Dumbest pro-homeschool post

Recommended Posts

here was one father named Jesse, who had a better idea. Wanting the best education for his youngest son, he sent David down the road to a popular and modern Philistine school. Among the Philistines David attended school for 13 long years. Then one day a Philistine army came to conquer Israel, and all the Hebrew men prepared for battle.

Jesse: Quickly son, prepare for battle! We must fight the Philistines!

David: The Philistines? What’s wrong with the Philistines?

Jesse: They sacrifice their babies as burnt offerings!

David: Yeah sure, but just the unwanted ones.

Jesse: Their women are harlots!

David: Hey now, I fooled around with several Philistine girls and they seemed alright to me.

Jesse: They hate the Almighty God!

David: Who’s God?

Jesse: The only God! The one true God of Israel!

David: Oh, we aren’t allowed to talk about Him at school. And besides…

Suddenly, a giant came to the middle of the battle field and issued a challenge, “I defy the ranks of Israel this day; give me a man that we may fight together.â€

Jesse: That man curses God and threatens Israel. He must be killed!

David: Killed?! That’s Big Guy Golia. He’s my best friend, Dad! We sit together every day in Antisemitism 101. What is your problem, anyway? If the Philistines are so bad, why did you send me to their school?

With that David abandoned his father and his father’s God, and joined the people who had raised him. In the evening, David and his best friend Goliath led the charge and defeated the Israelites.

What the ever-living fuck did I just read?

Stupidest thing I've read today.

They are just trying to push their own homeschool curriculum.

If you can stand it, read more of their blog entries. You'll discover it's apparently forbidden to even mention Jesus' name in public schools, and a whole lotta other crazy shit.

First sentence in their blog post 'Gov. teaches Kids, Kids teach Parents?!': It amazes me how many people still believe that government schools have no alternative motive.

I believe the word they mean is 'ulterior.' At first I thought, well, that's just a simple mistake. But no, they meant to use that word, because walla! they used it again in the last sentence of that paragraph. :doh:

I haven't figured out yet how many children they have, but between the above example and the general tone of the other blog posts I've read so far, I have little hope that they, or any other children using the curriculum their parents are peddling, are getting much of an education. :?

So the lesson is....keep your kids out of school, so they can properly hate and fight the outsiders.

Sounds like it!

Pretty much what I got out of it as well. Kill those who don't believe what you believe. You are to also keep your children away from anyone who has a different background and/or different beliefs than you do.

They'd be so disappointed to learn that I actually read the book of Job for an English class at my public high school. And then a year or two later, the school drama club performed the play "JB" which is based on the book of Job, too.

What is truly ironic about this, is this is exactly what they accuse all Muslims of doing to promote terrorism.

I get so angry when people feel free to lie and then insist that their children grow up in a world built on those lies. K-12 in public school, and I read sermons, religious poetry, and Bible passages as part of my education, because Christian faith did motivate the actions of many of the movers and shakers of history--just not in the way that these liars like to lie about!

Oh, hey, latest mind-blower? The man who wrote the original Pledge of Allegiance was a Baptist minister AND A SOCIALIST. As proven by primary sources, i.e., the man's own letters. He wanted to put in the the words "equality" and "fraternity" as well as "liberty," but realized that it wouldn't fly.

SOCIALIST SOCIALIST SOCIALIST. BOOGA BOOGA! :lol:

Ah yes, I remember Antisemitism 101 well from my public school days. Talk about a blow-off class. :lol:

I also love the part where the most horrible outcome of it all is that David might befriend and care for someone different from himself. Considering what Jesus had to say about that particular topic, it's safe to say that this homeschool curriculum isn't lacking in Hypocrisy 101.

From all we hear of it, we might imagine that before modern schools came into existence in the 1800′s, people were savages! How could they even speak to each other? How could they bare to look at one another, without feeling extremely uneasy.

Homeschoolers are better at getting nekkid than state school kids? :pink-shock:

However, without going into all that, I just want parents to look passed the dogmatic argument and apply reason.

But not spelling.

Now, lets ask the how and why. How does a mob of immature children, encourage our children to socialize in a mature and professional manner?

Or grammar.

(I don't normally pounce on mistakes and I've undoubtedly screwed up many times. However, if you're going to tout yourself as providing the Best Ever Means Of Learning, it helps to show yourself learned).

This is great too:

"Why should young impressionable children be exposed to children and strangers that have backgrounds and beliefs that are hostile to their own, at an age when they are still learning the difference between right and wrong?"

Because that's HOW they learn the difference between right and wrong?

If you bring your children up in a perfect soap bubble, never letting the dirty outside world touch them, one day the bubble will burst. Are you prepared for that?

I have NEVER understood this argument. I would think you would want your children to be exposed to as many different things as possible while you were still able to guide them and not "throw them to the wolves" as an adult with no other experiences.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.
