Wow: Students Told to Inscribe "There Is No God But Allah and Mohammad Is His Prophet" In Arabic as Part of "Calligraphy Lesson;" Girls Encouraged to Wear Hijab to Better Understand Muslim Code of Modest Dress

Their defense is that they didn't translate the Arabic central pillar of the Muslim faith; students were merely made to write the words championing a religion not their own, without knowing what they were writing.

So.... they were merely to unknowingly copy the key tenet of a faith they did not believe in.

Students asked at some point for a Bible. I guess maybe when they figured out what the teacher was having them write? She told them no, they'd already read the Bible.

It was time to consider a new religion, I guess.


Hey, illuminated writing is an important form of expression, historically! No one can object to writing out "Jesus is Lord" in illuminated calligraphy a few times, just to "appreciate" that "culture."

Read the link. The parents found out after the fact and it was not pretty and the school told them to go sit and spin.

Here's the thing. Knowing about other religions and cultures and societies and the like used to be a hallmark of an educated person. But there is a universe of difference between merely teaching something and stealth proselytizing for it.

Not to mention that when you tell kids and their parents that omfg what is wrong with you separation of church and state so you can't sing Silent Night during the Holiday Celebration and then turn around and do this, well, people will not give you the benefit of the doubt as to your good faith and intentions.


Also the excuse given by the school district is bullshit. If you just want to see how complex Arabic is to write, have the kids copy a headline from a newspaper or, if it must be artistic, have them do some lines from one of Rumi's poems.

I mean, a public school just literally forced the kids to convert to a religion. That's the entirety of the requirement for converting to Islam. Nothing about what they feel in their heart and soul.

And of course, like I said, God and Christians and whatever won't make a big deal about it because the kids were just drawing. And Muslims probably won't either. But should our public schools really be forcing kids to convert to other religions? Whether the kids realize the implication of what they're doing or not? And whether their church would recognize that conversion (of course not) or not?

1) Western European and American leadership are no longer anchored to the traditional western philosophy and enlightenment ideas.

2) Western European and American leadership have rejected Christianity in order to achieve a purely secular state.

3) Purely secular states can only control its citizens through threats of force and violence or pay offs with food and entertainment

4) The items of #3 sap the moral strength of the nation, turn the citizens against the state so that the citizenry no longer support the state's decisions.

5) The greatest threat against the states of Europe and America is radical Islam.

6) The state's decision to protect itself from radical Islam will not be supported via item #4

7) As a consequence Western Europe and America will lose the war against radical Islam.

Samantha Power spoke to reporters Wednesday ahead of Fridays major international conference on Syria in New York. Power says the talks will look at the gaps between American and Russian and Iranian positions on the fate of Assad and she says those gaps remain very real. The UN Security Council is expected to consider a resolution later Friday endorsing the talks.

_________________________________________________

Depends on perspective. The evil death cult worshipers consider the recitation of the Shahada as conversion regardless of intention. And that only makes sense when we consider the fact that the evil death cult rejects free will. So gather a bunch of kafirs and give them the opportunity to convert or die. They recite the Shahada, and all is well! The evil death cult that is Islam does not care about intention, only obedience.

Not quite. That involves a confession of faith and taking the host into your body. And if you do it as a robotic following of motions, it does not make you Catholic. Or Christian.

Saying this phrase is not some magic incantation. It's no more powerful that "abra cadabra." Maybe there's millions of mohammedians who now think uttering those words "makes you a muslim," but it's nonsense.

I'm all for stamping out this death cult, but throwing our arms up and running around in circles because we uttered the unutterable is Dark Ages shit.

104 Sometimes a "wait, what" moment can be extremely insightful.

So unionized leftist public school educrats, despite the left's professed dedication to secularism, science, women's rights, and gay rights, are now regularly being caught trying to indoctrinate students in Islam, a religion which despises all of those things.

Wait, what?

Isn't this utterly incoherent and massively self-contradictory?

At first glance, yes. Until one realizes that the actual unspoken dedication of the left is to the long-run destruction of Western civilization and culture. And since Islam is the current strong horse on that front, after the failure of the previous strong horse of Communism, for the left to push Islam via the public schools they control makes perfect strategic sense.

Islam does not require you feel anything in your heart. It is exactly the same as getting baptized and memorizing the beatitudes and getting your first communion in catholicism.

The only requirement to convert to Islam is to say the Shahada. They have no further requirements then that. Where you convert because of whats in your heart or because someone is pointing a gun at your head, it makes no difference.

I don't know what you're even arguing about. Catholicism (and I imagine other Christian sects) have a much more complex conversion process, including free will and all of that and accepting Jesus Christ in your heart and whatnot. Islam does not.

I'm not saying it means anything, and that there's some magic to it -- only that in the eyes of the ummah, those kids are now Muslims. And that a public school forced them to convert to Islam, just the same as if they made them go through the headache to convert to Catholicism.

No, I don't think saying "there is no god but allah and muhammed is his messenger" is some kind of voodoo hex and the skies will open and you'll be damned. Just that schools should not be in the business of doing what is, essentially, a forced religious conversion in the eyes of Islam.

__________________

In the eyes of Muslims, they are Muslims.

I went to college in the 1980's. I took a course in Middle Eastern civilization taught by a Pakistani Muslim. The first day of classes, the very first thing this guy did was instruct all of us to stand up and recite the shahada (which he had written out on the board).

