There's something seriously wrong when the catholic church's teaching on subject is more progressive than yours, you know?

Another article:
Whether this gambit will help move Louisiana from the bottom of math and science rankings in the country is unclear.
I can just picture the writer's face when she wrote that line.

But at least the pews never attend yoga!
I live in an extremely progressive state and we're 42nd in terms of state funding for education. Even the supreme court agrees our schools are underfunded. I think pretty much the entire country is an embarrassment these days.
I couldnt get through the whole article. I was laughing to hard!! So is Bobby Jindel backing this? If so I'm not surprised! He'll do anything to fit in with the "cool kids" and seem less Indian.

There is a very long list of Catholic scientists who have contributed to society in big ways. With the support of the hierarchy btw.
I went to a school that used that curriculum. It didn't make me believe in Nessie, hate Catholics, or not believe in evolution. I mostly just laughed at it because I knew that stuff was stupid.

If something sounded wonky, I'd go read some library books to find out more. Unfortunately, a lot of people aren't so interested in educating themselves so they probably do believe that nonsense.

He said his parents told him he couldn't go to regular school because other children were evil.

Intellectually repressing your kids is not a good thing. To me, it's much healthier to introduce your kids to controversial subjects in an environment where they feel safe enough to ask questions. Shutting them down and telling them they're bad for having any sort of curiosity about the world is ridiculous.
