A formal Federal lawsuit has been filed by the Thomas More Law Center, a heavy hitter in the conservative legal field, against a Virginia School District, their Board, and the Principal and Vice Principle who violated the US Constitution and Civil Rights regulations by requiring students to study Islam for two weeks.

Here it is below - very good oversight, and issues explained with some preaching thrown in. Points to consider. There were about 200 people attending and they constantly clapped at the points he made. "God loves everyone, but Islam hates many..." he pointed out.
