There are a lot mean things that could be said about this.
Rep. Valarie Hodges, R-Watson, says she had no idea that Gov. Bobby Jindal’s overhaul of the state’s educational system might mean taxpayer support of Muslim schools.
“I actually support funding for teaching the fundamentals of America’s Founding Fathers’ religion, which is Christianity, in public schools or private schools,” the District 64 Representative said Monday.

We could really use a civil service exam. Nothing really hard or anything. Just make sure legislators realize that we have freedom of religion in America.
