Bill promotes school religion at expense of education

http://www.edmondsun.com/opinion/local_story_067125346.html

The bill requires public schools to guarantee students the right to express their religious viewpoints in a public forum, in class, in homework and in other ways without being penalized. If a student’s religious beliefs were in conflict with scientific theory, and the student chose to express those beliefs rather than explain the theory in response to an exam question, the student’s incorrect response would be deemed satisfactory, according to this bill.
even as a christian....just wow

This is why we need to trust our education to the state. They say that it's good enough then dammit, it's good enough.

So if a kid sees
"Prove a² + b² = c²."

He could write "Because God invented mathematics."

And he'd be correct?

Holy fucknuggets.

i don't think thats exactly right, i think it has more to do with science and whether or not it conflicts with your beliefs.

If I was a student at that school, I'd put, "Goddidit." as the answer to every question on every test they gave me, and if any teacher gave me an F, I'd sue the school for denying me my rights to express my religious viewpoints.

The sad part... I'm sure I could find a lawyer willing to take my case.

As a Christian, I see this shit all the time. I do not understand why some people (creationists) can't accept the possibility that the Bible isn't supposed to be taken 100% literal. What if God's Day is a billion years, who are we to assume that something written by man is not inherently flawed? Something you read from 20 years ago let alone yesterday is flawed and biased, what about something written 5000-2000 years ago and translated/reworded countless amounts of time? This is why Christians and Republicans are labeled as ignorant, because of the select few assholes like this.

Went to school in Oklahoma. I don't ever remeber it being bad. But I was also one of the few kids that never went to church.

Oklahoma is known as the bible belt for a reason.

My last gf from oklahoma was from a huge bible beating family. Her mom thought god could fix everything if she would just pray. Like fix her husbands meth/gambling.alcohol problem. I didnt have the heart to tell her the truth.

Q. What makes rain?

A. When the angels in heaven see someone sinning by throwing trash from his car window, they cry.
Oklahoma just passed the nations first "Every Child Left Behind Act"
:haha7::haha7: to both of those.

I, too, am a Christian, and had no problem learning/regurgitating the scientific beliefs I was taught.

Just another reason why the Japanese will surpass us even further in Science.
