Rift Develops Between Evangelical Homeschoolers & Constitutional Individualists

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.

Swanson's minion Dave Buehner mocked Jones by saying that information about God might be on the Prison Planet website but that conspiracy operatives might be suppressing it and that he was putting his tin foil hat back on.

Swanson then summed up the worldview of those concerned with conspiracy theories as not believing in the sovereignty of God. Frankly, as a minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, it is Swanson's peachy keen Post- or Amillenialism that incorrectly fails to assess the currents of history sweeping over us.

God is always sovereign, but that does not mean He always steps in to prevent Hell on earth. If Swanson's precious homeschooling is outlawed, does that mean he would just blithely accept it as "God's will" and if he and his children are sent to a prison camp, is he not going to resist since he condemned the characters in last summer's cinematic masterpiece "The Island" for having done so?

Sure, some of the material on Jonesí website might provide an alternative perspective on current events. But unlike Swanson, Jones is not the one hypothesizing that young women should be discouraged from attending college or that Little House On The Prairie somehow suborns lesbianism.

Makes you wonder who really is wearing the tinfoil hat after all.
