Great - so the more experienced writers will be encouraged to leave.
I can't believe you didn't review Marigold's burger! Truly the best burger in town.
I'm amazed that you feel it's among the better Tex-Mex restaurants in the area. We live in Falcon, and have eaten at Poblano's a couple of times. The portions were skimpy, the food was bland and the service was awful. No need to go there now that we have La Mission - why don't you review that restaurant.
Everyone in Falcon I've talked to about it agrees: Poblano's is definitely NOT a welcome addition to the Falcon area!
The point is, there should'nt be a "Christian quality" to a public school. Unless you think it's ok to have public schools that have a "Muslim quality", a "Hindu quality" or a "Jewish quality"? Public schools should not have religious qualities. They should be secular.
And of course it's not ok for sexual assaults to happen in any school. Where in the article does it say that it's ok?
Thanks for including the rest of the quote from Mr. Mast. It further proves my point: "the ways of the world"? As opposed to what - the ways of the church, the ways of G-d? "The World" is often seen as as synonym for "evil" in a Christian worldview. And if you have a Christian worldview, that's fine. But don't impose it on children in a public school, which should be free from religious doctrine. And I've never heard the word "ministry" used in this sense by anyone but Christians.
And I don't care if the people you've referenced are Jewish. Jews aren't a monolithic group, we have many viewpoints and opinions. There are even Jews who have no religious views or who call themselves Christian. Just because there may be Jews in the administration of the school, that doesn't mean they will honor my wish that child not be exposed to Christian doctrine in the school.
And it's too bad, because I believe that a true classical education is an excellent background for any child or young person. But I don't want my child educated in a Christian school because we're not Christian. Why does that make me prejudiced or intolerant?
I'm concerned about the person on TCA board who says that serving on the board is a "ministry opportunity". TCA may be a charter school, but it is still a public school, and using it as a "ministry" is completely inappropriate.
It's too bad that some Christian parents see "classical" charter schools as a way for their children to be taught Christianity in the public school system. It certainly puts me off sending my (Jewish) child to a classical charter school.
I'm amazed that people still think they can drink "a couple beers" and still drive. Putting aside the fact that whenever anyone is pulled over for suspected DUI, they all say they only had "a couple beers", do you really think that you are able to make a correct judgment about your level of impairment when you are drinking?
I sure don't want an officer to smell alohol on my breath if I'm pulled over. Even if I'm actually not impaired, and I pass all the roadsides, who wants to deal with that? And what if the officer comes up with a toadside that I don't pass? A trip to the police station and a breathalyzer test? Stephen Darr is right. The best policy is not to drive after drinking alcohol, period.
Quit whining, take responsibilty for your actions, and call a friend (or a cab) for a ride home.
