teaching lies

you cannot teach western or american history without teaching christianity unless you lie. The declaration of Independence says we are "endowed by our creator with inalienable rights". Understanding this phrase is fundamental to understanding what america is. The people who wrote this were steeped in a christian education and world view.



you cannot teach someone the english language properly without at least a rudimentary knowledge of the bible. there are over 1,000 idiomatic uses of the bible that occur in american english usage. if I say "Romeo & Juliet" and you know nothing of the story, then we have failed to communicate.
Thanks from Nienna

it is pretty hard to teach western history as a whole without christiany but US history on the other hand is a different story. for many years the US was one of if not the most secular nation when it came to the writing of the constitution. yes there was the great awakening around the same time which was a massive religious revival but our government was based off of philosophies written by men like Descartes and Locke who were dieist and strayed away from traditional religion. but as for english i can not deny that christianty's role in its creation can be compared to Shakespeare since they both created many words and phrases that are still being used today.

It is undeniable that the King James Bible is responsible for the codifying of the english language.

most of the signers of the declaration of independence were graduate of divinity schools

In the space of a few years the american colonialists went from hanging quakers and burning witches to making freedom of religion the first among their bill of rights. the how and why of that happening did not come from deists. we can argue that, but that argument never occurs in US public schools because the whole discussion is censored out of the curriculum.

Absolutely agree that the understanding of the phrase is fundamental to understanding what America is.

Too bad you got the phrase wrong....I guess that would explain why you don't fundamentally understand what America is.

Nope..

The fact that you don't even know HOW you got the phrase wrong is very telling.

one thing i do like about that statement is argument in schools. for someone like me who is really interested in history and politics school is mind incredibly boring because all of the interesting parts of history are left out in favor of political correctness. but anyway i am pretty sure a good portion of the founders were deist who were pulling ideas from the enlightenment. but you have to remember events like the enlightenment only truly affect those who are wealthy. so that can explain why during a philosophical movement a good deal of the colonies was still spending their time burning witches at the stake.
Thanks from Kate

No the left teaches ignorance..through ommission. really they shut religion up in a box, hope it does not stick it's heads out. leaving people ignorant of other cultures. Ignorance breeds fear, fear breeds hate hate breeds violence, violence breeds war.
