Linda Kimball has written a lot of words in this essay and has failed to condemn government schooling.

If children are sent into godless temples of state worship ( misnamed “schools”), they will learn to think and reason godlessly and worship the state.

If conservatives love their children, if they are are concerned about the children of this nation, if they hope to overcome communism and fascist islam, then we MUST MUST MUST shut down the godless temples of state worship ( “public schools”). We MUST MUST MUST work to see that every child has access to a conservative Judeo-Christian based education.

( By the way...If Christian and conservative teachers really loved their students they would be working to get these kids OUT of the government schools. They wouldn't be working IN the godless government temples ( misnamed “public schools”) cooperating in the moral destruction of children.)

It is easy to recline in your easy-chair and condemn the efforts of others. Rather than offering up your snide nit-picking, how about doing your own research and writing? If you can do better than Kimball, then show all of us that you can by doing so.

Wintertime is exactly right - you skypilot fans piss and moan in baroque detail about the terrible position we humans are in, spiritually, socially, and politically, all the while blithely trooping your children off to the government madrassas which pose as schools. These “schools” are a travesty; their chief purpose is the socialization of the young in an institutional setting, thus replacing normal human relationships with civic religion shaped ones.

There is your Moloch - there is the brazen maw demanding sacrifice - just down the street from where you live.

You already live under a socialist system, but dare not admit it.

BTW, the “rosy picture” jibe was meant as sarcasm, obviously.

I used to argue otherwise, but the public schools have become loaded with drugs and alcohol, police, ideology of a particular strain taught as truth. Even some of the private school teach ideology as truth. It’s very tricky to sift fact from fiction these days.

"Linda Kimball has written a lot of words in this essay and has failed to condemn government schooling."

That's just your favorite grievance, and you blame the writer for not sharing it with you.

Judging by the conviction with which you write, you do not even suspect yourself of being wrong. Totally wrong.

Values are acquired at home, not at school or anywhere else. They are sharpened elsewhere but acquired in the parents' home. Well, most kids don't even have a two-parent home. Only about 5% of people attend churches in Europe. It was Christianity that perished first there, and schools have become g-dless as a result, not the other way around.

Conversely, schools are nothing but buildings. It is people who make those schools function as they do. So, where do those people come from? From the same pool of humanity. It is the same people that do not attend a church or a synagogue, who believe that all cultures are created equal, and who swear at the dinner table. Those same schools were the envy of the snobbish Europeans in the 19th century.

As Christianity retreats from the public life, as it has been doing for several centuries, the vacuum it leaves behind is fill with all sorts of garbage: communism, atheism, anti-Americanism.

Your problem is not with schools but with your neighbors.
