Viral Video Denounces Islamic-Themed Vocabulary Lesson at North Carolina High School.

As well it should!

FARMVILLE, N.C. – A video denouncing an Islamic-themed vocabulary lesson at a North Carolina high school has gone viral, and has now elicited a response from the local school district over the matter.

Dianne Lynn Savage of Florida recently posted a video to Facebook alerting followers about the matter after a parent whose child attends the school sent her a copy of the lesson. In the assignment, students are provided with new vocabulary words to learn, and are given examples of how to use those words in a sentence—all revolving around the Islamic religion.

“Mohammad was familiar with the teachings of Judiasm and Christianity, [and] found solitude to be conducive to understanding proper faith,” read a sentence that featured the vocabulary word “conducive.” “He also found meditation to be helpful.”

“His success not only could be measured not only in quantitative ways, the numbers of followers of Islam, but also in a qualitative way [because of] the improvement in people’s lives,” read another in teaching the word “quantitative.”

The lesson then provides various exercises where students are instructed to fill in the blank where certain words are missing.

“Mohammad has just finished speaking when I arrive, but I hope the opportunity to hear him ___. I’d like another chance,” one sentence read.

“There are such vast numbers of people who are anxious to spread the Muslim faith that it would be impossible to give a(n) ___ amount,” stated another.

[…]

“When was the last time you saw your son or daughter, or grandson or granddaughter, come home from public school with a lesson built around God, around Jesus Christ?” she continued. “I thought this wasn’t allowed. I thought they didn’t allow religion in public schools.”

Alas, no; it’s just Christianity they don’t allow.

But they’re quite happy to promote every other religion, from humanism to Islam to paganism…

    Adding insult to injury, the sentences are grammatically flawed, as though they were written by an idiot or by somebody who has not yet mastered English… a less than ideal situation when attempting to *teach* English…

    But a perfect scenario for designing people to be less than independent, more like serfs; good citizen-subjects of the totalitarian state.

    Where’s the ACLU about this? If school administrators/school teachers were promoting Christianity in any public school, it would be National News by now, and all the liberals/leftists would be up-in-arms about it, angry, appalled, and incessantly reminding everyone about “separation of church and state”. The ACLU would already be dragging the matter into the courts, and the tv news stations would have Constitutional “experts” opining on the matter day-in and day-out : And all the Constitutional “experts” would be horrified Christianity is being taught in the public school — they don’t even want Christianity to be mentioned in the schools — let alone promoted. Oh wait, yes, Christianity can be mentioned in the schools, but only when Christianity is being spat on and lied about, denigrated and blamed for every problem in the world.

    But if someone slaps around the lefties like Franco or Pinochet did, (most) Christians denounce THEM.

    Because we prefer liberal democracy to Franco-style authoritarianism.

    Or Pinochet.

    Liberal democracy is our heritage. It’s not perfect, but it’s better than the alternatives.
