    Kansas Bill Could Send Teachers To Jail For Six Months For Teaching ‘Harmful’ Materials

    "The bill would criminalize displaying material to minors that is “harmful,” including “any description, exhibition, presentation or representation, in whatever form, of nudity, sexual conduct, sexual excitement or sadomasochistic abuse when the material or performance.” The bill looks likely to pass the state Senate this week, and carries a penalty of up to six months in jail. Kansas already has a law that protects minors from “harmful” material, mainly to prevent adults from distributing pornography to minors. As it is written now, the law includes an exemption for teachers, but this bill aims to remove that exemption. Pilcher-Cook has not yet responded to ThinkProgress’ requests for comment.

    ACLU Kansas and teachers worry that the language is overly broad, and that teachers could be targeted for things that are part of a normal curriculum, including books with sexual or controversial themes like Huckleberry Finn."

    Yes and it seems it's always a Republican who's caught with his hands down a little boy's pants.

    Oooohh....this could be good......

    I *have* to do an exhaustive text search of The Bible.

    Read them a passage from The Bible, in Kanasas...that violates the law, as I'm *sure* there is one....and report yourself.

    Plead *guilty*

    Force them to jail you, thereby admitting in a court of law that "The Bible" is "harmful" to minors.

    This could be soooo much fun.....



    Doctor9
    Addendum:

    Genesis 19:30-36 --> Talks about sex *and* incest.
    Song of Soloman --> Lots of references to breasts and other things....

    Must keep looking... icon_smile.gif

    Republicans want to control your private life -- it's what they do.
    Now they want to arrest you for reading books they don't like.
    This is called FASCISM.

    Vote every last Republican out of office! icon_mad.gif

    Well, I'm not entirely opposed to the general concept. But you'd need to have some objective means of proving "harm." Obviously, every preacher of every religion would be locked up permanently. Although maybe one could find a cure for that.

    (I'd start with electroshock and castration. But that's just me.)

    One would think this could only end up with every Sunday school teacher in Kansas facing time in the slammer for exposing young minds to the St James version of the Holy Bible. I can't think of too many things worse than teaching kids they should murder gay men. How could that be interpreted as anything but "harmful".

    Leviticus 20:13 - If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them.

    When the Republicans get done with their book burning, there won't be a whole lot of serious books left in the library, except perhaps Dr Seuss, or the Dick and Jane readers, which might be above their reading comprehension level.

    Oh, sorry, I didn't mean to say "Dick" in this post; I might have to drive through Kansas some day.

    I could have sworn Republicans were all about "jobs, jobs, jobs."

    For the most part Republicans at the local, state, and federal level have been focusing on social issues.

    What a waste of time. But given their behavior, I'm not surprised.

    They are: jobs for billionaires. That's important, after all. Meanwhile they're doing a tremendous job rushing Kansas into the intellectual void.

    lol, I guess reading about Lot's daughters from the bible will get them jailed.

    First, he offered them up to a gang of rapists so the rapists would leave the angels alone. This is a wonderful gesture, but really, the angels could look after themselves as they went on the blind all the rapists in a single flash.

    Then, after fleeing god's judgment on the city, they got Lot drunk and used him to get preggers.

    art, democrats are just as much to blame as the Republicans are when it comes to legislating everything to death. Both major parties consist of fascist control freaks.

    Democrats try to legislate for the public welfare, safety & general good. Republicans legislate for selfish corporate and Christian religious interests, and to keep themselves in power.

    And BTW, the definition of Fascism precludes its application to liberals. It's a term that describes a governmental system where business oligarchs have greater control of the government than ordinary people do, and is typically also associated with oppressive police state methods and reduced civil rights. All are aspects of Fascism that permissive "bleeding heart" liberals cannot be accused of promoting, but that we witness every day with the Republicans in power.

    democrats legislate for endless tax and spend that benefits corrupt organized labor and the unmotivated urban poor. Look at older northern cities like Detroit, Cleveland, and Buffalo, that is democratic policies at work for the past 50 to 60 years. In addition, the democrats idea of redeveloping these older cities was costly, silver bullet redevelopment projects that ended up abject failures but the crooked, incompetent democratic blue knows only one thing, tax and spend and do the same damn things over and over again expecting different results. We definitely need to vote every democrat out of office as well. Neither major party is good and are only out for their own self aggrandizement .
