The push continues to force American public schools to comply with Sharia law, but at least one school is fighting back.
A Muslim mother is threatening to sue her local school board if they continue to offer pork products in their school lunches. The Tuscon school board outright denied the request, telling the mom to instead pack her daughter a lunch. (via Tuscon News Now).
“The district is not required to accommodate special dietary needs based solely on religious purposes,” read the districts statement, “The best way to ensure a meal meets any special dietary needs is to send a meal from home that you have prepared.”
However, this response has only angered the Muslim mother, who is turning to local news networks before initiating a lawsuit.
Nancy — the Muslim mother — provided a doctor’s note explaining that her second-grade daughter was Muslim and could not eat any pork products.
The Amphitheater Unified School District said they would avoid serving the student pork even though they are not required to accommodate religiously-motivated diets.
The mother was quiet, until her daughter was served a bacon cheeseburger in December. Horrified, the mother complained to the principal who, again, reminded Nancy that if she wanted to avoid pork she would need to pack a lunch.
Instead of taking responsibility, the Muslim mother decided to let it slide — that is, until last week, when her daughter was sent home with a granola bar containing gelatin, a pork byproduct.
Nancy was furious and immediately turned to the local press to chastise the school. She told Tuscon News Now that packing a lunch was not a solution to the problem. “I want my religion to matter to you guys. My daughter shouldn’t have to go to school and be fearful of what’s she’s eating,” she said.
“We told them we could send [a lunch] – but at that same time she doesn’t want to have to be that different child,” continued the Muslim mother, making her intentions clear. It is not enough for her child to avoid pork, but the entire school needs to accommodate her religion so her daughter does not feel excluded.
Muslim immigrants feel entitled to have their religious beliefs instilled into law and to receive special protections instead of assimilating. That’s just not right.
If Nancy wants her daughter to abstain from pork, she can either pack a lunch or move to a country that follows Sharia law. End of story.
