– Remember those 4 quotes from the law journals against the right of parents to teach their children? Ohio SB-248 is the first expression of their attempted implementation.
Paganism, because it can’t have unity by submission to the transcendental ethic of God’s Word, must strive to create an artificial unity by totalitarian implementation of whatever suits the fancy of the reigning elite. This savage intolerance to biblical faith has been over a century in coming. John Dewey, the great shaper of American education, wrote: “I cannot understand how any realization of the democratic ideal as a vital moral and spiritual ideal in human affairs is possible without surrender of the conception of the basic division to which supernatural Christianity is committed.” [A Common Faith (New Haven: Yale University Press, 1934), p51]. God, Dewey, insists, is dangerous because He divides humanity into saints and sinners.
Undoubtedly Christian schools will be next on the regulatory agenda for elimination. Ideas have consequences. Once entrenched the consequences are unavoidable.
Now is the time for development of curricula and tools that parents can administer to their children under the radar of State bureaucrats in the privacy of our homes. We must teach our children and grandchildren how to question the pagan belief system so they can see that paganism has no answers. The Emperor has no clothes. Example: in classroom discussion and projects on the environment, teach them to ask a basic question: “if we are the products of ‘forces that had no prevision of the end they were achieving’ (to cite Bertrand Russell), give me one good reason why I should care for the environment–give me a reason that is consistent.” Or, “show me observational evidence of evolutionary transition across specie-lines–just give me one evidence.” Or, “If we are all bags of evolving protoplasm, give me one reason why I shouldn’t bully those weaker than myself–after all it’s all about ‘survival of the fittest.'” Short videos like “Cruel Logic” on YouTube can be tools to learn how to use ideological “Judo” on the pagan state educational curricula.
