Texas: CSCOPE tests students on Islamic sharia

via Cscope Students Tested On Sharia Law » RED HOT CONSERVATIVE.

State Cscope Director Wade Laby and Texas Education Service Center Directors will continue to LIE and tell legislators, parents and communities that Cscope is not Pro Islamic but the mounting evidence proves otherwise. Below is a History Cscope Assessment question testing students on Sharia Law. SERIOUSLY!! THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!

Cscope aligns with the TEKS? Where in the Texas Teks is Sharia Law listed? It isn’t! If you have questions as to why Cscope is testing your child or grandchildren on Islamic Sharia Law email the State Cscope Director Wade Labay at Wade.Labay@esc13.txed.net and ask him why?

cscope-sharia

The first option above should read “requiring a tax on non-Muslims to live safely in Muslim countries” – it’s called the poll tax or jizya.

I have research Cscope for over a year. My first findings was this Islamic Powerpoint. Notice the Power point is dated 2008 on the bottom left of the top page. The following powerpoint accompanies this lesson titled The Islamic World which calls for the teacher to hand out verses of the Quran to the students.

Please get involved and contact your superintendents and those in your communities and inform them about Cscope. Hold town hall meetings to inform your community. Our children deserve better.

  1. I am telling you that Islamic Sharia Law is like poison ivy, you get a little spot on your skin, or one Muslim in your Country, an it or they start to irritate you. If you don’t do any thing about it, it spreads and continues to get worse and worse. The best thing to do in this situation, is to use calamine lotion, to get rid of the poison ivy, and we should deport any Muslims that come into this Country. All you have to do is read the Koran, an it will tell you that we shouldn’t allow any Muslims into this Country. The biggest thing is they don’t believe in Religious Freedom. The also believe that there is only one religion an that is Islam. They will tolerate another religion in a Muslim Country if they pay a Dhimmis. You can see what they do to Christians in Muslim Countries.

  2. Using our own laws (freedom of religion) to establish their take over of this country and to do it with far too many Americans signing on you have to admit is a pretty neat maneuver. The question is how do we wake our fellow Americans up.

    • It is tricky, because anyone who protests or even calls attention to the problem of Muslim intransigence is branded a redneck hater. Our real troubles began with the culture of political correctness in which it became a sin to say anything unflattering about nonwhite, nonChristian groups, even to make bland factual observations. The victimhood we allow special interests to wallow in has become an incubator for the disease of Islam.
      Wake up America! Teachers need to be especially vigilant to avoid becoming carriers of this pestilence.

      • The victimhood we allow muslims, islamists (special interests) to wallow in has become an incubator for the disease of Islam. Excellent wording!

        • The Socialists in the Democratic Party share a common hatred of Jews, the state of Israel and Christians with the Muslims and it is through this their need to build a voter base that that Socialists decided to bring Muslim terrorists and their supporters to the USA to build a voter base among them. Political correctness, where every it is applied is nothing other than the Socialists protecting their decadent voter base.

  3. The Socialists in the Democratic Party are socially engineering their future secular voter base through their propaganda machine in the public schools, to get them to accept the Muslim terrorists and their supporters that they are bringing to the USA to build a voter base among and to join them in their campaign against Israel and Christians.

    • This was the GOP answer to avoid Common Core. Not sure you’ve got all the facts.

      What’s your source?

      • Jesus revealed to me and sent me out to tell His people that the USA is Babylon the great and it is the Socialists in the Democratic Party who have been leading the USA in fulfilling Rev 18:2, which foretold that Babylon the great would become a prison for every hateful bird, which includes the Socialist Democratic Party and the Muslims they are bringing to the USA. The GOP platform has been to try to stop this. The Socialists are build a voter base among the Muslims as part of their plan to obtain enough votes to take control of the US government and fully implement a anti-Christian Socialist government in the USA just like has taken place in Europe, where the Socialist movement began. The Socialist movement is the anti-Christian movement that the Antichrist becomes their leader and leads them on their crusade against Christians and then the Jews after he breaks the peace treaty Daniel saw he will make in the vision he recorded in Dan 9. Besides build a voter base among the Muslims the Socialist in the Democratic Party have included their open rantings on college campuses and in organized protests in their anti-Christian agenda in the USA and they are allowing them to raise money in the USA and send it to Muslim terrorist organizations that are terrorizing Israel and killing Christians through out the world. When one of these Muslim terrorist commits a terrorist act, such as took place at Fort Hood, Texas when one of them killed 13 and wounded 31 fellow US Army soldiers the Socialists in the Democratic Party not the GOP covered up that it was a terrorist act by calling it a act of civil disobedience. They are cover up and don’t report their terrorist acts in order to hide from their voter base and their targets, the Christians that they are conspiring with the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization. The Socialists in the Democratic Party and their European Socialists in NATO conspired with the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization to over throw the governments in countries where the Muslim Brotherhood has been outlawed, in order to unleash the Muslim Brotherhood in these countries and thereby increase the threat to Israel, which they plan to use to cause Israel to capitulate to their demands. This Socialist activity is part of the fulfillment of Rev 18:24, which foretold that Babylon the great would become responsible for all who are slain on the earth. Since Obama took office the Socialists have been using the US economic grip and military supremacy to force the nations of the earth to legalize homosexuality, transgender, same sex marriage and abortion, which is how they are causing the Babylon the great or the USA to fulfill being the mother of the abominations of the earth.
        Rev 18:2 And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird.
        Rev 18:24 “And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints and of all who have been slain on the earth.”
        According to Rev 18:4 those believers who are participating in their sins either directly or indirectly by voting for one them will receive their plagues.
        Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, that you may not participate in her sins and that you may not receive of her plagues;
        Rev. 1:3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.

        • . . .The Socialists are build a voter base among the Muslims as part of their plan to obtain enough votes . . .

          Islam is religiously opposed to socialism, and communism. Your claim doesn’t make sense.

          • Whether Muslims go along with Socialism is not an issue between them. The Socialists initiated the conspiracy. The Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization and its affiliate terrorist organizations in the USA have caught on and are on board with the Socialists in the Democratic Party. The Socialists in the Democratic Party are working on recruiting the other three terrorist organizations.

          • The Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization and its affiliate terrorist organizations in the USA have caught on and are on board with the Socialists in the Democratic Party.

            Sharia law propositions showed up in the Texas GOP platform, the Oklahoma GOP platform, the Alabama GOP platform, and the national GOP platform — all in 2012.

            Not in any Democratic platform.

            I think you may be confused about who is doing what, where.

          • I believe that the progressives are using the help of the Muslims to take over this country in a socialist dictatorship. First step is to disarm us, second is to do away with the first amendment. Democrats can take care of the second amendment, but they would have trouble with the First. That’s why the need the Muslims. What they don’t realize it that they are not going to be able to get rid of the Muslims after they turn the United States into a third word country. Mainly Islam is a Political Religion, an they have their own views on how this country and the rest of the world should be run. They are a hell of a lot worse that Socialism or Communism.

          • You need to get out more.

            One of our current problems is the overt Christian bias in the U.S. military, that gets in the way of military duties.

            You think those guys are going to turn Muslim on you? You don’t know our military at all.

          • The biggest thing that gets in the way in the military, is all this Political Correctness bull shit. How many wars that are being fought right now around the World, that is not connected one way or another with Islam? How many wars have been fought in the past, with Muslims being involved one way or another.

          • There are about 20 wars going on right now, as I recall. They include classic and long-time struggles between Islam and socialism in China and former states of the Soviet Union — which puts to the lie the claim that Islam is uniting with socialism. In reality, Islamists are killing socialists.

            Here, Gizmodo had a decent feature on this last year:

            http://gizmodo.com/5875194/all-the-worlds-wars-and-conflicts-coming-in-2012

          • You are lying as usual Ed. China is a Communist country and they, like the countries that made up the former USSR are dealing with Muslim terrorists who want to secede and form their own nations. It’s not an accident that you chose China and Russia in order to support your lie that the Socialists aren’t conspiring with the Muslims. These countries are lagging in joining the European and American Socialists conspiracy with the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization against Jews, the State of Israel and Christians. You are a socially engineered miseducated educated Socialist misfit who is a threat to Christians and Jews and their property.

          • Ed is a propagandist who is doing nothing other than protecting his Socialist Party’s voter base among homosexuals, transgenders and pedophiles, which in exchange for their vote, started disseminating the lie that these deviant behaviors are normal genetic evolutionary behaviors. These kinds of lies tell you that the aristocratic businessmen/women behind these anti-Christian lies are those that Christianity has held in check.

          • That Major at Fort Hood was not listed as a member of the Islamic Faith. This was another example of a gun free zone massacre. When he stated shooting and saying Alla AK-Bar, was all I needed to know that it was a terrorist attack. Also check into what I believe was the Army Lima 6 program. Where our Military was actively recruiting Muslims for interpreters and etc. But in the Military, a soldier does not have to give information on his religious preferences. Do you know what Taqiyya means: Qur’an 3;28 AS sanctioning deception for the advancement of Islam. That statement means to me, lie you heart out for the good of Islam. The whole problem is you believe them.

          • We don’t maintain a registry of who belongs to what religions. What do you mean, “That Major at Fort Hood was not listed as a member of the Islamic Faith.”

            That has absolutely nothing to do with Texas’s world history courses, and is quite a bit off point in this discussion.

          • I thought that cscope was painting a to pretty of a picture of the Muslim Faith. I just want the students in Texas to see what the Muslim faith is like to their followers and infidels. That’s why they should have to read Atlas Shrugs also. Let them see what its really like living under Islam and Sharia Law. How loving and tolerant they are of other religions.

          • The whole problem is you believe them.

            You read minds? You’re misreading.

            My views on Islam are irrelevant to this discussion — but you get them wrong anyway.

            Are you so careless in your criticism of Texas social studies, too?

            THAT is the real problem: Recklessness in invective, where good, careful thought is required.

          • Ed you are an outright lying Socialist propagandist. Your views are visible through the lies you have been posting on behalf of the conspiracy between you and the Muslim terrorists and their supporter against Jews, the State of Israel and Christians.

          • The Socialists in the Democratic Party in the military are hiring Muslim terrorists and their supporters to lie to US soldiers about the Muslims, in order to get them to accept and if possible to join the Socialist’s conspiracy with the Muslim Brotherhood and their affiliate terrorist organizations against Jews, the State of Israel and Christians. I talked to one of these Muslim terrorist supporting propagandists who the Socialists hired to lie to US soldiers.
            What Ed is saying when he said that Christians are getting in the way, is that they are getting in the way of the following: their anti-Christian voter building scheme among homosexuals in which they fabricated the lie that it is normal genetic evolutionary behavior in exchange for their vote and their anti-Christian voter building scheme among the Muslim terrorists and their supporters that they are bringing to the USA and allowing to join the US military.
            The Fort Hood incident reveals how demonic Ed is because he is supports his Socialist leaders who are bringing Muslim terrorists and their supporters to the USA from countries, where they are indoctrinated from the time they are born to hate and want to kill American soldiers in order to build a voter base among them and when one of them commits a terrorist act like what took place at Fort Hood, Ed supports calling it an act of civil disobedience in order to hide from his fellow Socialists that he is conspiring with Muslim terrorists against Jews, the State of Israel and Christians. Ed deserves the death sentence for his part in this Socialist conspiracy.

          • The Socialists in the Democratic Party are bringing Muslim terrorists and their supporters to the USA to build a voter base among them knowing that in the country they come from are socially engineering them to hate Jews, the State of Israel, Christians and Americans, and when one of them commits a terrorist such as took place when one the children of one these that they let into the US Army killed 13 and wounded 21 in Forth Hood, Texas the Socialists in the Democratic Party call it an act of civil disobedience in order to cover up that it was a terrorist act and to hide that they are conspiring with the Muslim Brotherhood and it’s affiliate terrorist organizations against Jews, the State of Israel and Christians. It is sickening that Ed, who is a Socialist propagandist for the Socialists in the Democratic Party is propagandizing for the Socialist Cscope Muslim propaganda literature in the Texas schools, while he is fully aware of the Muslim terrorist act that was committed at Fort Hood, Texas. Ed’s activities are part of the fulfillment of Rev 18:2, which foretold that Babylon the great would become a prison for every hateful bird, which includes the Socialists in the Democratic Party and the Muslims they are bringing to the USA to build a voter base among. One of the ways that the Socialists are bringing Muslim terrorists and their supporters to the USA is through the State Department’s Resettlement Program, in which they hand pick Muslim terrorists and their supporters from refugee camps in Somalia, who they falsely claim are the more vulnerable than the Christians that the Muslims are seeking to wipe out in Somalia and resettle them in towns like Murfreessboro, TN. Then Socialist Attorney General Holder had his office contact the manufacturers in the town and threaten them with prosecution if they did not hire them and meet minority hiring quotas.

          • Do you know what percentage of the U.S. claims to follow Islam? Can you compare that to the percentage that is agnostic? Atheist? Christian? Jew? Zoroastrian?

            A long way to go before we get too concerned, I’ll wager. Got statistics?

            And, can you explain why that means Texas kids should be kept in ignorance about Islam, which seems to be the chief view here?

          • I would have felt better if the students were to read the posts on Atlas Shrugs for a week an then make a report on how Islam shows peace & tolerance for other religions. Also how they are treating any non Muslims. What Muslims are doing to Infidels around the world, and how peaceful the Muslims are. You get my drift. They are being fed a lot of crap. Also there doesn’t have to be a lot of Muslims in this country to do what they want to accomplish. They have different groups around the Country trying to get a Blasphemy Law passed now.

          • High schoolers should be reading higher quality material than Atlas Shrugs. It is, mostly, a load of the crap you say students shouldn’t get.

            The GOP platform planks favoring blasphemy shouldn’t be blamed on Muslims.

          • High schoolers should not be reading the Socialist propaganda that is being disseminated in the public schools. It is the Socialist Democratic Party platform that is at the helm of bringing Muslim terrorists and their supporters to the USA to build a voter base among them, not the GOP. It is your Socialist activities that are anti-Christian and are causing American society to be an unsafe place for Christians to live. Bible prophecies that the so called peaceful Muslims that you are propagandizing naive children to assimilate into our society will join the Antichrist led fourth beast and defeat the USA militarily when the earthquake John saw and recorded in Rev 16 renders the USA defenseless. It will be through your own evil works that you will be disposed of.

            Wormwood Star Vision
            June 27, 2005

            All along I have heard and read about the Wormwood star in Revelation…
            Rev. 8:10   The third angel sounded, and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters. 11 The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter.

            The Bible foretells of a star called wormwood slamming into the earth and below is a vision that a believer saw of this happening you should be interested in.

            May 2005 Warm Wood Vision…
            However, as I was seeking the Lord through prayer and fasting through this past May 2005, The Lord showed me a powerful vision. I was taken to the heavens above the earth and I could see the earth in a distance not so far but clearly. Suddenly I heard a very loud sound and vibration with a very heavy zoom sound coming my way, hundred times louder than that of a Boeing 747 Jet.

            I then saw a very huge rock almost the size of the moon zooming past me at a very high speed with a large tail of fire besides and behind it. In The vision I was made to feel the waves of vibrations and the heat it generated that hit me but I was protected. It was like someone was holding me by my collar and snatched me out of its way to a safe distance. I then could see other splintering rocks falling off this huge burning object and catching fire themselves.

            I looked where it was headed, I knew it was headed for planet earth and thought well, I hope it lands in the ocean, not many people will die. However, it seemed targeted to the ocean and the United States. I was like, no Lord no! However, it kept its course targeting the ocean and the United States, it seemed as though someone was controlling its path unhindered and sure to hit its target. The vision ended. I shared the vision with a Prayer Warrior Sister who then told me I had a vision of Rev 8:10-11.

            June 27, 2005 Wormwood Vision…
            However, I simply wrote the vision down and well, like we do to many visions, I kept this one and did not give much attention to it until this morning. This time I had a series of visions early in the morning as I got up to pray and all related…

            Shown the Calendar…
            First, I saw someone dressed in a white robe holding a calendar and said to me,
            “The date has been set back for Wormwood” which I understood as forward…he then showed me the calendar with September/October written on it and the number 7. I did not see the year but I instantly knew it was the Fall Season. I don’t know if the number 7 represents 2007, I don’t know the meaning but I know it is not that far.
            Then I was shown the second vision. People were having their usual life, for some reason I saw people going to get movies at blockbuster and did not seem to care about what was coming. People were busy watching movies. No one was warning anyone, life was going on as normal.
            Then in the same vision I was taken to the Chiefs Football Arrowhead Stadium, here in Kansas City. I knew it was fall and the beginning of the Football Season. In the Vision it looked like evening and the stadium was packed to capacity with everyone putting on their red Chiefs outfits, the stadium was all red as it is normally here with Chiefs games in Kansas City.

            The game was going on as usual and suddenly there was a very huge loud bang in the sky…and then a huge object I had seen previously in my May vision lit the sky with red fire and zoomed passed across the sky…with very power vibrations that threw everyone off their sits and shook the stadium…

            Everyone in the stadium began to scream and go hysterical, and run too and fro but could not leave the stadium. The huge ball of fire flew from the east across to the west. I knew it was Wormwood. The Stadium officials seemed to have had a clue about the coming disaster but did not warn anyone and also they locked the stadium doors and no one could go out.

            I then saw something amazing, people began to fall on their knees and pray to God, they knew they were going to die anytime soon. I even saw young toddlers who had come to the game with their parents praying too.

            I was then taken back to the blockbuster place and people saw the object and heard the band and vibrations but seemed not to care about it, some said, ” I will die watching a movie”…

            Saints Protected, Rise of Fierce End-time Preachers of The Word…
            After this, I saw another vision, I was taken to a place where I saw believers gathered and protected, I don’t know where but I knew they were Christians because I was given a bible and I was preaching to them and encouraging them with God’s Word. Many other people were encouraging the saints too.

            However, these who were preaching did so in such powerful authority than I have ever seen or heard before…they were men and women of authority…it is like Jesus Christ had given them His authority. All who were preaching were dressed in white robes with a bible in there hands. These preachers were powerful and fierce in the face of the devils and they hated all types of evil…they had authority that they commanded judgments on all who stood in their way.

