    Yeah, we all hate it when our kids do well in school. But then doesn’t Little Ricky homeschool his kids?

    Yes indeed as Scientic facts run contrary to religious beliefs and dogma.

    He claimed to, but then put his kids in a charter school. And took a hefty check for his “homeschooling” at taxpayer expense — which he refuses to pay back.

    My my…we sound angry this morning.

    Where’s the LOVE, laughing boy? LOL!

    And this cartoon is absolutely true. Even a few of Santorum’s fellow Republicans are taking him to task for that ‘Wha a snob’ remark, including Chirs Christie

    And if you want lies, try Rick Santorum.

    Isn’t there something in that precious Bible of his about NOT bearing false witness agaisnt thy neighbor?

    Just when you think Santorum can’t sink any lower he has to call Obama a snob. Since when is bettering themselves with a good education considered snobbery ?

    My family climbed out of poverty through education. Yes, we need all sorts of workers, and all jobs should receive a decent wage. But a machinist or a carpenter can be interested in learning other things. Working people don’t have to be uneducated.

    “Christians have been staying away from a normal education for quite a long time”

    -

    What makes you think that? Do you have some facts to back that up, or are you just stating your opinion as fact? I know LOTS of Christians who send/have sent their kids to school, insisted they get good educations, worked hard to get them through college, and are now saving so their grandchilderen can go through college. Yes, there are extremeist Christians, every group has them. And like other groups, the radical fringe gets lots of attention. That doesn’t mean the wild-eyed zealots represent the entire group, no matter how much their detractors wish it to be so. Instead of broad generalizations that impugn all Christians (or any group for that matter) how about you concentrate on the people who’ve actually offended you.

    Amen brother! Education isn’t the same as job training. A plumber can appreciate literature. A truck driver can find joy studying philosophy. The wonders of physics can amaze the file clerk or the cashier. You don’t have to limit your learning to just what you need to make a living. To do so is to limit how big your world will be. Why would anyone want to put themselves in that kind of prison, but for fear of what they may find? Man is an explorer, and not exploring who we are, and what is possible is to deny what we are.

    Of course that’s not what dan said.

    My degrees are in the biological sciences, by daughter is an RN, and, interestingly, my son decided to pass on getting a PhD in Physics, to get a “technical” degree in a field he REALLY LOVES instead!

    What amazes me is that folks like Santorum or “W” actually have ANY degrees, let alone graduate degrees. Does this reflect on how poor the quality of education is in some “elite” universities with their “legacy” student bodies??

    Of course, that the vast majority of “home schoolers” do so to keep their kids AWAY FROM the influence of society, favoring instead to “teach morals”, and science, based on a 2,000 + year old “book”, might explain why they value ignorance so highly?

    Much like religious organizations, the GOP discourages critical thinking. It would expose them.

    Exactly right. No questions; just vote (or believe) as we tell you to.

    “Christians have been inculcated into accepting their information filtered through the church”

    -
    I know lots of Christians Steph, and the percentage of them that allow their info to be church filtered is small. Don’t get me wrong, I know these people exist, and I dislike the image they project on me and our bretheren, but I still maintain that you paint with a massively oversized brush.
