You will love this one. That headline is an actual quote from an Odessa, Texas school official crowing in an email about using curriculum which clearly violates the First Amendment. Shannon Baker, the ECISD director of curriculum and instruction sent out an email after a 4-2 vote approving the curriculum:

YES, WE ARE USING NCBCPS : ) : ) : ) ! HA! Take that you dang heathens!

Now, let’s just put aside the utter irony of that statement. No, scratch that. I love irony. Shannon is calling those who would protect education and teach science heathens, while defending the snake charmers and the dinosaur riders? Can’t get away from that irony.

You can, however, help. Join PFAW in their fight to protect the separation of church and state. Do not let the heathens win! This is not an isolated incident.

    Is it at all ironic that the school’s webpage features a recent dinosaur activity? Will there be protests at the opening of “Evan Almighty” because it’s offensive to evangelicals beliefs about creationism and Noah?

  • #1: Colossal Fossils. Good eye. You must be a lawyer or something. That or you have a military eye for attention to detail. Good catch.

    Qualifies for irony in my book…unless they were talking about Adam riding on one and dating them back 3,000 years.

    ?When the Cenozoic dawned they were tired and beat. They yawned big yawns and put up their feet.
    And they?re still sleeping, snoring deep in the swamp. But they?ll be back?next DINOSAUR STOMP!

    I bet it pains them to have to teach the kids:

    It covers the 65.5 million years since the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event at the end of the Cretaceous that marked the demise of the last non-avian dinosaurs and the end of the Mesozoic Era. The Cenozoic era is ongoing.

  • I saw this sign in a yard near my house…

    It says “GOD-CENTERED CLASSROOMS”.

    Note: the rest of the yard and house were covered with jesus-related crap.

    Thank GOD for Christian homeschoolers!
