I didn't explain well, and it all sort of vomited up. Let me try get this right:
The OP is about my alarm that this sect was allowed to address kids with a form of Islam that is not representative of mainstream Islam. My concern is that the school did not inform the children of this nor has there been any additional information about mainstream Islam. Specifically, the Islam they were introduced to is a very fuzzy, gentle version that is not even on the same spectrum as average and extremist practitioners.

I would not be nearly as high up on my horse if lectures from 'normal' muslims were planned. Ideally, an ISIS twit would be perfect. I do think that our children need to be educated about the risks inherent in religion and specifically in Islam.

I'm still not understanding this.

What exactly is the problem...
1) what is written in the holy texts?
2) what is taught from the holy texts? or
3) what is practiced from the holy texts?

Because your above post doesn't convey the issue very well. I thought this was a simple matter of "hey now, this kind of misrepresents what many Muslims think, or at the least are being taught" but now I'm getting a distinct "they're living next door! they must be stopped at all costs!" vibe.

I think the simple is answer to 1, 2 and 3 is Yes, I have a problem with 1, 2 and 3, although that's not a reaction to the OP.
