What’s Going on in Tennessee? Teaching Islam in Public Schools

A Tennessee lawmaker has introduced a bill into the state legislature to prevent courses containing “religious doctrine” from being taught before tenth grade. The bill is in reaction to objections by parents to a three-week curriculum under the topic of world religion for middle-school students that covers the “Five Pillars of Islam.”

The bill is the result of a grass-roots campaign by parents reacting to course requirements that obligated their children to write assignments about Islamic principles of faith, such as “Allah is the only God.” Parents have called it indoctrination.

    It is indoctrination, the same kind of disgusting far left perversion that brought the new grooming program to ontario.

    I’m sure that the legislature will do the right thing after every other possible alternative has been tried.

  • Those responsible for this type of brainwashing should be fired.

    Why does this exist in a public school?

    Because they can’t teach Christianity or else the ACLU will sue.
