@5Cats: Read the next sentence slowly, please. I am a Christian.

I don't crow about it and I seldom mention it on here. But your misguided rantings leave me no choice but to introduce the fact.

Prior to your arrival, there was a fairly interesting discussion going on, involving Ollie, Cajun, a few others, and myself. You come in here and start lobbing Molotov c@cktails of insults and accusations, and it leaves me wondering if I shouldn't be finding a better way to spend my free time.

@5Cats: Since you seem to have a hard time remembering when you attempted to stuff words I never wrote into my mouth less than an hour ago, here's a screenshot:

Not Funny.

Nothing in this test is anything I believe as a Christian.

@geogypsy: It's hard being a "good Dad" but you seem to have a knack for it. And read lots of books about cats to your children That is 100% proven effective!

@Squrlz4: 5:00:37 PM ? Where I quote you and TWO OTHERS? By name, with enquotations? That's hardly what you said I've done. Unless you're referring to another post?

@Cartunz: Fun Fact: Fred and Wilma were the FIRST TV couple to sleep in the same bed at night. It's true! lookitup!

(To be fair, separate beds was pretty common in the past...)

our family watched the Flintstones when it first came out in 1960. No one back then thought that humans and dinosaurs coexisted. It was (and I suppose still is) very funny stuff. Somewhere along the line people started to think of it as a documentary.

@5Cats: "I made ABSURD examples in an effort to illustrate how -crazy- you sound, but it appears to have backfired..."

No, 5Cats, what you did was to list out three offensive statements I didn't write, and then state "You said these things, plain and simple!"

Unless the goal was to convince me never to interact with you again, yeah, I'd say it backfired.

Part of that education--call me whacky, 5Cats--should include the simple fact that planet Earth is a bit older than 6000 years and that men did not ride around on the backs of dinosaurs.


See this is what I mean by conformity. That everyone should pay for, with their tax dollars, and accept the same curriculum despite their ideological objections. This is the source of much strife in our country.

*sigh*

1. My ex-spouse and parent to my children is an orthodox Jew. Something that I did not know until well after marriage was that she was really and truly a creationist. That was cool, I defended her right to think as she pleased, I permitted her to be in charge of children's schooling...which, unfortunately...one child psychologist evaluation later, turned out to be not so great for one of our kids. (The environment didn't agree with him.)
I switched him to the public system and haven't had a behavioral complaint since.
Mommy tells the children what she likes (even to the point of saying that my Egyptian partner is bad because the Egyptians enslaved the Jews). I do not refute what Mommy says but neither do I endorse it.
I offer alternate opinions from a neutral stance.
I think that it is only fair for a child growing up in modern times to be aware of popular modern thought.

2. I know that my ex would disagree with my methods because unlike her I do not tell my children what to think, I encourage them to come to their own conclusions. That's got to be difficult in a way, it's got to be scary not to have the comfort of an instilled singular reality...but this is the way that I parent. This is what I think is right for my children and very little is going to sway my opinion on the matter.

You can bet that every other parent out there feels just as much conviction for the way they choose to parent. (And maybe they feel just as rigid about it as I do)

These children of ours, they are individuals in spite of how we try to form them. They will grow into the people they are supposed to be regardless of who we, in our ignorance, hoped they would be. Amen-Selah.

@Squrlz4: And when @Cajun pointed out that 78% of people in Turkey believe the same thing, and yet they manage to survive, you said?

It's a fact: MANY people believe something OTHER than what you or I do! Arresting them and taking away their children is NOT "an option".

That is PRECICELY what you said:
I feel the brainwashing evidenced by this graded test is harmful enough that it should be stopped by federal or state law;


I made ABSURD examples in an effort to illustrate how -crazy- you sound, but it appears to have backfired...

...what parents teach their children as a matter of faith is strictly their own business.


So... you agree with me, good! Separation of Church & State and all that stuff hooray!

@5Cats: Our society (American society, I mean; what you Canadians choose to do God only knows) holds that parents have some obligations toward their children that override individual rights. Example: If you believe that prayer is the only moral response to illness, bully for you. But if you refuse to take your child to a doctor when his appendix bursts, you can expect to be prosecuted by the local D.A.

Similarly, we require that parents provide a basic level of education for a child up to his or her 16th year. Part of that education--call me whacky, 5Cats--should include the simple fact that planet Earth is a bit older than 6000 years and that men did not ride around on the backs of dinosaurs.

That said, what parents teach their children as a matter of faith is strictly their own business.

@Squrlz4: That's a "Logical Fallacy" too... fyi...

