Of course Islam shouldn't be taught in schools, no one ever said that it should be. The problem is religion, no matter which one, is being forced on children in this public school. Deflecting the attention to Islam doesn't neegate what is going on here.
If you'd like to make a thread pertaining to Islam being taught in schools then I'd be more than willing to participate and throw it a S&F. Religion should not be a part of a school environment, whether it be Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity,Mormonism, whatever the case may be.

It may be the parents' job to do it, but when does the parent get to choose what school the child gets to go to as part of their job?
Oh, no, they don't get to do that unless they have a lot of extra money on top of their taxes, and God help them if they think part of the schooling should include topics other than the typical atheist agenda. See, in America, you send your child to the school in the district you live in, and no matter what, it can't include any topics that are other than atheist and politically correct.
So, if you should want to try to find a school that teaches religion, you are SOL unless you happen to be relatively wealthy.
Now, explain to me how that is fair to anyone other than atheists?

Fair? More "fair" them spending 1,000s than the State spending millions to change everything for that family.
The Sabine Parish School Board has only recently been made aware of the lawsuit filed by the ACLU. A lawsuit only represents one side's allegations, and the board is disappointed that the ACLU chose to file suit without even contacting it regarding the facts.
The school system recognizes the rights of all students to exercise the religion of their choice and will defend the lawsuit vigorously

Belief in God doesn't constitute Religion though...that is the battle I see at hand given the claims and filed paper work.
Without that "moral code" we seem to have moved into a "no moral code" code. The evidence of this change runs right through the political spectrum, top to bottom. With stunning new lows everywhere one looks.
Name the school or it's BS.
