OK - so there's a general and, IMO, jsutified belief that politicians are usually not het smartest cookies in the jar, but this one is pretty far
Valarie Hodges admitted that when she supported Governor Bobby Jindal's school voucher program, she only did so because she assumed the religious
school vouchers could only be used for Christian schools. Religious freedom means that everyone's free to follow Valarie Hodges' religion! She
"I actually support funding for teaching the fundamentals of America's Founding Fathers' religion, which is Christianity, in public schools or private
schools. I liked the idea of giving parents the option of sending their children to a public school or a Christian school."
- from here
Uh huh......soooo...what Valarie thinks is that x-ianity is perhaps the only religion ins the world? Or perhaps that Islam is not a religion??
the article is justifiably scathing about this "representative of the people":
Whoa! Record scratch sound! Dishes breaking! Islam is a religion protected by the constitution, too? No one told Valarie Hodges anything about
religions being equal under the law! She can't support any sort of anything that could learn to families using taxpayer money to educate their kids in
Islamic schools. She added Bachmannesquely,
"We need to insure that it does not open the door to fund radical Islam schools. There are a thousand Muslim schools that have sprung up recently. I
do not support using public funds for teaching Islam anywhere here in Louisiana."
And Americans wonder why the rest of the world thinks they are nutjobs???
To be fair of course there are plenty of equally stupid politicians all over the world in all sorts of parties.......but for some reason the good ol'
USA seems to provide the maximum entertainment value!
