 Tennessee Common Core Teaches One Nation Under Allah

The perils of on-size-fits all top-down government-controlled education reared its ugly head once again with the news that TN Core, Tennessee’s version of the national Common Core, middle school students in the Maury County School District were required to recite and write, “Allah is the only god,” as part of a history project, as Breitbart News reported:

In the Maury County School District, students were assigned a Five Pillars of Islam project that included the translation of the pillar of “Shahada” as being, “There is no god but Allah; Muhammad is his prophet.”

Joy Ellis, the mother of a seventh-grader at Spring Hill Middle School, said that Christian children should not be instructed to write the Shahada.

“This is a seventh grade state standard, and will be on the TCAP,” Ellis said. “I didn’t have a problem with the history of Islam being taught, but to go so far as to make my child write the Shahada, is unacceptable.”

Another Tennessee middle school parent, Brandee Porterfield, appeared on “Fox and Friends” and objected to the fact that no other religion was being taught in this way, requiring the recitation of a central creed, such as the Lord’s Prayer or the Beatitudes:

"They did this assignment where they wrote out the Five Pillars of Islam, including having the children learn and write the Shahada, which is the Islamic conversion creed," she explained.

Porterfield said she spoke with the Spring Hill Middle School teacher and principal, who said there would not be similar lessons on Christianity and Judaism…

"They don't study any other religions to this extent... It is the state sponsoring religion in schools. They're not going over anything else. For the students to have to memorize this prayer, it does seem like it's indoctrination," said Porterfield.

I see that Saudi Arabia is wanting to help with the immigration crisis? The help they are offering is to build 800 mosques across America.

Makes me wonder what will America look like in 20 years?

Help, huh?
It all depends on how you define 'help'...
Oh what a mess America has put herself in....

Yeah, I probably had the same look on my face as you did.

"Help"? No thanks!

Tennessee, but my home's in Alabama


UK "Home Office" plans were leaked today that ministers of all faiths would have to register with the government as a move to protect against "anti-extremism". Not anti-terror. Anti-extremism.

My thoughts on it in the link below.

Promises 100,000 a year for next 5 years.

That executive order was in 2010

RAPE BY MUSLIMS, epidemic in Europe, and headed this way, thanks to Muslim immigration to the U.S.

Of the current Muslim immigrants to Europe, 80% are Military age men between 18 and 24. Muslims are taking advantage of the border less European Union. Of the 50 million Muslims in Europe, 80% are on welfare.

Oh my! No wonder many European nations are struggling! No economy could survive for long under such a strain.

Theophila, maybe they are just writing checks like I used to think one could when I was a little-bitty girl...

Sometimes Russia looks like an attractive place to live...SIGH I am told they will not take any Arabic refugees.

Ain't never seen such disorder in my born days..and we thought communism was horrible - never thought anyone could outdo their cruelty.

The philosophy of Islam is incompatible with the philosophy and values of the West, and it does not allow for tolerance or acceptance of any other faith. Islam is imbued with treachery, allowing its practitioners to lie (Taquiya) in order to further its goals. Allowing a mass migration of Muslims into the West will doom those societies in a few generations. Europe is already feeling the push-back of non-assimilated Muslims demanding Sharia Law for their neighborhoods (and in many countries, getting it).

Sympathy, compassion and charity are wonderful Christian values. They will only remain so in a Christian society.

Of the 27 wars in the world today, 24 involve Muslims NOT getting along with their neighbors. Islam is a terrifying stew of RELIGION and GOVERNMENT and BLOODY JIHAD.

If a religion punishes apostasy by death, and the religion is the state religion, and the goal of both is to control of the world, the religion cannot be allowed in other countries that regard religious freedom as a God given right.
