Muslim Group Invited to Proselytize in Public School

Where are those folks from the Freedom From Religion Foundation?

“After a petition was sent around by activists, asking the school district to reduce ‘racism,’” William Krumholz reports in Alphanews, “the district brought in a group run by Dr. Muhammad Khalifa to conduct an ‘equity survey.’”  This took place in the Eastern Carver County School District in the city of Chaska, Minnesota, with a population of approximately 25,000.

Dr. Muhammad Khalifa is Associate Professor of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development at the University of Minnesota. He earned his Ph.D. in “educational administration” at Michigan State University. Khalifa’s group, Adjusted Equity Solutions, and the affiliated Culturally Responsive School Leadership Institute, Krumholz wrote, “sells its services, which focus on bias recognition education and training, to schools.” The Eastern Carver district and superintendent Clint Christopher, “awarded Khalifa’s AES $52,250 over a two-year period to conduct the equity survey and provide certain follow-up services.”

Dr. Khalifa’s “Islamophobia and Christian Privilege,” materials urge the district to “recognize that Islamophobia is one of the most widespread, rapidly growing, and tolerated types of oppression in school and society today.” This requires the school to “identify discourses and practices of Christian privilege and White privilege” and Christian privilege “is not only having major Christian holidays and Sundays off, and Christian trappings in school.”

The materials urge the district to “discuss with your staff how you have been implicit – directly or indirectly – in Islamophobic practices,” and “complete annual equity audits.” Dr. Khalifa  wants “speak outs” for Muslim students, and the protection of “Muslim female dress.” The district is also to “celebrate contemporary Muslim accomplishments and personalities, Kunta Kinte, Muhammad Ali, Keith Ellison, Yusef Lateef, John Coltrane, Malcolm X, Mahershali Ali, etc.”

As Dr. Khalifa’s materials explain, “Islam is not a religion in the sense that Western Europeans separated faith from other aspects of life.” Dr. Muhamad wants the district to “support causes connected to the Muslim community,” and “use staff, school space, student activities, and even financial resources – to advocate for causes important to student inclusion and belongingness.”

Actually, this looks more like yet another shakedown group.

    Freedom from religion foundation is really the “hate Christianity organization”.

    Liberal hate is very specific.

  2. Le Roi du Nord

    Really, they are christian specific?  Is that in their bylaws, or are you making that up?

  3. Kevin Scheunemann


    They don’t seem to go after Muslim oriented practices in schools with the same hatred zeal they do against Christians.

    Let me refer you to hundreds of instances of the Freedom from Religion Foundations hateful handiwork:

    I want to see the same level of liberal passion toward Muslims.

  4. jjf

    Gee, guys, it’s in their FAQ. 


  5. Kevin Scheunemann


    That is a pile of bunk.

    Fox News reports on 10 instances of Muslim infiltration into public square a month…and they have one, maybe 2 examples where they acted on that FAQ.

    The dirty secret is: their members are all liberals who hate Christians, and will do a lot to avoid complaining about Muslims because they are part of the sick and twisted intersectional victim heirarchy liberals live by.

    Did you also read my link? It has hundreds of cases where FFRF has cost people money needlessly and attacked their Christian faith with barely an apology.

    FFRF is a vile leftist, anti-Christian, hate group!

  6. Mar

    jjf, I’m glad you believe propaganda and don’t actually use your own mind to think.
    Typical liberal.

  7. Pat


    Once you reference, “Fox News”, you’ve lost the debate. To quote Mar, “I’m glad you believe propaganda and don’t actually use your own mind to think.”

  8. dad29

    Once you reference, “Fox News”, you’ve lost the debate.

    An adult might suggest that <b>facts</b> matter, not the source of the material.  But go ahead, Pat, do it your way.

  9. jjf

    So you’re saying you’d expect the ratio of Christian to Muslim violations to be similar to the proportion of their populations in the USA?

    So rough 240 million to 3.5 million, or 68 times as many Christians doing something in violation of the First Amendment?

    Given their privilege and established settings, I’d say the Christians would be far more comfortable carrying out a violation, so it’s probably more than 68 to 1.

    Or here’s another explanation of FFRF and Muslims.

  10. Pat

    Strike a nerve, Dud?

  11. jjf

    Of course, as their FAQ says, FFRF acts on reports from its members.  If you joined FFRF and reported Muslim violations, they’d probably tell you if they’d heard about them, and what they were doing about them.  Most of the time FFRF just sends a letter at first.  After all, there may be other people who’ve complained about the violation apart from doing it through FFRF.  Certainly if Fox News is reporting it, it’ll generate public inquiry.  The question you might want to ask yourself is why doesn’t Fox News report on violations of Christians mucking around?

  12. Kevin Scheunemann


    I feel the same way about CNN, MSNBC, ny times NPR, and other left wing rags.

    As soon as you quote them, you have lost any semblance of reality.

    Fox is the only fair and balanced news source not beholden to liberal evil.

  13. Kevin Scheunemann


    You are just trying to justify the anti- Christian hate group.

    Awful. Just awful.

  14. Le Roi du Nord

    “Freedom from religion foundation is really the “hate Christianity organization”.

    “Liberal hate is very specific”.

