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

You forgot to mention that Texas is the only State in the Union where good old boys are encouraged to take their artillery up in helicopters and kill hogs from the air.

Then they come back five hours later and hunt for coyotes over the dead hogs using night-vision rifle scopes and infra-red laser illuminators.

Turrible! Jus' turrible! If I was from Yale or Harvard, I'd NEVER come here!

So, will school prayer to "allah" be instituted soon?

How about classroom admonitions that "allah" condemns homosexuality?

What do you Texans have to say about this? Those of you who always say “Don’t Mess with Texas” or “That would never happen in Texas”, or blah, blah, blah.

Allah is not a personal name for God. It’s just the word “God” in Arabic.

yasou’ al masih ibn allah is what Arab Christians call Jesus Christ ( the Messiah), the Son of God.

Now if the Texas schools start to make theological arguments, that’s when I’d start to object.

Texas is making the same mistakes California made with respect to illegal immigration.

Sanctuary cities:

Austin, Texas
Baytown, Texas
Brownsville, Texas
Channelview, Texas
Denton, Texas
Dallas, Texas
El Cenizo, Texas
Ft. Worth, Texas
Houston, Texas (1992)
Katy, Texas
Laredo, Texas
League City, Texas
Mcallen, Texas
Port Arthur, Texas
San Antonio, Texas

What is the status of Texas' anti sanctuary cities bill? I believe it died.

“They should not even think about showing up in Texas, it’s just awful.”

You forgot to mention the huge grasshoppers. I once had a layover in Dallas and went outside to get some air and stretch my legs. It was humid and hot and there were these giant, horrifying, orange-green grasshoppers everywhere! It was like a horror movie.

If you are bug-a-phobic, stay out of Texas.

We don’t have the California welfare state though. Of course it’s a problem, but I’d much rather have the illegals than the transplants from California who come here and vote Democrat. At least you can deport the illegals.

If the school tells students that the Catholic faith teaches that God sent his Son to die on the cross for our sins,

If? Not they do? Not likely. Big difference in "Do" and "If"

Parents were left out of the picture when schools began serving up these programs as Opt out, rather than Opt in.

Its all around the context it is being taught...Arabic-speakers of all Abrahamic faiths, including Christians and Jews, use the word "Allah" to mean "God".The Christian Arabs of today have no other word for 'God' than 'Allah'.(Even the Arabic-descended Maltese language of Malta, whose population is almost entirely Roman Catholic, uses Alla for 'God'.) Arab Christians for example use terms Allāh al-ʾab (الله الأب) meaning God the Father, Allāh al-ibn (الله الابن) mean God the Son, and Allāh ar-rūḥ al-quds (الله الروح القدس) meaning God the Holy Spirit.

The chances of that happening? None

Reality sucks. Texas will soon have a majority Hispanic population as will most of the border states and Aztlan will be established.

We can deny all we want but we have been invaded by the womb and we will not survive it.

Good observation by the way.

Every Texan knows that. We’re the only state that was its own Republic before joining the US, and the Texas flag is the only one that can be flown at the same height as the US flag.

So where's the ACLU and Freedom From Religion Foundation? Clearly these schools are violating the Establishment Clause, unless that clause only applies to Christianity.

Hawai'i can also fly its flag at the same height as the US flag, says this genetic Texan.

Awesome.

I really believe CS Lewis alluded to Allah being Tash, the demon that the people of Calormene worshiped in some of his Narnia series.

Just getting started

Thank you, stanne, but that disclaimer wasn't necessary. After all, you listed five examples and already overlooked The Alamo, Guy Clark, and Charles Hardin Holley.

I believe the conservatives have lost the majority on the state school board because it has liberal Republicans, such as Ratliff, and one or two others on it now. Many of the voters are too uninformed to know who is conservative and who is not when it comes to the state board. Democrats expect to rebound in TX in 2014 after a long hibernation.

Colofornian.....Mormons theology is whacky - but they’ve never killed 270 million people in their evil persuits.

(The Bible talks about a certain thing called "the second death." Now you might deem yourself as more authoritative than the Bible; or discount the Bible; but IF there are deceptive teachings on this planet that lead people down the pathway to hell...ya better believe that since Jesus said WIDE is the road that leads to destruction...and NARROW is the way that leads to life...it seems to me He is telling us that BILLIONS of people have headed--are headed--and will head for that destructive "second death"...And who are YOU to preach against that?)

Your comment is theologically whacky and makes no common sense. The "second death" is the eternal death that awaits those who have rejected Jesus the Son of God.

He will judge them sitting at the right hand of the Father and commit them to eternity away from Him. The road is indeed "wide" with those who travel that road and are lost. As for me and my house we will serve the Lord and believe fully in his inspired word the Holy Bible...sans "other books." shalom

PS. In case you didn't get it my reference to "270 million" are the murdered and beheaded innocent souls killed by islamic terrorists in the last 1400 years. God will judge them!

Good one

More prepping for the one-world religion — as if there wasn’t plenty of creeping “theology” that pushes same.

Oh, they are not so bad.

Mexican riverine cartel pirates

Pirates. Son of a gun.

Didn't think about that one but I betcha we are the only State in the lower 48 "whats got Pie-rats."

Adding pirates to the post.

Then they come back five hours later and hunt for coyotes over the dead hogs using night-vision rifle scopes and infra-red laser illuminators.

Air Assault... Air Mobile.

Oh yeah, most definitely YEAH!

Adding Air Mobile Operations to the post.

What with the fire ants, pirates and Air Mobile Operations (aka "hunting") the post is getting a bit long.

We're going nuclear on the fire ants most any time now. You'll want to get yourself some welding goggles, a hazmat suit, and a trenching tool, and start digging in and sandbagging a revetment.
