Parents Pull Son Out of New Hampshire School Over Assigned Book That Refers to Jesus as a Socialist

Parents Pull Son Out of New Hampshire School Over Assigned Book That Refers to Jesus as 'Wine-Guzzling Vagrant and Socialist' - FoxNews.com
A New Hampshire couple has pulled their son out of his local high school after the teen was assigned a book that refers to Jesus Christ as a "wine-guzzling vagrant and precocious socialist." Aimee Taylor says her oldest son, 16-year-old Jordan Henderson, was required to read "Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America," this fall for Bedford High School's personal finance class. The book is a first-person account of author Barbara Ehrenreich's attempts to make ends meet while working minimum wage jobs in Florida, Maine and Minnesota. . . . [The father also says,] "…These words are illegal to say on national TV and radio in this country and yet here they are in this book."

Texas Pastor to publicly shame local businesses that aren't enthusiastic enough about Xmas

What a bully. Also, the Republicans in the Texas House also just decided that only a Christian is fit for their top seat, despite the fact that they chose a jewish Republican for the honor. They asked him to either convert or step down. First Baptist's Robert Jeffress to Publicly Shame Stores That Don't Celebrate Christmas - Dallas News - Unfair Park
First Baptist Church of Dallas sends word that this morning on KCBI-FM (90.9), Robert Jeffress announced the launch of a website -- Grinch Alert -- "dedicated to showcasing businesses that do not show outward signs of supporting Christmas." In other words: He's declaring war on those who've declared war on Christmas. That's very Gretchen Carlson of him. The mayor's pastor is asking folks to submit names of stores to the naughty and nice lists, which the station will read on the air every morning. Says the podcast of this morning's broadcast, it all started last week with the public shaming of a bank in Southlake that decided not to put up a Christmas tree in its lobby; says the morning-show host, the bank has since changed its mind due to the divine intervention.

Kentuckey's Democratic Governor wants to spend taxpayer money on a Creationist musuem

I can't see how this *doesn't* violate the establishment clause. The museum will feature a replica of the mythical Noah's Ark, filled with baby giraffes. ThinkProgress -- Kentucky Creationism Theme Park Set To Open In 2014 Will ‘Include Dinosaurs’
Kentucky’s Democratic governor Steve Beshear announced yesterday that a creationism theme park — dubbed “Ark Encounter” — is expected to open in the state in 2014. The governor boasted that the park would have a $250 million impact on the local economy annually. The park “will feature a 500-foot-long wooden replica of Noah’s Ark containing live animals such as juvenile giraffes.” The project is a collaboration with a non-profit organization Answers in Genesis, which runs the Creation Museum in Boone County, KY. The Nation’s Chris Hayes noted on MSNBC last night that Answers in Genesis “is dedicated to portraying the Bible’s view of history. Among their claims, the Earth was created in six days, just 6,000 years ago, and that at one time, man and velociraptor co-existed peacefully.” (Of course, dinosaurs went extinct nearly 65 million years ago.)

Preacher demands his church members give him their bank routing and account numbers

This is amazing. And recent. This isn't some crackpot moneygrabber from the 80s, this is now. Keep this horseshit in mind when you read about Hitchens and Blair debating whether religion is force for good in the world. "How many of you are showing up and expecting a blessing without doing [giving bank info]? You're wasting your time and God's time."
