Parents Say Public School Forced Their Child to Convert to Islam

A public high school has been accused of radical Islamic indoctrination by forcing children to profess the Muslim statement of faith, 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 filed Wednesday.

Thomas More Law Center filed the lawsuit on behalf of John and Melissa Wood. They accuse La Plata High School in Maryland of subjecting their teenage daughter to Islamic indoctrination and propaganda. And when Mr. Wood complained – the school banned him from campus.

“Defendants forced Wood’s daughter to disparage her Christian faith by reciting the Shahada, and acknowledging Mohammed as her spiritual leader,” Thomas More president Richard Thompson said.

The Shahada is the Islamic Creed, “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah” . . .

If La Plata High School wanted to teach children about jihad, they should’ve replayed the video footage of what happened on September 11, 2001 – or the Boston Marathon bombing – or the San Bernardino massacre or the Chattanooga attacks.

    And a public school is teaching religion, why? Get it right, vote right, don’t be left by voting left for a continuation of “I can ’cause I’m a Democrat, you can’t because you’re not in the Dem club, nanny-nanny-poo-poo.” This must be reason 899, 999 to vote for a God-fearing American to be president of the USA.

    Liberals think bending over to the muslims will keep them safe as they work their plan to destroy the western culture. We’ll see how that works when the muslims throw Ellen and Kaitlyn Jenner off the top of the Hollywood sign.

    This seems to be slightly distorted. It’s undeniably wrong to oblige any student to “confess” that Mohammed was “the messenger of God”. But to oblige students to know something about Islam — its five pillars, its statement of faith, and its history — only makes sense.

    Islam’s influence upon the West and the world has been destructive but significant: we should know our enemies, as well as ourselves and our friends. (Especially in a democracy, citizens must be well-informed. Look at the government we suffer under now: this is largely a result of ignoramusses voting for it!)

    Sadly, the faith of the average Moslem, ill-educated though he may be, does seem to be much stronger that of the average “Christian” (I refer to the typical Westerner, who is Christian only in name — if even that, now). In the end, only Christ Jesus brings hope or joy to anyone, anywhere, whether Christian or Moslem or nothing at all.

    Radical Islam is in reality fundamental Islam. The more that Muslims follow ALL the teachings of Islam the more radical and violent they become. The current terror atrocities including beheading, sexual attacks, slavery, crucifixions, burning people alive and acts of genocide are the result of another outbreak of this virus. These are tenets that are in writing in Islamic texts and widely believed by Muslims to be justified while forcing Islam on the rest of the world.

    It is like a virus that can never be totally eliminated as long as the violent tenets still exist in Islam. It springs up in a population and then when you think it has been defeated it springs up again and again. This has occurred ever since Islam was created by Mohammed.

    The question that needs to be faced is how can the virus be totally eliminated?

    The first fact that MUST be accepted is that tenets within Islam itself are the cause of these viral upheavals.

    There are many that refuse to even consider the answer to the question above because the solution is brutal and will result in massive expenditures of blood and treasure. The alternative is half measures that will guarantee a conflict that will never end.

    I do not believe the rest of the world should sit back and accept the current outbreak or wait for the next viral outbreak. Every time is rears up it needs to be totally eradicated without any mercy. If that is not done there is no solution other than the destruction of Islam itself or a never ending state of war between Islam and the rest of the world.

    Being taught about Islam is not the same as forced conversion. We, as a society, can only improve by learning about other people. Through learning comes understanding. These militant parents objecting to learning about others are continuing the fear and hatred of the unknown. We cannot progress as individuals or as a nation without respect for others.
