Democrats to Impose Religious Indoctrination
Alabama has the most interesting news stories I tell you. There was a bill to introduce a Bible course for public schools in Alabama. It wasn’t going to be mandatory, but offered as an elective. The oddest thing about this bill is that it had almost full support from the Democrats here in Alabama, and wasn’t passed only because of the state Republicans.
The odd part is this; if the Republicans would have introduced this bill, it would have made national news with headlines that read “Republicans to introduce Christian indoctrination in schools” or “Theocracy now; a republican view on education”. Yet this story hasn’t made the national news due to it being led by Democrats.(or more likely, no one really cares about Alabama politics).
My personal view on the whole things is that religion is better taught by parents or church leaders, not by city employees. I know that most people that read my site are all about putting prayer back into public schools. I just know that with all the different interpretations out there of the Bible, a course trying to teach it would cause more problems. There is a solution though, and one I think the state Republicans need to get started, have school vouchers so that everyone would be able to have a choice as to what type of education their child receives.
Discuss it in the comments.
Oh, and this was not funny. (Just thought I should tell people in case some one is out there laughing maniacally for no reason.)
