  • Marine Banned From Daughter's Graduation Over Islamic Lessons

    John Kevin Wood and his wife, Melissa, say their daughter's lessons on Islam violated her civil rights.
    A Marine veteran claims he was barred from attending his daughter’s June graduation because he objected to what he saw as the school’s promotion of Islam and -- after voicing his concern to the school -- was issued a no-trespass order, The Washington Post reported.
    John Kevin Wood, the ex-Marine, reportedly said that in 2014 one of his daughter's classes required that she memorize the Five Pillars of Islam and recite the shahada, which is also known as the Muslim statement of faith that includes, “There is no God but Allah.” School papers were submitted to a federal court that allege — among other statements — one included that Muslims’ faith is “stronger than the average Christian.”
    Wood's daughter completed the class, but refused to submit the assignments that focused on Islam and received zeroes on them, which hurt her overall GPA, a spokeswoman from the Thomas Moore Law Center told FoxNews.com. She is set to graduate on June 4, but Wood may still be barred.
    “The First Amendment prohibits the promotion of the religion of Islam over other faiths, such as Christianity or Judaism, in our public schools,” a federal complaint reportedly stated.
    Officials from La Plata High School in Charles County, Md., due to the pending litigation, could not comment on this particular case, but said that the 2014 assignment that Wood objected to was in a World History class that was intended to focus on Middle Eastern empires. The curriculum also reportedly touched on Christianity and Buddhism to name a few.
    Wood submitted classroom materials that he says shows the lessons violate the girl’s civil rights. One item stresses that “Islam, at heart, is a peaceful religion” and that jihad is “a holy war waged on behalf of Islam as a religious duty; a personal struggle in devotion to Islam especially involving spiritual discipline.”

        This isn't a problem that was caused by Obama, but rather apologists for Islam who are following the line Progressives (in particular) are using regarding that religion.

        This is the "Muslims are just misunderstood..." line of thinking, the "They'll stop fighting if the world understands and accommodates their religion..."

        I wonder if this class on World History emphasizing the Middle East included discussion of the Muslim invasion of Europe from the 7th to 12th Centuries that resulted in the Crusades, or if the Crusades alone were discussed in a mostly or entirely negative light...

          Islam is insidious and must be uprooted.

                  I'm still waiting for you to tell me where I brought up race in the other thread... Don't worry, I don't expect an answer.

                    Hi

                    He was banned from the school grounds for making threats against the school
                    https://www.thomasmore.org/wp-conten...SS-ORDER-2.pdf

                    I've not read anywhere about what the specific threats were or if Wood has denied making such threats.

                    By all means use your 1st Amendment rights, which he did, but dependent upon the exact specifics of the 'threats' made, then don't then whine if there are consequences for saying whatever ever you said!

                    Regards

                      That looks like the makings of a law suit to me. Unspecified "verbal threats?" That isn't going to pan out too well in court.

                        You are incorrect: Obama is the primary Muslim apologist for the entire United States of America, and is therefore the root cause of the problem.

                          Muslims are simply one symptom, not the cause, of what is wrong in the world at present.

                          The fact that Muslim nations currently tend to be more angry than others is down to history. Compared to Christian nations a Millennium ago, Muslim nations were usually more peaceful, more prosperous and certainly more educated than European Christian nations.

                          The world has turned.

                          The only way towards a happy world is a prosperous world.

                            You don't get to 62K posts by writing out opinions or well reasoned arguments. That takes too much time. Red pip incoming...

                              Hi TAG

                              Given the nature of the form, it doesn't lend itself to detail, though you would hope that they've written down or maybe got recordings of any 'threats' made!
