What's Going on in Tennessee?

Quote:ISLAM, ANTI-SEMITISM SNEAK INTO TENNESSEE TEXTBOOKS

A group that combats anti-Semitism is asking the governor of Tennessee to investigate school textbooks not only because of instances of anti-Semitism but also hundreds of inaccuracies, biases and disinformation, including anti-American and anti-Christian content.

The texts are in direct violation of the U.S. and Tennessee Constitutions by “teaching the religious dogmas of one religion,” Islam, charges Laurie Cardoza-Moore, founder of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations.

Her Tennessee group educates media professionals, Christian leaders and Christians around the globe about the dangers of the “new anti-Semitism.”

She is asking Gov. Bill Haslam to do a “full and thorough” review of the work that was done under Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman, who recently quit.

During Huffman’s tenure, not only was the controversial federal-government program Common Core imposed on schools, but the Tennessee Textbook Commission adopted books that were found to contain more than 700 problematic sections.

I smell something rotten in the great state of Tennessee.

First I heard of it. Williamson county would elect George Patton for President if he was alive, so this sounds off to me. That's the 6th wealthiest county in America, home to Nissan USA, country stars, etc. My daughter lived there.


I don't like WND for a source myself, just sort of subjective media.

See this:

"With regards to Islam this textbook rises to half-truth at best. There is a constant apologist bias in refusing to talk about Islamic cruelty."

Probably accurate and so has our( Christendom) history been sugar coated.


Our nation is run by a secularist elite, they are going to side with any anti Christian meme, they see Islam as a tactical ally/competitor against Christianity. This atheist versus Christian war has been ongoing since the early 18th century, the first victims of the French revolution were Catholic priests.

If Islam succeeds here, their first beheadings will be these atheists. The goofs hate us enough they can't see that far ahead.

I don't doubt that textbooks can be as bad as reported. Those who write them and get them used in schools are hapless non-entities with delusions of knowing things that they heard from other idiots and never bothered to check things out.

I just saw this morning a bill working it's way through our legislature that prohibits any teaching about any religious thing in a public setting before 10 th grade. Must be response to the Islamic pr campaign.

I'll let you guys know if it passes, I cannot imagine why it wouldn't here. Our culture is not quite as sold out as most the nation is, IMO. BTW, the Muslims know it is aimed at them even though the senator denies it, he's lying and he knows it.

If he had his way, our teachers would all be Baptist preachers, I know a fundy when I see one.

I live next door to a Baptist minister, he's a really nice guy.

Is he a member of the Southern Baptist Convention?

I don't believe that is the name of a Baptist convention. Its just the first baptist church in the area.

I'm Roman Catholic, haven't a clue about the Baptist Church. I believe they are part of Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec. My wife's cousin was a Baptist minister in Denmark. He retired last year. He is really charismatic and built his church's membership to about 400 families before he retired. Quite and accomplishment considering most Danes are Lutheran. I also think his church was associated with American Baptists as he spent quite a bit of time studying in the US. My wife and I were married at a Luthern Church in Denmark.

The American Baptist Churches USA is a denomination which sprouted from the 1638 First Baptist Church of Providence, Rhode Island. The ABCUSA is a member of the National Council of Churches, the Baptist World Alliance and the World Council of Churches. There are many churches all over the country that share the name "First Baptist Church", usually with "of (place your city name here)" at the end.

Southern Baptists (all fundys) can be very nice, the ones I know are limited in their theological depth. Its a very facile view of what God desires for His people, IMO.

Unfortunately, while facile, for some reason I cannot put a finger on, they expect to lump Caesar and Christ together in some respects like the liberal believer does , just in different areas.

The American fundy wants USA Caesar to kill everyone on earth who doesn't accept "God's nation's" (the USA) hegemony or Israeli hegemony in their areas because they think Israel is going to become "God's nation" even when fellow Christians are the victims of it, that is nothing to the fundy.

Whereas the liberal wants the mandates of Christ for the church done via Caesar, i.e. feeding the poor.

I oppose both and if you are going to make a theological error, it is best to do the liberal error.

Having the urge to kill everyone who resists everything about the USA or Israel is not exactly part of the Gospel that Jesus is associated with. At least the liberal wants to fulfill real biblical mandates.

You must be a follower of the Presbyterian Church.

Yes, I agree that the liberal Progressive wants the state to do these things for everyone.

WB,

No, non denominational believer here.

John,

How about our fundy cons desiring Caesar Sam go around earth killing everyone who resists our role? They are hardly progressives. Ron sat right here and showed disrespect to Tait when Tait questioned some of our foreign wars, "get out of our way" was how he expressed it I recall.

The fundy wants an American killing machine for all who do not bow the knee to us and thinks God backs that play, the progressive wants Caesar to feed and pay bills for everyone. The error on the left is a much better error for a Christian to make. Not even a close call.

I read an article about twenty years ago that stated the first raw recruits to die in Vietnam were usually the Roman Catholics, the last Souther Baptists.

What I heard was that the name "First Baptist Church" in any given city is achieved by whichever church chooses to call itself that first. I was attending a Baptist Church for several years before a larger Baptist church was built just down the road, and the newcomer called itself the First Baptist Church. They were just the first one to call themselves that. It doesn't mean anything.

(I became a Seventh-day Adventist when I was 15. Before that I was raised a "Free-Will Baptist." Being "Free-Will" means they do not believe in the Once-Saved-Always-Saved dogma.)

President Obama raised the issue of the Crusades not long ago, as an attempt to show that Christians are just as bad as Moslems when it comes to violence. He apparently takes no note of the fact that the Crusades were 900 years ago, and came in response to Islamic military invasions of Europe.

As for the right wing or left wing use of Caesar, Palladin claimed that the left-wing use is more "Christian." He forgets that all throughout history, the left wing use has always been an excuse for tyranny. The Roman Empire claimed to be providing peace, justice, and a legal system for the benefit of everyone--plus a living "dole" for all the Roman citizens, paid for by heavy taxation of other countries. Pure socialism. That was as left wing as you can get. They were tolerant of all "gods," except the one that claimed to be the One True God, or that openly denied the deity of Caesar. It was also a system that Christianity had to overcome in order to gain sway throughout Western Civilization. It was the left wing Roman Empire that actually crucified Christ (the Jews were not allowed that authority), and for over a century fed Christians to the lions in the Colloseum.

Ron,

NO, I do not claim American left wing Christians are more Christian( one can only be in The Body of Christ or not), I claim their errors are more benign than American right wing fundy, blood thirsty killers, that's all.

At least the lefty believer wants to help feed and not kill people as a first thought. I'm talking about left or right American Christians, not the anti Catholic know nothing bigotry you partake of.

WB,

The data wouldn't be skewed around our religion, it would be around our economic status. Hardly any wealthy kid would have been in VN, their dads had the ability to get them slots in the National Guard( they didn't go to VN ). Middle class had the ability to avoid service by attending college.

Not really. In 1968, there was a draft lottery, just so that potential inductees couldn't hide in college. I remember kids in my dorm watching the draft lottery on TV. If their birth dates came up early, they said goodbye to all their friends, and left for the service. It became harder for the wealthy to get deferments, and even those who signed up for the National Guard got shipped off to Vietnam.
