Second Grade Students In Indiana Ordered To Sing "Allah Is God"

In an almost unbelievable story, second grade students at an elementary school in central Indiana were recently assigned to sing a song during a holiday performance declaring, "Allah is God." Fortunately the phrase was removed just before the performance after a national conservative group launched a protest. However, if there had been no national attention this program would have gone forward as it was. This is an incredibly chilling reminder of just how far the United States of America has fallen.

The principal of Lantern Road Elementary School in Fishers, Indiana said that they wanted to teach "inclusiveness" to the children by including references to many religions in the holiday music for the performance. The song the children were to sing included references to Christmas, Hanukkah, Ramadan, Las Posadas and Kwanzaa.

It must be noted, though, that no other deity other than Allah was specifically mentioned in the song.

The following is the portion of the song about Allah....

“Allah is God, we recall at dawn,
Praying ‘til night during Ramadan
At this joyful time we pray happiness for you,
Allah be with you all your life through.”

What in the world?

Second grade children in the United States were actually assigned to sing this?

Yes, unfortunately they were.

The portion of the song about Christmas was not "Christian" at all. In fact, it appears to cast doubt on the Biblical story....

“I didn’t know there was a little boy at the manger. What child is this?
I’m not sure if there was a little boy or not.
Then why did you paint one on your nativity window?
I just thought if there was a little boy, I’d like to know exactly what he (sic) say.”

The truth is that when this type of thing shows up in the heartland of the U.S. it is clear that something has gone horribly wrong in this country.

This is the kind of garbage that is being done in public schools throughout America.

The United States is a mess and things seem to be headed downhill faster than ever.

There is an agenda to turn this country into a Muslim nation, this is just one example of that unfolding. The fact is that we are a Christian nation based on Judeo/Christian beliefs established and confirmed by our forefathers. This idea of "inclusiveness" is tantamount to Oprah's church belief that there are many ways to heaven. In fact, in John 14:6 Jesus tells us that He is the only way to the Father. We need to be firm and unyielding in our belief.
