Fresh from disappearing minorities, including Thurgood Marshall and Caesar Chavez from textbook - The Texas Textbook Taliban is at it again…
This time trying to disappear one of the world’s major religions… Islam.
Textbooks May Be Too Pro-Islam, Anti-Christian, Texas State Education Board Says
Students in Texas may be getting a glorified view of Islam, according to some state education leaders who are pushing for a resolution that would denounce social studies textbooks as biased against Christianity.
Though the president of conservative-leaning Texas State Board of Educationsupports the measure as promotingreligious equality in schools, faith leaders and activists have condemned the board’s proposal as intolerant and anti-Muslim.
“It’s clearly just an attempt to propagandize the state’s student population against the faith of Islam,” said Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Washington D.C.-based Council on Islamic-American Relations. “Somehow they were getting too rosy a picture of Islam.”
The Texas Board of Dis-Education… A group of sanctimonious conservative twits taking child molestation to a whole new level.

Tavis interviews conservative darling and former member of the Dutch Parliament Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
Needless to say, Tavis questions and some of his statements have lit up the conservative and Tea Bagger world, who like their forbears in the American West views of Native Americans – “The only good Muslim is a dead Muslim”.
The transcript below is of the interview picked off a Tea Party site. Tavis’ comments (and questions) which seem to have gotten the conservative dander up are in bold.
SMILEY: When you were last here – I’m here every day – (laughter) when you were last here we were starting to have a conversation about your view of Christianity. We’ll come back to that a little bit later in the conversation because I want to pick up on that conversation. I’ve been waiting for months to continue that dialogue.
Before we do that, though, in this book, the new one, you say unapologetically and rather frankly that your mission here is to inform the West about the danger of Islam. What danger do we need to be made aware of? (more…)

Faux News Correspondent Brit Humes doubles down on his controversial statements that if Tiger Woods was a christian…
He wouldn’t have these bimbo problems.
Of course the recent scandals surrounding the “Christian Brotherhood” politicians such as Governor Mark Sanford, and Senator John Ensign makes a mockery of that.
Power indeed corrupts, absolutely.
The first question of course is – “WTF is Hume doing proselytizing while pretending to be a News Reporter?” Shades of the Taliban…
Now I’m likely going to piss a whole bunch of folks off with this – but I’m going to put it out there anyway.
One of the major problems in this country since the evangelical Christians aligned with the right in this country is they stopped being a religion…
And became a cult.
Now this isn’t in any way to excuse Tiger Wood’s despicable moral behavior.
