Hypocrisy: WND Praises Christians for Forcing Schools To Accomodate Their Religion -- Then Bashes Muslims For Doing Same Thing
Topic: WorldNetDaily

We've detailed how WorldNetDaily freaks out when Muslims use the same religious discrimination laws its praises Christians for using. That hypocritical double standard has extended to school accomodations for religion.

Muslim-hater Leo Hohmann intones in a June 4 WND article:

High schools across America are being pressured to offer time off school, in-school prayer rooms, and special dietary demands by Muslim students observing the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

One campus in Brooklyn has agreed not to serve food at its prom until after sundown while another school in upstate New York is setting up prayer rooms to satisfy the demands of students who observe Ramadan.

Among the Muslim groups agitating for special privileges for Muslim students are the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Muslim Student Association and Sound Vision.

But the day before Hohmann's article was published, WND's Bob Unruh was praising a right-wing Christian group for forcing a school to make time for Christian instruction:

A public school district that dropped a plan allowing students to be excused from school for a short period for religious teachings now has reversed course.

WND reported last month the practice of “released time” is authorized in Michigan state law and has the endorsement of both the Michigan Supreme Court and the U.S. Supreme Court, but the district in Fremont, Michigan, was banning the activity.

Mlive.com reports, however, the district has changed direction.

[...]

WND reported the Alliance Defending Freedom had written a letter to the Fremont, Michigan, school district about the cancellation.

“Public schools shouldn’t defy the law simply to appease an ill-informed person’s complaint,” Timothy Denney, the author of the letter and one of nearly 3,200 attorneys allied with ADF, wrote at the time. “If a parent provides a permission slip, release of a student for religious instruction is mandatory, not optional.”

Hohmann went on to bring his fellow Muslim-haters to attack schools for accomodating Muslims:

The advancement of Islam in public schools is not going to slow down unless non-Muslim parents take an active stance against it, says anti-Shariah activist Pamela Geller.

“We need to hit this on all fronts. This should be a multi-pronged effort,” Geller told WND. “I hope the Trump administration will get involved, but we will never overcome this without energetic grassroots activism.”

University and college campuses have long been compromised and bought off with jihad millions. Now grade schools, junior and senior high schools are in the sights of the enemy. Common Core proselytizes for Islam, and the real history of jihadi wars, land appropriations, annihilations and enslavements is scrubbed from school textbooks. High schools offer senior electives called “Islam and the Modern World,” requiring students to purchase the notorious Islamic apologist John Esposito’s The Straight Path.

[...]

Robert Spencer, author of the Jihad Watch blog for the David Horowitz Freedom Center, agrees that short of greater parental engagement with school officials, the Islamization of American schools will march forward.

Meanwhile, WND is actively encouraging the Christianization of public schools. Just last month, Unruh was cheering that a substitute teacher "fired for giving a student a Bible" got his job back.

WND's hypocrisy would be appalling if it weren't so despressingly routine.
