LA Times Misses Fake US History Tie in To TX Bible Class Bill

Check it out: Chuck and Geena Norris are really into the NCBCPS Bible class course curriculum.

OK, cool... But, do they know it contains falsified US history ?

Well, before you judge Chuck and Geena too harshly, consider that the LA Times, which just wrote a story on the Texas bil that's soon coming up for a vote and would force Texas high schools to offer elective Bible classes, doesn't seem to know that the course curriculum the Texas bill favors contains fake US history either. Why hold Chuck and Geena Norris up to a higher standard than the one set by the LA Times ? The LA Times is a fairly decent paper, and if it's oblivious, well then ; Chuck and Geena have a right to be oblivious too !
