Aren't there any other secular homeschool families in Jackson? Surely we can't be alone. I'm tired of having to deal with the religious nutjobs in the local homeschool group who act like we're insane when we answer, "No, we don't have a church family & don't want one. But thanks." (And god forbid you want to teach your child actual science instead of Creationism. But I have no desire to start on that discussion.)
I just would like to know if there are any other families homeschooling in Jackson who don't act like rejects from "Sister Wives" or "20 Kids & Counting".
And before anyone blasts me with "Why do you homeschool? So you think you're too good to send your kid to public school?", I'll just go ahead & say it's none of your business WHY we homeschool.

I don't homeschool my child, nor do I plan to do so, but I am a secular humanist who is happy to hear of a secular homeschooler in this town. Bravo! I agree about the "Sister Wives" rejects. Hilarious! Seriously, I hope you find your people! Maybe try looking for some local folks under the "find your tribe" boards at Mothering.com .

Thanks for your input.:) Always good to hear from someone with on-topic feedback rather than just trolls trying to start off-topic rants. I'll check out Mothering.com . Cheers!

Your ignorance perfectly illustrates my reluctance to associate with hateful, petty, and small-minded Christians. Thanks for reinforcing my belief that one should forsake all religions.

Snschick, please leave this thread alone unless you have a substantive helpful comment regarding homeschooling by secular families in Jackson.

In return, I promise to continue staying far away from all the racially-charged discussions you participate in, since I have nothing constructive to add to those. It is not my intention to ever comment on threads where I have nothing useful to say. I would kindly ask the same so we can keep it on-topic. Thanks!:)

Logic: I am a Christian and I do feel for you in your pain. Some Christians are of the belief that "it's my Church or no Church". Personally, I see religion as a free choice of each person. best wishes in your search. As for snchick, she hasn't a clue about anything other than her being white and married to a black so the rest of us are all racists.

Have u been to church? The bible clearly states all my children shall be equally yolked which means a Christian should only associate with a non Christian if trying to convert them to christianity. I was raised southern baptist. I do not associate myself with those who openly deny God. I don't care what religion you are as long as you worship God the one and only. If you don't the bible not mE says you will burn in tHe fiery pits of hell forever.

Seems like you are associating with non-Christians right now..
Why can you never mind your own and leave other peoples opinions alone? We all know you have your loud a$$ opinions but you don't have to touch every single thread on this website. You would be so annoying to talk to face to face. That is, if anyone else could get a word in. Conversations with you must really suck.

Telling me that I should not associate with 'non-Christians' is like telling me to not associate with homosexuals; a friend is a friend and I let them choose their own path in life. I will not push my beliefs on anyone.I may discuss with them and when they refuse, we will still be friends.

Your uncle tom hubby, if you even have one, needs to choke the living hell out of you then smash your fingers with a hammer. You would be much more pleasant to be around without the ability to talk or type.

Apparently you all need Jesus. a man putting his hands on a woman? Go to church ppl. God is against homosexuality as well lady! The only reason you should associate with them is to lead them to the right path. It clearly says this in the bible. Where it also says when you deny my commandments and laws by pleasing yourself not your savior you are dennying me as your savior and I will deny you infront of my father.

The Bible is fiction. God? Santa Claus? Both are big men in robes "watching" us. Stop living in a fantasy land.

Jeez. Christians ruin everything.

Now I know you are full of $hit. First racism and all your talk and now religion. Give it up, you are nothing but an insignifact, lonely troll who makes $hit up about being white and married to a black man and now you are a crusader.

First of all you assume a whole whole lot. You assume there is a god, you assume that he is your christian god, you assume he influenced the "bible" if he is a christian. Newsflash-christianity is but 1 of hundreds of religions in the world.

By the way, you do realize the "bible" is against mixed race relationships dont you? lol.

The bible says nothing aBout mixed relationships. It only says relationships should be equally yolked which means christians with christians and non chiristians with non christians. Those shouldn't mix. Color is only skin deep. It doesn't determine anything about a person. We all look the same on the inside. I preffer to be around Christian ppl. I don't want to become friends with someone who I won't see in heaven because they chose to be stupid and call God fictional then try to speculate on what the bible says. I have always been and will always be a Christian and all christians know you endure plenty tongue lashings while defending God. Non belieVers are the ones tht beat jesuse so if he can endure it so can I. Like I said at first. U can call names all you would like but it idiots like you are tHe reason they bleep out the word God on TV. Maybe when u hit those fiery pits of hell to spend eternity you will wish you would have listened. The only people I pitty are your children because they are being raised by someone with no sense.

MMMM, seems like I do remember reading in MY Bible somewhere that the races were meant to be apart as with those of different tongues?

Do not feed the troll, IT is not representative of anything except the boring, insignificant life IT lives.
