Baptist Oklahomans (40%) have a big problem with the realization that Catholic public school teachers (10%) ate going to be teaching The Bible to their kids in their public schools...

And, Oklahoma Methodists (14%) are equally appalled that Baptists teachers are going to be teaching The Bible to their kids in their school!

What could possibly go wrong?

In my opinion this is a very public threat being made against all Oklahoma public schools and all public school teachers.  What say ye all?

Perhaps he needs to prove god even exists before we start legislating? 

Something something 1st Amendment.

I think the first lesson should be from this:

Your stature is like that of the palm,
     and your breasts   like clusters of fruit.
I said, “I will climb the palm tree;
     I will take hold of its fruit.”

Wouldn't want the kids to know how to prevent pregnancy.  Go ye forth and multiply, and all that jizz.  I mean jazz.

Next lesson - Lot and daddy's little girls.

Exactly, the internet can’t teach kids anything.
