Wat is de kwestie?
Een aantal parochiale scholen en privé Christelijke scholen hebben samen een atletiek associatie. Kunnen ze lekker onderling tegen elkaar spelen .
En dan krijgen ze opeens aanvragen van islamitische scholen om mee te doen. En de Christelijke achterban van de associatie gelooft dat Mohammedanen duivelaanbidders zijn. Dus het antwoord is "nee'.
Maar ze stellen aan die scholen wel een stel vragen ter beantwoording om legale grond te hebben om te weigeren (tja, het is de USA, The Land of Litigation).
- ¶ “Historically, there is nothing in the Koran that fully embraces Christianity or Judaism in the way a Christian and/or a Jew understands his religion. Why, then, are you interested in joining an association whose basic beliefs your religion condemns?”
¶ “It is our understanding that the Koran tells you not to mix with (and even eliminate) the infidels. Christians and Jews fall into that category. Why do you wish to join an organization whose membership is in disagreement with your religious beliefs?”
¶ “How does your school address certain Christian concepts? (i.e. celebrating Christmas)”

Onder de leden is gevraagd wat ze van deelname door Islamieten vinden.
Tapps also surveyed its member schools about the inclusion of Muslim schools and found that 63 percent of the 83 respondents opposed their membership. Ten schools said they would leave Tapps if the Islamic schools were allowed. Keystone School, a multi-denominational private school in San Antonio, was the only school that threatened to leave Tapps if Iman Academy was denied membership, but has since decided to stay to try to “effect change in the situation.”
The Council on American-Islamic Relations has called on Tapps to change its policy, while state Sen. Randy Ellis (D) is considering taking legislative action to prevent similar situations in the future.
