Creationist group: Kansas schools are indoctrinating students into atheism by teaching them ‘science’

Published

on

Kansas educators are on the defensive for teaching science in science classes, with a pro-creationist group accusing them of “indoctrinating” children into an “atheistic faith-based doctrine.”

The Kansas State Board of Education is defending its curriculum, which teaches evolution and climate change in primary school classes, against the legal challenge from Citizens for Objective Public Education, an organization claiming the educational standards endorse a “non-theistic world view,” reports the Topeka Capital Journal. COPE claims the standards violate first and fourteenth amendment rights of “parents, students and taxpayers.”

The case was thrown out in December but the decision to do so is currently being appealed.

COPE asserts the state board of education is “indoctrinating” school children to accept an “atheistic faith-based doctrine” that “holds that explanations of the cause and nature of natural phenomena may only use natural, material or mechanistic causes, and must assume that supernatural and teleological or design conceptions of nature are invalid,” according to their website.

According to COPE’s website, the lawsuit alleges:

…that the Policy explicitly and implicitly seeks to establish a non-theistic religious worldview by leading students to ask “ultimate religious questions” like “where do we come from?” Rather than objectively informing children of the actual state of our scientific knowledge about these questions in an age-appropriate manner, the [Framework and Standards] lead them “to answer the questions with only materialistic/atheistic answers.”

COPE filed its initial lawsuit in 2013, but U.S. District Judge Daniel Crabtree dismissed it, saying it lacked legal standing, the Capital Journal reports.

Kansas educational board officials say COPE is grossly mischaracterizing the standards as atheistic, asserting in a Monday court filing that they simply establish “‘performance expectations’ for what students should know and be able to do at each grade level,” the Capital Journal reports.

Trump tries to change the subject by blaming Obama — then accidentally admits he’s putting kids in ‘cages’

Published

on

President Donald Trump was the target of a Democratic press conference with four Congresswomen of color who were calling him out for racist tweets telling them to go back to their countries.

The women attacked every policy that Trump seems to be losing on. Trump seemed to try and pivot to another issue entirely, blaming former President Barack Obama for building the cages that he's putting children in after he takes them from their parents.

The Obama Administration built the Cages, not the Trump Administration! DEMOCRATS MUST GIVE US THE VOTES TO CHANGE BAD IMMIGRATION LAWS.

Trump goes off on ‘socialist, communist’ rant saying Democrats are ‘pro Al-Qaeda’

Published

on

President Donald Trump took his racist comments even further Monday afternoon, saying that Democrats are now pro-terrorism.

"We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!" Trump ranted. "It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country. They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, “some people did something.” Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more. Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!"

‘Bond is dead’: White dudes flip out over casting of a black woman as next Agent 007

Published

on

On Monday, the Daily Beast reported that the new 007 -- the special agent in the James Bond series -- will be portrayed by the black actress Lashana Lynch.

The announcement set off predictably racist and sexist reactions.

Perhaps the most prominent right-winger to voice his displeasure was Ben Shapiro, who complained that it didn't make sense for Bond to be a woman because of the character's signature seduction moves.

"Bond is about the guns and the girls," Shapiro said, noting that a woman in a seductive role was not realistic.
