When a mom discovered what her teen’s seventh-grade teacher had given her child at school, she sent the educator something special back that the teacher was probably not expecting. The California mom posted about the disconcerting circumstance on Facebook, opening up a massive debate about who was really in the wrong — the mom or the instructor.
Tara Cali sat down to help her child with his homework when she cracked open the textbook to see that the history lesson was all about Islam. The assignment even went as far as to be interactive with a code kids could scan with their cell phones to be treated to an actual Muslim call to prayer at a mosque. Incensed by what her child was being indoctrinated with in class, Tara sent an epic lesson back to the teacher.
The public education system in Bakersfield evidently believes that teaching Islam, while omitting anything negative about it, is acceptable. At the same time, they believe Christianity has no place on campus, let alone in a lesson. In the name of learning the world’s religions, the teacher had an entire segment dedicated to Islam, yet not a single assignment in the curriculum about the very religion our country was built on — Christianity.
Tara gave her son a lesson in standing up for your beliefs and your God, not bowing down to a religion liberals insist is misunderstood. Rather than making her student complete the homework, she sent the assignment back with a clear message for the teacher, along with some research they can do on the matter, listing six Bible verses.
“My son WILL not be a part of this in any sort of way,” she wrote in the workbook and uploaded a photo of it to Facebook. “This is bad teaching material. He will NOT partake, If you have a problem with it, call our lawyer,” she concluded with passion and conviction in her message.
After listing several Bible verses which back up her stance on the matter, Tara asked a very valid question at the bottom of the page. “How about Christian practices? That sheet has never come home, this year or last!” she stated.
As Christianity has been scrubbed from every facet of the public education system, from not being able to have a Bible in class to being reprimanded for praying, none of which is being pushed on non-believers, students are being force-fed Islam through lessons disguised as “history.” Yet, the 270 million killed by Muslims throughout history is neglected in the lesson. It’s nothing more than watering down reality while warming kids up through their school years to accept Islam.
How can the argument used for removing the Confederate flag not work for removing Islam from textbooks or lessons? If both are considered part of history and the flag was removed, then the next move to clean the curriculum needs to be Islam, since more have died in the name of that religion than under the South’s battle flag.
Teachers are inching in Islam, little by little. When you stand up and say your child isn’t going to learn it, you’re called a bigot. Christianity is the oldest religion in the world and goes back to the beginning of time, so if religious history needs to be taught, it needs to be that one.
However, Christianity is being silenced and removed at every opportunity when it comes up. Kudos to Tara, you’re parenting your child right and others need to take note of how it’s done.
