I dont know that I would classify keeping the kids in government schools as disobedient to God, YET. But it's coming awfully close.

C'mon, NiCad, show some balls!
You KNOW you want to declare *everything* secular as being disobedient to your imaginary skydaddy.

You're just pissed that Horace Mann's plot to make public schools Protestant indoctrination centers for Catholic and Jewish children failed.

Huh? I know public schools were used against Catholic and Jewish children but Horace Mann?
\"What the church had been for medieval man, the public school must now become for democratic and rational man. God would be replaced by the concept of the Public Good, sin and guilt by the more positive virtues of Victorian morality and civic conformity, and mankind would emancipate itself once and for all, not only from the relentless gnawings of a Puritan conscience but, through its own self-attained enlightenment, from the endemic evils of poverty, ignorance, violence, disease, and war.\"
I really don't think his vision was for religious schools.
By the way, that link doesn't work for me. Anyone know where to find the thread??
As a matter of fact, a search of the forum turns up 0 posts for the member NiCad. What gives there?

Sounds more like public schools are just 'righteous' enough for your pocket book.

And we should care about that, why?

Why oh why do I get the feeling that "Awfully close" will be "now" when his last kid graduates/drops out?
