Home Schoolers Pushing for Baptist Vote on Public Schools
Home-schooling families in the Southern Baptist Convention are urging the denomination to vote on a resolution that calls on Baptists to shield their children from homosexual indoctrination in public schools.

According to an Associated Press report, Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) president Rev. Bobby Welch doubts that resolutions urging members to remove their children from public schools will be debated at the denomination's national meeting in Nashville this week. Proposed resolutions must first be approved by a committee, which will decide whether to present them to the whole convention. ...

Any solid doctrine at all is likely to disturb the peace at many So. Baptist churches.

My brother-in-law teaches at my wife's old SBC church in CA (nice folks there, BTW). I remember his sighing when discussing his attempts to teach anything more substantial than usual.

My concern was exclusively for the peace of the church and the liberty of conscience of those within it.
Therefore I was thinking "theologically" partisan.

33K, hopefully the debate is partisan along the lines of theology and not politics--though I am sure that at least a portion of the latter will intrude.

33 K, I would like to agree with you, on arm twisting of public schools. However, I would say even a good Darwinist would find homosexuality unnatural. Also do public schools officially (I'm not saying they may actually that may actually encourage) cheating and class distinctions etc.. This came out of a McGuffy reader of the 19th-century:

Erase all thought and fear of God from a community, and selfishness and sensuality would absorb the whole man. Appetite, knowing no restraint, and suffering, having no solace or hope, would trample in scorn on the restraints of human laws. Virtue, duty, principle, would be mocked as unmeaning sounds. A sordid self-interest would supplant every feeling; and man would become, in fact, what the theory of atheism declares him to be--a companion for brutes.

for the ten-year-olds of our
American frontier

Perhaps public school boards should pick more Christians. This won't happen in Lincoln of course. :-(

The fact that it is debated makes it partisan, does it not, regardless of whatever our own convictions may be on the matter?

With regards to the claim that this proposal is partisan, I don't know that that is true. Proverbs and other places in the Bible clearly mandate that fathers and mothers train up their children. Whether it is Biblically acceptable to delegate that holy responsibility to unbelievers is debateable.

In short, we have a clear Biblical debate, not political.

Indeed, homeschool parents can persuade others better by example: i.e., their childrens' [hopefully] mature and responsible behavior.

I see the SB Church and Home Education Association has a poll on it's home page "Does your church actively support home education".

Presumably, providing a supportive environment for all parents be they homeschoolers or otherwise is not considered enough? The church has to be "actively" doing something to support home education. Sounds like a recipe for completely needless conflict in the church.

Perhaps these people need to focus on the gospel rather than their pet cause.

That resolution concerning teaching of homosexuality is over-specific anyway. Legitimizing sodomy is only the most recent problem with public-school pedagogy.

Churches already teach a partisan view in one sense by promoting Sunday Schools, youth programs, etc., as normative, implicitly pressuring parents who choose to teach children the faith in the home & by including them in corporate worship & teaching (in other words, per the Westminster Directories). The paleo-Presbys are right here - scriptural warrant is req'd for all church practices.

I do agree that weekday schooling is a matter of parental liberty. I just have trouble rationalizing gov't schools for any parents who have the means to do better.

In any case, there's no danger of anyone minding what the SBC says.

Is this what the headline seems? Home-schoolers seeking to impose their views on parents who send their children to public/state schools.

Is this really what we need to do?Dispense with liberty of conscience in the churches, and seek to impose partisan views on others?

Whatever happened to trusting the Spirit of God do it's work, and allowing Christians to follow their consciences?

Of course Christian parents' should shield their children from homosexual (and other) indoctrination (wherever it is found). But, the last thing the Christian home-schooling community needs is to become little-dictators or to allow themselves to be represented as that.
