Speling iz ignst mah belivs!

(via RM) Missouri has passed a law that says "no student shall be compelled to perform or participate in academic assignments or educational presentations that violate his or her religious beliefs."

Here are some comments people have made on the law:
  • Don't pray in my school and I won't think in your church.
  • This is the only country, aside from the Ayatollahs, in which a bunch of right-wing ignorant hypocrites are able to dictate whether a student should know the truth, or believe in legends.
  • Yes, lets get rid of math and science and medicine too. None of that is in the bible either. Why bother with science and facts when we have a magic book which has all the answers. Let take all technology away from you Godly folk and let your superstitious nonsense rule.
  • C'mon guys, Mississippi has OWNED the bottom of the educational achievement ranks for ages. I think it's only fair that Missouri should have a shot at it.
  • Are religion majors to study only their own religion?
But I prefer Calvin's interpretation:


Bottom Line: You cannot legalize ignorance, just as you cannot plead ignorance of the law as a defense. OTOH, you can make a damned fool of yourself without resorting to government interference.