            People are always offended at real bible truth preaching preachers and some times calling them “harsh”, unkind or unloving…in this vision these guys were no joke guys, they were very tough and fierce, they meant what they said…a powerful Elijah Anointing was upon them. They had authority so powerful it shook world leaders and presidents that they dared not to answer these preachers back… These preachers had such love and passion for the saints and Christ… They seemed to do everything in care for the saints.
            They spoke with such authority to world leaders and presidents that they never begged them but just commanded what they wanted done and none of the presidents dared get into their way for fear of judgments. The preachers seemed to be perfectly in sync with Jesus Christ…they could hear His Commands and do like wise…the believers had been protected in a secret place and I know they did survive Wormwood…

            Debris more destructive than 2004 Dec Tsunami…
            After this, I was shown the debris and damage floating all the way on the Atlantic ocean like the force of the moving star caused the debris of destroyed buildings to float all the way from Europe and dumped it at the east coast of America with more excessive damage…I remembered the Tsunami, it looked like very small compared to the Warm Wood damage…

            Angels High Tech Room…
            I was then taken to a room were I saw men around some very high tech gadgets with screens that looked more like flat screen computer panels…but this was very high tech, technology I have never seen before…I knew the men here angels, they were all dressed in white robes and they turned on one flat screen panel and showed me the trajectory of the Warm Wood star, then I was shocked to look and behind Warm Wood was another star following the same trajectory, just few distance behind Warm Wood and again headed for the Ocean and the United States…they all seemed to have the United States in their path…

            Uganda/Africa…
            After this I was then taken to Africa, in Uganda where I come from. I was shown people, very sad looking to the destruction in the West. In Uganda, the staple food is Bananas (Matoke in Luganda, a Ugandan Language); people grow different types of Bananas and Plantains. However, the Path of Warm Wood dried up all the banana plantations. There was already a drought before Warm Wood and now the little food was gone. People cried because the West that provided them food was in destruction…fiercer hunger loomed on the horizon… However, I saw the saints gathered for Jesus Christ too in numbers…I was encouraging the saints there… I did not see much destruction from Warm Wood in Africa as I saw in the West in the Visions, apart from a fierce hunger and famine across the continent…

          • If I err, show the error, and show the correct information.

            Still don’t have a fact to your name, Albright?

          • I have over 3200 pieces of information that show exactly what I and everyone else in this forum knows you anti-Christian Atheist Socialists are up to. I have posted some of them and you have dismissed them based on the Socialist propaganda that you have demonstrated that you have gravitated towards because of your own personal beliefs. Try reading the parable of the Virgins Ed. It foretells that anti-Christian Socialists like you will wake up in a little while and realize that you have been wrong and that you need to be saved and in your ignorance you will ask Christians to help you receive salvation, to which the Christians will respond that you have to believe in Jesus for your self. Ed you are already condemned to hell, don’t waste your entire mind on the lies through which the anti-Christian Socialists have socially engineered you.

          • I have over 3200 pieces of information that show exactly what I and everyone else in this forum knows . . .

            And Sen. McCarthy held in his hands the names of 78 communists in the State Department — or was it 83? 94? More than 100?

            His alcoholism, probably the cause of much of his imaginings, did him in.

            Call your physician, today.

          • You are a miseducated educated socially engineered extremist Atheist Socialist social misfit and as a result you aren’t capable of being truthful.

          • Not to mention that blasphemy laws violate the First Amendment; that was so evident that blasphemy prosecutions ended in the 19th century, even without a case going to the Supreme Court.

          • The Socialists in the Democratic Party have changed the course of the USA towards dealing with Communist and now Muslim countries as part of their plan to cause these anti-Christan countries to become rich, powerful and the most influential in the world. Hillary Clinton told Egypt and China that chastisement for persecuting Christians would not be an issue with the Socialists in the Democratic Party. The Socialists are turning their back while their Muslim terrorist cohorts fight their proxy war against Christians all over the world.

          • Facts, Albright. Not hallucination. Clinton did NOT tell Egypt it was okay to persecute Christians. Shame on you.

            See here: http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2009/August/Egypts-Christians-Want-Justice-Against-Persecution/

          • CHINA: 16 Members of Congress Urge Secretary of State Clinton to Address Human Rights in China 05 March 2009 Chinaaid
            Prior to Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi’s visit to the U.S. on March 9, 16 members of the U.S. Congress sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton urging her to make certain her conversations with the Chinese government are consistent with the true state of deteriorating human rights conditions in China. The letter, which had bipartisan support, was issued in response to Secretary Clinton’s controversial remarks before and during her visit to China indicating a retreat on the priority of human rights issues in U.S.-China relations. In their letter, the members of Congress also expressed their hope of “an Ambassador in Beijing who will be pro-active and engaged in the promotion of human rights with the highest level of the Chinese government” and their desire and willingness to work with the Secretary of State and the State Department to promote human rights throughout the world.

            EGYPT: Secretary of States’ Human Rights Statement in Egypt Leads to More Killing of Christian Copts, CNW, 17 March 2009

            During her first visit to Egypt, as Secretary of State, Mrs. Hillary Clinton’s statements were understood as green light to Mubarak regime for more killing of Egyptian Copts. Afterwards, the regime didn’t waste time, and immediately committed more crimes of killing Christian Copts. Contrary to President Obama calls for Human Rights respect, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton played down the value of raising human rights concerns. In a press conference held in Egypt last month, she set aside a reporter’s question about an official state department report that noted “serious abuses” of human rights in Egypt. Implicitly undermining the annual report of US Department State for Human Rights around the World, Mrs. Clinton said “We issue these reports on every country,” “We hope that it will be taken in the spirit in which it is offered, that we all have room for improvement.” More encouragement for Mubarak’s regime to go ahead in its plan to remove the Egyptian natives from their home land, she added “that the report would not interfere with plans for Egypt’s authoritarian president, Hosni Mubarak, to visit Washington. “I really consider President and Mrs. Mubarak to be friends of my family. So I hope to see him often here in Egypt and in the United States,” she said.

          • So, Albright — all bluster, no facts, still.

            You know, your fiction doesn’t ring true, either.

          • Anti-Christian/Semitic China is a perfect example. The businessmen that I interviewed told me that the anti-Christian/Semitic North Vietnamese Communists are presently at the top of their list to develop manufacturing relations with and that Muslim dominated Indonesia is the next hot spot that American businesses will seek to manufacture their goods for them. All of these countries have anti-Christian/Semitic Communist or Muslim governments. Part of Obama’s most recent aid to anti-Christian/Semitic Muslim Brotherhood led Egypt is designated to develop trade relations. This recent notable change in America foreign policy coincides with the other anti-Christian activities that the Socialists in the Democratic Party are conducting in the USA.

          • It is the Socialists in the Democratic Party who are responsible for the the evil deeds that the Muslim terrorists and their supporters are getting away with doing in the USA. The Socialists in the Democratic Party have included their open anti-Christian/Semitic rantings on college campuses in the face of Christians and Jews in their anti-Christian agenda in the USA. Ed doesn’t know about this because he is one them and he only watches Socialist news channels which censored what news they disseminate so they can control the thoughts of their victims, which includes Ed.

          • I forgot to mention that you don’t see any of the others trying to do away with the first amendment, like the Muslims are. Like this article: Leaders of Kansas City Muslim Group Petition Obama to limit free speech of American Citizens. By Patrick Poole in PJ Media Sept.24 Also there is this Quote, “The Future must not belong to those who slander Islam.” Who said that, 1. Sheikh Qaradawi, 2. Osamma Bin Laden, 3. Anwar Al-Awiaki, 4. Barrak Hussein Obama. Does this list of 4 tell you any thing. They are all for the Blasphemy Law.

          • Do you seriously think anyone would give traction to laws limiting the First Amendment?

          • They are already on their way. Right now its called hate speech. Give it a little push and time an it will be called Blasphemy. The biggest problem other than it getting put into law, is who will define what is Blasphemous what isn’t. Look at whats being done now, you can’t call some one who crossed the border illegally, an illegal alien. I don’t even know what the correct term is, like undocumented person. You can’t a homosexual a queer or faggot. We also have to put a halt to all this political correctness also.

          • Hate speech laws get zero traction in the U.S., for the same reason. In America, a person has a right to be a fool, and to tell everybody about it.

            We get some hate speech, but the idea is that in a robust contest of genuine ideas, the good ideas win out. Truth wins in a fair fight, Franklin put it.

            Still a good idea, and the reason blasphemy laws are dead and hate speech laws don’t obtain in the U.S.

            None of your worries relate to the Texas CSCOPE curriculum, do they.

          • Hate speech does not get zero traction. The Socialists in the Democratic Party have propagandized secular Americans into thinking that every time a Christian shares the gospel they are being offensive and are pushing their beliefs on them. This has reached the point that secular Americans are sometimes calling the police, who themselves being socially engineered to think this way, arrive and threaten the Christians with arrest. This propaganda scheme is designed to socially engineer enough support so that the Socialists can eventually get away with legislating anti-Christian hate speech laws. Cscope is designed to socially engineer children into joining the Socialist’s conspiracy with Muslim terrorists against Jews, the State of Israel and Christians and to cause them to support passing hate speech laws that are designed to stop their targeted Christians from interfering with their conspiracy with the Muslim terrorists against them. Your activities prove the Bible is true because you prove there is a Devil and that you are one the anti-Christians prophesied in the Bible that the Antichrist will lead in your crusade against Christians and then the State of Israel.

          • Such Socialist propaganda lies that Ed is conjuring up in his evil mind. The Socialists in the Democratic Party have already implemented some of their anti-Christian Socialist government in the USA that violate the First Amendment rights of the Christians. They have begun to control what is taught to children in the public schools, colleges, museums, parks and their socialist media outlets. Their redefinition of Separation of church and state is nothing other than Socialist censorship of what Christians can and cannot say while they are employed by or attend a taxpayer funded institution or hold public office.

          • Their redefinition of Separation of church and state is nothing other than Socialist censorship of what Christians can and cannot say while they are employed by or attend a taxpayer funded institution or hold public office.

            This will amaze you, in your fact-free world, Albright, but public employees keep some of their First Amendment rights in the workplace. Private employees do not.

            Call Wal-Mart, and Exxon-Mobil if you want to complain about censorship. Call someone who censors.

            (Do you know the difference between “censor” and “scensor?” “Senser?” I only ask because, the scurrilous charges you make, really stink.)

          • You never cease lying in order to hide that your Socialist cohorts have fact begun to implement their anti-Christian Socialist government in the USA, which includes censoring what Christians can an cannot say, while they violate the Establishment Clause by using the public schools, colleges, museums, parks and Socialist media outlets to establish Atheism as the national religion. You are one of the pathetic evil extremist Atheists who are behind this threat to Christians and Jews and their property.

          • You’re the same “Jim Albright” who gave the keynote speech at the Denver Atheist-Islamist Alliance Conference last month, aren’t you?

          • The problem is that your Socialist news outlets don’t reveal the truth to you so that they can socially engineer your views and this is the reason you can’t even grasp this fact. According to your Socialist social engineering everyone’s view except the extremist Atheist’s are wrong. What extremist stupidity.

          • Can’t deny it, eh?

          • I see that you choose to continue to fabricate and lie. It is obvious that you still haven’t been able to see through the Extremist Atheist social engineering that you were exposed to in the public schools, colleges, museums, parks and Socialist media outlets. When your evil plans fall apart maybe that will help.

          • It is you who fabricate and lie; when I ask you a question, rather than deny and provide facts contrary, you make false claims.

            Are you or are you not that same “Jim Albright?” How can we tell you’re not the sock puppet you appear to be?

            Come clean, Albright.

          • Why would anyone think that blasphemers of any faith should hold the reins to the future? Got a context for that statement, or are you cherrypicking in order to tell not-the-whole truth?

          • The article below Ed is lying when it reveals that the Socialists in the Democratic Party in the Texas school system and Federal Courts have violated the First Amendment right of the Institute for Creation Research Institute to teach science because it reveals that the Socialist Atheists in the Democratic Party are lying to their students about the origins of the earth and the ice age. This is part of their plan to socially engineer children and young adults to hate Christians, Jews and the State of Israel, which is part of their plan to build a voter base among these students.
            The Socialists in the Democratic Party in the Texas Education System denied ICR’s application to award Masters Degrees at their new school in Dallas, Texas, which a Socialist Federal Judge upheld when ICR sued. The Socialists hope to persuade students not to go to ICR’s new school in Dallas, TX by not granting them the authority to award Masters Degrees.
            ICR is one of if not the top school of science in the USA. Their scientific findings have uncovered that the Socialists Atheists in the public schools and colleges are lying to their students about the age and origin of the earth, the ice age and the origin of man.

            The Institute For Creation Research Gets Slammed, Rejected By Federal Judge

            By Richard Connelly Tue., Jun. 22 2010
            Categories: Courts, Education

            The Institution for Creation Research was a California-based school that moved to the Dallas area three years ago.

            They applied to Texas’ Higher Education Coordinating Board for certification to give master’s degrees in science; the HECB reviewed their curriculum and turned them down. They sued.

            A federal judge in Austin has ruled against the group and in favor of the HECB, in a ruling that stings pretty hard.

            “It appears that although the court has twice required [ICR] to re-plead and set forth a short and plain statement of the relief requested, plaintiff is entirely unable to file a complaint which is not overly verbose, disjointed, incoherent, maundering and full of irrelevant information,” Judge Sam Sparks wrote.

            And then he got to the meat of the case.

            The Court notes for the record it enters no opinion here on whether it agrees with the Board’s decision. It does not ” judge the wisdom, fairness, or logic” of the Board’s decision, because it has no jurisdiction to do so. The Court simply comes to the conclusion, which is inescapable, that the decision was rationally related to a legitimate state interest.
            He noted that the ICR is free to teach the course any way they want even with his ruling; they just can’t offer a certified master’s degree in science to graduates.

            And that’s probably a good thing. In his summary judgment ruling Sparks said Joseph Stafford, one of the people reviewing the issue for the state:

            quoted the following excerpts from ICRGS’s program catalog:

            1. “It is the position of the institute that…all genuine facts of science support the Bible.”

            2. “The phenomenon of biological life did not develop by natural processes from inanimate systems but was specially and supernaturally created by the creator.”

            3. “All things in the universe were created and made by God in the six literal days of the Creation Week described in Genesis…[.] The creation record is factual, historical, and perspicuous; thus all theories of origin and development that involve evolution in any form are false. (emphasis added by Stafford).

            Dr. Stafford concluded these statements (and others) constituted a rejection of the fundamental principles which guide what scientists do, because scientists must “remain open to all facts and all observations of natural phenomena in order to refine and improve their comprehensive explanations of how natural processes appear to work.”

            The National Center for Science Education praised the ruling, calling it “a significant legal defeat” for the ICR.

          • Here’s what Barack Obama told the United Nations, in calling for peaceful change in the Middle East including support for Israel:

            “The impulse towards intolerance and violence may initially be focused on the West, but over time it cannot be contained. The same impulses toward extremism are used to justify war between Sunni and Shia, between tribes and clans. It leads not to strength and prosperity but to chaos. In less than two years, we have seen largely peaceful protests bring more change to Muslim-majority countries than a decade of violence. And extremists understand this. Because they have nothing to offer to improve the lives of people, violence is their only way to stay relevant. They don’t build; they only destroy. [...] The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. But to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated, or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.”

            It’s just part of the speech, but you can find it here:

            http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/under-god/post/obama-the-future-must-not-belong-to-those-who-slander-the-prophet-of-islam/2012/09/26/acb9ab92-0810-11e2-a10c-fa5a255a9258_blog.html

            Surely you don’t disagree that we should condemn hate demonstrated by desecration of Christian icons and churches, do you?

          • Who do you think is desecrating these christian churches? The same Muslims who want Love and tolerance from other religions and people. Do you know the word Dhimmis?

          • Ed is lying about Obama’s intentions. Obama was propagandizing. Obama says one thing but his actions show that he and the Socialists in the Democratic Party are conspiring with the Muslim Brotherhood against Jews, the state of Israel and Christians. The Socialists in the Democratic Party and their European Socialist cohorts conspired with the Muslim Brotherhood to over Mubarak in Egypt, Gadaffi in Libya and Saleh in Yemen and the ongoing violent over throw of Assad in Syria and quite possibly King Abdullah in Jordan in order to unleash the Muslim Brotherhood in these countries and thereby increase the threat to Israel, which they plan to use to force Israel to capitulate to their demands. This conspiracy is causing weapons of mass destruction to fall into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood’s affiliate terrorist organizations, which is increasing the chances of a nuclear war occurring in the Middle East, because this is causing Israel to have to respond with nuclear weapons as a first response in order to defend themselves in the event that the Muslims start another multi-front war with Israel.

          • Here’s the entire text of Obama’s remarks to the UN: http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/09/25/remarks-president-un-general-assembly

            Texas high school students should be reading these full texts, as AP and IB students do — to get the full story.

          • Just how much of that propaganda do you believe? I had to quit reading about half way through, because I was about to throw up. What has never come up since the first report on the attack in Benghazi, was that Stevens was beaten and sodomized. When I saw that video of the demonstrators showing up carrying AK-47 and rocket propelled grenades, I know they were not there for a peaceful demonstration. Why hasn’t any of the survivors come forward to tell their story. Who were they and why were they there when that Turk was there? We need to get out of the U.N. and kick them out of our Country. Since the beginning, we have been supporting them. I know who paid what in support of the U.N. but we are still paying most of the bills. Plus they are for a New World Order, which we will be a part of if they disarm us. I have seen where a lot of the U.N. Peace keeping Forces didn’t even have any ammo for their guns. So how were they ever going to protect any one? If you really think Obama has our best interests at heart, you need to pull your head out of the sand. What really got me about Obama’s speech was how we were helping to over throw those dictators over there. The one’s we helped over throw, didn’t want any thing to do with the Muslim Brother Hood, That’s why they had to done away with.

          • How does Benghazi relate to CSCOPE?

            I gather there’s a hard political position you wish were used to propagandize Texas students, and you’re upset that they’re studying history instead.

            That’s not CSCOPE’s problem, you know?

          • Cscope is designed to socially engineer children into joining your conspiracy with the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization and their affiliate terrorist organizations against Jews, the State of Israel and Christians and the Bengazi scene is an example of your Socialist Democratic Party conspiracy. Ed you are conspiring with the Muslim Brotherhood to over throw the governments in countries where the Muslim Brotherhood is outlawed in order to unleash them and increase the threat to Israel, which you and Socialist cohorts plan to use to force Israel to capitulate to their demand. You are part of the activities that are increasing the chances of a nuclear war.

          • Texas students should not be exposed to any of the Socialist propaganda and in fact Socialists like Ed should be kicked out to the public schools and colleges and forced to take their own money and build their own meeting houses where anyone that wants to listen to their lies about science and history can do so of their own free will instead of allowing them to continue to use the public schools and colleges in violation of the Establishment Clause to socially engineer anti-Christian Atheists like Ed.

          • The Muslim terrorists and their supporter that the Socialists in the Democratic Party are bringing to the USA are only part of their voter build scheme designed to change the voter demographics in the USA so that the Socialists in the Democratic Party can completely implement their anti-Christian Socialist government in the USA. The Socialists started the lie that homosexuality, transgender and pedophilia are normal genetic evolutionary behavior in exchange for their vote, they are propagating anti-Christian cults such as Witchcraft, and Satanic worship, even to the extend of building a worship center for them at the USAF Academy, they socially engineered secular Americans, like Ed, through their propaganda machine in the public schools, colleges, museums, parks and Socialist media outlets to become a reliable anti-Christian voter base, the Socialists in the Democratic Party unleashed the pornography, abortion and gambling industries in American society in exchange for their financial help and their vote as well as their patrons vote. These are some of the ways that the Socialists in the Democratic Party are changing the voter demographics in the USA. Just look at their decadent voter base to see all of the ways they are changing the voter demographics in the USA. This scheme, which Ed is part of is responsible for the moral decline and the aftermath of American society. America could have balance their budget already had it not been for the Socialists using tax dollars to fund their propaganda machine and police the aftermath of their voter building scheme. The Socialists in the Democratic Party, including Ed are the number one problem in the world that has to be eradicated in order to put the world on a path of peace instead of the destructive path that they are leading the world down.

          • The fact is that you exhibit that your source is the propaganda machine that the Socialists in the Democratic Party have implemented in the public schools, colleges, museums, parks and their Socialist media outlets. Your a victim of anti-Christian businessmen/women, who are making up lies about the Republican Party platform in order to make the Socialist Democratic Party not seem as evil as it really is, so that they can obtain the necessary votes to maintain control of the US government and completely implement their anti-Christian Socialist government in the USA, which will permanently unleash these immoral businessmen/women in American society. Why don’t you try asking a Republican what their party platform is instead of the Socialists. The Socialists have you so thoroughly socially engineered that you wouldn’t think of checking into it outside of the Socialist propaganda. Your entire outlook is based on the Socialist’s propaganda and this has rendered you a threat to Christians and their property either directly or indirectly by supporting those are a direct threat, like the Muslims.

          • If I err, show the error. My error is not that I am an evil person (certainly not the cartoon you mischaracterize me as), in any case.

            Do you have a case to make? Make it. See if you can do it without invective.

            The claim was CSCOPE has a problem. I’ve challenged that claim. I have no dog in that fight, other than keeping things accurate, having never used CSCOPE, and not being a contributor.

            Somehow, I think you’ve missed the point. All those little Baptist and Methodist Texas ladies who teach social studies, are not leading a socialist revolution; nor are they leading an Islamic revolution.

            How long would you have to study to understand that Islam and socialism don’t go together? You might as well claim Churchill teamed up with Hitler to frustrate Stalin. (No, that didn’t happen; and anyone who claimed that would be venturing far into the absurd; almost as absurd as “socialist Islamic”).

          • I don’t have to look any further than your own indicting words, in which you reveal that you are participating in the Socialists in the Democratic Party’s scheme to socially engineer children to hate Christians, Jews, the state of Israel and to accept their Muslim terrorist cohorts. It is not the Christian school teachers it is Socialist’s like you that are at the helm of the anti-Christians activities in the Texas public schools. Whether you realize it or not your own words indicted you and have made you an accomplice in their evil social engineering program for which you will pay the price down the road.

          • don’t have to look any further than your own indicting words, in which you reveal that you are participating in the Socialists in the Democratic Party’s scheme to socially engineer children to hate Christians, Jews, the state of Israel and to accept their Muslim terrorist cohorts.

            You’re a lying SOB, Albright. You slander with alacrity I haven’t seen since I fought communists.

            Be gone.

            If you had a fact, you wouldn’t know what to do with it.

            You don’t have one, so you slander, lie and smear.

            Shame on you. Your behavior represents a poor excuse for a religious guy, if that is indeed what you claim to be.

          • Your own words reveal that you are lying. I fought against the Communists and it is people like you who fought with the Communists in the USA in those days against those of us who were fighting against your Communist comrades, because we were fighting against them and our fighting against them was reversing the effects of the social engineering that your Socialist cohorts in the Democratic Party were conducting in the USA at the time, that was and still is designed to cause secular Americans to want the anti-Christian Socialist government, that it has become obvious, that anti-Christian Atheist Socialists like you have been implementing in the USA for a long time. You are a Socialist liar who knows nothing else but lying to move forward your anti-Christian Atheist cause. Your a child of the Devil to the bone and are the number one problem in the world today that has to be eradicated in order to put the world back on a path of peace. It is ludicrous for an Atheist anti-Christian like you quote the Bible that you hate to further your anti-Christian cause. The reason that we bombed Germany so extensively was because it was hard to tell a German from a Nazi because of the social engineering program that your predecessors implemented in the public schools, colleges and their Nazi media outlets. The fact is that anyone who has studied the holocaust can easily see that the propaganda machine that the Socialists in the Democratic Party implemented in the USA is almost identical to the Nazi propaganda machine that was implemented in Germany.

          • . . .made you an accomplice in their evil social engineering program for which you will pay the price down the road.

            Down the road, your fight to snuff out the American light of knowledge will fail. What price to I have to pay to defeat ignorance and evil?

            Standing up against your falsehoods is a small price to pay.

            Still don’t have a single fact to support your case, eh?

          • I don’t call outright lying “light of knowledge”. I call what you and your Atheist Socialist are doing evil anti-Christian demonically driven acts. The college professors that participate in the History channel propaganda against Christians clearly display that they are possessed by demons.
            For example the sedimentary layers that make up your fabricated geological column aren’t age layers because they exhibit particle separation which only occurs during flood events and this reveals that the layers weren’t deposited one layer at a time over billions of years but rather it shows that were deposited in a single flood event that had to be the magnitude described in the Bible. Stop using the Texas public schools and colleges in violation of the Establishment Clause to socially engineer anti-Christian Atheists and take your own money an go build your own meeting houses where anyone that wants to can go and listen to your lies.
            Ancient component maps that were drawn by the Phoenicians around 2300 BC reveal that at the time they were drawn the ice caps were just beginning to form and Plato wrote that the ice age ended around 1500 BC, during the reigns of the Greek Kings Dardanus and Seacrops when the oceans arose and submerged Atlantis. The East Indians testified of this event when they wrote in their ancient Vedic that the Kandamaran Kingdom, which is located on the south east corner of India was submerged by the rising oceans around 1500 BC. Stop socially engineering Texas students with your Atheist lie that the ice age ended in 10,000 BC and they occur every 100,000 years. Stop lying about Atlantis, because Plato’s account of when it was submerged reveals that you are lying about when the ice age ended. The fact is that the temporary post flood conditions caused the ice to build up around 2350 BC and when the condition subsided the ice began to melt and continues to melt today. In conjunction with this stop lying to the students telling them that global warming is man made.
            The Socialists in the Democratic Party started the lie that homosexuality, transgender and pedophilia is normal genetic evolutionary behavior in exchange for their votes.
            Stop lying about the crusades against the invading Muslims that conquered and occupied Israel.
            The fact is that the anti-Christian Atheist Socialists in the Democratic Party are lying about everything they can find to lie about including the Muslims to cause secular Americans to hate Jews, the State of Israel and Christians and your own words are nothing other than propaganda to further your cause.

          • Here, Albright: Here’s the chart where Glenn Beck slams free enterprise. And you support him.

            http://timpanogos.wordpress.com/2013/04/02/cscope-chart-glenn-beck-doesnt-want-you-to-see/

            You guys have a lot of gall, to slander free enterprise, attack the teachers who teach free markets, and claim to be doing good.

            God has a special place in hell, etc., etc.

          • Are you trying to make a bigger fool out of yourself than you already have in your painting Glen Beck is the anti-Christian that you and your Socialists in the Democratic Party are. You are a fake.

          • And the horse you rode in on.

          • The horse our are riding in your anti-Christian crusade is called the Democratic Socialism, which is more propaganda to hide that it is not Democratic at all, but rather it is based on the Fabian style of indoctrinating the targeted society to want what the Socialists want and when they see that their propaganda has socially engineered enough support their Socialist judges over throw the laws that are in opposition their cause. In the USA the laws banning homosexuality in the USA were overthrown by Socialist judges after they socially engineered Americans to think that over throwing these laws were a good idea. This evil engineering scheme was started for the single purpose of obtaining enough votes to take control of the US government so the Socialists can fully implement their anti-Christian Socialist government in the USA. You’re a sick evil people Ed and you are the problem in the world that has to be eradicated in order to take the world off your demonically driven destructive path and put it back on a path of peace.

      • You are correct, but they got fooled. This is indeed indoctrination. This has been an issue for some time, but the MSM never put it out there. It is anti American propaganda spoon fed in secret power point presentations.
        Glenn Beck thinks its a progressive initiative, but its a pro Islamist tenant.

        • How is it indoctrination to study about other religions? What is the answer to the question, what makes you think this is a problem — what are the other questions on this test?

          Are you unfamiliar with Ephesians 6:11-13 — and isn’t this study almost commanded by that scripture?

        • How is it indoctrination to study world religions? For 250 years, that has been the duty of patriots like George Washington, Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson.

          When did we stop following their good examples?

          • Your sources are not for the purpose of studying but rather they are propaganda designed to socially engineer secular Americans and who ever else they can deceive into accepting Muslims by painting a false picture of them and to hide that the Socialists are really conspiring with Muslim terrorists against Jews, the state of Israel and Christians.

          • Studying history is not “indoctrination.” Churchill noted that it was the best study a lover of freedom can make — and there’s a guy who lived in the heart of “other religionville.”

            Have you ever studied history, Mr. Albright? Have you ever studied the world’s great religions?

            Have you ever had to defend your faith against unfair attacks, or worse, silly attacks from people intent on doing you harm?

            This is not a friendly world, necessarily. Our kids need to be prepared. They need to know the stuff you want to keep then ignorant of.

          • Your sources are not propaganda, Mr. Albright?

            Please review your notes from Rhetoric 101, your notes (from Texas high school history, I trust) on what propaganda is.

            And, have you ever read the U.S. Constitution? I commend it highly, along with Jefferson’s outline for good government, “Notes on the State of Virginia.”

            Glenn Beck is anti-Boy Scout, anti-American farmer, anti-government. Were he not already a U.S. citizen, don’t you think he’d be a prime candidate to be renegade imam in London? Or Guantanamo?

            Get serious.

          • You evade my point and make false claims about what I don’t want children exposed to. If you studied world religions and history in high school, college, or through the Socialist media outlets, such as the History Channel it is Socialist Atheist anti-Christian propaganda. Have you ever studied history outside of these evil anti-Christian sources. I don’t want children exposed to the lies being disseminated through the Socialist propaganda machine.

          • Who watches the History Channel? Social studies teachers in Texas don’t have the time; many don’t bother for cable.

            You need to get more sources, too.

          • It is teachers that I hold responsible, who are telling the lies in the History channel documentaries and in their classrooms that are designed to socially engineer secular Americans to hate Christians, Jews and the State of Israel and to think that the Muslim crusade against the aforementioned are the right thing to do and join.

        • I find Glenn Beck badly informed, and a poor source. He thinks being progressive is a problem, which only demonstrates he’s extremely, excessively, and pathologically confused.

          What does he want, regressivism?

          It is not “pro-Islamist” to study world religions. That’s called “civilization.”

          • Let’s define a progressive, who are really modern Communists: someone that has or supports having sexual relations like a stray dog does in a neighborhood and then kills their unwanted children and thinks it is ok, someone who thinks that homosexuality, transgender and pedophilia are normal genetic evolutionary behavior that should be accepted by all, someone who thinks that the world is billions of years old, the ice age ended in 10,000 BC, man came into being through evolution and that global warming is man made, someone who thinks that all religions are man made in order to get man through the rough times, except Atheism, which they claim is based on their science while they claim that their science is not Atheism, someone that supports the Socialist’s interpretation of separation of church and state, which is nothing other than Socialist censorship, through which they censor what Christians can and cannot say while they are employed by or attend a tax payer funded institution or hold a public office, someone that brings Muslim terrorists to the USA to build a voter base among them and includes their open anti-Christian/Semitic rantings on college campuses and in organized protests in the face of Christians and Jews in their Socialist anti-Christian agenda in the USA, someone who thinks Israel is occupying the State of Israel and who supports the Muslim terrorists claim to the land of Israel, someone who thinks it was a good idea to violently overthrow Mubarak in Egypt, Gadaffi in Libya, President Saleh in Yemen and the ongoing violent overthrow of Assad in Syria, and someone who votes for someone who supports one or more or all of the above base on what they believe with out caring about the other issues that they support the don’t directly effect them.

          • I really liked your answer. I was told about ten years ago by an Egyptian, that we didn’t know what we were doing, by overthrowing Saddam Hussein. First he said that a lot of them are a bunch of ignorant animals over there. He said there are basically three factions over there, the Sunnis, Shiites and the Curd’s. They All hated each other and you had to use force to control them. There is no other way, you could try and divide Iraq in to thirds. But then they would be fighting over who got what.

          • After I posted the comment I realized that I forgot to add that a progressive is also someone who aids while they turns there back to Muslims and Communists killing Christians through out the earth.

          • It’s actually called stupidity. Glenn Beck is remarkably well informed, and the two of you arguing here are poorly informed religious cranks. Yes, the study of history should be a priority for everyone hoping not to repeat it.

            One further thing; “the world’s great religions”—there are none. Christopher Hitchens was correct; religion poisons everything. In any case, I imagine you would list islam as a ‘great religion’, Mr Darrell, in which case, what arrant nonsense! islam is the demented ravings of a murderous paedophile, it contains nothing of any worth to humankind, and it’s devious, murderous, largely illiterate, inbred followers are perpetuating a sickening “old boys’ club” of sexual deviates who treat women as animalistic chattels–lower than camels.

          • Regardless whatever you regard as “arrant nonsense,” (“errant,” perhaps?), the question and the lesson behind it are straight up discussions of Islam as a faith held by a billion people.

            Accurate, and necessary for study. The curriculum looks solid, to historians, to sociologists, and to teachers who are charged with informing Texas youth.

            You wish it would be a diatribe against Islam? Too bad.

            That’s not what teachers are supposed to do, under Texas rules (or good sense).

            A little bit of knowledge is better than ignorance in all cases.

          • Cscope is not education it is Socialist propaganda designed to socially engineer children to think good things about an evil religion in order to get them to join the Socialists in their conspiracy with the Muslims against Jews, the state of Israel and Christians.

          • Seriously, see your physician. Algebra instruction is not “Socialist propaganda.” World history study of the greater religions in history is, according to Jefferson, Herodatus, Washington, Churchill, Teddy Roosevelt, Lincoln, and all people with working gray matter, essential to understanding the world.

            A study of world history IS designed to “socially engineer children,” but to design them to think critically about tough issues. We don’t want to be caught with our pants down like we were in World War I, Korea, Vietnam, Iran in 1979, or New York on 9/11, again. Studying history is the foundation of achieving the knowledge to prevent such catastrophes.

            You’re one of a tiny handful of people who appear to oppose education across the board — a large handful, if we include the generals who run North Korea. But still just a handful.

            There is a reason it was against the law to teach slaves in the U.S. to read, and to read history. The intent was to keep them from knowing the world has better places, that their world could be a better place, and to prevent them from having the tools to get freedom — information, and education.

            You’ve been challenged to demonstrate where Islam links up with socialism, and you have utterly and completely failed to present even a scintilla of a case.

            We know what your hallucinations are. The rest of us deal with facts.

            You’re not waving the American flag. Please repent.

          • The difference between you and Washington is that he is a Christian and you are an anti-Christian Atheist Socialist who is lying with all you have to protect your conspiracy with the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization against Jews, the State of Israel and Christians, which is part of the fulfillment of Rev 18:2, which foretold that Babylon the great, which Jesus revealed to me and sent me out to tell His people is the USA, would become a prison for every hateful bird, which includes the Atheist Socialists in the Democratic Party and your Muslim terrorist cohorts.
            I have shown you the link but you are outright lying with all you have to cover up your evil conspiracy against Christians that you share with your evil Muslim cohorts. You and your Socialist Democratic Party are my proof that the Bible is true because you prove that there is a Devil because everything that you say is right is what the Bible says is wrong. Your lies show that you are the Devil’s child.
            You shoot yourself in the foot because you are describing how your predecessors in the Democratic Party dealt with slavery through legislation that reversed the Republican legislation to stop slavery. It was the Democratic Party that implemented the Poll Tax and formed the KKK, which lynched freed black Americans in order to stop them from voting so that they could push their pro-slavery agenda again in the government. The Democratic Party is the preferred party for the Devil’s people.
            However, just keep watching as everything I was shown to be the fulfillment of Bible prophecy comes true and maybe you will believe in Jesus and by this see correctly for the first time in your life.

        • Your are totally right in your comment. Just like if you say something about Obama, they call you a racist. If you say something against Islam, they say you are Islamophobic. To see brain washing at its best, watch the propaganda that either the White House or the Islamic’s put out.

  4. You can’t answer the question? That’s an anti-Sharia question, isn’t it?

    Maybe not, if you don’t know history, don’t know the answer.

    • Ed…

      Studying other religions is one thing, but coercing children to wear islamic dress, going to and/or praying in a mosque, feeding them half truths presented as “fact” or teaching them “semi-truths”, and intentionally leaving out “the whole truth” about islam, is indeed indoctrination. They are masters of deception.

      It might be a watered down version, but it is still a form of weakening, or at least “controlling” a child’s attitude toward the subject.
      A very sly form of manipulation.

      Up here in Canada, some PUBLIC high schools in Toronto have “prayer rooms” set up for muslim student’s for Friday prayers!!!!
      WTF!!!
      Try that for Jews, or Jehovah’s Witnesses, or Pentecostals…!!!

      R-I-G-H-T!!!

      Preparing and giving students white washed tests about all the
      “good things islamic” and leaving out the real islamic doctrine presented in their koran, haddith, sunna or reliance of the traveller, is essentially lying to them.

      It is lying in the most deceptive, evil form.

      Islam functions and thrives on this…they tell the infidel all the seemingly inocuous things about islam, taken for the most part out of context, and hide the rotten crap, because he knows most of us won’t bother to research their garbage because most of us don’t care; until maybe, just maybe, it’s too late.

      But don’t kid yourself…they have an agenda and they are doing a masterfull job of moving it forward.

      • Studying other religions is one thing, but coercing children to wear islamic dress, going to and/or praying in a mosque, feeding them half truths presented as “fact” or teaching them “semi-truths”, and intentionally leaving out “the whole truth” about islam, is indeed indoctrination.

        None of that happened in Texas. Nothing like that is in CSCOPE materials.

        If you’re going to gripe about accuracy, YOU must tell the truth, and the whole truth.

        • Is the Ten Commandments allowed to be displayed on Texas School Property?

        • The inclusion of Islam in the public schools has noting to do with learning about other religions, but rather it is part of the Socialist anti-Christians agenda in the USA. The Socialists share a common hatred towards Christians, Jews and the State of Israel with the Muslims and they are socially engineering their future secular voter base to accept and eventually join the Socialists in supporting their Muslim warriors who are currently fighting their proxy war against Jews, the state of Israel and Christians for them. The Socialists in the Democratic Party will more openly fight against the Christians and the Jews as their propaganda has more of an effect on their supporters and they feel they can get away with it.

        • STUDENTS MADE TO WEAR BURQAS – IN TEXAS
          Muslim garb taught as alternative dress – not oppressive to women

          WND
          February 24, 2013
          by JOHN GRIFFING

          There’s a new controversy in Texas involving the online public school curriculum called CSCOPE, which already has been the subject of heated debate and state legislative hearings.

          There are reports now that students were made to wear Muslim burqas as part of their public school lessons.

          CSCOPE has been facing criticism over its alleged Islamic and anti-American bias. It is a “curriculum management system” now used in 80 percent of Texas classrooms. It recently was the subject of a heated inquiry that culminated in hearings conducted by the Texas Senate Education Committee chaired by state Sen. Dan Patrick, R-Houston.

          According to a joint press release by Patrick, State Board of Education Chairwoman Barbara Cargill and CSCOPE representatives, CSCOPE ultimately agreed to “significant changes.” But it is unclear when the changes will take place and whether or not the pledged cooperation is legally binding or simply to mollify critics.

          WND contacted Patrick’s office but has been unable to obtain documentation confirming whether CSCOPE compliance is required or optional.

          He did release a statement: “Be assured we are working on this issue as is the SBOE almost every day. The hearing was step one, the letter step two. The only thing that is binding from a legislative standpoint is legislation. We are working on those issues based on what we are discovering now. We are doing our job, one that must be thorough and will take time.”

          CSCOPE has come under fire for controversial curriculum content, including accusations of multiple lessons showing a pro-Islamic agenda. CSCOPE representatives had claimed that such content had been “taken out of context” or that they were “old lessons that have since been taken down.”

          CSCOPE proponents have denied the existence of such lessons, or, when faced with documentation, have dismissed critics’ claims as exaggerations.

          However, in Lumberton, Texas, this week, high school girls were made to wear burqas as part of a CSCOPE study of Islam.

          One student quoted the teacher as saying, “We are going to work to change your perception of Islam.”

          The teacher in the burqa lesson, according to a student, also said, “I do not necessarily agree with this, but I am supposed to teach you that we are not to call these people terrorists anymore, but freedom fighters.”

          Critics argue that this should not be a teacher’s role, and are concerned that CSCOPE curriculum appears agenda-driven.

          According to a student in the class, the lesson was to teach about the life of women in Islam. The burqa exercise focused on fashion and did not include the fact that in many Muslim communities, women who appear in public without a burqa face being beaten, imprisoned or murdered by family members, vigilante groups or even the state.

          At the end of class, the students were assigned to write a paper about Egypt. According to one student, they were instructed to discuss “how Egypt was a good country until democracy took over, and that things were finally corrected when the Muslim Brotherhood came into power.”

          Muslim women are portrayed as liberated in CSCOPE literature. In a lesson titled “Thinking About Sexuality” that utilizes a series of film clips, students are asked, “What do the women portrayed in these film clips think Islam teaches about sexuality? How are their thoughts similar or dissimilar to your own ideas about sexuality?”

          Under the subheading “For further discussion,” select quotes from Muslim women are included for student reflection.

          A women named Harlina Halizah says: “I don’t think it is fair to say that Islam restricts your sexual desire. It is more directing it toward a more purposeful kind of life.”

          Halizah goes on to say, “I don’t need to be liberated. I was born a free person.”

          Students are then asked: “Do you agree? What would you define as the criteria for being ‘liberated’?”

          Another Muslim female prototype, Zainah Anwar, is quoted under the subheading “Thinking about Gender Relations.”

          “We found that it is not Islam that discriminates against women, it is not the verses in the Quran, it is the way that these verses have been interpreted by men, living in patriarchal societies who wish to maintain their dominance, and their superiority and control over women.”

          To get a better understanding, WND reached out to Mary Bowen. Bowen is a teacher of more than 30 years with a masters degree in curriculum who recently testified before the Senate Education Committee about CSCOPE’s academic deficiencies and its politically driven nature.

          Commenting on a picture in the curriculum of smiling Muslim children, Bowen said, “I wonder if they have been taught that the women they are representing cannot drive, cannot be schooled, that they do not have legal birth records and if they are accused of rape/sexual impropriety their father can legally take them out on the patio and kill them like a dog without legal penalty.

          “I just wonder if they are being taught the real story behind the burqa.”

          CSCOPE has been heavily criticized by parents and teachers for other controversial content. One lesson from a CSCOPE social studies unit teaches students that communism is the highest attainable economic system and that capitalism is merely an evolutionary step on the ladder. The lesson calls communism a system in which “all people work together for everyone” It shows a man climbing stairs towards a communist pinnacle. Capitalism is defined as a system in which “all people strive to fulfill their own needs and wants” and is at the bottom of the included handout.

          A civics unit defines political viewpoints and paradigms on a continuum. Fascism/Nazism are regarded as “conservative,” in spite of the fact that they dictate total state control and ownership of resources, while conservatism favors less government and wide economic and political freedom.

          Republicans are defined as favoring “big business over labor unions.”

          Democrats are defined this way: “Will spend more tax dollars on education to benefits [sic] each individual.”

          CSCOPE oversight legislation is pending in the Texas House of Representatives and took less than a week to gain the full support of a majority of representatives.

          In the meantime, teachers are legally required under CSCOPE contracts to teach only CSCOPE lessons and are not permitted to discuss content with parents and others in the community.

          PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS ON RISE – IN U.S.
          ‘It is dramatic, I have never seen levels of attacks like these’

          WND

          A report by two U.S.-based religious freedom groups says anti-Christian persecution is on the rise in America.

          The joint report by Texas-based Liberty Institute and Washington-based Family Research Council says groups like the American Civil Liberties Union aren’t the only culprits. The report says government agencies around the U.S. are trying to push Christian expression out the door.

          “It is dramatic,” says Liberty Institute Founder Kelly Shackleford, of the recent hike in reported incidents of persecution. “I have been doing these types of cases for almost 25 years now. I have never seen the levels of attacks like these and how quickly they are now proliferating.”

          Shackleford says government, from schools to social programs, is the ringleader.

          “There are children being prohibited from writing Merry Christmas to the soldiers, senior citizens being banned from praying over their meals in the Senior Center, the VA banning the mention of God in military funerals, numerous attempts to have veterans memorials torn down if they have any religious symbols such as a cross, and I could go on and on,” Shackleford said.

          See the film and PSA on eroding religious freedom that Chuck Norris says every American must watch!

          WND reported in August 2011 on the Houston, Texas, veterans’ cemetery director who issued an order banning God from military or veteran funerals at the facility.

          A pastor and family members of deceased veterans eventually filed a federal lawsuit alleging that the Houston National VA Cemetery is discriminating against their religious freedoms.

          The suit alleges that cemetery administrator Arleen Ocasio required pastor Scott Rainey to edit a Memorial Day prayer so that the prayer was “general, and its fundamental purpose [was] nondenominational in nature.”

          Christian civil rights organization ACLJ senior counsel David French says the exact rate of increase is hard to determine, but many of the new cases come from colleges.

          “Our knowledge of incidents is only as good as the reporting,” French says. “However, it’s clear that – particularly on college and university campuses – we have seen a significant rise in attempts to silence Christian organizations by the misapplication of nondiscrimination laws.”

          French adds that many public facilities are also covering over Christianity.

          “One of the most strident examples: the misuse of the Establishment Clause to attempt to ban any mention of God from historical markers, monuments or even museum exhibits,” French says. “This represents an effort to whitewash God from American history and change our national identity.”

          WND reported in February that the city of New York was attempting to cancel the leases of all church and religious groups renting city facilities.

          “Our view is that public school buildings, which are funded by taxpayers’ dollars, should not be used as houses of worship,” said Marge Feinberg, spokeswoman for New York City’s Department of Education. “Public school space cannot and should not be used for worship services, especially because school space is not equally available to all faiths.”

          Shackleford says the attacks are becoming violent, too.

          “The recent attacks on the faith-based Family Research Council and the attack on the Sikhs are recent examples alone,” Shackleford says.

          He also cites an example of a city trying to push out its Jewish residents.

          “In one case I was involved in, a city literally tried to zone out Orthodox Jews from the city. An official city meeting perpetrated this,” Shackleford says. “Some said, ‘Hitler should have finished the job.’”

          Shackleford claims the acts of persecution point to a deeply rooted spiritual issue.

          “Religious hostility is the red light on the dashboard that tells us we have a problem and that violence will come next if not fixed,” Shackleford says.

          French says although the Obama administration has contributed to the problem, the problem didn’t begin in 2008.

          “While the Obama administration launched its own unprecedented assault on religious liberty through Obamacare,” French says, “the attack on Christian expression is the result of cultural changes that have been taking place for decades.”

          Shackleford agrees.

          “The Obama administration has been very hostile, from the HHS mandates to the VA case to many, many more; but it has been getting worse and worse each administration,” Shackleford says. “Government always tries to increase its power, and freedom has been fading in the process. It has been a steady and consistent.”

          French says the current crisis has been brewing for decades.

          “No, the trend began with advent of the sexual revolution and the mainstreaming of the 1960s counterculture,” French claims. “As leftist radicals have progressed through the academy, media, churches and government, the trend has only accelerated.”

          Shackleford adds that some key court cases may have accelerated the trend.

          “The seeds for these attacks were dropped in a Supreme Court opinions in the ’40s, and it really began to take off in the 1960s. The thing that is shocking now, and different, is that the attacks have dramatically picked up speed,” Shackleford says. “There can be as many as 100 new attacks in a month. While Liberty Institute has the highest win rate of any group in the country at over 99 percent, we just can’t currently cover all these with our current resources.”

          Among the violations listed in the joint report:

          A federal judge threatened “incarceration” to a high school valedictorian unless she removed references to Jesus from her graduation speech.

          City officials prohibited senior citizens from praying over their meals, listening to religious messages or singing gospel songs at a senior activities center.

          A public school official physically lifted an elementary school student from his seat and reprimanded him in front of his classmates for praying over his lunch.

          Following U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ policies, a federal government official sought to censor a pastor’s prayer, eliminating references to Jesus, during a Memorial Day ceremony honoring veterans at a national cemetery.

          Public school officials prohibited students from handing out gifts because they contained religious messages.

          A public school official prevented a student from handing out flyers inviting her classmates to an event at her church.

          A public university’s law school banned a Christian organization because it required its officers to adhere to a statement of faith that the university disagreed with.

          The U.S. Department of Justice argued before the Supreme Court that the federal government can tell churches and synagogues which pastors and rabbis it can hire and fire.

          The State of Texas sought to approve and regulate what religious seminaries can teach.

          Through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, the federal government is forcing religious organizations to provide insurance for birth control and abortion-inducing drugs in direct violation of their religious beliefs.
          The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs banned the mention of God from veterans’ funerals, overriding the wishes of the deceased’s families.

          A federal judge held that prayers before a state House of Representatives could be to Allah but not to Jesus.

  5. Up here in Canada, some PUBLIC high schools in Toronto have “prayer rooms” set up for muslim student’s for Friday prayers!!!!

    Try that for Jews, or Jehovah’s Witnesses, or Pentecostals…!!!

    Here in Texas we allow Jews to wear yamulkas, we allow JWs NOT to celebrate holidays and birthdays. Pentacostals get to pray when they want.

    Jefferson said freedom of religion is for everyone, including Muslims. We honor the First Amendment in Texas. Sorry to hear you don’t like that to happen in Canada. We used to think you sane and friendly.

      Uttering ‘Jesus’ in school ‘not protected free speech’
      ‘Then they confiscated a little girl’s pencils since they mentioned God’

      Kelly Shackelford

      A hearing is scheduled Monday before the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans that could determine if students in elementary schools have the protections of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

      The case arose in the Plano Independent School District in Texas where Thomas Elementary School Principal Lynn Swanson and Rasor Elementary School Principal Jackie Bomchill were sued for restricting student speech when it referenced “God” or “Jesus.”

      According to the Liberty Institute, in the first incident, officials banning 8-year-old Jonathan Morgan from handing out candy canes with Jesus’ name on them to classmates at a school party.

      “Back Fired,” by William J. Federer, shows how the faith that gave birth to tolerance is no longer tolerated!

      “Then they confiscated a little girl’s pencils after school because they mentioned ‘God,'” the Institute reported.

      But that’s not all, the group said.

      “They even banned an entire classroom from writing ‘Merry Christmas’ on cards to our troops serving in Iraq.”

      The dispute went to district court then to a three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit where school officials’ efforts to have the complaint rejected because of their “immunity” failed.

      Now the appeals court has agreed to an en banc hearing in which 17 judges will listen to arguments and decide the dispute.

      The school officials are arguing “that the First Amendment does not apply to elementary school students,” explains the appeal brief submitted by Liberty Institute.

      They are claiming that the case is a dispute of “first impression,” – that is, the first time the question has been raised. Swanson and Bomchill are urging “that the First Amendment does not apply to elementary school students.”

      “According to school officials, ‘neither the Supreme Court nor this Court has ever extended First Amendment ‘freedom of speech’ protection to the distribution of non-curricular materials in public elementary schools,'” the brief explains.

      Liberty Institute asserts that “the First Amendment is not implicated by restrictions on student-to-student distribution of non-curricular materials by elementary school students to their classmates.”

      But Kelly Shackelford, the president and CEO of Liberty Institute, told WND the fundamental question in the disagreement is whether the appeals court will “strip away the First Amendment rights of kids and their parents in the schools.”

      “This is really serious, very dangerous,” he said, noting it would be the highest level for such a decision in the nation, short only a ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court.

      “This is chilling. What this means if they have no First Amendment rights is that they have no right to have a viewpoint different from the government,” he said.

      “If their parents wanted to protect them from punishment because they have a different view … they have no right to even protect them,” he said.

      Shackleford said the school officials’ argument essentially is: “Let’s say we did engage in religious discrimination. We can do it.”

      “If they win this case, they could silence 41 million American school kids and their parents,” the Institute explained.

      Shackelford sees the possibility of a slippery slope: If an elementary school student has no First Amendment rights, what about a middle school or junior high student. Then what about a high school student. And what about adults, too?

      He said a friend-of-the-court brief filed by the Association for Retarded Citizens noted that such deprivation of rights theoretically could be applied to an adult whose mental capacity would be adjudged to be that of a student-age child.

      “They saw the implications immediately even for adults,” he said.

      “This would be a massive transfer of power from citizens and students and their parents to the government. The government would decide whether students have those rights.”

      But he said the Constitution lacks any statement “that those rights don’t come into existence until the government approves.”

      “All citizens have those protections,” he said.

      A message left by WND with the school district seeking comment did not generate a response.

      Shackelford said there is reason for alarm because the 5th Circuit’s panel had decided in favor of the students, and the full panel of the court now is being convened, a rare occurrence in itself.

      He said generally such en banc hearings are held only when there is major disagreement with the outcome from the panel’s ruling.

      But he said Paul Clement and Ken Starr, both former solicitors general for the United States government, are arguing on the side of the students on Monday.

      “If you have kids, grandkids, or if you don’t, do you want future kids to be told they have no right to respectfully and in a nondisruptive manner express their opinions, unless their views agree with the government?” he asked.

      “What have we just created for our future citizenry?”

      The organization has set up a special FirstAmendmentFreedoms.LibertyInstitute.org website to document the case and its arguments.

      He said he is pleading with Christian organizations and groups to be in prayer this weekend over the arguments and the outcome.

      According to the pleading, “Whatever confusion may exist about student speech and the Religion Clauses, the confusion does not extend to the fundamental principle that school officials may not discriminate against student speech solely because it expresses a religious viewpoint.”

      It explains school officials, in this case Bomchill, while allowing other students to hand out essentially whatever they chose, banned a student, Stephanie, from handing to her friends two pencils – one that said “moon” and another that said, “Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so.”

