I watched about 7 minutes before I burst a blood vessel.
Christians are imposing their world view on every level of society. They are going to win.
Christians are losing their younger generations:
Speaking of liberal defeatism, voter turnout at the election in question was only 34% -- and so-called "Progressives" turned out in numbers no greater than that. Where the hell were two out of three "Progressives" that day? What were they doing that was so important, they were willing to let their LGBT brethren and sistren get screwed over?
By my calculations, it would have taken a liberal turnout of like 70% or 75% to turn that election around, so I'm not surprised the good guys lost. What disappoints me is that "Progressives" didn't even put up a fight.
Luckily this is only being done in private schools that choose to teach this curriculum. The largest threat against rational thinking people is any attempt to screw with access to a decent public education.
Where the hell are politicians that aren't shitsucking Christians?
They don't exist.
Only vote for atheists or stop complaining that your kids are force fed mythology in school.
At 5 minutes in, they express pride that their math books don't teach set theory.
Why is set theory bad?
Oh God, I just looked it up. It's because set theory uses the Hebrew letter aleph, which Christians find scary.

Stars for evil.
Private schools produce higher GPAs because:
1 - They can toss out a low-grade student and keep their parents' money
2 - Corollary to the first statement, mommy and daddy get more involved in helping their kids earn good grades so they won't be out the money.
So Dubya and the GOP championed the whole school voucher bullshit while at the same time foisting "No Child Left Behind" on the nation. A big part of NCLB is standardized federal testing. If the kids don't pass, the school loses funding.
Now, look at the utter shit in those textbooks and tell me those kids would have been able to pass a standardized federal test.
Of course, NCLB only applied to PUBLIC schools. You know, schools funded with taxpayer dollars? Since the bible-thumper schools are PRIVATE, they're exempt, even though vouchers are an indirect means of taxpayer support.
It was a way to produce masses of poorly-educated morons and force me to help pay for this travesty. Fuck Dubya and fuck the assholes who put him into office twice.

On the subject of textbooks, the class of 2005 had economics books from when Reagan was in office!
TEABAGGERS, PAY YOUR FUCKING TAXES
sorry, magnet schools (damn auto correct wins again). A public school offering special instruction unavailable elsewhere, designed to attract a diverse student body. and yes i think they work better than the voucher program

I wasn't knocking private schools, necessarily. I was just saying the main reason most private schools produce higher GPAs is parental involvement. There's also smaller class sizes and higher-quality teaching tools.
What I object to is my tax dollars being diverted from public schools into the coffers of religious idiot factories.
i agree with that last one. i can happily say that in the catholic middle and high schools i went to religion was very much separated from any science or math classes.
