I join Martin Mawyer, president of Christian Action Network, in demanding that the U.S. Department of Education end its Islamic indoctrination program called “Access Islam,” which is designed for grades 5 through 12.
This program is outrageous and HIGHLY unconstitutional.
Where does the U.S. Department of Education get off asking students such question as:
“What do Muslim prayers sound like?”
“What are some of the things Muslims say during prayer?”
And these questions are just the tip of the iceberg of unconstitutional questions and activities being thrown at public school students. Children are being told to “understand the basic beliefs of Islam” and to “read about what it means to proclaim faith or belief as a Muslim.”
This ridiculously unconstitutional Islamic program was started under the Obama Adminstration. Now it’s up to you to end it. And I pray that you end it immediately.
Children are being asked to learn Islamic scripture in this government-funded program and then told they must give the “meaning” of scriptures found in the Quran!
No similar program is offered for Christian, Jews or any other major religion: JUST ISLAM!
Please do not hesitate or delay in abolishing “Access Islam” — which is clearly funded, developed and promoted by the U.S. Department of Education for public schools.
