Pennsylvania school district holds staff training on Islam at Mosque

Liberals Have Gone Even More Insane

  • Looks like the crazy Libs who run schools have abolished the wall between Mosque and State.  But I suspect that the wall between Church and State still stands.

(EAG News)  -  Dozens of teachers and administrators in Pennsylvania’s Lebanon School District recently attended a taxpayer-funded in-service workshop at a local mosque to learn about Islam and Arabic culture.
About 50 staffers from the district attended an in-service workshop Monday led by former district Arabic translator Mohamed Omar, who “took time off from his new job as a case worker for the Department of Human Services in Philadelphia to share his knowledge of Islam with the staff, which included Superintendent Marianne Bartley and several other administrators,” the Lebanon Daily News reports.
The workshop started off at the high school where Omar discussed the differences and similarities between the education systems in the U.S. and Arab countries. Afterward, they headed to the nearby Lebanon Valley Mosque to delve into the Islamic religion and join a prayer service with the congregation, according to the news site. […]
At the mosque, teachers and administrators slipped off their shoes and mingled with parishioners clad in traditional Muslim attire. They talked about God, and the general concept in both Islam and Christianity that the All Mighty ultimately decides who heads to heaven or hell.
“We believe we will be judged by God,” Omar told teachers at the mosque. “The more good deeds we do, God will forgive us in the end. … You must work. Faith without work will not be accepted.”
Teachers also asked questions about Islam at the mosque, including how Islam’s call for five daily prayer sessions jibes with a demanding school schedule. Omar told attendees followers of Islam are simply required to intend to pray and must do so at their next available opportunity when forced to skip a session.
“You can pray anywhere,” he said, according to the Daily News. “You don’t have to go to the mosque. God is forgiving and he understands intent.”
