“The district is running roughshod over the First Amendment’s mandate…”
A school district in Seattle has sent out a letter asking teachers to bless its Muslim students in Arabic during the month of Ramadan and give them preferential treatment, such as obtaining dispensations for classes and exams…
…the religious liberty legal defense group Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF)… said in a statement that the Seattle-area school district is violating teachers’ First Amendment rights by exerting pressure upon them to engage in religious speech with which they do not agree….arguing…that the district would never advise teachers to accommodate Christian students in such a similar manner.
Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director for CAIR, denounced the potential lawsuit….as a “sign of the growing Islamophobia in our nation that showing respect for and accommodating the religious traditions of Muslim students could result in punitive legal action.”…..
The FCDF complaint goes beyond just mere accommodation of Muslim students by the school district, arguing that CAIR’s mission is to raise Ramadan to the equivalence of Christmas on the school calendar, thereby disrupting the academic schedule.
Incrementalism. Acid to dissolve the American culture.
