TYT: Christianity Aggressively Pushed in Texas Schools



"Students in Texas' public schools are still learning that the Bible provides scientific evidence that the Earth is 6,000 years old, that astronauts have discovered "a day missing in space in elapsed time" that affirms biblical stories of the sun standing still and moving backwards, and that the United States was founded as a Christian nation based on biblical Christian principles."*

Texas public schools are teaching creationism in schools. It's not a balanced religious studies class either- strictly Christian lessons are being taught, even pushed in the schools. How is this teaching allowable? Would a similarly-structured Islam class be okay? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.

1. Astronauts found a day missing in space in elapsed time? WTF?

Sad thing is, school textbooks used in Texas quickly spread to the rest of the nation......

2. That statement doesn't parse, does it?

These must be textbooks written by grade school dropouts.

Dumb!

3. The King James version of the Holy Bible was recently rewritten; the entire work was written

by extremist that did not believe in the written word of God but believed in their humanist selves.

Which Bible is being used to teach Electives? The State Board of Equation approves the Curriculum Objectives, but a teacher can interpret and use their own teaching methodology in the State of Texas.

4. I've got some relation in Michigan that would feel quite at home in Texas.

I'm glad I only see them on rare occasion. It's always "Gods Will" or "In Jesus' name".......

5. I did what Cenk recommended and read the Bible cover to cover.

 

Nothing struck me as profound or worth the effort of reading except for Jesus Sermon On the Mount. Revelations made no sense at all. The writing in the Bible did not strike me as "high art" or poetic either. What I concluded is simple, religion is a figment of the mind and spirituality is of the heart.
