    What a bunch of bullshit!

    Liberty Counsel

    Some of the suggestions that have come forward at various times include:

    * Removing references to Daniel Boone, General George Patton, Nathan Hale, Columbus Day, and Christmas.
    * Including the cultural impact of hip hop music, ACLU lawyer Clarence Darrow, and the Hindu holiday of Diwali.
    * Replacing the term "American" with "Global Citizen"– stating that students need to be shaped "for responsible citizenship in a global society" without any mention of citizenship in American society.
    * Replacing expansionism and free enterprise with imperialism and capitalism.

    What's your point? Just because these "suggestions" have been offered in no way means that they're actually being considered. This is just more "TINKY WINKY IS GAY PROPANGANDA" fearmongering nonsense from Jerry Falwell's corpse (Liberty University).

    Show me a link (not from Liberty University) that says anything like what you posted is actually being considered, and you'll have made a point. Until then, you're letting people control you by making you afraid.

    Ack. The europeanization of our country marches forward (or tries to, at least). We're busily falling into pretty much what our ancestors came to this country to get away from.

    I bet you think that Tinky Winky from the teletubbies is gay propaganda too, right?

    Because that came from the same source as the OP.
