Angry Father Pulls Son From School that was Indoctrinating Islam to Students


Reports that a school in REVERE, Mass. has upset parents because Islam was included in the lesson plan. People are wondering if this is a conspiracy to indoctrinate young impressionable children to Islam. Determination: Real

According to an October 20, 2014 article by WHDH TV News, an ABC affiliate in Boston, "[s]ome parents in Revere were angry when they learned students were being taught about Islam and the Muslim religion."

One parent, Anthony Giannino, pulled his son out of the classroom, when he learned about the inclusion of the Muslim beliefs in the lesson plan.

The article said, "A section of the textbook describing the beliefs of Muslims says, 'I bear witness that there is no God but Allah.'"  

Giannino told reporters, "No religion should be taught at school. In their paper it says Allah is their only God. That's insulting to me as a Christian who believes in just Jesus only."

A letter of explanation was written to the parents by the superintendent of Revere Public Schools to explain that this was intended to be a "part of the history in that section of the curriculum, and stated, 'I want to be very clear that no religion is taught with the purpose of converting students to that religion...'"

The article said that some parents said that they found no issue with the assignment.
