    My kids come home and tell me some of the things their teachers have said and I am so proud when my kids don't buy into their propaganda and even speak out against it themselves.

    There are always going to be groups that are perverted enough to try to influence the young and vulnerable and they best we can do is provide our children with the fact needed to think for themselves and to see through the propaganda.
    Religions do exactly that. Influence the young and vulnerable. Get then indoctrinated at a very early age. Is it teaching or brain washing?

    We seem to be on the same page there.

    Communism is something that's widely abused as a term, socialism too. I got banned from a gun forum once because I explained the difference between them to someone. They said I had to be a Communist to know that, so I was given the perma-boot.

    Knowledge is a bad thing I guess.

    Depends on if you agree with what they're peddling.

    Trying to stay away from my personal feelings toward that statement the difference is if your kids are being taught something at chruch, CCD, Sunday School, whatever, the parents are the ones taking them to that church or a person who has the legal right.

    They are not being taught a cirriculm by the government that the parent has little choice in the say.

    There is a world of difference and do not know how on earth you equate the two.

    Ok, I'm going to pretend that was a serious comment and not a joke. Women have had equal pay for equal work for decades.
    You are confusing "sex" with "sexuality". Women have rights in 2012, it's not an issue. It's fine to teach about "women's rights" as that is a legitimate issue pertaining to history, as in the right to vote and other concerns. It is NOT ok to teach about sexual preferences and how one group does it as opposed to another group. It's ridiculous.

    I'm so disgusted by these weak, whining women who couldn't fight their way out of a wet paper bag.

    Women need to grow up, be strong, defend themselves and their country. Not go on TV and whimper about having sex and "no one will pay for their birth control." Waaaaaaa. Hey, there's always taxpayer funded abortion via Planned Parenthood.

    News alert** PP doesn't pay for mammograms, *someone* got that wrong...and a lot of other things too.

    I hope this answers your question.

    Our Founding Fathers based that on uniting our country as one Nation. Obama's idea is that we become part of the One World Union...so, no, that's not going to fly.

    This is starting to get too political... and it was started by an admin.

    Facts:
    PP does not pay for mammograms. But Susan B. Komen foundation does fund them AT PP centers:
    The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation reversed its decision and continues to fund breast cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood health centers.
    Women have had equal pay for equal work for decades.

    And, since it's ratification on Dec 15, 1791 we have had the right to keep and bear arms... Well sort of...

    And just because there's a law about equal pay for equal work.... it ain't so. and that has been proven time and time again, in court, and punished by juries of peers throughout this country.

    Can you show me where it was Obama's idea was for a One World Union..? I thought that was part of the "Skull and Bones" that GW belonged to... and his daddy... or wait, was it the Rothschilds? The international bankers?

    Can you tell me who runs the trilateral commission?

    Speaking of E Pluribus Unum, what is a Masonic symbol doing on the one dollar bill?

    Somewhere back before 1776 a bunch of guys got together and conspired to overthrow the government... It was a conspiracy! It was treasonous!

    Oh the horror...

    STOP political baiting please... It doesn't belong here

    You know, I find it interesting that for someone who is anti-indoctrination, you are sure trying to convince a lot of people that they are wrong and you are right....

    Nobody is neutral or objective. So what? Everybody wants others to see the truth, or at least merit, of their position. Educators do it, religious people do it, atheists do it, buddhists do it; so do pro and anti-gun people...

    I will be very glad when the election is over and we won't have so many threads to close.

    This was an the margins for awhile but it has finally run of the rails
    Sometimes I wonder who the old man in the mirror is....

    Lord, Grant me a good sword and no need to use it.
