Lethal Education

With so many religious organizations
jockeying for position in Washington's
political jungle, I find using my tax dol-
lars to indoctrinate school children to a
belief that has become dubious on the
world stage highly suspicious.
Education can be just as lethal as a
loaded firearm. Camps such as Dar al
Islam in New Mexico appear, on the out-
side, to be an excellent idea; but after
reading your article "Tainted Teachings"
(Oct 27, page 42), a red flag must be put
on this organization immediately.
I would not have an issue if private
monies were supporting this religious
enclave. However, when grants from the
U.S. government are being awarded, then
I feel that I must say I wish my taxes to
be used in a different manner than tar-
geting children to be indoctrinated into
a cause that may-be hostile to my per-
sonal beliefs.
I have come to the understanding that
our educational community at times can
be much too radical with thinking that is
targeted toward subversive attitudes that
are meant to deflect any observant criti-
cism while blinding any who wish to be
argumentative toward their conclusions.
Our universities have the responsibili-
ty to open the door of intelligent dia-
logue from groups that disagree more
than agree on social topics that affect us
all, but when balance of these alternative
groups becoine too one-sided, as taxpay-
ers we must demand accountability and
bring balanced teaching back into the
classroom.
Our universities, if allowed to continue
their religious prejudices toward one
group over another, will undermine any
and all moral and ethical safeguards that
were placed into action to prevent such
one-sided favoritism of one spiritual
practice over another.

A Nice Touch

We would like to thank the Walled Lake
Downtown Development Authority for
including a Chanukah corner in its
annual Seasbn To Remember, which was
held Dec. 11 at the historic Stonecrest
Building.
It was fun to see children decorate
Chanukah cookies and playing with
dreidels. Thank you so much.
