I attended a right-wing Christian school as a lad, so I can attest too most of this list. I’m a little surprised by #5, about the Curse of Ham, since it’s on its face so racist and has a racist history especially in the South.

In the school I attended (during the late 80s and early 90s), they used Bob Jones and Pensacola Christian curricula. While they insisted that all humans had to be descended from Noah as a result of the flood, they avoided the Curse of Ham interpretation of that and offered a more post-Civil Rights interpretation of race in Genesis. Instead they insisted that later at the Tower of Babel, God “confused” the languages and separated the races then too. It takes a good deal of reading between the lines of the Babel story, but they tried to make it work to avoid talking about the Curse of Ham.

When they taught us about the Curse of Ham they framed/conflated it as Canaan’s loss to Joshua much later in the narrative, since Canaan was the son of Ham and is named in the Genesis passage as the direct recipient of the Curse.

So referring to Noahic descent doesn’t necessarily have to evoke the Curse of Ham, even though it still is batshit that should never be taught in a public school.

One thing is for damn sure, I don’t want to hear conservatives complain about “liberal teachers” indoctrinating kids when they’re pushing crap like this. The black people are the descendants of Horn one is the most WTF and that article is full of WTFs.

Vicious Babushka,

Wingnuts are going to destroy America and all that it stands for if they’re not stopped!
