Sure, many of them indoctrinate kids by treating science as a hoax and preaching abstinence-only sex education… but how bad could it really get? Well, we now know some of those schools are promoting pro-Trump talking points in history books.

The fact that the Christians who work at those schools and the parents who pay for their kids to go there see nothing wrong with all this ought to be a giant stain on the entire religion.

The question should be what moderate or progressive Christians are doing to fight back against the extremists in their midst. Doing nothing isn’t an option.