I had no idea what it was or what it meant at the time, but I refused to say it. The professor (and he was a full professor) told me if I didn't say it he would flunk me. I left class, went down to the registrar's office and dropped the class. (BTW, the rest of the class did as the professor ordered them, and he beamed at his class full of new Muslim converts).

Muslims believe they score points in heaven for getting new converts. You get converts by getting non-Muslims to say the shahada. This should absolutely NOT be tolerated in public schools -- no matter what ruse is used to accomplish it.

There are all kinds of non-religious sentences that could have been used to demonstrate the complexity of calligraphy. The fact that the shahada was chosen was no accident.

That reminds me. I have a couple cousins who grew up in a church where they had to wear dresses, not cut their hair, etc...I saw one of them put up a link on facebook the other day to an article on modesty as a Christian value...and there was a discussion about what it actually means that I found very interesting (also interesting that one of them may have left that church, which also happened with a coworker who was Pentecostal and their pastor all of a sudden outlawed jean skirts and she was like 'this is bullshit, I'm out'.)

And that ramble comes from the thought that a discussion on how modesty is practiced in different religious cultures might have been very interesting. Nuns, amish, conservative jewish traditions, etc...all could have been included.

You're being obtuse. Applying Christian standards of faith misses the point. In Islam belief is irrelevant. What is relevant is obedience.

Since they wanted the girls to feel what it's like to wear a hijab, I wonder if they'd also have them submit to another Muslim practice -- clitorectomies -- to see what that feels like too?

After all, if they want the students to experience what it feels like to be a Muslim female, why not do it right?

I believe what's being contended is not the magic of the phrase, but
the teacher's intent in having them write out a phrase with purported
instant-conversion implications.

.
.
.So are they going to write these kids names down on some big chart and follow them through throughout their life because they instantly converted to Islam?

Is there some big heavenly scoreboard they keep track of this crap on?

The teacher was stupid and could have used anything else to teach calligraphy but she chose this. Suspend her and do an investigation and then fire her for bringing religion into a public school. Simple.

Plus why are they teaching calligraphy anyway? Hell they don't even teach cursive writing anymore.

No one is saying that. We're saying that in the eyes of the ummah (the "muslim community") all you need to do is say that phrase to convert to Islam.

So the school just told the kids to go through the process to convert to Islam as part of a lesson in calligraphy.

Now, as an agnostic / atheisty person, I find the whole thing silly.

BUT, Muslims do not find it silly. Just like Christians don't find "accepting Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior" and getting baptized silly.

And public schools should not be in the game of getting kids to go through the process of converting to a religion.

That's all anyone is saying. I don't think anyone is saying "we need to re-convert these kids back now or God will damn us!!!" they're saying "for fucks sake, Ms. School Teacher, why would you have the kids do a lesson that according to the Koran is all they need to convert to Islam? Isn't that pushing a religious belief on the students? If kids can't sing "silent night" during their "winter festival" holidays, they certainly shouldn't be forced to recite religious conversion texts, right?"

196 Muslims believe they score points in heaven for getting new converts. You get converts by getting non-Muslims to say the shahada. This should absolutely NOT be tolerated in public schools -- no matter what ruse is used to accomplish it.

There are all kinds of non-religious sentences that could have been used to demonstrate the complexity of calligraphy. The fact that the shahada was chosen was no accident.

I home educate my children and we do all sorts of things in addition to math, science, English, and history. And we get it all done in under three hours a day. But the public schools are failing at teaching the kids how to read and add, so adding in extras like calligraphy right now seems a bit...optimistic.

But my point is that in todays world it's verboten for kids to pray before a football game, sing christmas songs, or even celebrate christmas (it's now "winter holiday"). Yet, a teacher has the kids write out a phrase to convert to Islam and the school shrugs it off.

It's the double standard more than anything that drives me nuts. But either way, I don't think the school should be in the business of touching religious conversions and things like that.

Doesn't matter what you think. It's what Islam accepts as a conversion.

There was some Islamic shooting in Africa where the jihadis allowed people to walk away with their lives after they said the phrase.

And this matters because Islam is waging a war against all unbelievers. It is foolish to think indoctrinating this into American children has no meaning in that context.

And that is why I'm unwilling to give the "hey, probably just a dumb teacher who didn't know she was converting students" possibility any credence.

But my point is that in todays world it's verboten for kids to pray before a football game, sing christmas songs, or even celebrate christmas (it's now "winter holiday"). Yet, a teacher has the kids write out a phrase to convert to Islam and the school shrugs it off.

It's the double standard more than anything that drives me nuts. But either way, I don't think the school should be in the business of touching religious conversions and things like that.

Another wonderful gift by Paul Ryan

"the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) was inserted into the omnibus budget deal passed by the House of Representatives late last night. Engadget reports: "Last night's budget bill wasn't all about avoiding a government shutdown. Packed inside the 2,000-page bill announced by Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) is the full text of the controversial Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) of 2015. If you'll recall, the measure passed the Senate back in October, leaving it up to the House to approve the bill that encourages businesses to share details of security breaches and cyber attacks. Despite being labeled as cybersecurity legislation, critics of CISA argue that it's a surveillance bill that would allow companies to share user info with the US government and other businesses. As TechDirt points out, this version of the bill stripped important protections that would've prevented directly sharing details with the NSA and required any personally identifying details to be removed before being shared. It also removes restrictions on how the government can use the data."
