Exit strategy from public schools: even secular families should look for a way out.

Wow what an amazing idea. A school w/out kids trying to tell other kids God hates you because you're homosexual. Wow, a school where one religion tries to act it's far superior then the others. That's like the best idea I've ever heard from the religious right. It almost seems like utopia, too good to be true. Now if they could only figure out an "exit strategy" from America then America could start rebuilding the respect it's lost due to the religious right voting in George Bush.

I wonder why they don't consider Fred Phelps for president?

Religious schools are for the kids that can not make it in a real school.

An amazing twist of history there.

1. It was not secular interests that founded the U.S. You can find all kinds of (false) historians trying to rewrite history. But, it's ridiculous as it gets saying non-Christian motives founded the U.S.

2. Public edication's condition is easily correlated (unless you refuse to be objective) the following trends of the last 2-3 decades:

a. family/home life is so bad for many, many kids they are not emotionally equipped to perform in a learning environment.

b. big government - increasing government stepping in to fill in the gap where personal responsibility, only, can correct the issue. From dead-beat parents to excessive-upward-mobility parents, kids are pretty much a lower priority to many parents' selfish values.

c. secularism has increaesd over the last 2-3 decades.(I am not advocating Creationism or even the Bible in a science class). Science and intellectualism are not filling the needs of children of-and-by-themselves.

It doesn't matter what you believe, any parent should have the right to make decisions for the welfare of their children. Vouchers, tax plans that foster entrepreneurial/private performance-oriented schools would go a long way. Feds won't go for it, NTA/etc. lose control, jobs, funding (as well as a central pipe to shove selected philosophies down your kids' throats). As for the values war going on in American, I won't even bother to comment.

There's a reason foreign/immigrants are filling high-skills/high-education jobs faster than Nth generation Americans. The former simply work harder, come from more sound values, and know what freedom's worth. The latter, for the most part, are indeed complacent.

The simply use the Bible to show they're not Christians at all, nor do they know the Bible.

MOST are *professing* Christianity, which is a far cry from practicing it.

Christ said false religion would abound until He returned. He also placed personal responsibility on us to 'take heed', which means we are the one's responsible for weeding out false ones. The criteria is given, all over the place, in scripture, explicit, easy-to-understand statements. You don't need a Pope or a minister telling you what it is.

Religious bigots are no more righteous than those that try to use religion to fit their own values, saying God accepts it. Both are wrong.

Oh, OK, the USA wasn't founded on the seperation of Church & state. Um, OK. The problem with right-wingers complaining about the "values war" going on in America don't seem to realize them voting into office Bush based on his "values", if we can call Bush getting to be president as a result of America voting, allowed Bush free reign to throw our country in to a war for oil and thus has basically ruined our economy and reputation. Who cares if we send our country to a hell in a handbasket in the eyes of the world as long as we maintain 'values' which bigots can easily deal with.

... McMike

Because the world loved us so much before we elected Bush...?

The term separation of church and state historically was a term used meaning...

"keep the state out of our church"

Its quite rediculous that we try to turn it into

"keep the christians out of our government"
