A hat tip to Internet activist JulieRNR21, who spotted and circulated an invaluable Investor’s Business Daily editorial here. Seems the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals thinks it’s just fine to have a two-week indoctrination and role-playing course of Islam in California public schools. Key grafs:
In the California course on world religions, Christianity is not
presented equally. It’s covered in just two days and doesn’t
involve kids in any role-playing activities. But kids do get a good
dose of skepticism about the Christian faith, including a biting
history of its persecution of other peoples. In contrast, Islam
gets a pass from critical review. Even jihad is presented as an
“internal personal struggle to do one’s best to resist temptation,”
and not holy war.
The ed consultant’s name is Susan L. Douglass. No, she’s not a Christian scholar. She’s a devout Muslim activist on the Saudi government payroll, according to an investigation by Paul Sperry, author of “Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives Have Penetrated Washington.” He found that for years Douglass taught social studies at the Islamic Saudi Academy just outside Washington, D.C. Her husband still teaches there.
Interesting tidbit here. Paul Sperry used to be the Washington bureau chief for IBD; he was let go for excessive zeal, as I understand it.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
