TEXTBOOK CHALLENGE
Recently a group of local citizens asked the Charlotte County School District to stop using two world history textbooks that, among other things, teach our children that Christians, Jews and Muslims all worship the same god. While some may believe this to be true, we know this is demonstrably false. While it is reasonable to teach school children how different religions have impacted the society in which we live, it is not appropriate to provide false, misleading and biased information about any religion to accomplish this.

At last Sunday’s voters meeting the congregation approved a motion that LCC officially support the request to stop using these textbooks. This official declaration of support will authorize Pastor Redmann and officers of the church to speak publically on behalf of LCC in support of this request.
Your support can be very important in stopping the use of these textbooks. The Charlotte County School Board will be holding a special meeting to rule on the use of these books next Tuesday, March 3rd at 5:30 P.M. at the Charlotte Technical Center Auditorium, 18150 Murdock Circle, Port Charlotte, FL 33948. The auditorium is in the three story building on the Technical Center campus which can be entered from either from Murdock Circle, Education Way or Cochran Blvd. Your attendance at this meeting will indicate to the school board that support for halting the use of these textbooks is widespread and sincere.

Our school board has been given the responsibility of teaching children about religion’s role in history, not indoctrinating them in any particular religion of their or anybody else’s choice. Teaching them that the god of Mohammed is the same as the Triune God of Christianity or the god of Judaism as described in the Torah is intellectually dishonest and offensive, and demonstrates great disrespect to both Christians and Jews.
