Fresh from disappearing minorities, including Thurgood Marshall and Caesar Chavez from textbook – The Texas Textbook Taliban is at it again…
This time trying to disappear one of the world’s major religions… Islam.
Students in Texas may be getting a glorified view of Islam, according to some state education leaders who are pushing for a resolution that would denounce social studies textbooks as biased against Christianity.
Though the president of conservative-leaning Texas State Board of Educationsupports the measure as promotingreligious equality in schools, faith leaders and activists have condemned the board’s proposal as intolerant and anti-Muslim.
“It’s clearly just an attempt to propagandize the state’s student population against the faith of Islam,” said Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Washington D.C.-based Council on Islamic-American Relations. “Somehow they were getting too rosy a picture of Islam.”
The Texas Board of Dis-Education… A group of sanctimonious conservative twits taking child molestation to a whole new level.
