In addition to being a psychotic and severely flawed philosophy built on lies and misinformation, liberalism stands for things that contradict reality and human experience. In one way or another, they reject virtually everything that made this country great. Through their redistributive policies and open support for the limitless regulation of the private sector, liberals reject free market capitalism. Through their concerted effort to sabotage and disintegrate existing immigration laws, liberals reject the rule of law. Through their hostile objection to conservative speech, their never ending quest to disarm the citizenry, and their objection to states rights in case after case, the liberals reject the Constitution.
I could go on and on for days, but you get the point. It is worth noting, though, that one of the things liberals reject most passionately also happens to be a foundational tenet of America – the religion of Christianity. Left-wing talk show hosts mock Christians every chance they get. College professors have used their authority to promote anti-Christian bias in the classroom. Barack Obama seldom said anything about the Christians that were being beheaded in the Middle East at the hands of radical Islam. But despite all of this, what is perhaps most shocking of all is the simultaneous promotion of other religions in Washington DC, in the media, and yes, in academia.

At Chatham Middle School in New Jersey, some teachers are now not only teaching about Islam as part of the curriculum but flat out promoting it.
Parents were outraged when their children were routinely coming home with homework and lengthy assignments about Islam. “In the Middle East and North Africa unit of the class students are taught about the five pillars of Islam in great detail,” parent Libby Hilsenrath told the board. “There are two videos on it, a 20-page PowerPoint presentation, class work, homework, and testing.” She added that “in this unit, there is no mention of any other religion or teaching of it.” (RELATED: Read about how public schools are the prison of indoctrination for young people).
Hilsenrath explained to the board that she objected to the amount of emphasis being put on the Islamic faith, and even cited a homework assignment that required students to memorize and write the Islamic conversion prayer.
Both Hilsenrath and another outraged parent, Nancy Gayer, appeared on the Fox News Channel to speak with Tucker Carlson about the issue.
“I think it crosses the line because it teaches one religion and not all others,” Hilsenrath said in the interview. “It’s a world culture and geography course and no other religion is taught. And to me, that’s not education, because in order to educate you need to teach all.”
She went on to point out the hypocrisy of the situation, saying that most teachers and other parents wouldn’t be okay if a public school openly endorsed Jesus Christ and Christianity.
Nancy Geyer then shared a brief anecdote about her son, where religious bias was once again on display. “I actually had an experience about three years ago,” Geyer explained. “My son put together a fundraiser and it was a video production, and in the fundraiser, in the video production, he had a small quote [from] the Bible and they… pulled him aside and told him ‘this belongs in Sunday School.’”
There is a very cynical, flawed reason as to why the liberals are constantly showing bias towards Islam over Christianity. It is the same reason why they show bias towards illegal aliens over the American people, the Palestinians over Israel, and blacks over whites — to the left, any person or group of people that is a minority is automatically a victim, and therefore automatically more virtuous. But of course, as we all know, the difference between right and wrong and good versus evil has nothing to do with “majority versus minority.” Virtue, ethics and morality are entirely separate concepts.
Liberalism is flawed in so many ways, and the problem is that when it’s given a platform to enact change, the results are always extremely destructive to our culture, our society, and our people.
