Our opposition to private school voucher schemes apparently angers “Linda,” who wrote us earlier today. We won’t publish her full name or email address — we’re polite that way. But here’s her email to us:
You either have no kids in the Texas public school system or you are just stupid or a lib which is one in the same.
public schools are an evil force run by and dictated to by an evil government.
We want better for our kids than to be brainwashed by liberal nonsense that have no moral values and no character building teaching.
Public schools teach that it is good to be a queer when it is written in our Holy Bible very clearly that it is a sin. you libs are advocating anything that is unethical, unlawful and just plain lies.
I will do what ever I can do to get all Texas kids that want out of the horrid public school to have school vouchers and a school of their choice. one that teaches not only the basic education that should be taught but also builds character, honor and ethics.
We’re often fascinated by self-righteous critics who, while employing offensive slurs and personal attacks, lecture us about morality. In any case, we’re often asked what motivates voucher supporters. Linda offers one answer, at least for some: they simply hate public schools.
