Teachers and Staff from the Lebanon School District attended a workshop at the Lebanon Valley Mosque, according to stories by the Lebanon Daily News and Reading Eagle.  According to those news reports the teachers and staff “learned about the practices of Islam”, “watched an afternoon Muslim prayer service and were treated to lunch of Moroccan cuisine.”  Now this is not the first time for this in Lebanon County.  There have been other reports of School District visits to area Mosques.  All of these workshops and visits were conducted on THE TAXPAYER’S DIME!  Justifying the visit (and taxpayer expense) was the Superintendent who claimed that the workshops were important due to a growing Muslim population!  We have reports that Muslim Prayer Rooms have been provided in Lebanon County Schools.  Now the question comes screaming out at us is—WHY THE DOUBLE STANDARD?  The U. S. courts have ruled for decades that Christian prayers in school settings is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!  Then how do they get away with religious prayer rooms in school for Muslims and how can they legally spend tax dollars for teachers to attend services/workshops in Muslim Mosques?  A clear legal double standard!

In an article written by former Allentown teacher/now reporter for the Reading Eagle, Bill Uhrich on Sunday, June 21, 2015, Uhrich makes some typical progressive out of touch statements.  Let us expound on this.

In what Uhrich calls an incomprehensible response by former State Representative Sam Roher, who was writing on behalf of the “American Pastors network,” Roher said the following;

While noting the workshops came at taxpayer expense, “The seminar might seem like a harmless learning experience to the casual onlooker, but events like these underscore the increasing threat to our constitutional freedoms represented by the insidious infiltration of Islam into America’s schools and communities.”

Roher goes on to say “ Slowly but surely, Islamic ideology is creeping stealthily into classrooms and local governments across America.  What may appear to be an altruistic and innocent isolated incident is in reality part of an aggressive and dangerous strategy to undercut the biblically based and constitutionally guaranteed freedoms in this nation.”

Bill Uhrich sarcastically states the following;  “Roher would have us believe that the First Amendment’s guaranteed free exercise of religion is undercut because Muslims are freely exercising their religion in Lebanon County?”  Such a statement by Uhrich demonstrates the blindness of today’s Progressive Movement.  A blindness that does not recognize the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood has already infiltrated our Military and our President has welcomed Muslim advisors into the Whitehouse inner circle!  How can we forget the deadly mayhem of Cornel Hassan at Fort Hood?  The seeds of infiltration have already been planted here in the U.S.  We have seen the affects of Shiria Law being advocated here and overseas.  The biggest problem is that Christians, Jews and others here in America respect each other’s right to religious freedom.  However, Muslims consider other religions as heresy and subject those practicing those religions to penalties ranging from extra taxes to confiscation and execution.  To the astute citizen all one has to do is watch and remember the events being carried out throughout the Middle East and Europe.  France now has areas in some of their cities where Shiria Law prevails and the Government is not welcome.   How about this fact, when the Muslim Brotherhood took over in Egypt (with the help of Obama) there was a concerted campaign to execute Christians.  How many Christian heads need to be cut off before our Progressives understand that Islam, as practiced by many, is not compatible with our Constitutional Rights and the “founding principles” of our nation?

We see Sam Roher’s  and the American Pastors Network comments as being right on point.  The day of reckoning is near, we hope and pray that internal politics will not cloud the thinking of our people  because the Constitutional Rights of our citizens and our nation’s survival is at stake!
