Rep. Valarie Hodges, R-Watson, says she had no idea that Gov. Bobby Jindal’s overhaul of the state’s educational system might mean taxpayer support of Muslim schools.

“I actually support funding for teaching the fundamentals of America’s Founding Fathers’ religion, which is Christianity, in public schools or private schools,” the District 64 Representative said Monday.

“I liked the idea of giving parents the option of sending their children to a public school or a Christian school,” Hodges said.

Hodges mistakenly assumed that “religious” meant “Christian.”

HB976, now signed into law as Act 2, proposed, among other things, a voucher program allowing state educational funds to be used to send students to schools run by religious groups.

I'm going to convert to one of the voucher religions as soon as this bullshit goes into place.

I suggest that all Americans do the same. (you dont have to be serious about it, just pretend)

All of the sudden, NOBODY is funding this stupid law, and it will fall apart.

“I actually support funding for teaching the fundamentals of America’s Founding Fathers’ religion, which is Christianity, in public schools or private schools,” the District 64 Representative said Monday.

"As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion"

"

"I have examined all the known superstitions of the world and I do not find

in our particular superstition of Christianity one redeeming feature. They

are all alike founded on fables and mythology. Millions of innocent men,

women, and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been

burnt, tortured, fined, and imprisoned. What has been the effect of this

coercion? To make one half the world fools and the other half hypocrites; to

support roguery and error all over the earth."

"Christianity...(has become) the most perverted system that ever shone on

man...Rogueries, absurdities and untruths were perpetrated upon the

teachings of Jesus by a large band of dupes and imposters led by Paul, the

first great corruptor of the teachings of Jesus."

"The doctrine of the divinity of Jesus is made a convenient cover for

absurdity."

- Sincerely, our founding fathers.

Of course, we know that the most influential founding fathers were all deists or atheists. This is fact.

My favorite? Thomas Paine, since we all read Common Sense in school.

"It is the duty of every true Deist to vindicate the moral justice of God

against the evils of the Bible."

Is the ultimate goal for religious conservatives to eliminate funding for public schools?

"Where did they come up that public education and bigger education bureaucracies was the rule in America? Parents educated their children, because it’s their responsibility to educate their children."

"Yes the government can help," Mr. Santorum added. "But the idea that the federal government should be running schools, frankly much less that the state government should be running schools, is anachronistic."

"For many, the regressive belief in superstitions and miracles is an escape from the hardships of life. Once trapped into irrationalism, they become more incapable of mastering reality. It is a vicious circle, like an addiction. They become vulnerable to exploitation by astrologers, godmen, dubious pseudo-psychologists, corrupt politicians, and the whole mega-industry of irrationalism"
