Skip to comments.US High School Recites Pledge In Arabic: “One Nation Under Allah”
Posted on 06/15/2013 7:40:04 AM PDT by EXCH54FE
Well now, here is evidence of what Ive been saying all along and that is that you cannot be religiously neutral. It just cant happen. Religion is at our very core and if we will not honor the true and living God as God, then we will fill that vacuum with a false god. Exhibit A: Rocky Mountain High School in Colorado. Outrage is building over the fact that students were encouraged to recite the Pledge of Allegiance over the loudspeaker in Arabic replacing one nation under God with one nation under Allah.
The schools principal, Tom Lopez, is standing by his decision to allow the pledge after receiving a flood of complaints from parents outraged over the incident. He claims to not be pushing and Islamic agenda.
Lopez told Fox News, These students love this country. They were not being un-American in trying to do this. They believed they were accentuating the meaning of the words as spoken regularly in English.
Danielle Clark, communications director of the Poudre School District, said We understand not everybody would agree with the students choice. Weve heard there are some who are upset.
On the other hand, she said she received one email from a person who thought it was a great thing.
Catch that? In all of those that responded, Clark got one email that thought this was a great thing! Is this action backwards or what? Parents in Colorado, Im warning you to get your children out of the public school system. This will continue to happen more and more.

The story said the students were “encouraged”... uh huh, and then he says it was their “choice”... right. They didn’t just do this on their own
OUr country is being COUPED EVERYWHERE!
Outrage means nothing. The only language the left understands is a lawsuit.
This is good. We know exactly who to fire.
It’s not Colorado.
It’s public schools.
Manned (and womaned) by ill-educated bottom-O-the-barrel SAT low IQ education majors who received their indoctrination from college “professors” who couldn’t man a McDonalds for a week without getting fired.
(I know there are many good teachers out there. How do you all put up with this cr*p?)
Kids today need more creativity. When they come to the word “Allah”, in reciting the pledge, tell the kids to insert “Jesus” instead. You can bet that principal would have a “double dog stroke”, totally losing his cool and ranting and raving at the students. To the great amusement of all.
“...One Nation, under Jesus, indivisible...”
>> WHAT the HELL is in the AIR in COLORADO????
Not what’s in the air, it’s what’s on the ground... thousands of Kalifornian liberal rat pukes.
They saw that their work “at home” was done — and they had thoroughly trashed their Kalifornian litterbox — so they moved on to Colorado to Kalifornicate it, too.
It began twenty or thirty years ago, actually.
The public needs to remember this incident when the next school board election comes up — or there is another demand for a new school bond.
Vote the bastards out and refuse to fund their anti-American, marxist agenda. OH, and get your kid out of these indoctrination centers ASAP and don’t look back.
Well the President and his staff has Zero Common Sense ,it’s just spreading
Take a guess at what word Arab Christians use for God.
Demographic shifting. Here in Michigan we’re going the other way.
Fire? Yes, CO IS on fire... any connection?
Lopez should go all-out.
Dig a hole in the schoolyard, bury female students up to their necks and pelt them with rocks. Allahu Akbar.
No Jewish or Christian kids allowed in the school. They are unclean. Allahu Akbar.
No toilet paper in the school restrooms; they must wipe with their hand. Toilet paper is an infidel invention. Allahu Akbar.
No singing of the Star-Spangled Banner. Instead, children must recite the Koran, with corporal punishment if they get it wrong. Death if they continually get it wrong. Allahu Akbar.
Mandatory viewing for all students of the latest beheading videos. Girls must sit at the back of the room. Menstruating girls must sit at the very back lest they contaminate others. Allahu Akbar.
Prayer five times a day, with girls removed from the class lest they pollute the prayer with their presence. Allahu Akbar.
Burkas for girls - mandatory, as is facial hair for boys. No exceptions. Allahu Akbar.
Death for insulting Mohammed in any way. Allahu Akbar. Death also for denying the supremacy of Allah. Allahu Akbar.
Etc., etc., etc.
You don't have to answer because I am sure the answer will be:
1)I would never join such a corrupt system.
2) One person can't make a difference.
3) The problem is to deep rooted to be corrected; the entire system must be totally over hauled.
