Arkansas school cancels Muslim speaker visit for 9-11 after parents protest
SHERIDAN, AR -- On a solemn day generally reserved for remembrance, there's controversy in a central Arkansas school district.Wait a sec...nationality?!? This is religion we're talking about, not nationality! Does she realize she could undermine the point needed to be made by opponents of Islamofascism if she mistakes what the entity really is? Unless the news site warped her words, this is the disappointing part.
The Sheridan School District decided to cancel a Muslim speaker scheduled to address a class after a vigorous response in opposition from the community.
When Kathy Wallace caught wind of what the school district had planned, she wasn't too thrilled.
"We had been told that a Muslim was gonna come and speak to the children of the [Sheridan] Middle School," Wallace said.
It's something she says shouldn't be done on a particular day; a day generally reserved for remembering the terrorist attacks on our country.
"Since that nationality was responsible for 9/11," she explained her feelings. "We just didn't feel like it was right for him to come speak on 9/11 to the American children."
Other than that, I'm glad they stood up to the school, who'd do well to acknowledge their leftism, or even if they're conservative dhimmis.
