A middle school from Meriden, Connecticut sent 40 students on a field trip to a mosque in New Haven Connecticut so they could learn more about the Religion of Muslims. In other news,Christian ministers are banned from schools.
 


RecordJournal.com
"The mosque's spiritual leader, Dawood Yasin, spoke to the students about the five pillars of Islam: testifying to God's oneness; praying five times a day; charity; fasting during the holy month of Ramadan; and making at least one pilgrimage to Mecca."

Islam is one of the fastest growing religions in the United States. This should not come as a suprise when we send our children to mosques to learn more about Islam, but tell those who practice Christianity that it has to be kept seperate from school.

How nice, annother day of lost opportunity to actually teach the kids the old three R's. I always said that bringing unions to the teachers would eventually ruin the students.

If people want to do this stuff they can always do it after class time or on the many 'breaks' and days off that they give them these days.
