Of all the things to worry about, this is the least of my worries because it will never happen. There are too many laws in place, and every year the percentage of Christians in the U.S. decreases.

I actually agree with this even though is an older generation's belief. The older people at my church used to say this was the reason why society keeps getting worse as time goes by, that people are turning away from God and the values in the Bible.

But the fundamentalists are becoming more and more extreme and totalitarian and right now, they are winning.

This is the book my daughter's school used that I have pictures of. Many parents were livid over it (and I live in a very blue state).

Based off of this curriculum, there should be concern. If they are going to teach some of the basics of Islam, they need to do all the other religions also.

I think the reason you might have the perception that they are winning is because of Trump and Fox News. (That is just my opinion, of course.)

The extreme left has proven that if a group is vocal enough, people might think they are "mightier" than they actually are -- this is also my opinion, of course.

Neighbors, no one loves you like he loves you,
And no one cares like he cares.
Neighbors, let us join today in the holy love of God and money,
Because neighbors, no one loves you like He loves you.
And what better way to show your love than to dig deep into your pockets.
Dig real deep, until it hurts. Alleviate your guilt,
Free yourself once again, because he gave to you, brothers and sisters.
Please give a ten, twenty five, or fifty dollar tax-deductible donation,
And I assure you your modest pledge will be used to censor TV and radio,
Ban questionable books, and contribute to many other Godly services.
No longer will young Christian Americans hedonistically indulge
In masochistic submission to rhythmic music, for with your monetary support,
There is no end to what we can achieve in this country.
The voice of God is government.

I just read through the book, and I don't see any problem. It's history. What exactly were you livid about?

Where did I say I was livid? I said "many parents were livid". I was concerned (actually addressed it with the school's principal). Teaching kids about Muhammad being a prophet and those who convert to the Islam religion and not teaching about other religions where archaeological dig has proven some events in the Bible to be true. Is not ok.
