Do we want schools teaching biblical science? Meaning, that the earth is around 10 thousand years old or less or that the only acceptable view of the world is, Christianity. Is that really what you want?

Given the link I posted of the "test", it seems pretty clear that isn't what they are teaching. Their questions and answers given are pretty much inline with a view of an objectiveness sense of the world around them. I am still questioning the "lord" entry in that paper as to who exactly put that on the paper. It is clear that the child had no grasp of the lesson given their grade and their answers on the paper too.

Yah right. The founding father weren't "Christians". They merely believed in God.....I don't, by the way. I guess they were agnostics running away from the oppressive "Christians" of Europe.

How you considered writing novels? Your very creative....

What makes you think it doesn't? I guess those tribes in the Amazon who have never even heard of the bible are immoral? Even though they live in balance with nature and don't go around killing and bombing or even bothering other innocent people? Tell me, how exactly are they immoral?

Seriously, brush up on your history. The founding fathers were in no way Christian, if anything they were deists.

Just because someone mentions the word God doesn't mean they are talking about the Christian god. Surely you can understand that right? It's a very simple concept. I believe in God but I do not believe in the Christian god, Hindus believe in god but they do not believe in the Christian god, Muslims believe in God but they are not Christians.

If you can't separate the term God with the Christian god that is your own issue.

Consider Thomas Paine's Age of Reason...in such he spoke of his belief in God, but never mentioned Christianity the religion.

ETA: Never mentioned adhering to Christianity -- he references it throughout. Just to clarify.

Trash propaganda.

[snipped]

Suggesting the United States wasn't founded by G-d fearing Christians is comical. George Washington, as President, lead the entire Congress to a Christian church for group prayer. He proclaimed national days of prayer.

Presidents take their oath on the Christian Bible.

And why doesn't this "article" point out that this is a charter school? Answer: because this is trash propaganda designed to denigrate people that fear G-d and teach morality.

To equate this with what muslims do in any muslim land is laughably ignorant at best, calculated deception at worst.

If someone is rumored to have vaguely insulted the founder of the death cult or the koran they face capital punishment in accordance with law, that is, if a mob of muslims doesn't burn them to death first. In Indonesia it's ILLEGAL for non-muslims to even use the word "allah."

Here is what it comes down to: the school "warn[s] students about the evils of rock music, drunkenness, pornography, premarital sex, homosexuality, sorcery, witchcraft and other subjects..."

Liberal media promotes and pumps such vile filth into the minds of children 24/7/365. How dare G-d-fearing Christians stand in the way of such progress!!?

[snipped]

But tell children that they should love their neighbor as themselves and love and fear G-d!?!?

OUTRAGEOUS!!

Are you sure its a school or the district, because regardless if it is chartered or public, it falls under the district.....but maybe that is a jew conspiracy too....

Taking an oath on the bible is a joke and shows just how backwards our country truly is.



Matthew 5
33 “Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not break your oath, but fulfill to the Lord the vows you have made.’ 34 But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. 36 And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. 37 All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.


Taking an oath on the bible is the equivalent of slapping Jesus in the face.

By the way, you seem really angry. Why is that?

And what kind of school gets the liberal media jew seal of approval? The kind that teaches sex to 5 year olds, preaches post-modern moral relativism, promotes fornication amongst children by handing out condoms, and arranges baby murder (aka "abortion") for students.





Here is what it comes down to: the school "warn[s] students about the evils of rock music, drunkenness, pornography, premarital sex, homosexuality, sorcery, witchcraft and other subjects..."


Beyond the "liberal media jew seal of approval" nonsense, let's parse your own words. You describe the school that gets approval from said cabal and then go on to approve the school for the second quote above. Interesting view.

By "warning" the students of these subjects clearly they have to give examples and material for the students to understand their subjects. Why introduce children to drunken behavior, pornography and sex, premarital or gay? The witchcraft stuff is just insane babble from lunatic fringe but really, you are condoning teaching kids about porn and having sex? How liberally jewish of you.




