The bible thing is wrong on so many levels I can't even start to process it.

The worksheet thing though? We're Italian in our traditions, though very English in a lot of the food. Our kids started having water with a splash of wine in it at dinner when they could be trusted to use a glass correctly. Our grand kids the same.

Yep, Dearborn is one of the points where the muslims have gained a foot hold. There is a city near there, Hamtramck, where they sound the muslim call to prayer 5 times a day.

It is. That's why I'm surprised they'd mention wine at all. Apparently, they were trying to teach the "long i" sound (lime, wine, smile) but I guess no other words came to mind.  ^-^

As for the Bible, I wonder if that particular book has been banned everywhere. When I was in 11th grade, I actually took a "Bible as Literature" course in a public high school for my English credit. I guess those days are over!

I'd be willing to bet if the father sent him with a Koran the school wouldn't have said a word.

Our daughter took a class with that name in the late nineties in a public school.

I haven't checked, but I'm guessing it's not taught in very many (if any) schools any more.
Character still matters.  It always matters.
