The Islamization of America’s public schools continues to take place with breathless speed, but in the few districts where awakened parents push back, Islam is forced to recoil into a constitutional place that is at least equal with other religions.
Where parents are asleep, Islam will simply take over and eventually turn that school into a virtual madrassa, says one constitutional scholar. In rare cases where parents are alerted to the Islamic teachings going on in their chidlren’s schools and take action, the school system typically backs off rather than invite expensive litigation.
A recent case in the state of Washington hightlights this reality.
Unpacking, exposing and dismantling the pro-Islamic Ramadan practices within the Northside School District started with a savvy and courageous teacher.
If conservatives are paying attention they will note that the day may soon come when corporate America, if it is willing to bring all of its monetary muscle to bear, could effectively turn every state into a radical blue state in the mold of California and New York.
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.
A big legal battle is heating up over a proposed mega-mosque in Sterling Heights, Michigan, and regardless of the outcome longtime residents say some in this city’s divided immigrant community are going to feel slighted.
On one side is the mayor, Michael C. Taylor, fighting for the Muslims and their right to build a massive mosque right smack dab in the middle of the nation’s largest Chaldean Christian refugee community.
On the other side are the Christian refugees. They say they feel like their rights are once again being seen as second fiddle to the Muslims, just as they were back home in Iraq.
The American Islamic Community Center wants to build a 20,500-square-foot mosque on 4.3 acres along 15 Mile Road in Sterling Heights, a suburb north of Detroit. This is a residential area dotted by hundreds of modest homes inhabited by Christians who fled Iraq and other countries where Muslims persecute followers of Christ.
They came to Sterling Heights in search of refuge. Now some are wondering if that was a mistake.
As you all know by now, our lives were turned upside down a few weeks ago when doctors told us that my wife Marty’s breast cancer had returned and this time there was no treatment option other than the one every woman fears, mastectomy.
They will also take a lymph node to determine if the cancer has spread. The devastating news was compounded by the fact that, as independent freelance writers, the only health insurance we can afford is a bare-bones policy with a high deductible. Our portion of the biopsy and surgery alone was estimated at $7,000 and the hospital requested at least one-third of that up front before the surgery on May 7.
A feeling of desperation and helplessness settled over us. I did the only thing I knew to do. I put out an appeal to you, my readers, on this website. You can read it here.
