jayhawk88: teenage mutant ninja rapist: Of course I am sure it is the christian teacher who feels that she is really the oppressed one.

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


Hey. Don't make me come up there.

Reminds me of that time I told someone I was black and they were all like, "You know, being black is a choice. Michael Jackson changed his skin color and you could too if you really wanted. You could use a bleaching cream until your skin got white."

Wow. Just wow. I didn't even know where to begin with that one so I just walked away.

Dinobot: shastacola: 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.

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


Well to fair, it was what done came on them fancy learning VHS tapes we had the kids watch all day.

BubbaWayne: Barry Lyndon's Annuity Cheque: Untouchable union teachers living high on the hog and indoctrinating our youth.

Teachers union?  In Louisiana?  You do know about "Right to work" states, don't you?


Yeah I want to get in on that but I stupidly went looking for a number - the only one I found in a couple minutes of massaging the googles was that LA has 0-20% teacher union representation (the lowest category) on some 5 color map on a "We HATE UNIONS" website.  I'd assume it's probably zero (or almost so) union representation for teachers.

fusillade762: Didn't they fire all the teachers in LA after Katrina? Or was that just in New Orleans?


This was in Sabine Parish, which is really a part of Texas.

Thank god I grew up in South, Louisiana.

fusillade762: Didn't they fire all the teachers in LA after Katrina? Or was that just in New Orleans?


The Orleans Parish School Board, which controls the curriculum and policies for six schools in New Orleans, voted Tuesday to ban the teaching of creationism as science and a "revisionist" history course touted in Texas.

Two and a half more years of apprenticeship, then I'll have the freedom to move out of this backwards assed hellhole of a state, and have a job waiting for me where-ever I go (in the US or Canada). I'm outta here..

The other 95% is fiber to make you shiat.

Just make sure, when you hear the words "Christian Oppression" in the United States, remember it means to them that the Christians are not freely allowed to push their faith upon people who disagree with them. If a Christian was talking about oppression in Saudi Arabia or China, then we'd have something to talk about, but still remember what was the first thing the Christians did after the Iraq War ended? They came in there with Bibles and missionaries, intent on converting Muslims when their faith was low and their country in shambles. Christianity, just stop with the pressuring of faith upon people who don't agree with your religion and we'll stop "oppressing" you! Hell, we might even let you put up a 10 Commandments display after we put it next to a statue of the Flying Spagetti monster, Buddha, and Cthulhu.

//Rather see all religions and non-beliefs have an equal footing in the US as the Founding Fathers intended it instead of this Christian Dominionist fantasy that always occurs when the fundamentalist Christians feel they can get away with it

That explains Papa Duck's shiat, if he was "educated" in LA public schools.

no excuse
 
2014-01-23 06:57:32 PM
It's either this or more snowflakes.

In all seriousness though, we appear to have become a very adversarial country. Everyone can find themselves one one end of the pole on something and take issue with it. Now we're swinging from extremes on very fundamental issues which can do even more harm.

It will be interesting to see how the next 20 years plays out.

Actually peas have an enormous amount of protein, depending on how you measure it.

On a per calorie basis, peas have more than 5 times as much protein as beef, and almost zero fat

Gergesa: 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.

No. It's just that many of them - especially, but not exclusively,  older whites in the south - didn't get the memo to stop being being the most insensitive, inhuman buttholes imaginable

stoicjohn: Ok someone level with me, did the Internet invent Creationism to help them spot the loonies?


It must have. I don't recall Bible stories being taught anywhere except in church, and then mainly as morality tales to instill good behavior toward others. They were absolutely not taught as scientific fact.

/Of course that was back in the 70s in a small town.
 
2014-01-23 07:04:34 PM
The ACLU, a fundamentalist Christian being persecuted for her beliefs; this will likely be big poutrage in the right wing echo chamber before long.

These authoritarian fundy fruit loops are part of the reason I fear the gop.

Poor Greg Fishman. The only Jew in Oklahoma City (or so it seemed) in 1972. Mrs. Bodine (yes, that's her real name) asked Greg if it was okay if she read from the book of Luke at Christmas. The coup de gras? It was biology class.

If you wanna be Buddhist and wear a turban and pray to the holy cow and all that shiat, do it on your own time. I'm sure there's a 711 or some shiat close by where they hold prayer chants in between refilling the Slurpee machine.
