When Christianist Fascists Teach Our Children

From the Huffington Post:
In Texas, Thomas Jefferson is set to be removed from the textbook standards explaining how Enlightenment thinkers have influenced revolutions since 1750. Replacing him will be the French theologian John Calvin.
So, let me get this straight. The right wing fascists in Texas want to remove one of our country's founding fathers, and its third president, from history textbooks in favor of a French guy? My Gawd! What would the Republican-Fascists of 2003 say about such unpatriotic blasphemy?!

Update: As is typical with the fringe right, facts don't matter. The subject at hand is the influence of Enlightenment thinkers since 1750, however Calvin died in 1564.
