“We oppose the teaching of higher order thinking skills, critical thinking skills and similar programs…[which] have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority.”
If you can stomach it,
Just for comparison:
Funding of Education – We urge the Legislature to direct expenditures to academics as the first priority.
Right to Keep and Bear Arms – America’s founding fathers wrote the 2nd amendment with clear intent – no level of government shall regulate either the ownership or possession of firearms. Therefore we strongly oppose all laws that infringe on the right to bear arms. We oppose the monitoring of gun ownership, and the taxation and regulation of guns and ammunition. We collectively urge the legislature to pass “constitutional carry” legislation whereby law-abiding citizens that possess firearms can legally exercise their God-given right to carry that firearm as well. Until such time we urge the state to re-introduce and pass legislation easing current restrictions on firearms such as open carry and campus carry. We strongly support a ten-year mandatory minimum sentence, without parole, for felonies committed with firearms. Stiff penalties shall be imposed for frivolous litigation against legitimate firearm manufacturers. We believe that Federal Firearms License (FFL) holders should be free from harassment, and license revocations and denials against firearm dealers based on violations consisting of largely inconsequential record-keeping errors and encourage the ATF to consider lesser gradation of sanctions for such errors. Firearms and ammunition manufactured and sold in the state of Texas are not covered under the Commerce Clause and therefore are not subject to Federal regulation. We urge the passage of the “firearms freedom act”.
Note the difference in size. Priorities much? Oh, and:
We pledge our influence toward a return to the original intent of the First Amendment and toward dispelling the myth of separation of church and state.
Get out of here Establishment Clause! Texas doesn’t need you!
