Reason 139: Because The Schoolhouse Is A Conduit For A Different Set Of Values Than Yours

Here is an article from Life Site News worth reading. It does a good job of giving insight into why the world if falling apart around us, and why freedoms are going down the drain at an alarming rate:

Dear Christians: It’s no longer enough to work hard, raise a family, and hope to be left alone

Pertinent to this blog is the following excerpt:

Which brings us to our present unpleasant realization that from a cultural perspective, the traditionalists and conservatives have been thoroughly beaten in the war for the culture. For the most part, we never even showed up. We raised families, built farms and businesses, and attended church functions while secular revolutionaries took over the entertainment industry, the media, academia—and finally, the public education system that now dutifully serves as a conduit for secular “values.” Prayer is out, queer theory is in, and many a middle-aged conservative has found occasion recently to splutter his coffee and gape at his newspaper: “How did things change so fast?”

I would say that it is more truthful to say that he is “Spluttering his coffee”, not because of what he sees in the “newspaper”, but rather what he sees his child doing, saying and thinking. The schoolhouse experience will have far more influence on those things than he ever did, unless, of course, he decided to forego that experience altogether.
