Quote of the day

"We are shut up in schools and college recitation rooms for ten or fifteen years, and come out at last with a bellyful of words and do not know a thing. "

Birds of a feather...

Thursday, 10 April 2008

Please continue to pray for me as we deal with the Day of Silence scheduled for April 25 and for CoDE (Coalition to Defend Education) which is the parent group that is working on making sure the right policies are followed concerning the Day of Silence.

Pastor Hutch

What is this unholy alliance CoDE has made?

If their motives where ever in doubt before, they are clear now.

Oh, but they clear all that up in the FAQ section of their website:

"What is CoDE's association with the Reverend Ken Hutcherson and his church?

The Coalition to Defend Education is a nonreligious, nonprofit organization and is not affiliated with Rev. Hutcherson's church. The Rev. Hutcherson is not a leader of CoDE; he is a parent with children in the Snoqualmie Valley School District who shares our concern about indoctrination in our schools."

You see they are just a neutral organization that accepts a virulent anti-gay bigot and leader of an anti-gay hate group with open arms.

I found the very next entry in their FAQ especially telling:
"Was CoDE for or against the recent school bond measure?

The Coalition to Defend Education did not have an official position for or against the recent school bond. We recognized that parents and community members had a wide range of personal opinions on this important issue. We openly encouraged all citizens to study the proposal, make their decision, and vote."

Don't you think that calling a group, whose sole positions to date are objectively anti-gay and generally anti-progressive, and who fail to support the funding of schools the "Coalition to Defend Education" is a misnomer? Lucky for them the laws on false advertising don't apply to political groups.

Oh come on, people. Aren't you now being a little intolerant yourself?

And even if someone voted against the bond issue doesn't mean they are against school funding. They just didn't want higher taxes at this time.
