Actually I'm asking myself, why would subby link to an article that's like walking into the middle of a conversation?

Feels. Really screwed me up when the principal of my school showed up to my hospital room, under false pretenses and told me I was, "possessed by the demon of anorexia"... OooOoOOoo!

A child should be taught the FACTS.  A child should be taught the RELIGION of their parents.  A child should be taught CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS.

If you study the bible, you'll notice a few facts:  1)Christ, the Apostles, the Disciples never, ever forced their beliefs on anyone.  2)They helped and loved everyone except those who blatantly followed satan (remember the former witch who tried to buy the Holy Spirit from Peter?)

3)It has to be a choice.  A willful choice- and forcing it down a kids throat only makes them angry, sad, confused, and narrow minded- or in short, they'll turn out like the Westborough Baptist Church.

Okay, I have to ask, under what false pretenses?    Did he tell the hospital he was your father or other family member so he could see you? Did he try to "lay on hands" or something pervy?

That is pretty messed up either way.

cuz subby is author. I threw his link to a secret facebook group I'm in because everyone there is in the trenches on this topic, but it's a little obscure for most of Fark.

Because I wrote it. I'm honestly kinda not sure about the value of using FarkUs for this kind of thing - it's not very cool and all? - but the blog manager is a standup guy and is trying to get some momentum to maybe get these shiat-show schools banned in his country.

Either way, I figured offering it was the best I could do for Johnny and if nothing came of it, then nothing came of it.

not as long as they can trumpet the 1st amendment as a justification for the willfully ignorant indoctrination of helpless kids.


He's in the UK. The US is where this rot came from, we're kinda considering it a lost cause.

Beating children bloody?

Stories like this make you wish Dexter was a real person, and lived in Australia...

/stay classy, Christians
//that principal should be nervous...Oz has a lot of empty space to apply "shoot, shovel, shut up" corrective measures.

I'm sorry, but, fark that guy.

Another thing extremist fundamentalists get wrong is the self-appointed halo of being "the only one who understands God's plan, and the spiritual superhero this city deserves."

My mother tried to foist a few American "history" books on my by Ken Ham (maybe Hovind, I don't remember) from a similar fundie homeschooling course on me to teach to my children.  She got a terse but polite "No".

Afterwords, I was laughing a little bit at the absurdity of it all, but I was also profoundly saddened that she had fallen for that crap masquerading as fact.

Spent 2 years in a ACE school, spent a lot of time facing the corner because I was very vocal about the bullshiat. My parents were asked not to send me back for my senior year.

They were less than thrilled when I went to Good News Club on Thursday carrying a Ouija board.
