2. It's like asking to present the kind side of Jeffrey Dahmer

How and where do they find these insane administrators?

3. Absolutely fair. Now, of course, it is also necessary -- hear me out --

for these buttholes to permit the opposing view of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

The so-called Christ -- meaning “the chosen one” -- was found guilty, as some may recall, of attempting to assume the throne as King of the Jews, a conspiracy of treason at a time when Judea was, itself, going through a very tense political period as a satrap of Rome. Many have suggested that Christ was working surreptitiously with the Roman authorities to further increase Rome’s authority in that country by inflaming the jews to rebellion thus justifying a hard and lethal Roman crack down on dissidents.

I think this theory is something that the good christian children of the great state of Texas need to know. And don’t get me started on the “virgin” Mary, about whom many feel was actually more akin to Messalina than a vestal virgin.

Just sayin’. What’s good for the goose and all that.

5. OK, how did the Superintendent expect teachers to

promote that the Holocaust was a good thing and justified?
