what kind of nonsense do they teach in christian schools?

Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by Free Thinker, Jul 2, 2012.

  1. And here are some things found in textbooks put out by A Beka Books and Bob Jones University Press, which are widely used in Christian schools:

    - Only ten percent of Africans can read or write, because Christian mission schools have been shut down by communists.
    - “the [Ku Klux] Klan in some areas of the country tried to be a means of reform, fighting the decline in morality and using the symbol of the cross… In some communities it achieved a certain respectability as it worked with politicians.”
    - “God used the ‘Trail of Tears’ to bring many Indians to Christ.”
    - It “cannot be shown scientifically that that man-made pollutants will one day drastically reduce the depth of the atmosphere’s ozone layer.”
    - “God has provided certain ‘checks and balances’ in creation to prevent many of the global upsets that have been predicted by environmentalists.”
    - the Great Depression was exaggerated by propagandists, including John Steinbeck, to advance a socialist agenda.
    - “Unions have always been plagued by socialists and anarchists who use laborers to destroy the free-enterprise system that hardworking Americans have created.”
    - Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential win was due to an imaginary economic crisis created by the media.
    - “The greatest struggle of all time, the Battle of Armageddon, will occur in the Middle East when Christ returns to set up his kingdom on earth.”

  3. I think they teach that it's not normal to put your weenie up another boys butt.
     
  4. you must have had a bad experience with your boyfriend this weekend. you sure are fixated on that subject.
     
  5. Let me just say that

    - “the [Ku Klux] Klan in some areas of the country tried to be a means of reform, fighting the decline in morality and using the symbol of the cross… In some communities it achieved a certain respectability as it worked with politicians.”

    is a quote from the standard AP American History textbook used in public schools across the U.S.
     
  6. FT where do u dig this stuff up?

    I attended private catholic school for at least 10 years of my life.. i don't recall ever reading or being taught ANY of the things you listed. I am also not religious at all. Find better sources dude, you simply believe and regurgitate anything that supports your 'view'.
     
  7. you do know that bob jones university does many of the textbooks for christian schools and homeschoolers? i dont think the catholics use bob jones material.
    you surely dont think that christian schools use standard textbooks? the reason christian schools exist is to censor what they dont believe. you know science based things like evilution.
     
  8. The reason that most Christian schools exist in the South is because the public school systems are so bad (and underfunded) in many southern states that many middle-class parents rather pay to send their children to a Christian school -- especially in rural areas.

    Most of the Christian schools in the South use the EXACT SAME TEXTBOOKS as the public school and teach the exact same courses (Honors/AP/etc.) as public schools - they just do it more effectively with smaller class sizes and higher graduation rates.

    You are totally off-base with your criticism of Christian schools. 99%+ of Christian schools do not use textbooks from Bob Jones University. It is absurd to point to a few extreme examples and try to declare this as mainstream. Do you believe that all Muslim schools in the U.S. only teach chanting the Koran and how to blow yourself up.
     
  9. no they dont
     
  10. I live in the South. and YES the Christian K-12 schools in the South use the EXACT SAME TEXTBOOKS as the public schools. (How are you going to teach AP and Honors courses if you do not use the material required to teach these courses for the tests?)

    You are totally wrong about your assertions and the facts do not support your claims.

    There are only a few outlying fundamentalist Christian schools and some right-wing homeschoolers using educational text books from Bob Jones University in the U.S. I will note that most of the fundamentalist Christian schools using these textbooks are not located in the South.

    It would be nice for once if you actually had facts to back-up your claims.
