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.

Portland Cops Accused Of Colluding With Extremists

Gibson’s events, occurring regularly in the Pacific Northwest since President Donald Trump’s election, have alarmed and enraged Portlanders—even prompting the mayor to propose new rules restricting protests. That’s because the rallies have attracted white supremacists and other extremists, and are often thinly veiled pretexts for Gibson’s group, the Vancouver-Wash-based Patriot Prayer, to wage violent street fights with masked antifascists.

Hit the link for much more. Gibson last appeared on JMG in July 2018 when riot police broke up his US Senate campaign rally.

Executive time at the White House

Trump Installs Room-Sized Golf Simulator Game At WH

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/02/trump-installs-room-sized-golf-simulator-game-at-wh/

Trump’s system cost about $50,000, and was put in during the last few weeks in a room in his personal quarters, a White House official said.

President Trump has built his schedules around long blocks of “executive time” — unstructured periods in the day where the president’s schedules show no official meetings. He often spends this time watching TV, tweeting, holding impromptu meetings and making phone calls, aides have said.

President Obama reportedly had a similar but far less sophisticated golf simulator.

Missouri Planned Parenthood Set on Fire in Possible Hate Crime

If this was indeed a hate crime, it’s hard to know what the arsonist hoped to accomplish. It’s possible the person was so ignorant that he or she wrongly assumed the facility offered abortions. They don’t. In fact, there’s only one Planned Parenthood in the state that currently offers those services, and it’s in St. Louis.

Which means this criminal just tried torching a building that offers cancer screenings.

Extremist Militia Members In Front Row At Trump Rally

Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes and members of his far-right armed militia were spotted in the front row at President Donald Trump’s February 11 rally in El Paso, TX. Rhodes has advocated for training armed militias to do Trump’s bidding, embraced white supremacist conspiracy theories, endorsed using “lethal force” against left-wing protesters, and called on armed Oath Keepers to stand guard outside of schools and to spot unauthorized crossings at the U.S. southern border.

What the hell is it with these people?

Butterfly Sanctuary Seeks Restraining Order On Wall

Fascist arrogant thugs! 

The motion alleges that federal agents and contractors have been driving without permission through the Rio Grande Valley refuge’s property to access nearby federal land for the last week, and that they even replaced one of the butterfly center’s gate locks.

The Trump administration plans to break ground on a 6-mile stretch of border wall as soon as soon as this week, starting with a federal wildlife refuge tract just upriver from the privately-owned butterfly center.

Again the police and government make the streets safe for racists and bigots while prosecuting LGBTQ victims.

West Virginia GOP State Rep: If My Son Or Daughter Say They Are Gay, I’ll See If They Can Swim

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/02/west-virginia-gop-state-rep-if-my-son-or-daughter-say-they-are-gay-ill-see-if-they-can-swim-video/

Last week Porterfield called LGBTs a “modern day terrorist KKK” when speaking in support of a bill that would ban local LGBT rights ordinances statewide. That bill failed to advance out of committee. But wait, there’s more:

Porterfield was asked by a WVVA reporter “what would happen” if his son or daughter came to him years from now and said they might be gay or lesbian. “Well, I would dress my daughter first, as I would take her for a pedicure, I’d take her to get her nails done, and see if she could swim,” Porterfield said as he smiled.

“If it was my son, I would probably take him hunting, I would take him fishing, then I’d see if he could swim,” Porterfield, wearing a MAGA hat, replied without hesitation. He continued to grin as the reporter, somewhat shocked, paused, then asked him to clarify. “I just want to make sure they could swim,” he repeated when questioned, continuing to grin.

TENNESSEE: Four Times Married Alleged Adulterer Files Bill To Ban Same-Sex Couples From Adoption Services

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/02/tennessee-four-times-married-alleged-adulterer-files-bill-to-ban-same-sex-couples-from-adoption-services/

Hensley has been divorced four times. In 2015 his most recent ex-wife took out an order of protection against him after she claimed he deliberately hit her twice with his car.

There’s also this charming tidbit via Wikipedia: “For several years, Hensley attempted to pass a bill allowing college counselors to refuse to serve LGBT students who are considering suicide. This bill was eventually signed into law in 2016.”

Juicy un-Christian fuckery details (his cousin!) are at the second link above. Hensley was also the sponsor of Tennessee’s infamous “Don’t Say Gay” bill and authored a bill which would have declared children conceived via artificial insemination to be illegitimate.

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

 “He definitely was a Trump supporter who was very angry with Obama’s policies, and he kept on repeating it after he was caught that he hated Obama and Obama ruined the country,” Buzzetti said.
