Dinesh Douchesouza Gets It Wrong Once Again
Jesus fucking christ Dinesh D'Souza is thick.
I mean, I'm not going to kick his ass again, I've done that too many times, plus PZ's already done it.
All I'm going to do is point out that in his new post he pulls out the same old-ass bullshit. Allow me to present:
The real problem with Darwinism in the public school classroom is that it is often taught in an atheist way.And of course his "evidence" for the old-ass argument:
the First Amendment to the Constitution prohibits public schools from teaching or promoting atheism in any way. How do I know this? Well, the religion clauses of the First Amendment protect the "free exercise" of religion and at the same time forbid the "establishment" of religion. Courts have routinely held that the free exercise clause protects not only religious beliefs but also the absence of religious beliefs. If you are fired from your government job because you are an atheist, your First Amendment rights have been violated. In other words, the term "religion" means not only "religion" but also "atheism."To refresh everyone's memory, here's your First Amendment:
Yet if the free exercise clause defines religion in a way that includes atheism, then the no-establishment clause must define religion in the same way. So the agencies of government are prohibited from "establishing" not only religion but also atheism. This means that just as a public school teacher cannot advocate Christianity or hand out Bibles to his students, so too public school textbooks and science teachers cannot advocate atheism.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.Firstly, D'Souza blockheadedly equates secularity and atheism (the difference being obvious - secular = no mention of any supernatural being(s) on the money; atheist = "There is/are no supernatural being(s), so stop being retarded" on the money), then he goes on to make a house of cards built on that false equality by saying that "Darwinism" - whatever the fuck that means - is a religion, is being taught in the schools via biology class, and as such is violating the above stated First Amendment.
Ok, let me make this crystal clear so even Dinesh can understand: If atheism is a religion, then not sucking my dick is a sex act.
No one is hindering his or anyone's right to the free expression of their silly religion. Get the fuck over yourself and stop being such a little whiny douche.
