Mother Suing New Jersey School for “trying to make her kid Muslim,” Judge Accepts Case

Published

on

A New Jersey mother is suing her son’s school after she said her child was forced to watch Islamic conversion videos in school.

Libby Hilsenrath filed the lawsuit in January 2018 on behalf of her 12-year-old son against the Chatham School District and Board of Education, prompting the school district to file a motion to have the case dismissed. However, federal Judge Kevin McNulty said that he will not dismiss the case, adding that it must be decided in court. Hilsenrath’s lawsuit asks for declaratory and injunctive relief, damages, and legal fees.

The school superintendent Michael LaSusa, assistant superintendent Karen Chase, Chatham middle school principal Jill Gihorski, Social Studies supervisor Steven Maher, and Social Studies teachers Megan Keown and Christine Jakowski have also been named in the lawsuit which was filed as a civil rights complaint.

“There will be opportunity enough to consider the substantive issues when evidence has been developed in discovery and the facts have been developed,” said Judge McNulty.

According to Hilsenrath, the Chatham middle school gave her son a take home social studies assignment that included two videos students were told to watch. One of the videos was an “Intro to Islam” video the other was a “Five Pillars of Islam” video, both of which Hilsenrath argues was a form of Islamic indoctrination that her son was instructed to watch without supervision.

Within the first minute of “Intro to Islam” video, Islam is falsely proclaimed to be “based on peace”, a clear indication that the video Hilsenrath’s son and the other students were forced to watch is simply a form of propaganda. In the Quran, it says “do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies,” which is far from peaceful or tolerant.

The middle school students were also required to complete a fill-in-the-blank version of “shahada”, otherwise known as the Islamic conversion prayer. The assignment contained a link to a website that explained “the ease with which they (students) could convert to become Muslim”. The lawsuit also argues that Judaism and Christianity were not taught to the students.

Hilsenrath says she first complained about the Islamic school lessons to the school board in February of 2017, and even appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show on February 20, 2017 to address her concerns. However, Chatham middle school continued to defend the curriculum and argued that the lesson plan and Islamic conversion assignments were intended to “help students develop understandings of the themselves, others, and the world around them.”

Hilsenrath and her son are being represented by Michael Hrycak, an attorney who is affiliated with the Thomas More Law Center, a national nonprofit conservative Christian law firm.

Lesbian Activist Trashes Trans Fad: ‘Biology is Not a Social Construct’

Published

on

Some of the letters in the LGBT community are not feeling so communal if a prominent lesbian activist and Army Staff Sergeant is to be believed.

“I have spent every day of my life since that time advocating for the marginalized and oppressed, especially sexual minorities,” wrote Miriam Ben-Shalom in The Federalist. “I’ve organized rallies, shown up and stood up wherever injustice was allowed to flourish. I’ve twice chained myself to the White House fence and engaged in non-violent civil disobedience to protest the ban on LGB people in the military. I’ve risked jail time and criminal charges on behalf of my brothers and sisters in the LGB community.”

Ben-Shalom was originally honorably discharged from the Army for homosexuality, but was the first person re-instated after such a discharge in 1988, which she describes as one of the proudest moments of her life.

But things aren’t completely hunky-dory for the lesbian activist right now. Though she believes that transgender people deserve respect and ought not to be discriminated against, it is clear that Ben-Shalom thinks the movement has gone too far.

“[I] ought not to be expected to believe that by some magic and lots of surgeries and chemicals that a man can be a woman and a woman a man,” she wrote. “I, and all woman and children, should not have to put up with the shenanigans of those who insist that biology is ‘a social construct’ but gender ‘is innate in a person’ when the exact opposite is true.”

Ironically, Ben-Shalom’s views on the subject are so controversial that she was forced to publish her op-ed in the socially conservative Federalist. 

She also knocked the growing trend of parents forcing transgenderism on their children.

“Children should not be experimented upon by infusing them with puberty blockers to keep them from growing up,” she said. “Children should not be operated upon and have body parts removed because they ‘feel’ they are something other than what they are, should not be subjected to a lifetime of ill health because of Big Pharma’s chemicals.”

Ben-Shalom said that lesbian women should not be accused of “transphobia” for refusing to sleep with biological males who “identify” as transgender females, and that the law should not protect transgender females who want to use men’s bathrooms and locker rooms.

“Do you understand now why this is not about trans humans being discriminated against, but is about something much more horrible and revolting: the chemical sterilization of children, the denial of basic human rights to women and children, and the erasure of women? Do you still wonder why we do not want the law to allow such people in our spaces?”
