    To be accurate Texas wants Christianity in their science texts.

    When these same people talk about prayer at high school football games they claim that they aren’t invoking any specific God. Then further say “What’s the harm of a little prayer?”

    When I suggest that we get a big wheel, like the one on Wheel of Fortune, and paste all the worlds religions on it, and spin it then pray to what ever religions God it lands on they all protest, and become very upset.

    I guarantee that those people on the school boards in Texas would never allow a mention of Islam, Judiasm, Buddhism or any other religion other than Christianity in those text books.
