Parents from New Jersey were filled with anger when they found out their children were forced to participate in social studies lessons on Islam.
Fox News reported that two moms Libby Hilsenrath and Nancy Gayer said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that they stated their concern about the lessons at Chatham Middle School.
What outraged the moms was that children learned only about Islam, like Islam is the only religion. Moreover, children were instructed to describe the five pillars of Islam were taught there is “no God but Allah” and that “Mohammed is the messenger.”
Here is what one of the moms stated,
“I think it crosses the line, [teaching] one religion and not others,” Hilsenrath said, asking whether it would be appropriate to therefore recite that Jesus Christ is “the way, the truth and the light” and that “no one comes to God but through me.”
The moms also said that this wasn’t the first time the school did something like this. Gayer recalled a situation in which her son inserted a short Bible quote in a slideshow and wanted to present that slideshow in front of the class. However, the teacher pulled her son aside, told him that such mentions are only allowed in “Sunday Schools.”
I totally stand behind these moms folks. I hope that they will pursue this matter right to the end.
Thank you for reading.
