Remember when liberals used to pat themselves on the back for being champions of separation of church and state, as laid out in the First Amendment?
Remember when they proudly wore atheism like a medal of honor and condemned Christianity as blasphemy against Science (with a captial ‘S’)?
At least back then they didn’t appear so hypocritical.
These days, liberals still act like Christianity is evil and oppressive, but they simultaneously support the religion that is perhaps the most truly patriarchal, tyrannical belief system in the world!
We’re talking about Islam, of course.
The so-called “religion of peace” seems to go against everything today’s liberals claim to believe, but for some reason they encourage it.
The left’s most recent, and I do say rather shocking and scary, attempt to force their admiration of Islam onto the rest of us allegedly occurred within a school district in Seattle, Washington.
The Dieringer School District has come under fire from Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, a religious liberty organization, who accused the district of telling their teachers to bless their Muslim students in the Arabic language and give them special treatment during Ramadan.
Take a look at news of this that is being shared on Twitter:
Rightfully so, in response to this news, many apalled Twitter users have called out the left's blatant hypocrisy with regards to their views and policies regarding separation of church and state.
Check it out:
Fox News has more to say:
A religious liberty advocacy group is threatening to slap a Seattle-area school district with a lawsuit claiming the district has urged teachers to bless Muslim students in Arabic during the holy month of Ramadan and give them preferential treatment, including skipping tests.
The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF) claims the Dieringer School District is officially endorsing Islam and is following a script by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) that urges schools to make special accommodations for Muslim students and to wish them "Ramadan Mubarak," which means "Happy Ramadan," or "Ramadan Kareem," which means "Have a generous Ramadan."
The CAIR guidelines also instruct teachers to monitor Muslim students fasting and suggests teachers not schedule any tests on the Islamic holidays of Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha.
“By urging teachers to bless Muslim students in Arabic, the district is running roughshod over the First Amendment’s mandate of government neutrality toward religion,” said Daniel Piedra, FCDF’s executive director. “A school district would never order teachers to ‘welcome’ Catholic students during Easter with ‘He is risen, alleluia!’ Singling out Muslim students for special treatment is blatantly unconstitutional.”
The defense fund claims Dieringer Superintendent Judy Martinson blindly followed the recommendations of CAIR and "enacted the letter as official district policy." The defense fund sent Martinson a letter stating their complaints after a teacher and parent complained about the new procedure.
The May 6 letter also warned Martinson about CAIR's anti-semitic advocacy and alleged ties to radical Islamists, which the group has long denied.
Martinson did not respond to Fox News' request for comment. However, she put out a statement to members of the school district later Tuesday, writing: "The Dieringer School District has not and would not violate the First Amendment by endorsing any religious observations. Be assured that we respect the personal beliefs of you and your family."
Fox News also has obtained a March 14 email from Martinson's official account to district officials including school principals, forwarding a CAIR letter with suggested guidelines for schools.
Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director for CAIR, the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, told Fox News the pushback from FCDF was a "sign of the growing Islamophobia in our nation that showing respect for and accommodating the religious traditions of Muslim students could result in punitive legal action."
The Washington Times also commented:
A religious liberty advocacy group warned a Seattle-area school district Monday that it faces a lawsuit unless it revokes a letter sent to schools urging them to offer children an Arabic greeting for Ramadan, the Muslim holy month that has just begun.
Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund says the Dieringer School District is following a script laid out by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) that urged schools to make special accommodations, including altering testing times and wishing students “Ramadan Mubarak” or “Ramadan Kareem.”
The defense fund says Dieringer Superintendent Judy Martinson “enacted the letter as official district policy” by distributing it to principals, who in turn issued it to teachers.
A while back, it was unheard of for some students to be treated better in the classroom than others on the basis of religion.
If that ever did happen, it would be universally held in contempt!
But now, according to the left, NOT giving special treatment to students who are a certain religion is Islamophobic and hateful.
It's completely absurd, blatant indoctrination of our youth, and it needs to be stopped in its tracks.
At least this time, the FCDF was alerted and is taking action.
We can only hope that Islamophilic policies like this will always be met with equal force from defenders of liberty to stamp out disregard for our rights as American people, regardless of what religion we do or do not follow.