    Looks like you made that all up.  Isn’t christianity anti-lying?

  15. MHMaley

    FFRF are equal opportunity opponents of any Religion in public places and especially public schools .

    They don’t discriminate between a Jesus , Mohammed or any of the other 10,000+ Gods
    Man has invented over the Centuries .

  16. Kevin Scheunemann


    That is hilarious.

    FFRF allows the favored liberal religions to florish in public square: Global warming. Evolution. Transgenderism. Islam. Liberalism.

    Only Christianity tends to be attacked because their ranks are full of anti- Christian bigots.

  17. Le Roi du Nord

    “FFRF allows the favored liberal religions to florish in public square: Global warming. Evolution. Transgenderism. Islam. Liberalism.”

    Since global warming, evolution, transgenderism, and liberalism aren’t religions that is an outright lie.

  18. jjf

    Plenty of Christians are liberals, of course.  Often the ones working the soup kitchens and the food banks and places like Habitat for Humanity.  Ask Dad29 about Dorothy Day.

  19. Kevin Scheunemann


    They all have there own belief systems. Their own cosmology. Their own determination of good and evil. The disciples encourage strict adherence and will criticize heretics.

    Be honest about your religions.

    Why are you ashamed of your religions?

  20. Kevin Scheunemann


    Good works as a joyful thank you for salvation in Christ is awesome.

    It is when “liberal Christians” embrace open baby killing and open sexual immorality advocacy is where I have serious concern for their soul. Denying seriousness of sin, by advocating open sin, rejects the Gospel.

  21. jjf

    Pivot again, see if it helps.  No one was talking about abortion or SEX.

  22. Kevin Scheunemann

    That is usually what we are talking about when you say “liberal Christian”.

  23. Mar

    There is my such thing as a liberal Christian, if you break it down to the basis, especially in the US. And especially liberal politicians. Nancy Pelosi says she is a Christian, but she is a CINO, Christian In Name Only. Christians who support abortion, gay marriage, breaking man’s laws, etc. No one is perfect, but it seems like liberals are very far from perfect.

  24. Le Roi du Nord


    No cosmology, belief system, or religion involved.  You made that all up because you can’t or won’t understand things that are in conflict with your ideology.   Why must you be so dishonest with yourself?

  25. jjf

    Whew, it must be hard on the neck .  One comment he’s complaining about hard-line doctrinaire cults, in the next message he’s declaring who the Real Heretics are, and that he’s not.

  26. Kevin Scheunemann


    Cults that are wrong, like GW, evolution, and other liberalism are awful.

  27. Le Roi du Nord

    For starters, GW/CC and evolution aren’t cults.  Secondly, both are based on sound science, not belief.  And thirdly, you have done nothing to prove otherwise.

  28. dad29

    The earth warms, the earth cools.  THAT is “sound science.”  There is delusion behind “evolution,” but as Kevin tries to tell you, delusion is your religion.

  29. Le Roi du Nord

    Sorry dud, but you swung and missed.

  30. Kevin Scheunemann


    Denounced another heretic I see.

    Your evangelism for these man made religions is impressive.

  31. Le Roi du Nord

    Sorry k, but since there is no religion involved, heresy doesn’t apply here.  Ditto evangelism. But then you probably didn’t know the definitions anyway.

  32. Kevin Scheunemann


    You are passionate in you warming worship.

    Don’t be so modest.

  33. Le Roi du Nord


    Modesty is my middle name.  So is honesty.  You should try it sometime  instead of religion.

  34. Kevin Scheunemann


    Honesty would be that thing you trample over while you denounce the global warming heretics.

    Try to be compassionate to poor and middle class in your zeal to send us back to stone ages in your religion.

  35. Le Roi du Nord

    GW/CC is already trampling poor folks in low lying coastal areas around the world.  And you ignore their plight.  Not very christian of you.

  36. jjf

    Dad29, I can’t wait to hear your explanation as to why evolution is wrong.

  37. Kevin Scheunemann


    Prove it.

  38. Le Roi du Nord


    You made the claim about poor folks.  Maybe you could prove your claim first?

    And I can’t prove any of your religious concepts pertaining to GW/CC because there aren’t any.  That is all your ill-informed nonsense.

  39. Kevin Scheunemann


    Can’t do it.


    If you gaze outside your zealotry for a minute. Cheap fossil fuels save lives! Cheap, abundant energy keeps people warm and fed! Making energy more expensive through your religious zealotry kills people.

    Now prove your claim.

    Or are you a double standard hypocrite?

  40. Kevin Scheunemann

    You have only proved you misconstrued the data.

  41. jjf


  42. Kevin Scheunemann


    Listen and find out.

  43. Le Roi du Nord


    I read every bio I could find on shapiro, he is a failed lawyer.  My dog has more credibility the him on any topic involving common sense or truthfulness.  Isn’t lying a major infraction in your so-called religion?

  44. Kevin Scheunemann


    Shapiro is not a failed lawyer.

    He graduated with high honors from Ivy league law school.

    He chose to change professions because he disliked being a lawyer

    Did you listen…?

    You didn’t because it destroyed the “data” you presented.

  45. jjf

    Dad29;  The Discovery Institute?  Seriously?  I had a much higher opinion of your mind before you posted that.
