U.S. School Fails Student for Refusing to Recite Islamic Prayer

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

Another grievous violation of the establishment clause in the cause of Islam. Anywhere American law and Islamic law conflict, it’s American law that must give way.In case you haven’t been paying attention, Islam has been continuously creeping into schools across America.

This is a continuation of public school school as documented in my book: Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance

U.S. school fails student for refusing to recite Islamic prayer

Also taught Muslims’ faith is stronger than Christians’
By WND, May 20, 2019:

“Most Muslims’ faith is stronger than the average Christian.”

“Islam at heart is a peaceful religion.”

Jihad is a “personal struggle in devotion to Islam, especially involving spiritual discipline.”

“To Muslims, Allah is the same God that is worshiped in Christianity and Judaism.”

“Men are the managers of the affairs of women” and “Righteous women are therefore obedient.”

The problem is that those statements were part of the instruction in a public school in Maryland, and one of the students in the classroom now is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to condemn such religious lessons funded by taxpayers.

The Thomas More Law Center has submitted a petition asking the high court to take up the case of student Caleigh Wood

“As a Christian and 11th-grader at La Plata High School in Maryland, Caleigh Wood was taught that ‘Most Muslims’ faith is stronger than the average Christian.’ She was also required to profess in writing, the Islamic conversion creed, ‘There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.’ Ms. Wood believed that it is a sin to profess by word or in writing, that there is any other god except the Christian God. She stood firm in her Christian beliefs and was punished for it. The school refused her request to opt-out or give her an alternative assignment. She refused to complete her anti-Christian assignment and consequently received a failing grade,” the legal team explained Wednesday.

Lower courts have given a free pass to the school district to teach Islam, and so TMLC filed the request with the Supreme Court to decide “whether any legal basis exists to allow public schools to discriminate against Christianity while at the same time promote Islam.”

“Under the guise of teaching history or social studies, public schools across America are promoting the religion of Islam in ways that would never be tolerated for Christianity or any other religion,” said Richard Thompson, TMLC’s president.

“I’m not aware of any school which has forced a Muslim student to write the Lord’s Prayer or John 3:16: ‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life,’” he said.

“Many public schools have become a hot bed of Islamic propaganda. Teaching Islam in schools has gone far beyond a basic history lesson. Prompted by zealous Islamic activism and emboldened by confusing court decisions, schools are now bending over backwards to promote Islam while at the same time denigrate Christianity. We are asking the Supreme Court to provide the necessary legal guidance to resolve the insidious discrimination against Christians in our public schools,” he said.Unresolved include whether or not schools can make preferential statements about one religion over another, and whether students may be required to assert religious beliefs with which they disagree.

And how do those concepts align with “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”?

The Charles County public schools and officials are defendants.

The filing explains the lower courts, despite the First Amendment’s requirements, “upheld the ability for [the school] to denigrate Petitioner Caleigh Wood’s faith and require her to write out statements and prayers contradictory to her own religious beliefs.”

The lessons “taught Islamic principles as if they were true facts, while Christian principles were treated as mere beliefs,” the filing states.

For example, students were told the “Quran is the word of Allah” but Christians believe the Gospels were revealed to the New Testament writers.

Wood refused to write that the Muslim god is the only god, and was failed for her faith.

The lower courts discounted Wood’s religious convictions and gave the school the go-ahead.

But instances of mandatory faith training, such as orders to recount a Muslim prayer in contradiction to the student’s own beliefs, conflicts with Supreme Court precedent, the filing said.

WND has reported in just the past few weeks on a legal team that dispatched cease-and-desist letters to several Washington state school districts that were promoting Islam through a Ramadan policy of giving Muslim students special privileges.

One district ordered employees to greet Muslim students in Arabic.

But in recent months the resistance to Islam indoctrination has been growing.

One group that has fought it, the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, regularly has opposed Islamic teachings in public schools.

        Ugly One, you should have thought of this when your Tribe pushed to remove all the 10 Commandments and Xtian prayer from schools.

          Actually, thats exactly what you get for demanding religion in schools. Everybodys god is welcome at that point, don’t say you weren’t warned! In this case this kid and his parents dont get any pity from me. Hey, know your enemy. You can’t just ignore it like you’ve always done. Get your acts together.
