From the Atheist Revolution blog:
Christian Extremists To Invade Public Schools
Oh no! Not Christian extremists!
Why is it that anybody who's not a Left-Winger or an atheist is always referred to as an "extremist"? Why do the Left Wingnuts and the atheists, who make up a minority demographic, labor under the delusion that they somehow represent Mainstream America?
"Our nation's children are in danger. A combination of Christian extremism and government officials afraid to enforce the rule of law threatens their education. This in turn jeopardizes America's future ability to compete in a global economy."
By what stretch of the imagination does this atheist alarmist think that religious belief will somehow affect "America's future ability to compete in a global economy"? Does this guy really believe this bunk? Unfortunately, I'm sure he does. Even worse: he has no facts or figures to back up his lame accusation, AS PER USUAL with the typical, Christian-baiting, liberal atheist.
The greatest threat to our ability to compete in a global economy is the dumbing down of our public schools. Kids that graduate from high school unable to read at their own grade level are going to have one whale of a time trying to compete in a global economy more than some kid who believes in God.
Ironically, home-schooled Christian kids are smacking down the undereducated Publik Skewl school students in many localities with their basic academic skills, so much so that even atheists are starting to home-school their kids.
I realize that this is probably not anything new for my regular readers, but even you may be surprised by the latest assault on our public schools.
And this panic-filled, paranoid rant is an assault on Average Joe's intelligence.
Proclaiming "a revival of faith and grace" at America's public schools, Christian extremist groups are organizing three nationwide efforts to force their ridiculous religion into our schools. In a press release issued by the Scriptures in Schools Project and publicized by Christian Newswire, we can learn about the following events planned for September 23-29:
"See You At The Pole" 9/26
"Scriptures in Schools Week" 9/23-9/29
"Adopt-A-School-for-Christ" Campus Challenge 9/23The organizers expect that, "Millions of Christian students, along with teachers/staff, parents, and clergy, will participate at Public Schools across America."Bob Pawson of the Scriptures in Schools Project and a public school teacher in New Jersey calls on our children to "Bring your Bibles to school: Tote 'em and quote 'em and use 'em in class."
Sound the alarms! Students are once more going to be allowed to enjoy their Constitutionally protected rights of freedom of worship on a public school campus! Danger, Will Robinson! Christian "extremists" are going to destroy our kids' minds and ruin America's ability to compete in a global economy!
Is there nothing more comical than a liberal alarmist?
