okay, a lot – but better late than never, I always say.

But, however belatedly, he’s getting quite an education:

Wagner’s son explained to his father that in the class, the teacher wrote the first Pillar of Islam on the board and had students recite it aloud. Some students refused to say it; the teacher [demanded] full participation and had them recite it again.

I wonder what the penalty for non-compliance was.  What used to be called “hacks” in my youth seem so wimpy in comparison to what probably awaited unruly students in the imam’s principal’s office.

When Wagner confronted school officials with his protests, they indicated to him that they did not see a problem in the curriculum, nor how it was being taught.

Hmmm; usually “school officials” aren’t nearly that candid about their dhimmism and at least try to put on the fiction that “They had no idea” and “they’ll get to the bottom of it,” followed by the usual walkback for PR purposes, as though the teacher in question was a freelancing rogue.

The other point of concern for Wagner was the fact that this teacher broke protocol and sent the assignment via text to his son rather than the more typical e-mail to parents. “The fact that this is the only teacher that communicated with my son, directly to his cell phone, gave me the impression that by doing so, would cut us as parents out of the loop,” Wagner said. [emphases added]

Which it couldn’t be any more obvious was the whole point.  After all, whose kid do you think your son is, Mr. Wagner?  Yours?

At this point, Wagner took his concerns to the district’s superintendent who then began an investigation.

It was determined that a “manufacturer defect” left sixty-eight copies of a one-year-old set of textbooks without the chapters on Christianity, as well as Judaism. There was no answer as to why the textbook was allowed to be used anyway. Wagner remains unsatisfied with the district’s investigation.

Oh, I think I can supply a theory or two.

But of course, I can see the Seminole County Superintendent’s “investigation” report now: That their “world history” textbooks completely omitted anything, even blasphemous and derogatory, about Christianity and Judaism, but not only included the Muslim chapter but also had the “teacher” practically covert the students to Islam and make suicide bomber jackets as extra credit assignments was “purely random” and “coincidental” and in no way reflects the “official” policy of the Seminole County School District.  Other than that it does.

I can hardly wait to see the taqiyya chapter.

Exit quote from the “high school curriculum head,” “Dr.” Michael Blasewitz: “If anything, it’s a little imbalanced toward Christianity and Judaism.” Nothing like contrition and repentance, is there?

      Hi. Do any of you know a good homework help site? I have problems with physics and would like to improve my grades. I think I can do it only with a service like this, because I don’t understand physics at all.

    • CalvinPearson

      Hi, buddy. I understand your problem very well ’cause I was in a similar situation. Physics is hard science that is not for everyone. I think that AssignCode specialists, who always do my homework for me, can help you. I really like that they answer very quickly and I can get a finished work in a very short time. Try to leave your application on their website, maybe their services will suit you.
