Islamophobes Fear Muslim Kids Will Use Vouchers

Posted By on Mon, Apr 1, 2013 at 5:12 AM

Tax dollars paying for kids to attend Muslim schools? Holy Muhammad! Some of the Islamophobes in the legislature have clued in to this possibility as Gov. Bill Haslam's voucher school bill has been debated. It's great for taxpayers to subsidize little Johnny's attendance at Jesus H. Christ Academy, but what if they help send little Ibrahim to a Muslim school?

“This is an issue we must address,” state Sen. Jim Tracy, R-Shelbyville, said. “I don’t know whether we can simply amend the bill in such a way that will fix the issue at this point.”

“This issue gives me pause in voting for the governor’s voucher proposal,” Sen. Bill Ketron, R-Murfreesboro, agreed. “These issues warrant further assessment. What’s the rush? Do we need to send these proposals to summer study (committee)?”

The voucher bill is on the agenda in House and Senate committees again this week.
