I should have known better. People don't necessarily mind Christians... homeschoolers only scare a select few, but to homeschool your child as a Christian, well that's just crazy. Here is the response I got, and there are sure to be plenty more:
The problem is that many, if not most, Christian homeschoolers do so in order to
indoctrinate their children, to brainwash them with their distorted world view.
This often includes devaluing scientific fact, such as evolution, in favor of
the Creationist fairytale. The children often become socially awkward at best,
mentally ill at worst. While there is nothing wrong with homeschooling your
children, in many cases it actually borders on child abuse. Children are not
born Christian, they're born to Christian parents, and they should not be
indoctrinated with myth and superstition.
I mean how do you answer amateur namecalling like "Creationist fairytales", "mentally ill", and "child abusers". There was nothing intelligent about his tyrannical rant. This person has got to be about as crazy as he thinks we are. How dare I teach my children my beliefs!.. For some reason it seems that any other religion can freely teach thier kids and are respected, but lately it seem that Christians are under fire.
I guess it is a good think that my kids don't have to deal with this attitude in school.
