Oh boy where to start. First of all these children are attending state supported religious schools through a voucher program. This kind of goofy religious pseudo scientific indoctrination is supported by taxes - government taxes - so much for separation of lunacy and government. If you called a school Hogwarts and purported to teach magic could you be part of the voucher program? How about a humanist school? You and I know there isn't a chance in hell.
Second - the outlandish claims made by creationists. Dinosaurs and men lived, and continue to, at the same time. The earth is 4,000 years old. The Loch Ness monster is an actual living dinosaur and scientists believe this to be true. Well manufacturing fairy tales out of nothing with no evidence save a book of stories is no basis for a coherent religion let alone a curriculum.
Lastly - what a terrible thing to do to children. Teaching them that monsters are real is a way to build character I suppose. They will end up believing Monsters Inc. is a documentary...hey they won't have nightmares. To give them such a distorted, false, twisted and dangerous worldview is just irresponsible. Oh and one more thing, you can call it religious freedom if you want to but it only works for one religion and belief system. And to call this mashup of loony nonsense a religion is a stretch too far.
Speaking of loony nonsense is anything more absurd than passing a law to ban talk of climate change? North Carolina has officially taken over the mantle of most batshit crazy legislature in the USA. What could possibly possess a group of elected people, probably many lawyers and successful business-people to stick their fingers in their ears and and say "LALALALALA...I can't hear you...LALALALALA...."? It's as if Peewee Herman has taken over the political process.
So what's a reasonable primate to do? Well one could go with the flow and have your astrological chart done, ask John Edward to contact all your dead relatives and invite them to Thanksgiving dinner, get your 'Nessie Lives' tshirt.... Me I am just going to stick my fingers in my ears and LALALALALA all the way down the Yellow Brick Road.
That's all I have for now.
