Public schools teach false religion rather than secularism

Today in a world cultures social studies class at my public high school, my teacher lied. He said in the beginning of class that when we learn about the religions of the world, we examine them from a historical perspective rather than a religious perspective.

Alright, I’m sort of okay with that. I don’t want him indoctrinating everyone else with Satanist doctrine. It would be better if it were explicitly Christian, but as long as public school remains “legal” they must abide by the first amendment.

But instead of keeping what he taught us completely secular, he later said that Jews, Muslims, and Christians all worship the same God, only calling Him by different names. He made no effort to make it clear that this was merely his personal opinion; he stated it as fact, and he even went on to say that a common misconception among religious folk is that they think that they worship different gods.

He’s loony. If he thinks he is the prophet of the “absolute truth” (of liberalism), maybe he should take the time to actually learn about the religions. In Christianity, there is only one faith (Ephesians 4:1-6), Jews rejected God the Father when they rejected His Son, and Muslims have a god (demon) completely different from the Christian God. The God of the Bible teaches evangelism, spreading the Gospel, and warning unbelievers. The Qur’an teaches you warning unbelievers is pointless; in other words, it teaches “tolerance”:

As for the Disbelievers, Whether thou warn them or thou warn them not it is all one for them; they believe not. Allah hath sealed their hearing and their hearts, and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be an awful doom. (Qur’an 2:6-7)

His lies about God and religion were met with no rebellion by the class. There are, supposedly, several Christians in the class, but I guess they were uneducated or even unbelieving.
