Oh my God, how far we have come!

Dan: Hard to believe, isn't it?

And the liberals who come to my blog keep trying to convince me that our government was secular and the founders mostly diests.

Joe, won't posting this diminish all your chances of being hired to teach history in a public school? :0)

Joe said...

Bryan: If invited to apply I won't and if hired, I won't show up for work.

Preach it, brother!

My 'sweet friend's husband' (see my latest post) was once a public school history teacher. He had to get out of it b/c he couldn't teach real history. He was chastised for being too...right.

Thank goodness he's now teaching in a private Christian school. At least a sliver of the population will get the benefit of his wisdom...
