    I am not talking up communism, just correcting your clearly illogical understanding of it.

    This thread brought the lulz.

    Premise 1: There is a correlation between education and liberalism
    P2: The people qualified to be educators are more likely to be liberals
    C: There is a massive conspiracy to brainwash younger generations into becoming liberals because they hate America and want to destroy it.

    On the bright side, maybe this is an opportunity for some people to find self awareness.

    Evangelicals readily admit that Trump is immoral, and the smarter ones even doubt whether he is a Christian at all. But that doesn't deter them because they believe he is an "agent of the Lord":

    To many within and beyond the faith community, these preachers’ claims raise eyebrows. How do Christian ministers reconcile the Jesus who said “Love your enemy” with a President whose policy is to strike back at all critics? Why would people who claim to stand for family values so uncritically support a thrice-married man who according to Ronan Farrow’s reporting for the New Yorker set up complex legal arrangements to cover up multiple affairs throughout his current marriage?

    Eighty percent of white evangelicals voted for and, by and large, continue to support President Trump. To almost everyone else in America, this seems like a fundamental contradiction. But to Trump’s faithful, it is Providence at work in human history. They believe God is making America great again through an imperfect human agent. And like any true believers, they will not be moved.​

    If you need to be taught how to use TurboTax or how to pick up the phone, call your doctor's office, and make an appointment, you're probably not bright enough to understand cellular biology or the Pythagorean theorem to begin with.

    Evangelicals are just a bunch of hypocrites. They are fake Christians, always have been.

    It's because a lot of people haven't left the US and experienced what it's like in other, less fortunate countries. Most people in this country are miserable for no good reason.

    But these parents who want Religion in school, want the Christian religion in school. They wouldn't care about teaching Native American religions.

    And religion is not needed for instilling morality, infact quite often Religion (depends on the Religion and which aspects are emphasized) pushes immoral beliefs.

    You shouldn't go to college to learn about things like history, the mind or the world around you. You should be going to trade schools and getting jobs more easily performed by robots in the very near future.