And what kind of school gets the liberal media jew seal of approval? The kind that teaches sex to 5 year olds,


From your own source:


Despite then-Sen. Obama’s support for the proposal to have mandated sex education in kindergarten in CPS, the bill did not pass and never became Illinois law.


So no, no five year olds having anything mandated regarding sex ed. But hey, keep up the lies and bigotry. It makes your argument that much easier to refute!

Great! That's one. Jefferson, that's one for my side...this is ridiculous. Obviously, almost all immigrants were from Europe which was Christian-other than pockets in the south left over by Muslim invasion. This below "101".

The point of the thread is La....Now...

My point is where is your bleeding heart for all those forced to pay for educations, relocate for the purposes of that preferred education in religious schools. Centers of "evil" like Notre Dame. Evil people like JFK et al.

"that's their choice" is the likely response. I say to you that's that family's choice.

You have no problem protecting the "rights' of that family and care not one wit about the 10s of thousands of families adversely affected by your outside intervention.

How compassionate of you. How tolerant.

I do not believe in God. I am not a Christian...BUT, I allow them their beliefs and more importantly, the right to decide their life-style, their education system as much as I do yours.

I both respect those that are true Christians AND your right not to believe.

What is particularly troublesome is your blindness to the negative impact to those in La.- the vast majority- that your interference engenders.

My last word on this-I'm not changing your mind, nor you me-is, it's their turf butt out! I will butt out from yours...

Then we can all survive this. Does this family and teacher suffer for it? Yes. So have many Christians in the other direction as well. Neither perfect, but survivable.

Good night.

You obviously don't know what's going on here nor did you read the articles posted because no teacher is suffering from this, no teacher is "bitching" (as you put it earlier) about the situation at this school. It is the teacher mentioned in the article that ridiculed the student for not being Christian and not answering her Christian biased test question with Christian dogma. It is the teacher that called the students Buddhist beliefs "stupid".

Please, if you want to join a discussion at least know what the discussion is about before debating it. You obviously have no idea what the articles are about

While I agree with you here you seem to be ignoring the issue here. The article talks about a boy who is Buddhist who attends this school, and as far as I can tell he is forced to attend this school because it is within his district. The article also talks about a teacher calling Buddhism and the Buddha "stupid".


Just ask the superintendent of schools in the parish, Sara Ebarb, who has said, “[t]his is the Bible Belt” and who asked the parents of a Buddhist student recently if he “has to be raised Buddhist” or if he could “change” his faith and suggested to them that he should transfer to a school where “there are more Asians.” Religious objectors, Ebarb has said, should simply accept the pervasive of official Christianity in Sabine Parish public schools. Easy-peasy, folks, just convert!



For example, “on a handout asking ‘What mountain did Moses supposedly get the Ten Commandments from?’ Roark crossed out the word ‘supposedly’. She also has told students that the Bible is ‘100% true” and that ‘scientists are slowly finding out that everything in the Bible is accurate.’” This is convenient, of course, since, as Roark told her class recently, Buddhism “’is stupid. Speaking about the founder of Buddhism, Siddhartha, she proclaimed that ‘no one could stay alive that long without food and water.”


How would a Christian feel if their school's teachers started calling Jesus stupid and the bible a lie and gave tests with questions clearly biased toward Buddhism and anything other than a Buddhist answer would end with a "wrong" mark

(In response to your last paragraph) The world has hated Jesus for a very long time now. He said the world would hate us for His sake, so this would be nothing new. We would still (and will still) continue to pray for anybody who has not given their heart to Jesus Christ.

I doubt any sane person could ever hate Jesus or the message he taught. Just because someone doesn't believe he died for our sins doesn't mean they hate him. Jesus is the most celebrated figure in the history of the world so I have a hard time believing he is hated by this same world, history says otherwise.

Lots of people are hated by someone somewhere I'd imagine, so Christians aren't really alone in the category of "persecution".

The world has not hated Jesus. Some people may be skeptical that he even existed, and some people would be skeptical that he was even divine in some way. But that does not mean that these people hate him. Disbelief and skepticism and not synonyms to the word hate.

The question wasn't about Jesus being hated.

It was about teaching students that the only right answers were Buddhist answers.
