I have never been a fan of the burqa – the black shroud, or long, flowing garment that covers entirely the Islamic woman from head to toe. Often the only things that can be seen are the eyes, and frequently not even them.

Imagine having to deal with 90° to over 100° heat – being forced to don a full body burqa, made entirely of black fabric during the summer we just experienced. Seems like torture.

To me, it is a freedom thing. Within reason, one should be able to wear whatever one wants. But then there is the real world threat of terrorism. Because of these threats, France, Belgium and the Netherlands have already banned the wearing of the burqa and niqab in public places and violators can face fines and even jail time.

It’s fascinating to see these anything-goes, overly tolerant European nations begin to crack down on their own liberal policies. The Europeans have a reputation of tolerance and succumbing to political correctness – which is how they ended with the mess they are currently in – allowing so many unvetted Muslims into their countries. read more

 Texas School Trying to Cover Itself Over Report of Girls Made to Wear Burqas

 

Two weeks ago I reported on a high school in Lumberton, Texas that forced some girls to wear Muslim burqas as part of a class assignment on Islam.  The lesson is one of many questionable parts of the CSCOPE curriculum that has infiltrated at least 80% of Texas schools.

CSCOPE is a very liberal anti-American and anti-Christian curriculum that seems bent on undermining American history, patriotism and our Christian foundations.  It teaches that the Boston Tea Party was an act of terrorism, Allah is God Almighty, and encourages students to design flags for our new socialistic nation.

In a lesson plan in Lumberton, the CSCOPE lesson was on Muslim women who are being liberated from their centuries old customs.  In one class, some of the girls were told to wear the traditional burqas, the dark full length dresses and head covering.  Several students reported that the lesson seemed more like Muslim propaganda as the teacher told them that she was going to change their perception of Islam.  Another student reported the teacher told them they were not to refer to them as terrorists anymore, that they should be referred to as freedom fighters.
