Another reason why government should NOT be in the business of education

"The millions of images we have been exposed to through television, movies, magzines, newspaper, and other media have not sharpened but dulled our creative imagination. More than ever, we need to develop and sanctify our imagination, because the truth of Scripture and spiritual experience is, to use Jean Leclercq’s words, 'impregnated with a mysterious light impossible to analyze.' A sanctified imagination will enable us to grasp more than we can see, but we need the lifeline of Scripture to tether us to the truth."

-Kenneth Boa on meditation, The Psalms, a Journal

If YOU don't want the government defining truth for you, then the government should get out of the business of education.
