Conner told Fox News his 14-year-old stepdaughter Jessica decided not to attend the trip. So her teachers instructed her to write a paper comparing and contrasting the Christian, Hindu and Islamic faiths. That’s when his daughter noticed something strange.
“There was one page on the sayings of Jesus, two-thirds of a page on the sayings of Gandhi, and five pages on Muhammed,” Conner said.
The section about Islam was titled,“Religious Tolerance in Islam,” according to the worksheets provided to Fox News.
The author wrote that the “Prophet of Islam was prepared to live in peace with the followers of other monotheistic religions, especially Judaism and Christianity.”
The author also disputed claims that Islam is a violent religion or that conquered nations were given a choice – Islam or death.
“There is no denying that Muslims in the Middle East and Asian conquered lands of other peoples but they did not impose their religion over them,” the author wrote.
The author also stated that minorities conquered by the Muslims were treated better than minorities living in the United States.
“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,” the author wrote.
Conner told Fox News his daughter declined to complete what she considered to be an unfair and unbalanced assignment.
“Because of a surplus in information on Muhammed, and a lack of complete and thorough information on Mahatma Gandhi and Jesus Christ, there is not enough true facts to properly complete a comparison and contrasting paper,” Jessica wrote on her paper.
Her parents warned her that she might be punished by her teachers for standing up for her beliefs – and she was. Jessica received a ‘zero’ for the assignment.
Conner and his wife met with school officials who refused to change their daughter’s grade or give her an assignment that was more balanced.
“They told us we were being hostile towards Islam,” Conner said.“It was a very confrontational meeting. Their attitude was,‘I can’t believe you would question our motives with your children.’”
Conner said he hopes the school board will take action against the teachers.
“Someone needs to be held accountable,” he said.“They are our children – not theirs.”
Oh, poor Tip. 400 years of white European styled Christianity shoved down the throats of African captives, and you're whining that the mooslims served kool- aid and cookies to a small class of white kids, and gave them a Koran that'll be tossed in the garbage by a parent before the kid gets 1 foot in the door at home. Wah,wah!

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.”

Daily Roll Call reported the students were taken to the Islamic Center of Nashville.

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.”

A Sumner County Schools spokesman declined to answer questions about specific religious activities the children may have engaged in, but he did send a statement acknowledging there was concern about the trip.

“Our district has reviewed the practice and decided to eliminate field trips to religious venues from this class, as it does not provide equal representation to all the religions studied in the course unit,” the statement read.“This decision was made due to the fact that equal representation in regards to field trips for all religions studied in the course is not feasible.”
Students go. They get a Koran. So what? They'll be we'll rounded citizens.

Look at you attempting to make yourself appear Godlike again. I thought you didn't believe in God? You sure seem to want people to worship you for your perceived "intelligence." No my mother wasn't stupid. The woman was born in the 1920s. I think your blindspots are much more difficult to comprehend than hers ever were. You're just a narcissistic ass.
Heh heh heh....narcissistic ass....THERE it is! Very good description. I don't understand how some people can be SO nasty, rude, vulgar, and hateful....hmmm. Maybe it's the lack of the Lord in their life?

No, actually, you insist on being my prey to amuse me. Let's try again. The SOURCE for practically ALL the "information" that you are basing your OPINION on is the FAMILY of a CHILD who got a BAD GRADE. That makes the information SUSPECT because they have a BIAS against the teacher and the class.
You also have overlooked that this class is in all likelihood an elective. If Festus didn't want his young'uns larnin about foreigners, he shouldn't have let her take the class.
Hahahahahahahahahahaha

Read carefully, freak. I said "white European Christianity" complete with pagan rituals of Halloween (druids, witches and demons) Easter (bunnies &eggs) Christmas (Santa Claus & flying deer). Thanks for being so observant, Willie.

"Governor, if I had foreseen the use those people designed to make of their victory, there would have been no surrender at Appomattox Courthouse; no sir, not by me. Had I foreseen these results of subjugation, I would have preferred to die at Appomattox with my brave men, my sword in my right hand..."

"We went into slavery a piece of property; we came out American citizens. We went into slavery pagans; we came out Christians. We went into slavery without a language; we came out speaking the proud Anglo-Saxon tongue. We went into slavery with slave chains clanking about our wrists; we came out with the American ballot in our hands."

Sorry DeShawn, I am an Eastern Christian. Most of the ancient Christian communities in Africa (such as the Copts and the Ethiopians, who adopted Christianity before Europe did), worship in MY rituals (or at least closely related) not yours.

If you've ever talked to the average Ethopian, they are aghast at the prospect of one of their children getting married to some African slave descendant and/or becoming their baby momma. Their culture is just like that of any other Eastern or Catholic Christian ... and they can't stand the indigenous pavement apes.

Of Course, I don't believe Tippy has ever hiked through the mountains of East Tennessee on a sunny Sunday morning and come across baptisms being performed in the creeks.

Don't presume to lecture me on Christianity in the South, damyankee.

An analogy to this discussion would be the teaching of WWII while omitting or diminishing the Holocaust.

As ever, logic eludes you.

Show me where any Christian church uses Santa, reindeer and the Easter Bunny in their Christmas and Easter practices.
Then show me the same for Halloween...keeping in mind that most Protestant churches utterly reject the very idea of it and that in Catholicism it is the eve of All Saints Day and nothing more.
You disappoint me more every day. That post was something I would have expected from Black Racist of Brooklyn.

No, the proper analogy would be providing a field trip for a natural sciences/biology class to the Nashville zoo, but not to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, because time and monetary constraints limit what the schools can provide as far as off campus educational opportunities in that particular subject matter.

Ever the victim, aren't you Tippy?
