Have you checked on your child's spiritual safety?
Ahhh... the more I look into the goings on at this particular Catholic school, the more interesting information I find. It turns out that their library offers something called the Accelerated Reader Program, which is used in many schools throughout the country. The goal is to assist children to read on there own level. For example: Mark and Mary are in the third grade. Mark reads at a 4th grade level, where as Mary only reads on a 2nd grade level. They are assigned to read books according to the level the individual tests. After completing the book, the student takes a quiz on the computer.
Commendable, ain't it? One would think.
Well, I went to their search index, and typed in the name of one Philip Pullman. Remember him? 10 of his books are listed by this particular Catholic school as available to Catholic schoolchildren. And to be perfectly honest, I don't really care how much some may claim that these certain 10 books are not part of the His Dark Materials trilogy, and therefore innocuous. Philip Pullman is a purveyor of evil and hatred... period.
He's the same individual who's proudly proclaimed "My books are about killing God" and "I'm an atheist. There's no God here. There never was". Amazing how he contradicts himself about killing God, then states that there is no God. How can he kill what he also denies the existence of? Typical of the arguments used by atheists.
But I digress, what I find to be particularly amazing is that his books are readily available at a Catholic school. Is it really asking so much that the publications of one who literally has his hatred for God and His Church dripping from his jowls, camouflaged as his hatred may be, kept away from impressionable young Catholic schoolchildren?
Is it really asking that much?
