Quote Of The Week
Paul The Regular Guy speaks!

In a ComBox discussion Paul is having over at his blog, Thoughts of a Regular Guy, concerning the rabidly anti-Catholic books of Philip Pullman being made available to Catholic schoolchildren in Catholic schools, Paul has an interesting thought concerning Pullman's publications;

But to recommend it [Pullman's book] as being "in the vein of Harry Potter" is like saying, "go ahead kids, wander in that minefield!"

I'll make those judgments for my kids, thanks.
Well said, Paul. Well said. But the problem that many "progressives" have with your outlook, is that they have no problem whatsoever if their kids do wander through the minefield. For some obscene reason, they consider that "healthy".

But for some equally obscene reason, they're also the first ones to scream blood murder when their kid gets blown up. Literally or figuratively.

I wouldn't pay ten cents for a used copy of the HP books especiall now that Dumbledore has been outed but the Pullman books are really and openly dangerous. If a Catholic school has this stuff available then the parents might as well pull their kids out now and go to public school.

Yet another reason I don't support "Catholic" schools. This sort of stuff is more common than good faith formation.

A few months ago, John Edwards noted that he didn't want to force his own morals on his young children. Surprisingly, I am coming across this strange thinking more and more on internet forums. There seems to be the rather bizarre mindset that one shouldn't 'impose' one's religious beliefs and values on one's children. Perhaps that is what is going on with the Pullman novels. Christian parents and schools, which should be shoring up their children's faith until the time when they are older, believe that they should expose thier kids to all sorts of nonChristian ideas in a effort to make them open minded. This sort of thiking makes me very angry. Some people seem to value 'being open minded' much more then they do their own faith.
