Tennessee: 7th graders made to write “Allah is the only God,” learn Islam

Maury County Director of Schools Chris Marczak has asked parents concerned about a seventh grade social studies class on the history of Islam to discuss their questions in a Sept. 17 meeting with district teachers and administrators.

“If we are truly going to Grow Maury County together, then we need to openly talk and discuss about what we want to emphasize in our county,” Marczak said in a noon Thursday statement to district parents.

I encourage you to talk with your children, talk with your teachers, and talk with your principals. We are here to help your children be prepared for Life.”

The issue arose over new state-mandated standards on middle school social studies about early American history. The standards were developed two years ago and implemented in the 2014-2015 school year.

A Spring Hill Middle School parent complained after seeing a school project her daughter had created featuring the Shahada, or Five Pillars of Faith in Islam: prayer, almsgiving, fasting, pilgrimage and creed.

The creed pillar is known in Arabic as “Shahada,” and in transcribing it students were instructed to write, “Allah is the only God,” said parent Brandee Porterfield.

“These [papers] belong to my daughter in seventh grade at Spring Hill Middle. They have studied Islam for three weeks, but skipped the whole chapter on Christianity because it’s not in the state standards.”

Porterfield said her daughter’s teacher “was not happy about it,” but told the parent she must teach to the standards.

“She said this will be on TCAPs. Both her teacher and Principal Shanda Sparrow said students would not have to write the Shahada again.

“The teacher approached my daughter before class and was very understanding. My daughter told her she would not recite or write the Shahada or anything saying ‘Allah is the only God.’ The teacher said she wouldn’t have to.”

During class time on Tuesday, Porterfield said the teacher verbally asked students about the five pillars, “And the students were reciting the Shahada.”


The 6th pillar of Islam is JIHAD – fighting against non-believers.

Marczak said Thursday the section covers early American History, world history early civilizations to the Roman Empire, Middle Ages through exploration of the Americas, and colonization to reconstruction of the Americas.

“Our teachers work together to make sure that our students are learning what is expected through the Tennessee academic standards. For this last section on the Islamic World this past week, our educators had students complete an assignment that had an emphasis on Islamic Faith. The assignment covered some sensitive topics that are of importance to Islamic religion and caused some confusion around whether we are asking students to believe in or simply understand the religion.

“It is our job as a public school system to educate our students on world history in order to be ready to compete in a global society, not to endorse one religion over another or indoctrinate.”

Marczak said he has discussed the parental reaction with Maury County Commissioner Donna Cook and District 64 State Rep. Sheila Butt about the state standards for the curriculum.

Cook said she has asked the matter be placed on the Board of Education’s Sept. 10 meeting so citizens can relate their concerns.

Marczak said the Tennessee State Standards on World History in 7th grade require students be taught “historical facts and our students are required to write as part of learning (being able to cite evidence from text). Teachers don’t encourage belief in any certain religion over another. We have students of all faiths in our classrooms and all students cover each world religion.”

“My child was required to write ‘Allah is the only God’,” parent Joy Ellis said. “This is a seventh grade state standard, and will be on the TCAP. Christianity was completely skipped and is not a standard. I didn’t have a problem with the history of Islam being taught, but to go so far as to make my child write the Shahada, is unacceptable.”

Marczak said the teachers were covering world history facts of Europe, Southwest Asia, Africa and Asia in the areas of geography, government, culture, economics and religion” and suggested that parents discuss the matter with teachers at scheduled Sept. 17 parent-teacher conferences.

However, Maury resident Bob Crigger said Marczak’s remarks “skirt the real issue” and “shows a callous attitude.

“It did not address the main concern of the parents,” Crigger said. “The parents’ concern is not ‘social studies-world history content related to Southwest Asia culture and religion.’ They are concerned that their children are being taught Islam in the classroom.

“The MCPS refused to utter the word ‘Islam,’ which means they ignored the concerns of the parents, and it shows a callous attitude toward the parents. Not only did they skirt the real issue, but they told the parents to go to the principals of the various schools if they have any further questions.”

Crigger said pointing parents to their children’s principals is part of “a political shell game.”

“Principals are not the policymakers in the MCPS. They execute the polices set forth by the school board and director of schools. It is the school board and the director of schools who make the policies. In fact, they are the ones who have the authority and power to settle the issue of Islam being taught in the MCPS. All they have to do is delete the curriculum from the classrooms.

“Instead of being responsible and solving the concerns of the parents regarding Islam, the school board and the new director of schools is passing on their responsibility to principals. We are not going to put up with this political shell game. The government’s first priority is to protect its citizens. These are our children and we want them protected.”

