New York Times: Public Money Finds Back Door to Private Schools
HT: G Mankiw
Nearly a quarter of the participating schools in Georgia require families to make a profession of religious faith, according to their Web sites. Many of those schools adhere to a fundamentalist brand of Christianity. A commonly used sixth-grade science text retells the creation story contained in Genesis, omitting any other explanation. An economics book used in some high schools holds that the Antichrist — a world ruler predicted in the New Testament — will one day control what is bought and sold.
Everyone knows the antichrist will not control what is bought and sold. That will be Skynet.
On another note, while flipping through the channels on the radio yesterday, I came across an ad for "affordable biblical heatlhcare." I wasn't aware they had healthcare plans in Ancient Israel or the Roman Empire. ;-)
