  • (chrisTwire)—Dinosaurs, Christmas, Birthday……These are just a few of the words the New York City Department of Education is banning from the city’s schools.

    The banned word list was made public – and attracted considerable criticism – when the city’s education department recently released this year’s “request for proposal” The request for proposal is sent to test publishers around the country trying to get the job of revamping math and English tests for the City of New York.

    The Department of Education’s says that avoiding sensitive words is nothing new, and that New York City is not the only locale to do so. California avoids the use of the word “weed” on tests and Florida avoids the phrases that use “Chad” or “Election” according to a statement by the New York City Department of Education.

    Matthew Mittenthal, a spokesman for the NYC Department of Education, said such words “could evoke unpleasant emotions in the students.”

    “Dinosaurs” evoking unpleasant emotions? The New York Post speculated that the “dinosaurs” could “call to mind evolution, which might upset fundamentalists.”

    But what the tabloid failed to realize is that us “fundamentalists” who oppose evolution on religious grounds, believe wholeheartedly in dinosaurs.

    Young Earth creationists, or Biblical creationists as we prefer to be called, often point to dinosaurs in making our arguments. We believe dinosaurs and humans roamed Earth together, citing legends of dragons and say the fossil record shows the earth is 6,000 years old.

    Another word on the list is Pepperoni. Just another example of liberal government out of control.

    In other liberal news:
    An Anoka County, Minn., woman was jailed Thursday after throwing three 1-week-old pit bulls at her boyfriend. The woman, Gabrielle Tywon Allen, 20, of Sping Lake Park, was held on possible charges of animal cruelty

    Police said the two argued in a parking lot outside an apartment building early Thursday. Allen allegedly hurled the three newborn puppies, which were huddled on the front seat of a pickup truck, at her boyfriend.
