Religion and Schools: One Man's Voice

The next time I hear someone spouting the great idea that religion/creationism/the Bible should be taught in schools, I'll just think about these words:
Secular schools can never be tolerated because such a school has no religious instruction and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character and training must be derived from faith.
Adolf Hitler said those words. Adolf frakking Hitler. Not some guy running around handing out hugs, but the guy who waged war against the world, killed off millions of Jews and other folks for no real reason at all, and did a lot of other terrible things, or had other people do those things for him.

Yeah, because that's the kind of world I want to live in...

  1. Mussolini made the trains run on time. Musso-frackin-lini!
    Every day that the Metra shows up when I expect it to, I breathe silent curses into the air.
    But at least some folks know how to be good people - the CTA's trains and buses are completely unpredictable. Thank goodness.
