Oooh, Ouch: Are You An Asset Or A Liability To The Classical Christian Movement?

In a Target parking lot…

Gibbs: Excuse me, sir. I know you have shopping to do, but I was wondering if we could speak for a moment.

Driver: About what?

Gibbs: About your bumper sticker.

Driver: Which one?

Gibbs: The one that says in very large letters, “My children receive a classical Christian education.”

Driver: What about it?

Gibbs: I should tell you now that I followed you a little ways because I wanted to ask you about it.

Driver: Yes?

Gibbs: Well, why are you sending your child to a classical Christian school?

Driver: Because a classical Christian education is concerned with reality. Public schools revolve around feelings and fantasy.

Gibbs: “Feelings and fantasy.” Yes, what do you mean?

Driver: A classical Christian education aims to align the student’s feelings with reality. Public schools teach students that reality should align with our feelings. It’s delusional.

Gibbs: Couldn’t agree more. A classical Christian education is interested in the truth, regardless of how we feel about it.

Driver: I see you know something about classical Christian education.

Gibbs: I do, and I’m afraid I have some bad news for you.

Driver: We don’t even know one another.

Gibbs: Sir, you either need to learn to drive like a reasonable adult or you need to remove that bumper sticker from your car.
