Texas teaching 'Allah is the Almighty God'
WorldNetDaily ^ | December 13, 2012 | John Griffing

Posted on 12/13/2012 7:46:25 PM PST by wesagain

In the 70 percent of Texas public schools where a private curriculum has been installed, students are learning the “fact” that “Allah is the Almighty God,” charge critics of a new online curriculum that already is facing condemnation for its secrecy and restrictions on oversight.

The program, called CSCOPE, is a private venture operating under the umbrella of the Texas Education Service Center Curriculum Collaborative, whose incorporation documents state its independence from the State Board of Education of the Texas Education Agency.

Other reports previously have raised alarm over the curriculum’s depiction of the Boston Tea Party as a terrorist act on par with the 9/11 attack.

According to documentation that has leaked out, the program describes the Boston Tea Party this way: “A local militia, believed to be a terrorist organization, attacked the property of private citizens today at our nation’s busiest port. Although no one was injured in the attack, a large quantity of merchandise, considered to be valuable to its owners and loathsome to the perpetrators, was destroyed. The terrorists, dressed in disguise and apparently intoxicated, were able to escape

What the heck is going on in Texas? Been reading a lot lately about this bovine scatology going on in Texas schools.

According to excerpts, under the heading, “Who Is Allah?,” students are told:

“Allah is the Almighty God.”

“Allah alone is the Creator. He alone deserves our devout love and worship.”

Muhammad is described as having become “disillusioned with the corruption in the city and the growing gap between the urban dwellers and the Bedouins (nomadic herders).”

But there is no mention of his documented sex activities with a child or his penchant for beheading entire indigenous people groups.

“What the heck is going on in Texas?”

We've been too darn successful and it has attracted too darn many pests for other parts of the country!

They come down here (mainly from the northeast and California) and immediately want to bring their “progressive” ideas with them. And unfortunately, too many of us have become complacent, thinking our way of life was safe. I hope we wake up soon or we'll be as messed up as lots of the rest of the country.

Oh really?

For the ninth consecutive election, every single elected state office holder from US Senator and Governor down to Agriculture and Railroad Commissioner has been a Republican. We've gone Republican every Presidential election since 1980, and we can't keep the Californians and the Yankees out as they are fleeing here like geese. Even those libertarian venture capitalists who are starting their own colony down in Belize are copying Texas business law as their model.

I challenge anyone else to name some place better.

Correction, it's Honduras, not Belize:

The laws in the city will be separate from those in the rest of Honduras. Strong said that the default law that will be enforced in the city will actually be based on Texas state law, which has relatively few regulations.

“It will be Texas law with more freedom of contract. Texas scores well on state economic freedom rankings,” he explained.

This idea that Texas is the great hope is a bit over blown I believe. They’ve got some serious problems too.



You'r right, in fact, Texas is awful. Too hot in the summer, day after day of 100+ and you will freeze during the winter cold fronts. It is so cold it knocks out the power plants that provide the heating.

In the early part of dang near ever summer we get these huge thunderstorms that have so much lightening it is like artillery barrages and dump hailstone the size of tennis balls. My truck just got busted up by the latest one here in Dallas back in June. The damage was so widespread it took two and a half weeks just to get to an estimator. I didn't get into a body shop till October. They were all full.

We got killer bees, anthrax in everything from the vegetable gardens to the deer, tornadoes, floods and gigantic wildfires that burn down entire counties.

There are so many rattlesnakes that Texas doesn't require a hunting license to just kill`em and I think it is only ten bucks for the massive rattlesnake hunts they have every year. It is still ok to stomp them to death when they come up in your front yard.

The ones going to those snake hunts are something else. Here in Texas it is classified as "recreation." No joke. No traps allowed, gotta use your hands and a stick.

Also there are coral snakes and 10 kinds of pit vipers, including the copperhead, cottonmouth plus eight rattlesnake species. Piranha in some lakes too. There are World record alligators in the rivers as well. It makes for some interesting fishing trips.

Then there are the feral hogs all over the place. No season. No limit. Standard hunting license and you are good to go after the 300 pounders. Just watch out for the packs of coyotes that run wild day and night.

Mountain lions are pretty much everywhere, including the suburbs here in Dallas. They had to shoot one in downtown El Paso last year. About five years ago one was spotted in a downtown Dallas parking garage! Damn things will hop your backyard fence and chow down on your dogs in a blink of an eye.

Then there are the Texans themselves. Wow! The only folks I know that call their AR-15's "pellet guns." Dallas county has so many people doing concealed carry I don't even have to anymore. Darned if they are not just everywhere. And some are toting iron that makes a .45 look like a 22.

Everywhere you go the people are almost all Republicans or conservatives OR TEA Party! They actually believe that smaller and smaller government is a good thing. It is difficult to find any correctly CSCOPE educated and enlightened people to talk about global warming, renewable green energy or diversity/inclusiveness!

