    Just when you think Republicans couldn't be more idiotic...

    Apparently Oklahoma Republicans are moving their State towards a Christian theocracy. Fortunately Oklahoma isn't a place most of us would want to live anyway (and I've lived and done business there).

    It will be interesting to see how a Christian Taliban State actually operates.

    This is religiously motivated, partisan and indefensible. The GOP should be ASHAMED of themselves.

    The Right is doubling down on all forms of hate and discrimination.

    Then they have the gall to claim Christianity is being discriminated against!

    Americans would probably be better off studying zero american history, amd focus on the history of other countries, wirh the objrctive of learning from others mistakes ( since obviously no usa official will ever approve of admitting the mighty usa ever made any) seems logical. You get to be patriotic by putting down others with no chance of admitting all the many mistakes of the usa itself, and no political issues need to arise since it isnt their own country they are learning about directly
