Shadrack's Furnace

It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s ‘Bible Man’: Alabama School Board Makes Super-Bad Decision | Americans United:


Shadrack McGill, Anti-American  Religious Extremist

According to The Huntsville Times, Jackson County Schools Superintendent Ken Harding said, “We know it’s going to be a fight. But our constituents are pretty adamant about what they want for their children. Hopefully we can meet the law and keep the [Bible Man], too.”


State Sen. Shadrack McGill (R-Woodville) decided to weigh in as well. He said anybody who doesn’t like Bible Man should consider homeschooling and that the board’s decision is supported by a majority of the parents.


McGill also said that religion belongs in both public schools and other agencies of government.


“We were established to be a godly nation, a Christian nation,” McGill said, according to the Times. “We need God in government. We need God in the public school. The more we trend away from God, the more we suffer – morally and spiritually.”
"Hopefully ... "?! How about you "meet [sic] the law," first and let the churches worry about indoctrinating children for those parents who want their kids indoctrinated, that's what they're for.

" ...  [C]onsider homeschooling"?! No. Fuck you, Mr. McGill. Public schools are paid for by tax payers. We pay property tax, sales tax, state and federal income tax so our children can be educated, not so you can have some fuckwit preach at them. Imagine, Mr. McGill, if the school mandated kids were preached at from the Koran and indoctrinated into Islam. How pissed off that would make you, that's how pissed of I get when when people in authority in public institutions try to use their position to establish religion, any religion, on my dime. I can't believe someone so unfit for public office managed to get elected as a State Senator; you clearly aren't fit to be elected to pooper-scooper duty in the public parks.

"[R]eligion belongs in both public schools and other agencies of governement"?! Again, you are unfit for public office, Mr. McGill. I don't even ... I'm so frustrated ... I mean, we really need to stop having this argument. Your side lost. Forget about our history, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and two hundred thirty or so years of court rulings (Engel v. Vitale, for instance), as if I need to tell you to do what you've already done, and just look around the world at how nation states fare under religious rule. Is that what you really want to do to here? Damn, why do you hate America so much?

Update: the more I read about that McGill character, the more my head hurts.

    At your age you're going to have at least another 40 years of this "discussion". A word of advice, while fighting the good fight, take a deep breath, let it out slowly, pace yourself.
