    it's what parents are SUPPOSED to do.

    Hired teachers, supposedly 'public" servants enforcing THEIR political ideaologies on OUR children, is something they are supposed NOT to do.

    I'd willingly horsewhip and face brand any teacher I caught trying to brainwash my children.

    They'd DESERVE it!

    Re: SCOTUS blog: DOMA Unconstitutional

    This decision might never have happened, or even gone to the SCOTUS, if government had not already become involved in the institution a couple of generations ago.

    Easy marriages, quicky divorces, the women's movement, sexual liberation, and the Lee Marvin palimony case all watered down marriage until it now means less than ever in any western culture. Polygamy may be next but so what? If they are honest and decent people involved than it shouldn't matter to any of us.

    No wonder so many folks took their kids out of public schools.

    In addition, the estimated homeschooling rate?the percentage of the school-age population that was being homeschooled?increased from 1.7 percent in 1999 to 2.2 percent in 2003 (not shown in tables or figures).

    Still looking for CURRENT rates.

    these are kids you DIDN"T get to brainwash.

    And there are millions more in fundamentalist church affiliated schools, (not parochial) who ALSO avoided liberal/socialist brainwashing.

    Most of these children are being taught self reliance and respect for traditional values.

    The right is NOT a dying breed.

    The left is self destructive. They create non-sustainable government.

    So which cities are going to be without electricity, when Obama shuts down the coal fired power plants?
    Something tells me this crazy rightwing post was intended for another thread, but you know, it hardly matters. Rightwing posts are all crazy in the same way.

    I was anticipating, perhaps incorrectly, where you were going with the question since the only real difference between homosexual and heterosexual married couples is that heterosexual couples can, in the majority of cases, conceive naturally while homosexual couples cannot.

    That aside homosexual couples get the same things out of marriage that heterosexual couples do.

    But those fundamentalist schools don't brain wash their students?

    Why would these couples care about societal recognition? The couples I have interacted with are strictly about the benefits...

    No. They teach the principles the childs parents WANT taught, or the parents remove them from the school. the parents pay EXTRA for such private education. they also pay though realestate taxes for public education, whether it's of value or not.

    chafes my butt to pay for liberal teachers to preach their nonsense.
    That's ONE of the things we need to change before it's too late.

    probably.

    I don't presume i'd be lucky enough or careful enough not to get caught. And probably not lucky enough to draw a jury of my 'peers" that believed it was justified.

    But I haven't spent my life seeking approval from others. I give approval. To others, and to myself. I have to live with the fella I see in the mirror. fortunately, he and I have the same POV.


    oh, my children are all grown and successful and safe from liberal schooling.
