Dissecting arguments from the Christianity-focused Thomas Moore Law Center who says a history lesson was unconstitutionally supportive of Islam, the Fourth Circuit appeared ready Tuesday to give the appeal an “F.”
“Do we have to go to court every time someone teaches about religion,” U.S. Circuit Judge James Wynn complained this morning. “One statement per court hearing? How is that manageable?”
The case stems from the 2014-15 school year at La Plata High School in Maryland’s Charles County School District. Caleigh Wood, a junior, claimed that her rights were violated during a world-history class where the teacher focused on how Islam influences the Middle East politics.
