(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 254

MyRandomName: Why is it fark only approves links of obscure conservative loonies running in elections.

There are just as many unknown liberal crazies who run.

Oh yeah, fark libs and their down voting on anything that makes their "team" look bad.


The man has a point.  I've seen plenty of stories that were basically just really, really stoned hippies saying stupid things.  Hilarious, but never greenlit.

And given that it's likely a Cotton-Poly Blend, the Bible actually says we should send him there by hurling pointy rocks at him


I do not believe that it is specified that the rocks have to pointy.

In the many places that the bible instructs you to murder others it certainly does not emphasize clean or quick deaths. In general it goes for slow and extremely painful.

Wonderful moral center that book provides.

mike_d85: Aquapope: 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?

SC politicians tried for years to set up a system where homeschooled kids and private school kids' parents are exempt from a portion of their property taxes because they aren't using the school system.  I'm sure he's going to pick up the supporters of that bill with this.

/It was bi-partisan.
//Somehow that had loads of money supporting it...


Would childless people get to opt out of school tax?
 
2014-04-25 03:13:42 PM  
Well, let's see... if we follow these biblical precepts closely, then I guess we can go ahead and eliminate the following in the schools:

Driver's Education- Unless, of course, it's for horse drawn chariots (remember... nobody drove cars in the Bible!)
Most Varsity Athletics-  No Football, Basketball, Baseball, Soccer, Golf, Rifle Marksmanship,  Cycling (only Wrestling... Perhaps Gymnasitcs... Track & Field). My gosh... no 2nd Amendment in the Bible, guys.
School Lunches- Of course, either Bread will fall from Heaven, the kids can eat all the Locusts, or... just get a couple of loaves of bread & some fishes... that'll feed everybody.
Computer Sciences.... No IT or Programming... whip out that Abacus and tally up those scheckels
Prom & School Dances... well, I guess they would replace it with the orgies... maybe a step up...
Astronomy becomes a 5 minute lecture only (Earth is the center!!!... nothing else matters)

They're scared because their god is a complete pussy. You can whip his ass with a couple horses and some carts:

The Bible doesn't say anything about lieutenant governors or democracy for that matter, which makes me question why he would want to participate in activities that aren't in the Bible. He is obviously a tool of Satan sent to deceive us, I rest my case.

I've lived in the South my entire life and there are plenty of wonderful people and plenty of not-so-wonderful people, just like most every other place. And since you obviously seem to fall into the latter, and we don't need any more of you, I'll kindly ask you to stay out if you find all of us so repulsive.

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.


The first 200 years of American history is from 1492 to 1692, so he may be right for 200 out of 500+ years.

I believe it. It is convenient for them to display a perspective that didn't make them look like a$$hats protecting slavery, like they were the better people so to speak. Perception is reality, even though the capitol for the confederacy was located in SC. Re-writing the history makes it easier to swallow that your ancestors were giant douches.

No it's really in there. Although you have to keep in mind that it was written way back in 1971 times were different then.

I don't think anyone have ever been bared from office because of that clause so because of that it's never been challenged or something like that. I wish they would just take it out makes us look like farking idiots. But that would have to be approved by ⅔ of the derp squad in the GA just to get it in the ballot. Not going to happen.

Well, someone just needs to try to run for office in S.C. as an open atheist (knowing they won't win, that isn't the point)... I'm sure someone will prop up this law thinking they are doing a "noble" thing for S.C., and then it can go through the courts and get pushed out.

Probably the lack of atheists wanting to be within 100 miles of S.C. though prevents this from happening.

All it would take is one candidate to try and run that didn't believe, and when they go to shut him/her out from running for an office under that clause he/she could sue saying it was unconstitutional. I'm pretty sure they would win in the courts, but then again its SC judges so I wouldn't hold my breath.

Also, I'm sure NC residents only have their child's well-being in mind, you know, with all those "liberal schools trying to teach my children evolution and not my values and beliefs." If they want to indoctrinate their children send them to private school, or even easier homeschool them.

You and I basically said the same thing..... and although S.C. judges might be idiots... even a somewhat heavily conservative US Supreme Court couldn't make an argument to keep that legal.
