Mad [@] Libs: 'School indoctrination' edition

by Jeremy Hooper

The template:

201001271250-1

The execution:

As a Christian, I believe our faith requires us to stand up for those who are being bullied or harmed, including people who are ridiculed because they identify as homosexual. I believe the Bible teaches us to stand up for those who are being physically threatened or emotionally abused, even if we don't agree with their viewpoint, actions or beliefs. I think that students should be taught that insults and demeaning language are wrong for any reason whatsoever.

However, I also firmly believe that God has given parents the primary responsibility to protect and guard their children—and that this is a right upheld by our Constitution. Our Constitution also guarantees that our religious freedoms will be respected and not violated by government institutions. However, GLSEN's resources and lessons too often risk violating these principles by crossing the line into pure indoctrination regardless of whether parents like it or not, teaching advocacy for things like gay marriage and homosexuality—and encouraging classroom discussions that are obviously designed to undermine socially conservative and faith-based perspectives.

That kind of political agenda does not belong in taxpayer-funded classrooms.

If you make the template text friendly we could have some fun with it.

The Cults of Jesus.... What can be said?
They spent $43 million dollars on Hate in California, have subverted the Republican Party to the Republican Cults of Jesus Theocracy, have completely removed "Christ" from Christian, are certified Cults of Jesus because there is nothing Christian about them, Are as Barney Frank describes: "Mam, arguing with you is like talking to the kitchen table."

I confront this constant and without fear through the use of all the above.
Show me a miracle of God's magic healing; does an amputee ever grow a new arm or leg?
I know you are a Creationist, Theocrat because that's what your Pope, Preacher or Elder has told you to think. All these work too.

"people who are ridiculed because they identify as homosexual"

hmmmm... I don't anyone who has been "ridiculed" because they "identify as homosexual". But I do know those who have been beaten because they were percieved to be gay.

But FOTH is all about word-spin.
