(The Raw Story)   SC candidate for LT. governor proposes ending public education in the state because "we don't see anything in the Bible about state education." Am I the only one who REALLY doesn't want to see his ideas for reforming the judicial system?   (rawstory.com) divider line 264

Slives: FTA: "Then the states would then negotiate, perhaps taking out of their constitution platform, or the provision, that says the state had to provide education, and it would gradually be handed over to churches, families, and private associations," Moore said. "That's the way it was for the first 200 years of American history."

Hmmmm:
Wikipedia says: By the year 1870, all states had free elementary schools

I guess he is only off by 100 years or so.


If he were the kind of guy who could be convinced by facts, he wouldn't be saying shiat like this in the first place.

Virulency: if you're going to take the Bible literally you probably shouldn't be allowed to pick and choose what parts you like...


If you are going to take that book literally, you should be tossed in a farking nuthouse.
Just like anyone that believe Ents can walk around and that farking superman really existed and came from another planet.

frikking people shouldn't be allowed to vote or own guns. Not even drive cars.
Loonies.

If he wants Amish or Hasidic type committees where the religious remove themselves from the secular world that's fine.  Pull your kids out of school and create a voluntary under class.  But I have a feeling he is more on the lines of the Taliban, but Christian so its OK.

/what is Christian for mutaween ?

Mr. LT. governor candidate, please for the good of all humanity, become an ascetic, and disappear from public life.

If the SC retards listen to him and home school, but still pay for public schools through taxes, that would be OK.  Reasonable money for smaller, smarter classes?  Who wouldn't want that?

I'll say this.

The private market does have a solution to every problem.

Whether it is a moral or Christian solution is a different matter.

I don't think Jesus would cotton to this guys bullshiat.

You know what else wasn't in the Bible?  People of Western European extraction.  Seems like we need to get rid of those guys too.  Also, only Jews and Italians in charge of government - and Iranians, because of Cyrus

MrBallou: Not that he's advocating a theocracy. He's just got strong moral principles. Principles originated by semi-nomadic sheep herders 3000 years ago and perverted over the centuries by a rigid, power-grabbing priest-class eager to control the masses.

You know, strong Christian Principles.


Pretty much the entire OT was written since 600 or so BCE.  And pretty much just by urban intellectuals.  In fact, it is doubtful the sheep-herding phase ever existed in any meaningful way at all.  It was probably just bolted on to make the whole thing look "authentic" - the same way Americans consider cowboys to show authentic Americanness, even though the actual number of cowboys in the American population at any one time has been within a rounding error of 0.  Basically, it was always rigid, power-grabbing priest-class - the sheep-herder shtick was just there to beat the masses over the head with.

Diogenes: I never cease to be amazed at the depth and earnestness of some in their desire to return to a past that never existed.

It's truly impressive.


They idolize the 1950s, when public school was one of the things that America prided itself on most.

wxboy: Moore has previously claimed that 40 percent of public school students turn away from the church by the end of elementary school and 80 percent by the end of high school.

If that were true, why is Christianity still such a big thing in this country?


It really is amazing that such oppressed people keep getting elected.

The problem isn't moronic candidates such as this twit:  it's the morons who buy into his derp and elect him to office.

We need a test covering the basic functions of government - including separation of church and state - before people should be allowed to vote.

UncomfortableSilence: How do these people get elected?!

/Rhetorical question.  *looks at the south, shudders*


He's not elected to anything. He's "a GOP candidate" I don't even know if he's THE GOP candidate. For all we know, this idiot is some outlier whackjob with zero chance of winning the primary.

I guess I'd call this "the pundit effect" - the result of extremists who have taken over the political discourse in this country on both sides of the spectrum, throwing logic and common sense out of the window. Sadly, if enough of these morans get on ballots, eventually a few of them will get elected.

What's funny is you think this is true.

I just got my voter pamphlet in Oregon.

One of the GOP candidates for governor made Fark for equating gay sex as being a sin on par with murder.  Her own platform also asks us to resist Chinese communist business infiltration of Oregon.

One of the candidates with an actual shot at winning is running an ad where she 100% does not identify herself as a Republican, just that she is running for governor and will put a stop to Obamacare.

Why is the brand is so toxic that the people that want to be considered Republicans can't even mention it in their campaign ads for a Republican position?

The Democratic candidates are pretty bland, and all incumbents.

Magorn: Magorn: Semantic Warrior: Unoriginal_Username: ManateeGag: the Bible also isn't the book of law for the United States, so why are we referencing it?

If we use his logic, we need to get rid of our political system as well.

/someone needs to explain to him that biblical Jesus is a socialist

"Render unto Caesar"... so taxes would still be paid.

Ironically I often use that very biblical passage to prove to some of my more fundamentalist acquaintance that  Jesus Christ himself who was one of the first people ever recorded articulating the principle of exasperation of Church and state, and if'n he was fer it, they should be too

"exasperation" of Church and state...motherfarking autocorrect....though I kinda do like that phrase and need to work it in to conversations henceforth


I'm pretty sure your autocorrect was correct.  Jesus was usually exasperated with both the church and state of his time.  But I am so stealing it to use in my conversations as well.

I live in the Facepalmetto State and I can assure you that Mr. Moore's positions are not any sort of outlier in state GOP politics here.  Just look into the stories of the General Assembly forcing USC-Upstate to cancel a farcical play because of its lesbian perspective, or the bill to cut funding to CofC because of a book issued to incoming freshmen that addresses gays as people with regular-people problems, or the flap over one of Governor Haley's department heads being "allegedly atheist" and then "claimed to be Jewish" (totally missing that those are by no means either relevant or mutually exclusive).

So get a clue: this guy isn't a crazy.  He's very close to mainstream.  But then he's also running for one of the least important jobs in all of public office.  LTG in SC is powerless.  The governor can barely wipe her own ass without the GA signing off on it.

He just wants them to be pulled out of school so their families can raise them smart enough to push the buttons in the voting booth to vote for him and his kind for years to come.

He should also tell them to stop and govt help they are getting too.
