Heaven (or a Reasonable Facsimile of) Help Us

We strongly believe in the notion of separating church and state because if they team up and join forces, they could become an uber-strong churchstate that will rise up and rule over us all with its iron fist.

One father in Australia is trying to make sure they stay separate when he filed a suit complaining that a teacher screened the movie “Evan Almighty” in his kid’s classroom, according to The Australian.

The father told the paper he filed the suit because he didn’t want his kids “exposed to superstitious mumbo-jumbo, presented as fact, in an educational setting.” And he’s not referring to the ridiculous plot.

The school denies the claim saying that the “mumbo jumbo” in question came from “Evan Almighty.” Sounds like the father should sue for lack of a proper education in the first place.
