Islam Indoctrination Dropped at Ohio Middle School

After Jenny McKeigue, a lone parent aided by Christian lawyers, threatened a lawsuit, the Olmsted Falls City Schools opted to omit the video titled “30 Days: Muslim and America” from the 7th grade world history classes. The mother of three children in the district made the constitutional challenge after district officials scoffed at her complaint that her son “was required to memorize the 5 Pillars of Islam.”
“In response to McKeigue’s criticism, the school district invited Olmsted Falls pastors to review the video. To the school district’s chagrin, several pastors agreed with McKeigue and also questioned the accuracy of the video. Dr. Todd Hoadley, school superintendent at the time, disregarded their concerns. At a March 2013 board meeting, and in private conversations, he defended the video with the astonishing argument that the inaccuracies of the video proved its value.”

A conservative Christian group has criticized the Dublin schools superintendent for allowing students to watch a video about Islam in the last district he led.

[Richard Thompson of] The Thomas More Law Center says the Olmsted Falls district near Cleveland recently agreed to stop showing the video 30 Days: Muslims and America in seventh-grade world history classes after the law center threatened a constitutional challenge.

Todd Hoadley was superintendent of the Cleveland-area district until he was hired at Dublin last school year. “Dr. Todd Hoadley, school superintendent at the time, disregarded their concerns,” the group wrote in a media release.

From "School cancels Muslim proselytizing in class" posted at World Net Daily 9/27/13

[Richard Thompson of the Thomas More Law Center was] distressed to find during the course of his investigation that at least one teacher had ridiculed and disparaged the parent who raised concerns about the proselytizing, and “even suggesting she should be fired from her part time job as alumni director for the school.”

. . . Thomas More Law Center [reported] “The questionable video features a Christian (Dave) agreeing to embrace the religion of Islam and the Muslim culture by living with a Muslim family for 30 days in Dearborn, Michigan. Dave was required to live, dress and eat as a Muslim, study the Quran daily and participate in Muslim prayer. The video features several instances of Muslim prayer and even a look at a ‘how to pray in Islam’ sheet complete with Dave practicing how to pray and reciting lines such as ‘I testify that there is no God other than the Almighty’ and ‘I testify that Mohammad is the messenger of God.’”

Further, it portrays non-Muslims as “uneducated bigots” and tells students “if they hear someone say something wrong about Islam, it is their responsibility to fix it.”
