One of the religious liberty cases the Supreme Court Justices won't be hearing this term is the issue of Maryland High School student Caleigh Wood, who refused to take part in a school assignment to write the Islamic conversion prayer that states
there is no god but Allah, because she believed it directly contradicted her Christian faith. The High Court denied a petition filed on behalf of the 11th grader, angering one conservative commentator who saw it as caving in to the indoctrination in schools and on college campuses. This is not just a violation of the First Amendment but an ongoing, albeit subtle, diffusion of Islam in our Western society," the Rev. Mario Alex Protello wrote. Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of Thomas More Law Center, which filed the petition on Woods behalf said, The schools are promoting Islam over Christianity or any other religion, and you have a double standard, which we think is a violation of the establishment clause. Thompson also said in the firms press release, Under the pretext of teaching history or social studies, public schools across America are promoting the religion of Islam in ways that would never be tolerated for Christianity or any other religion. Thompson said that on top of getting an F in the class, Wood was also made to watch a pro-Islam PowerPoint presentation that denigrated her religion and basically said that Christians are not as faithful as Muslims. So we strongly believed that this was a violation.

Just as we need a 90% majority in the House and Senate to get anything sane, so too is the need to replace almost every Federal judge. And since “conservative” judges fall prostrate before precedent, the situation is likely un-fixable until judges from outside the maoist nexus of Ivy League judges is vanquished..
Why not, “See Aisha run. Run, Aisha, Run!”
Why the Shahada, the conversion prayer??
I wouldn’t, no way. Never.
But don’t you dare recite the Lord’s prayer at a football game!
Make a Muslim kid recite the Rosary and see what happens.
The left instinctively sides with evil.
I’d yank my id out of that school so fast!
How did there vote go down on the decision to hear the case?
Would there have been the same sort of thing happening in schools after Pearl Harbor?
that’s why there’s a saying “liberals love criminals”..
Piss on them and write “Separation of Chirch and States asshole! Let you Allah suck on that!
The best answer here is to simply refuse to do it, and take the “zero” for the assignment.
As tempting as it is to take this stuff to court, it’s pretty much a loser every time. The idea that there is some sort of salvation in court is the wrong tactic. Simply refusing to comply, defend your position that I will never say that there is “no god but allah” who is IMHO = Satan.
islam is the enemy and needs to be iradicated.
Liberals despise Christians and have somehow adopted the misplace belief of “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” with islam. The liberals will be tragically shown the error of their ways if islam ever gets a majority in this country. LGBT (E-I-E-I-O) will cease to exist as will feminism. The punishment will be death. Forced an uber-liberal to google “Chop Chop Square”, the facial expression after she viewed what islam is all about was golden.
Now that is a true constitutional case, a clear cut 1st amendment issue. This case should have been heard.
The Supreme Court does at most 60 cases a year. This is why the lower courts are even more important. The Supreme Court has a full docket already. This case should have been presented faster if they really wanted the Supreme Court to hear it. Sounds like lazy judges who dont have their acts together.
The newest US stance for schools, courts and the Democats: Christianity NO Islam YES
Bravo to this 11th grader for standing up for her faith...It is spiritual warfar and our side will always be attacked....Jesus won the battle for our souls, but Satan is fighting for the land rights....
Always such cowards when it comes to Islam.
