Teaching Hate: Anti-Muslim Hate Speech Allowed In North Carolina Classroom

A North Carolina teacher allowed anti-Muslim hate speech to be preached to a class full of students.

A representative from the Kamil International Ministries Organization, a Christian group based in Raleigh, was invited by a teacher to come and speak to the class. He handed out literature class that compared the teachings of Jesus with accusations against Islam's Prophet Muhammad; Muslims Jesus as a prophet of God equal to the prophet Muhammad.

If a representative from a mosque was invited to speak in front of a classroom full of students, you can damn sure believe that there would be a huge uproar by the Christian parents. They would be bitching for eternity, and demanding that the teacher be fired, the principal of the school be fired, and the school board be fired.

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)

It warns women to not be lured into marrying a Muslim man, even for his "dark good looks, education, financial means, and the interest he shows in you."

"You may be excited that you found the 'tall, dark, and handsome man' you have been looking for. His sweet words and attention may blind you regarding the power, importance, and influence of his culture and Islamic faith," the pamphlet says. "Because in the United States, we have freedom of religion, he may agree that you can remain a Christian and you may think there will be no problem with such a marriage. But do not be fooled and become a victim of his religion, Islam, which has very oppressive rules regarding women's status and rights. Such marriages will never be out of trouble."

This group just proves how idiotic, ignorant, and asinine they truly are!! In case they haven't noticed, Muslims exist inside the United States. But I wouldn't expect these jackasses to know that!!

The school's principal, Beth Cochran, basically said 'we encourage the exchange of ideas and although what …[was] passed out was inappropriate, we welcome anyone from the Muslim community to come and talk to the students," Butte said.

I call bullshit on that comment!! Here's what I suspect would happen if someone from the "Muslim community" were to be invited to speak to students at this school. First off, a letter would be sent home to every parent informing them of the impending visit. Parents would bitch. The comments would range from how dare they invite Muslims to speak to our children, all the way up to the typical death/bomb threats. Permission slips would be sent home with students for their parents to sign, giving the student permission to listen to the speaker or denying permission. Parents would demand to be allowed to sit in on any speech. There would be a police presence at the school to calm any "tensions" that might arise. Instead of educating the students, it would turn into a totally one-sided hate session directed at the speaker.

I guarantee you that the teacher in question would be fired if it was a Muslim speaker, and the speaker would probably be thrown in jail. But since it's a Christian group, the teacher won't even get spoken to about it and absolutely nothing will happen to the speaker representing this group. Where's the outrage? Oh wait, why would there be any when it was Muslims who were trashed?
