Texas curriculum reformed to promote Christianity.

Recommended Posts

As someone who lives in a country where there is still no state/church separation and there has always been a compulsory religion class at school (this includes high school), that wouldn't surprise me if I still was in my school years.

Of course now I consider it a step backwards.

Then again in Italy where such a separation had occured, they still had an (optional) religion class where only the Catholic religion was taught, and said religion was still granted a privileged status by the (otherwise laical) law.

Yeah, This is further down the spiral from when I posted Texas' prop to remove political figureheads. Sad really.

Both political sides in Texas have already stated their disapproval about this, and this is the actions of a few powerful individuals, and not the entire state. I want you to know that. these are 9 people that have too much power as it is.

It's not just promoting Christianity, it's also promoting far-right paranoia (e.g. "the UN is a threat to America"). Plus the whole Tea Party doctrine which is far too simplistic a viewpoint to be relevant.

Yes, I actually thought that was more important than just the Christian aspect of it.

I'm all for it promoting Christianity. But thats as much as I know about the reform - anyone care to paraphrase or point out a link describing it?

That's what scares me most.

Mind you, any sort of teaching will have some sort of implied doctrine, but eventually it gets to be ridiculous. What's next, we're taught that it's biblically provable (and therefore true without argument) that saturated fat, excess amounts of salt, and adding sugar to everything is good for us?

IMO, somebody wants money and/or power, and they see a way to get it without making it apparent.

The UN is a threat to America!

Wait, someone made a typo.... There's an extra h in that sentence.

The UN is a treat to America!

There we go

The UN is such a threat to us that it has a giant headquarters in Manhattan, constantly terrorizing it's citizenry. Black vans get sent out from the place and little children disappear It's like a supervillain headquarters in a comic book or something. Except for the part that its exactly nothing like what I just described after the headquarters bit.

I heard they are building a bomb shelter across the street for all of the UN delegates so that when New York gets nuked they can still discuss what to do about it.

And none of that implies anything sinister, evil or shows any intent of malice on the UN's part at all. I would expect them to do this. It's fucking common sense.

Yes, but that's IMO a further step of their irrational paranoia they have towards history, science and well. anything that doesn't coincide with their beliefs.

Csonicgo: That really just makes it worse. That a small minority of people can do this reform, affecting a lot of different states without it being challenged for another 10 years.

The UN isn't a war-machine, you know that right?

There is a practical side to it. It shows how economic and religious fundamentalism are two facets of the same thing. You naturally need strict religion in an economic system of exploitation, as people can't tolerate abuse without delusion. Often it can appear that right wing libertarians and religious conservatives are only incidentally related, but they are inseparable.

Leviticus 3:17 says:
It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood.

(Most of Leviticus gets ignored these days, except for some reason the bits about homosexuality...)

Big deal, I hear there's a bomb shelter under the East Wing of the White House.
(Except as Csonicgo points out, it makes sense to do so. So much sense that they actually did it.)

Religion isn't the only entity that brainwashes people. Ask the Vegetable Oil racket why evil ol' saturated fat is so bad for us. I'm sure that they'll have no conflict of interest explaining their side of it, or why the FDA jumped on board of unproven assertions when the money was rolling in. But I don't wish to derail this topic. So I'll leave anyone curious to look into the matter on his or her own. That is all.

Religion, any religion, has no place in a public educational system. It adds nothing to the necessary educational skills that youth need today, or has in any era/age.

In the USA, anyone is free to practice their religion in their personal lives, whatever that religion may be. That's why we already have separation of church & state statutes in place, enough said.

With all these degenerate eurosocialist scumbags spreading their filth around the globe, I say go for it Texas, breed a stronger generation of conservatives, be the bastion of freedom, save yourselves and don't take shite from anybody, specially the UN, they're all red as a baboon's arse and utterly undeserving of any respect or consideration. Nuke'em all and ship them corpses back to France.
