What special privilege? How is asking for a holiday a special privilege? Would everyone not take the holiday?
Glad to see my home state, and my home county, make a solid decision.
Other than the secularized holiday of Christmas what other religious days do public schools close to honor?
Why don't those seeking to celebrate the holiday just keep their kids at home that day? About 2/3 of my high school would take off the first day of deer season without it being officially acknowledged. :wavey:
That's the problem: all those dual-income parents, all those single parents, all those families that *must* work to feed their kids -- would have to take a day off, or pay for childcare. For a minority, with less than a week's notification and planning.
Not to mention the government funding that's involved for attendance.
Why didn't these parents ask for this months ago? It's not like this popped up and surprised them. Instead, it's now a way for the muslim activists to point fingers and talk about how persecuted they are for their faith.
Which seems to be a narrative right now. No doubt connected to the coming election. The BLM has been exposed and is now losing steam. The dems need a new victim.
Zaac at the Great Train Robbery: "They're just asking for some money, how is that being rude?"
You could say the same thing about any day. I just don't see any special privilege in asking for a day off when everyone would be able to take it if they chose.
What do the folks think the school system would do? Say "Hey, only the Muslims are able to take this day off. The rest of you have to be in class."
Okay. I spoke about the lack of it being a special privilege.
And the GOP seems to have its cross-hairs on Muslims. Guess y'all got tired of picking on immigrants.
Last December, Gov Cuomo signed a bill that would "... days when religious or cultural observances will keep most students at home...."
Fox news reported that- a parent may keep a child out of school for a religious holiday.
Now, if I went to a Muslim country - and DEMANDED to make "...Christimas a day off of school.....
Here is an article about this subject:
You would probably support satanists and witches from wanting a holiday????
Oh, that's right, they do have a holiday! Halloween. :smilewinkgrin:
If Muslims want a holiday, let the go to a country that is established in Islam. They came here looking for a new and better life. Let them ASSIMILATE!
Is there anything you don't rant about :sleep:
if you can get one, why can't they?
You mean assimilate the same way that the white people did? Amazing how the old white people are always talking about assimilate when white people in this country set the example for not assimilating.
Yes. Your ability to make relevant comments.
In the city of Franklin, Tennessee (The county seat of Williamson County, TN which is located to the immediate SW of Metro Nashville-Davidson County) the latest controversy hasn't gotten to the Muslims that reside there--I don't have any figures on that county's Muslim population, but I do know that there's quite a few of them around since they acquired a few rather large deserted buildings that abut each other and made it into a mosque just off of Main Street in Franklin, only a block or two from the city's square.
Apparently the relationship(s) between both the city and county political and education leaders there seem to be quite well compared to other Middle TN counties that don't have anywhere near the number of Muslims within their boundaries.
Anyway some time last year, the Franklin City Board of Education ruled that each Middle and High School must teach in their required "World Religions" a unit or two on the Islamic religion from a state-approved curriculum.
At first, there seemed to be relatively little flak from most of the parents and the local PTA's because they thought it'd be a good thing for their children to learn about the religion of the boys and girls who're in their classrooms wearing that "different-looking clothes" and never have ham sandwiches in their lunch bags.
Unfortunately, one of the middle schools in their district selected, sight unseen, a very pro-Islamic curriculum that suggested the children not only learn from their textbooks about Islam, but also have them perform certain of their rituals, prayers, and readings from the Koran.
Moreover, the curriculum suggested that if there was a mosque nearby to take a field trip to it that'd be hosted by one of the leaders of the mosque. Of course the leader of the mosque in downtown Franklin was more than accommodating when one of the school buses from the school off loaded the students to a side room so that, if they weren't Muslim [About 5-6 of them are of the Islamic faith.], they could still observe their rituals being performed.
The straw that broke the camel's back on this was that the woman who taught this particular class has a few of her close relatives (brothers and/or sisters) who are practicing Islamists.
One of them is something similar to an "evangelist." Unbeknownest to the parents, she had her brother (It actually might have been a BIL I think.) address her class to talk about "the glories of Allah and why Muslims preserved higher learning for several centuries while the "Christianized West" had suffered through their "Dark Ages" for almost 1,000 years.
While superficially that was true about the Dark Ages (c. AD 500 - AD 1000), he apparently went overboard about the "glories of Allah."
Many irate families have called for the dismissal of the teacher and the dumping of this required "World Religions" class. It remains to be seen what will happen to this situation at this point.
Maybe it's just a coincidence, but tonight at sunset begins the Jewish Yom Kippur, "The Day of Atonement." :smilewinkgrin:
Yep and half the teachers at my high would take the first day of deer season off. And they and the students would have their shotguns in the racks behind the rear window of their trucks parked on school property.
Nope, the illegal immigrants still need to be "picked on", but so do the increasingly demanding activist Muslims. (The folks can multi-task. :thumbs: :smilewinkgrin: )
Now we'd all be in jail. I took a .22 rifle to shop class. The only thing missing was the bullets. I refinished the stock and took the rest of it apart to blue the barrel and receiver. But we digress....
Christmas and Easter are no longer considered school holidays in NY. The fact they fall during Winter and Spring recess is purely coincidental. :wavey:
And as of this coming year NY DL's will no longer be acceptable ID's to board and airplane with. Yall just losin it all in yankee land.
If we were lucky we'd make it to jail instead of being shot dead on sight.
I grew up in Steuben county Ny. The deer capitol of the United States. When I worked in the big city the city slickers would ask me if i was a deer hunter. I told them where I come from we don't have to hunt for deer we know exactly where they are. The middle of the highway. :smilewinkgrin:
It'll be your turn before ya know it.
