Ohio Public School District Asks Students to Practice “Christian Values” in Handbook

Check out this page from the student handbook for Edon Northwest Local School District in Ohio:

Which “Christian values” do they want students to uphold? Being willing to kill someone if God tells them to? Stoning people who violate any of the Ten Commandments? Condemning gay and lesbian students in the district who decide to date someone of the same gender?

(And is it weird to anyone else that they separate “honesty” and “Christian values” as if they’re different things?)

In any case, there’s no reason for a public school district to promote “Christian values,” no matter how vague those values are, in the handbook. The ACLU of Ohio sent district officials a letter yesterday asking them to fix the handbook and alter their other Jesus-promoting activities:

Afghan Cleric and Cop Defend Mob That Stomped Woman To Death… But She Turns Out To Be Innocent

Last week, a seething mob in Kabul, Afghanistan, beat and stomped a 27-year-old woman named Farkhunda to death. The attackers, whose extreme brutality was caught on camera, felt not just justified, but obligated, because they’d heard that Farkhunda had burned a Qur’an.

Now we learn that a local imam and a police spokesman both support the killing:

An Afghan cleric and a police official … defended the lynching of a woman in central Kabul after a mob was filmed stamping on the woman and smashing a brick on her head after she was accused of burning a Koran, Islam’s holy book. …

[A]t a mosque in … Kabul, a cleric’s sermon broadcast by loudspeaker told devotees that the crowd had a right to defend their Muslim beliefs at all costs. “I am warning the government not to arrest those who did this, because it will mean an uprising,” said the cleric at the Wazir Akbar Khan mosque.

At least one Kabul-based law-enforcement official is on the same page:

A spokesman in the Kabul police chief’s office also appeared to justify the killing, saying the woman had deliberately insulted Islam. “This (person) thought, like several other unbelievers, that this kind of action and insult will get them U.S. or European citizenship. But before reaching their target, lost their life,” Hashmat Stanekzai wrote on his Facebook page.
