Ohio Republicans introduce bill that would allow students to answer questions on tests incorrectly, so long as the reason was religion.

I know what you are thinking, but no this is not an article from The Onion. 

But I really wish that it was.

Courtesy of WKRC:

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.

    Be nice if we could take our education out of the right and lefts hand and actually taught them things they would need in life. Ben Franklin got his entire education from a dictionary. But yeay, we are screwed. They want a dumber population. Easier to rule.

    “I know nothing.” – “I love the poorly educated”
    The American Party originated in 1849. Its members strongly opposed immigrants and followers of the Catholic Church.

    The majority of white Americans followed Protestant faiths. Many of these people feared Catholics because members of this faith followed the teachings of the Pope. The Know-Nothings feared that the Catholics were more loyal to the Pope than to the United States. More radical members of the Know-Nothing Party believed that the Catholics intended to take over the United States of America.

      That argument was made against John F Kennedy, that the Pope would tell him what to do. A variation of the same fear against Mitt Romney and a Mormon president.

    How will they feel about the earth being carried on the back of a giant turtle?
