FOXNews reported "First of all, it slanders, things like, Mohammed is a 'criminal,'
Is Muhammad a "thing", or is that phrase something that can be slandered? I know what you meant to say ,but that is not what you said.is 'demon possessed' ... that just made my blood boil," said Triaq Butte, whose daughter, Saira, participated in a ninth grade orientation seminar at Enloe High School in Wake County, N.C., where the material was distributed. Butte is a non-practicing Muslim; he said his wife is Christian and his children are taught to accept and respect all religions.
If he was a practicing Muslim I suspect he would feel differently."So for a person like me to feel like that — I've never been to a mosque — to feel like that … for me to feel such hideous attacks, they were not just pointing out failures or weaknesses in Islam or Muslims, they were just attacking."
If that was what they said, I would agree with you, but that is not born out by theexample presented in the aritcle.Among the materials handed out was a pamphlet called "Jesus not Muhammad," as well as one entitled, "Do Not Marry a Muslim Man." The latter pamphlet compares parts of the Koran with those of the Bible, such as:
- "Husband, beat your wives and deny them sex." (The book of Islam, Koran 4:34)
- "Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the Church and gave Himself for her." (The Holy Bible, Ephesians 5:25)
The quotes are both accurate, and based on them, the warning is a good one..... The Council on American-Islamic Relations wrote to superintendent of the Wake County Public School System, asking for an apology to the students, disciplinary action against the teacher, a review of policies regarding what outside speakers are allowed to say in class, and more diversity training.
This presentation may well have been in response to some of the teaching pushing Islam we have read about."It is unconscionable for a teacher at any public school to abuse his or her position of trust by forcing such hate-filled, inaccurate and intolerant materials on students," CAIR Legal Director Arsalan Iftikhar wrote in the letter.
Is the Qur'an quote incorrect???
