US creationists fiddle school funding

Postby Brian Jordan » Mon Apr 23, 2012 6:28 pm

School vouchers enable federally-funded religious schools to teach creationism rather than evolution as science, without hindrance from the government.
Seemingly with Romney's blessing. I thought the US had refused to have a voucher system, for the very reason of church-state separation. Times, it would seem, they are a changing. :(

This is another case of nasty sectarianism rearing its ugly head in the USA.

Segregation in another form.

It's going to rip the USA apart sooner or later.
