SSOE member Dunbar: Aquinas led American revolution, not Jefferson

It’s astounding in its error.

Cynthia Dunbar told Chris Matthews today that Thomas Aquinas played a more important role in the American Revolution than Thomas Jefferson.

Jefferson, Texas students learn in other places, wrote the great body of the Declaration of Independence, and the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, which is the direct forebear of religious freedom in U.S. Constitutional law.

If you hurry, you can see it tonight (at 6:00 p.m and 11:00 p.m Central, I’m told) on Chris Matthews’ “Hardball.”

Isn’t it astounding people who claim to be Christian will tell such bold lies to children?  It’s as if they think Jesus said “make the children suffer” instead of what Jesus did say.  Voodoo history at its most voodoo; history revisionism of the rankest sort.  Where’s Mermelstein?

You can see it online here, at Hardball’s website.

Dunbar and her fellow travellers are effing idiots.  Strong post to follow.


SSOE?  State Soviet of Education.  Why do you ask?

    How embarrassing for Texas. I do hope that all the “sane” states will absolutely ignore everything that the current Texas State Board of Education has recommended for curriculum and textbooks in this unbelievable fiasco. NEVER in my family’s four generations in this state has something from Texas been so very deserving of complete ridicule.

    My dogs are smarter than this woman. How in the world could people elect such a loonie?
