    Read some articles about schools and the teaching of Islam and removing pork from the school lunch menu etc., but Christian prayer is forbidden.

    I was taught that Freedom of Religion was in part the fact that you could keep to your own faith and ignore, yes ignore the other faiths that did not apply to your beliefs.

    Being forced to comply in order to respect a faith other than your own is not Freedom of Religion and shows a disrespect for the religion or non religion that you personally esteem.

    Respect for Freedom of Religion is shown by the fact that you can ignore another faith or belief and hold to your own beliefs and not be disrupted, punished or threatened.

    Freedom of Religion is not a forced concept. One should not be forced to respect another's religion. Tolerance comes with ignoring and disregarding of that which you choose not to believe whether it is a Faith or a non Faith.

    Ignoring and disregarding is something one has to do from within one's self and can not be forced upon one person by another. This is what makes our American brand of Freedom of Religion work and there is no other.

    This being an American concept and a Right bestowed by God one does not expect a foreign concept to understand. But it is not our place to esteem a foreign belief opposing our own.

    Hence, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridgeing the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people to peacefully assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

    Please note, "make no law respecting".

    We can only hope internet access makes it more difficult for schools to brainwash students into supporting Islam.

    If schools do this then they should be outed from the American public school system and instead be financed and supported by the international community or privately by Islam followers and seen for what they are.

    The Constitution is quite clear on this establish business. Promoting is part of establishing.


    Forced compliance or forced respect is not Freedom of Religion.

    From the article:


    "•Obama has destroyed the health insurance system that served 85% of the nation well in favor of the 15% who are uninsured (but covered anyway) in order to implement a socialistic, government controlled health care system. He has replaced the present system with an unworkable and expensive plan that rations health care, relegates seniors to oblivion by removing $716 Billion from Medicare, drives employers away from providing insurance for their employees, gives free insurance to illegal aliens, increases the federal bureaucracy by more than 100 new committees and agencies and federal employees by more than 16,000, and threatens to drive physicians out of the practice of medicine.
    •Although Obama has admitted his Muslim heritage and sympathy to various heads of state in the Middle East, he is now demonstrating it openly by favoring the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and cutting off military aid for the government that opposes them. "

    Comment: Whereas muslims do not ascribe to insurance because I recently read that muslims see insurance as 'a casting of lots' (gambling is forbidden) it makes sense that Obama would promote his plan.

    I still don't get it. Why does the establishment support Islam? What's in it for them? I know that they are not all Muslims themselves so why the favoritism towards Islam? What am I not seeing?

    I remember a couple of kids I went to school with. Because, of some strange religion their family belonged to they were not allowed to participate in any class parties in grammar school. So, their chairs were placed in the hallway, and there they sat while everyone else ate cookies and cupcakes. They were accommodated, much to their dismay.

    The library or the gym might have been a better solution.

    "The enemy of my enemy is my friend until my enemy is defeated"

    I think that right now the socialists and the islamics are in bed together because they both want to see the failure of Conservative, Capitalist, Christian America. What the liberal socialist fools cannot see coming is that the islamics have no respect for the liberals and will trample right over the top of them as soon as America falls as a world power.

    To the leftist handlers, Islam is just another tool to control their herd/mob mentality. It's been done with precision since the Russian revolution. To the lessor members of the herd, it's a way of becoming significant in a sea of morass.

    This system has been taught in our liberal colleges for over 80 years. While we capitalists have been distracted by meaningful, nation strengthening accomplishments and big profits, the liberals have been focused on control. We are now our own victims of inattention. Unintended consequences.

    The left bit a pig in the ass when they decided to embrace Islam. I can hardly wait to hear all the whining, hope I am still alive to laugh.
