Pennsylvania Public School Teachers Attend Mosque To Better Serve Muslim Students
The Lebanon High School faculty taxpayer-funded trip to a local mosque.

A group of teachers, faculty and administrators from a public school district in Pennsylvania took a full day trip to a mosque to learn about the religion of Islam, watch a worship service and ways they can better serve and accommodate the Muslim students in their schools. This type of trip is yet another example of the growing push to make all manner of exceptions for Islamic students while at the same time pushing the Bible and Christian expression out of schools.
An All-Day Public School Trip For Islam
The school district of Lebanon Valley, Pennsylvania sponsored a trip for its teachers and administration to a local mosque to learn about the religion of Islam. The group, which included the superintendent of the district, wanted training to better serve the Muslim students attending their public schools.
According to sources:
To bridge that cultural divide, about 50 district staff members attended an in-service workshop on Monday that included a trip to the Lebanon Valley Mosque. While there they learned about the practice of Islam, watched an afternoon Muslim prayer service and where treated to a lunch of Moroccan cuisine.
It was the second year that the workshop was offered to the staff, according to Fred Shattls, director of the district’s English as a Second Language department. The workshop was led by Mohamed Omar, a former teacher’s aide and Arabic translator for the district who also served a year as president of the mosque…The workshop began at the high school where Omar spoke about the histories and cultures of several Arab countries and the differences in their educational systems to that in the U.S.
At noon, the teachers took a bus to the mosque, located not far away at 13th and Florence streets. Following Islamic practice, each took off their shoes before entering the prayer room where they took a seat on a maroon-colored carpet with intricate designs. (source).

At the mosque teachers and staff were able to ask about the religious practices of Muslim students and how to fit them into the school day.  All of this was done to incorporate Muslim worship and show respect for the religious beliefs of the Muslim students at the public schools in the area.
A Blatant Double Standard

The faculty Islamic field trip was just one of numerous examples of public schools catering to Muslim students while shunning Christianity and restricting the free speech of Christian students. Below are just a few examples where students who believe in The Lord Jesus Christ found their right of free expression restricted:
  • A Canadian High school student was suspended for five days for wearing a t-shirt that read “Life Is Wasted Without Jesus.” (source).
  • A 16-year old California student was suspended after refusing his public school’s orders to stop talking about his new-found Christian faith and bringing his Bible to school. (source).
  • A 10-year old student assigned to write an essay about anyone she admired was told that her essay about looking up to God would not be accepted and was ordered to remove the essay from school grounds. (source).
  • At various high schools across the United States, High School valedictorians have been told by schools they were not permitted to discuss their Christian faith or even mention Jesus Christ in their graduation speeches. (source).

In all these incidents the public schools justified their actions against Christian students on the basis of “separation of church” and state – the notion that a public school should never accommodate or promote a religious belief. At the same time public schools  have gone out of their way to cater to the Muslim religion. One public high school provided an all-girls prom for Muslims in accordance with Islamic teachings on female etiquette. A San Diego elementary school created an extra recess period to give Muslim children more time to pray. A Michigan High School football team moved its practices to midnight in order for students fasting for the Islamic holiday of Ramadan to be able to eat and drink water at night (when the religion permits it). High school students were kept at practice until 3AM (then having to return to school for class the next morning between 7:30-8:00AM) all in the name of religious observance. Many public universities offer prayer rooms, foot baths and Muslim ritually approved food. Why are there no complaints about “separation” of church and state when it comes to the special treatment for Muslim students at public institutions?

Even teachings of Islam are promoted in public schools. At a Texas public school a teacher dressed girls up in Islamic burqas and taught a lesson that stated Allah is “the Almighty God” and referred to Islamic terrorists as “freedom fighters”. (source).
Pray for the public school system and its agenda which is clearly hostile to Biblical Christianity while catering to Islam. If school leaders are going to visit mosques during work hours, pray that taxpayer money start paying for visits to churches as well. As society moves farther away from the Bible and grows more hostile towards Jesus Christ and the Gospel, Christians and Bible-believing churches need to be that much more outspoken in sharing their faith whether the public school system supports it or not.

Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. – Jude 1:3.

