The fabric of American society was built on the freedom of religion.

It was for the purpose of being able to worship as they pleased the founding members of this great nation made the dangerous journey across the Atlantic and settled on the Eastern sea board.

And right now our nation is at a great cross roads when it comes to the free practice of religion.

Christians are persecuted for exercising their faith and violent religious groups are given more and more freedoms than could be considered appropriate.

One of the biggest agitating factors in the religious shift domestically has to do with Islamists who want to begin practicing their religion without restriction.

And this presents a huge problem for democracy and freedom.

So how is this happening?  Simple, Muslims have begun co-opting Americans into an Islamic state by infiltrating the schools.

And in the name of religious tolerance they’re attempting to make it so schools bow to their wishes and allow their future theocratic goals to set in.

Fortunately as you’re reading this there are still sensible educators who aren’t going to put up with this kind of intimidation.

In the state of New Jersey Muslims are furious because school board members wouldn’t acquiesce to their demands of closing school so their children could observe a religious holiday.

The Blaze writes:

The Jersey City Board of Education voted last week not to close schools for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, one of the most important holidays for Muslims.

School board members in New Jersey made their decision Thursday despite appeals from Muslim attendees who showed up to advocate that the board change the school schedule.

At one point, things became so heated that an official urged security to “take charge” of the situation. At least one person was seen on video being escorted from the meeting.

“We feel alienated from the Board of Education, we feel alienated from this system,” Omar Abouelkhair told WNBC-TV.

“We’re going to be the majority soon,” another said.

But board member Gerald Lyons suggested there is a perfectly valid reason for having school on Thursday, telling residents that closing school with just six days’ notice would cause “undue hardship” for 5,000 to 10,000 parents who might not have anywhere else to send their kids.

Lyons also reminded that students can still take the day off as an excused religious absence, meaning they would not face a penalty for doing so. Others noted that the school does not let out for the Jewish holidays Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

You can see the encounter below.

Keep in mind the children and the parents have the ability to miss school as an excused absence.

So what’s evident is this isn’t at all about getting off of school…it’s about making the system conform to them and their beliefs.

This is the slow and steady creep of Islamic growth here in the United States.

And that’s what liberals don’t understand (and if they do, are complicit in)…democracy and Islam cannot coexist.

What just happened here is a sign of things to come. There will be more battles like this, and unfortunately they will start to win even more.
