Another Reason Not To Have Kids


Sorry to shock you. We know you've come to expect high levels of moderation, reasoned discourse and cool deliberation from this blog, but when we ran across this, we felt we had to sound the alarm.

Yes, that's right, our children are being trained to be Islamofacisitcommie ninja warriors, and what's worse, they're learning how to destroy western our very own public schools!

Islam is being taught in the nation's public schools as a religion to be embraced because "organized Islamists have gained control of textbook content," according to an organization that analyzes textbooks. "While we were busy protecting our borders they sneaked in around us and took over the publishing industry," said Gilbert T. Sewall, who wrote the organization's report on Islam and textbooks. "Who even knew they could read English?"

Middle East Forum director Daniel Pipes even has repeatedly expressed concern about the "privileging of Islam in the United States" and warns the stakes go well beyond 7th-grade texts. "It's almost like they're saying Islam is as good as Christianity," he said. "And when they throw in that stuff about how the arabs contributed things like the arithmetic the style of writing digits from right to left, the introduction of the number zero, made contributions to fractions and to the principle of errors, which is employed to solve Algebra problems arithmetically, excelled in geometry, starting with the transition of Euclid and conic section of Apolonios and they preserved the genuine works of these two Greek masters for the modern world, well, you can see how the kids can be seduced by that."

It has gotten so bad that parent Kendalee Garner objected to having her son being taught Islam, including the memorization of the "Five Pillars" of Islam and dressing up as a Muslim. "And as if that wasn't bad enough, he told me he wanted to wear the chador! Islam made my son a fairy!" she told reporters.

That episode followed a U.S. Supreme Court decision just a few weeks ago not to review a lower court's ruling that a similar class requirement in the Byron Union School District in California, where students were instructed to "become Muslims" was "cultural education."

"Now you tell me how that's 'cultural education,' asked Pipes. "Islam isn't our culture, Jesus is."

A man arrested as a terrorist suspect for allegedly trying to transport $340,000 from a group tied to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, and who reputedly had connections to Osama bin Laden, helped write the "Religious Expression in Public Schools" guidelines issued by President Clinton during his tenure in office. "OK, so it turns out he was actually trying to kill another Arab, but you can't be too careful with these guys," Pipes told reporters.

"Textbook editors seem not to recognize that a school-related Islamic agenda in the U.S. uses multiculturalism as a device to guarantee a purely favorable and uncritical view of all things Muslim," said Sewall. "If anybody's going to get a free ride, it's going to be us," he added.

"These passages of religious propaganda have been devised by individuals or groups that seek to use the public schools for spreading their own sectarian doctrines and for recruiting converts. In various cases, publishers evidently have accepted material from religious pressure groups and have put the material into textbooks, even though it is laden with blatant preaching, miracle-mongering and fake 'history,'" Bennetta said. "And no, I'm not talking about the Discovery Insitute," he added. "So quit asking me."

"If our nation's cultural underpinnings are in conflict with religious dogma and values that are intent on replacing or even eradicating them, should not children and their teachers be made aware?" Sewall asked. "And no, I'm not talking about Dobson, so quit asking."

"America does not comprehend Muslim resolve to make America Islam," Shroder wrote. "Suicide bombers have already demonstrated their willingness to kill and die for it," Sewall said. "Too bad we didn't think of that when we sent missionaries to Africa. Those little spear chuckers would all be praising Jesus now."
