I know what you are thinking, but no this is not an article from The Onion.
But I really wish that it was.

Ohio lawmakers are weighing in on how public schools can teach things like evolution.
The Ohio House on Wednesday passed the “Student Religious Liberties Act.” Under the law, students can’t be penalized if their work is scientifically wrong as long as the reasoning is because of their religious beliefs.
Instead, students are graded on substance and relevance.
Every Republican in the House supported the bill. It now moves to the Republican-controlled Senate.
Of course this comes from the Republicans.
They will not be happy until every person in this country has been dumbed down to a level which determines they will continue to support GOP policies even if they are detrimental to their health, safety, or community interests for their entire adult lives.
I can just see now how the students might turn this ridiculous policy idea to their advantage.
“No Mrs. Frankenheimer my answer on the thermodynamic causes of volcanic eruptions is not wrong because everyboy knows that they are caused when the goddes Pele is unsatisdied with the virgin sacrifice. And don’t try to corrrect me Mrs. F, I know my religious right to be totally fucking wrong about this.”
I truly worry for the future of this country.
