This Can Only Mean One Thing: Creationism Textbooks For Everyone!

Good news! Thanks to NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson’s benevolence, schools in the Charlotte area are about to receive $150,000 in grants.

The grants will be available to schools in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg, Mooresville, Cabarrus County and Iredell-Statesville school systems.

The grants will come through the Lowe’s “Toolbox for Education” program. Lowe’s is the primary sponsor of Johnson’s No. 48 Chevrolet.

Obviously, I’m making a joke above at the expense of stereotypical attitudes about the views and beliefs of Southerners, but in all seriousness, this $150k is going to make a huge difference in these schools.

For one thing, the schools will finally have the funds available to better prepare the teachers to educate their students by teaching them to read.

Wait. Is that a stereotype too? My bad.
