A Texas lawmaker is launching an investigation after a teacher reportedly invited female students to dress up in Islamic garb and told then told her classroom they should call Muslim terrorists freedom fighters.
The lesson on Islam was taught in a world geography class at Lumberton High School. The teacher brought burqas and other Islamic clothing for the female students to wear. They were also assigned to write an essay based on a Washington Post story that blamed Egypts troubles on democracy instead of the Muslim Brotherhood.
I am outraged, one of the parents, who asked not to be identified, told Fox News.
Sen. Patrick said he understands why the parents are upset.
Could you imagine if someone asked a Muslim student to dress up as a priest, the senator asked. The parents of a Muslim student might be rather upset about that. The young girls father wondered why the teacher was giving children lessons about Islam in a geography class.
She went from learning about Mexico to learning about Russia to learning about Islam, he said. Islam is not a country. Islam is not a continent.

The liberal mantra of “separation of church and state” only applies when it’s against Christians.
Given the mental horsepower of this geography teacher, she will go back to the study of geography and begin with Freedonia.
This teacher will rise rapidly in the ranks of the democrat party. But for now, it should be fired.

I’d like to see the reaction if the report had this to say:
A Texas lawmaker is launching an investigation after a teacher reportedly ORDERED female students to UNDERGO FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATIONS.
She was teaching students that they had “the freedom to wear the burka”
(no mention of how they would NOT have the freedom to take off the burka)
This report is somewhat different from that at WND:
"in Lumberton, Texas, this week, high school girls were made to wear burqas as part of a CSCOPE study of Islam." (Given the kind of people who would come up with this sort of foolishness, I expect the latter was actually the case), but it still needs attention
I am one who called my state rep and gave them a piece of my mind on this.
I hope it pays off.
I think the very first thing the parents should ask the school board is “When are this teacher and principal to be fired?”
Thus the axiom is not what was taught or defended, but why are such people being employed by the district.
If the school board hems and haws about firing them, advise them that their phoney-baloney jobs are on the line as well, so unless they want to join the teacher and principal on the unemployment line, they stop making excuses and fire them.
The "committee," or who ever, that approved this CSCOPE bullshit should be fired and permanently prevented from ever working on curriculum anywhere.
This amounts to treason: The betrayal of one's own country by waging war against it or by consciously or purposely acting to aid its enemies. Source.
Do some research. This CSCOPE garbage is really awful. And it has a lot of revisionist history in it besides the BS about Islam. CSCOPE need to go down hard and never be heard from again.
The NEA will quickly come to her aid.
Would you like to wear one - or are you a religious bigot?
Some invitations aren’t really invitations.
Or the difference between an "A" in the class, and an "F".
Wait - do they even do A's and F's in school these days? I bet we do in Texas, but my girls have been out of school for near 30 years... and the younger was home schooled.
Holy cow, I live 10 miles from the HS and my co-worker lives within the school district and this is the first we’ve heard of this. There has been no local coverage that I am aware of.
And the school supports what the teacher did. Wow. Texas is becoming California.
How about have the muzzie students dress up like rabbi’s? Or wiccan priestesses?
