Through their appreciation, they begin to become more understanding and tolerant of those who live and pray differently than we do.
According to the MDJ's Hannah Morgan, "At Thursday night's school board meeting, (the father) brought the book and showed the board members the religious symbols, including a picture of the Quran, which he said disturbed him."
"It's an indoctrination of Muslim culture," the father of a McDowell Elementary School pupil told the Cobb County Board of Education recently. His wife purchased the book for his kindergarten daughter at the Scholastic Book Fair held at the school.

So when they open a picture book called "Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns," kids learn about Muslim customs as told by a child living in an Islamic country.
What is really immature of people like you, Foley and even a legitimate observer like Oliver Halle, is trying to use atrocities committed by Christians, (not in the name of Christianity, just by Christians)in the past to excuse what the Muslim extremists are doing on a regular basis, right now. That is not only immature, it is shallow and ignorant. Maybe even, desparate? Come back when you have something intelligent to say.
Nobody said blowing up children is fine with me. You are the one who is defending the people who actually do that on an ongoing basis.
I guess it's never too early to start inculcating intolerance, even if the child is a kindergartener. The father also claimed no other religions Nike Air Max 95 White And Blue Spark were represented at the book fair, but PTA President Abi Nesmith said books on Christianity and Judaism were on sale.

"I know they are trying to do a good thing, this just struck me as wrong," the father added. "That culture there doesn't seem to have anything good coming out of it."
The Klan is almost non existent. When was the last time the Klan committed a mass murder? The Aryan nation has not been connected with any violcne since 1984. What was the date of the last violence committed by Muslim extremists, in the name of Allah? Yesterday? The day before? Probably tomorrow?
Actually, "that culture there" has contributed major advancements in mathematics, astronomy, medicine, commerce, music, art, literature and architecture.