Or some other similar drivel
Yeh, how many high school kids just get up one morning and decide to recite the pledge in Arabic? How about none.
“Dirka Dirka Muhammad Jihad....”
is this real?
All I can say is, even when I was young and in HS, I would have REFUSED to do it.
They were reciting the pledge, for some reason, in Arabic. Allah is the Arabic word for “god” - which can mean the Islamic God or any other. Christian bibles, written in Arabic, use the word Allah. Zeus and Thor and Ganesha are allahs too. Just as in English we see a distinction between the word god and God.
Ill just remind you that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) are the ones demanding that Muslims get special treatment in public schools, even granting that their students be allowed to pray and be excused from class for it. They have also passed out literature to teachers on the Islamic ideology and bashed schools for promoting off campus Bible studies.
“Allah” is Satan, look it up. In the Koran he calls himself “the great deceiver.” Now WHO else could be the “great deceiver” but Satan himself?
Government schools are evil.
You’re correct but I think this was done to highlight the fact that atheists are angered by saying under God. Arabic and Allah may have been a ruse de guerre and as the complaints pour in the complainers will be told now you know how we feel.
Lucifer ( Allah ) is attacking our pledge and our anthem.
Colorado Ping ( Let me know if you wish to be added or removed from the list.)
To be fair, they should now do it in Norwegian to Odin, Latin to Jupiter, Greek to Zeus, etc....
Good think FR doesn’t allow profanity.
But don't Arabic-speaking Christians and Jews use "Allah" for God?
Ship the principal to Syria if he loves that crap so much.
Allah never had a son.
God of the bible had a son.
I'm pretty sure that, where I went to school, the vast majority of us would have refused. We were not ignorant of the head games they were playing with us.
“Hasta la vista, baby” to any new school funding...
Thanks, George. It’s more than Mr. Lopez. It’s Larimer County. Its fascist planning and building regulations were on the Web, the last time I stumbled on them while searching for other tech. info.
All education should be privatized.
Isn't "Allah" the Arabic word for God, and isn't it used by Arabic-speaking Christians and Jews? If not, then what is the proper Arabic name for God of the Bible?
Allah is Satan. Allah is not just another god. Allah is Lucifer of the Bible.
Allah is the antithesis of the loving deity of the Bible.
Okay, so I'll restate the question: What is the name, in Arabic, for the loving deity of the Bible? As far as I know, it's Allah. If that isn't the correct name, then what is?
Arab Christians have been calling God - Allah - in their Bibles, hymns, etc. before the existence of Islam.
One misunderstanding among Muslims, based partially on the Quran (5:119), that Christians worship a Trinity of Father, Mother, and Son.
The Christian Trinity is Father, Son & Holy Spirit.
How can Muslims say we are worshipping the same God when you have such different understandings of the nature of God?
Christians and Muslims are not talking about the same God because Christians are talking about the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit
أمة واحدة تحت يهوه (one nation under Jehovah)
“god” (english) = “allah” (Arabic)
The term “Allah” predates Islam and was (and still is) used by Christian Arabs, including in their translations of the Bible. In ancient Arabic pagan (polytheistic) religion there was a primary god known as “Hubul” who also was at times referred to by the generic “Allah.”
That said, I’ll bet the teacher behind this little circus did not make this clear. Is this some practice of the school to recite the pledge in all the languages of the world? I’m all for teaching languages (including Arabic), but this smells strongly like a PC political manipulation.
“Allah” is not Satan. You’re getting this idea from the fact that the Koran is so screwed up it literally confuses God and Satan.
If some English-speaking fool said “God” is “Satan” it wouldn’t make the English word “God” an improper way to refer to YHWH (”I AM”).
But I guarantee, that teacher in Fort Collins is trying to obfuscate rather than clarify. I’ll bet that teacher did not know that the Arabic term Allah preceded Islam by 1,000 years.
I never said that he was. I have been arguing that "Allah" is God.
Yes, my best and most sincere understanding is the best way to say _it_, would be:
One nation under Yehovah!
Especially, if were true. Sadly, I think Obama was right when he said years ago: this is no longer a Christian nation.
Truth is that claiming to be a nation _under_ Yehovah and then living in most every way contrary to the _way_ of Him, is not being a nation under Him.
BRAVO!!! Great post!
