    [quote][b]Coming soon to an elementary school near you: mandatory indoctrination in Islamic customs and practices. According to The Kansas City Star, third-, fourth- and fifth-graders in Herndon, Virginia, are to be given lessons in the three Rs: Reading, ‘Riting, and Ramadan. During this instruction, public school children will play act being Muslims, and, perhaps unwittingly, convert to Islam.

    Pupils from a nearby Muslim school will visit classes in the town’s public schools to educate their counterparts in Islam. They will be accompanied by something called “a multicultural trainer” named Afeefa Syeed.

    In Herndon, during this month of Ramadan (which began Friday), there will be explanations of the fasting month and “role-playing” that requires students to recite Muslim sacred words and imitate their prayer practices. However, whether the speaker understands what he is saying or not, one is considered to have converted to Islam if he confesses a belief in Allah – and this conversion is considered irrevocable. The penalty for apostasy (and much else, from adultery, to homosexuality, to having pre-marital sexual activity with anyone aside from the intended partner of arranged marriages, often made between first cousins) is death, whether imposed by the government or through private “honor killings.”

    Multicultural trainer Syeed explains, “For teachers and administrators, as well as fellow students, explaining Ramadan helps the school accommodate the religious requirements of the holiday.” Why American children should be strong-armed into imposing “the religious requirements of the holiday” for proselytizing Muslims isn’t addressed. Neither do authorities explain why Islamic prayers have suddenly become part of the curriculum for children attending American public (e.g., non-sectarian) schools, while discussions of Christianity are ruled off limits.

    Hmmm...can't pray to God in school, but you can to Allah.

    If you have kids in school, ask them what they know about Islam to see if they've had "mandatory indoctrination in Islamic customs and practices."

    Religion in school. What a tricky subject.....

    I have always thought there should be a class in High School called "Religions of the World", educating the kids on ALL of the various major religions. The curriculum should be fact based, not philosophy based, and unbiased in it's goals. The goal should never be to convince a child which religion is "right", but to educate the child on the teachings and actions, both past and present, of the various religions of the world.

    Of course, such a course would never fly, because every religion would want theirs to be shown to be the only "right" religion, downplaying the bad things, and playing up the good (if any), while attacking all the others.

    So, No Religion should be taught in school. None, whatsoever. Any other option is destined for failure and unfairness.
