Gallows humor ...

... from the floor at a Curriculum Night meeting for parents of seventh graders.

The English/Social Studies curriculum looks at the Renaissance. They are reading parts of the Bible and Koran as literature. The teacher mentions the time when Galileo was forced to recant his claim that the Earth orbits the Sun. John Paul II apparently issued a decree stating that the Church was wrong about this.

"Hasn't that been revoked by Pope Benedict?"

On to the science classroom, where we hear that the kids are learning about the empirical method of testing hypotheses.

"That's not science any more."

"Shouldn't they be reading the Bible as science, not literature?"
