    After reading this,I thought about freedom of speech. But if this were any other group religeous or otherwise,people would be on them like flys on ****. This kind of stuff is what breeds terrorism in these young minds.

    Is this free speech or promoting hate? Why can't other groups (not that they are all right) practice free speech,but these guys can?

    Typical media soundbite reporting - pick a textbook from one school and report the story as if every Islamic school in the U.S. has these textbooks. Of course there are probably Christian schools that do this same thing and teach kids that every religion except Christianity is wrong and immoral, but you'll never hear about that on the TV news.

    Every Islamic school doesn't HAVE to be using it - one does! Where's the ACLU - and why aren't they in there, fighting for my right not to have my feelings hurt?

    And, to any Christian schools who are doing the same thing - be patient. The ACLU will get around to you sooner or later.

    Unbelievable! For someone so concerned with the 'law' you have no problem making an accusation with nothing to back it up but, "Of course...probably...never hear about that..." :wtf:

    it doesn't matter what the Muslem teachers say to their kids, for they will burn in the eternal fires of Hell for being born into Islamic false prophet worshipping families. In fact , killing them is a good thing in the eyed of the lord.




    I don't really believe that. But the muslim teachers apparenty do, hence sending their children off as suicide/homicide bombers.

    As long as the schools are private schools, the ACLU will not be touching the issue. Islamic or Christian, they have the right to proscribe their curriculum as they see fit. Are catholic schools any different?

    Any that I know of are. Gosh, teaching hate? In both religion classes and social studies classes, there are units on Judaism, Buddism, Islam, Hinduism, and Christianity. Since the religion units are in 7th grade, I KNOW what is taught, as I teach it. Regarding Islam, it's basically the 5 pillars, no hate there. The Koran is stated to be a holy book to Muslims, no hate there.

    as the article reads, I saw nowhere that teaches hate. It's whats done by those who preach hate using 'infidels' in obvious misinterpretations to spread hate.

    She is referring to a teacher's edition of the book. The TE is going to have the student's text and 'tips for teachers'. This is not like any religion book I've seen, nor the Pretice-Hall Social Studies text used:

    I've never been to a private catholic or christian school, but my early days of church and sunday school briefly hinted at christianity being the only true religion and that all others were false, if I remember correctly. It was over 25 years ago.
