Accelerated Christian Education
While state monopolies on education are problematic, state support of pseudo-education is tragic. As Bruce Wilson reports on the new voucher program in Louisiana, religious schools there are filling children's minds with nonsense and bigotry. While the Accelerated Christian Education curriculum denies the science of evolution, it is the distortion of racism by their fellow travelers at A Beka and Bob Jones University that is most disconcerting. As Wilson notes, portraying the Ku Klux Klan as a respectable agent of social reform, construing South Africa's apartheid as multiculturalism at its best, and praising the Trail of Tears forced march of Cherokees from Appalachia to Oklahoma as a blessing that led these heathens to Christ, is a bit much to swallow.
