Sad, yes. Surprising, no.

Pretty flawless logic there, junior. This country is was built on my particular flavor of Christianity. You should learn to respect that.

For every problem, there is a solution that is simple, obvious, and wrong.

Those poor christians. Why do the unbelievers insist on stopping them from forcing their religion on the youth?

It's a war on Christianity, I tells ya

Sounds a little over-the-top.

On the other hand, I've heard worse.

How in the he'll did a public school get away with teaching fundamentalist shiat for this long in the first place? The science teacher teaches that the world is 6000 years old?? Do any of those kids who "graduate" from this high school ever actually find a college that will accept them? Damn.

As a Christian I resent support this irony.

You might be taking Rule 34 just a shade too far on this one.

Fixed that for you. The school board members just have an easier time of screwing over their local taxpayers with their lunacy... they're all aggressively stupid.

Well, to be fair, religion is UNDENIABLY a choice.

You ever eat at a Buddhist soup kitchen? Those jackasses only serve ketchup, raman and peas. I don't care what god they believe, or not, their farking brains are starved of protein.

There go those damned militant Buddhists again, oppressing the poor Christian masses!

Hope you like the sensation of the ACLU's foot up your ass, ignorant zealots!

Of course I am sure it is the christian teacher who feels that she is really the oppressed one.

The difference being that fundamentalists on the school board are clueless enough to document that they're doing things for religious reasons. (See also: the guy in Dover, PA who justified teaching intelligent design because "2000 years ago, somebody died on a cross. Can't somebody take a stand for him?")

My understanding is that HOA boards are usually more circumspect, if no less vile.

Her first amendment rights and those of the children to express their faith are the real victims here.

If it's anything like my school in central Louisiana, most of the kids never see the inside of a college upon graduating, and when they do, they're taking so many remedial courses, they might not quite make it to the sciences before they drop out.

Those that DO go to college and succeed, they're smart enough not to believe the fundamentalist dribble, or at least understand the difference between what's in their bible and what's in the textbook, and which they are required to regurgitate when.

Well I am convinced.  In the face of all evidence to the contrary I will now believe in creationism.  Also, I will refuse all scientific explanations involving charged particles for the mysterious and completely magical phenomenon known as electricity.

Exactly. How dare these damn Athiests put a damned Muslim Buddhist in her classroom, just to allow Satan in.

No no no. It's the ACLU making their brand of trouble again!
The Buddhist kid is just an excuse.
Jeez, I mean, he already moved away, problem solved.

In fact, I heard that the one kid didn't even exist, and the ACLU just made him up!
To oppress Christians! Really!

I never noticed it before, but the last sentence has a period following the "you" for no apparent reason.  Cripes, not only is the science bad but the punctuation as well.

Louisiana has given public funds to christian charter schools known for teaching creationism...

I'd like to say, "I'll wait and hear the other side of the story before drawing a conclusion."  I mean, I want to be that level headed.   That reasonable.  But it's Fundamentalist Christians being assholes in Louisiana.... it's probably true.

Didn't they fire all the teachers in LA after Katrina? Or was that just in New Orleans?

Louisiana


It's north of US 190 or I-10, so its not really the part of Louisiana anyone wants to go to anyway.  Unless you like to church it up with rattlesnakes and can speak in tongues.
