WHO: Tennessee Pastors Network and other concerned citizens
WHAT: Meeting regarding Islamic indoctrination in schools
WHERE: Christian Life Assembly, 117 N. Spring St., Sparta, Tenn.
WHEN: 6 p.m. CT Tuesday, Oct. 20
TNPN has been keeping close tabs on this pressing issue. Walker spoke at the White County School Board meeting last month about the textbooks, specifically a social studies book that contains 30-plus pages on Islam and the Muslim faith—with little mention of Christianity.
Walker, who graduated from the district, represented several state pastors who have serious reservations about the presence of Islamic education in public schools while lessons about Christianity are glossed over.
“Now is the time for school leaders, educators, parents, elected officials and the church community at large to take action and work to remove this Islamic invasion from our local schools via textbooks,” Walker said. “Schools should be held accountable, and this critical issue of soft-peddling Islam to impressionable students must not be ignored. The sweeping Islamic infiltration is being deeply embedded into the Bible Belt and it has penetrated our public schools in Tennessee. Our founding fathers would be appalled.”
