    Another Life in Fayetteville LOTD. This one is all about home ed and the Truth:

    Religious blinders create division

    Cheers to you, Kelly Biermann, for a well-written letter (“Home-schooling a positive experience,” Oct. 14). As a graduate of a North Carolina homeschool, I would like to add that you can participate in the North Carolina Home School Graduation. The graduation takes place every May at the N.C. Home School Convention in Winston-Salem. The ceremony is very similar to graduating from any public high school.

    The speech given to my graduating class was very moving. The speaker told us that he was very sorry because his generation and our parents’ generation had let things go for far too long. His speech (as I understood it) could be summarized to say that we the graduates have a lot of work to do to turn this country around, and this was almost 10 years ago.

    What I’m trying to say is that the general public fails to understand that this is “One Nation Under God” and it is “Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all,” but when you take God out of the picture it makes us divisible by money, race and culture. Where is the line that divides true liberty from liberalism? How can we provide justice when you throw the Judge out of the equation?

    The Bible may not contain the only laws, but it does contain the most important ones. If we as people would throw our religious blinders away and find true faith, then we could find the truth: Jesus.

    That may be the most religiously bigoted letter I’ve ever seen. Talk about blinders!

    So liberalism and true liberty can’t co-exist? These idiots confuse me.

    Why is he quoting his bible book of laws compared to the US pledge of alligience, as opposed to say, the US Constitution? It really is confusing, to see the ancient and the nouveau cited as if all the human history and development in between never happened or isn’t real.

    And even in what he argues in their favor, he screws up royally. Our parents’ generation was the one that put “one nation under god” INTO the pledge, not the ones who took it out because it hadn’t been there in the glorious good old days. (Maybe he’s right that this coincided with our slide to division, and so the answer is to take it back out?!)
