Creeping Sharia in the US: Muslims demand a teacher of ‘World Affairs’ class be fired for showing Muhammad cartoons the day after Charlie Hebdo massacre

If you are a student of ‘World Affairs’, you ought to expect that events that ‘shake the world’ – as the Charlie Hebdo massacre did – will be covered in class.  Anything else would be an abdication of an educator’s responsibilities.

But, if you do live up to your responsibilities, you just might find yourself the subject of protest by Muslims, demanding your resignation or firing:

‘The teacher, Deepa Bhandaru, recently earned her Ph.D from the UW Political Science department, and works for ReWA teaching a free class on world affairs for youth, where she showed the cartoons during a lesson on free speech and religious pluralism.

Like Yessef, many at the protest said they’d lived in the U.S. for decades and emphasized that they embraced American values of freedom of speech and religion. But more than one participant said they felt that showing the cartoons to youth had crossed a line, and insisted that they would only be satisfied if Bhandaru were fired.’

Sad, so sad…

So much sadder since it is so predictable…

We must stop the creeping blasphemy ban in its tracks, or we stand to loose our freedom of – and from – religion!!!
