Home-school article biased
I’m writing in regard to “Home-school texts offer religious slant,” (article, March 8).
I was intrigued to see an article regarding religion in Stars and Stripes. But as I read the article, I was very disappointed at the biased point of view the article took.
The overall point of the article, to my understanding, was that there are Christian-based, home-schooled books and that those books taught subjects based on Christian beliefs. I fail to see the newsworthiness of this observation.
Also, I don’t understand why only non-Christians were interviewed for this article. Anyone who was asked about a religion that they do not believe in would have negative things to say about what it teaches because he disagrees. Interviewing a Christian, for example, on the teachings of Muslim children would have no basis because of their conflicting beliefs. It just wouldn’t make sense.
It is sad to see an article fall onto the bandwagon of Christian-bashing, especially a military newspaper that has readers who are Christians and attend churches on military bases all over the world.
