British moms and dads were fuming after a school instructed students to write an essay explaining why they had converted to Islam.
Gemma Gough posted the assignment on Facebook -- and said her child would not be completing the assignment.
"This is not acceptable," she wrote. "Kids are too impressionable and imagine if these letters got in the wrong hands in years to come."
"The 12- and 13-year-old kids at Beaucamps High School in Guernsey were told to consider what it would be like to become a Muslim," Starnes explains. "They also had to write a letter to their loved ones explaining their decision to become a Muslim."
According to Starnes, the "controversial lesson was part of a creative writing exercise as part of a religious education lesson, The Daily Mail reports. The school pointed out that it was a make-believe scenario -- and no child was actually forced to convert to the Islamic faith."
No doubt appropriately skeptical, "local residents were not convinced," Starnes notes.
