We live in the world's dumbest country

Teen Suspended for Going to Prom--Baptist School Forbids Dancing, Rock Music and Hand-Holding

FINDLAY, Ohio - An Ohio teenager has been suspended by his Christian school that bans dancing because he attended another high school's prom.

Officials at Heritage Christian School in Findlay had warned 17-year-old Tyler Frost that he would be suspended and prohibited from attending graduation if he went to the public school dance over the weekend with his girlfriend, according to The Courier.

Frost danced and held hands
[Editor's Note: OMIGOD!! WE'RE DOOMED!!!] with his girlfriend, Rebecca Smooty, at the Findlay High School prom, attended by about 800 students, officials told the newspaper.

OK, boys and girls, this raises SOOOO many issues.

First of all, what sort of mutant parent sends their child to such a school?

I guess I shouldn't be surprised, given that 44% of Americans believe in this:

Well, if the school won't allow hand-holding, we know who can't enroll:

People far wiser than me have called faith the belief in things not seen. I don't think faith requires the rejection of those things that are patently obvious.

And it's a given that most, if not all, of those 44% watch Fox: Hannity, O'Reilly, American Idol, 24.

They're fed a steady stream of lies as news, while right wing senators refer to 24, as if it were reality, to justify torture.

Did anyone watch KO last night? He destroyed O'Reilly's outrageous revisionist contention that President Obama was "wrong" in affirming that Churchill did not torture. Point-by-point, just the facts.

The trouble is, KO's viewers already knew this.
