Christian Student Forced to Recite Islamic Conversion Vow As Some Kind of Conversion Role-Play Appeals Case to Supreme Court

Weird that no school would ever dream of forcing students to recite John 3:16 or play the initiate in a simulated baptism, huh?

But this is cool.

During the 2014-2015 school year, a Christian teenage girl was forced to recite the Islamic conversion creed -- the Shahada -- in writing for her 11th-grade class. She was also taught that "Most Muslims' faith is stronger than the average Christian." The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) sued the school responsible, and the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled with the school. TMLC appealed to the Supreme Court, filing a Writ of Certiorari on Monday.

"Under the guise of teaching history or social studies, public schools across America are promoting the religion of Islam in ways that would never be tolerated for Christianity or any other religion," TMLC President and Chief Counsel Richard Thompson said in a statement. "I'm not aware of any school which has forced a Muslim student to write the Lord's Prayer or John 3:16: 'For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.'"


"Many public schools have become a hotbed of Islamic propaganda," Thompson argued. "Teaching Islam in schools has gone far beyond a basic history lesson. Prompted by zealous Islamic activism and emboldened by confusing court decisions, schools are now bending over backwards to promote Islam while at the same time denigrate Christianity."

"We are asking the Supreme Court to provide the necessary legal guidance to resolve the insidious discrimination against Christians in our public schools," he concluded.

Islam is now the default state religion of America. Quite against the Constitution and all American history and tradition, but don't worry -- Your elites are elitin'.
