In Our Own Backyard


Some U.S. Christians are not reconciled to McCain's candidacy but instead regard the prospective presidency of Barack Obama in the nature of a biblical plague visited upon a sinful people.
...
According to this activist, at the heart of the let-Obama-win movement is longtime Virginia conservative leader Michael Farris -- the nation's leading home-school advocate, who is now chancellor of Patrick Henry College (in Purcellville, Va.) for home-schooled students
...
Farris is regarded as one of the hardest-edged Christian politicians. He is reported in evangelical circles to promote the biblical justification for an Obama plague-like presidency.


Now tell me again that home schooling is primarily because you are concerned about the quality of the education your child receives in school and not as a cover for Christian indoctrination?

Punks.

When I taught in public schools...I used to have some right winner moms come quietly, sneakily ask me about public schools and were they really so evil (did kids really do x, y and z...did they really teach this evil x, y, z).

I was shocked. But calmly just told them a little about my class and school.

The looks on their faces of frustration for succombing to brainwashing they'd been fed!
I'm not anti-home school, it has its place and I'm all for choice. But I'm also pro-truth.

Go Obama, and the non-fear mongering... instead of what you dislike, what you'll do. pro-truth.

I'm not opposed to the idea of home schooling either. What I am opposed to is certain people using it as a cover for why they really don't want their kids in public schools. Just come out and be straight about it. That brainwashing crap is so annoying.

Love those parents reactions to what you tell them. That's great.
