from Cleveland:

"The law center called the program an 'Islamic proselytizing video.'

"'Teachers may not constitutionally show videotapes that violate the neutrality they must maintain toward religion or that engages in religious instruction,' said Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the law center.'Showing 'Muslims and America' violated those principles and the establishment clause of our Constitution. Under the guise of teaching the history of Islam to seventh graders, history teachers were proselytizing students to the Islamic faith.'"

Amen.
