My point is that you don't need to be combative about it. Your statement that I bolded is completely wrong. His opinions are as welcome as yours, which you have shared in abundance in the past - as have we all.
I'm glad you're calm. AVBB doesn't need statistical proof - all anyone need do is look around at the current product of public schools. Not ALL of them, but many. And there are many Christian women who are feminist without intention because of what they were taught. *shrugs* I've been in a lot of churches, met a lot of Christian women who attended public school, and it is a truth. It is a given that what people are taught in school will follow them throughout life. Oftentimes even after they are saved.
Nothing was broad-brushed. Broadbrushing would be be to say that every single Christian woman who went to public school is a feminist. That wasn't what was said. So let's move on...
I am not being combative. I am sorry that my post to AVBB came across that way. I am just being blunt.
Funny thing is that many born again Christians who attend public school and are grounded in there local IFB church are not feminist, nor do they lack understanding of God's word. Their parents teach them at home. Remember, not all Christians can afford Christian school and not all can home school their children. These children I am speaking of, become adults and go on for higher learning in the local Independent Baptist Church. Their days in public school has not affected them at all.
As with my family, we did not know any Baptists and weren't privy to anything but public or parochial school. My parents chose public school as they were forced to attend parochial school by their parents. I only attended parochial school b/c of the rash of kidnappings in my neighborhood, and the public school extended the lunch hour. My mom was working outside of the home, and both of my parents thought it was much safer to attend parochial school, as they had a school lunch program. Praise God those years taught me nothing, except the Trinity (godhead). Some of the strongest Christians I know attended public schools. I meet them all the time. Many IFB pastors have attested to this as well.
It would be nice if IFB's wouldn't slight Christians who have attended public school. That is all..
