I received an email from a public school wanting to join my classes. The email included this note.
This doesn’t appear to be Christian, but their (sic) are biblical resources here….as a public charter we can’t pay for non-secular classes….just checking…let me know.
Here is my reply:
I am a Christian and I do teach from a distinctly Christian worldview. Of course, secular comes from the Latin word saeculum which means 100 years, or the current age. Since I am living in the current age, one could argue that my classes are secular. And, so is this email. 🙂
Anyway, I doubt we will be able to work together. I need no more students. And, I definitely need no more paperwork. Last of all, I refuse to take money from any government organizations (though they are quite happy to take mine).
If you take the king’s dime, you are the king’s man. The sooner American’s start saying, “No, thank you” to Uncle Sam, the sooner we will experience freedom.
This includes saying “No, thank you” to that massive indoctrination welfare boondoggle known as the public school system.
I apologize for the inconvenience this causes. I truly do enjoy helping people.
Ironically, I am responding to this on the fourth of July. For those who do not know, the fourth of July is the day we won our independence from a taxation rate of 1%. Could have been as high as 2.5% in the southern colonies. Think I am kidding? Check this out: https://www.garynorth.com/public/8215.cfm
It gets better. According to a study by the Cato Institute, the U.S. ranks 20th in total freedom. The U.K. (we won our independence from the U.K.) ranks 9th. Among the top ten for freedom in the world today are five former British colonies.
Ooops. Maybe we shouldn’t have broken up with our British girlfriend.
In terms of personal freedom, the U.S. doesn’t even make the list. That’s right. We are somewhere behind Poland.
Instead of personal freedom, we get this:
Ready to join the fight for freedom? It’s easy.
First, pull your kids out of the government school system.
Second, start refusing government money. All of it.
I don’t expect Americans will do either.
Oh, well. At least there will be some pretty good food available today.
