Tennessee Legislators File Bill “To Stop Islamic Religious Indoctrination in Tennessee Schools”


Three state legislators from northeast Tennessee have filed a bill they say will stop Islamic religious indoctrination in school. The law will allow teachers to teach religion in class, but forbid outright proselytizing. This comes in response to multiple complaints from parents that schools were asking students to do assignments such as writing “there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet.” Via The Chattanoogan:

“No one has a problem with world religions being taught from a historical perspective. The problem is that right now in Tennessee, the standards are so broad they open the door to proselytizing our public school students. While other bills have been filed in an attempt to fix this problem, this piece of legislation has real teeth, and we believe it will be a giant step forward in fixing this important issue.”

“I did not fight radical Islam in Iraq just to come home and find our children being indoctrinated,” Rep. Van Huss said.
