Islam ‘Isn’t a Religion’? A Teacher’s Pamphlet Makes a Controversial Claim That’s Gotten Him in Hot Water

After passing out an eight-page document which says that Islam is “not a religion” but more of an “ideology,” a Texas teacher is under scrutiny for his perceived lack of fact checking.

Some of the claims the document makes:

    • 38% of Muslims believe people that leave the faith should be executed.
    • Muhammad posed as a prophet.
    • Islam is not a ‘religion of peace.’
    • Muslims believe the entire world will one day be ruled by Sharia Law.
    • Jihad is obligatory for all Muslims.

A Muslim student at Foster High School shared the document with his parents, who then proceeded to contact the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

I’ve posted the document below, you can see why CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood front group, is upset, and while I can’t vouch for every statement made,  the teacher used well known data backed by reputable organizations such as Pew Research. In short – he told the truth.

  • BillyHW

    The truth will not be tolerated.

  • Facts are facts. The left and Muslims can try to hide the facts.

    Keep repeating the facts. It pisses of the left and Muslims. And sooner of later, the facts will win out.

    Fact: Islam is a cult. If you can’t quit without worrying about being killed – it’s a cult.

    • It is a cult and has to be treated as such.

      • Gaian

        Calling islam a cult assumes that islam has a religious basis. islam is not a religion or a cult, it is an extremely violent and brutally oppressive ideology akin to fascism and communism. It is a totalitarian concept ruled by vicious dictators. islam is the enemy of civilized behavior and educated enlightenment. islam is a disease that needs to be eradicated.

    When its not “hate speech”, the truth is “controversial”.

    Worth saving and e-mailing to others.

    More revisionism. It goes to prove how messed up CAIR and the US are, in Canada we bitch because teachers don’t tell the truth in the US they bitch because they do tell the truth. I don’t know who said it or the exact words but “in war truth is the first casualty” and we are the preliminary stages of war with Islam the same as the League of Nations were with Nazi Germany in the 1930s.

    How about having this guy as a guest speaker at the school?

    Whatever label you put on it it mandates incessant sedition.

  • Clausewitz

    Yet another example that truth is no longer a defense.

  • But what in the pamphlet is false?

    Islam IS a political system as well as a religion.

    There is overwhelming support for sharia law.

    I see the article is gracious enough to provide CAIR’s pamphlet…now where can we find the teacher’s pamphlet? That’s the one we all need.
