I’ve written about clock-boy before. But this is not about him. It’s about the love affair that the institution has with Islam, and the hatred it has for Christianity. When the subject of Christianity comes up you will notice all of a sudden that the constitution is very specific. It says right in there that you can’t, in any way, shape, fashion or form have anything whatsoever to do, under any circumstances, so help me God, with religion. It says that very thing right there in your constitution… somewhere. And I’m sure you can understand the position the poor institution finds itself in.
But the fact that that’s a big fat lie notwithstanding, there’s a big problem with the institution taking such a stand, that problem being that they only mean it when they want to mean it, and discard it when they want to discard it, and in the end your child loses.
So we have this from Breitbart:
Of course, the schoolhouse is ground zero when it comes to molding the future, so these sorts of events are constant in the schoolhouse. But I’m interested in the words of another Muslim student in this red-state school. Her name is Jamil, and she sent an email to the principle praising her school for not treating Islam the same way it treats Christianity. Well, that’s not exactly what she said, but read this and judge for yourself if it isn’t true:
Jamali describes the opposite picture, [from the one clock-boy is trying to paint] calling “Mac” the place that changed her life, where she felt “respected as a Muslim.” She dubbed Irving ISD a place “that taught pride, accommodated Muslim prayer and dietary needs” and where “students of my religious community, including me, (are granted) two weeks every year to attend a religious ceremony.” Jamali wrote they allowed her to take “a whole month of school off and go for Haj.”
It seems that the school doesn’t really mean what it says about what it says the constitution says, except when it does mean what it says about what the constitution doesn’t really say. If that sounds confusing to you it ought to, because it’s as confused of a saying as your child will be as a thinker when the state’s done with her. But it doesn’ t have to be that way. Always remember that when the yellow monster gobles your child up in the morning.
