Why I am content to be a non-funded home schooler.

Deborah Gyapong links to a disturbing National Post article concerning Quebec's ban on religious instruction in schools. I agree, this is the money quote:

“Religious communities and families hold sway over children through the household and through churches, mosques and synagogues,” he said. “I don’t see it as a problem for daycares and schools to be, in a way, a kind of counterweight to the hold that religious communities and families have over their children.”
Darn those families, "holding sway" over their own children! You can almost see the zombie that is the one-size-fits-all, everything is relative, tolerate-everything-but-Christianity, state education system drooling over a share of those innocent young brains.  Look out for that "counterweight" - it has a way of crashing down pretty hard when "religious communities and families" are cut out of the equation.
