It appears to me that practicing Islam is against the law. We should put a stop to the spread of Islam.

Unless we can somehow show that Islam not a religion, we have to tolerate it (legally at least) like any other valid religion. The only way to defend ourselves against it is to not allow it to become favored over other religions in our laws and courts.

How can it be considered anything other than a religion? It is not a 'culture' by any means at all. Arabs have a culture, Iranians a different one, Indonesians a different one yet. Islam is the religion of the majority of those people.

And because it is a religion, it should be absolutely, 100% forbidden to force students to make prayers to its lower case gee od.

From the article:" Based on the above, parents of some of the students sued, claiming that the public schools were unconstitutionally promoting religion, in violation of the First Amendment.

The court disagreed, however, ruling that the state was teaching another "culture."

Well there you have it. according to the the 9th circuit court Islam is not a religion. It is a "culture".

:)Easy Does It:)
