Texas schools board rewrites US history with lessons promoting God and guns | World news | The Guardian

One more for the “Against” column of my “Should I have kids?” list.

“We are fighting for our children’s education and our nation’s future,” Dunbar said. “In Texas we have certain statutory obligations to promote patriotism and to promote the free enterprise system. There seems to have been a move away from a patriotic ideology. There seems to be a denial that this was a nation founded under God. We had to go back and make some corrections.”

So, no new text books will omit references to the slave trade and Thomas Jefferson’s arguments in favor of separation of Church and State.

Which makes sense because, after all, Jefferson was a slave-owner.

I’m creating a new category for this one and I’m giong to call it WTF??!?
