US School In THIS State Forces Kids To Learn Islam, What These Moms Did Will Leave You SPEECHLESS!

Two New Jersey parents were outraged after their children were forced to take part in a middle school social studies lesson on Islam, while the other world religions were ignored.

Libby Hilsenrath and Nancy Gayer said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that they voiced their concerns about the instruction at Chatham Middle School at a school board meeting, but were rebuffed when they asked to meet with the superintendent in private.

Hilsenrath explained that as part of her child’s world cultures and geography class, students were instructed to describe the five pillars of Islam and were taught there is “no God but Allah” and that “Mohammed is the messenger.”

“I think it crosses the line, [teaching] one religion and not others,” Hilsenrath said, asking whether it would be appropriate to therefore recite that Jesus Christ is “the way, the truth and the light” and that “no one comes to God but through me.”

She and Gayer said they were labeled bigots and xenophobes after their appearance at the school board meeting, and Hilsenrath said her position was compared to that of the Ku Klux Klan.

Gayer said it was not the first time that the school stirred controversy regarding religion, recounting how her son inserted a short Bible quotation in a slideshow, but was unable to present to his class because the teacher pulled him aside to tell him such a mention “belongs in Sunday School.”

Hilsenrath said when she asked to meet with the superintendent, he told her the Curriculum Committee would look into the matter.

    I think you ladies have every right to disagree and not be labeled racist. I thought religion wasn’t taught in public schools, even if they’re teaching it in Social Studies. Kids can’t pray in school and the pledge of allegiance isn’t included in their day anymore. T
    What BS!

    I would take my children out of that school so quick. I WILL BE THE ONE TO TEACH MY CHILDREN RELIGION, NOT A SCHOOL. A school that is run by a bunch that pay no attention to what they are being taught. Kids would be better off staying at home even it they just learned their abc’s and how to print their names. My bible teaches that we should bring up our child in the way we want them to go and when they are old they will not depart from it……….being muslim is NOT the way we want them to go. You parents should all be raising cane at those schools doing this. And a teacher, whether muslim or not should not be teaching children religion of any kind.

    This situation blatantly violates the separation of church and state. Their children attend a PUBLIC school. Islam is a RELIGION. If this school is truly teaching about “world culture” the curriculum should be equitable, with all religions discussed in equal depth for each culture. It should be emphasized that in America’s culture, religion is a PERSONAL choice. My personal opinion is that this type of instruction is brainwashing. We all saw what happened in Germany with the promotion of “Hitler Youth”. How is this any different?

      I agree with these women and the statement above. If they are introducing world culture they need to make it equal with all religions! The school curriculum committee should be addressed by the Board not just the Superintendent. What is the matter with people today? Do they teach Christianity in Islam schools? I doubt it. In fact if a teacher did he/she would literally loose her head.

      Islam is a FALSE religion…evil religion…they will find out in the end!!!

      Hang in there….make a lot of noise, recruit other parents…is a lawsuit in order? Know any attorneys who will do it pro bono? Where is the separation of CHURCH AND STATE in this school’s curriculum? Chatham, NJ? What’s going on there?

    These two mothers have every right to state teaching this religion is wrong.

    When My Son was in first grade I was called in. Teacher told Me” No Mather how hard is the English for Me make sure speak only English At home”
    We are from Budapest , Hungary. Spent 8 mo. In an Italian refugee camp, before We lend it in America.
    Do u think the Mexican Mothers got called in too?
    No ! We higher Spanish speaking teachers!!!

    • Suzanne

      April 12, 2017 at 6:18 pm

      Etelka,
      That teacher is stupid! You SHOULD continue speaking your native language at home! Your children will benefit greatly from it in the long run. That teacher is only trying to make things easier for her in her classroom, not your child. I taught in an English speaking school in Germany and told the mothers to speak their native laguage to their children. The synapses in the brain are developing at a vast rate in young children and NOW is the time for them to learn a second language. Your children will soon have mastered two languages and the American children in their class will be very far behind when they start learning another language in high school, long after their brain synapses are developed and closed. You are doing the right thing, so do NOT let that teacher bully you!

