I am still benefiting a great deal from my readings through the first few chapters of Acts. I hope to provide more reflections in the days ahead. One passage I have come to understand in a new and better way is Acts 4:13: “When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.”

Note that the Democrat’s add has a spelling mistake – “lobbiest.” Good promo for government schooling!
“Every child in America entering [public] school at the age of five is mentally ill because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our founding fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in [God], and toward the sovereignty of this nation…It is up to you as teachers to make all …of these sick children well – by creating the international child of the future. – Dr. Chester Pierce

A Clueless Pastor Wants More State Control of Education
By Bojidar Marinov
Headline Mischaracterized Pastor’s Position on Homeschooling
Last week we distributed our response to a column written by Senior Pastor Tom Stein of Christ Presbyterian Church in Richmond, Indiana. We entitled the article “Response to Outrageous Attack on Homeschooling.” The implication of the title is that Pastor Stein is opposed to homeschooling and is therefore, on the attack against homeschooling. This is a misrepresentation of Pastor Stein’s position on homeschooling, and we publicly apologize to Pastor Stein for this mischaracterization.
“There is no God and there is no soul. … There is no room for fixed, natural law or moral absolutes.” – John Dewey (Father of today’s Modern Education-Public Schools)
It is sickening to read about the teen suicides below and the persecution they faced. The article reports that a couple of hte parents are suing the school for not addressing the abuse and bullying. The schools have a responsibility in this area, but every time I read an article like this, I ask, “What on earth were the parents doing?” It is enraging to consider these parents who wallowed in the slave mentality of perceived choicelessness and kept sending their children into this world of misery and abuse. It’s the height of arrogance that parents would be suing the schools.
