After a parent who supports the teaching of creationism and opposes sex education complained about the film, the Federal Way School Board on Tuesday placed what it labeled a moratorium on showing the film. The movie consists largely of a computer presentation by former Vice President Al Gore recounting scientists’ findings.
Oh my, what do we have here? People are actually afraid of Al Gore the environmentalist, not Al Gore the possible President. Could it be that he is on to something that people do not want to hear about? Take for instance this cute little quote:
“Condoms don’t belong in school, and neither does Al Gore. He’s not a schoolteacher,” said Frosty Hardison, a parent of seven who also said that he believes the Earth is 14,000 years old. “The information that’s being presented is a very cockeyed view of what the truth is. … The Bible says that in the end times everything will burn up, but that perspective isn’t in the DVD.”
Condoms don’t belong in schools? Where do they belong then do I dare ask? In case these parents have not noticed, kids like to have sex. And kids spend most of their time in school. Thus, condoms DO belong in schools, being handed out free of charge. It can be embarrassing to buy condoms so I think they should be given to the kids so they actually use them instead of having unprotected sex. They are going to have it…you might as well give them something to stop pregnancy and STD’s. And as for the world being only 14,000 years old….have these parents ever read anything other than the Bible? It is proven that the world is much much MUCH older than 14,000 years. Science is fact and theories are just that…theories. So while a scientist might not be able to prove that God exists, he or she CAN prove how old the earth is. Seriously…you people have children? And you actually teach them this stuff? Scary.
And here is another gem from the article:
“From what I’ve seen (of the movie) and what my husband has expressed to me, if (the movie) is going to take the approach of ‘bad America, bad America,’ I don’t think it should be shown at all,” Gayle Hardison said. “If you’re going to come in and just say America is creating the rotten ruin of the world, I don’t think the video should be shown.”
“America is creating the rotten ruin of the world.”….now THAT is a classic line. I wish I could talk to this person and see what other great lines they could come up with. What are they so scared of; finding out that their giant trucks will help kill us all? That their McMansions use way too much electricity and emit way too much pollution? Bad America is right…the rest of the civilized world is taking steps to stop global warming, and little Ms. Hardison seems to think WE are the bad ones for only talking about it. We are the bad ones…because of people like you that think nothing is wrong and you want to continue on your merry little way.
Get a grip people..the sooner you realize that this is real, the sooner we might be able to start fixing it, if it is not too late already. Keep a documentary about global warming out of schools makes about as much sense as keeping condoms away from kids. Facts..FACTS…kids have sex and global warming is happening. They should be taught about both, not hid in a closet because a fact contradicts a Bible. Ah this crap pisses me off, in case you couldn’t tell. I need a drink.
