Teaching our kids to be good little Muslims

File this under "YGTBFKM"*:

For three weeks, impressionable twelve-year-old students were, among other things, placed into Islamic city groups, took Islamic names, wore identification tags that displayed their new Islamic name and the Star and Crescent Moon, which is the symbol of Muslims, were handed materials that instructed them to “Remember Allah always so that you may prosper,” completed the Islamic Five Pillars of Faith, including fasting, and memorized and recited the “Bismillah” or “In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate,” which students also wrote on banners that were hung on the classroom walls.

Of course, there is a court case, and it started yesterday. What were they thinking? A kid can't even sing "Silent Night" in a school's "Holiday Concert" now-a-days, yet they were spending three weeks indoctrinating them on Islam.

*You got to be f-ing kidding me.
