Christian Education

Oh Arkansas, you do surprise me every now and then….

These classes would also be electives; they would not be required curriculum. There are many people who believe that such a class is a good idea, provided that it’s in a non-religious format; a study of the history of the books of the Bible and correlating those to events discussed in other historical texts, perhaps studying different translations and discussing those differences, and other avenues of study that don’t include preaching. via Arkansas Legislature Wants Academic Study Of The Bible In Public Schools | Addicting Info.

God bless the Arkansas State Republican Party

If slavery were so God-awful, why didn’t Jesus or Paul condemn it, why was it in the Constitution and why wasn’t there a war before 1861? The South has always stood by the Constitution and limited government. When one attacks the Confederate Battle Flag, he is certainly denouncing these principles of government as well as Christianity. via Arkansas State Rep: ‘If Slavery Were So God-Awful, Why Didn’t Jesus Or Paul Condemn It?’ | ThinkProgress. So says Jon Hubbard… the latest in pro-Confederate candidates in Arkansas. Been there… done that….

Charlie Fuqua – Oh the things I’d like to do with that name…

“The maintenance of civil order in society rests on the foundation of family discipline,” Charlie Fuqua wrote, according to an excerpt published by The Arkansas Times. “Therefore, a child who disrespects his parents must be permanently removed from society in a way that gives an example to all other children of the importance of respect for parents. The death penalty for rebellioius children is not something to be taken lightly. The guidelines for administering the death penalty to rebellious children are given in Deut 21:18-21.” (here) Sounds a bit like Van Til’s best bud, Rushdoony. But here is the kicker…

The dangers of self-publishing, or – Slavery was a Godsend

Hubbard wrote in his 2009 self-published book, “Letters To The Editor: Confessions Of A Frustrated Conservative,” that “the institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise.” He also wrote that African-Americans were better off than they would have been had they not been captured and shipped to the United States. Fuqua, who served in the Arkansas House from 1996 to 1998, wrote there is “no solution to the Muslim problem short of expelling all followers of the religion from the United States,”

The End of the World sighted in Arkansas

This is what happens when Jim West leaves the country… just sayin… An estimated 100,000 fish have died in the northwest of Arkansas, the same state where up to 5000 dead birds recently fell from the sky. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said it suspected disease was to blame for the death of the drum fish, which floated in the water and lined the banks of a 30-kilometre stretch of the Arkansas River near Ozark, about 200km northwest of Little Rock, CNN reported on Sunday. Ozark is about 200km west of the town of Beebe, where game wardens

Solid Christian Beliefs… I wish fags would just commit suicide

Image via Wikipedia I hate writing things like that, because I don’t say that word, not even in Britain, if I had to ask for a cigarette, which of course I don’t smoke. But, this gets me. A member of an Arkansas school board wrote – Of course my kids will know better. My kids will have solid christian beliefs. See it infects everyone. Now, what are these ‘solid christian beliefs’?

Divorce, Custody and Religion

What worries me about this case, as I see it, is that it prohibits the free exercise of religion. I don’t particularly like Mormonism, however, I would not want a just to tell me what I can or cannot teach my children about God. Granted, they agreed to the stipulation, but if the stipulation is illegal, then the agreement should be void. It also gives the judge in this case to decide what is and what is not a Protestant religion. via :: Northwest Arkansas’ News Source A Benton County father found in contempt for violating a custody
