TEACHING CHILDREN FACTS IS FASCIST

Another uncomprehending twitterface sounds off about the "unfairness" of the Kitzmiller v. Dover decision in The Napa Valley News, complaining that a failure to introduce Intelligent Design creationism into science classes constitutes government-powered mind control.

That a roiling wave of backlash aimed at Judge Jones would arise from the stupurous religious community following the smackdown in Pennsylvania last month was a given, but it's still disheartening to see the extent to which these people just don't fucking get it. They literally don't. Their brains are fucked up beyond all reason thanks to the religion byrus. I'd pity them if they weren't such aggressively ignorant shitabouts.

The author trots out the usual foolishness, perhaps not realizing he's the nine millionth yammerhead to advance it: Students should be aware of "differing viewpoints" regarding evolution in order to properly round out their education; that some people don't believe in evolution means that it's wrong to "indoctrinate" children with it; church-state separation is a myth anyway (the writer shows his true colors here); there's no way life emerged spontaneously from a mud puddle (that no one has claimed that it did, and that this is irrelevant to evolution anyway, doesn't faze this jabbering cuntbrain). He writes:

"Unfortunately, Judge Jones apparently doesn't understand the foregoing, and he decided that even a brief mention of intelligent design violates 'the constitutional separation of church and state.'"

Hold on, asshole. The statement that the since-deposed creationists on the Dover School Board insisted should be read at the beginning of all evolution-related classes was not merely "a brief mention of intelligent design." It was out-and-out bullshit -- just the kind of lies dinkwaggling pundits like Mr. Protz surely deems appropriate. It read, in part: "Because Darwin's Theory is a theory, it is still being tested as new evidence is discovered. The Theory is not a fact. Gaps in the Theory exist for which there is no evidence." Right. Now pinch yourselves and wake up, fuckheads.

Mr. Protz's conclusion?

"So what's the solution? Simply teach the known facts, but in government institutions don't insist on or advocate a particular interpretation of the past, whether evolution or creation."

Well, that's funny; I always thought that teaching evolution was teaching facts, but then again I don't have my lips around Christ's shrunken, pierced and bleeding cock.

Here's a "different viewpoint" for you, Mr. Protz: Take your religious claptrap and jam it in your fuckin' ass. Don't complain about unfair use of taxpayer funds when your precious church remains exempt from paying them. The Bible is the most popular book in the world; I'm sure schoolchildren and their parents can track one down during non-school hours if so inclined, and every nuttyfuck in America is free to place their warped offspring in religious schools if they wish.

No one is denying the Bible-whackers of society their right to believe in faeries, sprites, skygods, ghosts, goblins or the power of faith healing. This doesn't mean that science classes should be turned into a free-for-all wherein every clamsmacker with a pet myth can to waste time giving his version of special creation. Science classes are and should remain fora for the presentation of facts as scientists understand them. The religiously inclined are certainly free to leave shaking their heads in consternation and bury their brooding heads in their simpletonian religious texts, but their never-ending interference in curriculum planning is tiresome, counterproductive, and further evidence that rigorous Christianity is essentially a widespread neurotropic virus that renders its often-intelligent victims, like our fine columnist Mr. Protz here, unable to dabble iin anything resembling reason when it comes to collisions of science and faith, which inevitably produce the same objective winner every time.
