Here is yet another case of what they are doing to our kids in the 7th grade, where they spend weeks learning what a peaceful religion Islam is. It gets to the point where they do everything short of converting the kiddies to Islam. One parent in Orange County had enough when her kid was forced to sing a song extolling the glories of Islam in class.
Of course, the same old text, History Alive-The Medieval World and Beyond, published by the Teachers Curriculum Institute, is involved. It is used in 7th grade classes all over California and other parts of the country as well.
Can you imagine the furor that would erupt if public schools were having pupils sing, "What a friend we have in Jesus...."? It wouldn't just be parents. It would be the ACLU, the courts, and everybody else jumping into the fray. As it is, it is left to parents to stand up to this glorification of Islam that is so politically correct as to be utterly misleading and false.