Crigger has asked MCPS for a town hall meeting with the school board and director of schools.

“We want a large venue with open mics on the floor, and proper time for each parent and resident to speak. This way they can know the exact concern we have, instead of hiding our concerns with the politically correct statement they made.”

  1. This is an outrage! Should the Administer wish to teach the history of Islam, then teach the truth. The truth is found in the millions of dead found throughout history as Muhammad’s followers spread Islam throughout the world. We are witnessing genocide today by Islamist who are murdering Christians in the Middle East and Africa. Teach that!

    • The organizations that rewrite the history and other books used in schools have been infiltrated by Muslims and those who sympathize with and are often paid off by Muslims. They have infiltrated local, city and state politics too.

      In Tennessee, Bill Haslam even hired a Muslim expert in sharia finance – why?

      See posts:

  2. This is NOT a course in history. It’s a course in subversive education. To ban christianity and celebrate islam is genocidal indoctrination. TAKE YOUR KIDS OUT OF THIS SCHOOL and protest, loud, long and often. DO SOMETHING about it, dam it!

  3. so does this violate separation of church and state even though islam is not a church, just a barbaric, vicious cult founded by a horny old man who was a pedophile; i’m sure they don’t mention fgm, child brides, rape, stoning, burning, crucifixion; that might taint their vision somewhat!!

  4. Teach the school children about Islam -about its unspeakable horrors.Compare it to the true religions of Judaism and Christianity. Let these children hear from Buddhists and Hindus whose ancestors were also slaughtered w/ out mercy. Teach them about the true Islam a violent political system masquerading as a religion. Babylonian worship of sun, stars and moon is what it is. Do you want your children indoctrinated in this? If I had a school aged child now, I’d be looking for a private or parochial school! I know every can’t afford it, but please let your school system know that this type of teaching about Islam is unneccessary and evil!

  5. This is a complete misinterpretation. In Islam there is no place for cruelity injustice or jihad or whatever you call it. Just do not comment on someones Religion without knowing it.

  6. They can do only teach what the parents allow them to teach THEIR CHILDREN. So, the parents are to blame as much as the school. When parent decide “TO BE FULL TIME PARENTS” of their children, this crap will stop. Until then, the state will more than gladly take over raising these children. That’s the problem and the answer to the problem, in a very short sentence.

  7. Will they Also teach children that “Islam” is the only Modern Religion that has actively glorified, justified, and promoted SLAVERY for almost 700 years? I also fail to understand how ANY African-American can support the religion of the Slavers who sold their ancestors to the he slave ships coming to America. Are they willfully stupid, or just incredibly misled by propagandizing Mullahs??

  8. The two sentences spoken together (I don’t know about written together) constitute a permanent conversion to Islam. This conversion is irreversible. Leaving the faith is punishable by death.

  9. It never ceases to amaze me that despite the fact that muslims deny the existence of the Holy Trinity, that all the same, mohammed uses the PLURAL forms “We”, “Us”, and “Our” in the koran (intentionally lower-case)when he supposedly makes direct quotes of the words of allah! I challenge any muslim to answer me why, beginning with koran 2.23 and on and on and on, ad infinitum, ad nauseam, in numerous passages following, mohammed quotes allah by saying, “We” did such and such…, or “Our” word says such and such… DUH! So I guess allah (intentionally lower-case) forgot who he really is…. DUH!!!!! WHAT THE HEL.?    

  10. Islam – The Crimes of Prophet Mohammed

    Muslims are sanctified by the blood of murdered kafirs. If the prophet of Islam, Mohammed, was alive today he would be sitting on death row somewhere waiting for his execution.

