    You aren't seriously denying the consistent liberal slant in academics though. Seriously?

    You are so dishonest it is not even funny any more. This is a lie.

    I was talking about in this thread. My direct responce was...

    #1 No one has said America was founded on Christianity, not a soul. - http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1058765439

    Now please point out how refering to people responding in this thread about this country being founded on Chrstianity has anything even remotly to do with what you just accused me of? Here let me help you...

    Nothing.

    You have got to be kidding.

    You broght it up, not me...

    There are four references to a "deity" found in the Declaration of Independence: "Nature's God," "Creator," "Supreme Judge," and "Divine Providence." That's it. - http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1058765301

    Then you tried to change the subject to the Constitution.

    Refusal to acknowledge the role of religion in the works of the founding fathers. Harsher grading on "politically incorrect" work despite it being accurate. Injection of anti-American and anti-Christian rhetoric into lesson plans. Bias in presenting the civil rights movement and who was behind it. Injection of racially divisive rhetoric into lesson plans.

    I could go on but that's enough to start with.

    Well... 9 people on the Texas Board Believe that.

    But the rest of us know this country, its Constitution was based on the Roman Republic with influence from Jonh Locke and the Mangna Carta.

    By the rest of us, I mean, anyone who took a U.S. History class. But I guess, students taking U.S. History in texas high schools will get the fringe-right fantasy version.

    I think that teachers may tend to be more liberal than not, but not that curriculums are. They may be, but I have seen no solid proof or even strong evidence of that. Further, it is irrelevant to my position, which is that basing textbooks and curriculums around political bias is wrong, no matter who does it.
