Like Kyle, I seriously thought I was reading parody, some new upstart stepping up to go toe to toe with The Onion. For example, I particularly enjoyed their report on how Evangelicals have set about to have Intelligent Falling Theory taught side-by-side with classical gravitation theory in schools.
So, tell me that if you had seen this UK Times article under the banner of The Onion, that you’d have suspect for a second that it’s not their usual banter. But it’s not. Apparently, it’s the state’s business as usual.
I’m sure I’d have no problem convincing many that the state has "gone too far," here. I’d have a decidedly more difficult time convincing them that that’s not the point.
