This story fascinates me:
It fascinates me because the schoolhouse already teaches what this club proposes to teach after school, yet many parents have no problem with it when the name “Satan” is removed during the school day. This is their proposed curriculum from the article:
The curriculum for the proposed after-school clubs emphasizes the development of reasoning and social skills. The group says meetings will include a healthful snack, literature lesson, creative learning activities, a science lesson, puzzle solving and an art project. Every child will receive a membership card and must have a signed parental permission slip to attend.
Someone else will have to enlighten me as to how that’s any different from the public school, including the denial of the existence of God.
But there is an interesting insight given in this article that confirms my point:
They point out that Christian evangelical groups already have infiltrated the lives of America’s children through after-school religious programming in public schools, and they appear determined to give young students a choice: Jesus or Satan.
To “infiltrate” is a nefarious affair. One would think that the public school system was a glorious thing, indeed pristine, which has never ever in thousands of years allowed any religion whatsoever into its midsts, and then here has come these evildoers, these wild-eyed, big-Bible-thumping, knuckle-dragging neanderthals attempting to indoctrinate these poor children into some crazy religious scheme. They put themselves, not as the indoctrinaters, but as the traditionalists, attempting to protect their sacred traditions from usurpers. Of course, history tells a different story, but who knows anything about history? It’s public school we’re talking about here.
Adams sais that our constitution was meant for a moral and religious people, and that it was fit for none other. If you’ve ever wondered what he meant, just think about this school club for a minute or two. But it doesn’t have to be this way for your children. They don’t have to be raised, trained and indoctrinated by a Satanic state. You can keep them home, and indoctrinate them in the ways of truth.
