the abuse stems from forcing people to follow a particular path, it's abusing if one is forced into a burka, but it can be a statement of faith when it's done of one's own will.
in western cultures you will find women that you will never ever see in public in a pair of slacks. they just feel that it's morally inappropriate clothing for a women. no one is forcing them into this position, they have chosen it. is it abusive for us to allow them to follow their own version of what is moral and what isn't?
although, I do believe that the christian religion also steps over the line, like when they encounter a women who is a victim of spousal abuse and they insist that god would want her to remain in a dangerous situation.... which does happen!

If we embrace the SJW lifestyle it should be pointed out how offensive the word "retard

People, dont fall for the bigot baiting. One woman out of how many?

Wheres the threads about saudi arabia , or hindus killing muslims, or muslins being intollerant of gays, or any of a multitude inter racial/religious issues going on worldwide?

This bigot baiting trend of Americans is solely to push an agenda.

Shameful.


I guess one thread at a time. There's sure enough hate in the world to go around. Huh?

Teaching about religion is for churches and Mosques it has no place in our schools.

I taught my son to treat everyone equally and respectful.

I will teach my new grandson to hate Islam.

Religion of any stripe has no business in a public school classroom.

The same is true for partisan politics.

Forget Islam for a second, and read that sentence.


You're definitely not a brainwasher.

I love how the same posters that jump into every thread about Christianity and it's history on ATS just to troll/bash it show up in this thread to defend teaching Muslim history in US schools.

No, you have it wrong there.

It is not permitted to preach religion in schools. That would be a violation of the secular separation of Church and State. However, educating a young person in a broad and comprehensive manner, which should be something that all parents who have ever lived desire for their young, requires that a child learn about the various cultures, religions and philosophies which exist on this world. Therefore, teaching a person about the history, basic outline of, and practice of Islam is no different than teaching a person about Buddhism, or Hinduism, Sikhism, Christianity or Judaism, in that there is no preaching occurring, only teaching.

Frankly, the reaction this woman had is blown WAY out of all proportion to what actually happened, and would be impossible if she her self was a properly educated person. As it is, her child probably has more raw intellect and information than she does, and I hope so, because to judge from this womans reaction to the content of a lesson in school, you have to assume that when her daughter asks her to help her with serious life issues, that the answers she is going to get are going to be somewhere between utterly bloody useless, and pants on head retarded.

Why is that? There are plenty of American Muslims happily learning about the history of Christianity in American public schools.


And no one threw a fit . Best you read below if you think the shoe wont fit the other foot .

www.thepoliticalinsider.com...

That's not the same thing as in the OP. Celebrating Christmas is honoring a religion. The example in the OP is teaching a religion's history.

Then get the hell off my planet and stop poisoning the human race with your phobic, mindless dross. I am sick and tired of people who clearly have all the intellect of a packet of malformed nails, choosing to destroy the minds of the young, rather than let them grow in compassion, and by so doing heal this broken world.

Your attitude is as much of a cancer to the human species as is the behaviour of terrorist groups the world over, and you should be utterly ashamed of yourself.

This is what you get when people are poorly educated, :


Being taught Islam makes you highly educated? How about those who don't give a damn about religion? Are they poorly educated?

I love how you don't understand the nuance of people being mad at Christians trying to get schools to actually TEACH their religion versus teaching the religion's history. Because of course you don't. That would require you to actually attempt to learn something about the situation instead of doing a useless drive by post.

Got it... teaching about a religion is ok as long as you approve it..

So much for separation of church and state... Teaching young impressionable teens/pre-teens about a religion (any religion) does influence the way they think even if its not being "pushed" overtly.

The state has no business promoting any religion... teaching it in school is a form of govt promotion.


ETA: or do you think all teachers are capable of teaching without inputting their personal opinions?


ETA: I have no problem with a generic religious class that does not focus on any one in particular.

You understood nothing I typed didn't you?
