Religiously poisoned teachers aiming to ruin young minds are, of necessity, bullshitters. But most of them aren’t especially good at it, and when taking up an indefensible position it’s generally a good idea to have loads of high-quality bullshit at the ready.
In Bloomfield, New Mexico, a publicly funded home-school operation has apparently been using Christian curriculum materals for the past 11 years. Recently, the state education secretary stepped in and said “knock it off, this is illegal.” Here’s a story about it, newspaper and here’s a complaint from the usual lying suspects.
There’s really not much mystery here. From the Las Cruces Sun article:
“Religion is not incorporated in my classroom.”
From the OneNewsNow.com shitburst:
“Are there references to the Bible, to God in the materials? Yes, there are,” Harper explains. “You know, there might be a story about Jonah that the kids have to write. But as far as in the classroom, is it a place where we expound and preach and have worship or any of that? That does not go on in the classroom.”
Hmm. I may be slow, but I’m having a hard time reconciling these two quotes. Granted, I have no knowledge of what actually goes on in her classroom, and maybe there’s no genuine Christian slant. But I’ll go out on a limb and propose that Ms. Harper is a lying fucking twit, because she simply sees no problem with such a slant, laws be damned.
Finally, from the Web site of A Beka Books, the provider of the verboten “teaching” materials:
Our skilled researchers and writers do not paraphrase progressive education textbooks and add Biblical principles; they do primary research in every subject and look at the subject from God’s point of view. Of course, the most original source is always the Word of God, the only foundation for true scholarship in any area of human endeavor. Thus our publications are built upon the firm foundation of Scriptural truth.
Sure, no problem at all with using taxpayer money to fill kids’ minds with bullshit.
I think that liars for Jesus often don’t even know when they’re lying. They’ve been so pumped full of dishonesty from an early age that propagating it is the most honest thing they know. This makes them a menace, and I’m glad that Secretary Garcia stepped in and did her part to stave off the indoctrination of young minds with arrant lies and foolishness,
