Quoting Quiverfull: Public Schools Promote Islam?

Quoting Quiverfull: Public Schools Promote Islam? November 1, 2013

by Nancy Campbell from her site Above Rubies – Are We In The Know?

There is always far more going on behind the scenes than we ever dream about, isn’t there? Here’s another thing we need to be aware of.

Did you know that public schools now have a new textbook called, World History, which promotes Islam and dumbs down Christianity? This book has a 36-page chapter devoted to teaching Islam as a peaceful religion and Muslim conquests as benign “occupations,” but Christian conquests as “massacres.” The book practically ignores Christianity, except to teach that Christians are the ones who kill, maim, and slaughter.

Can you believe this is happening in our country that was founded on Christian principles? And your tax dollars are paying for this brainwashing.

Informative Christian parents can no longer keep their children in public schools.

Does anyone know the name of the school book and the author that she is talking about here?

    I’ve taken many a world history class, and they don’t “promote” Islam (or make Christianity out to be the boogeyman of the world)…But there IS more of an emphasis on Europe once the Romans start up, and the predominant (or at least, publicly-recognized and promoted) religion in Europe for most of history was…Yep…Christianity. Guess who ruled the “world” for a few centuries? Christians. Guess who decided that they didn’t like having Muslim/Jewish/French/Russian neighbors? You got it again. Christians.

    The more representation a certain group has in government (or history), the easier it is to notice just how much crap they’ve dealt to others.

    Hmm, I don’t think anyone who has been on the receiving end of an occupation would call it “benign”. And there are periods in history where Christians did massacre others.

    I have a feeling this chapter of whatever book she’s talking about is discussing the Crusades.

    What’s an informative parent? A newscaster with kids?

    What “World History” text is she talking about? I Goggled it, and there are dozens of “World History” texts, one of which discusses Muslim invasions, not occupations.

    I think Nancy Campbell has done an excellent job of dumbing down Christianity without any outside help.
    I notice she doesn’t give a year, edition, authors, or any other identifying information about the book, and since there are any number of textbooks called “World History” she has successfully managed to frighten every one of her followers to avoid any book with that title.

    I think so too. I’m guessing there’s also mention that the Islamic world was responsible for stuff like algebra (though I don’t think that’s going to make a lot of high schoolers convert).

    It always amazes me how quick people are to use Islam to demonize something. Not long after 9/11 (same school year) I remember my dad pulling me aside and quizzing me on what we were learning in history class because he’d heard on the news that there was a middle school not just teaching about Islam, but *teaching Islam*, having kids do prayers and act like an observant Muslim might. Looking back, it’s mind-boggling. I have no idea if that story was ever confirmed (I was eighth grade,not really into following the news), but I have serious doubts as to its reality.

    Looking back, that may have been the first time I ever really started doubting what the news said. And questioning what my dad believed. Because when we got to the segment on the Islamic empire, it was just facts on history and what Islam teaches. Nothing else. And I had gone into it with a suspicious mind because of the quizzing I had gotten, so I was very confused about what to think at the time.

    given the influence that Texas school systems have on text book content, her claim that this textbook is widely in use throughout the US means that we’d have to believe the state of Texas is actively promoting Islam over Christianity.

    Show of hands for those who think this is likely.

    Oy, yeah. And in one of my world history classes, after ancient Egypt we skipped any chapter that didn’t have to do with Europe. (Japan makes a brief cameo in WWII but then disappears after that) Muslims appear during the Crusades but that’s about it.

    … You see, there’s a reason a ton of students in my 9th grade World Geography class were surprised to learn that Islam was the name of a religion and not a country. (I couldn’t act superior over them for it, since I only learned that a few months before…)

    Considering what a big religion, and influence, that Islam is, a 36 page chapter doesn’t seem too big. And I really doubt that the chapter is entirely dedicated to talking about how great Islam is.

    From the sound of it, I doubt she went to a public school.
