Birmingham conservative group not giving up fight against alleged pro-Islamic textbooks
by Evan Belanger
The Alabama State Board of Education dismissed last week allegations from conservative groups that 11 textbooks on the state's new list for social studies material are pro-Islamic and diminish Christianity.
Now, the founder of one of those groups says he'll continue to fighting to keep the textbooks out of Alabama classrooms, encouraging local school boards to reject textbooks.
"It's not anti-Islamic as such. It's the indoctrination and propaganda and false information about Islam -- primarily its history on how their cultures interacted with others," said Larry Houck, founder of the Birmingham chapter of ACT! for America.
