From 2010 to 2014, I was an elected representative on the Franklin County (TN) School Board. We always had our run-ins about religion and public education, some of which I’ve written about before more extensively, but here’s an e-mail I was sent in 2011 that kinda captures the county’s attitude.
Received this morning and wanted to pass on!
To all parents and grandparents,
I was given some information yesterday that South and North Middle Schools have history books in our schools that clearly printed that Jews, Christians and Muslins(Islam is a word that is used a lot) worship the same God. After this, I did some research of my own, talked to [my daughter] as well and it is true!! We as parents should be outraged that our children are feeding feed this line of crap about the muslins. I encourage you to all talk to your kids about this and tell them that is NOT true!!!!!
*Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me
Break my heart for what breaks yours
Everything I am for your kingdoms cause
As I go from nothing to Eternity
