Become a Muslim warrior

Reader comment on item: 'Become a Muslim warrior'

If we apply the recent Colorado school decree about "fairness when it comes to ceramic tiles" to the Byron School's Islam project, wouldn't you have to see examples of:

- Students taking European names (it's California...there are no European names in California) like William, Edward, Mary or Elizabeth?

- Staging of historic battles by crusaders to rescue the Holyland from those barbaric Islamic invaders?

- Battle cries of "God save the King/Queen"?

- Students adopting European mannerisms like standing or removing ones hat when a lady enters the room?

- Pledging ones sacred honor to a worthy cause?

- Hearing scripture text like "For God so loved the world that he sent His only Son to be it's Savior"?

Yeah...right. And then just sit back and watch the ACLU come a runnin' screaming "Separation of Church and State!!" and slapping every administrator in sight with a court injunction or law suit because a follower of Islam got offended. You can't have it both ways.
Submitting....
