I used to mock and dismiss Christian homeschooling texts like this. Now that I have children, they disgust and infuriate me.

Christian homeschooling is rapidly growing: millions of US children are already homeschooled. Since only a certain (probably small) percentage of these kids will ever escape the indoctrination, homeschooling is a clear danger for the future of US competitiveness -- not to mention being just plain wrong. California recently made some tentative progress in regulating these people: (http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,1720697,00.html?imw=Y), but there are 49 other states.

It's often said that organizing atheists is like herding cats, but this seems like an issue that most of us can agree upon -- and get politically active about.

Who's with me?
