READ IT AND WEEP

Filed at 11:57 am under by dcobranchi

Darby found a discussion of homeschooling in which nearly all of the posters are completely ignorant. I mean, they know absolutely nothing about homeschooling. Unbelievable.

I read thru it – scary. The barrier to posting a reply is pretty high too. Seems to be set up to make sure only those that agree with them ever get to say anything.

Personally, I think we are better off with them ignorant. If they knew better, they want to try it 😉

Gosh. I’ve only read three posts so far and can’t believe my eyes. It’s news to me that we don’t have a computer. I guess I better run enroll her today so she’ll have access to a computer.

Thank Goodness for the post from Bumble Bee Tuna…A homeschooler (his/herself?) Compare his/her posts on real homeschooling to the No-nothings & admitted G-school advocates. Notice that none of the Ney sayers & fundy fearers can even begin to address the well thought out comments of Bumble Bee.

Collectivist atheists. Jeez, how sad. You’d think if anybody could think outside a prevailing paradigm, it would be them.

Man, that is just painful to read. I guess I’d be labeled a religious “fundy” immediately.

Is it just me or do a lot of folks like this want to use their disbelief in God or “fundy” morals (whatever that means) as an excuse to ignore homeschoolers and feel better about leaving kids in public schools? I ask because I know there is a wide variety of beliefs here :o).

I’m an atheist who advocates homeschooling, as well as many other sensible libertarian ideas. I can’t stand the local atheist organizations here in Houston. I tried to join a couple but their communist rhetoric made me sick. One evil witch of a woman actually came right out and said that the Republican President needed to be killed so that a Democrat President could come to power. (Wants to spit…)
