The fellow who appears to be the front-runner in the race to become the next superintendent of Nebraska’s largest school district, the Omaha Public Schools, may or may not be a Muslim. He has a name that is iconic among followers of that religion: Khalid Mumin.
“Khalid” means “immortal” and brings up the famous Arab general, Khalid Ibn Al-Walid, a companion of the original prophet of Islam, Muhammad. He is said to have won around 100 battles and duels in the early going of Islamic jihad. In one battle, the fighting was so intense that he broke nine swords, earning him the title “The Sword of Allah.”
The Omaha superintendent candidate’s last name, “Mumin,” means “believer” in Arabic — someone who has completely submitted to the Will of Allah as expressed in the Qur’an — a super pure, super committed Muslim.
It’s probably not nice or even legal to ask Mr. Mumin about his faith before he gets this job, but at any rate, his name certainly suggests that Islam is involved.
And that brings up a few yikes:
- Devout Muslims are as G-rated when it comes to school-based sex ed as devout Christians are. If he is Muslim and gets the job, is it possible we might get rid of the awful X-rated content in the OPS sex ed sexorama? I mean . . . whatever it takes. Sheesh.
- Devout Muslims are as modest in their dress code as devout Christians, too. If Mumin is Muslim and gets the job, do you think we’ll see the end of atrocious and immodest cleavage such as this, in a photo of the newly-elected president of the OPS board of education, Lacey Merica (hey! is this mean and critical? I’m sorry. But not sorry. This is atrocious!):
3. Devout Muslims often go the extremely OTHER way from the couture choices of Lacey Merica, requiring persons of the female persuasion to cover up most of their skin molecules while out in public. Many Muslim women wear a head scarf, known as a hijab, or a full-blown head-to-toe burka. Will that become de rigeur for OPS female employees? And since they get so much funding from Susie Buffett’s Sherwood Foundation, which also funded the “celebrated” Prom dress made all out of colorful condoms, will we now see the first-in-the-world hijabs and burkas made out of colorful condoms? If they do keep their X-rated sex ed which “celebrates” condoms as a teaching . . . er, tool, it would kill two birds, after all. (p.s. Methinks no chance — not that nobody would wear a hijab made of condoms in OPS — they probably think it’s a good idea — but that OPS would get rid of its God-awful X-rated sex ed.)
4. Now, devout Muslims earnestly seek to convert non-Muslims to their faith, which is esteemed as highly preferable to having to kill them if they don’t convert. (“Those who reject Islam must be killed. If they turn (on you), tthen seize and kill them wherever you encounter them,” Surah 4:89 of the Qur’an) (“When you meet the disbelievers in battle, strike them in the neck, and once they are defeated, bind any captives firmly — later you can release them as a grace or for ransom — until the toils of war have ended,” Surah 47:4) (“It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land,” Surah 8:67). So how would these ideas square with the no-bullying program in OPS? Just kidding; of COURSE I’m just kidding. But there’s something very odd about school districts who do not “get” that promoting Islam and dissing Christianity is not the grooviest thing to do — and that’s when the superintendent is a nominal Christian, as in this case. What kind of lawsuits are going to have to be filed if we appoint a whole bunch of well-meaning, devout Muslims as public school superintendents in this country — superintendents who care about the children under their charge and don’t wish that any be killed — therefore — the sensible thing to do, they think, is to turn the kiddies into Muslims so that they can LIVE. These ignorant parents in Maryland are suing over that idea. Sigh. Of COURSE I’m using hyperbole here. Of COURSE. . . .
