Rift Develops Between Evangelical Homeschoolers & Constitutional Individualists

- By Frederick Meekins

Homeschool guru Kevin Swanson has decided to cast aspersions on Alex Jones of Inforwars.com and PrisonPlanet.com.

Swanson commenced his attack on the 6/2/06 broadcast of his program Generations Radio because Jones posted a story daring to suggest that FEMA operatives were training pastors to manipulate their congregations into accepting world government and the related institutions of the New World Order.

Instead of considering the allegations, Swanson burst into a tirade about Jones not having enough about God on his website and condemned him as a "Randian" individualist possessing an incorrect worldview.

Just because God is not explicitly mentioned on a website in every story does not mean by definition that it is necessarily anti-God. Jones might simply have a purpose that transcends that of Swanson's more niche mission........................

I listened to Swanson's broadcast. I think he makes some valid points about the worldview of a lot of patriots that I've known, and I'm a patriot myself. A healthy dose of the fear of God helps eliminate a lot of problems with paranoia. On the other hand though, as the old adage goes, "Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean that they're not out to get me." Swanson shouldn't be so hasty to reject out of hand various conspiracies. The guy claims to have some historic understanding and yet he rejects government and powerbroker conspiracies which as any historian knows are evident throughout history.

Swanson seems to have some personal character problems that I find troubling, including the company he keeps. I did a blogger search and came up with a very interesting article entitled RC Sproul Jr divides homeschool groups. For being a Christian homeschool advocate who espouses a biblical worldview Swanson doesn't seem to have any reservations about compromising his principles.