      “Stephanie’s mother was unable to secure a meeting with Bomchill before the party. She thus arrived early on the day of the party and went to Bomchill’s office with the tray of brownies, each individual wrapped with two pencils. … The head of security handed Stephanie’s mother a letter that erroneously alleged that she had distributed material to students on school property. The letter warned that ‘police’ involvement would follow if she failed to submit material for pre-clearance or leave school grounds when asked,” said the brief.

      “Bomchill then repeated the accusations and stated that Stephanie would be in ‘trouble’ if any more ‘religious’ material were distributed to her friends and classmates. … After Stephanie’s mother left, two police cars pulled her over. …”

      “Indeed, Swanson and Bomchill seemingly permitted schoolchildren to express their views without meaningful restriction from any conceivable standpoint, except the standpoint of religious faith,” said the brief.

      Continued the brief, “No case has ever suggested that school officials may selectively target student speech in elementary schools solely because it expresses a religious and no secular viewpoint.”

    • The Socialists in the Democratic Party in the military in Texas are forcing their anti-Christian agenda at VA cemeteries.

      Houston National Cemetery
      A pastor and family members of deceased veterans have filed a federal lawsuit alleging that the Houston National VA Cemetery is discriminating against their religious freedoms after the cemetery administrator banned using God’s name in memorial services.

      The suit alleges that cemetery administrator Arleen Ocasio required Pastor Scott Rainey to edit a Memorial Day prayer so that the prayer was “general, and its fundamental purpose” was “nondenominational in nature.”

      WND reported in June that the Houston Area Pastor’s Council demanded that Ocasio be removed from her position.

      Liberty Institute President and Chief Counsel Kelly Shackelford represents the families and he says the legal challenge has been launched.

      “The plaintiffs believe their First Amendment religious liberties have been violated and a lawsuit has already been filed,” Shackelford said.

      “Our attorneys have deposed Arleen Ocasio who is the director of the Houston VA Cemetery where a number of these instances occurred,” Shackelford said.

      The Liberty Institute president says the litigation’s purpose is simple.

      “We’re going to declare these policies unconstitutional and if we do, they’ll never be able to have these policies again,” Shackelford said.

      Shackelford says the plaintiffs and his organization are prepared to continue the fight.

      “There will be more depositions to follow unless they sign the consent decree at some point.” Shackelford said.

      The consent decree Shackelford mentioned was the first legal action taken. Shackelford’s team went to a federal judge in Houston and asked the judge to sign the decree.

      Shackelford explains what’s involved with such a decree.

      “Basically it would involve them stopping what they’ve been doing to all of the veterans. In particular and most importantly it would involve them changing the written policies that are in place that are leading to discrimination,” Shackelford said.

      The Liberty Institute lawsuit is based on the First and Fifth Amendments to the U. S. Constitution. The suit is also based on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

      The suit’s request is for an injunction that would order the VA and the Houston National Cemetery to cease the alleged violations, and it is based on the legal precedent set by the court case, Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics.

      The policies Shackelford references are in the VA regulations covering the NCA (National Cemetery Administration). NCA Directive 3170, Appendix D states that, “Any invocation or benediction must be inclusive and non-derogatory.”

      Another section in the policy requires that the “ceremony or special event must be nonpartisan, inclusive, and non-derogatory in nature.”

      Shackelford explains that both parties and the judge would have to reach an agreement before the consent decree can be issued.

      “They would have to agree to what we agree to, and then the judge would sign it and we would be done. As of this point, they’re looking at it very seriously but they haven’t completely agreed to all points,” Shackelford said.

      “But we’re still in negotiations over it,” Shackelford added.

      If the decree is signed, the VA will voluntarily change its regulations.

      The Veteran’s Administration has not responded to WND’s request for comment.

      Shackelford says some of the families are very vocal about this case and have agreed to tell their stories on video. Some of those stories can be seen on Liberty Institute’s Don’t Tear Us Down website.

      Shackelford says the feelings of those family members point to a major problem. The cemetery has banned God’s name because someone may be offended by mentioning God.

      “And the problem is almost all of the major burial rituals, the VFW and all of them, have mentions of God in them. In ways like ‘God and country,’ and then I think the VFW one ends with ‘May God grant your family, grace, mercy and peace,” Shackelford said.

      “The fact of what they are doing is that they are banning the burial rituals that have been said for over a hundred years,” Shackelford said.

      The complaint filed in the Texas federal court states that during negotiations over the issue, the cemetery administrator said she was following VA regulations.

      “During a meeting in which counsel for all parties were present, Director Ocasio stated that she was enforcing VA policy that all prayers need to be ‘inclusive’ and ‘non-denominational’ when editing Pastor Rainey’s Memorial Day prayer. She further stated that she believed her interpretation of this VA policy was correct and would still be in effect for future special events such as Memorial Day,” the complaint said.

      The Liberty Institute conducted an investigation prior to filing its complaint in Houston federal court and discovered that the Houston VA cemetery has allegedly committed other acts of religious discrimination.

      “During its investigation, Liberty Institute confirmed that Houston National Cemetery officials, including Ocasio, are discriminating against the private religious speech and expression of the Veterans of Foreign Wars District 4, The American Legion Post 586, and the National Memorial Ladies. Liberty Institute also confirmed that the cemetery chapel has been closed and its Bible and cross were removed,” the complaint stated.

      The suit also alleges that Ocasio has told volunteer groups that mention of God is forbidden in condolence cards, that gifts by the National Memorial Ladies to family members are prohibited and that private funeral homes may not offer the option of prayer to families of the deceased.

      The VFW District 6, the American Legion Post 586, the National Memorial Ladies also are plaintiffs in the case.

      Another plaintiff is Rainey, whose prayer was the subject of Ocasio’s complaint, and James Haycraft, who buried his brother Ernest Paul Edgell at the cemetery.

      Other parties in the lawsuit are Lisa Ward, who buried her husband Richard Ward, a 30-year military veteran, and Geraldine Lakey, who buried her husband Danny, a military veteran and a lifetime member of Tomball, Texas, VFW Post 2427.

        The truth?

        Check the Houston Chronicle (and this article is relatively biased your way, I’d say):

        Hit with lawsuit, VA denies banning ‘God’ at services
        VA: Invoking God at services OK
        It says religious speech is allowed and common — but lawsuit disagrees

        LINDSAY WISE, HOUSTON CHRONICLE | June 30, 2011

        The Department of Veterans Affairs on Thursday said that invoking the name of God or Jesus is not only allowed, but common at VA National Cemeteries across the country.

        Local veterans and volunteer groups have accused VA officials of censoring religious speech — including the words Jesus and God — at Houston National Cemetery.

        In one example cited in documents filed this week in federal court, cemetery director Arleen Ocasio reportedly told volunteers with the National Memorial Ladies that they had to stop telling families “God bless you” at funerals and that they had to remove the words “God bless” from condolence cards.

        Ocasio has not responded to the Houston Chronicle’s requests for comment, but other VA officials say national cemeteries welcome appropriate religious recitations.

        “VA values and respects every veteran and their family’s right to a burial service that honors their faith tradition,” Keith Ethridge, director of VA’s National Chaplain Center, said in a statement. “VA employs nearly 1,000 chaplains who, every year, preside over thousands of religious burial services, representing veterans of all faiths.”

        Among the allegations raised in a federal civil suit against VA is a claim that Ocasio did not allow volunteer honor guards to recite prayers at funerals without approval of the deceased veteran’s family.

        The catch, according to the suit, was that the honor guards couldn’t get approval because they were forbidden from providing optional texts to the families for consideration.

        Cemetery guidelines released by VA on Thursday appeared to confirm that VA’s National Cemetery Administration does not allow volunteer honor guards to submit any texts to veterans’ families for review.

        Prior restraint?

        Such a policy is an unconstitutional prior restraint on speech, said Hiram Sasser, director of litigation for the Liberty Institute, a nonprofit that filed the suit.

        “In this case they’re telling private citizens that their speech is banned, and they’re banned from even talking to the families and letting the families even know that there are options, religious or not religious,” Sasser said.

        A memo released by VA on Thursday was sent to all VA cemetery directors on Nov. 1, 2007, by William Tuerk, under secretary for Memorial Affairs at the time.

        It states that cemetery employees, including VA-sponsored volunteer honor guards, “shall not provide texts of any such recitations to the deceased’s survivors for consideration.”
        ‘She was told to do this’

        Similar language is used in a document titled, “Houston National Cemetery Honor Guard Guidelines.” It is signed by Ocasio and dated March 15.

        “I guess at least now we know why Ms. Ocasio was doing what she was doing,” Sasser said. “She was told to do this. To find out that that’s part of the national policy, that’s shockingly unbelievable.”

        Neither the NCA memo nor the Houston National Cemetery guidelines released Thursday ban the words God or Jesus. They do list some limitations on texts, but those limitations do not include religious language.

        “VA will not accept for reading any texts that would, as determined by the cemetery director, have an adverse impact on the dignity and solemnity of a cemetery honoring those who served the Nation,” the guidelines say. “Among the texts that would not be read would be those that are obscene, racist, are ‘fighting words,’ or are coarse, abusive or politically partisan.”

        Ocasio’s guidelines for honor guards in Houston permit a veteran’s family to request a member of the clergy to conduct a brief religious service, which may include a reading from scriptures or a brief prayer.

        The guidelines state that military honors at funerals should consist only of the “core elements” of flag folding, presentation of the flag to survivors, playing of Taps and a rifle salute. Any additions can be made only at the request of the veteran’s family.

        The latest allegations of religious hostility at Houston National Cemetery add fuel to a controversy that first erupted last month over Pastor Scott Rainey’s prayer in Jesus’ name at a Memorial Day service.

        U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes ruled May 26 that the government couldn’t stop Rainey from using the words “Jesus Christ” in his invocation at the cemetery. Hughes issued a temporary restraining order to prevent VA from censoring Rainey’s prayer.

        Liberty Institute, which filed that suit on Rainey’s behalf, amended it Monday to include additional allegations of religious discrimination by cemetery officials against American Legion Post 586, Veterans of Foreign Wars District 4 and the National Memorial Ladies, a volunteer group that attends funerals of fallen service members.
        Congressmen speak up

        The controversy shows no signs of letting up, especially now that lawmakers have jumped into the fray.

        U.S. Rep. Ted Poe, R-Humble, sent a letter this week to VA Secretary Eric Shinseki, asking for an investigation and calling for Ocasio’s termination if the allegations against her are true.

        Congressman Gene Green, D-Houston, whose father is buried at a VA National Cemetery, also voiced his concern. In a statement released Thursday, Green said freedom of speech and religion is a constitutional right that veterans buried at all national cemeteries fought for and defended.

        “I believe all faiths should have the freedom to honor our Veterans, and it is unacceptable for the government to try to deny that right,” Green said.

        So it’s not that the government bans religious expression — it’s that the government cannot condone one religion’s expression over all others.

        And that pisses you off, so you complain that you’re not allowed to have your faith dominate all others.

        I’ve heard that complaint somewhere else on this thread, but as I recall, you were on the other side of the issue, then.

      Preparing and giving students white washed tests about all the
      “good things islamic” and leaving out the real islamic doctrine presented in their koran, haddith, sunna or reliance of the traveller, is essentially lying to them.

      You’re exaggerating error about one milk-toast question out of about 400 question in one of a couple of dozen curricula.

      You don’t know the question about Islam. You haven’t see the question on Christianity, or Hinduism, or Judaism. You ignore 99.99999% of the material, and pass an incorrect judgment on what caught your eye.

      Academic rigor is a good idea. You should try it sometime
      *******************************************************************
      Tell me please, what is exaggerated about that statement?
      Not one thing!
      Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism do not have the same doctrine, or agenda or “dogma” that islam has.

      Name me one other “religion” that currently gives instructions to it’s members to kill the unbeliever,
      Yes…in the dark past, many religions were very violent and twisted…but in today’s world…name one other than islam, that is MANDATED to kill those who disagree with them?
      Also, how many instill allegiance to their belief by threatening to kill any who wishes to leave said religion????

      HMMMMMMMMMMMMM??????

      Ed, Ed, Ed,….give your head a shake!!!!

      • BUT we don’t set up special times and special areas in our public schools for them. We don’t change our dietary ingredients so as not to “offend them”, as is done in some of our schools, and especially in Britain.

        We set up special places for any faith that asks, generally. We accommodate a student’s free exercise of religion. Find any faith that requires accommodation, and if it’s practiced by more than a dozen kids at any school, we probably accommodate it.

        Your complaint about a separate room for prayer for Muslims is an indicator of how unconscious you are of other people. In Britain, and in the U.S., Muslims pray where they are. Students of other faiths complained; a room was set up to accommodate the non-Muslims. As with Scout camps that don’t open on certain religious days, depending on predominant religions in the area, we are often oblivious to the accommodations that do exist.

        But, just as the law is that Christian kid can pray at almost any time (not kneeling on the stairway during a fire evacuation), U.S. schools are required by law to accommodate faiths. See the statement of the law here (still active, still accurate): http://www.lb5.uscourts.gov/ArchivedURLs/Files/09-40373%281%29.pdf

        It’s part of what makes our nation great. In fact, it was that freedom which saved us in the War of 1812, when Stephen Girard personally footed the bill for the U.S. end of the war, because alone of all nations on Earth, we accommodated his beliefs.

        Yes, we do change our dietary requirements for various faiths, and for various cultures. Public schools in Jewish and Islamic neighborhoods don’t serve pork; some schools keep kosher or halal. Schools in Hindu neighborhoods have vegetarian menus.

        This is America, not the Soviet Union.

        Children are denied bringing ham sandwiches for their lunch because some muslim will be OFFENDED!!!

        That is internet legend, I suspect. The laws affect what officials do, and accommodate what schools do. Unless a kid is using his ham sandwich to torment a kid of another faith that regards pork as unclean, why would a school do that?

        I suspect your Hemingway detector isn’t working well.

      • Preparing and giving students white washed tests about all the “good things islamic” and leaving out the real islamic doctrine presented in their koran, haddith, sunna or reliance of the traveller, is essentially lying to them.

        Just as leaving out the torture committed during the Inquisition would be lying about Christianity, leaving out the slaughter of the Delawares and Lenni Lenape would be lying to them, etc., etc.

        But the problem here is that you’ve focused on one question. I can’t find, and I’ll wager you can’t find and don’t know, what else is in that lesson plan. The PowerPoint posted in violation of copyright is wholly accurate and unoffensive (except for violating rules against Death by PowerPoint, but the critics don’t care if the students find the information compelling or interesting, I gather — it’s not education that the CSCOPE critics care about).

        You can’t say it’s a white-washed test; you’ve shown only one question. How many were there? 100? 50? 25? What was the test to cover — one part of one unit? An entire unit? What were the other questions?

        Why would you call it white-washed? You claim it pushes a religion on someone — but it doesn’t. It’s ABOUT a religion’s tenets, not advocating them (though I’m sure it pains some bigots to know “Islam” means “peace”).

        The question says nothing about the great Islamic accomplishments in science and mathematics, stuff that was hundreds of years ahead of its time, stuff that we teach in Air Force navigation school today (that must frost the hell out of you, to know that in order to send bombs to Iraq, Air Force navigators have to learn Islamic astronomy . . .).

        Leaving out the answer to the question, the TEKS the question was aimed at, the name and content of the unit, even the name of the course (do you know what course that test came from) is telling less than a half-truth.

        When you get those problems fixed, when you know what we’re talking about and can let everybody else in on the secret, come back and complain to me about how cursorily all religions are covered in Texas curricula. All this hoo-haw on one question only demonstrates the complete breakdown of the educational background of critics, who lack most critical analysis tools they should have gotten in junior high language courses. Why should we worry about one question, which is not advocating anything, and is only a small part of a very big topic?

        Do you know? Please explain.

        • The Socialists propaganda machine is full of misinformation, such as you foolishly bellowed in your comment, that is designed to cause ignorant people like you Ed to become closet haters of Christians, Jews and the State of Israel. The Socialists in the Democratic Party and you Ed are the children of the mis-named “Enlightenment” people who arose with in the Holy Roman Empire as it declined and who conducted the Inquisition, in which Catholics, not Christians and your pre-Enlightenment Atheist ancestors killed the Christians for teaching their Christian beliefs instead of the Catholic beliefs. Back in those days your pre-Enlightenment ancestors were baptized Catholics, who superficially went along with the Catholic ruling philosophy, because in those days they had to if they wanted to become prominent and wealthy in that society. When the aristocrats in the Holy Roman Empire lost their ability to rule over their subjects the aristocratic Atheists were able to and began openly propagandizing their Atheist religion in the schools and colleges in Europe. In the light of the failing Catholic ruling philosophy the Enlightenment aristocrats, who were among the Catholic aristocrats, copied their repressive, censoring, indoctrinating style of rule and changed the national religion to Atheism and began to grow In Europe. The Enlightenment aristocrats spawned the anti-Christian Communists, Socialist and Fascists who took over the idea of using the government to persecute Christians and Jews from the Catholics.

          Wikipedia
          The Inquisition (Inquisitio Haereticae Pravitatis; Inquiry on Heretical Perversity) was a group of institutions within the judicial system of the Roman Catholic Church whose aim was to “fight against heretics”. It started in 12th-century France to combat the spread of heresy and error, and was later expanded to other European countries[1], as well as throughout the Spanish and Portuguese empires in the Americas, Asia and Africa. [2]

      • Tell me please, what is exaggerated about that statement?

        The claim that the test question supports Islam over any other faith? It’s exaggerated, yes.

        The question, by itself, does not promote anything at all. It’s not even a good push-question for a push-poll (and, yes, I’ve experience in putting together push-polls for GOP candidates).

        You can’t pass judgment on that question without knowing what the answer is (and it grows more and more obvious that many in this discussion don’t know what the correct answer is), nor without knowing what else is there. If the other questions are all push-questions on the glories of Islam over any other faith, you might have a point.

        But how would the typical Baptist or Methodist high school kid in class react to that material? You appear to think Texas kids are all stupid, and they are not. Obviously, you’ve never faced a class of Texas Baptist kids discussing any faith, let alone other faiths.

