One God Is Bad While Another Is Good

Read this. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the most Liberal court in the country, has ruled in the past that saying the phrase "under God" in the pledge while in school was unconstittutional has ruled that it's okay for kids, in those same schools, to recite such phrases as In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful and Allah is the only true God and Muhammad is his messenger under the guise of "teaching children about another culture". Love that political correctness garbage.

I'm pretty certain that you'll find that they ruled it unconstitutional to be forced to say "under God", which is significantly different.

Actually, no one was ever forced to say under God and it's not different it's hypocritical.

All I can say is... I am a teacher in a very large public school with plenty of Muslim students. The fears you have are just unfounded. If anything Muslim students want to blend in - AND they do their prayers on their own time just as my Christian students do.

Much to do about NOTHING.

My bad. The original case was that it was unconstitutional for children to say the pledge of allegiance at public schools, because it violated their right to be "free from a coercive requirement to affirm God".

So it wasn't that "under God" was unconstitutional, it's just that it was unconstitutional to make all children in public schools say that God is real.

And in the case our esteemed Opinion cites, it is talking about role-playing. They're not being forced to accept that Allah is real - they're pretending to be Muslims to get to understand the religion.

It's a teaching method for heaven's sake!

John K said...

Yea Za, Try that same teaching method but insert Christianity. The ACLU will be all over your arse for seperation of church and state. You need examples? Got over 100 links to articles Iam ready to shove up your...

Za said...

Go right ahead with the links - I'm willing to be that none of them are to do with teaching what Christianity is about, but rather forcing children to pray or acknowledge Christianity as correct (or science).

John K said...

Nevermind.. you would still follow that line of reasoning unable to see the point of the aurgument.

Za said...

The point of the argument is you're trying to compare people pretending to be Muslims to people being forced to acknowledge something they don't actually believe in.

Role-playing doesn't compare to indoctrination, sorry.
