The Florida Fundies

As I wrote over in comments at the Culture Ghost: “If you could bottle and sell stupid, the local economy would soar.”

The Pensacola Beach Blogger has been doing yeoman’s work patiently explaining the situation which has resulted in a Federal judge charging two Pace high school officials with criminal contempt.

Naturally, the facts are meaningless to people who consider themselves to be victims of vicious secular discrimination, and having their freedom to force their religious views down everyone’s throats violated. Make no mistake that only their religious views count. If you are a Catholic, your choices are to send your children to school in Pensacola or Fort Walton Beach, or have them put up with evangelical agitprop. This isn’t about just non-Christians complaining, it is about the freedom of/from religion for everyone who isn’t an evangelical.

And this “Christian” approach really works to instill morally, as in “Jay teachers accused of sex with students”. All of the trademarks of the earlier Janelle Bird soap opera. That abstinence sex education is really taking hold 😈

If you aren’t an evangelical, the reception in Santa Rosa county is a bit different: Santa Rosa says no to Coptic church retreat. There’s no room for one of the oldest branches of Christianity in Santa Rosa county.

This is what the selfishness of the “Reagan Revolution” has spawned. Only the “elect” have freedoms and rights.

And in small town like where my Father grew up, the unemployment rate has been over ten percent for a decade, starting shortly after the mills closed. At this point, you can either send your kids to horrible public schools or you can pay the money to send them to Christian schools founded and run by Evangelicals. That’s the only choice you have.

The public schools in Santa Rosa county are actually pretty good, if they would stick to the curriculum and stop proselytizing. The Christian schools are too expensive for most people.
