Quoting Quiverfull: Evil School Boards?

by Robert Simonds from Citizens for Excellence in Education three different quotes on education and politics.

“As the church watches from the sidelines, the ungodly elect atheists and homosexuals to school boards and legislatures to enact policies and laws that destroy our Christian children and discriminate against Christian families.”

“Atheistic secular humanists should be removed from office and Christians should be elected…Government and true Christianity are inseparable.”

“We’ll take away their power and their money. Money comes from students. We’ll break their backs by taking 24 million kids out of the public schools.”

    “We’ll take away their power and their money. Money comes from students.”

    Can someone explain to me how these two sentences have anything to do with each other? To me, they are nonsensical.

    Each public schools gets a certain amount of money from the state for each student. If they pull children out of the schools, it will impact the local schools directly.

    ‘Government and true Christianity are inseparable’??! So much for separation of church and state.

    “Atheistic secular humanists should be removed from office and Christians should be elected…Government and true Christianity are inseparable.”
    Actually, no. Unless you were to say there were no Christians under, for example, Nero. Because Christians were not in goverment then.
    On the other hand, European goverments are so pro-church that they give actual tax money to churches. Yet Christians are few there. (My personal opinion is that there is a causal relationship between the two: Christianity really does better when not in goverment.)

    Thanks.

    Maybe I misunderstood what he was saying. I thought he meant taking the kids out of school would affect more than just the school system.

    Evangelical AmercianChristians(such as Quiverfull) wish to establish a THEOCRACY in the United States which will be the same as the Fundamentalist Muslim governments in the Middle East that the Evangelicals fear and despise. People who aren’t Evangelical Christian Fundamentalists should take this very seriously because their Dominionist movement expresses Zero tolerance for people who aren’t of their faith and who don’t convert. They have stated that if they gain control of the government, they will establish Fundamental Christian Theology as law and imprison non-believers for “re-education”(remember Chairman Mao’s “re-education” camps?) and if they don’t convert execution is an option. This is religious Fascism and unfortunately we have people in government and high places who are listening intently to these very dangerous Faux/Hyper Christians. They have extolled their followers to take over school boards and local governments first. They are comparable to a cancer, start small…grow bigger…take over.

    If his words are true, I have no idea how secular countries, Muslim countries and Israel operate.

    Except in North Carolina. Still waiting to hear what happens on that bill.

  • Rae

    By that standard, the original 12 apostles weren’t true Christians, and true Christianity didn’t happen until the time of Constantine.

  • Alison

    Actually, homeschoolers still pay taxes that support public schools.

  • Cheryl

    Yes, Alison, homeschoolers pay taxes that support schools. However, schools are funded based on student enrollment and attendance. If the kids aren’t in the seats, the schools don’t actually get the money. Therefore, pulling kids out of your local public schools directly impacts them. In my small elementary district, declining enrollment and decreased funding has cost about a hundred teachers their jobs and caused the closure of 2 of our schools.

  • Anna

    Not that I don’t believe this but could you provide some links or references for the reeducation camps, and execution for failure to convert I would find this interesting.

    It died the death everyone expected it to, as it was blatantly unConstitutional. But it made the people who came up with it look good to the radical right, which was its true intention in the first place.
