Islamic Brainwashing now
a part of California Schools

It was one of those cyber stories that just popped up on the Internet one night a week or so ago. Initially it seemed destined to remain there. It was one of those “right-wing” stories that, even though it had a certain ring of truth to it, it seemed almost too extreme to be true.

Since 1947 the United States Supreme Court has hammered any school, or school teacher, in America who has ever entertained the idea of promoting religion in the classroom. The wall of separation between Church and State that has now become an “iron curtain” was initially conceived in the minds of the nine old men on the high court in 1898. It has pretty much been the “rule of law” since Everson v Board of Education in 1947 and McCollum v Board of Education a year later. That fact notwithstanding, it was now being reported by various Internet sources that a public school system in California was mandating that all students—even fundamental Christian and Jewish students whose ideology would be diametrically opposed to Islam—to study the Muslim faith in the classrooms. Of course, since it is construed as a violation of the Constitution to mandate any religious studies in the classrooms of America’s public school systems, this was one of those stories that seemed too incredulous to believe.

Of course, astute Americans have long realized that the “wall of separation” between Church and State in the United States was an extremely selective “wall.” It has been focused specifically and exclusively on Christianity. When you examine the landmark Supreme Court cases on religious rights and the abridgment of those rights you will quickly discover that in every instance where religious rights were abrogated the rights lost were lost to Christians...and in every instance where religious rights were broadened they were expanded to non-Christian faiths such as Buddhism, Islam...or witchcraft (which is the religion of Satan).

The State of California has long been viewed by the more “straight-laced” Christian community as “Sodom on the Pacific,” with San Francisco, America’s first homosexual haven, serving as Gomorrah. Hollywood—together with its morality-challenged movie actors and actresses who view life through a warped rose-colored prism—doubles as Sodom. It is no wonder then that a program demanding the forced “study” of Islam could be mandated in the California school system.

The first inkling that something was “constitutionally amiss” with the California school system came shortly after the Christmas/New Year’s break when students in San Luis Obispo, Byron and Brentwood, California returned to their classrooms to discover that they would be forced to “study” Islam during a three week program. What infuriated Christian parents most is that those same students who were being forced to study a religion which denies the deity of Jesus Christ were denied the right—by the same school board—to wear crosses or other symbols of Christianity or Judaism because that jewelry defied the Supreme Court’s standing “separation” theory (even though, by the widest stretch of the imagination—and based on case law—students cannot be construed as the target of the separation doctrine. The separation doctrine deals exclusively with government or quasi-government or public agencies or offices—such as the public school system that cannot legally mandate that their students “study” the Muslim faith (even under the guise of “ancient culture”).

The first inkling that something was wrong in Sodom came when students brought home handouts that discussed what was being taught in their classrooms. Adding insult to injury after the September 11 tragedy, parents discovered that their children were forced to wear an Islamic robe, adopt a Muslim name by which they would be addressed throughout the course of study and, in one school in San Luis Obispo, to stage their own Jihad. In this post-September 11 era, parents argued most vehemently that forcing their children to pretend they were Muslim warriors fighting for Islam was wrong. In addition, students were required to stage a make-believe pilgrimage to Mecca. One angry parent complained to the Washington Times (the only major newspaper in the nation to report the story) that they ‘...could never teach Christianity like this.” Students who cannot bring a Christian Bible to school, or quote Scriptures from their Bibles without running the risk of being suspended, were forced to memorize Islamic scriptures from the Koran (Qu’ran) in a course on Islam that is one of eleven “special education” units that has been added to California’s social studies classes that is now being taught all over the State. In other words, the initial reports which suggested that the Islamic training course was isolated to a few counties, was incorrect. The class, which is now included in California’s curriculum standards, was approved by State officials in 1998.

Jennifer Shroder, [hey that's me!] the parent who sought help from the Pacific Justice Institute, was told by the principle of the San Luis Obispo school principle that she could not “opt out” of the program on religious grounds. Clearly, if the school board in San Luis Obispo had decided to hold a three week study on Christianity and a principal denied the parents of an Islamic student the right to “opt out,” several things would have happened. First, such an egregious act would have headlined the evening news on every television network. Second, the principal would have been fired before breakfast the next day. Third, the American Civil Liberties Union would have filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the school board. Fourth, the U.S. Justice Department would have launched an investigation. Finally, Maxine Waters, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan and the Islamic Council for Religious Something-or-other would have been fighting each other for air time to denounce the Christian bigots who were proselytizing for converts in the Islamic pool.

