Looks like this blatant political enshrinement of religion has gone under the radar in Missouri. So as of November, any student in Missouri can opt out of any assignment in the public school system if it offends their religious convictions?
Note that students may not be compelled to participate in any educational assignments that contravene their religious beliefs.
I guess that rules out biology for any poor kids who happen to be born to evolution-denying, religiously-retarded Missouri red-necks.
Where are the Missouri atheists on this!?

We can only hope that this backfires for the "evolution-denying, religiously-retarded Missouri red-necks". By denying their their children the benefit of science classes such as biology it could make him or her more curious as to what their their parents are trying to hide.
