Apparently upset that Public Schools have this bad habit of educating their kids, delegates to the Southern Baptist Convention are asking the group to come up with an exit strategy for yanking their kids out of school:
Delegates at last year’s annual meeting passed a resolution urging parents and churches to “to exercise their rights to investigate diligently the curricula, textbooks, and programs in our community schools.”
“We are commanded biblically to train our children in the nurture of the Lord,” said Roger Moran of Troy, Mo., who sits on the executive committee and offered the proposal with Texas author Bruce Shortt. “The public schools are no longer allowed … to even acknowledge the God of the Bible.”
Moran, who owns a company that makes construction supplies, is a father of nine children, ages 18 months to 18 years. All have been home-schooled or attended Christian schools, he said.
“Everything that I believe as a Bible-believing Christian is not allowed to be taught in the public schools,” he said.
Because we all know that Belief trumps Fact any day of the week. Their slogan should be: We’re Southern Baptists and we’re working hard to keep our kids stupid by any means possible!
