Alberta… Texas north? or Arkansas north?

Well, evolution is considered optional in Canada’s most redneck province.  Apparently, evolution is not ‘science’ ; but is ‘a matter of religion’, according to Premier Ed Stelmach.  Under a proposed bill, parents now have the right to pull their children out of classes dealing with topics like evolution and homosexuality.

I knew the province was overrun with delusional, religious, redneck dumbf***s; but….  Are you guys TRYING to make yourselves look like fundamentalist jackasses?

  4. Arkansas and Texas are actually fantastic places to live. If a resident doesn’t like what the government mandates for K-12 education there, the parent can always send their kids to a private school or home school.

  5. I’ve never been to Arkansas, but my father-in-law lived in Texas and loved it. I visited a couple of times and thought it was great. The freedom to send kids to private school and to home school exists here, but I think that it’s different than in some states where the private schools actually receive money somehow from the government. Here they don’t, so private schools are for the better off.
