Vlog: Inside Accelerated Christian Education’s Politics

Vlog: Inside Accelerated Christian Education’s Politics July 16, 2012

I have decided to make the radical move into vlogging. For my technophobic readers, this is video blogging. Don’t worry, I’ll still be doing written blogs too.

My experience has been that people struggle to imagine Accelerated Christian Education from mere descriptions, so I’m going to show you.

I’ve heard that YouTube users don’t click on videos much over four minutes, so I’ve deliberately kept this short. A lot of detail was sacrificed in doing that. So please let me know what you think of the format and if you get a sense of the curriculum from it, and I’ll make future vlogs better.

In the video, I referred to the Conservapedia Conservative Bible Project. Although I still squint every time I look at the page, I don’t think it’s a Poe. Here’s what they say:

“Liberal bias has become the single biggest distortion in modern Bible translations…

As of 2009, there is no fully conservative translation of the Bible which satisfies the following ten guidelines:

1. Framework against Liberal Bias: providing a strong framework that enables a thought-for-thought translation without corruption by liberal bias. For example, the Living Bible translation has liberal evolutionary bias;[5] the widely used NIV translation has a pro-abortion bias…

7. Express Free Market Parables; explaining the numerous economic parables with their full free-market meaning.”

It’s a phenomenal work of conservative arrogance.
