Motion Filed In Lawsuit Over Terror-Tied CAIR Curriculum: Propaganda & Proselytizing for Islam At San Diego School District
Chip, chip, chip away at them the way they’ve chipped, chipped, chipped away at the very foundation of our free society.
I applaud the parents working to save their school from terror-tied infiltration.
They are not just saving their children, but the all the children exposed to this sharia, propaganda and proselytizing.
MOTION FILED IN LAWSUIT OVER “ANTI-ISLAMOPHOBIA” CURRICULUM AT SDUSD
Special Treatment for One Religion Over Another is a Violation of the Constitution
San Diego, Calif.— Yesterday, the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund filed a motion for preliminary injunction in its case Citizens for Quality of Education, et al. v San Diego School District Unified, et al. to prevent the school from moving forward on its “Anti-Islamophobia” initiative as a means of combatting potential bullying of Muslim students.
The case, originally filed in May 2017, questions the constitutionality of the Anti-Islamophobia program that singles out one religious group for special treatment by the schools. The initiative incorporates special religious accommodations for Muslim students, where teachers undergo special training to create a curriculum dedicated to ensuring a positive interpretation of Muslim culture and history.
“The San Diego area is known for embracing and promoting diversity with children of every faith— Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim,” says Charles LiMandri, chief counsel in the case and President of the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund. “Students who practice these other faiths cannot benefit from the protection of this program and face an overwhelmingly higher level of discrimination than the Muslim students.”
There is strict protocol for reporting bullying in the state of California—schools act as agencies of the state, so each individual case is reported and goes to the state government. With over 125,000 students enrolled in their K-12 schools, the San Diego School District received only seven reports of religion-motivated bullying. It was not reported how many incidents involved Muslim students.
“If there was overwhelming evidence of cases of bullying, there may be reason for action,” says LiMandri. “But singling out one religious group is a clear violation of the First Amendment.”
In developing the initiative, the SDUSD partnered with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), whose mission is to “change American society.” Some of CAIR’s senior leadership has been convicted of terror-related crimes and whose mission is to “change American society.”
The motion for preliminary injunction specifically calls on the court to prevent SDUSD from partnering with CAIR on this curriculum, citing its goals.
Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund’s mission is to defend religious freedom by providing protective legal services at the trial level to persons whose religious liberty and free-speech rights have been attacked. FCDF is a nonprofit public-interest law firm which defends the conscience rights and religious freedom of those of all faiths and no faith.
