(Conservative Post ) A former Marine and his wife launched a civil rights lawsuit against their daughter’s public high school, claiming the district forced the 16-year-old to take classes that promote Islam over Christianity and Judaism.
John Wood, a former Marine, and his wife Melissa Wood are going head up with La Plata High School in Maryland.
The family claims their daughter spent only one day in a modern history class studying Christianity, followed by two weeks studying Islam.
The daughter allegedly ‘had to profess the Shahada by claiming ”There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”’
“Such discriminatory treatment of Christianity is an unconstitutional promotion of one religion over another,” President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center Richard Thompson said.
Thompson claims that, for non-Muslims, reciting such a statement is the equivalent of converting to Islam.
