It is truly frightening that these christianist nut jobs have this much influence over the public schools. If you recall, the Texas GOP platform clearly states that "America Is A Christian Nation".

I was educrate in New York State prublic got out of public school in 1970 at the age of 20. I was taught about Islam in 10th grade world history class along with other major religion. Religions influence so much of man culture and history so not to treach in world history class about the influence of all the major religions will make it hard to understrand other cultures will make it hard for than texasian bussienesman to do bussien with other nation.

Islam should be put in the same category as the Nazi worshiper's and the KKK. Briefly mentioned and only in terms of disgust for this cult of murderers, child molesters, rapist, and looters. If you have to mention this cult of evil than at least tell the truth about them.

Given your eloquent rebuttal of the State's resolution, I can only hope you were educated elsewhere; or else it would hardly appear necessary to wait until we are behind the rest of the world academically.
And all of our Texas history books should have plenty about Islam and Muslims:
The Muslim Assassin of Robert F. Kennedy, Sirhan Sirhan ('68)
The Muslim killers at the '72 Olympics
The Islamist psychopaths who attacked our embassy in Tehran ('79)
The Muslim who tried but failed to assasinate the Pope ('81)
The Muslim truck bomber at the Marine barracks in Beirut ('83)
The Muslim "Lockerbie bomber" ('88)
The Muslim religion-of-peace-niks who bombed the US offices of the Saudi National Guard in Riyadh ('95) and the Khobar Towers in Dhahran ('96)
Then there were the Muslim flower children who blew a hole in the USS Cole (2000).
I would be remiss not to point out the crowning glory of all Muslim peace activists on 11 September 2001.
There were a few others along the way- and since- but in keeping with the State's policy not to mention too much about the wonderful contributions of Islam and Muslims to our society, we'll just leave those out.

First you people are judgeing than whole religion by what afew member who arenot following the treaching of the religion. Christian doesnot have total cleam hand what about the Crusades , Western Civilization Colonization of the world, Western Civilization attemp to rid Islam from the world thought force convertion at baynet point. In 1900 Islam was dieing with only 250 million people as follower the Western Civilization was happy when the Ottoman Empire and the Calphate came to than end. Then Allah took action to save Islam with the orgination of Religious scholar Islam start to grow by the start of the new Islamist century in 1979 there where 750 million muslim in the world, by year 2000 there where 1.5 billion muslim worldwide, by 2008 there where 1.86 billion muslim worldwide. By now it will be at 2.0 billion muslim worldwide or more. In america there alway muslim not in large number, in 1970 there where 100,000 muslim in america now there is between 12 and 15 million muslim in america. What of then are born here or became citizen of this country or where borm here than convert to Islam.

If your're gonna put us pro whites in the same category.. You might as well go ahead and slam dunk the leftist liberals and all the homosexuals in as well. Cause their classified under disgust of the cult of murderers, child molesters, rapist...
FYI Islam is the enemy to the right-wing cause! Just as the Islam religion is to america...

... and with it, the end of Islamic imperial expamnsion in Europe, at least until recently.

And we are not talking abt a handful of malevolent muslims, but millions of "true believers" who follow the qu'ran to the letter.

The roots of all the major religions is compassion.
All of the major religions have their hateful fundamentalists. Good men & women of all religions work toward peace on earth, goodwill to all.

Those fools aren't "social conservative board members" They are batcrap crazies! Anti-science, rapture right bible thumppers with a good touch of racism, bigotry, and misogynists thrown in for good measure.

They think proven and demonstrable LIARs like David Barton are 'experts. And then other fools spew that 'Christian Nation" crap.

You were in the New York public schools until age 20 and still show a near-total lack of skill in spelling, grammar, and sentence structure (as well as common sense). It might be a good idea to enroll in the New Mexico public schools.

I strongly believe that Islam should stay out of our schools system as it is slowly creeping up all over the world, as for those that oppose those that are against Islam, I like to see you go to Mecca or any Islamic country and show your true colors.
Islam should be kept in check where ever they go what ever they do they should be watched carefully like a hawk watches it's prey.
