Education? You don’t need no education.

“You can educate yourself right out of a relationship with God.” Tammy Faye Bakker
“Evolution is a bankrupt speculative philosophy, not a scientific fact. Only a spiritually bankrupt society could ever believe it. Only atheists could accept this Satanic theory.” Jimmy Swaggart
“Textbooks are Soviet propaganda.” Jerry Falwell
“Christians, like slaves and soldiers, ask no questions.” Jerry Falwell
So what you’re saying is that education is a pinko commie plot to trick American youth into learning radical ideas like physics, auto shop and that the world is round. Makes perfect sense, especially since most communist countries are on the verge of collapse and ruin, and have nothing better to do than expend resources falsifying American textbooks and forming roving bands of undercover comrades to place them in schools across the country.
"Destroy the computer. Its a homo's devil machine." Or, if you don’t buy the communist theory, then perhaps you will accept that scientific methods and technological progress is nothing more than a shrewd tool of the devil. Clearly penicillin, indoor plumbing and baseball caps all have a satanic influence.
Want to know who else opposed education, well except for an approved curriculum? Just off the top of my head; Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Mao Tse-Tung, Pol Pot, Idi Amin and the Taliban.
That education, it’s a dangerous thing.
