At Libertyville High School (District 128), school officials confirmed, biology and human genetics teacher, Beau Schaefer, had been promoting creationist beliefs while discrediting evolution. I wonder if biology teacher Schaefer referenced Genesis 1:29
God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.and advocated the eating of hemlock and nightshade in accordance with god's proven advice.
All three incumbents, (Jim Burke, Doug Goldberg, Tony Pietro) and one candidate (Chris Wallace) for the Lake Zurich Unit District 95 school board believe creationism should be taught alongside evolution in elementary school science classes. Wallace, went so far as to say creationism is fact and evolution is just a theory. (emphasis mine).
I know what you're thinking who wouldn't want to learn about how mighty Odin slew Ymir and from his bones and blood created the earth and the seas and from his skull created the heavens! Cool, right? But No! Instead they want some 3000 year old myth called biblical creationism to be taught.
Now, I could run down these candidates for their simple ignorance regarding what constitutes a scientific theory as opposed to the everyday person saying "I have a theory..." But that gives them to much credit.
When these despicable buffoons were questioned further they retreated behind the 'Oh I misunderstood the question' excuse. There is no doubt these christian fascists believe the bible to be the infallible word of yahweh and that teaching all life on earth share a common descent has been the harbinger of America's doom,
We've seen the chaos the election of ignorant anti-human Republicans and conservatives has wrought in Indiana, Florida, New Jersey and Wisconsin and these asses in Lake County Illinois are how the conservatives operate. The Right has for years worked on the small local level, first getting evil idiots elected to school boards, who work to to alter American history elevating conservative criminals, punks, and chicken hawk cowards to the status of heroes and to promote ideas which contradict proven observation and accepted knowledge.
They do this because everyone knows Conservatism is Terrorism and Slavery. It is a system of evil bondage which shackles the mind with ignorance and demands the surrender of morality and humanity to the interests of the Rich and serfdom. But, in order to get people imprisoned in the conservatives grasp they must abuse children and warp their minds.
Conservatism is Terrorism and Child Abuse.
