Since about 2009 when U.S. public-schools started introducing Islamic-related lesson plans into their curricula, there has been no corresponding instruction on Christianity, its major religious tenets or the positive impact it has had on Western civilization.
Historic figures such as Christopher Columbus and George Washington have taken on increasingly negative profiles in many schools, where “white privilege” is taught as the biggest sin handed down from our forefathers. [One Chicago-area middle school actually pressed criminal charges against Christopher Columbus in a 2017 mock trial].
Meanwhile, the instruction on Islam has in many cases crossed the line from a factual/historical analysis of the Muslim world to basically advocating for the superiority of Islam over other faiths. Muhammad is presented as some kind of seventh-century Robin Hood hero who fought for social justice and equal rights.
Take for example the case of Caleigh Wood, a Christian and 11th-grader at La Plata High School in Maryland. She was taught in the 2015-16 school year that “Most Muslims’ faith is stronger than the average Christian.”
She was also required to memorize and profess, in writing, the Islamic conversion creed: “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”
Wood believes it is a sin to profess any other god except the Christian God. She stood firm in her Christian beliefs. The school refused her request to opt-out or give her an alternative assignment. She refused to complete what she considered to be an anti-Christian assignment and consequently received a failing grade.
The Ann Arbor, Michigan-based Thomas More Law Center has seen enough.
TMLC filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of Wood claiming the school had violated the First Amendment Establishment Clause and her right not to be forced to profess faith in another religion. Both the federal district court and the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the high school’s Islamic curriculum.
In response, on Monday of this week, May 13, TMLC filed a petition asking the U.S. Supreme Court to decide whether any legal basis exists to allow public schools to discriminate against Christianity while at the same time promote Islam.
“Under the guise of teaching history or social studies, public schools across America are promoting the religion of Islam in ways that would never be tolerated for Christianity or any other religion,” said Richard Thompson, TMLC’s president and chief counsel.
“I’m not aware of any school which has forced a Muslim student to write the Lord’s Prayer or John 3:16: ‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.’”
Yet, schools have become willing instruments of Islamic indoctrination, and in Caleigh Wood’s case, the weapon of choice was the PowerPoint presentation. Caleigh and her 11th grade classmates were taught:
- “Most Muslim’s faith is strongerthan the average Christian.”
- “Islam at heart is a peaceful religion.”
- Jihadis a “personal struggle in devotion to Islam, especially involving spiritual discipline.”
- “To Muslims, Allah is the same God that is worshiped in Christianityand Judaism.”
- “Men are the managers of the affairs of women” and “Righteous women are therefore obedient.”
Those statements, par for the course at public schools across the U.S., came directly from the PowerPoint presentation given to Caleigh’s class. The underlining was in the PowerPoint.
- Some schools in states with large Muslim populations have even started closing in honor of Islamic holidays. Detroit public schools last month announced it would join Dearborn and Hamtramck public schools in closing for Eid El Fitr, the holiday that marks the end of the Ramadan fast.
- In the Seattle area, teachers are urged to “bless” their Muslim students in Arabic each day during Ramadan.
- Schools in states such as Minnesota, Texas and Michigan have special Islamic prayer rooms where Muslim students can pray during school hours without having to leave campus.
“Many public schools have become a hot bed of Islamic propaganda,” Thompson said. “Teaching Islam in schools has gone far beyond a basic history lesson. Prompted by zealous Islamic activism and emboldened by confusing court decisions, schools are now bending over backwards to promote Islam while at the same time denigrate Christianity. We are asking the Supreme Court to provide the necessary legal guidance to resolve the insidious discrimination against Christians in our public schools.”
Time to boot the Brotherhood
Hotbeds of Islamic propaganda. That’s exactly what the Muslim Brotherhood has been working on accomplishing since it established a presence in the U.S. in 1965. The Brotherhood has spawned dozens of Muslim front groups with the purpose of furthering Islamic supremacy in American cultural institutions.
In its own words, the Brotherhood’s “work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within,” so that “Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.” [See the Explanatory Memorandum, May 19, 1991, by Mohamed Akram, seized by FBI in 2004.]
