 Rolling back theocracy

A federal judge today ordered the removal of stickers placed in high school biology textbooks that call evolution "a theory, not a fact," saying they were an unconstitutional endorsement of religion.

Six parents of students and the American Civil Liberties Union had challenged the stickers in court, arguing they violated the constitutional separation of church and state: "The Cobb County school board is doing more than accommodating religion," Manely, the attorney for the parents, argued during the trial. "They are promoting religious dogma to all students."

I think Government should get out of the education business anyway. They do a crappy job of it, if your going to do someting poorly just don't do it. And for those who think they can make public schools teach some type of religion, I think they are nuts. Why would you want public schools to teach religion? They can't even teach kids to read or do math properly. If you want your kids to get a good quality religion based education pay for it and stop whining. Will someone just shut them up?

On a side note I like the little car sticker thing on the site, I hate those stupid ass things and they are selling them everywhere to every fool who thinks the war is great. They shouldn't read "Proud to be American" they should read "lucky to be American". I put up with them 'cuz everyone has to read my Pro-life bumperstickers.
