Oh, I remember "Harold" from Catholic School in NYC. We even had our own version of the Lord's Prayer. "Father, Mother, Son, Holy Ghost, Amen".

Kids will be kids wherever they are from.

Odds are your right but there are things that did happen in our country that should of never of happened. It’s best to know the signs and do something about it then ignore them.

Some people do, why should they have to ask permission?

and before you start, there are court hearings after court hearings of high school grads having to see a judge in order to get permission to hold ceremonial prayers.

some Constitutional amendments have gotten pushed too far and this is one of them.

They didn't go into depth about Islam. And I would assume they do teach about other religions. They certainly did when I was in school.

Nothing in that "book" was an attempt to convert children to Islam or instructions about how to worship. What were these "many parents" livid about?

We already have privately funded Christian schools right up to the college and university level throughout this country. And of course this push is going on under the most godless President in American history. I don't think this will really happen but the Christian right just keeps pushing for a theocracy.

This is - BY FAR - the most dangerous thing Donald Trump has done. We have to stop him in 2020.

And I say that as a devout Christian myself. God has absolutely NO PLACE in public schools.

I agree with you. I'm not sure why parents would be livid. Based on the first paragraph of the book the OP or whomever posted, the school just learned about Christianity and now they are learning about Islam.

"The Middle Ages (Unit 2) revealed a time in Western Europe
when the Christian Church slowly replaced the Roman Empire. You
learned about the extraordinary power of the Church and its complex
relationship with rulers and the nobility.
While Western Europe became Christian, other powers and ideas
arose in the rest of the former Roman Empire. In the East, a new
religion emerged: Islam..."
