And Now, Some Reasonable, Accurate Coverage of Christian Education

Hahahahahaha! Just kidding! It’s more of the same!

This time it’s Mother Jones enlightening us with “wacky facts” kids will supposedly learn in Louisiana’s Christian private schools. They provide a list of these facts, which I’m sure are accurately reported and not distorted in any way and treated with every bit as much respect as any of the “facts” that come out of climate science or gender studies departments at liberal institutions. Some examples:

SCOTUS enslaved fetuses: “Ignoring 3,500 years of Judeo-Christian civilization, religion, morality, and law, the Burger Court held that an unborn child was not a living person but rather the “property” of the mother (much like slaves were considered property in the 1857 case of Dred Scott v. Sandford).”—American Government in Christian Perspective, 2nd ed., A Beka Book, 1997

“Global environmentalists have said and written enough to leave no doubt that their goal is to destroy the prosperous economies of the world’s richest nations.”—Economics: Work and Prosperity in Christian Perspective, 2nd ed., A Beka Book, 1999

Um, and your point is? I think these two examples in particular are less “wacky facts” and more just “facts.”

I’m going to guess that this was a pre-emptive strike against Bobby Jindal just in case he was named as Romey’s running mate. Gotta tell everybody how insane those Southern Christians are!
