NC School Officials Remove God From Six-Year-Old’s Veterans Day Poem

leave a comment »

The superintendent of West Marion Elementary School wants to teach your children that it’s wrong to even mention God:

MCDOWELL COUNTY, N.C. — Some parents and students are outraged after McDowell County School Officials forced a 6-year-old girl to remove the word God from a poem honoring veterans in her family…

The West Marion Elementary School student was preparing for a Veterans Day program when she read her poem, but it was soon edited by the superintendent to remove the word God.

Full story here.

As one commenter stated, it appears that Freedom of Speech only exists for non-Christians.

University of Florida Eliminates Computer Science Program, Boosts Sports Budget

leave a comment »

The University of Florida recently announced that it is eliminating its Computer Science department and increasing the budget of its athletics program.

As Forbes’ Steven Salzberg reports:

The University of Florida announced this past week that it was dropping its computer science department, which will allow it to save about $1.7 million…

Meanwhile, the athletic budget for the current year is $99 million, an increase of more than $2 million from last year.  The increase alone would more than offset the savings supposedly gained by cutting computer science.

Gator alumni must be so proud of their alma mater.

Maybe if they don’t win a national championship this year, they’ll eliminate their Business and Law schools, too.
