Re: Bush Endorses Teaching 'Intelligent Design' Theory in ScAug 6th, 2005
When I was in grade school there was a religion class offered for the students. We didn't really have to take it if we didn't want to, and we could learn all about the love thy neighbour creationism and other funky bible stuff. At least that way the religion is kept separate from the other scientific classes.
But I guess if Bush is eroding the separation of church and state separating classes like that would be the first to go then.
Here's a funny article by the Rude Pundit with his view on Bush's intelligent design ideas:
The Stupiding of America (external - login to view)
It kinda goes like this:
George W. Bush wants America to be stupid. When he said in an interview with Texas newspaper reporters that "intelligent design" (also known as the theory that "the earth and everything on it was made by a magical sky wizard when that big f*cker snapped his fingers and thus created humans, buzzards, ebola, and rats") ought to be taught along with evolution in public schools, the President of the United States may as well have said, "I want all American children to be stupid, so f*ckin' stupid and desperate and superstitious that the Republican party and its fundamentalist crotch-sniffers can manipulate them into dicking themselves over more often than Ron Jeremy f*cking himself."
