Mark Karlin: Interviewer and admirer of Ms. Rosin
Listening to Rosin in our interview, we were admiring of how hard she worked to try to understand the mindset and religious fervor of the young people preparing to use the political world to advance their vision of a Christian nation.These are for the most-part, according to Rosln, home-schooled (by parents who wanted to give them a Fundamentalist education), very bright and highly motivated youth.
Interesting quote from Ms. Rosin right off the bat:
Home schooling was also popular in left-wing circles for a long time, but lately it’s been primarily associated with Evangelical Christians. It went through a great boom in the Nineties, partly through the influence of Michael Farris. As a constitutional lawyer, he fought for the right for families to home school their children. There are about a million home schooling families now.
Here’s another one:
Hanna Rosin: Diversity of thought is not that common when you come from a home-schooling culture.
Really? All of that is true, ay? Then again, she doesn’t homeschool and doesn’t get that either. I can appreciate her focus on Patrick Henry College, but it appears that she didn’t do enough research to be making blanket statements about homeschoolers in this particular interview.