    What is important to understand is that none of these depraved and criminal acts are seen as crimes to Muslims, except if they are committed by someone else. They are all holy, divine acts that their own prophet indulged in and therefore they have been given the stamp of validation as the moral code to be emulated by all Muslim men. They are all Sunna [The traditional portion of Muslim law based on Muhammad’s words or acts, accepted (together with the Koran) as authoritative by Muslims].
    •Molested his wife – six-year-old Baby Aisha. One of Baby Aisha’s wifely duties was to clean semen stains from the prophet’s clothes. The prophet would take a bath with Baby Aisha and ‘thigh’ with Baby Aisha, meaning she was too small to be penetrated so he would take his penis and rub it up and down her thighs and against her vagina. Being a man of ‘mercy’ he did not penetrate Baby Aisha until she was nine.
    •Raped Baby Aisha when she was nine (texts have altered her age when Muslims could not explain why their prophet married and consummated the marriage with a small child. Koranic texts makes it clear that Mohammed married her when she was six years old. For a marriage to be legally deemed valid it had to be sexually consummated. The Hadith clearly proves that Mohammed was a notorious pedophile). Advocated sex with baby girls.
    •Raped a retarded woman. Murdered a woman. Had sex with his dead aunt.
    •Captured women and raped them. Kept women as sex slaves. Muhammad had sex with 61 women: many he raped. There is no consensual sex between a child girl and a man. There is no consensual sex between a master and his sex slave. There is no consensual sex between a woman conquered in war and her husband conqueror. All such sexual acts are rape. RAPE IS RAPE.
    •Had eleven wives at one time. Sexually abused his wives. Raped his wives. Forced sex during their menstruation including Baby Aisha. Mentally abused his wives. Can you imagine taking a child (or any aged woman) and molesting with your hand/fist her menstruating vagina?
    •Beheaded his enemies. 600/900 Jewish men at one massacre. Had Jewish boys as young as 13 years old beheaded after pulling down their pants and inspecting groin for pubic hair.
    •Ordered the murder, torture, terrorization of Christians and Jews if they did not convert to Islam. Forced Christians and Jews from Saudi Arabia (the mass exile).
    •Assassinated people for insulting him or Islam. Established totalitarian rule. Had followers and their families burnt alive in their homes for missing prayer.
    •Ordered the extermination, torture and terrorization of kafirs. Instigated 60 massacres and personally participated in 27 of them.
    •Owned and sold slaves. Enslaved women and children.
    •Called his black slaves pug noses and compared them to Satan.
    •Treated his black slaves as beasts of burden.
    •Lied and cheated. Mohammed encouraged his men to lie to deceive someone in order to get what he wanted.
    •Caused division and hatred. Ordered no befriending with Christians and Jews.
    •Subjugated and oppressed Muslim women. Required them to cover their faces.
    •Married his daughter–in–law.
    •Approved prostitution.
    •Encouraged the rape of women in front of their husbands.
    •Recommended wife beating. Hit his wife – Baby Aisha.
    •Murdered prisoners of war. Committed acts of terror.
    •Advocated suicide attacks.
    •Executed apostates and homosexuals.
    •Beat children who didn’t pray. Abolished adoption.
    •Honor killings of Muslim women and children.
    •Beat alcoholics. Lied.
    •Stoned adulators to death. Stoned a woman to death after she had given birth.
    •Ordered thief’s hands/feet chopped off.
    •Tortured a man out of greed.
    •Looted and plundered.
    •Preached hate for people of other religions.
    •Extorted money from other religions
    •Forced conversions to Islam
    •Allowed his companions to execute, behead, rape and enslave.

    — Al Tabari reported in his (‘The History of al-Tabari: The Victory of Islam’, Translated by Michael Fishbein) that even some of Muhammad’s wives and companions were shocked that he forced Safiyyah to marry him after beheading her husband, brother and father.

  11. Parents – Withhold school taxes in protest. This needs to be a mass protest to remind the school board and the government whose children they are. They are not the states. They are not the schools. They are not the school boards. They are your children and you have a right for them not to be indoctrinated or converted to Islam. Pass this message to everyone in Maury, TN. School taxes are due at the end of October. Make the school board aware that they will be a mass tax withholding to protest the indoctrination of your children.

  12. My colleagues wanted NARA NA 14129 earlier this week and were informed about a company that has a searchable forms database . If others require NARA NA 14129 too , here’s https://goo.gl/EdXrpK.

  13. This is nothing new in Tennessee. I taught for 3 years in the state from 2007 – 2010. Even before then this was creeping in during my college years student teaching. Hell it was a god dang party the day obama was elected and my principal dr. David Martin proclaimed how great a day it was that we finally had a black president. 2 days later I told them to go fuck themselves when he returned a rapist student to my room after he was caught in the stairwell fondling a girl against her wishes. Probably to cover up his failing policies in a failing school supported by failing people. Haven’t looked back since and couldn’t be happier that I’m not a part of their pussy politics. Hey Dave thanks for teaching the 7 students that failed the appropriate lesson by changing their grades to passing. I’m sure they’re all fine citizens now livingat the president’s motel just like their drunk and drugged parents. You were the best.

If sharia keeps spreading, you will not only be silenced by the media and big technology, you will be jailed - or worse. Speak while you can!
