Supreme Court rejects challenge to public school coursework on Islam

October 19, 2019   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: ,

The Supreme Court on Tuesday rebuffed an appeal from a Christian former high school student who argued coursework on Islam at her Maryland school violated her First Amendment rights.

The dispute involves Caleigh Wood, a student at La Plata High School in Charles County, Maryland, who enrolled in a state-mandated World History course during the 2014-2015 school year.

As part of the class, the then-junior was required to complete coursework on “The Muslim World,” in which she learned about Islam. Wood took issue with two parts of the class: a PowerPoint presentation that said most Muslims’ faith “is stronger than the average Christian” and a fill-in-the-blank worksheet in which she had to write, “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah,” which she said was in violation of her Christian faith.

Wood refused to complete some of the class assignments, which led to a lower grade.

    Where did Sharia Law come from?
    Mohammed was approached by an Angel that told him
    about Sharia Law and this Angel neglected to tell him
    About Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit that Jesus
    promised. Because this angel Didn’t tell the Truth he was a
    Demon. Therefore all Muslims are under Demonic
    Influence, Raping 6 year old girls as in Marriage and killing
    your children under the guess of Sharia Law is demonic.
    Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 2 Cor. 11:14
    Of coerce this isn’t PC Politically Correct.
    Allah is real. His name is Satan. Just the opposite of Christ,
    Are we as Oblivious to Sharia Law today as they were then?
