Wednesday's News-Leader includes a letter from Fluharty, who seems stuck in the '50s (perhaps the 550s). In three short grafs he outlines a world view that is troubled, indeed:
Springfield, I implore you that it does not take a village to raise a child. Our public schools have already been transformed into government indoctrination centers, and now they want to get them even earlier. They hide all this in the guise of the public good.
What is good about the government raising your kids? If it is anything like the public schools they will probably tell them that there is no God but government, and only it can supply all your needs. You were not created but evolved from primordial sludge. Homosexuality is normal and should be tolerated by all. The world owes you a living so wait for them to provide it. This is supposed to keep kids out of trouble?
I normally disagree with Gov. Matt Blunt but he said it all at the Baptist Convention last week when he said Jesus Christ is our only hope. So I urge you to vote no to big government and encourage the city to drop the childhood development center and give it all to law enforcement next time around.
