Why is the practice of Sharia law being promoted in Georgia Schools?
A father in Georgia who took the time to look through his 7th grade daughter’s homework was shocked to find that polygamy was encouraged and spoken highly of in a school assignment that was supposed to correlate to school uniforms and dress code.
Here is the actual paragraph from the assignment.
“My name is Ahlima and I live in Saudi Arabia. … Perhaps two differences Westerners would notice are that women here do not drive cars and they wear abuyah. An abuyah is a loose-fitting black cloth that covers a woman from head to toe. I like wearing the abuyah since it is very comfortable, and I am protected from blowing sand. … I have seen pictures of women in the West and find their dress to be horribly immodest. … Women in the West do not have the protection of the Sharia as we do here. If our marriage has problems, my husband can take another wife rather than divorce me, and I would still be cared for. … I feel very fortunate that we have the Sharia.”
The student’s father says that there should have been a disclaimer that this is not what we believe.
I would take it a step further, and demand that our 7th grade children should be taught that polygamy is against the law.
While they are at it, perhaps they can explain why these “liberated women” are not allowed to drive cars….?
Perhaps they can also explain why men are depicted as animals so lustful and out of control that women must shroud themselves in blankets of cloth to “protect themselves” from their lustful eyes.
What a life of fear these women must lead!
As I listen to the video, I wonder… how many 7th graders are in this school, and why have so few mommies and daddies made an effort to be heard, or to make a comment regarding this teaching?
I’d also like to know why the state of Georgia selected a curriculum like this to pour into the young impressionable minds of their children.
Answers we deserve, but may never get.
Please, do us all a favor, Cobb County School Officials.
Pitch the curriculum and continue to teach the children what a real marriage is, that women should be allowed to drive cars, that women don’t have to shroud themselves in curtains, that men aren’t animals to be protected from, and that there is such a thing as freedom, and that a life under Sharia law is not it.
