Creation Class ≠ Science Credit

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

A federal judge says the University of California can deny course credit to applicants from Christian high schools whose textbooks declare the Bible infallible and reject evolution.

Rejecting claims of religious discrimination and stifling of free expression, U.S. District Judge James Otero of Los Angeles said UC’s review committees cited legitimate reasons for rejecting the texts – not because they contained religious viewpoints, but because they omitted important topics in science and history and failed to teach critical thinking.

How about it’s not a science credit because it’s not science.

    Duh. How this even is news is beyond me. How anyone can skew this as infringing on free expression is also beyond me. Freely expressing yourself does not give you the right to attend College. As a matter of fact, half of people’s freedom of expression is what gets them rejected. You telling your high school gym teacher to go f himself is surely freedom of expression but that outburst in your disciplinary record is not getting you into UCLA. So if you want to get into college, find out what a college would like and then do that, because I’m sure that spouting King James and bitch slapping Mr. Jones isn’t up there on the list.

    Or, go to a nice Catholic high school where one of two things would happen; 1: since Catholicism constantly is retracting its doctrine to always be up to date with science (All of a sudden the Bible is a metaphor), you wouldn’t even know enough about your own religion because the teachers barely bother anymore 2: since Catholic high schools are looking for anyway to make a buck, they’ll sell their own mothers to get government funding before listening to what BXVI tells them to do / with the lack of funding, they’d much rather cut religion classes before cutting physics (Father Cicero loves blowing shit up). Oh just thought of another point. Catholic high schools are also good for quality teaching because they are so obsessed with their national rankings and famous alumni that they’d rather teach cutting edge stuff than act Catholic.
