“Not again!” Parents concerned about the seeming spread of Islamic “education” in our nation’s schools may well say after reading the headline above.
In just the past few months we’ve reported on: a Nation of Islam pamphlet telling 3rd graders America’s Founding Fathers were racists. A high school girl forced to produce propaganda promoting Islam to younger students. A Boston-area father pulling his son out of class after he was subjected to Islamic indoctrination without even being notified.
And now a Maryland Marine dad has been banned from his daughter’s school after getting into an argument with the faculty over an infuriating homework assignment.
Local affiliate KDFW reported that Kevin Wood received a no trespassing order on Tuesday after he objected to a Charles County high school’s assignment teaching the benefits of Islam to students .
Wood, a a former corporal and eight-year combat veteran in the U.S. Marine Corps, could not believe what La Plata High School was teaching his daughter: making her memorize and recite the “Five Pillars of Islam” – the core of Islamic faith, along with a highly-sanitized biography of Islam’s “prophet” Mohammed.
Wood and wife Melissa said they thought religion was not supposed to be taught in schools, and they pointed out the outrageous hypocrisy that only Islam is being taught – Christianity and Judaism aren’t anywhere in the curriculum.
“We cannot discuss our Ten Commandments in school, but they can discuss Islam’s Five Pillars?” said Melissa.
And as we have come to expect from such disturbing “lessons,” the school secretly gave the assignment without even considering that some parents might be upset over it — and of course did not bother informing them of it beforehand.
“None of us parents knew about this and they didn’t tell anybody,” Kevin said.
So Kevin confronted the vice principal over the content of the assignment, and an argument allegedly ensued.
A school district spokeswoman, Katie O’Malley-Simpson, said Wood threatened to cause problems at the school during his conversation with the vice-principal, but provided no specific information about any “threats” the former Marine had made.
Wood denies making any threats, and said “multiple witnesses” support his account. Kevin said he explained in no uncertain terms that he does “not believe in” Islam and wants his daughter removed from class while other students study the Muslim religion. The school refused, and later handed Kevin a “no tresspassing” order, forbidding him from stepping foot on school grounds.
For the family, the worst part of this has been seeing Kevin, who bravely fought to defend our rights, being made out as some sort of hater by the school. “They’re making him sound like he’s some bad person,” Melissa said. “He’s not a bad person. He fought for your country.”
Of course he’s not, and it is disgraceful that she would even be made to feel that way.

I can’t tell you how many emails and social media comments Top Right News has received in the past weeks from parents concerned about the spread of Islam in their children’s schools — almost always in the complete absence of balance of other religions. “It is indoctrination, plain and simple,” one upset Mom wrote to me, reflecting many others.
