Taxpayer funding for religious schools that teach only religion.

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2018/04/05/ultra-orthodox-jewish-schools-in-nyc-keep-failing-and-things-just-got-worse/

This is stunning.  These schools receive … “hundreds of millions of dollars in government funding, in part through federal programs like Title 1 and Head Start.”   They leave kids unable to read, do math, speak english, basicly unable to function in anything but their ultra religious societies.  It is horrible.

A yeshiva graduate, Moster got serious about raising educational quality for Jewish kids when he went to a secular college and realized to his embarrassment that he was unfamiliar with all sorts of concepts that other students had no problem with. For instance, he’d never heard the word “molecule,” nor did he possess any concept of the word’s meaning. For a long time, he considered himself “too crippled to make it through.”

 

At the 39 [worst] yeshivas [in New York City], children ages 7 to 13 receive only an hour and a half of English and math instruction combined four days per week. Other secular subjects are not taught at all, and English instruction for boys stops at age 13, the letter states. (Most Hasidic Jews speak Yiddish at home, and nearly a third of students in Jewish schools in New York City speak limited English, according to the Department of Education.)

 

He describes how a physician he knows in Borough Park in Brooklyn, a heavily Hasidic neighborhood,

… often sees adult male patients who can barely communicate to her what ails them. “It’s not just that they’re like immigrants, barely able to speak the language,” she told me. “It’s also a lack of knowledge of basic physiology. They can barely name their own body parts.”

 

 

Top 10 Crazy People Who Claimed to Be God

As you watch these think on this, how are these any different than Scientology, Mormon groups, Jehovah witnesses, and all other religious claims made without evidence?    Also ponder what you would say if your neighbor told you god talked to them?  Then they tell you God told them to build an alter?   Next they tell you God told them to kill one of their children on it.   If you are a member of one of the abrahamic religions you must think it is a great thing your neighbor is about to do, as that is what was asked of the founder of those faiths.    If like me you are an atheist and feel strongly that killing kids is not an act of commitment to a unseen unproven never there sky god,  You immediately do whatever it takes to protect the children from the madman neighbor you have.    Think on it.  Hugs

Great post with lots of information for those interested in the idea tRump has of troops on the Mexican / US border. Thanks. Hugs

Trumptimestamp

Trump has a Fox News induced, mental breakdown about a caravan of illegals coming to rape everyone in America and shoot us all up with either guns or syringes full of dope.  Trump declares, “Until we can have a wall and proper security, we’re going to be guarding our border with the military.”

He won’t be sending the military.  He won’t even be sending the National Guard unless he wants to either declare war on Mexico or declare a state of emergency.  Any other such executive order will be meaningless unless it’s funded and that takes work from the legislative branch.  No, the DOD doesn’t have a slush fund or petty cash drawer to open to pay for the billions this operation would take.  They can’t steal it from other earmarks.

It cost Obama 110 million just to send 1200 troops for one year (not overall package cost which was…
