Pledge of Allegiance skipped, Muslim poem read at Boston school on 9/11

Post  fshnski on Thu Sep 12, 2013 3:25 pm

The principal of Concord Carlisle High School in Boston issued an apology Wednesday after a Muslim poem was recited over the intercom on the 12th anniversary of 9/11, and the Pledge of Allegiance was not.

According to principal Peter Badalament, a “small number” of people were outraged at the poem, which was meant to promote “cross-cultural understanding,” Boston.com reported. Apparently, the Pledge of Allegiance was not read because of some confusion.

“Yesterday was the first Wednesday of the school year; we were unaware that our student Pledge reader had an internship commitment on this day,” Mr. Badalament said in the statement. “This was our responsibility to know. We humbly apologize that this oversight and communication gap occurred.”

Mohja Kahf’s “My Grandmother Washes Her Feet in the Sink of the Bathroom at Sears,” tells a granddaughter’s account of watching her grandmother adhere to the religious Muslim custom of washing her feet five times a day, Boston.com reported.

Can you imagine washing your face and hands before dinner in the same sink that someone just washed their dirty feet?

Can you imagine this happening on the 12 year anniversary of the terrorist attacks, by muslims, on the Twin Trade Towers, the Pentagon and Flight 93? Have we forgotten so quickly?

1) The above comment was directed to the controversy over a video of an unauthorized boat race.

2) Obama himself has said—in so many words

"We are no longer a Christian nation".
