In WITHOUT SHAME WE DO NOT REPENT — PART 1, we considered three videos. We will diversify somewhat in this post. Nonetheless, we will start with a video.
What is ironic is that adults (and college students are young adults) can get away with pretending to “abort” a baby, but a seven-year old cannot get away with making a make-believe gun out of a pastry. Even the Liberals at CNN are amazed, but the parents signed the school handbook. So they supposedly knew what they were getting themselves into.
Check out Gun-Shaped Pastry Leads to School Suspension for 7-Year-Old. Here is the Fox News version: Boy, 7, suspended for shaping pastry into gun, dad says. That little boy shows more wisdom than the people who are suppose to be teaching him.
An Explanation Of Freedom Of Religion
What is going on? Why such incoherent absurdities? Consider what education is about. To some extent we want to prepare our children for the grim task of survival; we want to give them vital skills. However, that little bit of knowledge is dangerous. Unless we pass onto our children a proper set of values, then we have not prepared our children to survive. If we never teach our children that this life is about preparing for the next, they behave like predatory beasts.
Unfortunately, we have created an education system beset by political machinations. This systems requires parents to send their children to schools run by politicians they do not trust to be taught by teachers they did not choose. And why? Because that’s what our parents did to us. What we forget is that it was not always that way, and it has gotten much worse.
What can we do about this mess? Because our schools have failed us, we each need to learn the basics of government. What is crucial. That is the right that is at the center of all our other rights. That right is the right to practice our religious beliefs. Please listen to Rev. Rick Warren on Religious Freedom.
You want to skip the formalities. Warren starts his discussion about 7 minutes into the video. From there on it is well worth listening to the whole thing.
Does Warren talk about school choice? No, but he does explain that freedom of religion involves a whole lot more than just going to church.
