If I recall, the first text books were scriptures.... because that is what they had to work with.... fortunately the inadequacy produced appropriate school textbooks as are now the basis for public education.

I would say for public degradation rather than education. But the values instilled by the early schools led to what we were prior to the non-believers gaining such ground.

Yep... the burning of poor unfortunate women who's sin was compassion to try to assist an afflicted the best she knew how... and if the poor unfortunate happened to die, she was decried an evil witch and burned at the stake for her failings in medicine and willingness to show compassion.

How much difference between king and cleric. Our forebears wisely decided that neither were fit to govern.

Those were the days before non-believers had 'gained such ground'.
Do you think that was a picture of a bunch of non-beievers at a '30s lynching?
I'd be willing to bet all would identify themselves as Christian.

Or maybe we ARE better off now with school books.

And all probably would identify as being from Mississippi, too!

There is little doubt for me that the rise in non belief has a lot to do with the hypocrisy of believers who struggle to find moral fiber.
