  • Thankfully my school district doesn't. But, yes, this is just another example of why I wish I could move out of TX.

  • Thankfully they don't teach that at my kids' schools. It would just add to my growing list of things I hate about the schools here.

  • Well, it's Texas. Of course, the Bible Bangers in Tennessee do whatever they can to get their holy book in the schools, even pretending that the Bible is a good source of actual history, even though little of it has been supported by archeology. *sigh*

    The thing is, the FFRF has to have a complaint from a citizen before it gets involved - just like the ACLU.  They don't go scouring the country, as some here have charged (I'm thinking of some heated posts from a while back).  They don't send letters without contact from a citizen, and they don't take it any farther without a request.
