Sharia in School?

I am pressed for time today, but I'll post this link to a WND story, which tells the story of a legendary Michigan public high school coach who lost his job. The alleged reason? The Muslim principal is reported to be mad because a Muslim student came to faith in Christ through this Christian coach — at an off-campus event.

In the particular article, I found this line of special interest:

"We are getting a glimpse of what happens when Muslims who refuse to accept American values and principles gain political power in an American community," said Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, which is representing Marsazalek. "Failure to renew coach Marszalek's contract had nothing to do with wrestling and everything to do with religion."

That is a very, very serious issue and one that ought to be discussed loudly. For one thing, people who immigrate here take an oath of citizenship. Acceptance of American values and principles is not an option. For people who were born here, Muslim or not, they ought to know better.

Freedom is wonderful here in America, but it is not absolute. Freedom of speech doesn't mean you can yell "Fire" in a crowded theatre. Freedom of religion is not absolute, especially if the rights of other faiths are infringed. That is a constitutional principle, and citizens of the U.S. are to uphold the Constitution.

If Muslim groups are unwilling to do that -- and have as their eventual design to take over and put the country under Sharia -- I would say that it's time to begin deportations with a vengeance.
