And yet there's more!

Last year seven-year-old Marcus McLaurin of Lafeyette, Louisiana, informed a fellow 2nd grade classmate in the recess line that he had two mothers. "Gay is when a girl likes another girl," he reportedly said. The teacher, Terry Bethea, promptly sent Marcus to the principal's office. "I sed bad wurds," Marcus wrote on an explanation form for his mother Sharon Huff. The next day Marcus was forced to repeatedly write "I will never use the word 'gay' in school again," during a behavioral clinic at 6:45 am. In a surreal twist, the teacher is now suing the mother for $50,000 in defamation damages. Fittingly, "union, justice, and confidence" is Louisiana's state motto.

Funny, no one is mentioning how this teacher should be brought up on charges of neglect for having a pupil who spells as badly as this one does, perhaps he was fine until she began fouling his classmates minds with homophobic rhetoric...

Goodbye abstinence and homophobia, hello creationism. The Dover Area High School in southern Pennsylvania recently became the first public
school in America to mandate the teaching of "intelligent design," informing biology students of the "gaps/problems" in the theory of evolution. "Evolution--is that Darwin theory?" asked a shocked 16-year-old. "I don't know what he's thinking." Intelligent design sidesteps the Supreme Court's 1987 ban on teaching creationism in public schools by attacking evolution without mentioning the Lord .. For a sign of things to come, click here to see how God created the exploding giraffe.

Don't worry, things are even worse abroad. A startling report from an esteemed Pentagon advisory council sharply rebukes President Bush's belief that freedom is on the march. "American direct intervention in the Muslim World has paradoxically elevated the stature of and support for radical Islamists, while diminishing support for the United States to single-digits in some Arab societies," the report found. "Muslims do not 'hate our freedom,' but rather they hate our policies." Let's hope they adapt an animated kids version of the report: that way Bush might read it.
