Public education: the Religious Right agenda


Jerry Falwell:

“One day, I hope in the next 10 years, I trust that we will have more Christian day schools than there are public schools. I hope I will live to see the day when, as in the early days of our country, we won’t have any public schools. The churches will have taken them over again and Christians will be running them. What a happy day that will be!” – America Can Be Saved! (Sword of the Lord Publishers, Murfreesboro, Tenn.) 1979, p. 52-53

“[T]he only hope for the inner city is vouchers, so that all the churches can go in and plant Christian schools in the inner cities and capture these fatherless young people for Christ and teach them biblical discipline and so forth. It’s either God or it’s ruin for our country, I do believe.” – “The 700 Club,” Sept. 3, 1996, (reported in Church & State, October 1996, p. 19)
