Green Room

Students praying in school: bad. Students being taught to pray to Allah on field trips: good.

Oh yeah, didn’t you hear? Separation of church and state only applies to Christianity.

What the **** is this?!

Seriously?! LORD FORBID kids be allowed to pray of their own volition in school, but damn, we sure can let them bow to Allah!!!

The damage is already done. Some kids took the bait for the rop type at the mosque(boys only, gals don’t count). One inch at a time, one yard at a time, one mile at a time for the rop type here in our nation with the help of the taxpayers money at the schools! I am so thankful I don’t have kids in school now. The parents have almost zero say what is going on with their kids. Field trips, texbooks, etc. these rop type are taking over. WE HAVE got to get a gip on this asap!

The left-wing will use anything to destroy the core of America. The left-wing thinks Islam is just another weapon to use against America.

“During our trip we will get a chance to hear from Islam from members of the Cultural Center…” Perhaps this school system might find it better to invest students’ time in English grammar, because it doesn’t look like the administrators are too proficient.

As for going to learn about the architecture, this mosque is nothing more than a bland, modern, block building — with a minaret. Any lesson built around the architecture of the building would by necessity involve more Islamic propaganda as they describe the use of the minaret to call Muslims to prayer, the orientation of certain rooms toward Mecca, the foot baths, etc.

I certainly hope they also took the kids to a Catholic cathedral.

There are also architectural requirements for those buildings. Such as having to be built with the altar facing east.

But yeah…. who am I kidding?

The schools are teaching them younger and younger about sex and then provide an abortion when necessary without notifying parents. Students can’t pray on school grounds to their God but will be taken to a mosque. Will these students hear about the mutilation of women and their stoning to death called for by Islam? Were the girls in this class told that women aren’t allowed to drive and must wear a veil if they leave the house. Parents in this school district need to clean house.

It’s Wellesley–you should know that it’s about as far left as you can get. The parents in this town would heartily approve.

If the action aids the Leftists in destroying the Republic, you know they’re 100% in favor of it. “Kissmygrits” also makes a noteworthy point, women suffer greatly under Islam, just the young woman who recently appeared on the cover of Time magazine. I often wonder if the Lesbian Leftist ever stop to ask themselves how well they’ll fare as Dhimmis.

Everybody calm down. Clearly this is just part of “Character Ed” (yes, that’s real) — equipping kids for the future.

It really should be mandatory for all children to have to go to a synagogue, a Catholic church, a Protestant church (based on numbers, it should really be TWO Protestant churches, one mainline and one independent/evangelical/Anglican traditional, etc), and a Buddhist temple. Oh, and a mosque.

Participate in a service and/or ritual at each one. Discuss the positive contributions of each religion and its practitioners to mankind. Recite from memory the tenets of each faith. Investigate how members of each faith have been persecuted or discriminated against.

And read from textbooks written exactly as each faith would have them written, to reflect its view of history.

It’s only fair.

J.E. Dyer on September 18, 2010 at 2:40 PM

I’m speechless, and truly saddened by this.

I’m not against Islam, but I’m pretty sure any muslim child would not be allowed to go on a field trip to a synagogue, or church of the Christian faith.

What happened to everyone is equal???

capejasmine on September 18, 2010 at 3:33 PM

J.E.Dyer: Er… somewhat of a side point, but what do you consider a ‘mainline’ Protestant churche? I would have thought the Anglican church would be part of it? I sort of understand that your differentiation was to High Anglicanism, but certainly Anglicans and Lutherans are ‘mainstream Protestantism’ when compared to, say, southern Baptists?

(Not casting aspersions on any particular form of Protestantism… just their ‘mainstreamness’.)

Oh, and… how many history textbooks do you want people to read? The very fact that the United States was founded, overwhelmingly, by Puritans rather means that you would need several books just to recount American history.

But yes, your ideas would be more fair.

Scott H on September 18, 2010 at 5:54 PM

As sorry as an excuse for a field trip that this is, consider the source. Massachusetts, a state that has a long history of liberalism. So what’s new? Certainly wouldn’t surprise me if they have a field trip for boys to a men’s bathhouse, girls to an abortion clinic. Or all the kid’s to a bar during a major league sporting event.

No, don’t dive into me. I simply read/view the news, and have for many years. It builds up over time.

those parents that gave permission for this trip should be pilloried.