        Not one thing!
        Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism do not have the same doctrine, or agenda or “dogma” that islam has.

        Can you detail for me the difference between how Jews treat aid to the poor and disadvantaged, versus how Christians regard it, and how Islam treats it? For fun, toss in Hindus and Buddhists. Can you discuss the differences? Can you tell me how, in that context, the first choice on the question is right or wrong, or would present an accurate or inaccurate portrayal of Islam?

        Critically for that question, can you tell us how Sharia influences the three choices that it does influence?

        Is that bad or good? I’ll wager that if someone told you Christian influence on U.S. law is bad, you’d come unglued. But if you want to make a case that such a statement is in error, you need to know something about how Christian doctrine influences U.S. law, and where, and how much, and whether it would conflict with other religious doctrine, and whether anyone should be concerned about it.

        I’ve seen no such analysis of Question 28 that covers any of those issues, for Islam and Sharia. Can you point us to it, or make the analysis yourself?

        Without that analysis, the criticism is only an attempt to sow the wind.

        Name me one other “religion” that currently gives instructions to it’s members to kill the unbeliever,

        Fortunately, Judaism and Christianity have abandoned that tradition, right?

        Crusades are a thing of the past, right?

        Now, can you tell me how that is relevant to this question? One, can you tell me where that doctrine comes from, in Islam — and can you tell me that it’s not covered in question #29, or question #27, or any other question?

        Your question is wholly irrelevant without that context.

        Yes…in the dark past, many religions were very violent and twisted…but in today’s world…name one other than islam, that is MANDATED to kill those who disagree with them?
        Also, how many instill allegiance to their belief by threatening to kill any who wishes to leave said religion????

        HMMMMMMMMMMMMM??????

        Show me the mandate.

        For ten points bonus, explain the difference between that mandate and the Christian notion of “blood atonement” as advocated by several U.S. groups. Distinguish that policy from the policy of Rousas Rushdooney, which calls for the slaughter of non-Christians in the U.S. (Of course, you’ll say, Rushdooney wasn’t a “real Christian.” He wasn’t a Scotsman, either — and both of those claims are irrelevant to my having answered your question.)

        Ed, Ed, Ed,….give your head a shake!!!!

        You’re not on my head. If I shake my head, how will that cause you to come to your senses?

        So much of your rant comes loaded with demons you see, that are not there, in Question #28.

        • Historically Socialist/Communist propaganda has been inserted in literature in exactly the same way that the Socialists in the Democratic Party inserted it in the test. But you already know that because it is obvious by your unintelligent misleading responses that you are acting as a propagandist for the Socialists in the Democratic Party in this community.

          When Hamas, Hezbollah, al-Qaeda or the Muslim Brotherhood provides aid to the poor it is like the drug dealing motorcycle gangs in the USA, who were instructed by the Socialists to go into their local hospitals during Christmas and hand out Christmas gifts to make their evil gangs appear to be good. The Muslim Brotherhood humanitarian aid fronts in the USA that the Socialists in the Democratic Party have allowed to form and are protecting are how the Muslim terrorists and their supporters that the Socialists in the Democratic Party are bringing to the USA to build a voter base among send money to their favorite Muslim terrorist organizations around the world who are terrorizing Israel and killing Jews and Christians. The non Muslim secular Humanitarian Aid groups in the USA that have offices abroad are how the Socialists in the Democratic Party send US tax dollars adn raise money to send to their Muslim terrorist warriors who are fighting their proxy war against the State of Israel, Jews and Christians through out the world. In Syria these same Socialist Humanitarian Aid fronts are transporting arms and money to the Muslim terrorists that comprise the Muslim militia that the Socialists in the Democratic Party and their European Socialists in NATO cohorts conspired with the Muslim Brotherhood to form in order to over throw the government in Syria, which has outlawed the Muslim Brotherhood. The funding of Muslim terrorists, disguised as Humanitarian aid is being used to unleash the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization in Syria, in order to increase the threat to Israel, which the Socialists in the Democratic Party and their Muslim Brotherhood cohorts plan to use to cause Israel to capitulate to their demands. This so called humanitarian aid is responsible for increasing the chances of a nuclear war.

          You purposefully propagandize an altered picture of the Crusades. They were just in their failed attempt to oust the Muslims who had conquered the land of Israel. It wasn’t until the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in WWI that the task of ousting Muslim Crusaders from ruling over the land of Israel was successfully conducted.

          The problem with your analysis is that you don’t know the difference between a person who was exposed to Christianity through their upbringing but is not a Christian and a Christian. And judging you from your response you are hell bent on not going down that path of understanding because it will destroy your propagandizing scheme to villianize Christians. The problem today, which you display your are a participant, which has to be eradicated in order to put the world back on path of peace is your evil scheming to cause others to hate Christians, Jews and the state of Israel and to join you in eradicating Christians, Jews and the State of Israel from the face of the earth.
          My statement agrees with Jesus’s prophetic plan to remove all stumbling blocks to Christianity before He ends this age. While you think that you are devising a successful plan to eradicate Christians, Jews and the state of Israel from the face of the earth, what is really taking place is that Jesus is directing your footsteps to fulfill His plan to eradicate your kind from the face of the earth and bring those who can be saved to the point of their salvation. Jesus will cause the Muslims that Cscope is designed to socially engineer secular Americans to accept and support in their war against Israel, Jews and Christians, to join the Antichrist led fourth beast and take your kind out in the USA, while Jesus protects those believers who don’t fall for your lies. Jesus has warned you in advance of His plan to persuade you from continuing with your evil schemes against Christians, Jews and the State of Israel.

    • One more thing, Ed…

      Yes…both our counties allow for “Freedom Of Religion”.

      But that freedom stops when a certain religious belief or group starts to threaten or tries to exert domination over others.

      And THAT is exactly what the muslim’s are attempting, and if you excercised some of that “acedemic rigor” to which you referred , you would KNOW that to be so…shame on you!!!

      Shake you head again!!!

      • Question 28 demonstrates no attempt by Islam to influence U.S. law, or Texas kids. It could shed light on your claim, and explain why your claim is something we should be concerned about.

        But you don’t want to let Texas kids in on the information. Send them out into that world, against agents of subversive Islam (according to you), wholly disarmed with information.

        Have you thought this through? It appears to me you’re on the side of the subversives.

    You don’t know the question about Islam. You haven’t see the question on Christianity, or Hinduism, or Judaism. You ignore 99.99999% of the material, and pass an incorrect judgment on what caught your eye.

    Academic rigor is a good idea. You should try it sometime.

    • You described how propagandists implement propaganda in their literature. A little bit at a time so that it remains unidentified by their intended ignorant targets. This is not the first time this has happened in history. The Socialists are copying the Nazis and Stalin. Anyone that studies history properly should to be able to see this.

      • JDA, for g-d’s sake learn the meaning of the word ‘precis’ and apply it to your comments; it’s one thing to make a point, but you don’t need to write a bloody book.

  7. Are you a muslim? Methinks you might be….!??

    You could Google and figure it out, but I find that Adhominists tend to be Google-challenged.

    What difference would it make? I’m not the one disrespecting the flag here.

    • Ed Darrell is one those that are lying about CScope to as many people as he possibly can.

      • James D. Albright, you need to speak accurately. If you have no answer, you invariably make some bold, false claim about me.

        Have you spoken with your physician about that? Have you consulted with your local library? Either may offer you some help.

        Anyone can check the links I give, or reason through the arguments I make. Because you have no answer, does not make me a liar. You need to do your homework (somehow, I suspect I’m not the first to have said that to you).

        • last desperate TYPICAL move of ALL OBOTICS – when all else is a #FAIL go to ad hominem and ridicule (guess his head is also up Alinsky’s ass)

          • last desperate TYPICAL move of ALL OBOTICS – when all else is a #FAIL go to ad hominem and ridicule (guess his head is also up Alinsky’s ass)

            That’s a cruel and inaccurate way to describe Mr. Albright, who, though being unable to defend his claims or stay on point, is not so much a robot as misled. I doubt he has ever read any Alinsky, nor have you — nor have I for that matter.

            Your crude comments are not arguments that shed any like on CSCOPE.

            Do you have an information, or only invective?

          • very funny ED those comments are for YOU- as for invective:
            sorry all I do have left for men like you after destroying my country and replacing it with Obamanation – I can never for forget nor forgive those who voted for him once, twice and now still defend his OBumblings

        • Your response demonstrates that my claim that you are lying to as many people as you possibly can is true by your practice of deception in which you extract statements that are substantiated with in my posts from my posts and repost them by themselves, followed by you boldly lying that they are not substantiated. On top of this you divulge your ineptitude to carry out your deceptions with statements that I would expect from an uneducated “low life”, such as you asking me whether I have I talked to a physician. Are you one of the educated Socialists that were successfully socially engineered through their propaganda machine to wear tattoos and ride a Harley Davidson motorcycle, which was done to make you appear to Christians like the anti-Christian violent drug dealing sexually promiscuous and perverted motorcycle gang members of the 60s and 70s. I would not visit a Socialist controlled library to check to see if what you tried to get away with lying about has been lied about by any of your fellow anti-Christian/Semitic Socialists in the Democratic Party. It is a terrible thing to waste your mind, deceiving others into accepting and supporting Muslims, who like you, hate Christians, Jews and the State of Israel. You are a threat to Christians, Jews and their property.

    • Ed…

      You cover a lot of ground on here!

      It is a very complex problem, the rise of islam in the world.
      I’m sure you’d agree.

      Have you ever read a koran?
      I have, about 30 years ago when I was on a personal “search” for some definition of “truth”.

      Even then, when islam was a still slumbering giant on the world scene, the book could only be taken as a war manual.
      Approx. 60% of it instructs the believer how to wage violence and deception against the kaffir…and the 40% that preaches “love and forgiveness” is directed ONLY towards fellow muslims.

      The koran, as well as their other books do indeed MANDATE the killing of the unbeliever, if he refuses to convert to islam, or if he can nott be a useful idiot to the islamic regime and pay the “jizya”.

      This fact can not be disputed.

      I have no problem teaching your kids in Texas about islam.
      I do have a problem with teaching them only the parts of islam that promote only half truths.
      They only teach a deceptive and incomplete version, leaving out all the nasty stuff that, as far as I’m concerned , is vile and evil.

      The koran DOES MANDATE the killing of any and all non-believers.

      Politicians are so damned concerned about offending everyone in the name of political correctness, they often run scared about speaking the truth about islam.

      We, especially our children, are being coerced into tolerating and accepting something that is the most intolerant group of people on the earth.
      And the cirriculim is established by groups like CAIR, ISNA, etc…and surely you must be aware of the muslim brotherhoods own doctrine to “destroy the United States from within it’s own miserable house”, or words to that effect…
      AND groups like that DEPEND on the ignorance of most people in the west when it comes to the real agenda of islam, and/or the cowardice of the dhimmie not to have the balls to confront islam head on.

      You are obviously a man with some intellect.
      You can’t deny these things as fact!

      I disagree with you about all the “great scientific accomplishments credited to islam”….but that is for another time.

      Also, islam DOES not mean “peace”, it’s true definition means “submission”. As Casey Stengel says..”Look it up!”

      The term “The Religion Of Peace” was never ever used in reference to islam until George W. Bush used it just after 9/11.
      Look it up!

      One of the best movies ever..top 5 or 10 to be sure, but why the hell didn’t Bogart get on the plane with Bergman at the end?

      NOT IN MY WORLD!!!! LOL

      • The Socialists in the Democratic Party in the public colleges decided to and are outrightly lying about the Muslims contributions to the world as part of their plan to lure them into their conspiracy against Christians, Jews and the state of Israel. The Socialists share a common hatred towards Christians, Jews and the State of Israel with their Muslim cohorts.
        The Koran is a demonic counterfeit that leads people away from their salvation through Jesus.
        Mohammed set the example of forcing non-Muslims to convert or die in Mecca and in Medina, which his successors continue today.
        The edicts are nothing other than a diary of the evil thoughts of their leaders.
        US law requires that the government intervene in a religion if that religion is causing harm to US citizens and their property. Part of the Socialists in the Democratic Party’s plan to bring Muslim terrorists and their supporters to the USA is to include their open and threatening rantings on college campuses and in organized protests in the face of Christians and Jews as part of their anti-Christian agenda. Ed is one of the Socialist propagandists assigned to deceive and thereby hide the truth from as many people as he possible can.

  8. And of course, nothing in those funeral stories reflects any new information, or any information at all, on the CSCOPE follies. The allegations are simultaneously scurrilous and silly. Allegations are the work of people who wish to trip up America, confound our people, clog the courts, and create strife.

    Funny. VFW. A lot of Jews and Catholics served in the past. Why don’t these suits ever involve someone standing up FOR the rights of a Jew, instead of against them?

    • In other words you support the Socialist agenda to censor what Christians can and cannot say through out society. The Socialists in the Democratic Party also censor what can and cannot be said about the Muslim terrorists and their supporters that they bring to the USA to build a voter base among while they socially engineer their future secular voter base through CScope with lies about Muslims that are designed to cause the students to join the Socialists in supporting their Muslim warriors who are fighting their proxy war against Jews, the state of Israel and Christians for them. The Socialist conspiracy to use the Muslims to fight a proxy war against Jews, the state of Israel and Christians is part of the fulfillment of Rev 18:24, which foretold that Babylon the great, which Jesus revealed to me and sent me out to tell His people is the USA, would become responsible for all who are slain on the earth.
      Rev. 18:24 “And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints and of all who have been slain on the earth.”
      How does it feel Ed to be exposed for what you really are, which is one of the members of the Socialist anti-Christian/Semitic killing machine. You are also party to the Socialist conspiracy with the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization to over throw the governments in countries where the Muslim Brotherhood is outlawed in order to unleash the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization in these countries and thereby increase the threat to Israel, which your Socialist cohorts plan to use to cause Israel to capitulate to their demands, which they share with the Muslim terrorists. Ed your Socialist Democratic Party’s agenda is placing weapons of mass destruction in the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood, which is causing an increase in the chances of a nuclear war braking out, because this is causing Israel to have to respond with nuclear weapons in order to successfully defend themselves against these weapons in the event that your Muslim cohorts start another multi-front war with them.

      • In other words you support the Socialist agenda to censor what Christians can and cannot say through out society.

        May I take this post as your concession that you don’t have any support for your claims against CSCOPE’s single question on a test for at topic you not only do not know, but don’t care about?

        Respond to what I wrote, please, and not to anything you fantasize.

        Socialism? I’m complaining of authoritarianism, and specifically I’m defending the Bill of Rights, and its instruction.

        Is that socialism? As Patrick Henry said, “make the most of it, then.”

        Do you know who Patrick Henry was? He’s been pretty much wiped out of the Texas history curricula. CSCOPE tried to fix that.

        The Socialists in the Democratic Party also censor what can and cannot be said about the Muslim terrorists and their supporters that they bring to the USA to build a voter base among while they socially engineer their future secular voter base through CScope with lies about Muslims that are designed to cause the students to join the Socialists in supporting their Muslim warriors who are fighting their proxy war against Jews, the state of Israel and Christians for them.

        Recent history escapes you, too?

        The Democratic Party, which has more Jews as members than the Republicans, is nevertheless a defender of American interests in the Middle East, including keeping good relations where we can (Egypt, a key to peace with Israel), Jordan, Libya, an any other nation where we can make friends rather than enemies.

        Democrats are opposed to censorship, a position that grows out their strong support of the First Amendment. Had you studied in Texas, even under the CSCOPE curricula, you’d know the First Amendment is also the amendment that protects our freedom of belief, and freedom of religious practice.

        When you advocate limiting the First Amendment rights of others, you endorse government action against your own faith.

        Tread more carefully on that ground, will you?

        The Socialist conspiracy to use the Muslims to fight a proxy war against Jews, the state of Israel and Christians is part of the fulfillment of Rev 18:24, which foretold that Babylon the great, which Jesus revealed to me and sent me out to tell His people is the USA, would become responsible for all who are slain on the earth.

        The U.S. is not Babylon. If you start from such a twisted view, you’re bound to end in the wrong place.

        If you think Jesus is talking to you, check with your physician before you tell the rest of us.

        Rev18:24 “And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints and of all who have been slain on the earth.”

        Have you ever read the New Testament? I commend it highly.

        Right now, you could use a run through the Book of Matthew, especially Chapter 7.

        3“Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?4“Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ and behold, the log is in your own eye?5“You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

        Of course, were I to follow the next couple of lines, I’d probably end this discussion with you right away.

        Also, please pay careful attention to verse 15 and its following verses:

        15“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.16“You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?17“So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit.18“A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.19“Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.20“So then, you will know them by their fruits.

        21“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.22“Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’23“And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’

        Many are those who tell me they are prophets from God. Few are those whose track records bear them out in any rational way, nor in any way that demonstrates their faith is so superior to everyone else’s as they claim.

        You’re in that category, Mr. Albright. Your haughtiness suggests you need to watch your step (see Proverbs).

        How does it feel Ed to be exposed for what you really are, which is one of the members of the Socialist anti-Christian/Semitic killing machine. You are also party to the Socialist conspiracy with the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization to over throw the governments in countries where the Muslim Brotherhood is outlawed in order to unleash the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization in these countries and thereby increase the threat to Israel, which your Socialist cohorts plan to use to cause Israel to capitulate to their demands, which they share with the Muslim terrorists. Ed your Socialist Democratic Party’s agenda is placing weapons of mass destruction in the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood, which is causing an increase in the chances of a nuclear war braking out, because this is causing Israel to have to respond with nuclear weapons in order to successfully defend themselves against these weapons in the event that your Muslim cohorts start another multi-front war with them.

        How does it feel to be maligned by a guy who can’t stay on topic?

        Whose who falsely malign me probably falsely malign anyone who disagrees with them about any of their ravings.

        Talk to your physician. See if you can convince him or her.

        I’m not buying your prophecies, nor any of the other babble you spout and spew.

        If you have serious information, and if you wish to discuss, I’m happy to do that — but you have provided me with not one jot nor tittle of useful information, and you’ve managed to convince me you’re divorced from the religion you claim to espouse. (Didn’t see you at services Thursday or Friday — bet you won’t be there tomorrow, either; a bet I’d be happy to lose, incidentally.)

