Reader comment on item: Spreading Islam in American Public Schools

Submitted by Donald (United States), Nov 27, 2004 at 13:22

Yes, and why should we be suprised? Religion was always a taboo subject in public schools. You were never allowed to write essays or reports on what you learned over the summer - in your church or in your Sunday schools etc. And I always wondered why? I honestly wanted to.

We understood that as children [in limited fashion of course] - the separation was there for a reason - such as allowing current demographics the argument to inject 3rd hand suppositions such as - "well, we're the fastest growing religion..." "we accept Abraham as our forefather also...." "we accept jesus as a great saint and prophet..." and guess what? [sound's almost mormon doesn't it] "now we have to tell you about his succesor! pbuh..."

So the argument is correct - when you feel you have to make public schools points of social stress regarding the discussions of religion - you have really lost sight of the society. Religion is to be believed in and practiced outside of public educational institutions - led by your parents - not political mullahs that capitalize on the left-wing spin of the American moral morass. The violence also plays into the American psyche. Cowboys & Indians; Superheroes... the addictive violence in video games... American football....