    And that’s discrimination against other religions…which, BTW, are presently much peaceful and humanitarian. And, where is national media to broadcast this specific issue all over the country? No surprise hearing about desperate superintendents being too busy with saving their jobs by ignoring what really matters.

  16. Patricia Gernenz

    If this school is NOT DISCIPLINED then the super needs to be replaced with someone who cares about AMERICAN VALUES!! The teachers background should also be looked at in great detail we don not need terrorists to start BRAINWASHING our children in grade school!!! IT’S HAPPENING WAY TOO MUCH!!

    UPHOLD THE MCCARRAN WALTERS ACT OF 1952. THIS ACT WHICH IS STILL IN EFFECT TODAY STATES THAT NO ISLAMICS SHOULD EVER BE ALLOWED INTO THE USA

    They are bot teaching.. They are recruiting so that all the children will be Muslim sat the time of graduation. They are trying to destroy Christianity from within with the help of some of our stupidly and the insanity of our so called ” board of education.. The board has long since tried to tell us who and what our children can and can’t learn.. The board needs to be shut down and the teaching should be given back to the parents and local administration.. My children1.. They are now and always will be
    Christian..

    This is an outrage that Superintendent must be AFARID of the Muslims. He should be fired and that teaching of Islamic religion BANNED from any public school in AMERICA.

    This has no business being promoted in our schools. I would pull my kids out if nothing was done about it

    I personally support the McCarron Walters Act of 1952 which disallows Muslims to come into the United States and become citizens!

    I’m sure their are more parents that feel the same way, but are afraid to speak out. This how we list prayer in school, sat on our hands and said who would take prayer out of schools. Have you gone to the ministers in town and educated them of what is happening. More strength if you fill the room with people that disagree. What does the teacher feel about teaching this?

  23. Vicki Huse

    I agree with the parents, Libby Hilsenrath and Nancy Gayer, and encourage them to continue their work to allow the Chatham Middle School students equal access to information about the other world cultures. This information should be presented with equal detail in the class, after all it is a public school and the class description is world cultures.

    All children should be first and foremost about the place they live first.not about other people from other country’s alone.they need to gave parents a plan of what is going to be teach in that class and if they have any question they can talk to the teacher.because the class teaching is by the teacher and not the board of education.

    I just saw where they passed a law today, that any subject of religion has to be taught in history class when they are teaching about where different people are from. Solved that one. I think Trump signed something.Good for him.

  26. Carla Evans

    April 12, 2017 at 4:53 pm

    I totally agree with these brave women. Religion should not be taught in school. It should be taught in churches and in the home. If they teach one religion they should teach all.

  27. Paul A. Schwab

    April 14, 2017 at 1:33 pm

    WE HAD BETTER JOIN THESE BRAVE WOMEN AND FIGHT OUR, SO CALLED, EDUCATION SYSTEM. THEY MUST NOT CONTINUE DOING THIS TO OUR CHILDREN. IT STARTED OVER 100 YEARS AGO BY INFILTRATING THEIR GARBAGE IN THE SCHOOLS; NOW IT HAS MATERIALIZED INTO A NON-STOP ISLAMIC AGENDA. WAKE UP AMERICA AND PUT A STOP TO THIS. THEY THREW GOD OUT OF OUR SCHOOLS AND INTEND TO REPLACE HIM WITH ISLAM. WE MUST STOP THIS.

    That’s Common Core and it has a lot of Islamic indoctrination! Common Core is loaded with propaganda too. It needs to go. Period!

    FIRST OF ALL, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS CHURCH AND STATE. ALL RELIGIONS SHOULD BE ADDRESSED !!! THE DIFFERENCE WITH ALL RELIGIONS IS ” JESUS CHRIST “. HE WAS SEEN BY OVER 500 PEOPLE AFTER HR ROSE TO GOD. THE OTHER DIFFERENCE IS, ALL RELIGIONS WERE CREATED BY MAN, EXCEPT CHRISTIANITY. THAT WAS CREATED BY ” GOD “.

    I think that the mothers need to continue this to fight it all the way till they teach all religionsin the same or none of them at all… And shame on the school board superintendent for not taking the time to address this with them in depth and to follow up with them. The people of this county need to remember this when it comes to reelecting him, if he can ignore the perants on this what else is he ignoring????
