Christian Action Network (CAN) has sent a “Letter of Demand” to the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) mandating that it cease its Islamic education program for the nation’s public schools. The DOE Islamic education program is currently being presented to the nation’s schools and teachers through the PBS LearningMedia website.
The newspaper USA Today ran an article on Monday claiming that Donald Trump’s election last November has led to the hijab, commonly known as a symbol of oppression in the Muslim world, becoming a “symbol of resistance and feminism.”
Public students are told to visit this Muslim web site, Islamicity.com, in order to find out what times are appropriate for Muslim prayer. This lesson is being taught in America's public schools with taxpayer funding through the U.S. Department of Education.
In an astoundingly false study of women in Islam, a federally funded study program offered to public schools teaches students that “Muslim women have had some rights for centuries that American women did not have until the 19th and 20th centuries.”
