Debunking the Rick Perry “Pro-Sharia” School Curriculum Myth

Please read the whole column at CounterContempt. Note that the whole fuss began at lefty Salon.com as a (successful) attempt to bring out criticism of Governor Perry and to get inflamed people to make inflammatory remarks about Islam.

Much of the curriculum centers on very dry materials, presented with no editorializing – historical timelines, glossaries, the basic tenets of Islam (presented without either endorsement and praise, or denunciation and criticism), etc. Of interest to us, however, is the lesson plan that deals with Islam and the West, past and present. This is the lesson plan that mentions Sharia, al-Qaeda, Israel, Hamas, etc.

The lesson plan was written by Ronald Wiltse. Mr. Wiltse is a retired history teacher in San Antonio. He graduated from Pepperdine University in 1966, and received his MA from Middlebury College in 1982. For several decades, he taught world history at Edison High School, in San Antonio.

He is a Christian, and an ardent and vocal supporter of Israel.

  1. The fact of the matter is Sharia law is being practiced in Texas inplace of our Constitution. AND we don’t need to say anything inflammatory about Islam/Muslim as we’ve all done our homework and know exactly who they are;

    Islam, peaceful Islam, is about destruction of all Kafir civilization http://bit.ly/nVoSOo

    • I don’t agree that upholding a contract under Texas law is “practicing Sharia law.” Adults who sign contracts – even contracts agreeing to arbitration services from a group of Islamic arbitrators – must follow the rule of law.

      It’s one of the conundrums of living in a free society that some adults will make choices we consider unwise – or dumb. As long as no one is being killed, we have to avoid imposing our will – we could be infringing on their liberty just as much as Sharia arbitrators.

      The incestuous marriages can be our concern, however. Society has a responsibility to the unborn, we can’t allow possible genetic defects.