        Islam poses threats to U.S. interests, sometimes. Those threats rarely come from serious Muslims following their faith, but instead from nominal Muslims who follow some false prophet who claims to be talking to Mohammed, or Jesus, or God.

        We might do well to accept that old Muslim saying: “There is no God but God, and Mohammed is His Prophet.” Of course, Mohammed is dead. Mormons claim to have the advantage of restored prophecy, but checking your profile I don’t see any indication that you are Thomas Monson. I’m pretty sure you don’t speak ex cathedra, since Pope Francis isn’t generally active on WordPress blogs.

        In short, I find your account of the facts meager and generally wrong; I find your epithets in place of argument wearying, and counter-convincing if you had intended to persuade me that you don’t need a good dose of history education, even from CSCOPE (even not-perfect information is better than no information, or disinformation); and I find your claims of prophecy to be indicators of pathology, not indicators of theological or historical accuracy.

        Perhaps someone else has real information against CSCOPE; it’s clear, to this humble observer at least, that you don’t know.

        • Should be “Those who falsely malign,” and not “Whose.” Regret the typographical error.

        • As I have repeatedly stated in my posts, Socialist propaganda is inserted in well thought out measures in their literature, in order to avoid being detected by the intended targets. Being the lying propagandist that you have demonstrated in every post that you are you are already aware of this.

          Claiming not to be what you really are is propagandizing. I get a kick out of you continually associating yourself like Obama does with our founding fathers who would have put both of you to death by now for your part in the Socialists scheme to over throw democracy in the USA and replace it with your anti-Christian Socialism. The propaganda machine in the public schools are socially engineering their students to think that Socialism is a better form of Democracy in which the people get to choose their leaders instead of the capitalist businessmen that are choosing the leaders right now.

          As for me I am contributing to a post Socialist Civil War Nulenburg type trial panel that is determined not to let Socialist criminals like you get away with your part in socially engineering children to join your Socialist conspiracy with the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization and it’s affiliate terrorist organizations to wipe out Christians, Jews and the State of Israel from the face of the earth. The panel is collecting data now so that they can keep as many Socialist criminals as possible from escaping justice by determining the guilt level of participants like you, so that the court can prosecute and sentence you accordingly. This panel was set up because many of your Nazi predecessors who participated in the holocaust of the Jews in WWI escaped justice.

          You are lying. The Jews that are part of the scheme has no bearing on the fact that your Socialist comrades in the Democratic Party and your European Socialist cohorts in NATO conspired with the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization to violently over throw Mubarak, Gadaffi, Saleh and the ongoing over throw of Assad and quite possibly Abdullah in the near future in order to unleash the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization in these countries and thereby increase the threat to Israel, which you Socialists are using to force Israel to capitulate to your demands which you share with the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization. Cscope is a Socialist propaganda instrument designed to socially engineer secular American children into joining you Socialists in the Democratic Party in supporting the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization and it’s affiliate terrorist organizations who are fighting your proxy war against Jews, the state of Israel and Christians for you. Your conspiracy with the Muslim terrorists is part of the fulfillment of Rev 18:24, which foretold that Babylon the great, which Jesus revealed to me is the USA, would become responsible for all who are slain on the earth. Your Party to bring Muslim terrorists and their supporters to the USA to build a voter base among them is part of the fulfillment of Rev 18:2, which foretold that Babylon the great would become a prison for every hateful bird, which includes you and your Socialist cohorts and the Muslims you are bringing to the USA. Your Party is socially engineering the anti-Christians that Bible prophecy foretells the Antichrist will lead you on your crusade against Christians, Jews and the State of Israel.
          Your Socialist, redefinition of separation of church and state is one of the ways in which you have already implemented your anti-Christian Socialist government in the USA. Your redefinition of separation of church and state is designed to censor what Christians can and cannot say while they are employed by or attend a tax payer funded institution or hold a public office. This censorship is part of your scheme to control what is being taught in the public schools and colleges, which is part of your long term scheme to establish Atheism as the national religion in the USA, which is your preferred religion.
          It is you who has a twisted view that has caused you to be in the wrong place. I recommend that you start reading what is stated in the Bible. You’re demonic view has rendered you incapable of determining who is and who is not a false prophet. Show me your faith by your works by ceasing to lie about Cscope and the Socialist Democratic Party. Rev 18:4 is a warning to the believers who are participating in the sins that your Socialist Democratic Party is committing against Christians and Jesus, that you will receive their plagues.
          I have taken notice that you didn’t disagree with my observation of your participation in the sins of your Socialist Democratic Party against Christians, Jews and the State of Israel. The fact that you don’t buy the revelations that Jesus has revealed to me is your own testimony against yourself. Believers don’t differentiate between Jesus and God, unbelievers do that. Believers don’t uplift the Islamic demon Allah nor do they call Mohammed anything other than a false prophet. The six pillars of Islam are not how you worship God. You worship God only when you believe in Jesus.
          Your entire outlook on history and current events is worthless because it is based on the Socialist propaganda that you were socially engineered with.
          What I wrote about the Socialists in the Democratic Party is the result of 23 years of researching that included countless interviews and reading newspaper articles written by the Muslims about what the Socialists say to them when they visited their countries.
          You aren’t a humble person at all you are a worthless socially engineered social misfit who because of your social engineering are a threat to Christians, Jews and their property.

  9. Below is the URL for a video that reveals that the Democratic Party removed recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel from their Party platform at the 2012 Democratic Party National Convention, which they share with the Muslim terrorists and their supporters. This video also reveals that when one of party members wanted to reinstate recognition of Jerusalem half of the Socialists, including their Muslim terrorist and supporter cohorts booed.

    Amidst Boos And Multiple Votes, DNC Reverses Position And Reinstates Jerusalem

    • The Democratic Convention made sure Jerusalem was specifically mentioned.

      What was the GOP excuse?

      When does the GOP convention start its long line of changes necessary to reflect U.S., flag-waving patriotism?

      • UH dumbass the GOP never removed it from their platform they have ALWAYS and continue to support Jerusalem as capital of ISRAEL- OBAMA personally removed it for his Muslim jewhater base- when some DEMS freaked they put it back despite voting 3x against it

      • It is obvious that you are lying for your anti-Christian Socialist movement. Why don’t you leave this community, you are a wasting everyone’s time. The Socialists in the Democratic Party are working according to the activities of Satan and in fact are nothing other than the anti-Christians that the Antichrist becomes the leader and leads you on your Satanic crusade against Christians, which is part of the fulfillment Bible prophecy, which Jesus, foretold would take place just before He returns.

  10. check out the blog of this troll- I am sure he is here only to get some hits for his Obammy fan site- his head is so far up Obama butt he can’t see anything but shit- so he asks for you to do more research- (typical lib evasive technique, then if you do present he will say he doesn’t like your sources)

    evidently people here have done research and presented it. He is the one who presents nothing to counter any of it- except some moral equivalence rehash—- “well they are bad too!!” the two wrongs make it all right typical Obotic squawking- so boring already! tiresome and heard this crapola before….ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

    so ED Darrel where are YOUR proofs of what is being taught about other faiths in PUBLIC SCHOOLS- we are not countering what HISTORY of ISLAM is being taught but they are teaching about RELIGION- ISLAM is not even defined by Muslims as one thing or another – each sect has a different idea and none agree! all call each other apostates and ALL OF THEM ARE AT WAR with each other- Sunni Shia Kurds Alawites Azidi Sikh which one is the true ISLAM?

  11. @ED DARRELL- the GOP are the ONLY ones fighting the blasphemy laws approved by Clinton and prescribed by Muslim lover ODummy- Obama: ‘Future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam- please provide source for your BS err I mean accusation on GOP sponsoring blasphemy laws————

    and that is ONLY ONE point of the many many easily debunked crapyou post- way too long to actually bother to read- and full of so much inaccuracy and lies

  12. another example for DUMBASS AKA Darrell who knows no history- so ISLAM and socialism arenot connected??

    prove it

    can find many examples to back my position- reality
    IRAN
    In March 1979 Khomeini – leftists supported the Islamisc Revolution took some Americans hostage – perhaps you forgot

    maybe Arafat and the Russians collusion? they made up the “palestinain problem” to oppose US influence in the Middle East

    never heard of it?

    I suppose your leftard edumacation hasn’t told you that NAZISM is a SOCIALIST LEFTIST ideology-wrongly labeled right by only STALIN –

    Egypt Muslim B and the Mufti closely aligned and fought AXIS with the Ottoman Turks

    I can go on but too much wrong to fix here.. you must be a paid Obot or a union teacher to be so defensive about Cscope indoctrination of children with “progressiveism” aka communism

  13. Democrats have sad history of supporting JIHADISTS for their personal gains- CLINTON could have prevented 9-11 —http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/5798#.UWHPFDe_PyA “FBI was not only taken off Rabbi Kahane’s case, but all Islamic “infiltrating” was halted. President Clinton ordered the CIA, and the CIA then demanded that the FBI cease and desist. The Congress also put the squeeze on the FBI. Why? The true motives are anyone’s guess. However, from 1990 until the 1993 first World Trade Center bombing, these groups were not monitored.

    how stupid can Americans prove to be??
    “Analysis of documents found in the rubble of Iraq’s intelligence headquarters show that contrary to conventional wisdom, Iraqi military and intelligence officials sought out al Qaeda leaders, not the other way around, and ultimately met with bin Laden on at least two occasions. They also show that channels of communication between al Qaeda and Iraq were created much earlier and were wider ranging in scope than previously thought.

This article reveals that Ed’s anti-Christian Atheist Socialists cohorts at Texas A&M have set up a University in Qatar that is being used by the Socialist in the Democratic Party and their Muslim Brotherhood cohorts to socially engineer their college graduates to join the Socialists conspiracy with the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization against Jews, the State of Israel and Christians.

    February 18, 2010
    By: Steven Stalinsky

    “Oh men, the matter is grave. The time for jesting has passed. Call things by their real names, for it is men’s way to be frank. The veil has fallen from the face, and their secret workings are revealed. The Crusaders have returned once more, and they move about in the [Iraqi] lowlands… don’t you see how conspiracies against Islam are hatched openly in the light of the day?… Oh Islamic nation, rise up and act! For there is no time to be lost… Oh thousand million [Muslims], where are you when the wounds call out? Bring one million from the billion, the select of the select. One from every thousand, and with them we shall make war on all fronts…” [1]

    From a poem by Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradawi, January 5, 2005

    Preface

    On February 15, 2010, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton participated in an official Al-Jazeera town hall interview at the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) branch campus in Qatar’s Education City. Secretary Clinton was introduced by Sheikh Abdallah Aal-Thani, whose opening statements on behalf of Education City praised the six American universities based there.

    In response, Secretary Clinton stated, “I have been following the progress of Education City from the U.S., and I am delighted to be able to see with my own eyes the extraordinary commitment of the Qatar Foundation… to this really extraordinary partnership between our two countries.”[2]

    A short walk from the CMU branch at Education City is the Al-Qaradawi Centre for Research in Moderate Thought. It is named after Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradawi, an influential figure on campus who also happens to be barred from entering the U.S., and is documented as having called for the destruction of America and for the annihilation of the Jews.

    The following report sets out in detail the work of the Qatari royal family’s foundation in establishing Education City; Education City’s support of Sheikh Al-Qaradawi; and Education City’s official connections to, and expanding relations with, leading U.S. universities and research centers.

    Introduction

    Last month, students from around the world, and particularly from the U.S., began the winter academic semester as part of study programs at universities across the Middle East. These programs are part of a concerted effort by some leading Arab countries to bring American students to the region – as future leaders in government and media – to understand and, in fact, to be sympathetic to the Arab cause.

    One such program, “Journalism Boot Camp,” which is affiliated with Columbia University, the American University in Cairo, and the University of Qatar, is aimed at top U.S. journalism colleges; under it, students visit Middle East media outlets, including Al-Jazeera, and attend lectures by prominent figures.

    Last year, these lectures included one by Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradawi – who is barred from entering the U.S., the U.K., and other Western countries. This summer, the Boot Camp brought U.S. students together with the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

    Journalism Boot Camp was not the only framework in which U.S. students have met with Sheikh Al-Qaradawi. The Qatari royal family foundation’s Education City – one of its most important initiatives – has emerged as the leading hub of academia in the Middle East, and its mission is to bring top U.S. institutes of higher education to the country. Over the past couple of years, Sheikh Al-Qaradawi has maintained a prominent position there.

    Education City hosts American universities including Carnegie Mellon, Georgetown, Northwestern, Texas A&M, Virginia Commonwealth, and Cornell. On the very same campus, Sheikh Al-Qaradawi’s presence can be felt through the Al-Qaradawi Centre for Research and Modern Thought; the Sheikh Al-Qaradawi Scholarship program; as Chair of Faculty of Islamic studies; and through participation in campus activities such as graduation.

    As it cements, and even enhances, the stature and influence of Sheikh Al-Qaradawi at Education City, the Qatari royal family has been making fervent efforts to expand relations with U.S. universities; these efforts include luring American professors and students, and building lavish new multimillion dollar centers for them on campus.

    It should be noted that at the same time as Sheikh Al-Qaradawi has been receiving honors on a campus shared with leading U.S. universities, he has continued to call for the Muslim world to damage the U.S. economy by boycotting American products, as well as to appear on Arab TV channels, inciting Muslims by calling for Islam’s conquest of Rome, warning the U.S. to change their policies or face “collapse,” and calling for another Holocaust against the Jews, but this time at the hands of the Muslims.

    As Sheikh Al-Qaradawi told his Al-Jazeera audience on January 2009, “Oh Allah, do not spare a single one of them [Jews]. Oh Allah, count their numbers, and kill them, down to the very last one.”[3]

    Background on the Qatar Royal Family’s Official Foundation

    Founded in 1995 by Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Aal-Thani, the Qatar Foundation is currently headed by Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser Al-Missned,[4] the second of the three wives of Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Aal-Thani.

    On its website, the Qatar Foundation says that it is “a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to prepare the people of Qatar and the region to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world.” The website also states that the Foundation is committed to community development, operates in a range of centers for local and regional outreach, and also funds the Doha Debates and, Al-Jazeera’s Children’s Channel.[5]

    It should be noted, throughout the months of October through January the Qatar Foundation has begun an extensive PR campaign on both the Al-Jazeera Arabic and English channels to promote itself, the same commercials have also been airing on CNN as well.

    The Qatar Foundation’s Education City: About the Campus

    The Qatar Foundation is connected to and housed in Education City, a 2,500-acre campus on the outskirts of Doha which hosts branch campuses of some of the world’s leading universities, as well as numerous other educational and research institutions.[6] The Qatar Foundation calls Education City its “flagship project,” and envisions it as a Centre for world-class higher education and cutting-edge research.[7]

    Sheikha Mozah described her original vision for Education City: “We believe in the urgency of meeting other civilizations, but not in melting into them. And we believe in the power of education to guide us toward this goal.”[8]

    The Qatar Foundation has in fact emerged as a leading center of scientific research in the Middle East, and its work on environmental issues is to be commended. Over the past decade, according to its website, the foundation has worked with some of the world’s leading organizations, including the United Nations, the Royal Society of London, the National Human Rights Committee, and the U.S. Council on Foreign Relations. Among the influential individuals who have visited and participated in its activities are former U.S. President Bill Clinton, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, current U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown, leaders of other European nations, ambassadors from throughout the world, and Nobel Prize laureates.

    One notable event, held on March 3, 2009, was a forum UNESCO initiated and took place in the Quranic gardens in Education City. The opening ceremony of the forum included officials such as Qatar’s Minister of Culture and Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradawi, whose statements were quoted extensively by the Qatar media.[9]

    According to the Qatar Foundation website, Education City students include citizens or residents of Qatar as well as those from Gulf countries and other Middle East countries; others come from Western countries, including the U.S. The website calls Education City “a place where bridges are being built between cultures and towards a better future.”[10]

    The main departments and programs of Education City include the Qatar Leadership Academy, which works with the Qatar foundation for Education, Science and Community Development in conjunction with the Qatar Armed Forces;[11] the Qatar Academy, a private, non-profit, educational institution founded in 1996 and fully accredited in the U.S., which offers programs including English, Arabic and Islamic studies;[12] and the Academic Bridge Program, for top graduates of Middle East high schools to prepare them for English-language university programs, which shares space with Texas A&M University.[13]

    The Qatar Foundation has also worked with or been connected to major universities throughout the world, including Oxford University, Cambridge University, Technical University of Vienna, Saarland University, and the University of Calgary, as well as to some of the most respected academic bodies in the U.S.

