Ijits in Utah

Over at Republic Of T(, we hear about a school district in Utah which is upset because it can't find any psychology textbooks that say that homosexuality is evi-i-il and destructive, because (d'oh) no sane psychologist believes that anymore. So what's a school district to do? They're all in a dither.

It’s not hard to predict where this is going, and it’s likely to get more ridiculous further down the line. I can foresee a day when science textbooks are banned from some classrooms because, say, they teach that the earth is older than what some people think the bible shows it to be.

How have the good folks of Nebo solved their problem? Well, students may now need parental permission to take psychology classes. Next year, it’ll be Geology.
