The above is a rather flattering portrait of homeschooling. Unfortunately, there are some homeschoolers that have a strident political/social agenda of their own which creates a poor education also â

Take Vyckie Garrison, an ex-Quiverfull mother of seven who, in 2008, enrolled her six school-age children in public school after 18 years of teaching them at home. Garrison, who started the No Longer Quivering blog, says her near-constant pregnancies â which tended to result either in miscarriages or life-threatening deliveries â took a toll on her body and depleted her energy. She wasnât able to devote enough time and energy to homeschooling to ensure a quality education for each child. And she says the lack of regulation in Nebraska, where the family lived, âallowed us to get away with some really shoddy homeschooling for a lot of years.â....

Ted Cruz? Certainly not a person I would recommend, whoever put up that one--which wasn't me! People born in America not Canada was what I was thinking of. There are plenty of passable ones! Like Jeff Flake, being a Mormon makes him as Christian as Cruz!

But in presidential communication, authenticity is more than the id and tongue unleashed. Abraham Lincoln and other great presidents were authentic communicators because they treated serious things seriously, crafting policy and speeches that often challenged immediate emotional responses, expanded empathy and employed the cadences and spare language of memorable rhetoric. In the world of adults, authenticity involves thought and craft....

Mark 10 6Â But from the beginning of creation, âGod made them male and female.â 7Â âTherefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, 8Â and they shall become one flesh.â So they are no longer two but one flesh. 9Â What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.â
10Â And in the house the disciples asked him again about this matter. 11Â And he said to them, âWhoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her, 12Â and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.â ---ESV

Emma Green wrote: .... The Trump administrationâs commitment to supporting Christians in the Middle East has corresponded with a sharp drop in the number of Christian refugees admitted to the U.S. Under Obama, advocates howled that Democrats were refusing to take in persecuted Christians, but the number of Christians admitted from Iraq has dropped by 98 percent over the past two years. According to data from the U.S. State Department and the charity World Relief, only 23 Iraqi Christians were admitted to the United States in 2018, compared with nearly 2,000 in 2016. Families still in Iraq now look to Europe and Australia instead.
Trump-administration officials argue that a smaller Christian population in the Nineveh Plain will result in long-term damage to the region. In certain respects, they are right. Fewer Christians means less representation in the Iraqi government and less of a chance that Baghdad will heed Christian concerns. A smaller Christian community might also embolden the enemies of diversity. Countries with more religious freedom tend to have lower levels of xenophobia and faith-based violence....
