...Even if they are funded by the state government?Legally, we are discussing private schools who have the right to teach that the sky is purple if they want to.
Like I said, they are funded by the state government.Parents don't have to send their children to that particular school. That is the beauty of the voucher system, that the money can be put toward whatever school the parents believe is best for their own children.
I'm not a lawyer, but I doubt you have much of a legal case. If you did, I'm certain that there would already be lawsuits challenging the program.
That leaves us with the ethical question - whether you are entitled to a say in something that is happening not in your community, and that you are not helping to fund.
Would you feel the same way if a school that was funded by the state was teaching children that Allah is the one true god and everything opposing him is the work of Satan, and that the Taliban was just representing cultural pride?
All things Christian? I think you'll find a good deal of Christians who think this is utterly insane. It is only the farthest reaches of the fringe who wouldn't.If you would have just said "I don't think those 14 points are appropriate subject matter for schoolchildren" I wouldn't have any problem with that. I take issue when you (or anyone not involved in that particular community) talks about what action needs to be taken, because it's not your place, or uses a thread like this as a springboard to bash all things Christian.
You do know that most Christians don't believe in dragons, and that literalism is a relatively new phenomena restricted to a handful of sects, right?
I am perfectly well within my "place" to criticize whatever I want.
