Marine Dad Furious After Discovering Daughter's Assignment, Makes School Pay

A federal lawsuit filed this week claims that a Maryland public high school is attempting indoctrinate students into Islam by forcing them to profess the Muslim statement of faith, memorize the Five Pillars of Islam and making the claim that the faith of an average Muslim is stronger than the average Christian.

Note that the Thomas More Law Center filed the lawsuit for parents John and Melissa Wood. The parents allege La Plata High School in Maryland has subjected their daughter to Islamic indoctrination.

Note that when Wood complained to the school about the course material, the school banned him from campus because of his safety concerns.

“Defendants forced Wood’s daughter to disparage her Christian faith by reciting the Shahada, and acknowledging Mohammed as her spiritual leader,” Thomas More president Richard Thompson noted in the lawsuit.

The Shahada translate into English as “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”

The lawyers claimed that for non-Muslims, merely reciting the statement is sufficient to mean a conversion to Islam.

“The course also taught false statements such as Allah is the same God worshipped by Christians and Islam is a ‘religion of peace,’” Thompson alleged.  

A spokesperson for Charles County Public Schools declined to comment on ongoing litigation.

The defendants in the lawsuit are the Charles County Board of Education, principal Evelyn Arnold and vice-principal Shannon Morris.

The federal lawsuit alleges that students only studied Christianity for one day, and spent two weeks studying Islam.

“During its brief instruction on Christianity, Defendants failed to cover any portion of the Bible or other non-Islamic religious texts, such as the Ten Commandments,” the lawsuit claims. “Instead, the class included disparaging remarks about Christianity and the Pope.”

The lawsuit also claims that students were taught that “the Islamic religion is a fact while Christianity and Judaism are just beliefs.”

“Such discriminatory treatment of Christianity is an unconstitutional promotion of one religion over another,” Thompson argued. 

Based on classroom assignments, the classroom curriculum instructed students that “Most Muslims’ faith is stronger than the average Christian.”

The materials also taught students that Islam is a peaceful religion, and Islamic rulers treated conquered nations with kindness and respect, which the lawsuit points out, is an inaccurate and untrue generalization.