I was being absurd ON PURPOSE. You?

#1 You said Christian Education should be "illegal" Therefor (Logically) ALL religious education should be too?

#2 That parent's have no right to teach their children things that YOU believe are "not true". Therefor: ALL parents should follow Government Guidelines? Logically!

#3 Christians should have NO right to vote. Because they're stupid.

You (Or one of the LB) said these things, plain and simple!

Is it "abuse" for me to point out how in one breath the Liberal Brigade demands "equality for all"
(a good thing!)
And in the next demands that Christians have their children removed to prevent "brainwashing" them...
(Not so good!)

THAT is what you're requesting, you lot! To deny the RIGHT a parent has to educate their children as THEY see fit! You don't like it? TOUGH! Go move to North Korea then! One size fits all education there, guaranteed!

How the same brain can generate:

Gay Rights = Good!
Christian Rights = Bad!

IS entirely beyond me. Either they're BOTH good or both bad.

Equality applies to ALL or it applies to NONE...

How's that for a "slogan" eh? MLK I'd guess...

@5Cats: I find it absolutely STUNNING that the person on here who couldn't stop waving around his "Logical Fallacies" poster would, in response to my position that it's better for voters to be scientifically literate, respond with the following:

And... you have a problem with free people voting according to their beliefs? Wanna ban Muslims too? Go ahead! & Jews while y'all are at it...

@Squrlz4: So "Sunday School" should be outlawed? For Catholics and Baptists and Lutherans and everyone else too?

NICE! (not)

Outlaw Islam while you're at it. Then get back to me once that's done.

And don't forget those pesky "brainwashing Jews" too!

And parents who teach their children that socialism is a good idea.

In fact, ANY parent who doesn't follow Government Approved Guidelines To Raising Proper Children should be sent to "re-education camps" eh?

For the sake of the children! Of course!

It's child abuse, in my opinion, and should be stopped.

@Squrlz4: But teaching Kindergarteners about "safe anal sex" is A-OK? ic...

This is not education. This is mere brainwashing.

@TheOrigin: Perhaps if it came from a "public school", but there's NO evidence of that...

Sadly, until we get Republicans completely out of power in States and Federally

@SmagBoy1: Oh yeah! Because Democrat Blacks are NOT AT ALL religious!
And a ONE PARTY system has worked so PERFECTLY in so many places before...
Let's chop that USELESS US Constitution to shreds while we're at it! Rights? No way! Only LEFTS!

These ill-taught students are going to eventually find their way into the voting booth.

And... you have a problem with free people voting according to their beliefs? Wanna ban Muslims too? Go ahead! & Jews while y'all are at it...

Wait, wait, so gays should have equal rights, and women, and blacks and everyone else...

EXCEPT CHRISTIANS! Who should be FORCED to put their children into HEATHENISTIC schools for their OWN PROTECTION!

FOR THE SAKE OF THE CHILDREN!
(where have I heard THAT before??)

Right @SmagBoy1? Right @Squrlz4?

Because unless every single child receives and identical education? It's heck in a handbasket time!!!

Oh, good luck getting the MUSLIMS permission to teach their children that stuff about homosexuality, equal rights and Allah being fake...

Squirlz, I'm not denying evolution, most capitalists (and for that matter irreligious libertarians) don't. All I'm simply acknowledging is that there are those who are uncomfortable with certain truths. With that in mind it is insane to keep wasting capital trying to force everyone to pay for and accept the same curriculum (in other words: conformity) when some have serious ideological objections to it. If it were left up to parents those who accept evolution could take their children where it is taught and is not a battleground of the evolution controversy.

@OldOllie: Well, by way of extending an olive branch: I do think that children attending these Christian academies are far better off than many of their peers in inner-city schools. The kids attending these academies come from households where the parents are making sacrifices for them to be able to attend. Some of the kids in the inner-city have never had the experience of a loving parent in their lives, which is horrid, frankly.

@S4S Apparently I did a quick edit of my post, and it ended up above your reply.

I have nothing against you personally, and I try never to carry an argument or a grudge from one thread to the next. I respect you for doing the same. However, it is somewhat frustrating to hear home schooling denigrated when no one seems to give a rat's ass about our public schools, particularly those tha are run by liberal Democrats, that across the board, and by any measure, are FAR worse.

It also bothers me when people insult and demean Christians, with whom you may disagree, but are for the most part quite harmless, while at the same time they accuse people like me of being intolerant bigots for our legitimate criticism of Islam, which in any honest assessment is nothing more than a barbarian death cult that demands all others be converted, enslaved, or killed.