Peggy Green, the superintendent of the Union School District in Byron told the Washington Times on Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2002 that her schools are only “teaching” about Islam, not promoting Islam as a faith. “We are not teaching religion,” Green insisted. “We are teaching the California state-mandated standards with state-adopted textbooks. Dressing up in costume, role-playing and simulation games are all used to stimulate class discussion and are common teaching practices used in other subjects as well,” she said, adding, “There’s nothing to get upset about.” Green added that “...her schools teach all religions in the same way.” By that, Green apparently meant all non-Judeo-Christian classes since California—like the other 49 States—believe that teaching anything about Christianity (even the basic tenets of that faith) violates the constitutional precept of separation as devised by nine old men who apparently never read the 1st Amendment.

Learning that the Washington Times was investigating the myriad of Internet reports on the Islamic brainwashing, Roger Wolfertz, the deputy general counsel for the California Department of Education told the newspaper that promoting any religion in a public school would violate State code. Of course, everyone knew that. Wolfertz should have sat in the class. Just as forcing students—regardless of their theological perspective—to read the Holy Bible could, and very likely would, be construed as promoting a religion, it is hard to understand how Wolfertz or Peggy Green could, with a straight face, insist that forcing students of any theological perspective to read, and memorize, Koranic scripture could be construed as anything other than promoting a religion.

What the State of California did in 1998 is expressly forbidden by the 1st Amendment. By mandating a “course” in Islam, the State of California legislated a state-sanctioned religion and then tried to disguise it as a course in “ancient culture.” Critics of the program who learned about the course from Internet reports initiated by the Pacific Justice Institute and an article written for Assist News Service by Assembly of God pastor and former PTL associate Austin Miles were outraged when they learned that California schools were forcing Christian students to “study” Islam. “I don’t think 7th graders should be reading the Koran,” Phyllis Schlafly, president of Eagle Forum told the Times. “They shouldn’t be playing games with another religion...It’s just an outrage.” Ken Conner, who replaced Gary Bauer as president of Family Research Council agreed with Schlafly. Conner told the Times that if students were to dress up like Pilgrims and give thanks to God in the classroom, civil rights activists “...would be apoplectic. [It] reflects a terrible double standard. Anything that smacks of Christianity is systematically excluded in the classroom, but everything less like Wicca to Islam is welcomed. This case exhibits all the more that Christians find themselves in a disfavored class of religion...”

Conner’s assessment was, unfortunately, all too correct. The California liberals have shown, all too graphically and much too frequently, that it is not the free exercising of religious liberty which they find objectionable, it is the exercising of Christianity which they find distasteful. The California State School Board used such secrecy and stealth to implement the new class, called World History and Geography: Medieval and Early Modern Times that only teachers with a “need to know” were “in the loop.” Elizabeth Christina Lemings, a school teacher in the Union School District, was one of those not important enough to be in the loop. She found out about the program when her son Joseph, a student in the school where she teaches, brought home one of the handouts. Angered by the double standard, she contacted Assist News. Miles interviewed her at her school. “We could never teach Christianity like this,” Lemings told him. “We can’t even mention the name of Jesus in the public schools, but over there...” she pointed to the adjacent building, “...they teach Islam as the true religion—and students are taught about Islam and how to pray to Allah.”

Read the Court ruling by Judge Phyllis Hamilton [a Clinton appointee] authorizing public schools to REQUIRE students to get on their hands and knees and pray to Allah by memory along with any other practices of faith  "in demonstration." This ruling was upheld by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and the US Supreme Court refused to hear it, thus allowing it as setting precedent, a tool used to uphold the decision in other states.

In my opinion, this reduces our children to slaves, for slaves have the right not to believe as they are forced to take the position and pray to foreign gods. - Jen Shroder 11/27/2010
