Why burn books when you can just revise them to death?

Oh sure, any old idiot like Pastor Terry Jones can burn a book, but it takes a special, well organized mental deficiency to try to change what’s inside those books.

Take for instance the news today the the Texas Board of Education, who you may remember six months ago try to Jesus up the state’s influential history textbooks, are now claiming that the new textbooks are too soft on Islam. Conservative members of the Board of Ed claim “Diverse reviewers have repeatedly documented gross pro-Islamic, anti-Christian distortions in social studies texts.” How diverse are we talking here? Bible thumpers AND Bible Beaters? Also what makes it so gross and pro-Islamic? Like your parents making out gross or ear pimple gross? Students deserve to know!

I’ve also always wondered why people in Texas (with the VERY notable exception of the Bush family and house of Saud) hate Muslims so much. Wanna live in a hot, political-backwards and religiously oppressive area covered in oil pollution and huge tacky McMansions? Because you can find that in both San Antonio and Saudi Arabia.

I guess the sad truth is that zealots on the TX Board of Ed won’t be happy until that state’s history text books are widdled down to a comic book featuring a buff, machine toting Ronald Reagan shooting Ivan the Terrible in the face. No wait, that’s not sad, that sounds awesome!
