Horrible, just horrible. Just think there are people saying teach both sides. However there are somethings that don’t have two sides, don’t require that idea. There is no way moses was any part of the founding of our country, we are not teaching religious creation in science class, it is not a science, evolution is science and not a myth. My God they even changed the type of government we have, there is a huge difference between a democracy and a “constitutional republic”. One gives the people the vote, the other takes it ways from them. If you only read one thing I post today, please make it this one, and if you can in anyway…stop this before generations of kids have lost the truth of their history and country. One way these people win is by doing things behind everyone’s back, that also needs to stop. And just to be very clear this is pushed by mostly christian ideas, with a 10 percent political agenda. As I have posted many times before this nation was not , NOT, founded as a “christian nation”. The founding fathers were not really religious people, and they made clear by their writings and the articles they wrote that they did not want a religious state or a state religion. They made clear they wanted a wall between the two. But these revisionist want no one to know or remember that. Hugs
several excerpts below:
The new standards are causing controversy in part because they require that Moses be cited as a major influencer of America’s founding documents. Marisa Perez and four other Democrats on Texas’ 15-member State Board of Education voted against adopting the new textbooks.
A Democrat who voted against the changes
“At the 11th hour, we were literally handed a stack of changes that were going to be recommended to the textbooks,” Perez recalled. “If we had gone by the timeline, we had probably about three days to review hundreds of pages of proposed factual errors that were being requested of publishers to change in the books.”
“We are a very diverse culture and we need to embrace that. Not everybody is Christian. Not everybody leans politically in one way or the other.”
One of the proposed “factual errors” involved defining America as a “constitutional republic” instead of a democracy.
or this one which is very scary:
But what about the fact Moses didn’t have anything to do with the writing of the American Constitution?
“If there’s question if it is seen as not a fact to some, both sides need to be presented,” Linahan responded. “I guess everything is relative, isn’t it, to what a person’s belief system is. And that’s why there is that review process in place for those standards. … I think that if there is a question – whether it’s evolution, creationism, whatever – that both sides should be presented.”
