If it were my child, I would teach it to respond: "Of course not. Democrats live in the real world, because there's no such thing as heaven."
But of course the issue is not the bugfuck insanity of religion, but a school system that allows a teacher to use religion as a political attack in the classroom.
From the Herald:
The mother of a Laurel County high school student has filed a complaint against a teacher who wrote "You can't be a Democrat & go to heaven" on her classroom whiteboard.This kind of shit goes on all the time here, and it works in both directions. I know at least one elementary school teacher active in the local Democratic party who was asked by a student "Why don't Democrats believe in God?"
The teacher, Kendra Baker, wrote the statement denigrating Democrats in her room at South Laurel High School the week after the Nov. 6 election, said Mary Gilbert.
Gilbert's daughter, Chelsea, 17, was in Baker's psychology class.
"I feel like she was bullied by a teacher," Gilbert said of her daughter.
Church sermons attacking Democratic candidates and Democratic voters as godless heathens are so common as to be conspicuous only when absent.
And it works, too, by putting Democratic candidates and Democratic voters constantly on the defensive. Frequently that ends in a who-loves-baby-jeebus-more god-off, which the freakazoid repug always wins.
Kentucky Democrats are so intimidated by this bullshit that they refuse to go on offense even when the god-bothering repug candidate is a blatant and known wife-beating, crack-smoking, whore-mongering, corrupt hypocrite.
I sincerely wish all Democrats were the baby-jeebus-hating vicious atheists that freakazoids accuse us of being. At least then we'd fight back.
