Hot on the heels of the revelation that Satanists are dancing among the flames of hell in fetishistic love for Gov. Rick Scott's sweet embrace of religious teachings in schools, it turns out that (in a somewhat more serious and potentially harmful way) Creationists are reaping the benefits of school vouchers, and some are doing it right here in Orlando. So, it turns out that "school choice" isn't so much a choice as it is a church, with numerous taxpayer funded educational institutions teaching such wonders as "evidence of The Flood" and "evidence against evolution." You can read the funnier side of the story here, via our friends at Wonkette. Or you can go for the serious crap up the chain on MSNBC's website. Whatever the case, the whole notion that there's no threat of voucher monies trickling down into questionable academics – because, hey, we need to keep this state dumb – is turned over like a Satanist's cross by the evidence. Evidence? Who needs evidence? Go to this site for a full list of Florida schools practicing the Jesus. Below is a list of a few of the vaunted Orlando institutions. Amen.
