Now, I know that this blog is in no way affiliated with a party, stance, or political leaning, and is purely focused on secularism. With that being said, the gay marriage debate is quite relevant because of it’s opponents and their reasoning for such opposition. So unless you have another reason besides it’s religious repercussions, don’t be offended by gay marriage.

I really tried not to laugh… but I just couldn’t help it.
Oh no! Not evolution! How could you teach such a reasonable, scientifically proven, verifiable piece of garbage? Anything else!

At a Texas High School, Saying ‘Atheist’ Could Disrupt the Learning Process
While we’re on the subject of the challenges high school atheists are up against, theSecular Student Alliance group at La Porte High School in Texas wanted to put up flyers advertising their group. To make that happen, the school administration had to approve the design (a standard procedure at high schools).
When they submitted a design for approval, this is the message they got back from the principal.
The principal’s note at the top — in reference to the definition of an atheist — reads:
Will not allow this because it could disrupt the educational process at LPHS
Keep in mind they didn’t say, “God is evil” or “Religion is for fools” or anything designed to evoke a negative reaction from other students. They just flat out wrotewhat an atheist is. They said it wasn’t a bad word. They said atheists don’t believe in god. And yet, the principal thinks that could hurt the education process.
Someone please explain to me how that could be disruptive…
Makes me want to start an SSA at my school, with even more provocative graphics. Maybe an excerpt from the Bible? That would be pretty good.
