I guess I have to feel guilty of my Race and ethnicity and from being an USA citizen. The war with Iraq is out of the question.
When I was a kid, I was taught that we were all the same and equal, now they tell students that we are all different. Why did they end the lecture with Pagan Gandhi and Protestant MLK and not the Pope? And a chant!! And of course, they ended with posters for the Communist (anti-God) Front, the United Nations.
This parish is the most liberal in the Diocese, it is also the largest. They took out the kneelers in church and many members belong to VOTF where they hold meetings at the church. You never hear of this church addressing abortion, school choice or vouchers. It's always the death penalty, immigrants and tolerance.
Why? At least if a public school in my area is spreading liberalism like this, I have some recourse - I can go to the principal, the superintendent, and ultimately the school board if necessary to get it stopped. If the school board doesn't respond, I can run for school board myself, and can encourage my friends to vote for me, and/or run themselves in a coalition.
None of this recourse is available to parochial school parents. Their school boards are usually appointed by the priest or at best are selected from members within the parish. They are ultimately not accountable even to parish members (just ask Catholic parents who are now homeschooling because their parish schools are too liberal.)
Enabling this system even further with tax money is a bad idea.
Speak for yourself. Oh, and you might want to work on the humility.
Gillis told the Pompton Lakes audience that like most of them, he had been the beneficiary of intolerance, reaping benefits of being a white North American. Working in poor villages in Honduras, he said, he found that people welcomed him much more readily than people from that land were being welcomed north of the United States border.
Somehow they manage to tie all the hatred and wrongdoing in the world to white Euro-descendants. Amazing. (note to Mr. Gills: maybe those poor villages accepted you because you were bringing something to them, not just sponging off the fruits of their labor?)
