Great injustice about to be dealt to Louisiana public school students

What do we expect from a state with a backwards education system? They reap what they sow…idiots.

From Americans United:

The Sky Is Falling!: Scientists, Educators And Civil Liberties Activists Rightly Sound Alarm About La. Legislation

“On Wednesday, with just two weeks left in the legislative session, the Louisiana House of Representatives approved SB 733, a bill intended to facilitate the teaching of creationism in public schools.

The Rev. Barry W. Lynn promptly responded, calling the proposed law an “embarrassment” and guaranteeing legal action if the measure is used “to promote religion in Louisiana public schools.”

Americans United for Separation of Church and State, as well as the American Civil Liberties Union, the National Center for Science Education, the National Academy of Sciences, the American Institute of Biological Sciences, the National Association of Biology Teachers and the new grassroots Louisiana Coalition for Science, decry the legislation as a poorly disguised attempt to bring creationism and its latest variant “intelligent design”(ID), into the classroom under the guise of academic freedom.

The legislature shouldn’t be allowing creationists to undermine Louisiana public schools. The House of Representatives just gave the Religious Right a green light to use other people’s children for their own agenda.” -Barbara Forrest

Watch out for Bobby Jindal. He's the religious right's version of Obama. Think Huckabee on steroids who gets a free pass because of the multiculturalism factor. We'll be seeing more of him by 2016, perhaps even by 2012 if we get the wrong kind of change.

What is it with these Catholic Indians like Jindal and D'Souza? Such right wing douchebags!

These Indian Christian douchebags take around 3 sentences to say one sentence. It helps them try to get one over the demonic atheists.

A quick google search told me there are 24 million Indian Christians. That's more than the world's 14 million Jews, which feels strange.

Jindal, though, is a convert from Hinduism.

Stardust, you've been tagged.

Jason, it seems that converts from one religion to another are often the most fanatical about it.

BEAJ said...

The Christian Indians usually throw in mystical and cosmic mumbo jumbo in their arguments as well (part of their Hindu culture training). It makes them sound smart and that they know what they are talking about.
