Reason 263: Because You Can Still Raise Your Children Outside Of The Police State

Did you ever wonder how, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” became, “It is against the law to exercise your religion” (Unless you’re a Muslim)?   But here’s the million dollar question. Do you think that this could have been accomplished without the help of the schoolhouse? Or do you think this morphing of laws just kind of… happened?

In this season of graduations. it’s that time of year when the local magistrates are out doing their level best to ensure the fragile and delicate well-being of the local atheist is not offended. So we will be seeing the usual slew of stories like this one:

Here’s What This Valedictorian Did After He Was Told NOT To Pray At Grad Ceremony

Don’t confuse this with a victory. It’s not. It was a small, and soon to be forgotten rebellion, a rebellion that the institution willingly rolls with. I’d personally prefer that the graduation rebellion had been against the Gospel being taught at the schoolhouse on graduation day with the schoolhouse responding with confidence that the Gospel is a good thing.  But the only magistrates I see with confidence are God haters. It doesn’t surprise me that a well grounded Christian becomes Valedictorian, no more than it surprises me that 95 percent of the rest of the students have been trained and indoctrinated by the schoolhouse and the campus culture; all of which will go on to vote for strong atheist candidates who will reinterpret and redefine words until the documents upon which our freedoms are established in government become the very documents that put us in chains.

As for as this situation is concerned, good for them. I’m glad. And it doesn’t surprise me that a well grounded Christian becomes Valedictorian, no more than it surprises me that 95 percent of the rest of the students have been trained and indoctrinated by the schoolhouse and the campus culture; all of which will go on to vote for strong atheist candidates who will reinterpret and redefine words until the likes of this young man will be dealt with ever more severely.

But that day is not yet. You’re still free to not bet on the stacked deck that is the public school system when it comes to your child’s eternal welfare. You are still free to make your bet where the house rules are in your favor, which is your own house. And that’s as it should be.

Reason 262: Because You Don’t Want Your Children To Be Idiots?

First a caveat. I’m sure there are children who have been homeschooled that are this clueless. And we can assume that some of the people who knew their history were not homeschooled. I have no problem with that. But what would people say if most of the homeschoolers being interviewed were this  ignorant? Well, that’s not the case, so I guess we’ll never know for sure. Yet we kind of do know… don’t we?

Still, there’s one thing I’m confident of: that most, if not all, of these people spent 13 years in the institution. And it was there that they got their “education”.

It would hurt me bad if my children were this ignorant, even at their current young ages. But what would hurt me more is if their compass always pointed inward, and they became laws unto themselves and were set on a course of destroying their lives through one bad moral decision after another.

Reason 261: Because Religion Is Good, Unless It’s Bad

Your child will be religious. How do I know that? The same way I know that birds build nests. They were designed to build nests. They can’t not build nests no more than your child will not be able to not be religious. So you have only one question to answer. Which religion will your child eventually buy into?  That’s it. It’s a simple question, but also an oh so important one.

So what did the institution teach us about “religion”? That it was closed minded of course. Remember Copernicus?  The Crusades? The Salem Witch Trials? The inquisitions? The Scarlett Letter? Sure you do. What do all these have in common besides the fact that all concern religion? Bingo! You got it. They all deal with a caricatured view of Christianity, which as far as the state is concerned is synonymous with the word religion and excludes all other religions, especially Secular Humanism.

But what about throwing homosexuals off the tops of buildings, or honor killings or brutal misogyny? Sorry, wrong religion. That’s Islam. Please don’t confuse that with evil!

Or what about book burnings? Or academic tyranny? Or closed mindedness? Well… that’s only bad when one religion does it, as we can see here:

Portland school board bans climate change-denying materials

You see, when you’ve set out to suppress truth, then truth is dangerous. When you’re a liar truth cannot be risked. It must be suppressed. We must always keep a watchful eye out on ourselves above all lest we become the very thing we hate and not even realize it.

Make no mistake, Secular Humanism is a religion. It may come in the form of environmentalism, deviant sexuality worship, government worship, moral relativism, atheism and much more, but it is a religion. But what’s worse, it is the established religion of the US.  What I’m saying is that America is not only not a Christian nation, it is an anti-Christian nation. Who can go to the schoolhouse, look around a bit, and conclude anything else? It’s not what we say we believe that matters. It’s what we do. And what we do is indoctrinate children into a religion that is hostile to Christianity. Your hard-earned tax dollars are used to indoctrinate your own children into the religion of Secular Humanism. Deny it if you like, but deny it at your children’s peril.