Any if you want to relax for a year or two and write a book or whatever, forget it! You can’t stay on unemployment for as long as you like because jobs are everywhere. Those drilling and pipeline companies working the shale (dirty) oil boom going on in central Texas are hiring everybody in sight.

Not only all that, they actually allow the operation of huge refineries all over the State and offshore drilling and oil production too! Because the refineries are right there you can't find gasoline properly priced above $3.20 a gallon ANYWHERE.

They are SO BACKWARDS they have not even passed a State income tax and do not require union labor!

Yea, CSCOPE educated and enlightened people would not like it here. They should not even think about showing up in Texas, it's just awful.

:-)

I first saw this Boston Tea Party story here on FR back during the 1990's while Clinton was president. We had a lot of good laughs about it because it was intended as a spoof, based on the politics at the gun control politics at the time.

I'm sure old-time Freepers remember it. I'm not sure if the Islam crowd was duped by this today or if WND is the one duped.

If you read the whole thing, it looks like Attorney General Greg Abbott is about to kick Thomas Ratliff (who is promoting this) off the state board. I'm surprised a person like him is on the board as that board is normally very conservative. I suppose one idiot can slip through.

This material about Islam is separate from text books. Our text book elected members have always been strong Christians and that is reflected in the scrutiny they give text books.

If this material is left up to school boards to use or not, conservative counties will dump it.

More Islam creep

More WND Sensationalism.

OK, CSCOPE is used by 70% of the districts. Chalk one up for meaningless facts.

CSCOPE is a curriculum management system. Into this system, a school system will insert various curriculum items to meet their state standards, in Texas that would be TEKs. CSCOPE them provides tools to propagate the curriculum, test to it, and help to make a consistent experience throughout the system.

The tea party claim is false, with a grain of truth. First, it wasn't a new curriculum item within CSCOPE. Second, it was an optional item, not part of a mandatory curriculum. Note though how they can mention some optional curriculum used by a few schools, and because CSCOPE is used by 70%, they give you the impression that 70% of the schools are currently teaching this.

"CSCOPE is a curriculum support system that is fully aligned to the TEKS and designed to provide a common language, process and structure for curriculum development. Groups of ESC professionals and content specialists have collaboratively clarified the TEKS so that instructional delivery is more focused to ensure success for all students."

If there is an odd item in the curriculum, the focus should be on TEKS, which drives the curriculum.

Now, if you dig into the specific charge about Allah, you find it is based on a powerpoint that supposedly is from the curriculum. For this post, I won't deal with whether the powerpoint is actually used.

The powerpoint is a section teaching about Islam. So, in the powerpoint, you learn what Islam teaches. Since Islam teaches that Allah is God, that is what the powerpoint tells you Islam teaches.

If the school tells students that the Catholic faith teaches that God sent his Son to die on the cross for our sins, that would not mean that the schools are telling our kids they need to accept Christ as Savior.

Here is a link to one site's supposed powerpoint of the curriculum on Islam. It makes no value judgments on whether Islam is true or not, it tells you what Islam teaches: Islam

Those things are nasty. My wife and I were vacationing in Galveston, and we played golf one day. I didn’t know about fire ants, and as I often do, I hit my ball off the fairway and into some bush. I had to push into the bush to hit the ball, so I did, backing up against a mound of dirt.

Well, that mound of dirt was of course a fire ant hill. Needless to say, I did not hit my ball. I did spray a good deal of bug repellant on my legs. And nursed quite a few bites. Ouch.

What the heck is going on in Texas? Been reading a lot lately about this bovine scatology going on in Texas schools.

Mel and Norma Gabler started attending meetings of the state school board in the 70's, when the board met to consider new textbooks for adoption, showing up with copies of the proposed texts all marked up with errors and left-wing propaganda all highlighted. The Gablers would then read chapter and verse back to the board (which is elective not appointive in Texas) with scathing denunciations of Marxist or atheist language, claims, agitprop, and so on. They'd stir the pot, and the board would, in the glare of publicity, refuse to adopt the NEA's favorite Marxist offerings. Eventually publishers got the word, which stirred the ire of the Left.

Norman Lear was a longtime Hollywood agitator who'd rolled left-wing "lessons" and "teachable moments" into his various programs. With co-producer Bud Yorkin (a Tennessee liberal), he introduced All in the Family and its laughingstock lower-class conservative mouth-breather, "Archie Bunker", portrayed by hardcore liberal actor Carrol O'Connor, and his well-meaning but uneducated wife "Edith" (Jean Stapleton) to the teachable American public in the early 70's. The show was all about "educating" the irascible troglodyte "Archie": the adult children, played by Carl Reiner and Sally Struthers, were Yorkin and Lear's tools, as they constantly Beheld with Horror and Reproved with Middle-Class Arched Eyebrows their mouth-breathing, cliche'-spewing, punching-bag father. The basic plotline was "Father Knows Least" and was stock sitcom gold, following such tour de force daddy-bashing hit series as Make Room for Daddy (Danny Thomas and his brat Marlo the archfeminist), The Life of Riley, and The Honeymooners (Jackie Gleason, Audrey Meadows, Art Carney).

