Rob Standridge, a Republican state senator, introduced a bill that would
allow
people to sue teachers for taking an anti-religious perspective

Oklahoma state Sen. Rob Standridge, a Republican, has introduced a bill that
would allow people to sue teachers if they offer an opposing view toward
religious beliefs held by students.

*In the Students’ Religious Belief Protection Act, teachers can be fined a
minimum
of $10,000 “per incident, per individual,” and the fines have to be paid from
personal resources. If the teacher can’t pay the fine, they would be fired
under
this act, according to The Independent.

)

* It will also allow parents to demand the removal of any books perceived as
anti-religious. This includes topics like evolution, the big bang theory
and even
birth control.

* Per Forbes, the bill does not specify what “deeply held beliefs” are but
it is
bound to change how subjects like history, science and health are taught.

Currently, the bill has no sponsors and has been referred to the Senate
Education Committee. If passed, this act, which has been referred to as
“necessary for the preservation of the public peace,” will take effect
immediately.

I want a machine I can keep in my garage and, oh,
once a week maybe, tune in to any one person in
the world and then they are struck by lightning.

I suppose eventually someone would find this message
and figure out that it could be me doing it and not God -
but until then... Also: I don't have a garage.

You can buy a shed or build a lean-to next to your house.

It's because the teachers are lbgtq socialist atheist propagandists, trying to disown the kids from their parents.

Perhaps it would be better for teachers to be able to offer opposing views toward evolutionary theory. Got your stake handy?

The problem was already identified by Mark Twain.

Ain't Distributed Right"

Keep up your good works, and rectify the situation,

Yes, of course. That was one of the reasons for its popularity.

But you are right, it is un-American.

The ultimate American way will be shooting on sight,