So what do religions do? They suppress the truth because they cannot stand in the light of the truth. We can see it here:

In a move spearheaded by environmentalists, the Portland Public Schools board unanimously approved a resolution aimed at eliminating doubt of climate change and its causes in schools.

“It is unacceptable that we have textbooks in our schools that spread doubt about the human causes and urgency of the crisis,” said Lincoln High School student Gaby Lemieux in board testimony. “Climate education is not a niche or a specialization, it is the minimum requirement for my generation to be successful in our changing world.”

The resolution passed Tuesday evening calls for the school district to get rid of textbooks or other materials that cast doubt on whether climate change is occurring and that the activity of human beings is responsible. The resolution also directs the superintendent and staff to develop an implementation plan for “curriculum and educational opportunities that address climate change and climate justice in all Portland Public Schools.”

Only a religion would believe that only a few societies have the ability to change or alter the temperature of their planet. Yet that’s exactly where the schoolhouse wants to take your children. But know this. In the end, it’s not about levels of mercury. Indeed, no one denies that there was an ice age. No, it’s about resting power through fear. And there’s no better tool to put the fear of “climate change” in the hearts of your children than the very temple of Secular Humanism, the schoolhouse.

But your children don’t have to grow up this way, with constant exposure to just-so stories and outrageous postulations. They could grow up, trained in a good religion, your own. And they make even bring some sanity back into the this world, or at least raise the generation that will. Who knows? But I do know this. I would never willingly subject my children to this non-sense.

Reason 260: Because You Want To Train The Heart According To Reality

There are two different philosophies when it comes to education. One is to enforce your will on the outside and hope the inside will come along behind. The other is to just change the inside, that is to say, to change the heart. We think the latter way is not only the right way but the only way to educate.

In this age, there seems to be a preoccupation with what a person does and not so much with what he thinks. We are told to, for example, refer to some men as a she even though we know he’s a he. We’re told to deny reality and create an alternate reality. We are to pretend that what is not, is.  With this philosophy, Law and coercion are king because it’s the externals that matter.

But we believe that it is the heart that must be trained. Sure, I don’t want my daughter to dress like a prostitute, but more than that I want my daughter to not want to dress like a prostitute. One requires law and external coercion. The other requires heart training. Keeping this in mind lets look at an article I found:

School District Ignites Controversy With Proposed Restrictions on ‘Leggings,’ ‘Skinny Jeans’ and ‘Other Excessively Tight-Fitting Pants’

It seems the schoolhouse is upset about what those poor souls placed in their charge are wearing. But It’s not because their attire makes them look like prostitutes and hoodlums. The way those in the schoolhouse see it, their choice of clothes is causing bullying. Who’d of thought?

But I found this comment by a parent most interesting:

“If bullying is the impetus, do a better job of teaching the kids to be nice. Don’t tell them how to dress.”

Here’s a parent who gets it… well kind of. He understands at least that it is the heart that needs to be trained. But he’s totally confused about who’s job that is, or to what higher order one should appeal in order to discover what “niceness” is. Apparently he’s fine with an institution that invites human butchers, God haters and the depraved in to help train his children, but he still wants them to train his children to be nice. Unfortunately, that’s what the institution actually has plans to do, but he might be surprised one day to discover that his definition of “nice” is different than the institution’s definition.

But that’s just it. Goodness and niceness are words that appeal to an order that supersedes our own wills and desires. It is not nice or good to lie. I think we all get that. But it’s also not nice to lie to someone with psychological problems by telling him that he doesn’t’ have a problem.  And it’s not nice to lie to those who know he has a problem by telling them that they’re the ones who have the real problem, then teach ohters to start calling those who now have the new problem not-so-nice names like ______phopes.  It’s not nice to teach generation after generation that they don’t have to think critically, that all they have to do is to call people names, and label them evil when those people have ideas that are different. In short, it’s not nice for a small group of people to turn the masses into slaves, which is exactly what all of this kind fo teaching prepares them to be. For the slave, the institution IS the higher order.

But the higher order supersedes the institution. And unfortunately for the institution, the higher order has always been, and it will always be. It is the reality. As for me, I’m teaching my children that they don’t get to decide right and wrong. They can only abide by it, or rebel against it. But I also do my best to train them to desire to abide by it. And dear friends, no institution can or will do that for you, nor were they ever meant to according to the higher order. This is one job, if you want it done right, you’ll want to do it yourself.

