A Georgia school system decides to keep a poster display that is directly from the imagination of a thespian’s play called “The Crucible” on their public education walls.
If God is dead, he (it) must have been alive at one time. IF he were alive, are these people not at least acknowledging that he existed? IF the author, Miller, was but an uninspired creator of fiction and entertainer, why does this school system’s administrators (and town employees) put so much stock in what he said? What, in their little uneducated minds is so important about this work that they insist on putting up this fabrication on their walls? What is the message these clowns are trying to put in the minds of their wards? If God is indeed dead, he cannot see what it is that you do, or don’t do. Since God is dead, is there no longer such a thing as sin? Has sin died too? Then, in the world without morality and law, is everything acceptable? Perhaps even murder? Even killing your fellow citizens when a corrupt government orders it or when it is required for the good order of society? After all, when an uninspired playwright, dramatist, and entertainer from Harlem in New York City can warrant such loftiness in the Peachtree State and Pride of the South, just imagine what a POTUS from Kenyan will be able to command. There can be little doubt that this school system got three gold stars from the Department of Education for this little stunt.
Parents (and students) are pissed, and rightfully so. While I’m sure that she is a sweet person, perhaps if the Superintendent’s head were to meet the fat end of a rapidly moving baseball bat, she would be able to claim that (at last) she has actually employed it for something. No doubt, for the first time in her life.

Where is common sense in Georgia these days?
