islamMinneha Core Knowledge Magnet Elementary School in Wichita, Kansas, removed its “Five Pillars of Islam” display, which had come under fire from parents and conservative blogs, on Monday.

Still no word on what the original purpose of the display was, but the Kansas chapter of the ACLU’s Legal Director Doug Bonney tells me he never had a formal complaint to investigate, and since the display is down, he “probably won’t bother.”

I’m still waiting on word from the school.

Inquiries continue.

One of those "pillars" is Jihad and the duty of Jihad.

"Core Knowledge" is a federally funded Obama Dept of Education initiative, so no surprise it is mooslim friendly. The writing is on the wall folks - literally - this administration is anti-Christian and pro-mooslim. It is time to just say it; there are no more excuses. We must stand for our values before it is too late for our children.

Remember BENGHAZI!

Don't worry, those who follow, and support the god of the Kaaba like Gahrie will be back. It is the will of Sin for all those who follow Muhammad to invoke Koran 2:191-193.

Now, let's get back to the will of Sin in Egypt, Syria, and the Sinai murdering each other, and those nasty Christian Infidels.

Yes, yes, I know, allah akbar. Small case out of disrespect.

Just for the record, I am not a Muslim, and in fact think Islam is dangerous, and should be treated like fascism and communism.

I am a deist.

The issue is in the 90s, you would have just been told what the "Five Pillars of Islam" are, and that would have been that. You'd likely forget them as soon as the test was over.

Now, you'd be expected to live them (at least temporarily) in order to "walk a mile in their shoes" and for proper PC sensitivity.

I used to regularly teach the five pillars of islam as part of my 7th Grade history curriculum in California.
