  •  Much though I loath Barton... (0+ / 0-)

    I need to ask a couple of questions about this story. The most important is; is this actually being sponsored or run by the school district? If it is, then every bit of outrage expressed above is absolutely justified. No district should ever be supporting this kind of garbage.

    If, however, the answer is "no", then we have a different situation. Schools and districts are public facilities. As such, they operate under certain restrictions, including the one that demands they accept anyone if they make "public accommodations" (i.e., any space offered for use to the general public.) If this is the case, they may not be able to refuse Barton and his crew whether they want to or not.

    While Barton and his theocratic cronies certainly have no excuse for the garbage being peddled in this "course", the school district may or may not be complicit in it. We need a bit more evidence to be sure which it is.
