Buried among a slew of short news update on Monday morning’s edition of Fox & Friends was this disturbing revelation from reporter Heather Nauert: “Sharia law is now changing everything.”
Nauert was reporting on a YMCA swim class in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota that will cater to the religious beliefs of Somali-American girls. “The minority becoming the majority at one community pool,” she said. before issuing the warning that “similar classes are now starting at towns across the Midwest.”
According to The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, “During the hourlong swim practice, all other swimmers are cleared out of the pool. The men’s locker room is locked. Female life guards are brought in.”
While the Fox segment did highlight those aspects of the story, the show did not touch on the success the program has had at building up the girls’ confidence. “We’ve moved kids from being afraid of the water to really being able to tread water,” Mary Britts, executive director for the downtown YMCA told the Star-Tribune.
Proof that Sharia law is “changing everything?” Or one community’s attempt to help some young girls attend swim class?
