Maury County, TN — According to reports, 7th graders in Spring Hill Middle school spent roughly 3 weeks covering Islam in a social-studies course. However during that time students were encouraged to declare that “There is no God but Allah”.
“I am not pleased that my 12-year-old was taught the Islamic conversion prayer” one parent told reporters in an interview. However there were many more parents who were just as upset.
In an interview, Christian mom Joy Ellis also voiced her opposition:
“I was very angry that my child, my Christian child, was made to profess that Allah was the only God,” she told reporters
According to the lessons, students were instructed to write the “Shahada” – “There is no God but Allah; Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.” Students also learned the five pillars of Islam.
“That was crossing the line between teaching the culture and teaching them the Islamic faith,” said one parent. “This is not teaching. This is indoctrination.”
