So I have been seeing a lot of post lately about Islam being taught in schools. Personally all religions will be covered at some point because its a part of history,thats just plain facts. Religion has shaped our world in some many ways from how we think to how we treat people in our society.
So the picture above is a photo of a 7th grader homework assignment. The writing is by the mother who is upset at the fact that her child is learning about another religion. The funny thing is she complains about Christianity not being taught when it actually is
This photo is a screenshot of the chapters in the 7th graders textbook. Chapter 12 says its about the reformation of christianity but the religion does not start there, christianity will most likely be discussed in the first chapter along with the fall of rome, the middle ages, the reinassance the scientific revolution,early Americas all the way to chapter 17. So for this mother to write this on her childs homework I am guessing must have either not been paying attention to her childs assignments or wants her child to be a close minded individual. No one is forcing these children to become muslims or to start practicing islam,but religion is ingrained into our society and if it wasn’t then why are so many christians getting upset at the thought of their child or America being introduce to a new religion? Many aspects of America culture is influenced by christian ideals point blank period. I mean more oeople in the USA know more about God and the bible despite many not attending church or actually reading the Bible. However America is not a christian country, this wonderful melting pot of culture and religion has no national religion or national language. Despite what many christians believe they are actually the majority in this country and all other religions are just trying to let their voices be heard. I mean if christians want a complete christian nation then you might as well close the American borders and outlaw other faiths because with different cultures come different faiths and that is something you must tolerate. You dont have to agree with it but just let people be cause so far the only ones I see mostly getting upset about gay marriage, other religions being taught in school,premartial sex,abortion is christians. Other religions have their stance on these issues as well but they are not as vocal as the christian population.
