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!p2
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.”
Dixie just ain't what she used to be, huh? Ole general Lee just did a somersault in his grave.
