A school lets a right-wing nutball (and his obedient wife) stop them from showing “An Inconvenient Truth:”
“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.”
That sounds something we need to get into schools immediately. The Left Behind series can give the other side of the story. Or maybe they can just show “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.”
“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.”
Let me guess: you didn’t see the movie, did you? Your husband “expressed to you” what happens in it? Oh, the nuts, how they amuse and infuriate with their ignorance.
