Airhead religious wingnuts

No more church/state separation?
There's an AP story tonight on public schools that offer bible classes (!!!) to students. Remember that tired old nonsense about separation of church and state? Apparently it's not too important any more.

The great thing is that the brain-dead schools that offered these classes are canceling them because of the economy. Hooray! Anyway, the reason I'm writing about it is to share two funny excerpts:
"Some parents say they wish their districts had the Bible classes because children need to know how influential the text has been on literature and pop culture."
Huge effects on pop culture. It's odd how I can't even think of one. This was followed by a quote from a Christian wingnut parent:
"Whether you believe in God or not, it's still the word of God and kids need to have that experience."
Like I said the other day, these people haven't taken their brains out for a test drive, never mind used them on a regular basis. It's like they have cotton-candy inside their skulls. Phew.