President Trump has said he wants to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization but is getting serious resistance from “experts” and “professionals” within the Pentagon and U.S. State Department — otherwise known as the deep state.
The Muslim Brotherhood created the Council on American-Islamic Relations in 1994, and it also spawned the Muslim Student Association, which operates on almost every college campus and in many U.S. high schools.
The Brotherhood has spun off many violent jihadists including Ayman al-Zawihiri, the current leader of al-Qaida. But even more dangerous than its terrorist activity is the Brotherhood’s relentless and well-funded work of propaganda, sedition and influence-peddling within our government, law enforcement, education, religious and media institutions.
Corrupting the churches
The Muslim Brotherhood, working through the Islamic Society of North America, the Islamic Circle of North America, the Muslim American Society, CAIR and other front groups, is also the main instigator of so-called inter-faith dialogues with Christian churches, where Muslim leaders are invited into church sanctuaries to preach about Islam without offering Christian pastors equal access to their people in the mosques. Much of what Christians are taught about Islam at these interfaith gatherings are falsehoods and half-truths.
It’s time to kick the Brotherhood out of our schools, our government, our churches, our nation.

Mohamed was a murderer, slaver, rapist, torturer and thief. No one in their right mind would follow such an individual. The one’s that do have questionable decision making skills and impulse control
This public school book infiltration has been going on for half a century! I took a World Religions course in college in 1974 and it sugar coated Islam with numerous pages, while ignoring the fundamental beliefs of Judaism and Christianity. That was due to the Wahhabiists of Saudi Arabia buying control of American publishers. I wonder if they own them all now. I bet they do.
I wish the problem stopped at public schools. Several years ago my son was attending a Catholic middle school. They used a social studies curriculum by a major publisher. The chapter on Islam was not factually incorrect, but it used selective editing to portray Islam in the best possible light while ignoring objectionable elements. After carefully documenting this deficiency I contacted the school. They put me off and the issue was never addressed.
You cannot indoctrinate America into your warped ideology because our Constitution DEMANDS freedoms that your CULT can’t possibly embrace. You may be able to push your agenda on other countries that do not CELEBRATE liberty like the United States of America.
What’s good for the goose, is good for the gander…Or…The same treatment for all religions…Islam is not a religion, it is a cult/way of life…But…They think they’re superior…They most assuredly are not…Conversion by force — Death to all followers of other faiths — Sounds wrong, compared to any other religion on the planet…Separation of church and state, requires the elimination of ALL religious based instruction in our public schools…Period…Throw out all Islamic teaching…Period!!!
MEMO TO ALL THE ISLAMISTS OUT THERE:
Keep it all to yourselves.. Quit all the scheming. Why? Because, YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH I DON’T CARE about what you believe or do not believe.. It just does not matter to me. It does not need to matter to me.. Stop forcing your ‘bad hand’ here.
What ‘I THINK’ about your Allah, and your ‘profit’ Mohammed, is my personal business, and my personal opinion.. And, based upon the ‘BEHAVIOR’ relating to your ‘club members’, and the fact that I am an adult, with a discerning mind, I have the right to ‘Just say NO’ thanks..
Can you say…’The Crusades’? Can you say… ‘The Crusaders’? ..That’s what happened the last time you would not STOP..
Quit insisting upon shoving my face into your insane-o-world-7th century gooooo.. Keep to yourselves if you will not become civilized human beings, who assimilate, and embrace the ‘live and let live’ 21st Century world we live in..
Otherwise, ‘there is no place for you in the future’ (TODAY)…
IF YOU DO NOT ‘GET IT’, for goodness sake, GO HOME AND CLEAN UP YOUR OWN ‘HOUSE’, before you tinker with mine.. Stop all the killing.. Stop all the raping.. Stop all the violence.. Just stop!
Hint: WE DO NOT WANT TO JOIN YOUR CLUB.. That is not a sin at all.. It’s self-preservation stupid.. It’s called FREEDOM stupid..
Don’t let the door hit you in your ass-ti-bula on the way out the door..
Have a nice day.. 😀
