I heard about this while listening to the radio, and it's about time.

High schools and Colleges are now teaching kids that Jesus was a socialist, and the founding fathers did not believe in God. These folks will be going into the belly of the beast and telling the truth about our Judeo Christian founding.

FFS, this nonsense reminds me of the “The Ministry of Truth” from 1984

Jerry Falwell Jr. and Charlie Kirk are some of the biggest losers imaginable.

First, the name is just absolutely idiotic. One has to wonder if the two were just drunk and thought of the name.

And second, Charlie Kirk is one of the biggest grifters in “conservatism” if you can even call him a conservative. While I don’t think someone without a formal education is inferior in any ways, this dumb kid got lucky and had an investor early on and has somehow managed to make a living off of using cliche “conservative” jargon and dog whistles. All he does is promulgate MAGA cultists and talk about how triggered he is (while mocking “leftists” for being equally triggered).

He’s spent the last couple weeks bitching about how Chick-Fil-A “betrayed us.” His ideas are foolish and his insight is that of a six year old.

No wonder you like this nonsense Dog Man!!


Oh and just for good measure, lets not forget about Falwell's gay relationship with a pool-boy and how he was blackmailed into joining the tRUmpcult over it.

Yes we know you are an Atheist. But you probably believe what the schools are teaching, right?

I know you would like to believe that I follow these guys, and that's your right. But you seem to follow them much more than I do. You know far more about them than I do, that's for sure.

I just like the fact that they are calling out the schools for spreading propaganda.

I believe in things called facts.

What schools are spreading propaganda?


Your original post stated this:

Quote:

Which ones? You will need to clarify, because socialism in the modern sense didn't exist back then. Perhaps you should clarify what you think Socialism is first, I have a feeling that your definition isn't quite accurate.

Quote:
and the founding fathers did not believe in God.
The founding fathers were highly critical of RELIGION, not the belief in a God.
Thomas Paine was an atheist, as was Ethan Allen. And while you'll find that many of the others believed in a GOD, it wasn't exactly always the Christian God, at least not how you seem to see it.

For instance,

the largest group consisted of founders who retained Christian loyalties and practice but were influenced by Deism. They believed in little or none of the miracles and supernaturalism inherent in the Judeo-Christian tradition. Holmes finds a spectrum of such Deistic Christians among the founders,ranging from John Adams and George Washington on the conservative right to Benjamin Franklin and James Monroe on the skeptical left.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fa...unding_Fathers

An honest understanding of the founders would tell you that there was a reason they did not include the word "GOD" or Christianity in neither the Declaration or the Constitution.

Quote:

“The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.”

—President John Adams (Perhaps the most christian/religious of the founders)

this is an old rumor that colleges are teaching this or that
a college doesn't have an overall values aim; it lets individual teachers give lessons based on truth through their own value system, be that conservative, liberal or something else.
what some of the founders believed was it is better to have an affirmed atheist testify than make him place his hand on the bible and lie about being a Christian.
