“Coach” Dave Daubenmire made the positively ridiculous claim that if parents will homeschool their children, they’ll all grow up to be millionaires because they’ll be so much smarter than those kids who go to school and aren’t afraid of his big sky daddy.
Daubenmire said that the original purpose of public education was to teach children to read the Bible but warned that the main goal today is to turn all the students into communists, which is why Christian parents must homeschool their children.“The devil has got a great game plan,” he said. “If you really love your kids—I’m just going to tell you the truth, if you really love your kids, if you were to personally educate your children, you’re going to create a millionaire because he’s going to be so much smarter than the average person he runs into. He will be a boss at 18 years old if you will homeschool him and teach him the fear and admonition of the Lord.”
Just under 2 million kids are homeschooled every year in this country. Tell us, Dave, how many of them are millionaires? And why aren’t you a millionaire if all it takes is reading the Bible and fearing God?
