Rationality shouldn’t be expected.
Great arguments, loved your posts.
I wonder is there a “God centered” or “Godless” way to teach Literature, Art, the theory of universal gravitation of mass, the history of China?
My big issue is that there is nowhere in the US constitution that authorizes the federal government to be involved in education. I would abolish the department of education tomorrow. If Americans want the federal government to be involved they need to pass an amendment. I would fight against that tooth and nail.
If you had attended Catholic school from 1st to 10th and godless government schools from 11th to 12th, and Catholic university followed by state university graduate school, you would know that, YES, there is a difference between a godless and God-centered way of teaching the above.
Honestly, when I read a statement like yours above I conclude that there are only three possible explanations for this thinking:
1) It is like a fish in water, those who swim in the godless worldview are incapable of knowing that they are doing it. I think if I told a fish that he was swimming in water he would get mad at me.
2) They are lying. They do fully understand the complaints and arguments of those who object to state sponsored godless schools but deny that they do.
3) They are financially benefiting directly or indirectly from the government temples of godlessness. ( Misnamed "schools").
What I find odd, is that is it rare to find a Freeper that is determined to impose their God-centered worldview on the children of those who are godless. What is seen here on the pages of Free Republic are calls for vouchers, tax credits, charters, and a move toward eventual complete privatization.
Why would the godlss support a system of compulsory funded, compulsory-attendance, state sponsored "schools" than impose godlessness on other people's children? Are they fundamentally bullies?
