It does matter what it says. It amazes me how so many atheists are tolerant and PC when it comes to islam.

I find that most atheists are more strongly against Christianity because thats who they have been arguing with for so long.

I see it in my local chapters of the FFRF and American Atheist groups. These guys have a fit if ANYTHING christian happens at a public school. I mean they go nuts. But if it's something to do with Islam they don't really care. They shrug it off and say something like "well they're just trying to teach the kids about culture." I don't think these guys are secret Muslims, they're just anti christian because they've been around Christianity more, or used to battling the loud Christians on forums and in debates. Also I think it has something to do with trying to be so anti racism that they won't even criticize anyone non-white for fear of being labeled racist.

I find saying, what it says matters Is more "pc" of a choice. Than saying what purpose involved would make that thing?

Nonsense. If you think this is PC, you have no clue what that term actually means.

Without looking at the content, I can see how an uninformed observer can say that. However, there is little to no PC about me or my viewpoints.

It was not inappropriate but the phrase was ill-advised. It might have been better to find a sentence from, say, one of the Ali Baba stories. I realize availability could be an issue, but there are mosques all over the country and I'm sure it would be easy to find an imam who could supply something acceptable.

How does that make me "tolerant and PC when it comes to islam"?

When I first read this story I thought it included the translation. But, you're right and it doesn't. It simple says it's the Islamic statement of faith.

I can't believe we're even debating the insanity of what happened.

I bet the parents wouldn't have had a problem with this (if they even fucking knew what it says). They probably think that's Arabic as well. Idiots.

This kinda shit don't happen in PG County.

We close schools for holidays I ain't even heard of. Eid al-Fitr, Eid al-Adha and Diwali in addition to Yom Kippur, Passover, Christmas, and Election Day.

If you can read then you can clearly see that it says it's the islamic statement of faith. It doesn't have to be spelled out word for word.

What if the calligraphy said "death to America"? Would you still feel the same? The kids wouldn't know the difference so it's ok right?
