Why? That seems to be the biggest question about a state that has been at war on religion for a century suddenly falling in love with a cruel, brutal, ruthless and bloody religion. But to answer the question, one need to look no further than those very descriptors. Just a little perusal of history will reveal that such descriptors also fit quite well with governmental regimes throughout history. Statist love Islam because Islam is a statist religion, pure and simple. And the statist are going to do everything in their power to see to it that your child falls in love with a religion that gives them god-like power, because there’s nothing in this big old world that the statist loves more than power. The state, you see, hasn’t really had a century-long war on religion. It has had a century-long war on Christianity. And it has had a century-long war on Christianity because it has ultimately had a century-long war on God. And nowhere has that war been more overt than in the little innocent-looking schoolhouse down the street because while most parents might be in the dark about how to change the world, the state by no means is.
So we have this story from an opinion piece written by Tod Starnes:
A Virginia school district is defending a classroom assignment that required students to practice calligraphy by writing the Muslim statement of faith, “There is no god but Allah. Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”
Female students at Riverheads High School in Augusta County, Virginia, were also invited to wear Muslim clothing — a story first reported by The Schilling Show.
The school district convened a meeting on Dec. 11th to discuss the assignment with outraged parents.
“Neither these lessons, nor any other lesson in the world geography course, are an attempt at indoctrination to Islam or any other religion, or a request for students to renounce their own faith or profess any belief,” the district said in a statement provided to Fox News.
So one complaint is all it takes to shut down anything that might paint Jesus in a positive light. And here we have the school district holding meetings in which they defend the religion that they would just as soon your child adopt because it is one religion that does not distinguish between the state and god.
This does not bode well for your state-indoctrinated children. I can remember when districts held meetings, many years ago, to defend their take on homosexuality. If there’s one thing I’ve learned through the years it’s this: once the district holds a meeting about some “controversy”, it’s over. Though you might feel like the meetings are held to give you a voice, they are not. They are held to make you feel like you have a voice, and to inform you of what they’re going to do to your children, your “voice” be damned.
