Mother Shocked By Son's Religious Homework, Sends Message Back To Teacher

A California mother was outraged when she found out what was being taught in her child's 7th grade World History class. In an assignment titled, “Islamic Beliefs and Practices,” students were asked to list the Five Pillars of Islam, watch a YouTube video featuring “a call to prayer at the Blue Mosque in Istanbul,” and summarize what they had learned in that chapter of their textbook.

Tara Cali wrote on her facebook page "Seriously?" She also made sure the teacher knew her son would not be completing the lesson. Instead of listing the 5 Pillars, she wrote:

“My son will not be a part of this in any sort of way. This is bad teaching material. He will NOT partake. If you have a problem with it, call our lawyer.

Ephesians 6:10
Isaiah 40:31
Mark 12:30
2 Corinthians 12:9-10
Psalm 46:1
Psalm 22:19?"

Under the section for summarizing the chapter on Islam, she wrote:

“How about Christian practices? That sheet has never came [sic] home, this year or last!”

Ms. Cali shared her comments on Facebook and has been shared by over 118,000 people.

Mother offended that her son has to learn about certain religions, but Christianity is excluded.
