RE: Schools in Augusta, VA close down because morons.
Isn't it amazing what fear does to people?


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

This goes too far. I don't care what religion it is. I'd be just as pissed if my kid was forced to write "Jesus is the only God and Abraham is his messenger."

These parents have every right to be pissed about this happening in public schools. And atheists should be right there with these parents, not siding with Muslim apologists.

How many of those students do you suppose can read Arabic? Consider

It's a fucking calligraphy exercise.

See, I have no problem with it. They're studying religions of the world, in a world geography class. I'm not worried about an assignment trying to convert my kids. Given the context of the class, it's appropriate.

I would have a problem if were a math or science class, or even English class doing this.

And, it's a single fucking sentence.

Seriously, I don't know how Helmet is able to leave the house each day and overcome the fear that today is the day the terrorists win.

Why are they practicing calligraphy in geography class? Why that choice of words? Why not something secular in Arabic?

First, I'm flattered but I doubt it.

Second, I do and I think you're a fool for believing it.

This has fuck all to do with "Muslim apologists". It's a single sentence and the point of the assignment was to focus on the writing and the culture. They used a sentence that is pertinent to the culture being studied. It's not in any way an endorsement of religion or some kind of pro Muslim propaganda.

And, I reject the notion that the sentence was inappropriate because people are idiots. But, that said, while I think the reaction here is beyond ridiculous, it was also predictable.

Of all the things that could have been chosen to be written, the Muslim declaration was all they could think of?

This is acceptable to you?

Well it isn't to me. I've raised hell for less at my kids school when they try to sneak something christian in.

Now I can't speak for the parents in this case. Maybe it is about the Islam element for them. For me its about religion in school. Any religion.
