Marine Dad Banned From School Over Five Pillars Of Islam Essay Protest

A Marine dad was banned from school over a “Five Pillars of Islam” essay assignment at La Plata High School in Maryland. Marine dad, Kevin Wood, an Iraq war veteran, said his daughter’s class was issued a mandatory assignment regarding the Islam religion. When he asked for an alternate homework assignment not related to the Muslim religion, he was reportedly banned from going to his daughter’s school ever again.

The La Plata High School juniors were told to write a three-page essay about the five pillars of Islam, detailing the beliefs and practices of the religion as well as being instructed to include information about the prophet Mohammed and Mecca.

The Marine Corps veteran said, “I don’t agree with it. You can’t study God or Christianity in school. You’ve got atheists suing schools for saying ‘God’ in the pledge and not being able to say prayers before football games, but we can force-feed our kids Islam.”

The Marine dad said when he discussed the Islamic essay with school officials in Maryland the La Plata High School administrators defended the five pillars essay and refused to permit his daughter to complete an assignment on a different topic.
