This is a good example of why there should NOT be any religion in school. In the guise of teaching religion, Texas is actually creating ignorance where the children should be increasing knowledge, with a possible by-product being the historical racism and bigotry that the Bible encourages.
Texas has a history of this, most notably in the desire of members of the Texas Board of education wanting to teach Intelligent Design as an alternative to evolution. What a bunch of bullpucky, but since Texas is the largest purchaser of textbooks in the country, it’s a serious issue not only for Texas children, but all children in the country.
And look what the educational system produces. Ignorant simpletons like Rick Perry and George Bush. Though in all fairness to those two, I’m not sure they were educated in Texas, but both of them exemplify and encourage the production of badly educated students with their religious pandering and blathering.
Teach children facts, not superstition.
If blacks are the descendants of Ham, then Noah also was black and the only other passengers on the ark besides his family were animals…so where did whites come from?
Good point…I guess we’re albino blacks? 😉
Unfortunately there IS religion being taught in schools. It is LIBERALISM. Any course that threatens the established religion of Liberalism is considered heresy and must be rooted out before it can grow. Intelligent Design is as much of a theory as Evolution. ID simply states that so many things had to be JUST RIGHT for us to be here, that it’s highly unlikely we are a coincidence. Mathematically the odds of this planet being JUST SO FAR from the sun and the mass of the earth being JUST SO LARGE and the rotation being JUST SO FAST AND REGULAR that we can survive is astronomical. It says that there was SOMETHING that designed who we are; not a specific god. Even that little bit is too much of a threat to people who should not be afraid of a debate.
I’d need to see lesson plans that spell out what the article accuses Texas of teaching. I want video proof. I simply do not trust people who have a vested interest in keeping our children indoctrinated into what is essentially humanist secularism; that mankind is a random occurrence accountable only unto himself- or should I say “Himself”.
Ok. You win the Internet today for the dumbest comment, the one most devoid of intelligence, I’ve seen today. Congratulations. Your can pick up your award at the Walmart Service Desk.
