Ray Moore is a candidate in the South Carolina Republican primary for lieutenant governor. He is also a courageous Christian patriot whom I first interviewed in 2002 when he published a book (and accompanying documentary video) called Let My Children Go. Moore is an advocate of Christian education and a supporter of the homeschooling movement who believes — as do I — that the public school system is hopelessly broken and incapable of reform. So here is the headline on Rebecca Klein’s story at Huffington Post:
That this is a ginned-up liberal hit piece, you can tell by the tendentious use of scare-quotes around the word “godless.”
Is this even a matter of dispute in 2014? Does anyone deny that, as the result of both judicial rulings and institutional policy, the expression of religious belief is prohibited in American public schools? Furthermore, anyone familiar with the curriculum and pedagogy of public schools can tell you that what students are now being taught is an aggressively secular, anti-biblical worldview.
Well, as Joseph said to his brothers in Egypt, what the Huffington Post meant for evil, God meant for good. This attempt to portray Ray Moore as a dangerous extremist is the kind of free publicity that may catapult his candidacy to victory. We’re talking about a South Carolina Republican primary, after all. Being nationally known as the Christian conservative who stands firmly in opposition to godless public schools is probably worth thousands of dollars in contributions and enough extra votes to ensure a spot in the runoff.
Who needs any further argument?
Never miss a chance to defy the godless media.
