Stop what you are doing and watch this trailer for the upcoming movie Expelled. Whether you are a believer or not, this movie should rattle something in you that screams “WHAT!” In America, we have freedom to choose what and whom we believe…..
or do we?
And I will stand here, on the record, and tell you that this, among other things, is why I choose to homeschool my children.
Thanks go to Kate for putting this on her blog.
After you watch the trailer, please discuss your reactions in my comments. Will you go see this movie?
And more importantly, WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?
Edited to add: I think we are getting off topic in the comments. It isn’t about what is taught in schools, it is about what is not allowed to be taught. I agree that religion should be taught at home, and I believe that it is THAT important, yet I believe that I, as a parent and taxpayer, have the right to question why there are other “logical explanations” to how the earth and all its inhabitants came to be yet we are only teaching ONE. Why should a child be taught evolution and not given the option of creationism to decide for himself? Do we think that our children (or parents, for that matter) are so ignorant that they can not decide for themselves between the two? It isn’t about what is being taught in your schools, or how many “Christians” you have on your schools staff… its about the fact that the government thinks that it is okay to teach only one option and threaten those who dare to teach otherwise.
THAT is what this is about 🙂
