Again a religionist tries to force a false history filled with his religious views on public schools.

Oklahoma Lawmaker Wants to Push Christian Revisionist History in Public Schools

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2019/02/16/oklahoma-lawmaker-wants-to-push-christian-revisionist-history-in-public-schools/

Christian nationalists are always looking for ways to use our public schools to promote their warped, revisionist version of U.S. history. Myths like Christianity and the Bible playing a central role at the Constitutional Convention (nope, and it didn’t include a formal prayer either), like George Washingtonpraying in the snow at Valley Forge (he didn’t), or the Ten Commandments forming the basis of our laws (not even close).

We all know where this is going.

Bullard is seeking to use the machinery of the state to promote Christian nationalism and its bad history. He wants public school history classes in Oklahoma to be live versions of Hobby Lobby’s wildly misleading July 4 ads.

Instead, the founders chose to keep state and church separate. The “wall of separation” between state and church is an American original. The idea was floating around in the Enlightenment, but it was first implemented in the American Experiment. It’s right there in the first words of our Constitution: “We the people.” Those words are poetic, but also declare that power comes from people, not gods. That was revolutionary. America invented the separation of state and church, and we ought to be proud of that fact.

Or committed.

Popularity neither determines nor reflects veracity. What this means is that religions are no more inherently “true” than cults.

I wish there was a transcript of this as many of my viewers do not care for videos or have time for them.   If anyone knows of one please let me know and I will add it to the post.  Thanks.  Hugs

Again religion tries to ruin education for all children

Filed under: Atheism, Children, Criminal, Education, Fascism, Harm, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 07:33

Religious politicians try to again force their myth in to the education system and on to everyone’s children.  Why teach children the facts as best we know them?  Why use the science that has shown what our reality is?  Why teach what we can show and prove when we can teach an unfounded myth that has no evidence to show it is anything more than a fable written in the iron age?   Science has moved us into the modern age, it is time to leave the fables behind.   Hugs

It always means what they want it to mean.

Bigfoot will send you to hell

Wouldn’t it just be safer to believe in Bigfoot?

Probably because humanity is more moral than the bible-god character.

Also, HR cannot find anything that says you ever actually worked here, so this is really more of a formality to remove you from the system.

if and when these preachers get control of the Republican party, and they’re sure trying to do so

“Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they’re sure trying to do so, it’s going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can’t and won’t compromise. I know, I’ve tried to deal with them.”

Slavery or a hug?

At this point we have to conclude that he doesn’t even want to be real.

In Montana, Faith-Based Treatment Programs (With No Oversight) Are Harming Kids

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2019/01/22/in-montana-faith-based-treatment-programs-with-no-oversight-are-harming-kids/

These faith-based ministries don’t always staff their facilities with licensed professionals, they don’t always do background checks, and there are multiple cases of alleged sexual abuse against the kids. Religion is getting in the way of public safety of some of the state’s most vulnerable citizens.

Tell me again how religion is good , please? Seems rather immoral to me.
