    I like my pie and I ain’t about to share with some slacker who won’t make the extra effort to bake a pie of his own.

    Whats that.. Islam being pushed at a Muslim public school?? Unpossible..

    Wall of silence broken at state's Muslim public school

    It shares the headquarters building of the Muslim American Society of Minnesota, whose mission is "establishing Islam in Minnesota."

    ....

    Why does the Minnesota Department of Education allow this sort of religious activity at a public school? According to Zaman, the department inspects TIZA regularly -- and has done so "numerous times" -- to ensure that it is not a religious school.

    But the department's records document only three site visits to TIZA in five years -- two in 2003-04 and one in 2007, according to Assistant Commissioner Morgan Brown. None of the visits focused specifically on religious practices.
    The MAS.. see CAIR carbon copy.

    Awww: Class trip to mosque teaches 10-year-olds that they’re “dogs”

    They wanted a lesson in tolerance, and man, did they get one. I’m guessing the students were mostly Christian as there’s no report of anyone being called a “pig” or “ape.”

    A primary school in Amsterdam wished to provide its pupils with an understanding for other cultures. But during a visit to a mosque, the children were told they were dogs.

    With a view to developing understanding and respect for other cultures among children, primary school De Horizon regularly organises outings to various religious organisations. The chairman of the El Mouchidine mosque told the children from group 7 (aged 10) and their chaperones however that non-Muslims are dogs.

    In a letter to the children’s parents, the school expresses its regret at the incident: “We are shocked that during the guided tour, the mosque’s chairman told the children and chaperoning parents that non believers were dogs. We consider this statement as unacceptable since we allow our children to partake in this project to develop respect for freedom of religious choice“.
    Is this respect mutual? The Saudis did almost consider lifting the total ban on religious freedom within the Kingdom recently. Almost.
    That one way street named "tolerance"...

    There’s nothing like the smell of puppy breath.

    Casey looks like a German Shepherd. They’re excellent dogs I’ve owned two both are in doggy heaven.

    Cute puppy!

    Finally! When a High School student finds something that teaches him something different than what he already knows... he calls for the removal of the offnding textbook! And fortunately, the publisher is working to edit the offending passages.

    When, oh WHEN will they realize that High School Students are to be nurtured, not instructed! Oh, woe....

    What a mess this has turned into.

    I guess my complaint is this could have been handled
    in a better way. Yet I understand the airlines reaction to threats of fines
