More than she said / he denies. This needs police investigation. This is why the republicans do not want the FBI to investigate.

Christian conservatives win; children lose. More reasons why we need separation of church and state.

Bottom line: In a disappointing defeat for historical accuracy and the education of innocent children, the GOP controlled Texas State Board of Education just voted to promote conservative Christian propaganda in statewide social studies curriculum.

Children in Texas deserve better; children deserve the truth.

In a disappointing development for historical accuracy and the education of children, dishonest Christian conservatives on the GOP controlled Texas State Board of Education have successfully forced a false historical narrative into public schools; a narrative that portray Moses as an influence on the founding fathers and the U.S. Constitution; a narrative that portrays the Old Testament as the root of democracy.

In essence, Texas public school students will be taught that the Founding Fathers based the Constitution on the Bible, and that the American system of democracy was inspired by Moses.

In effect, Texas teachers will be forced to promote a false historical narrative in service to the conservative Christian agenda.

Arizona Asked a Young Earth Creationist to Review Evolution Teaching Standards

Filed under: Children, Education, Harm, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 11:38

http://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2018/09/14/arizona-asked-a-young-earth-creationist-to-review-evolution-teaching-standards/

A Young Earth Creationist who says he was called by God to “teach from the Biblical creation perspective” is part of a team in charge of reviewing Arizona’s science standards for teaching evolution. To the surprise of absolutely no one, it’s not going well.

Joseph Kezele, the president of the Arizona Origin Science Association, was appointed by State Superintendent Diane Douglass to serve on the committee last month. They are working to revise curriculum for science — and things were already dire when we first reported on the science standards back in May.

Now it has been confirmed by the Phoenix New Times that Kezele, who makes Creationist videos and teaches biology at a Christian school in Phoenix, is part of a small group who review and amends the new standards.

Evolution, he said, is a false explanation for life and should be taught so that students “can defend against it, if they want to.”

You can’t teach “established, real science” in classrooms while pretending evolution doesn’t fall under that umbrella. The evidence supporting evolution is substantial. Scientists may debate some of the details, but there’s no serious controversy involving the broad strokes of natural selection. The question is why someone who denies science should be able to have a say in what public school students are taught in science classes.

“I’m not saying to put the Bible into the classroom, although the real science will confirm the Bible,” Kezele told Phoenix New Times in an interview on Wednesday. “Students can draw their own conclusions when they see what the real science actually shows.”

He argued that scientific evidence supports his creationist ideas, including the claims that the Earth is only 6,000 years old and that dinosaurs were on board Noah’s Ark.

If this is Kezele’s version of “real science,” educators should want no part of it.

Scaring kids with hell can be deadly

There’s a strong argument to be made that threatening children with the fictional idea of Hellfire is a form of emotional abuse, as many former believers will attest to, but it gets even worse when people who don’t realize that Hell is imaginary take actions to prevent other people from going there.

It’s the threat of Hell that allegedly prompted 14-year-old Nickalas Kedrowitz of Ripley County, Indiana to kill his two younger siblings, 23-month-old Desiree McCartney and 11-month-old Nathaniel Ritz.

We Saw Nuns Kill Children: The Ghosts of St. Joseph’s Catholic Orphanage

Filed under: Children, Criminal, Harm, News, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 16:07

https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/christinekenneally/orphanage-death-catholic-abuse-nuns-st-josephs

This is an incredibly hard read.  The abuse is overwhelming.   But it is something that needs to come out and we need to know if we are going to stop it.  The dead children tortured until they died, the boy that a group of priest had a bet to see which one could be the first to rape him 100 times.  I have cried, I have had to stop, I have had the cold sweats as I forced my self to read this.  And I remembered things I simply want to forget.  But it is important.  After reading how the church lied, hid stuff, made up things to discredit what the victims were saying, how the church felt they had the right to do what they chose to those children body, mind, and soul.   No one had ever try to tell me they have any moral high ground nor talk to me about right and wrong.  It is a hard read.   It has been a long afternoon, I need a drink.   Hugs

A 1998 UK government inquiry, citing “exceptional depravity” at four homes run by the Christian Brothers order in Australia, heard that a boy was the object of a competition between the brothers to see who could rape him 100 times.

Federal government files new regulations that will impact way migrant families are treated

The proposal to end a judge’s oversight of the Flores agreement, as it’s known, comes as federal officials report that more than 500 immigrant children remain separated from their parents in the wake of President Donald Trump’s “zero-tolerance” policy.

In a news conference on Friday, child detention experts and a lawyer from the Flores legal team raised concerns that the administration’s new regulations could overturn fundamental standards of care required in the federal agreement.

“The administration is planning its next step, which we believe will result in even more suffering and trauma for children,” said Ai-jen Poo, a leader of the Families Belong Together Coalition. “By dismantling long-standing child protection under the Flores settlement agreement and implementing regulations in its place, the Trump administration is seeking to expand its power to jail families for longer in worse conditions and lock children indefinitely.”

Atheism / religions / WTF

Imaginary creatures can do anything they want.

When you’re so desperate to defend pedophiles, you reveal you don’t know anything about your own superstitions.
Meanwhile Catholics - and Xtians - on Twitter are bending over backwards to blame an imaginary boogeymonster, rather than the humans who...

But forgot to tell his son-self that diseases aren’t caused by demons.