    U.S. Institutions at Education City

    In February 2008, The New York Times called Education City a “study in contradictions, an island of American-style open debate in what remains an Islamic monarchy, albeit a liberal one by regional standards. Education City graduates will be broadly educated elite, who have had extended contact with American professors and American ways of thinking, and, in some cases, spent time at their school’s home campus back in the United States.”[14]

    However, on July 10, 2009, the Chronicle of Higher Education released a scathing article attacking the academic standards of Education City. It said: “Administrators at several branch campuses of American universities in Qatar acknowledge that they accept students with admissions standards that fall below those expected on their home campuses…”[15]

    Education City – Doha, Qatar[16]

    The following U.S. universities have campuses at Education City:

    Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, PA) opened its branch in Doha at the invitation of the QataFoundation in 2004. Carnegie Mellon Qatar offers undergraduate programs in Business Administration, Computer Science, and Information Systems.[17] On April 10, 2009 Carnegie Mellon University’s campus at Qatar University formally opened its new 460,000 square foot building, which was paid for by the Qatar Foundation.[18]

    Northwestern University (Evanston, IL) partners with the Qatar Foundation in providing degrees in communication and journalism, since August 17, 2008.[19] In March 2009, a group of Northwestern faculty and students traveled to Northwestern University’s branch in Education City, as guests of the Qatar Foundation which paid for the trip in full. According to Northwestern’s official newspaper, all students who applied for the trip were accepted.[20]

    Texas A&M University (College Station, TX) was established in 2003 and offers degrees in chemical, electrical, mechanical, and petroleum engineering.[21] In an article in Texas A&M’s newspaper on April 24, 2009, the University’s assistant dean for Finance and Administration stated, “Essentially, all costs of A&M [at Education City] are covered by the Qatar Foundation.” The article also stated that staff, including “professors are given significant financial and U.S. taxation incentives for working at A&M Qatar.”[22]

    Georgetown University (Washington, D.C.) opened a branch campus at Education City in 2005, where it offers a four-year program leading to a bachelor’s degree in Foreign Service.[23] Some of the more notable lecturers featured at the campus include Professors Tariq Ramadan, John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt (authors of “The Israel Lobby”), and Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish.[24]

    Virginia Commonwealth University (Richmond, VA) was the first U.S. University at Education City, established in 1998. It offers a four-year Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in communication design, fashion design or interior design.[25]

    Cornell Medical College (New York, NY) was established under a 2001 agreement between Cornell University and the Qatar Foundation.[26]

    RAND Corporation’s Education City branch,[27] at the RAND-Qatar Policy Institute, states on its website that it “analyzes complex policy problems and helps implement enduring solutions for clients across the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia.”[28] The agreement to set up RAND-Qatar Policy Institute was signed in April 2003.[29]

    Qatar Foundation Outreach Effort Includes Millions of American Students

    In addition to the six branch campuses of American Universities at Education City, the Qatar Royal Family seeks to connect with other American universities and students through multiple special programs and symposiums. One recent example involved students from University of Maryland and San Diego coming to Education City on January 20, 2010 for a two-day discussion, at the Young Professionals Institute at the Qatar Foundation.[30]

    American Association of Community Colleges, Representing Over 11 Million U.S. Students, Coming to Education City

    On November 24, 2008 the Community College Qatar Project was announced. According to an article in the Qatari daily Gulf Times, the American Association of Community Colleges, which represents almost 1,200 U.S. degree intuitions with a total enrollment of over 11 million students in the U.S., was “in direct talks” to bring programs to Education City.[31]

    U.S., Canadian, British, French, Mexican and Other Institutions Are Partners of the Qatar Foundation

    According to the Qatar Foundation’s 2007-2008 annual report, their official research partners, in addition to those already reported in this document, include the James Baker Institute for Science Policy, Michigan State University, Microsoft, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Michigan, Cisco, Conoco Phillips, European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company (EADS), Exxon Mobil, Gartner Lee (Canada), Imperial College London, Institut de Soudure (France), Instituto Technologico de Celaya (Mexico), University of Burgos (Spain), McGill University (Canada), Rolls-Royce, University of Victoria (Canada), and York University in Toronto, and many more.

    U.S. Scholarships for Education City

    U.S. citizens at U.S. universities in Education City are eligible for FAFSA (federal student aid) through the U.S. Department of Education.[32] Also, according to the websites of the above universities at Education City, the Qatar Foundation provides prospective students with scholarships. [33]

    2010 Begins with Development of Official Ties between Education City and Iranian Government

    Speaking in Qatar on January 7, 2010, Iranian Ambassador to Qatar Abdullah Sohrabi announced at his embassy that a joint committee had been formed to develop “education ties” between Qatar’s Education City and Iranian universities.[34]

    Sheikh Al-Qaradawi and His Announcement of the Establishment of the Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies at Education City – Advisory Committee Includes Member of U.S. Institute of Peace

    Sheikh Al-Qaradawi is one of the most prominent clerics of Sunni Islam and spiritual guide for many Islamist organizations around the world, as well as for millions of Muslims in the West. He heads the European Council for Fatwa and Research, as well as the International Council of Muslim Scholars (ICMS).[35]

    In the July/August 2008 edition of Foreign Policy magazine, readers voted for the Top 100 intellectuals worldwide. Number three on the list was Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradawi: “The host of the popular Sharia and Life TV program on Al Jazeera, Qaradawi issues weekly fatwas on everything from whether Islam forbids all consumption of alcohol (no) to whether fighting U.S. troops in Iraq is a legitimate form of resistance (yes). Considered the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Qaradawi condemned the September 11 attacks, but his pronouncements since, like his justification of suicide attacks, ensure his divisive reputation.”[36]

    On April 15, 2007, at a press conference at Qatar Foundation headquarters led by Sheikh Al-Qaradawi, the establishment of the Faculty of Islamic Studies at Education City was announced.

    The faculty’s structure was to be created by an advisory committee, chaired by Al-Qaradawi and including U.S. Institute of Peace member Professor Sherman Jackson,[37] Dr. Mohamed Fathy Saoud,[38] Dr. Ezzedin Ibrahim,[39] Professor Abdelhafez Helmy Mohamed,[40] Dr. Mohamed Haytham Al-Khayat,[41] Dr. Aisha Al-Mannai[42] and Dr. T.J. Winter.[43]

    Also at the press conference, the Gulf Times hailed the Islamic Studies program as a “new milestone for Education City” and the faculty’s appointed dean, Dr. Al-Qaranshawi, stated that the department would seek to establish a dialogue between Muslims and non-Muslims, based on moderate Islam.

    According to Qatar’s leading English-language daily newspaper The Peninsula, Al-Qaradawi added, “The faculty will represent a moderate view of Islam but will not support modernizing the religion by rejecting its fundamentals… Extremist tendencies among Muslim communities across the world result from ignorance about Islamic principles or the wrong interpretation of them.”[44]

    The Peninsula also quoted Sheikh Al-Qaradawi as saying that the faculty’s mission was “to produce a team of Islamic scholars who are well-versed in Islamic fundamentals as well as [in] contemporary topics, and are capable of facing the challenges of modern time.”[45]

    Oxford University’s Agreement with the Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies

    The Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies at Education City made headlines on November 5, 2008 when the Qatar Foundation announced a new chair of contemporary Islamic Studies. According to an interview with Oxford University Vice-Chancellor Dr. John Hood, “the establishment of the new chair in contemporary Islamic studies opens an exciting new era of exchange and cooperation between Oxford and the Middle East, through the Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies. Given the importance of Islam today, both in European society and in world affairs generally, there could be no subject of greater importance for Oxford’s Middle East studies community to address…”

    The announcement of the endowment coincided with a visit to the Qatar Foundation’s Education City campus by British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who has congratulated the Qatar Foundation and Oxford University.[46]

    2008 Commencement at Education City: Announcement of the Establishment of the Al-Qaradawi Centre for Research in Moderate Thought

    In 2008, a total of 122 students graduated from the Education City branches of Cornell Medical College and of Carnegie Mellon, Texas A&M, Georgetown, Northwestern, and Virginia Commonwealth universities.[47]

    During the May 6 commencement ceremony, which was attended by Sheikh Al-Qaradawi, Education City Faculty of Islamic Studies dean Dr. Hatem Al-Qaranshawi announced the establishment of the Al-Qaradawi Centre for Research in Moderate Thought.

    Al-Qaranshawi stated that the establishment of the new Centre “would be followed by other centers that will work on other areas of research, such as the study of Contemporary Muslim Societies, Islamic Urban Planning and Architecture, Islamic Governance, Islamic Financial Product, and Environmental Issues.”[48]

    Al-Qaradawi added that the vision of the Al-Qaradawi Centre for Research in Moderate Thought “is to become a focus of thought and dialogue that leads to research and debate.”[49] The commencement ended with a performance from Italian opera singer Andre Bocelli.

    According to the Gulf Times of January 14, 2009, the Qaradawi Centre “will serve as a think tank on wide range of issues concerning Islamic Studies and will highlight the middle path propagated by Qaradawi.”

    2009/10 Academic Year: Announcing the Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradawi Scholarship

    In February 24, 2009, the Qatar Foundation put out a press release announcing the “Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradawi Scholarships for 2009/2010.” Five scholarships were made available for successful applicants to the Master of Arts in Islamic Studies with a specialization in Contemporary Fiqh.[50]

    The Al-Qaradawi Centre: Part of the Long-Established Relationship Between Al-Qaradawi and the Qatari Royal Family

    Sheikh Al-Qaradawi, originally from Egypt, has resided in Qatar since 1961, when he faced arrest in Egypt by authorities who were taking action against the Muslim Brotherhood. Since then, his stature has increased. The Emir of Qatar granted him a prime-time slot on the Qatari government’s Al-Jazeera TV. He also delivers official government-sponsored Friday sermons in Qatar, some including incitement against the U.S., the West, and non-Muslims.

    For example, in the supplication part of a sermon on November 1, 2002, he said: “Allah, bring us the victory over your enemies, the enemies of Islam… Allah, remove their trap from us, weaken them, eradicate their countries… Allah, deal with the aggressive Americans. Allah, deal with the extremist pagans. Allah, deal with the oppressing Crusaders.”[51]

    On November 3, 2009, Qatar’s Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage announced it is awarding Sheikh Al-Qaradawi with the State Merit Prize for Islamic Studies – 250,000 Qatari riyals, which is the equivalent of $68,681.33.[52]

    At the inaugural meeting of the Al-Qaradawi Students Forum on February 11, 2010, in Qatar, Sheikh Qaradawi stated, “Qatar has been my home since 1961. I am deeply indebted to HH the Emir and the people of Qatar for having accepted me and allowed me to do my work on an international scale. I have never faced any obstacle in expressing freely whatever I wished. If I had remained in Egypt I would have been in prison forever, as has happened with my colleagues.”

    He also said that some time ago, a BBC correspondent had quizzed him on whether he was free to express objections to anything happening in Qatar, and that he had replied that he objected to many things – including the opening of Israel’s commercial representative office, the presence of the U.S. military base, and aspects of Qatar’s constitution, but had never been arrested. He also referred to a Friday sermon he gave at the Omar bin Khattab mosque in Doha soon after Shimon Peres’s 1996 visit to Qatar, in which he had said: “Whoever shook hands with Peres should wash his hands seven times, including once with sand.” He continued, “I went to greet HH the Emir on Eid-al-Adha day a few weeks later. His Highness greeted me with a warm embrace and said that he had washed his hands 14 times, because he had shook hands with Peres two times!” [53]

    Sheikh Al-Qaradawi elaborated on his gratitude to Qatar and its leadership: “If it hadn’t been for the Emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa, Allah preserve him, I would have been on the list of terrorists. The Americans were determined to put me on this list, but the Emir stood fast courageously, pitting his determination against theirs, [and as a result] I stayed off the list.”[54]

    The Al-Qaradawi Centre: A Think Tank on Education City’s Campus for Da’wa and for Spreading Islam to Western Students

    During September 2009 the Al-Qaradawi Centre for Islamic Moderation and Renewal at Educational City began operations. Dr. Hassan Khalifa, a former professor of Comparative Religion at Cairo University and visiting professor at the Faculty of Islamic Studies-Qatar Foundation, was named director of the Centre.

    It was also announced that another mission of the Centre would be to create a library comprising Sheikh Al-Qaradawi’s works as well as articles about him. According to media reports, the Centre will also train preachers and imams, as well as translate books on Islam to reach out to Western readers. Last September, the Centre released two books by Sheikh Al-Qaradawi, titled “Jurisprudence of Jihad” and “Characteristics of Moderation.”[55]

    At the Centre’s inauguration ceremony, Al-Qaradawi explained that its aim was to reinforce the idea of the middle path, which expresses religious moderation and is distant from the spirit of extremism prevailing in many mosques in Islamic societies. He said that the Centre would serve as a bridge between the Islamic world and the West and East, by means of cultural and ideological activity.[56]

    According to Sheikh Al-Qaradawi’s website, the Al-Qaradawi Centre will serve as a think-tank and offer advice on issues important to the Islamic nation. Sheikh Al-Qaradawi was also quoted during the inauguration as praising Qatar for its leadership narrowing the gap between the Muslim world and the West, and for its free media.[57]

    Sheikh Al-Qaradawi also took the opportunity to state that the Centre will help teach non-Muslims the truth about Islam, in addition to disseminating a proper understanding of Islam and its values.

    Sheikh Al-Qaradawi Banned in the West

    Sheikh Al-Qaradawi has been barred from entering the U.S. since 1999, and in early February 2008 it was announced that he was barred from entering the U.K.[58] In a September 29, 2008 interview, Al-Qaradawi told the Saudi daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat that he was now banned “in many European countries.” MEMRI research on Al-Qaradawi was instrumental in the London ban, and has also been used by the media and by government bodies in the U.S. and throughout Europe for multiple purposes.[59]

    Following past controversies, such as his call for the Islamic conquest of Rome,[60] this past spring Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradawi made more negative headlines in Europe.

    In response to MEMRI TV’s release of a translated and subtitled clip capturing Al-Qaradawi on Al-Jazeera TV in January of 2009 calling the Holocaust “divine punishment” for the Jews and warning that “Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of believers [i.e. Muslims],[61] and stating that he would “shoot Allah’s enemies, the Jews,”[62] Muslim Imams and Islamic groups in Scandinavia and other European cities distanced themselves from him.[63]

    Sheikh Al-Qaradawi Lectures to American Students

    In addition to participating in the American universities’ commencement ceremony at Education City, Gulf papers reported that last summer Sheikh Al-Qaradawi lectured to students from the U.S. under the auspices of the Middle East Journalism Boot Camp.

    The Middle East Journalism Boot Camp program offers “a first-hand, in-depth understanding of the modern Arab world, Islam, and American policy in the region.” According to its website, the program “brings together 12 American journalism students – one each from the top U.S. journalism schools – with 12 of their counterparts from The American University in Cairo and Qatar University.”

    The aim of the program is for the American students participating to “become the next generation of Middle East correspondents for Western news organizations and U.S./Europe-based correspondents for the Arab media.”[64]

    International Affairs Program and Qatar University coordinator Jinnyn Jacob said of the Boot Camp program: “They [the participants] are here for 11 days to refine their skills in the Middle East. Qatar University is hosting them to see Al-Jazeera, and to be able to compare and contrast the Middle East.”

    A June 16, 2008 report in The Peninsula stated that in a lecture to the American program participants, Al-Qaradawi discussed the moral crises that the West had caused in the Arab world. The lecture was part of a presentation titled “Perspectives on Islam in Arab Society.”[65]

    Boot camp participant Lisa Munger, who attended the lecture, reported on it, quoting Al-Qaradawi as saying that “a lack of values and churchgoing, materialism, discrimination and homosexuality disgrace the West and denigrate its position in global politics.”[66]

    Ms. Munger added that Al-Qaradawi maintained that the opposite was true in the Arab world. She wrote: “‘The Arab world has a scarcity of moral crises,’ Qaradawi said through a translator to a group of about 50 attendees, including bootcampers.’ Religious and spiritual values don’t exist in the West as they do here.'” [67]

    This past summer, U.S. students met with leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood.[68]

    An American Student Blogs about Al-Qaradawi’s Lecture: “I Understand How Americans Might Be Frightened By His Rhetoric… My Suspicion is that Al-Qaradawi’s Remarks… Would Confirm Some Nebraskan’s Stereotypes About a Muslim Cleric Disallowed From Entering the U.S…”

    The following are further excerpts from Lisa Munger’s blog on Al-Qaradawi’s “Perspectives on Islam in Arab Society” lecture in the summer of 2008:

    “I traveled to Qatar and Egypt for Bootcamp from Lincoln, Neb., where I attend graduate school in my home state. Nebraska is what some people call a “drive-through state,” meaning just that – you drive through it on your way to somewhere else – no one ever really stops. It’s also a conservative state that re-elected George W. Bush in 2004 by 70 percent. Cows outnumber people 4 to 1.

    “Nebraska was on my mind today at Qaradawi’s lecture. How would people at home have responded to his remarks and gesticulations? How would I have written a story about his lecture in my capacity as a reporter for my local newspaper, to add proper context and foster understanding?”

    “Qaradawi’s response to my question about the Arab world and the West, as described in the post above, left me cold. Though I may not agree, I understand how Americans might be frightened by his rhetoric, especially after the national trauma of 9/11. My suspicion is Qaradawi’s remarks today, and response to my question, would confirm some Nebraskans’ stereotypes about a Muslim cleric disallowed from entering the U.S. This isn’t because Nebraskans, or Americans in general, are ‘backwards,’ (as Qaradawi said some people label Arabs) – it’s because in a super-fast world of 24-hour news, lessening space on international news pages, and fewer staff reporters abroad, the nuance which once might have provided a context for understanding Qaradawi and his comments might be more likely today to produce a headline like: ‘Terrorist-Sympathizer Addresses Students.’

    “I left the lecture more pessimistic than ever about the chances for achieving greater understanding between the Arab world and the West. I told my Egyptian Bootcamp reporting partner how I felt.”

    “She said, not everyone is like this man… I know, I said. But, where I am from, this man, his vitriol and sweeping generalizations of the West would not only anger people, it would frighten them.”[69]

    Media Reports on Al-Qaradawi’s Lectures to American Students

    A June 18, 2008 article in The Peninsula also discussed Al-Qaradawi’s lectures[70] to American students. Al-Qaradawi was quoted as stating, “When we fly airplanes, they [the Americans] already have created rockets,” and that he was “against American politics, but I am not against the American society. We can benefit from the American society’s educational systems, technologies, organization and more.”[71]

    On June 24, 2008 The Peninsula quoted another American student who attended Al-Qaradawi’s lecture, Dave Botti stating, “As we continue this program past our second week, I’ve begun to recognize that perhaps the greatest lesson we’re all learning here is that of perspectives. Coming to the Middle East, I thought I’d had at least a decent understanding of how people from the region viewed themselves and the United States – but this understanding was far too simplified.”

  19. Some of us are not as inclined to see the alliance of Socialists and ISLAM in such religious frame- nevertheless itis still a fact- and so far Darrell has nothing to disprove it except ad hominems and the ever ready lib troll comeback- “don’t like your sources”

    So for the rest of us who prefer to look at actual history and facts a very excellent source proving Albright is right and Dareel is quite wrong err I mean left

    FYI Robert Redford a disciple of New Leftism is using movies as one more indoctrination tool to revise history and influence our youth- his film on the SDS/Weathermen glorifies domestic terrorists – who are Obama’s friends of course- Obama and Ayers worked on an educational program designed to SELL Americans this propaganda.
