Non-Muslims respond brilliantly to the American Christian mother who wanted to ban Islamic teachings in schools

Michelle Edmisten is angry. The Christian mother from Tennessee is upset that her daughter learned basic facts about the Islamic faith in her seventh grade social studies class.

Specifically, the class was expected to know that Islam’s holy book is called the Quran, and that there are five pillars of Islam that include performing ritual prayers and a pilgrimage to Mecca. Michelle said:

“It is time as parents, teachers and administrators we stand up and take back our families, our schools and our country.”

Such Islamophobic rhetoric is rising, but as much as we see this ugly side, there are people, non-Muslims, who are voicing out against the hate-speech.

Samantha Smith Huang, a Christian, has no problem about her son learning about Islamic beliefs:
