School Takes Kids to Mosque, Gives them Copies of Koran
http://townhall.com ^ | September 17, 2013 | Todd Starnes

Posted on 09/18/2013 4:22:08 PM PDT by lowbridge

A Tennessee high school has decided to revise its field trip policy after a group of freshmen were taken to an Islamic mosque where they were given copies of the Koran and while a student who opted out of the trip was given a worksheet that alleged Muslims treated their conquered people better than the United States treated minorities.

The students were in an honors world studies class at Hendersonville High School and the field trips to the mosque as well as a Hindu temple were part of a three-week course on world religions.

But some parents objected to the trips and wondered why the school would tour a mosque but not a Christian church or a Jewish synagogue.

“If you can’t go to all five, why are you going to any?” asked parent Mike Conner. “We sent the principal an email and voiced our concerns. She sent back a reply and told us they could not afford to go to all five.”

Children were given punch and cookies at the mosque where they listened to readings from the Koran, Conner said. They were also given copies of the Islamic holy book – which some students took and others declined.

During their visit to the Hindu temple, students engaged in meditation.

“Our kids are being indoctrinated and this is being shoved in their face,” Conner told Fox News. “It tells me they are pushing other religions and they want Christianity to take a back seat. They want our children to be tolerant of everything except Christianity.”

Were the boys issued suicide belts and the girls issued burqas?

There was a post here last week about Terry Jones (I believe that is his name) trying to burn hundreds of copies of the Koran. I criticized him for giving koran publishers money, and presumably profits, for this exercise.
Obviously a koran passed out for free from a mosque is prime kindling material. Hopefully the school kids used it appropriately (your suggestion works also).

These trips and related events are happening in conservative states. WHY?

Parents need to find out who is behind these activities and get heads to roll.

... those that survived conversion by the sord were given dhimini status and were levied a special tax. The women were still treated as whores. Blacks were treated as subhuman slaves........

someone needs a reality check.

Okay, time to take the kids to each and every other church in the area.

Not sure how much studying they will get done with this year because it could take a while...

Of course this occurred right after the kids were taken to a Christian church and given a Bible.

“If we were to compare the attitude of the Muslim rulers towards the minorities living under their rule during the nineteenth century – with the attitude of the Europeans and the Americans towards their minorities, I dare to say that the record of the Muslims would be better,”

Except for that whole sawing off heads thing.

Well, and that machine-gunning people in church thing. Other than that, its great.

OK, there's the raping Christian girls thing. But, again, other than that, its great.

The administrators who approved this indoctrination should be fired along with any teachers or aides who participated. FIRED.

It is important to be unhappy about this. I don’t know why anyone would be surprised though.

I would have taken as many as they would let me have and done wonderful and creative things with them.

Same here, like taking them off my sons, stuffing them in a couple pillow sacks and beating the ever loving shit out of some school administrators with them. (this of course would be done AFTER we put them to the charmin test).

The left loves this backward, violent ideology because it wants to eliminate Christianity and Judaism, and replace our government with a jihadi-based totalitarian system.

Agreed. In the age of the Internet I doubt Sears prints catalogues any more.

Tell your Kids you want them to have the Arabic versions if this happens. You can then mistreat those Korans to your hearts delight knowing you have the version that is going to maximize on the richly deserved disrespect you are about to engage in! The kids will LOVE the fun as you tell them why you destroying those vile things!

Indeed - your average sheeperal would have a problem with the Church/Bible scenario and no problem with the Mosque/Koran scenario,

and would, at the same time, not be able to explain their hypocrisy and defend it at the same time.

First part, yes, second part, probably not.

They haven’t thought beyond eliminating Christianity.
