Marine Gets Banned for Complaining About Pro-Islam Lesson
The two links above are just a sampling of issues popping up in schools all over the US regarding religion. The theme seems similar across all the stories: It’s okay to teach and advocate for religion, as long as it’s Islam, not Christianity. I’m not going to rant about separation of church and state (that phrase does not exist in the US constitution). What does bother us here at Mirused is seeing such an asymmetrical balance. The United States were founded on certain specific principles. Among them was that of acceptance of varying and different beliefs. We have no problem if a school wants to focus a short unit on a religion in a social studies class. However, it must be balanced.
