School Has BRUTAL Response After Muslims Issue Threat Over Daughter’s Lunch

Outrage ensued after a Muslim mother from Tucson, Arizona, heard that her daughter had eaten pork for lunch at school.  It seems the little girl was served a bacon cheeseburger at lunchtime at her elementary school.

Tucson News Now reports on this woman who is outraged but not enough that she will let the news use her last name or show her face –

Nancy’s daughter is a second grader at Holaway Elementary School. Back in September, as requested by the school, Nancy provided them with a doctor’s note explaining that their family is Muslim and her daughter cannot eat any pork.

Nancy spoke of the incident by playing the victim – “I want my religion to matter to you guys. My daughter shouldn’t have to go to school and be fearful of what’s she’s eating. The lunch lady was like, ‘No, too bad. Just pick it off.’ Picking it off doesn’t work because it’s in the hamburger.

The outraged Muslim mother then took her concerns to the principal –

 “The principal had said because she didn’t wear the traditional clothes and because she’s just a white girl that was going there she didn’t fit that normal stereotype of being Muslim,” Nancy recalled. “So it wasn’t obvious for them to follow the guidelines for her.”

Then horror of horrors there was another incident *GASP* and she felt her daughter was being targeted unfairly due to their religious beliefs when her daughter came home with a cereal bar from the school that contained gelatin, a byproduct of pork. That’s when Nancy began threatening the school, stating if the school continues to refuse to accommodate her daughter, she will file a lawsuit against the school district.

Couple of questions I have here for this mama — as a mama myself and one that actually deals with food allergies, you know the real kind that can land you in the hospital, the carry an epi-pen sort, not my religion doesn’t allow me to eat that kind sort — Why oh why does this broad not pack her daughter’s lunch?

When asked JUST that –  Nancy gave this incoherent reply:

And that was part if it. We told them we could send that – but at that same time she doesn’t want to have to be that different child.

MMMM’kay because carrying a lunchbox to school is THAT different? Because I’ve been in the lunchroom in an elementary school, this week in fact and that’s fairly common actually.  What I think she’s actually saying is that she is LAZY and does not want to pack her child’s lunch because it takes extra effort.  I know because I do it every single morning. It’s the only way to truly ensure that your child doesn’t eat something that may be harmful to them, along with talking to your child about what they can or cannot eat and keeping an open line of communication with the school.

My second question – How is this not a violation of the separation of church and state?  Because I can assure you if my Catholic self walked up into a school and demanded fish on Friday through Lent and had a hissy fit because I was served a burger, then I played the victim card and threatened a lawsuit? Yeah, I’d get laughed out of town and probably waste a lot of money on court costs and attorney fees.  That would be about it.  I think the same would likely be said for a Jewish student regarding pork or any other religious dietary accommodation.

The Amphitheater Unified School District actually responded with a statement attempting to explain to the Muslim woman that the district is actually not required to accommodate her dietary requirements for religious purposes —

Even though the district is not required to accommodate special dietary needs based solely on religious purposes, our district nutritionist and food services staff plan menus that are compliant and meet the various nutritional guidelines, as well as include food options that are the best fit for the food preferences of the school. We encourage families with children with any special dietary needs to make sure they are educating their children about what to look for so they know what is acceptable and what they should avoid.

Our menus are always posted online and you can request the ingredient list for any food item you are unsure about. In situations where there are special food requirements or restrictions, we encourage you to meet with our district nutritionist to discuss the best options for your family. The best way to ensure a meal meets any special dietary needs is to send a meal from home that you have prepared. Every child is different and we do our best to ensure a healthy, accommodating environment for all of our students.

To put it in plain and simple terms?  It’s called personal responsibility – if your child has special dietary requirements? Pack their lunch.  The school offers a lunch menu so parents will know what their child is being served ahead of time as a general rule if for whatever reason packing a lunch is not an option on a particular day.
