Colorado student quits high school choir over Islamic song praising ‘Allah’

This is what is happening everyday in our PC indoctrinated schools. Even children in choirs can’t escape the long arm of our we-are-one multicultural enthusiasts who keep shoving this lie down our throats. If this were my kid and he was in the choir where they chose to sing a song praising Allah, then I would have removed him from the choir and put in a complaint not only with the school, but with the regional education board. Who do these schools think they are? I can guarantee you 100% that Muslims would not sing a song in praise of God or Jesus. However, since James Harper quit the choir, he has received death threats and has now had to stop attending school. If this is the outcome that this teacher wanted then he got it. Not only has he exposed children to his PC indoctrination by CHOOSING to sing this song, but he has also managed to put a students life at risk by his actions. It’s all good and well to say that the kids have a choice whether they sing the song or not – but clearly that isn’t the case otherwise there wouldn’t be the uproar about his choice not to. Is a life really worth this little? And to infer that the song was chosen for it’s rhythms and other ‘qualities’, I say really? So, would this teacher allow a song praising Hitler killing the Jews if it had a good rhythm and other ‘qualities’? Nah, didn’t think so. Good on you James and good luck.

James Harper
A Colorado high school student says he quit the school choir after an Islamic song containing the lyric “there is no truth except Allah” made it into the repertoire.
James Harper, a senior at Grand Junction High School in Grand Junction, put his objection to singing “Zikr,” a song written by Indian composer A.R. Rahman, in an email to Mesa County School District 51 officials. When the school stood by choir director Marcia Wieland’s selection, Harper said, he quit.
“I don’t want to come across as a bigot or a racist, but I really don’t feel it is appropriate for students in a public high school to be singing an Islamic worship song,” Harper told KREX-TV. “This is worshipping another God, and even worshipping another prophet … I think there would be a lot of outrage if we made a Muslim choir say Jesus Christ is the only truth.”


But district spokesman Jeff Kirtland defended the decision to include the song.
“Choral music is often devoted to religious themes. … This is not a case where the school is endorsing or promoting any particular religion or other non-educational agenda. The song was chosen because its rhythms and other qualities would provide an opportunity to exhibit the musical talent and skills of the group in competition, not because of its religious message or lyrics,” Kirtland told FoxNews.com in an email while noting that the choir “is a voluntary, after-school activity.”
“Students are not required to participate, and receive no academic credit for doing so,” he said.
