Angry moms speak out over middle school’s teaching of Islam in ‘core curriculum’: Smeared as bigots

Two New Jersey moms are furious that their children are being brainwashed by being forced to take lessons in Islam.

Libby Hilsenrath and Nancy Gayer say it’s great that their children are learning about Islam at the Chatham Middle School―but not if it’s to the exclusion to Christianity and other religions.

Hilsenrath said her child’s “world cultures and geography class” only discusses Islam but doesn’t teach about the Christian and Jewish religions.

“I think it crosses the line, [teaching] one religion and not others,” Hilsenrath told Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

Lesson: ‘There Is No God But Allah’

Hilsenrath was shocked after learning that students were given extensive lessons detailing the five pillars of Islam and were taught “there is no God but Allah” and “Mohammed is the messenger.”

The concerned mom was told that Islam is part of the Chatham Middle School’s “core curriculum.”

In contrast, she was told that it’s inappropriate to teach children the Christian tenet that “Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the light.”

When Libby Hilsenrath and Nancy Gayer emailed Chatham Middle School Superintendent Michael LaSusa, he refused to meet with them, saying there was no point.

When Hilsenrath and Gayer raised the issue at a school board meeting, they were called bigots, racists and compared to the Ku Klux Klan.

Other Religions Not Allowed

Gayer said her son once inserted a bible passage in a homework assignment, but wasn’t allowed to present it in class after being told by his teacher that bible references “belong in Sunday School.”

When the concerned moms asked who had mandated that Islam be part of the Chatham Middle School’s “core curriculum,” Carlson said special interest groups undoubtedly lobbied for the move.

Many on Twitter were disgusted by the Muslim brain-washing, saying this radical indoctrination of our children has to stop.

Are they teaching Islam’s intolerance against homosexuality too?