Norm Lear saw what was going on in Texas and shortly launched his People for the American Way to counter Mel and Norma Gabler and enable left-wing, NEA-approved textbook adoptions by the Texas board, who were gumming up the liberal maleducation works. Since then, the voters of Texas have repeatedly put numbers of social conservatives on the board, and RiNO governors, including George W. Bush, have appointed "good-government" RiNO businessmen to the boared whenever a vacancy appeared and run RiNO's against sitting conservative members with large fluxes of political money (violating, of course, the 11th Commandment, which they'd promulgated and frequently upheld as holy text, to dissuade conservatives from doing the same thing to their candidates).

More recently, RiNOs and liberals have combined to try to remove the textbook-approval power from the Texas school board, but I don't know how those initiatives have fared at the constitutional-amendment polls. I offer the background and bare bones so other, more up-to-date Texas FReepers can fill us in, whether these initiatives have succeeded in neutering the Texas school-defense conservatives.

Rick wanted to create a new appointive board.

Many Texas Freepers seem to believe that Texas is somehow exempt from the socialism blitz. Check out your public schools, look at what your public libraries are offering, listen to your politicians. The biggest tragedy in Texas is that so many believe they are not being set up for socialism. Guess again.

Other reports previously have raised alarm over the curriculum’s depiction of the Boston Tea Party as a terrorist act on par with the 9/11 attack.

Well... if you're a statist then that's absolutely true; statism is the opposite idea of those described in the Declaration of Independence -- therefore there are no rights except the ones the state bestows/allows and there is thus no obligation to the people, not for the people to revolt in any circumstance. (Even ancient China, with its "Mandate of Heaven" recognized that the government could lose that mandate... our current drive toward statism is nothing less than the drive to place all our fellow citizens under absolute despotism.)

I live in lefty Austin and the so-called progressives are infiltrating every government office while establishing several ‘non-profits’ directed at ‘aiding the children’.

These lefties are targeting the recent wave of illegals in order to build a future democrat voter base.

Surprisingly, not all of these lefties are California transplants or relocated northerners but born and bred Texans.

When you become as successful as Texan there will be some folks who suffer from guilt either from race or from ‘feeling’ to wealthy and ‘wanting to give back to society’.

Do not shun Austin like so many of you conservative Texans do, but infiltrate and attack this cancer before it spreads elsewhere.

I can fight in Austin on my own,folks!

Thanks for the ping, and thanks for providing a short background and history lesson for the non-Texans and those unaware of the way we do things here.

From time-to-time, we have to clean house (politically). Looks like it’s about time to do some ‘spring cleaning’, LOL.

I really, really want our current effort at dumping Straus as Speaker of the House to succeed. Gotta get rid of the RINOs and libs in Texas politics.

Like I said - time to clean house.

This idea that Texas is the great hope is a bit over blown I belive. They’ve got some serious problems too.


I sadly might have to agree. As a 7th generation Texas who loves the state dearly, I know that there are absolute Floods of immigrants from Mexico, South America, Asia, Arab, India and also as mentioned in a post above, many, many transplants from NE and California. While small towns and some suburbs might still have their heads on straight, the bigger cities and many suburbs are being inundated (most people I know who live in my suburb, if they grew up in Texas are pretty conservative still, but when half your suburb is either foreign or from liberal states, the flavor of things changes. Where I live has changed drastically in just the past 10 -15 years. I don’t mind some immigration but SLOWLY with specific plans that immigrants will take on the values and culture of our country, rather than coming in with the purpose of changing our country to the place they came from. It is really, really sad.

I think the only way to stop the flood is to of course crack down on illegal immigration, but also STOP the massive flood tide of legal immigration and send many of them back home. Also, cut off the welfare and medicaid candy fountain that attracts so many.

The chances of that happening? None

Approximately a year ago there was this new private school being touted in the Odessa, Midland, Texas (west Texas).

The hype was superior teaching in mathematics, and sciences. It had nothing about it that said Islamic. Except ... come to find out the organization offering this school were Islamic based. Very under the table. Seems like I remember it being lower cost than most. The local 24 hour a day ‘God’s learning Channel’ began to expose the truth regarding this private school. I have no children in school so I do not know if it is still in existence or not. Haven’t heard or seen any thing regarding it.

We have noticed there is sharia law in America honored by judges. STUPID! It is not American law, and has no power or right to be here.

God help America, remove evil. We want nothing to do with Islamic law, suppression of all women, or the right to kill family for dishonoring their belief.

Because beady-eyed low-profile jihadists are pushing it.

Don't worry, we'll sic Abe Foxman and the humanist-Communist secularized Jews at B'Nai B'rith and the ACLU on them.
