READ: Mom's angry note to teacher about Islam assignment goes viral

A California mother says she refused to let her son complete a homework assignment on Islam, sending back an angry message for his teacher.

Tara Cali, of Bakersfield, uploaded a photo of the worksheet to Facebook, bringing it to the attention of a local news station, KGET-TV.
