Separation of Church & State. If its good for the Christians, its good for the Islamists!

Reader comment on item: Other Taxpayer-Funded American Madrassas
in response to reader comment: Muslim Schools in America

In the end, no taxpayer funds can be used to teach any subject that includes any religion as part of the curricula. Islamic religion demands those who subscribe to Islam also subscribe to Sharia. In this country, Sharia is incompatible with the legal system and everyday life.

One cannot push for Crosses to be taken down, while making no noise about subjects, etc. in an Islamic school that also includes the faith. To learn the language does NOT require one to learn the culture. Not does it require one to learn the religion. It may help to understand them, but when that understanding is couched in words & phrases that promotes, encourages, excuses, or demands one to see the language as a faith experience, then its wrong & needs to be stopped.

This nation has been going through times when any mention of anything religious, and especially Christian, is not only forbidden, lawsuits proliferate the system to end such practices. Yet we also hear that some taxpayer funds were used to install Muslim foot-baths. Those foot-baths are part of a religious experience. They are not cultural alone, they are culturally religious. Those foot-baths are completely illegal.

The entire Muslim issue will come to a head when someone tries to force Sharia somewhere & people finally say, no way. We have one constitution and it forbids religion as part of its function.
