Glenn Beck is angry that he can’t go anywhere without seeing the word ‘progressive,’ which he believes is part of a wider conspiracy to brainwash people into becoming progressives. Beck said he found a progressive dishwasher, progressive appliances, progressive paint, and even a paint color named after Woodrow Wilson. “Look at how they are just embedding this everywhere to make sure that you always understand that progressive is a good thing that means newfangled, that means special,” Beck lamented. “They are embedding it everywhere.” That’s...

Last week, we reported that an organization called Citizens for Objective Public Education filed a lawsuit contesting science standards in Kansas schools, arguing that lessons on evolution represent an unconstitutional establishment of religion. John Calvert of the Intelligent Design Network, an attorney involved in the lawsuit, told conservative talk radio host Janet Mefferd today that lessons on evolution are “religious education” in violation of the rights of parents, children and taxpayers. Mefferd replied that it is “crazy” to think that public schools could teach... MORE

At a Texas State Board of Education meeting last month, the Republican head of the school board defended the qualifications of a biology textbook review panelist who said that “creation science based on biblical principles should be incorporated into every biology book that is up for adoption.” SBOE chair Barbara Cargill defended the panelist, who is not a biologist but… a dietitian. Cargill defended another Creationism advocate on the panel, a businessman, because he has a degree in chemical engineering, saying that not enough biology teachers wanted to serve on the panel...

Liberty Counsel head Mat Staver released a statement today warning members that their kids may be in schools that are “celebrating LGBT History Month,” which he said will focus on “sex and murder.” Staver is especially upset that students may learn about Gwen Araujo, a seventeen-year-old transgender woman who was beaten to death by a group of men. He said such lessons amount to “sexual assault on our children.” Washington, DC - What are your kids studying in school today? Public schools from California to Florida are celebrating LGBT History Month, where... MORE

A Kansas-based group that “promotes the religious rights of parents, children, and taxpayers” is challenging the state’s science standards because they include the teaching of evolution, which the group claims is a religion and therefore should be excluded from science class. As the AP reports, Citizens for Objective Public Education (COPE) claims that public schools “promote a ‘non-theistic religious worldview’ by allowing only ‘materialistic’ or ‘atheistic’ explanations to scientific questions.” The group argues that by...

During her daily radio commentary today, Linda Harvey of Mission America once again took aim at the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, which she accused of leading an “assault on our children” by “promoting homosexuality to kids.” She asserted that GLSEN wants kids to engage in “high-risk behaviors” even though “none of these boys is born homosexual.” She also went after the Human Rights Campaign for hosting a “Time to Thrive” conference for its Youth Well-Being Project. “The problem is, kids won’t thrive if we...

Ron Paul appeared on the 700 Club today to promote his new curriculum for homeschoolers, of which televangelist Pat Robertson is a big fan. Robertson said that Paul’s curriculum, which includes instructions on “the Biblical principles of self-government” and “a thorough understanding of Austrian school economics,” is necessary to stop “indoctrination” in public education. “Don’t the so-called progressives and whatever, don’t they really want education to indoctrinate children. It’s not just a question of educating they want to... MORE
