I am sure the churches and synagogues will be surprised, how about mosques can they run Ohio schools too?

Fingerpainting with shiat is something I've had my dogs do when they were boarded at the vet
Not something to emulate

Not just Ohio, subs:

Ahead of the debate, Mandel tweeted that the country should "shut down government schools and put schools in churches and synagogues."

/ Unless that was an "It's all Ohio" joke that was too subtle for me

Hey, josh?

I'm from your area. You don't want this. You will upset rich school donors and sponsors. Who will then reveal the things you have done locally in the past.

Walk away now while you still can.

NO

"Jude-Christian" only. Because reasons.

For those unfamiliar with Mandel and his political style, it's worth noting for context that much of his campaign is built on making outrageous political statements, which he peddles in the hopes that his provocative rhetoric will be denounced, which in turn empowers Mandel to effectively boast to the GOP base, "Look at all the liberals who are mad at me."

Laughter o L. The Trump Party platform right there.

The answer is no, and wait till they find out synagogues is where Jewish people worship.

Got to say increasingly crazy shiat to distinguish yourself from others who are also trying to demonstrate their comparative devotion to the hive mind.

F-ing idiot. You make us less competitive in the world market by limiting education.

Another Republican asshole who thinks government is incompetent and insists on being elected in order to prove it.
 
2021-10-25 8:51:49 PM  
It would be my pleasure to vote against this asshat... I really hope the Democrats put up someone with some real chops because we need a solid candidate to have any chance. I'm still surprised we have one senator that isn't a jackass and that the GQP senator isn't the worst one in the senate... I feel like Ohio is going to triple down on stupid this coming election.

His next closest competition is this farkface:

And given the R leanings of the state electorate right now, I'm terrified we may get either of them.

That works because the GQP base is a bunch of low information idiots.

They want to choose the children that they brainwash and eliminate education for THOSE OTHER (read anyone other than WASP) children.

Well, if you want to kill religion the best way might be to force all kids into a religious school.

Apathy is more powerful than you "god"

Madrasas are still cool under your bill, yeah Senator?

Knowing how triggered the libs are is a kind of information, though. You know - "the blogosphere is abuzz with outrage" type of thing.

in churches and synagogues ... but MOSQUES?  That's counter to freedom of religion.

I'm not even going to waste my time getting upset about this Gilead assclown. The RIGHT to a free and public education is enshrined in Brown Vs Board of Education, and GOOD FARKING LUCK trying to overturn that, MAGAts!
 
2021-10-25 9:18:40 PM  
I'd be willing the same people funding the school board candidates in Cleveland Heights are ultimately funding Mandel as well.   All the candidates certainly want the sweet voucher money to go to Yeshivas and parochial schools.
 
2021-10-25 9:23:43 PM  
farking up public education is one of the core tenants of the GOP. This guy just lacks the nuance.
 
2021-10-25 9:40:28 PM  
Just churches and synagogues?   Not mosques?   Wonder why that was left out.

Problem: Roe V Wade is already likely to be struck down. Which means Griswold V Connecticut doesn't have a leg to stand on.

Our "inalienable rights" are teetering on the brink.

Their "luck" in overturning precedent is pretty good. I for one am rather nervous.

Bah, hit submit too soon.

They have been going after Brown for years. I'm pretty sure it is the 3rd question on the Federalist Society questionnaire for judges.

Can they open madrassas too?
 
2021-10-25 10:07:21 PM  
It's such vapid Christianity. Buzzwords and virtue signaling.
 
2021-10-25 10:11:58 PM  
So who wants to start a nationwide system of Church of Satan parochial schools?

Don't look at us like that, this is literally what you wanted.

The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA has a constitution that allows freedom of religion. This is the opposite, asshole. You take this shiat out of this country because it has no place here.

But imagine the apocalyptic sh*tstorm such an assault would ensue. Every ACLU and SPLC lawyer has a daydream to get a case where they can kick in the collective dicks of anyone trying to overturn that sacred ruling.

I bet he wants to be sure the taxpayers still have to pay for it though. Gotta grift more money to the churches.

"reemphasizing his belief that education should be privatized."

Too bad if you can't afford to send your kids to school.


But hey, what American needs to do is turn its schools into profit centers. That will clearly make them cheaper and more efficient.

And posting it here as well...

If people who pushed religion actually believed in it, they wouldn't be such arseholes about it.

/lake of fire, where you spend an eternity in burning pain and being dragged down by everyone it it as they try to use you as a stepladder to try and escape the flames.  Or to make sure you are not the one that gets out of the fire while they suffer.
