Time To End The Pro-Islam Agenda In Tennessee Classrooms

In the past month Tennessee parents of middle school children have become aware of a pro-Islam agenda that we have allowed to seep into our state curriculum, standards and textbooks, used in the classroom. In Maury County students were expected to recite the first of the Five Pillars of Islam, which is the Islamic prayer of confession known as the Shahada: “There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is His prophet.”

Other similar assignments have taken place in other counties across Tennessee.


I doubt we shall see such an article in Trudopia.

    Can you imagine the progressive melt down if children were required to recite The Lord’s Prayer?

    That’s Matthew 6:9-13 for those that slept through Sunday School.

      Exactly and as usual the ACLU is no where to be found.

    ‘Conversely, there are only two learning objectives related to Christianity…’

    I hate to be the asshole/atheist, but, if they are allowed to teach about one religion, who is surprised when a follower of another religion, especially Islam, expects that teachers in the same school teach about his/her religion as well?

    Granted, Islam is vastly more represented in the lessons than Christianity or any other religion.
    (Which also comes as no surprise, given how demanding Muslims can be.)

    The same leak that allows harmless water to seep in is the same leak that lets in pests.

      I diagree. Islam has absolutely nothing to do with the culture and traditions of the people there. Christianity most certainly does even if they are only nominal or cultural Christians. Islam is a foreign import and alien to the culture, traditions and history of the state, so why grant it any space at all, unless one buys into the idea that tradition and culture are bad unless you include all foreign traditions and cultures and give them equal value. Even as a non Christian I can understand this.

        ‘ Islam is a foreign import and alien to the culture, traditions and history of the state, so why grant it any space at all’

        Muslims take advantage of political correctness and unfettered multiculturalism.

          Totally agree which is why buying into this cultural marxism was buying into self-destruction. Not a single non Western country accepts this rubbish – PC, multiculturalism, diversity, etc.

    How about mandating the teaching of Islam correctly as corrective action for presenting CAIR’s false portrayal of Islam. They can choose materials from Spencer, Bostom or Coughlin (for example).
