Texas schools board rewrites US history with lessons promoting God and guns

Texas schools board rewrites US history with lessons promoting God and guns --US Christian conservatives drop references to slave trade and sideline Thomas Jefferson who backed church-state separation 16 May 2010 A clutch of Christian evangelists and social conservatives have grasped control of the Texas education board... Those corrections have prompted a blizzard of accusations of rewriting history and indoctrinating children by promoting rightwing views on religion, economics and guns while diminishing the science of evolution, the civil rights movement and the horrors of slavery. Several changes include sidelining Thomas Jefferson, who favoured separation of church and state, while introducing a new focus on the "significant contributions" of pro-slavery Confederate leaders during the civil war... Study of Sir Isaac Newton is dropped in favour of examining scientific advances through military technology. There is also a suggestion that the anti-communist witch-hunt by Senator Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s may have been justified.
