Cruey said his daughter is receiving counseling and has been pulled from the class after seeing images of beheadings, children being injured and dead bodies interspersed with readings from the Koran.

Haven't seen this posted, but it is not really "late breaking" news...

The universities may be bastions of liberal thought and free-thinking, but the elementary and high schools in this country have been taken over by the fundies.

2. Holy Shit
I say we just go back and pretend 1865 had a different outcome. Allow people about 6 months to decide where they want to live then build a fucking wall.

I've pretty much had it with these fundie fucks, if one of them ever showed my kid a film like this there would probably be a bit of an "altercation".

I have family in Somerset, and my ancestors helped to establish Pulaski co! I can not believe that they have turned into such fearful and ignorant people.There is no way to talk to them because they KNOW what is true(as far as they are concerned)
