Muslim Poem Replaces Pledge Of Allegiance at School
(Concord, Massachusetts) To remember the tragedies of 9/11, one school read a Muslim poem about foot-washing over the public address system, not the Pledge of Allegiance.
Concord Carlisle High School in Concord, Massachusetts is the site of this travesty; Concord, the site of the first military engagements of the American Revolution.Principal Badalament said he wanted to promote cross-cultural understanding.
On the twelfth anniversary of 9/11 Principal Peter Badalament allowed the reading of a Muslim foot washing poem about a Muslim woman washing her feet at a Sears Department Store prior to engaging in her Muslim prayers over the Pledge of Allegiance.
Obviously, Principal Badalament is more enlightened than your friendly blogger since I fail to see any substantive correlation between the murders of 3,000 people and Muslim foot-washing. In fact, I contend that Principal Badalament's "cross-cultural" stunt was a stinging insult to the memory of the victims of 9/11.
