Islamic supremacism is taught in American public schools, one of which is Porter Ridge High School in Union County, North Carolina.
A ninth-grade world-history teacher assigned an in-class worksheet about Islam which the pupils had to fill in with the "correct" answers (the worksheet's first part is in the above picture).
FALSITIES TAUGHT AT SCHOOL
Some of those answers were that Islam is a peaceful religion, Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the world and most Muslims' faith is stronger than the average Christian.
Islamic Scriptures and history are testament to the fact that the exact opposite of the first is true.
The second has been investigated and proven false. It's one of those cases in which, if you repeat a lie enough times, it is eventually believed. The claim that Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the world has been made by Muslim websites providing no explanation or grounds for the assertion:
As proof, they usually present unverifiable claims and baseless media quotes. Apparently ABC News had claimed "Already more than a billion-people strong, Islam is the world's fastest-growing religion", a quote which cannot be traced to its source. Also CNN World News stated "Fast-growing Islam winning converts in Western world", a statement which they fail to back up with any evidence.The Encyclopedia of Islam Myths has made a thorough investigation leading to this:
Conclusion:After careful research and examination of the sources, WikiIslam has reached this conclusion:
- There are more new Christians added to the world population than any other religion on earth every day. This data makes the entire discussion about "rates of growth" irrelevant. The fact is today, that Christianity is the fastest growing religion on this most critical basis. This may change, but today, in 2004 AD, Christians take the prize for being the fastest growing religion.
- On none of the 6 continents are Muslims the fastest growing religion.
- That Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world is pure myth at best and at worst a deliberate deception of solid statistical facts.
According to "The Future of the Global Muslim Population," published in January 2011 by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, the growth and anticipated future growth of Islam is primarily due to "their relatively high birth rate, the large number of Muslims of childbearing age, and an increase in life expectancy in Muslim-majority countries" and conversions play little part in the increase due to available data suggesting "Islam loses as many adherents via conversion as it gains."An analysis by Islamoscope also arrived at something similar:
In 2006, countries with a Muslim majority had an average population growth rate of 1.8% per year (when weighted by percentage Muslim and population size). This compares with a world population growth rate of 1.12% per year, and according to the World Christian Encyclopaedia, between 1990 and 2000, Islam received around 865,558 converts each year. This compares with an approximate 2,883,011 converts each year for Christianity during the same period...
All the actual data available reveals that Islam is neither the fastest growing religion by number of adherents or the fastest growing religion by percentage-increase.
The growing number of Muslims in the world is due primarily to the higher than average birth-rates, and consequent population growths of Muslim countries and communities. And their growing presence in non-Muslim societies such as Europe and the Americas is overwhelmingly due to immigration.
Furthermore, converts to Islam are vastly outnumbered by those who choose to leave the religion and embrace another faith or worldview. And the majority of converts that Islam does manage to attract, decide to leave within the first few years of practicing it.
From the statistics available we can clearly see that the fastest growing religion in the world in real terms is Christianity. Where Islam gains 23 Million new adherents annually, Christianity gained 30 Million new adherents in that same period. Thus, Christianity is the fastest growing religion in the world.The Religion of Peace has other intelligent considerations to add:
Islam is not "growing faster" than other religions because “people are accepting it,” but rather because the birthrate among Muslims is significantly higher than it is among Christians and others, particularly in the West. Kids can be raised to believe in just about anything, so growth from a higher birthrate hardly constitutes any sort of genuine accomplishment.This takes care of the second answer in the school worksheet of those quoted here. The third is impossible to verify: how do you measure the strength of the faith of a person, let alone of billions of people? Certainly Muslims will tend to submit more easily to Islamic prescriptions through fear of the immediate consequences rather than free will, but Christians displaying the greatest courage possible to a human being by remaining Christian in the face of the most horrendous persecution (generally from Muslims) are witnesses (martyrs in Greek) to the value of their faith.
A 2011 Pew Research study of global Muslim growth rates concluded that there is "no net growth through conversion", meaning that for every person who "embraces" Islam (usually by changing their nominal designation after marrying a Muslim man), there is at least one other who is willing to leave the faith in spite of harsh consequences.
Of the so-called “converts” from other religions, only a miniscule number were active believers. Nearly all are really just people who had no faith to convert from – regardless of their nominal designation. In the West and other parts of the non-Muslim world in which all religions are allowed to compete equally such people experiencing a spiritual awakening are far more likely to turn to Christianity than Islam...
In the Muslim world, Christians who evangelize are imprisoned, assaulted, beaten, set on fire, shot, bludgeoned, and tortured by Islamists. Missionaries are raped and killed. Former Muslims who embrace Christianity as their religion of choice are thrown in jail along with their children, sexually assaulted, crippled, hanged, stoned, stabbed, dismembered, carved up, scalded, beheaded, brutalized, doused with acid, burned alive and publicly executed...
...and Muslims brag that their religion is growing faster!
Muslims who gloat over their “fast growing" religion are no different than the child from our example who deludes himself into thinking that he is smarter and better for “beating” a much wiser adult in a game played under manufactured conditions that render the artificial “victory” entirely meaningless.
So the more pertinent question isn't which religion is growing faster, but which is growing faster where people are free to choose. In this environment, Christianity wins easily. Converts are even won in Muslim countries under draconian conditions that Muslim evangelists never have to face anywhere on the planet. When was the last time a person was killed or tortured merely for embracing Islam?
There are other falsities in the study sheet (for example the definition of jihad as "inner struggle", whereas the most important element of jihad is the physical, holy war against infidels).
In addition, it contains several elements of overt Leftist political indoctrination disguised as "correct" answers, something that goes against the ethics of public school education. These are some of them: "These fundamentalists represent a small percentage of the population of Islam, so we must be careful not to label or assume.", "To win [the war on terror] we need to raise the standard of living in areas of squalor" and "'start seeing Muslims' and avoid racial profiling".
The part about Islamic culture and empires is also rife with factual errors ad distortions for such a short documents.
A MUM TOLD THE MEDIA
The mother of a student who had to fill in these answers in the worksheet was deeply outraged over them, so much so that she contacted WJYZ-TV, a Fox affiliate, denouncing this educational abomination.
"If you are going to do it, let’s do it right," she said. "I really feel there is a spin on this."
The statement that most upset the mother, who wished to remain anonymous, is: "Most Muslims' faith is stronger than the average Christian."
She called the school to see if it teaches Christianity as much as Islam, but didn't receive any answer. Her son told her they skimmed Christianity in class.
"YOU CAN'T TEACH CHRISTIANITY IN SCHOOL, BUT YOU CAN FORCE-FEED OUR KIDS ISLAM"
Another parent had in October expressed outrage over his daughter’s Islam-related school assignment.
Kevin Wood, an Iraq veteran who presumably had had ample opportunity to see the "religion of peace" in action, was upset to discover a teacher had asked his daughter to write a three-page essay about Islam’s Five Pillars, Mecca and Mohammed.
"I don’t agree with it," Wood told Fox News. "I said you can’t study God or Christianity in school; you have atheists suing schools for saying God and the Pledge [of Allegiance], and not being able to say prayers before football games … but we can force-feed our kids Islam.”
For that he was banned from his daughter’s high school.
