I have tried to show the basics of Islam for years. This is the third part in a series of why we need to know what our children are learning in school. There was a time when we prayed before all events in our schools. Invocations were proudly given. Until one athiest named madalyn O’Hare decided that all this offended her and God must be pushed from our schools.
Madalyn Murray O’Hair (née Mays; April 13, 1919 – September 29, 1995),who also used multiple pseudonyms (her most preferred being M. Bible), was an American atheist activist, founder of American Atheists, and the organization’s president from 1963 to 1986. She created the first issues of American Atheist Magazine. One of her sons, Jon Garth Murray, became the nominal president of the organization from 1986 to 1995, but she remained de facto president during these nine years.
O’Hair is best known for the Murray v. Curlett lawsuit, which led to a landmark Supreme Court ruling ending official Bible-reading in American public schools in 1963. This came just one year after the Supreme Court prohibited officially sponsored prayer in schools in Engel v. Vitale. After she founded the American Atheists and won Murray v. Curlett, she achieved attention to the extent that in 1964 Life magazine referred to her as “the most hated woman in America”.
So you have a little background on why God was pushed from our schools and now the ACLU vehemently defends this position bringing multiple lawsuits for violations. Unfortunately it’s all against the rights of Christians. There are a few schools (mostly rural schools) that bus their students to church once a week to be educated. But this is far too few.
Both Parents have to work to make ends meet and the kids are learning from school about the things that used to be taught by them.
Churches have failed as they care more about numbers than they do about teaching the Gospel, so the children’s questions go unanswered.
Many stories emerge daily about Christian children disciplined because their Christmas treats of candy canes are too Christian. You see the child is proud to tell that the stripes on the candy remind us of Christ’s suffering, only to be singled out and made to feel foolish. One of my friends tells that her granddaughter was told she couldn’t bring her Bible to school in answer to an assignment where the students could bring their favorite book. The teacher said it was inappropriate.
OK you get the idea. Christianity out of the school. So fast forward to today when homework assignments are given about the pillars of Islam complete with a bar code students could use to hear Muslim prayer.
What??? Yes this is all done because students must learn about all religions. Really? Do they point out the difference between Christianity and Islam? Do they point out that Islam thinks Jesus will tell all Christians that they must convert to Islam or be killed? Oh yes islam says that. It says Jesus was only a prophet and that he didn’t die on the cross for us, that Allah provided a look a like and Jesus went on to marry and have a happy life. Not that Jesus is God’s son or the second in the Trinity.
So are you beginning to see why this is WRONG? No other religion teaches these lies about Christ.
I have heard from those in Islamic countries who don’t have the freedom we have to educate children. They don’t understand why we refuse to stop this practice of teaching this religion. It’s not a religion of Peace and its time for us to say enough.
It’s time for parents and churches to step up and teach these differences or our children will be forced to learn idol worship and false religions from those who specialize in propaganda.
Teach them to love all peoples but teach them the path to God led by Jesus. Sign every petition you can. Let your representatives know to stop this, but take the step and talk to your children. Read the Bible to them. Teach them before they learn confusion.
Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.
It’s time to say enough! Take back our children’s minds!
