    He didn't believe that Jesus was God. I don't know whether he believe in "a god" or not, but he didn't believe that Jesus was the Son of God, so in the modern conservative sense, he wasn't a Christian.

    Read what Toothpicvic said. Your request is irrelevant to anything that's been said here. Please read the thread again.

    The big problem with teaching OPINIONS in schools
    IS THAT IS OPINIONS

    Opinions == not facts

    Not facts being tought == misinformation

    Misinformation == progogadna

    Propoganda == **** this I am leaving this ****ed up nation..

    I cant even post a proper resoponce I am so angry..
    The first thing is B.C.E/C.E vs BC/AD. I don't see how any of this even matters. I would wager the average person does not know what either of those stand for. Many people believe Christ lived, and so we use it as a benchmark for history, there is no reason to change it. I don't see how changing it to BCE/CE really changes it because you'll just have to explain to people that it's just a politically correct form of the time after Christ's supposed Ministry.

    The second thing it brings up is it mentions the UN undermining US authority in it's own nation. This CAN be a problem! Is it? I would say not right now. But this is fact that the UN has the ability to Undermine us. Albeit not much as it is but it is still there. So that is not opinion.

    Judeo-Christian part is debatable. I would say they were religious and leave it at that. Separation of Church and State... I'm not sure what they are trying to say about that I will have to look that up I'll leave it alone for now (So hey we meet the first part that is actually opinion)

    Hey guess what America is a "Constitutional Republic" not a "Democracy" this is cold hard fact! SO I don't see how it is evil evil (Conservative) Propaganda.

    America DID get rid of the Gold Standard.... HEY Another Fact! It's not opinion after all And yes the US dollar has been in decline. ZOMG it's like it's a fact or something!

    Has the curriculum been unfairly screwed? Maybe, maybe not. This, this is opinion.

    So we got 1 (possibly 2) out of 5 that are BORDERLINE opinion (I'm not counting the last one because that is the article, they aren't teaching that sentence in the schools I would think).

    And the 1 that we do have is basically semantics. So I really don't see why you have such a problem with this.
