Quote:WIS. 8TH GRADE CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEFINITIONS: CONSERVATISM = ‘RESTRICTING PERSONAL FREEDOMS,’ LIBERALISM = ‘PERSONAL FREEDOM FOR EVERYONE’

A mother at a Wisconsin public school said her daughter’s eighth grade class was assigned a worksheet with some eyebrow-raising definitions for “conservatism” and “liberalism.”

Conservatism, it stated in part, believes in “preserving traditional moral values by restricting personal freedoms” while liberalism is for “equality and personal freedom for everyone.”

I know I'll catch flak for this, but nature abhors a vacuum, so when they took God out of schools government stepped in to replace His seat.

They took God out of the classroom SO they could take over for God and the parents.

Logic fail. Praying was never universal in schools in the first place. I never ever saw anything like it maybe I was too old at 1977 for the first time I went to school. Regardless, god being in or out of schools isn't going to keep an idiot from doing something like this at all.

Wrong answer Amigo. It was the norm in classrooms into the early 70s. Then Madelyn Murray O'Hare sued to keep prayer out of the classroom. I was in school in those days and remember it quite well. As for whether or not it would keep an idiot from doing something, it was meant to remind you of your moral obligations at the start of the day, it definitely affected some people I knew, others blew it off but they were agnostic to begin with.

I prefer neither. Tongue

I wish the crossword puzzle included 'libertarianism' in there instead of just talking about either the left or the right.

edit: Bill, I modified your post so it linked to the correct post from exceltoexcel. I deleted his duplicate post.

UPDATE!

Amazing how many things get "corrected" after TheBlaze puts them on a national stage!

Quote:‘CLEARLY SKEWED’: EDUCATION COMPANY PULLS CROSSWORD THAT SAID CONSERVATISM IS FOR ‘RESTRICTING PERSONAL FREEDOMS’

The education company that distributed a crossword puzzle worksheet that said conservatism was for “restricting personal freedoms” while liberalism was for “equality and personal freedom for everyone” said it is discontinuing the “clearly skewed” product.

Cerebellum Corporation — the distributor of Sunburst Visual Media, which created the crossword and related materials — said in a statement to TheBlaze Friday that it did not have any part in the “production, writing or overall creation of the materials” but apologized for the “unacceptable” content.

We have the now, the teachers let the children know its their moral obligation to do lots of things.. Rolleyes Like I said I started in 1977 so it wasn't the wrong answer and it never could or would stop teachers from doing anything like this anyway. Keep your god out of my government and your government out of my god.

You obviously come from the "have my cake and eat it too" school of moral relativism. If you had gone to school a decade earlier, you might be able to follow the concepts.
