Religious teaching workshop?

In Arkansas, some churches have been holding teacher workshops. However, the classes focus on how to circumvent the separation of church and state without overtly breaking the law. As one teacher said, "It became very clear to me as the day progressed that the objective was to encourage teachers to abide by the letter of the law while quietly sabotaging the intent of the law."

If that wasn't bad enough for you, teachers are given professional development credits. Teachers must participate in mandatory training hours every year in order to keep up with the latest techniques and information about teaching. This training is called professional development, and certificates are issued as proof of the teacher having fulfilled their obligations.

In this case, the certificates were forged. The signatory was not an employee of the education department. Yes, these good Christians lied to the teachers, after taking their money. Dishonesty is promoted by these churches in the form of forged certificates and training to circumvent laws. And these are the people who claim to be moral authorities?
