There were a number of ways to view this piece in the Falls Church News-Press Online, but the view of homeschoolers and the homeschool movement is chilling:
It appears America’s religious fanatics are modeling their efforts on the success of radical Islamists in the Middle East, who reversed the trend of secularization in the region by hijacking education.
It is important to realize that the goal of many in the homeschooling movement is to create an army of zealot zombies who are committed to transforming America into a fundamentalist “Christian Nation.”
“We are not home-schooling our kids just so they can read,” said Michael Farris, the founder of the Home School Legal Defense. “The most common thing I hear is parents telling me they want their kids to be on the Supreme Court. And if we put enough kids in the farm system, some may get to the major leagues.”
Many of the cult-kiddies are coming of age and have already infiltrated Washington. Homeschoolers are well represented on Capitol Hill, and they played a disproportionate role in George W. Bush’s administration.
You can write off this writer for his own agenda, but that will not step homeschooling back from the ‘culture wars’ we have been drug into. I will type it again, the ‘culture wars’ helps politicians and political parties, not families.
