Not to Give Crazy Arizona Lawmakers Any Ideas, But Here You Go

Posted By on Thu, Aug 9, 2012 at 10:00 AM

Now that Arizona allows Bible classes in public schools, maybe it's a good idea to think about what that curriculum could look like.

Let's hope that no one takes an interest in any of the textbooks used in Louisiana voucher schools. The folks at Mother Jones looked at those schools and their textbooks from such great education publishers as the Bob Jones University Press.

Lessons include how dinosaurs and humans hung out; dragons were real; God used the Trail of Tears to bring Indians to Jesus; Slave masters were cool; the KKK was A-OK; Mark Twain and Emily Dickinson were hacks; gay people "have no more claims to special rights than child molesters or rapists;" and globalization is a precursor to rapture.
