On June 15, Christian Action Network (CAN) filed a “friend of the court” brief to overturn a federal court ruling upholding Islamic indoctrination programs in the public schools. CAN is based in Forest, VA.
The spreading threat of children being indoctrinated into Islam claimed new ground in West Virginia to the shock of parents in and around Gerrardstown last month.
What broke the controversy was the courageous stand by a dad whose seventh-grade daughter came home with a thick learning packet on Islam.
A student and her father who brought a federal lawsuit against a Maryland public school district, alleging that it compelled the student to “profess” tenets of Islam and be subjected to Islamic indoctrination at school, have lost the first round in court.
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.”
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.

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.
