It's scary that people use this as a news place.

Ever notice how everyone else has a "hidden agenda" but these type of nutjobs don't?

Too bad the article didn't give more information - are other religions part of the program? How do you reconcil other actions that are deemed to have religious intent with this program that was deemed 'devoid of "any devotional or religious intent"'?

Instead, we get just enough so we can argue our regular FYM talking points.

You have to admit it is interesting that this level of religious instruction is permitted, when you have examples of instrumental musical pieces being banned because of their religious connection. A lack of clear principles, consistently applied, seems evident.

The word "jihad" is an Arabic word that means a personal struggle with sin. The interpretation of it as "holy war" is only used by those of the Wahhabist branch of Islam, which is officially the religion of the state of Saudi Arabia. It's not accepted in other Islamic country, but you can see how Osama bin Laden, a native of Saudi Arabia, came up with his poisonous ideas.

Great clarification

But I think it is a little generous to restrict its meaning to Saudi Arabia. The influence of the teachers of "holy war" have spread far and wide.

Fine WND may be a joke but so is all the media. I mean do you remember how they made Condi Rice look evil, by photoshopping her. When OJ was on Tme and Newsweek, same picture just they mad him look super evil. In media today they pretty much give their own opinion and one side to the story.

Yes, it's spread beyond Saudi Arabia. The holes who blew up the Shi'ite mosque in Iraq last year were Wahhabists, some were from Saudi Arabia but two of them were Iraqis. The thing about Arab culture is that it doesn't matter which country you're from, the ultimate loyalty is to your tribe. Also, the Deobandi school of Islam from India is the "spiritual" ancestry of the Taliban; they have always emphasized that terrible teaching about women, burkas and all of the rest. I don't know that the Deobandis were quite that bad about a jihad interpretation.

And what does this have to do with your thread. A little research, and less trolling and you may find a good thread.

I am not a Troll. You talk bad about WND on this article, but see no fault in other media outlets.

That's not what anyone is saying.

But you can't possibly compare WND to other media outlets.

Just look at the advertising.

-a book that speaks out against homosexuality, body piercing, sex ed, etc

-"Criminalizing Christianity"

-anti-islam literature

-war on Christmas bracelets

-pro life organizations

list goes on and on...

But no they have no bias or agenda.
