Several Tulsa citizens are speaking up about a teacher workshop on the Muslim world. The workshop is called “The Arab world and Islam”.
Organizers say the goal is to give teachers information on the Muslim culture. But opponents of the class don’t want any part of it….
Opponents of the workshop met at a church Tuesday night. They voiced their opposition to what they’re calling the indoctrination of their children. A pastor, who’s also a former Muslim, spoke to the group. He says he wants the class stopped before it even starts.
Workshop organizers say the class explains the concepts of Islam, and then discusses Arab issues, like politics, natural resources and culture.
Some people at the meeting don’t want any of it taught to their kids. “They’ve made a big issue about making sure that Christianity and God is not talked about in school so I think it’s only right that we stand up and defend our children against being taught things from another religion.”
School officials say, of course, that they are only teaching about Islam, not teaching Islam. But that has already shown itself to be an exceedingly fine line.
