Why are ‘Iftar dinners’ being promoted by schools, churches and official government offices?

West Virginia: Public-school students urged to ‘try fasting’ during Ramadan

Pastor Rich Penkoski says his daughter, a seventh-grader at Mountain Ridge Middle School, came home with an assignment that instructed her to write the Islamic conversion prayer, called the Shahada, in Arabic, which the teacher passed off as a “calligraphy” assignment.

Many Christians, including Penkoski, believe the Shahada — “There is no god by Allah and Muhammad is his messenger” — is blasphemous. They don’t believe Allah is the “same god” worshiped in Christianity and Judaism.

LeoHohmann.com has learned that the same teacher, Katherine Hinson, who handed out the Shahada assignment as a supplemental lesson plan, also suggested students may want to fast for a day to help them identify with Muslims during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which started last Tuesday, May 15.

We don’t cotton to this Islamic crap in West By God Virginia.
