Git Yer Heathen Ass Over to the Asian School, Boy!

Parents of Buddhist student sue “Bible Belt” Louisiana school over forced prayer, religious discrimination – Boing Boing

The ACLU is representing Scott and Sharon Lane, the parents of a child known in the proceedings as “CC,” in a case against the Sabine Parish, Louisiana School Board, where their child was ridiculed for his Buddhist faith, and was forced to endure Christian indoctrination, including forced prayer, in the class. They say that their son’s sixth grade curriculum included exam questions like “ISN’T IT AMAZING WHAT THE _____________ HAS MADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” (the correct answer was “LORD”). The school superintendent told them that they had no business being upset by this, because the school is in the Bible Belt, and he recommended sending the child to a school 25 miles away where there were “more Asians.”

Socons often wonder why liberty-minded conservatives are wary of their good intentions.  Here’s an example of the sort of thing we worry about.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
