Tony Whitson’s Curricublog has a rather lengthy, and very troubling, post about Texas State Board of Education member Cynthia Dunbar and her wilder gyrations on the issues of religion in education. Go read it. It’s got quotes, it’s got video, and if you don’t find it troubling you’re not paying attention. There is an astounding smear of Thomas Jefferson, the Constitution, and the principle of separation of state and church.
There’s a line usually attributed to Euripides, “Whom the gods destroy, they first make mad.” That’s mad-crazy, not mad-angry.
What’s Dunbar done to upset the gods so?
