One Sullivan County School Board member is opposing the body’s planned adoption tonight of a social studies textbook that says the God of Christianity is the same as Islam’s Allah, while CAIR is calling on Muslims to pack the board room.

Jane Thomas told the Kingsport Times-News that the seventh-grade “My World” book is full of “incorrect statements” also present in the earlier version and will confuse students. The book equates Allah with God.

“We (Christians and Muslims) do not worship the same god. Allah is not God,” Thomas said. “It presents Allah as the same god as Almighty God.” She said the Islamic holy book, the Koran, should not be presented on the same level as the Holy Bible, the Christian word of God with a New Testament including words of Jesus Christ. She also decried the inclusion of the Five Pillars of Islam in the text.

Board member Matthew Spivey said, “We can’t promote any one religion over another,” according to the Times-News.

An earlier version of the book also drew opposition.

Meanwhile, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) called on Muslims to attend the Sullivan County Board of Education meeting to oppose “Islamophobic opposition from at least one board member.”

CAIR provided the email addresses for school board members and instructions for signing up for the public comment portion of the meeting.

The Tennessee Star reported in December 2017 on Muslim proselytization of students with speakers and Muslim advocates’ work in shaping textbook content.

The Star also reported in August 2017 on the Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN) President Rashed Fakhruddin speaking about Islam to a Metro Nashville Public Schools social studies in-service for middle and high school teachers.

  1. The Muslims believe that Allah is one and has no son…why would they want to uphold a text that says their religion is the same as Christians when it clearly violates their own text?

    What happened to separation of Church and State. If Parents are not protesting at the Board of Education then they have nobody to blame but themselves for their children’s future. Ignoring this problem will not make it go away, it will only give them more powers to usher in a One World Religion.

  5. Judith P McFarlane

    Who was stupid enough to let the Muslims in and then let them get a foot hold? Most of the immigrants who have come before do so to assimilate into the American culture. These folks aren’t interested in assimilating, they are interested in taking over and some are too stupid to see that and understand what is happening. You go guys and gals down there. Call bulls**t on CAIR and their nonsense that by calling bulls**t you’re racist. You’re not racists, you’re not so dumb as to not see the handwriting on the wall.

      We must stop them from infiltrating our schools and teaching our children about the cult and Allah. Allah is a fictional moon god designed by Mohammed.

    This is why I am pulling my children out of Sullivan County Schools.

      They should read “Christ, Muhammad and I” written by ex-Muslim Muhammad al Ghazoli, an ex-Muslim and aid to Muammar Ghaddafi. Available on Amazon. This book will open the eyes of those who think Allah and the God of Abraham are the same.

      1. Carole Ann Romeo

        Another great book is “Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus” by Nabeel Qureshi.

    2. Karen Bracken

      Good move. Until more parents pull their kids this crap will not stop. The Muslim issue is not the only issues that plague education in Tennessee. The only place for a child to get a real education today is at the kitchen table.

    Do not give way to this manipulation! I’ve seen it too many times, if you let this Muslim seed go, it will grow and like a weed, doneverything to spread its runners and choke out the garden! Only One True God! Repel this with everything you have as it will be your demise if you do not!God Bless America!🇺🇸

    Our American children should not be subjected to a religion that is not the religion of our Nation! No more than we would be allowed to bring the Christian religion to their schools. Like our pledge of allegiance says…” One Nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all”
    Our God , the one and ONLY ! IS NOT ALLAH!!! The Jewish and Christian God is Jehovah!
    You are welcome to home school your children who don’t want to respect our American religion . You then can teach them your different beliefs… OUR COMMUNITY NEEDS TO STAND UP FOR CHRISTIANS!

    1. Lowell Harris

      Stand up for Christianity. Their religion is not compatible with the US Constitution. They cannot take the oath of office on the Bible.

    2. Landa Carter

      Yes, do not let this Muslim Crap take hold in Tennessee ! Put a stop to it NOW . Run all the Muslimrats at of your state …

    SIMPLY, A RELIGION (by definition is a man or group of men that teach IDEAS about God to the MASSES) that by EXAMPLE EXALTS itself before God while having a heart full of JEALOUSY and openly covet is like EPHRAIM BEFORE GOD. To FURTHER claim the “same God” CLEARLY thier “teachers of ideas” have FAILED and are BUT IDOL worshippers AND SEEK TO FURTHER ENSLAVE CHILDREN TO WHAT IS A REGIME OF OPPRESSION, FEAR AND MANIPULATIONS (AS DESCRIBED IN THIER OWN TEACHINGS) FOR THE VAIN PURPOSE OF RULE IS NOT IN KEEPING WITH OBEDIENCE TO THE ONE TRUE LIVING GOD NOR THE PRINCIPLES OF FREEDOM AND MUST BE REJECTED UNEQUIVOCALLY.

  11. Jane Scroggins

    So to not promote one religion over another they must promote Islam?

  12. Melissa Napier

    Islam has no place in our country nor our schools. This needs to be stopped immediately. This is not a religion but a cult that advocates violence against all Western Christians. Wake liberals!

    1. Carole Williams

      I agree. Islam promotes violence against Christians.

  13. Doty

    You need to rid yourself of this kind of teaching Ameticas children. The cult teaching of Islam is not the Word of God Almighty. Dont be deceived. God will not be mocked.

  14. George smith

    Islam has no place in this country. If they want to worship their god who is satan then go back to your own country. The USA IS NOT A PLACE FOR YOU. This country was founded on judeao christian values. We worship tbe only true God and his son Jesus Christ.

  15. Claire Barnes

    Americans wake up! There is NOTHING about Sharia Law that mixes well with American Constitution. America IS A REPUBLIC, never have we been a democracy! Socialism has never worked and regardless of what the lunatics on the left think, it won’t work now. And neither does multi-culturalusm.

  16. Lee

    What is the matter with this school board? Allah is not the God of the Bible but rather
    of the Koran. Two distinct ideologies. America’s founders were unapologetically Judeo/Christian. We respect all religions but we follow the laws of our founders and our country, America.

  17. Jim Brown

    On the Dome of the Rock Muslim Shrine on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem reads, “Allah has no son.” The Jewish and Christian God is Jehovah. The Muslim god is Allah.

      Mary, mother of Christ is highly honored in the Koran. No, the Muslims don’t believe in God having a son because they confuse that with the beliefs of peoples like the ancient Greeks, where the “gods” would mate with human females to produce children. That is why what we really need is open dialogues between the three great monotheistic religions.
