Besides being homicidal, white, and racist, what else did these three terrorists have in common? They were all raised by conservative Christians and home-schooled.
Does Homeschooling Make Children More Religious?
An estimated two million children are being homeschooled in the United States. Scholars studying homeschooling often talk about the academic achievement of homeschoolers or their social skills.But, as important as those things are, they are not the main concern of many families who choose homeschooling. According to the surveys…
The Waffle House shooter’s mother made the claim on Facebook that the decline of prayer in school was a direct correlation to the rise of school shootings which is why she was in such favor of home-schooling. Bit ironic, really.
The lack of prayer is hardly the problem when these “good Christian boys” are doing the killing, but it is possible the isolation from people that are different led to the racism. Pair that with an unstable nature and a youth group that teaches gun skills…well, it’s bound to have consequences.
