Who are the Islamo-faciests making the death threats?

Strap one on and tell them to “make my day”.

Too bad he wasn’t closer to Colorado Springs. I know a few people there who would be most happy to assist the young man in dealing with these threats... with EXTREME prejudice!

Ping to the keepers of ping lists.

I guess he’ll have to homeschool the remainder of his senior year. God knows what this will do to his college plans.

Does anyone think the school would “defend its decision” to have the chorus sing a song in praise of the Christian G-d if there were complaints from a muslim student about being made to sing those praises?

What the h*ll has happened to this country?

Muslims attacked us on 9-11, and ever since then we are expected to praise Islam and tiptoe around Muslims’ sensibilities, of course with libs leading the way. I just can't believe this chain of events. Attack our country, and in doing do commandeer the status of uber-protected.

If a Muslim student had complained about Christian songs, they would have terminated the idea on the spot.

Grand Junction High School is a public high school. Why are they even singing a “religious song”, hmmm?

(I already know the answer, btw, I’m just saying, y’know?)

As a rule of thumb, if you are going to say anything in public that will get Muslims angry with you in particular, that is fine, but you have to expect that they will behave in an aggressive and possibly violent manner to you.

So take appropriate measures to defend yourself. This includes talking to the police to let them know the situation and ask their advice. And you can even ask your telephone provider to keep a listing of numbers used to call your phone.

Death threats for refusing to adhere to the Religion of Peace? Gee, those liberals are so tolerant.

Given what public schools offer, this kid is better off not going back.

“God knows what this will do to his college plans”

Probably nothing if they handle it properly. Homeschooling does not make it harder to get into college. My son was accepted to all 3 universities he applied for.

If that was a Christian song they would have put all the teachers and administrators in jail...and sent the kids off for re-education in a nice summer camp.

My homeschooled daughter was accepted into all the schools she applied to as well.

But she didn't have nationwide exposure on a subject that would have Muslims on campus wanting to try to kill her, which was the actual thing I was worried about for him.

I believe that for a strict Muslim singing a song to allah would in itself be blasphemous.

Public school choirs all over America are still singing religious songs. My daughter’s last concert included at least 5 religious songs. They’re chosen for their style and beauty, not for their message. This isn’t a violation of any court ruling.

Your friends make me want to move back to Colorado Springs. I imagine at some point, The Springs will be the last territory of Christianity.

But I am confused, did this kid quit the choir, or the school ?

More evidence to support what you knew instinctively:

Obama may have made the mistake of making his move to sharia a little too quickly. Between the dhimmi tax in Obamacare (basically, since it forces Christians to violate their own religion and imposes a fee for Christians that Muslims don’t have to pay), the food police telling a little girl in NC(?) that she couldn’t have the cheese and turkey sandwich, chips, banana, and apple juice that her Mom put in her lunch, and now the Islamist moves in CO followed by death threats to a high school boy who quit the choir rather than violate his own belief system.... I’m hoping people will wake up to where this is all headed.

The links I gave give some background as to where all this has come FROM. Serious charges, I know, but I believe the evidence supports what I’m saying.

The kid quit the choir because he didn’t want to sing that song. He wanted them to change it; they refused so he quit. Now he’s getting death threats to the point that his family doesn’t believe he can be safe in a public school.

That’s a problem, wouldn’t you say?

Don’t forget that same source of wisdom identified Islam as a religion of peace.

Really? Wow, I didn’t know that. At my niece’s “Winter Celebration” or whatever they call it (can’t have a Christmas special anymore), there were zero religious-themed songs. I just assumed that it was a public school thing.

Thanks for the info! :-)

Kinda like how after AIDS came on the scene, the libs worried about a gay backlash. Now, you are a bigot if you don't support gay marriage.

So public schools can't have prayer, can't sing Christmas carols or have plays about Jesus' birth, and have to call the Christmas vacation "winter recess", and so on. But they can sing songs glorifying Allah and then the one kid who has guts gets death threats? When is the pro-Muslim insanity going to end?
