Texas State Board of Education to consider pro-Islam anti-Christian stance of state texbooks

You're forbidden to state even the things which the Koran says about Islam ~ but are free to use critical language on Christianity. There is political Islamic lobbying ~ likely Saudi funded ~ that is hard at work to see that Islam is painted in an unrealistic picture.

AUSTIN, Texas — The State Board of Education next week is expected to consider what students should learn about Islam.

The Dallas Morning News reported Wednesday that the board will consider a resolution warning publishers not to push a pro-Islamic, anti-Christian viewpoint in world history textbooks.

Members of the board's social conservative bloc have asked for the resolution. A preliminary draft says "diverse reviewers have repeatedly documented gross pro-Islamic, anti-Christian distortions in social studies texts" across the U.S.

A spokeswoman for a religious freedom group, the Texas Freedom Network, says no textbooks cited by resolution sponsors are being used in Texas. Kathy Miller says current books offer a balanced treatment of the world's religions.
