American public school forcing girls to wear head covering for mosque visit

Where are the liberals calling for separation of church and state when you want them?

Girls attending a taxpayer funded Douglas County, Col., school are going to be forced to wear Muslim head coverings during a field trip to local mosque scheduled for Jan. 13, according to EAGNews.org.

The situation came to light after local radio host Peter Boyles said he got a hold of the permission slip sent to parents for the excursion.

The world religions field trip is next Tuesday, January 13. We will be visiting the Denver Mosque, the Assumption Greek Orthodox Cathedral, and the Rodef Shalom Synagogue. We will then eat lunch at Park Meadows Food Court.

Students must either bring a sack lunch or money to purchase lunch at the food court.

THERE IS A DRESS CODE FOR THIS TRIP: All students must wear appropriate long pants. Ankles must be covered. Girls must bring wide scarves or hooded sweatshirts for the mosque.

Boyles explained that public schools are not allowed to treat male and female students differently.

“Public schools are forbidden from holding girls to different standards than boys,” Boyles said. “They’re holding these girls to a different standard…it’s a religious reason.”

The host, who has been outspoken on Islam in the past, went on to assert that Muslim beliefs should not be forced upon these school children.

“Islam dictates,” he said. “Repressive practices against women and Islamophobia will trump womens’ rights, animal rights, every time.”

“That’s their belief,” he added. “That’s wonderful. But don’t apply it to public school kids in this country. In my mind this school is essentially mandating children being taught Sharia, girls, the subjugation of their rights. Screw you.”

Why not? It’s been working so well in Europe.
