Remember, this is the same state who allows supernatural explanations for scientific events.

    A reputation that is unwarranted. The whole debate began when the state BOE elected to let the individual school districts decide what would be taught in their own schools on the subject, rather than dictated to them by Topeka. The press got hold of this and, as usual, wrote the story they wanted with the facts that suited their preconceived notions and the rest is history.

    I think this is a fair point. People should be allowed their defense and if they want to make a "manslaughter" claim they should be allowed for it. Now the evidence against it is rather clear cut, I don't know how they could even make a manslaughter claim. But whatever. Throw the dude in jail, he belongs there, and that's that.

    Unwarranted? You just supported exactly what I said. Letting individual school districts decide what will be taught in their "own" publicly funded schools is conservative double talk for being too backwards to have a real curriculum that is up to any kind of standards. If you want to pretend that this is some local issue that nobody else understands, that is fine. But don't come around here telling us that Kansas isn't backwards even though they are the state who allows supernatural explanations for scientific events.

    Sorry to interrupt your bigoted diatribe with facts. I mean, it's not like I grew up there and was living there at the time or anything.

    I will remember to avoid confusing you with facts in the future.

    When you present any facts talk. Until then. You are just defending the backwards mentality of Kansas. Not surprised considering you're a Libertarian.

    I presented facts. You presented ad hominem. Learn the difference.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
