MARYLAND High School Punishes Christian Student For Refusing To Profess Her Faith In Islam, Threatens To Arrest Her Father For Making A Stink About It
A public high school has been accused of radical Islamic indoctrination by forcing non-Muslim children to profess the Muslim statement of faith (the same statement used to convert people to Islam), ordering them to memorize the Five Pillars of Islam, and teaching that the faith of a Muslim is stronger than the average Christian, according to a federal lawsuit just filed.
WND: A Maryland high school punished a student for refusing to profess faith in Islam, gave her failing grades for a series of assignments that violated her Christian beliefs, and then threatened her father with arrest for complaining, a federal lawsuit charges.
The suit was filed in U.S. District Court against the Charles County Public Schools in La Plata, Maryland, its board of education, Principal Evelyn Arnold, and Vice Principal Shannon Morris by the Thomas More Law Center.
Plaintiffs are Marine Corps veteran John Kevin Wood and his wife, Melissa, who “refused to allow their teenage daughter to be subjected to Islamic indoctrination and propaganda in her high school world history class.”
The lawsuit charges that the defendants’ “curriculum, practices, policies, actions, procedures, and customs promote the Islamic faith by requiring students to profess the five pillars if Islam.”
The students, the complaint says, were required to “write out and confess the shahada, the Islamic profession of faith.”
