"Teach Terror" is an inflamatory misnomer on this article

Reader comment on item: Spreading Islam in American Public Schools

All this article identifies is techniques used by followers of Islam, a RELIGION, to achieve the exact same result that most of my school mates used in public school to convert me to Christianity, another RELIGION. Is the author actually outraged that they suggest, for example, donating islamic books to the school library!?! Why not? Books advocating terrorism would be wrong, but I see nothing wrong with books explaining the Islamic religion.

What I wouldn't have given to have a someone try to introduce me to Islam, just to save me from all of the Christian nuts I had to endure on a daily basis (who likely went on to write for Family Security Matters.com and equally close-minded organizations (which linked to this article with the title "Teaching Terror in Our Schools."
