AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- A resolution before the Texas State Board of Education says some world history textbooks push a pro-Muslim, anti-Christian view.

The board plans to vote on the issue next week, The Dallas Morning News reported.

Texas recently went through a bruising debate about the teaching of U.S. history. While social conservatives on the board won most of what they wanted, two of them lost in the Republican primary and will be off the board next year, the newspaper said.

I'll try to find a source that has examples, but I don't have much hope that I'll find anything. There was nothing with the UPI story.

I imagine that any examples should be rather lengthy.

They've got to get their licks in while they still have a majority.
