The untrawingnutty Texas Board of Education is at it again - attempting to push their conservative agenda via the textbooks students use. And since Texas is the second largest purchaser of textbooks, publishers are usually happy to oblige.
This time they don't want students learning that Muslins are anything other than dirty terrorists. From Gawker:
The Texas Board of Education will vote tomorrow on a resolution decrying the "gross pro-Islamic, anti-Christian distortions in social studies texts." Of course, the books in question haven't been used since 2003, but no matter.
Don't mess with Texas!
