Ever evolving textbook sticker issue

Robert L. Crowther, II

Scrappleface.com has skewered last week’s federal court ruling on Cobb Co.’s textbook disclaimers with a clever bit of satire.

“U.S. District Judge Clarence Cooper ruled that the old labels could “confuse” public school students, who are not accustomed to thinking critically.”

Indeed!
The Scrapplers report that the newly evolved stickers now in textbooks read:

“”This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a fact, not a theory, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with childlike trust, accepted obediently and defended vigorously against the attacks of ignorant monotheists.”

Read the entire ScrappleFace satire here (and yes, the Cooper quotations are pure fiction).