Reason 259: Because It Is A More Rounded Education

We tend to compartmentalize our lives. But when it comes to raising children that’s a fatal mistake. For one, it’s impossible. This meme, I think, says it all:

Screenshot (113)

This is compartmentalizing. We don’t send our children to the schoolhouse for religious teaching. We send them for an “education” as if the butchers at Planned Parenthood, the LGBT, the ACLU and the union thugs are only hanging out around there because they’re committed to making sure that your children know how to read, write and do math. No, they are committed to a rounded education. They are committed to their own future, even if they have to destroy the lives of children to make that future certain.

As for me, I have different plans.

Reason 258: Because Others Are Doing It?

Well, maybe that’s not a good reason. But others are doing it in increasing numbers. Here’s some interesting news from North Carolina:

In one state, more children homeschool than attend private schools. Why that shouldn’t shock you.

The article gets into the reasons this is happening, but it focuses on just a few of what it figures are prominent reasons… like Common Core, moral and religious teaching and such. As for me, I think it’s awesome. But I also realize that the more people who do this, the more attention it’s going to get from Goliaths like the NEA and the rest of the monsters who run the asylum. So we get this from the article:

The National Education Association, the country’s largest teacher’s union, declared in a 2011 resolution: “The National Education Association believes that homeschooling programs based on parental choice cannot provide the student with a comprehensive education experience.”

But, there is quite a gap between what the NEA believes about homeschooling and the actual results from homeschooling. According to Education News:

Recent studies laud homeschoolers’ academic success, noting their significantly higher ACT-Composite scores as high schoolers and higher grade point averages as college students. Yet surprisingly, the average expenditure for the education of a homeschooled child, per year, is $500 to $600, compared to an average expenditure of $10,000 per child, per year, for public school students.

Who’d a thought?  A child learns better when being taught by someone who’d give their very blood for that child than by a union thug*.

 

Note:

(*)Of course, there are lots of fine teachers in the system. But that’s just it, it’s a system. And if these fine teachers act like decent human beings they will be fired pronto. Because any decent human being would not lie to their students and tell them that they’re nothing but flesh machines and so… survival of the fittest.  And oh yea, if you act like, “survival of the fittest” we might put you in prison.  But decent people need to work, and they have a vocation. And for some, that vocation is teaching. And as for me, I’m glad they’re there. Thank you to all who slug it out in the system every day. You are a warrior.

Reason 257: Because People With Psychological Problems Need Help, Not Given A Job Teaching Your Children

But they are given jobs teaching your children, and the institution, from the president down, is going to cram their ideas of sexuality down your children’s throats. But you don’t have to let them. Watch this confusing mess happening more and more in the institution:

Reason 256: Because There’s No Place Like Home

A friend told me the other day that this was not as much a reasons-to-homeschool blog as it is an anti-government school blog. But it’s a small percentage of children who are educated in private schools, and even less at home. I will admit that I do consider private school better than public school, but I’m quick to add that the bar is very very low. And with private schools you still get the campus culture, and a conveyor belt education patterned after the public school failure.

…And then there’s this:

The Left Is Now Targeting Christian Schools In Its Potty Crusades

Leftists have only found one institution that they’ve not wanted to control, and that’s the family, which they’re doing everything in their power to destroy. They love, love, love centralized power because centralized power means slavery for the masses. It has been the family, and it’s power decentralizing effects, that will always stand between liberty and their “Utopia”.

The institution puts signs on its bathrooms and then it become confused about the meanings of the words on those signs. I’ve yet to see a home with signs over the bathrooms. Nor have I ever seen a home that spends a million times its income, and yet spends an enormous amount of energy fretting over the meaning of the words male and female like that was more important than their exploding credit card bill. Who would ever send their children for an education to a segment of the population that does something like that?

Maybe the private schools will survive this better than everything else. But please don’t blame me if I’m not willing to stake my children’s future on it.

Reason 255: Because Of 15210 Hours

A friend did a little math and concluded that by teaching her children at home she will have experienced 15210 hours with them that would have otherwise been hours spent under the supervision of an institution so twisted that it thinks that the butchers at planned parenthood are the best thing ever and that unnatural sex acts are the craze of the age, and that is confused about the definitions of words so basic as marriage, female and male.

15210 hours is a lot of wow moments. It’s a lot of discovery, conversation, relationship, and life including all the ups and downs that would have otherwise been handled in the campus culture with peers and people with less than good intentions for your children. But instead those hours were experienced with the two people that loved them the most. Rather than being under the authority of strangers, most of whom did not ever even  know her children’s names or any of the particulars that make them special and loved as children, those 15210 hours were spent with people who would gladly spill their blood for them.
