Colorado Student Quits High School Choir Over Islamic Song Praising ‘Allah’

1 Peter 5:8-9a, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith …”

Islam, no matter how seemingly benign, subtly instilled into the minds of our youth is Sharia Creep at its worse. What could possibly go wrong with an innocent high school choir singing a song of praise to the god of a religion that wants to destroy the Judeo-Christian principles upon which America was founded, to the god of a political-religious ideology responsible for the deaths of an estimated 270 million ‘infidels’ throughout its bloody 1400-year history? We can eat food that is 99% healthy, and just 1% poison. But good food cannot save the body if poison is allowed to destroy it …

“A Colorado high school student quit the school choir after an Islamic song containing the lyric ‘there is no other truth except Allah’ made it into the repertoire.

James Harper, a senior at Grand Junction High School in Grand Junction, put his objection to singing ‘Zikr,’ a song written by Indian composer A.R. Rahman, in an email to Mesa County School District 51 officials. When the school stood by choir director Marcia Wieland’s selection, Harper quit.

‘I don’t want to come across as a bigot or a racist, but I really don’t feel it is appropriate for students in a public high school to be singing an Islamic worship song,’ Harper told KREX-TV. ‘This is worshipping another God, and even worshipping another prophet … I think there would be a lot of outrage if we made a Muslim choir say Jesus Christ is the only truth.’

District spokesman Jeff Kirtland rejected Harper’s analogy.

‘This is about bringing diversity to the students and showing them other things that are out there,’ Kirtland told KREX. ‘The teacher was open with the parents and students do not have to participate in this voluntary club choir.’

Kirtland did not return multiple calls for comment from FoxNews.com.” Read more.
