The web site http://tinyurl.com/c9wpef discusses two planks in the platform of the Oklahoma Republicanparty. They are adjacent planks 4 and 5 :
4. While the objective study of philosophy and religion can be beneficial, public schools should not be endorsing any specific religion or philosophy. We believe that students and teachers should enjoy the right of free exercise of religion.
5. We support posting the Ten Commandments and our Nation's motto, "In God We Trust," in all public schools in recognition of our religious heritage. U.S. citizens. We support teaching the intent of our founding fathers, the original founding documents, and the difference between a democracy and a republic.
Note that those are EXACT contradictions of each other in ADJACENT recommendations!
First they say don't endorse any specific religion or philosophy but then they endorse a specific religion or philosophy: the Ten Commandments from the Judeo-Christian religions.
The influence of religion appears to weaken people's basic brain functions.
