Dictionary.com scorches homeschoolers

Dictionary.com, the popular destination for writers seeking definitions and synonyms, contains some scathing commentary on homeschooling.

“If you want to keep your kids from reality and turn them into mindless automaton copies of yourself,” the site declares, “homeschool them.”

The pointed statement is just one of three potentially offensive sentences that could be found on the site as late as Tuesday morning as examples for how to use “homeschool” in a sentence.

“If you wish to teach your children such nonsense,” another of the sentences declares, “then homeschool where lame propaganda can remain unchallenged.” ...

And I agree with your comment. Even if a parochial school education was better acedemically it's a huge inoculation against true Christianity.
John Y., you really have to read danfromtn2, original message, I would also say you should read, http://www.ianpaisley.org/article.asp?printerFriendly=true&ArtKey=lloydjones (Roman Catholicism -- Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones)and pastor Lloyd-Jones are also on sync about the effect of Romanism.

I. Curzon, I'm glad you brought it up, because I couldn't find those comments on dictionary.com, earlier this morning. Now they had those comments about parochial schools they certainly would have been fitting.

Emmett McLoughlin wrote:
[Nevertheless] It is my contention and my sincere conviction, from my experience in the Catholic educational system, my life of fifteen years in the priesthood, and thirteen years of constant observation and intense study since leaving the Church, that its influence on all civilization has been far more of evil than of good....

Morally, this book will show the high rate of crime and sin among Roman Catholics everywhere, and particularly in the United States. It will also demonstrate that this immorality is not in spite of Catholic education and training, but directly because of it

excerpt of a quotation in Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No.

"Thank you for bringing this to our attention,” Dictionary.com replied in an email to WND. “We value the homeschooling community and education in all forms. These example sentences have been removed because they do not meet our editorial standards."

Seems like Dictionary.com is not the original source of these offensive comments, so should not be penalised for them.

We do not believe it is possible to train up our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord in the public system nor the private Christian schools. Homeschooling has become the only option.

You really do have psychological problems if you actually believe that Catholic Parochial Schools produce under educated individuals. Catholic Schools have children who get higher grades then their public school counterparts.
