“The American Middle-East Christian Association (AMECA) has learned of Royal Oak Intermediate School, Covina, California, teaching the Islamic religion to America’s young, naive, impressionable school children.” (Thanks to LGF.)
“In a letter sent home to parents, the teacher wrote, ‘During the month of Ramadan, Muslims refrain from food or drink during daylight hours.’ For EXTRA CREDIT, he asked parents’ OK for student participation by choosing ‘to fast for one, two or three days.'”
This is far from the only such instance. There are other such cases proceeding today.
The AMECA press release correctly observes: “America’s Christian children had better not even utter the name Jesus Christ in public schools without persecution and prosecution by the ‘separation of church and state’ zealots.
“AMECA will conduct a peaceful educational seminar in accordance with our First Amendment rights on the public sidewalk in front of ROYAL OAK INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL at 303 South Glendora Av in Covina, CA 91723 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. on MONDAY, NOV. 24.”
The press release concludes: “We will have a number of experts in Islam to share quotes from the Koran in both Arabic and English. We will provide an American civics lesson for Royal Oak students, to see our FIRST AMENDMENT exercised peacefully and profoundly: A RIGHT FOUND IN NO ISLAMIC CONTROLLED NATION ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.” Certainly this is true of nations in which Islamic law is enforced in its fullness: there is no idea of equality and freedom of religion, but for non-Muslims only the limited tolerance and humiliation of dhimmi status.