Fairfax County School Board Votes To Include Gender Identity Issues Into Their Curriculum

Fairfax County School Board Votes To Include Gender Identity Issues Into Their Curriculum

School Board adding transgender topic to 7th grade class

Editor’s Note: It’s past time to remove your children from public (and almost all private) schools. Also notice how the sodomite loving reporter gives the last word to the sodomites.
The Fairfax County School Board has approved expanding the school system’s sex education curriculum to include teaching teenagers in grades 7 through 10 about gender identity and transgender issues.
The 10-to-2 vote Thursday night came amid shouts of anger and howls of frustration from a raucous crowd that largely stood in opposition to the curriculum changes.
The board’s decision centered on changes to the Family Life Education curriculum across all grades. The revisions included adding lessons on gender issues for middle and high school students. But some of those who opposed the changes questioned whether the revisions would trickle down to the lower grades.
Opponents also expressed concern that some of the revisions would move certain sensitive lessons out of the Family Life Education curriculum and into health class, which would remove parents’ ability to opt-out their children from learning the material. The health class is a required course; Family Life Education is not.
Andrea Lafferty, a Fairfax resident who is president of the Traditional Values Coalition, a conservative lobbying group, described the lesson changes as overreach by the School Board.
“Parents: Do you want your children in kindergarten to hear about same-sex marriage under the guise of families?” Lafferty asked.
Many in the crowd responded loudly: “No.”
The vote came a day before the U.S. Supreme Court voted 5 to 4 to allow gay marriage in all 50 states. In May, the School Board voted to expand the school system’s anti-discrimination policy to include protections for transgender students and staff.
In video testimony played at the meeting, Adam Hiatt said the curriculum changes should not be approved because they would go “against the teaching and faith of most major world religions.”
“Today’s version of the Nazi Germany description would be something like this: ‘First they came for traditional marriage, and I did not speak out because I wanted to be tolerant,” Hiatt said. “Then they came for the children in our schools, and I did not speak out. . . . Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me.”
In response to vehement opposition that board members received via e-mail, the board appeared prepared to delay voting on the issue until July. Board member Patty Reed (Providence) offered a proposal to wait a month before voting on the new curriculum. Board member Elizabeth Schultz (Springfield) brought up a motion to table the matter until a later date.
At the last minute, the board moved ahead and overwhelmingly voted in support of the lesson changes, with Reed and Schultz the only votes against the new curriculum. In a slight concession, the board also voted to move some of the earlier proposed lessons back to their original place in the Family Life Education curriculum, allowing parental opt-outs for children.
Robert Rigby, adviser to the West Potomac High School student lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender group, said he was proud that the School Board voted to approve the curriculum changes.
“The unruly crowd seemed to be trying to bully the School Board,” Rigby said.
“But the board showed the same courage in the face of those shouts that it showed in May, when it voted to add gender identity to the FCPS anti-discrimination policy.”


Supreme Corruption, Conflict of Interest & Power Grab

It’s not just the big decisions of last week on ObamaCare & marriage. In the last few days the Supreme Court has released a flurry of decisions affecting a multitude of issues. As Scalia pointed out, the “rulers of 320 million Americans” are the majority of 9 politically appointed judges.

Supreme Court Refusal Protects 

Illegal Immigrants' "Right to Vote"

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:

