The Associated Press quoted Kathy Miller, president of the Texas
Freedom Network, asking why this happened when "anti-Muslim rhetoric
in this country has reached fever pitch." The Texas School Board began
their stand to clean up our textbooks long before the Cordoba Mosque
situation made headlines. But now that you mention it, let’s look at
what the Houghton Mifflin textbook wrote about the Cordoba Mosque in
Spain. What do you know, it has a shoutout:
"The Great Mosque at Cordoba"
"The great city of Cordoba demanded a great mosque. The building
begun by Abd al Rahman I in AD 785 eventually became the third largest
mosque in the world. Twice the wall facing Mecca was pushed outward."
[This could prove ominous for the southeast buildings from Feisal
The textbook continues: "The courtyard and mosque, open to each
other, allowed Muslims to feel Allah’s invisible presence whether they
were inside or outside the mosque."
Let’s flip to the Christian Unit to find something similar to
Allah’s presence…let’s see… "Tacitus shared the Roman view that
Christians should be convicted (death) for their "hatred against
mankind." No, that can’t be it…
Back to the Cordoba Mosque in the textbook, who was this Abd al
Rahman I? It leads into the Cordoba Mosque section: "Although there
were many Muslims in Spain, there was no unified Muslim government.
[new heading] UNITING MUSLIMS IN SPAIN: By 756 the Umayyad forces in
Spain, who did not support the new Abbasid caliphate back in Baghdad,
accepted Abd al Rahman as their leader. With this Umayyad help, Abd al
Rahman was able to establish an independent Muslim kingdom."
Just what we need, a unified Muslim government/kingdom overlooking
911. I shuddered when I heard Rauf talk about "good" Christians and
Jews. There is so much America does not know about Islam!
Meanwhile Judge Phyllis Hamilton ruled our children could be
required to pray to Allah on their hands and knees in simulation of
Islam. They can be required to take Muslim names, fast for Ramadan,
all five pillars of Islam. Though our children’s bodies are acting out
the motions as their words speak praise to Allah, don’t worry, their
minds are free to believe what they want. Slaves have this sort of
freedom as well. Kathy Miller of the Texas Freedom Network, advocate
for religious freedom, must be fine and dandy with this. I suppose the
Associated Press is as well because they described her as advocating
religious freedom. Excuse me, Associated Press, but look closely. It’s
the Texas School Board that is advocating religious freedom!
Christians and Jews believe in the Ten Commandments, and God’s
FIRST Commandment is "You shall have no other gods before Me." Oh
wait, our multicultural teachers tell us it’s the same god, right?
Except if a Muslim converts to Christianity or Judaism, the penalty is
"Take heed that you are not snared and that you inquire not after
their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods?" (Deut.
Parents, stand up. Say something. Jesus said,
"Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess
before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men,
him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven." (Matthew
Love the Muslim but resist Islam. And please pray for the Texas
School Board. They are under serious attack while fighting to defend
