Protesters ask school board to reconsider teaching Islam

A group of protesters asked the Manhattan Beach Unified School District to review how it teaches Islam at the school board’s meeting on Dec. 10.

A couple stood outside the building’s entrance with signs that said “Stop teaching Islam,” and “No Islam en la escuela” [sic]. As people entered, they handed out pamphlets that said in all caps, “TEACHING ISLAM WITHOUT WARNING LABELS IS LIKE STORING DRAINO IN A SUGAR BOWL.”

During the meeting, 11 individuals explained how they thought the school board should change or eliminate its teaching of Islam.

“Mein Kampf reads like a love story compared to the Quran,” said Steve Amundson. “I propose Islam be removed from the curriculum. It’s more akin to Nazism than a religion”…

    I’m surprised the school board didn’t have them charged with a hate crime.

  • Oh, you can teach Islam. Just make sure to note how culturally, chronologically and theologically incongruous it is. Make sure to mention the bits about wars, murder, booty, lying and nine-year old girls.

    Just the sort of push back that’s needed. More numbers though.

      I used it as an insomnia cure.
      Man, you really have to want to finish that book.
      Heck, even Mouselini hated that book.
      It really sucks.
