I have been commenting for many years now that public education is an anti-Christian indoctrination factory. The kids are now dumber than their predecessors over a century ago. Since the education system has become decidedly anti-Christian, the ability to have a free society and independent thought has taken a nose dive. This article clearly documents the impact of Christianity on society. I would take issue with the author on one point, that the Protestant reformation was the catalyst for the spread of an educated Christian public. It must be remembered that when the Catholic church takes over a society, the dark age begins to reemerge because the Catholic church is NOT a Christian organization. It is a global mystery religion that likes to tell people that they are the defender of Christianity.
