School For Home-Schooled To Help Conservatives Define "Contradiction In Terms" 

College for the Home-Schooled Is Shaping Leaders for the Right

[The Christian home-schooling movement] began in the early 1980's as a few thousand evangelical Christians began teaching their children at home in disgust at what they considered the increasingly secular, relativistic and irreligious culture ascendant around them — exemplified by the ban on prayer, the teaching of evolution and the promotion of contraception in the public schools.

It began as a retreat from reality, and it ends in the offices of the most powerful men in the world. Terrifying.

Sidenote: Please, please, please New York Times -- don't refer to it as "the ban on prayer" in schools. We First Admendment types are not the Secular Taliban. It was not a ban by any defintion -- anyone can pray in a public school anytime they want. The "ban" was on organized prayer led by a staff member or representative of the school. Because that would be, you know, the government endorsing one religion over another. And that's a thing that most real Christians have always been against.

Anyway, didn't Jesus say something about prayer being personal or not having to show off how you love him the most or something? I wouldn't know, I'm just a moral relativist.

Here are pictures of White People enjoying morally universalist fun:
