Texas Removes Thomas Jefferson from teaching standard.

The Texas Board of Education......."decided to drop Jefferson from a world history section devoted to great political thinkers. ..... By dropping mention of revolution, and substituting figures such as Aquinas and Calvin for Jefferson, Texas Freedom Network argues, the board had chosen to embrace religious teachings over those of Jefferson, the man who coined the phrase "separation between church and state."

....I pity the students....I find this pretty shocking, but not unexpected from the bitter South.