Yet another rejection of constitutional principles by the Supreme Court has been overlooked in the furor over the pro-Obamacare and same-sex marriage decisions.
This time, it’s not what the justices said, but what they refused to say that is noteworthy.
Reuters reports that the high court’s refusal to hear an appeal of the decision in the case of Kobach, et al. v. Election Assistance Commission, et al, had the effect of upholding the ruling handed down last November by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.
The Kansas City Star provided the following summary of the facts of the case:
The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver ruled that Kansas cannot require proof-of-citizenship documents — almost always a birth certificate or passport — from prospective voters who register using a federal voter registration form. The court also said that a federal agency doesn’t have to alter the form to fit Kansas requirements.
Arizona has a similar proof-of-citzenship requirement, and Kobach argued the case on behalf of both states in conjunction with Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett.
In other words, individuals showing up to the polls in Arizona and Kansas can no longer be required to demonstrate proof of U.S. citizenship, opening the ballot box to illegal immigrants.
Daily Caller reported on the president’s support of the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear the appeal: "Both the Obama administration and various voter-rights groups — including the League of Women Voters and the League of United Latin-American Citizens — urged the Supreme Court not the hear the case, and SCOTUS’ rejection marks what Bloomberg called a landmark victory for the 'groups that battled the two states in court.'"
Roll Call similarly recorded the glee of those opposed to the higher Arizona and Kansas eligibility standards:
In a joint statement, the League of Women Voters of Arizona and Kansas and the Brennan Center for Justice praised the court for “reaffirming the important role Congress plays in preserving a fair voter registration process across the country.” The LWV, represented by the Brennan Center and several law firms, was a defendant in the case with the EAC.
“This is an important win for the National Voter Registration Act and an important step forward in making sure that all that are eligible are registered to vote,” President of the League of Women Voters of the U.S. Elisabeth MacNamara said in a statement.
The Kansas secretary of state isn’t convinced that the Supreme Court can interfere with the state’s imposition of voter registration requirements. Again, from Daily Caller:
“Our position in court is that we’re exercising our state’s right to define the qualifications of electors,” Kobach told CQ Roll Call Monday afternoon. “By creating this loophole, the federal agency is interfering,” he said in reference to the EAC.
Kobach emphasized the court’s decision not to review the case does not reflect its opinion on the issues of the case.
“The Supreme Court decision not to review was not particularly surprising given the fact that there was no circuit split yet,” he said.
Typically, Kobach continued, “the Supreme Court favors reviewing decisions where one circuit has gone one way and another circuit has gone another way. It appears that the Supreme Court is waiting for another circuit to weigh in.” He expects the 11th Circuit, which he said has jurisdiction over two states with similar proof-of-citizenship laws, to eventually get involved.
Kobach is right.
The very idea that the federal government should have power over the voter rolls is anathema to the Constitution. Article I, Section 4 clearly mandates that, "The times, places, and manner of holding elections for senators and representatives, shall be prescribed in each state by the legislature thereof."
The voter eligibility issue isn’t Kobach’s first foray into fighting the federal government.
In 2013, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder sent a letter to Kansas Governor Sam Brownback informing him that the Obama administration would ignore a Kansas law nullifying federal gun control laws. Furthermore, Holder warned the governor that federal agents would “take all appropriate actions” to enforce federal gun control laws, calling the Kansas statute “unconstitutional.”
In an interview with Fox News conducted after receiving Holder’s threat, Kobach laid out his state’s position.
“We are very, very confident of our position,” he said. “The state of Kansas is not in any way afraid of a legal challenge.”
With his stance on the proof of citizenship voting requirement, Kobach shows he’s committed to keeping his word.
As for why he is willing to fight so hard to hold on to the citizenship standard for voting, Kobach said, “Every time an alien votes, it may not steal an election, but it will cancel out a vote of a U.S. citizen.”
The Founders shared Kobach’s dedication to maintaining the integrity of the ballot. In 1763, John Adams wrote:
We electors have an important constitutional power placed in our hands; we have a check upon two branches of the legislature ... the power I mean of electing at stated periods [each] branch.... It becomes necessary to every [citizen] then, to be in some degree a statesman, and to examine and judge for himself of the tendency of political principles and measures. Let us examine, then, with a sober, a manly ... and a Christian spirit; let us neglect all party [loyalty] and advert to facts; let us believe no man to be infallible or impeccable in government any more than in religion; take no man’s word against evidence, nor implicitly adopt the sentiments of others who may be deceived themselves, or may be interested in deceiving us.
Sam Adams shared his cousin’s opinion: "Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual — or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country."
Alexander Hamilton declared, "A share in the sovereignty of the state, which is exercised by the citizens at large, in voting at elections is one of the most important rights of the subject, and in a republic ought to stand foremost in the estimation of the law."
Finally, Thomas Jefferson said, "The elective franchise, if guarded as the ark of our safety, will peaceably dissipate all combinations to subvert a Constitution, dictated by the wisdom, and resting on the will of the people."
The Supreme Court’s refusal to consider the Kobach case could be considered part of a larger “combination to subvert” our Constitution. If those who have no legal status in the United States are allowed to share suffrage with citizens, there is a good chance that candidates promising more “bread” and free tickets to the federal “circuses” will be elected.
State authority to set the manner of elections must be protected, if not by the Supreme Court then by the supreme sovereign: the people.
