Kansas Public School Promotes 5 Pillars of Islam

Screen shot 2013-08-21 at 12.32.06 PM

Parents in Wichita, Kan., were shocked to learn a giant wall display inside their children’s elementary school was erected to promote the Five Pillars of Islam.

According to a school district spokesperson, the display was reportedly part of a religion component being taught at Minneha Core Knowledge Magnet School.
“The bulletin board that originally caused the concern does represent the 5 Pillars of Islam — in a historical context of their studies,” the spokesperson said.
“There is also a painting of ‘The Last Supper’ hanging in the school as part of the study of art and the Renaissance period,” the spokesperson added.
Nevertheless, the school has removed the display until the lesson is taught later in the year.
School officials said the study of Islam is part of their “Core Knowledge” magnet curriculum.
Students also study Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Buddhism.

I would be willing to bet when the school teaches about Islam, they instructor will conveniently leave out the 109 verses in the Quran that dictate hate, murder, and terror against all non-muslims.
I bet the instructor will leave out the barbaric Sharia Law that accompanies this “religion” which allows the genital mutilation of little girls, the hanging of gay men, the stoning to death of women, and the murder of children through “honor killings”…

    Sounds like BS to me if my child was in there would be out in a NY min.Tax dollars are wasted on programs like these ! 😉 😉 😀

    This is crapola. I called these appeasers and apologists on Monday, and they really have no intention of “teaching” about other religions. Furthermore, the “5 Pillars of Islam” is NOT part of some “historical context”. It is DOCTRINE, plain and simple. Call these fools and let them have a piece of your mind concerning their tripe disguised as “learning”. Their number is 316-973-8800.

      My grandson had the same “instruction” in an Ohio school. Of course, he was also being taught Investigations Math, which as nearly as I can tell, was designed NOT to teach math – good thing we oldsters are still around to teach him what he really needs to know…

    • Bighoss

      It is impossible to teach about Islam in a historical context without some reference to the Five Pillars of Wisdom. Would you contend that Christianity could be taught in ITS historical context without reference to the Sermon on the Mount?

      • nevada_geon

        Let me put it this way, you mooooooslem sympathizer: I don’t want IIIIIIIIIIslam, the religion/culture that has contributed precisely NOTHING to civilization and humanity for nearly 1,400 years and counting – unless murder and mayhem are considered a “contribution” – to be taught in our public schools in ANY context. Get it Neville Chamberlain?

        • Bighoss

          Then I take it that you do not disagree with what I posted, since you did not take issue with it, but instead went off on an unrelated bigoted tantrum–apparently to deflect from having to respond substantively to what I posted.

          • nevada_geon

            Apparently you’re a just another pseudo-intellectual progtard douche rocket with the IQ of a bag of fertilizer who can’t read. Get lost [email protected] I’m sure there’s an opening in a rainbows, unicorns, and puffy clouds thread on The Daily KOS just waiting for someone with your critical thinking skills.

          • Bighoss

            Oh, I CAN read all right. But what I did NOT read in your earlier post was anything that responded to the substance of what I posted earlier. Apparently YOU can not read for meaning, since you blindly ignored that, did not answer the question that I posed, and instead went off on a tangential matter that kept YOU from exercising any critical thinking skills.

            You are polemically incompetent and don’t realize it, but they way that you crawfish away from the matter actually presented proves it in spades.

          Amen to this post.

  • Freedomforall

    Islam should be banned from every being taught or discussed in a favorable light. Islam is a cancer. It is a poison and plague whenever and wherever it resides. One glance at what it is doing in Denmark, England, France and Spain is enough for the world to say thanks but no thanks NOW LEAVE! Islam has no place in the western world.

    • Chief Cockeye

      Congress should pass a resolution declaring Islam a system of government and NOT a religion; therefore, it could not claim protections under the U.S. Constitution. Without such a resolution – & a SCOTUS decision supporting such a resolution – we, the Judea-Christian world, are doomed because they breed like flies.

  • Kelly Lynn

    I have to wonder, will they teach that women mean less than cattle? That women have no rights under Sharia law? Oh and where is SCOTUS? This seems like a church and state issue to me.

    • Bighoss

      SCOTUS is not some kind of regulatory agency. They do not initiate the cases that come before them. Those cases are forwarded on appeal by persons, organizations, or agencies appealing decisions from lower courts.

      So lay off SCOTUS.

      • Kelly Lynn

        Why thanks. Being a Paralegal and all I NEVER would have know SCOTUS wasn’t a regulatory agency. But if the State of Oklahoma can’t have the 10 Commandments on the lawn outside of a county court house, because it violates the separation of church and state, “Haskell County Board of Commissioners v. James Green,” then I see no reason why the school board should be able to get away with this. NO ONE at SCOTUS can send the school board a note with the ruling and say, “This applies to you as well.” It is within thier rights or to contact the Illustrious bozos at the White House and Have them do it….

        • Bighoss

          If the Haskell County officials had included other exhibits of the history of laws and law-making, they could have kept their 10 Commandments display, bu they did not. If the information on Islam had been in isolation from any other posted information concerning world religions, it could have been removed on grounds that it selectively endorsed on religion over others. But it was NOT in isolation from other information concerning other religions. If you are a paralegal, you should understand this important difference. It is on this same basis that the two stone tablets representing the 10 C’s can be constitutionally displayed at the U.S. Supreme Court Building.

          The egregious little poseur, Judge Roy Moore, was told that he could display the 10 Commandments if he would accompany them with displays of other items representing the history of laws and law-making. He refused to do so and was booted off the bench.

          Study up some more on the First Amendment and the Establishment Clause and maybe you will understand these things better.

          • Kelly Lynn

            Or maybe stop listening to anyone who uses “Hoss” in his name and hides behind pseudonyms.

          • Bighoss

            If it is your choice to remain ignorant on this issue and ignore what I have posted, I understand. To post a substantive response is probably beyond the meager competence you gained from your alleged training as a paralegal.

          • Kelly Lynn

            Really? Hmm and just what credentials does thou posses hmm? Do enlighten us oh great and wise and all knowing? Do please shed your light of knowledge down on all us poor unfortunate and illiterate peasants oh great one. Oh and great one….1800’s called and want there facial hair style back.

          • Bighoss

            Once more you display your strong crawfishing tendencies, as you scuttle way away from the discussion topic, completely ignoring what I posted above concerning the Haskell County matter and Judge Moore. Instead, you deflect completely away from that in favor of blithering out ad hominem insults. Should that surprise me? Not at all, for it has become so predictable a
            response from right wing nuts on this and other forums that I have come to expect it.

  • Ron Dean

    all forms of Islam needed to be removed from our country! this is not about religious freedom, it is about terrorists masking as religious.

  • 1coachretired1

    I taught middle school social studies and there are chapters of various religions in the textbook.However, the chapter on Islam is the longest and most thorough in explaining every detail of the Muslims, while the information on Christianity is very brief.
    Just one more example of the “foot in the door” that liberals have allowed Muslims to acquire establishment in America!

  • Robert S Moulds

    What about the separation of church and state if they don’t allow Christian pray than they should not allow Muslim pray it is a double standard. If I had it my way they would read America alone by Mark Styen to see the damage done if liberal democracy allows for an Islamic revolution. To liberals the aftermath is not pretty as you pleasent easy going life is replaced by cruel new order.
