‘Battle Between Normal And The Crazy’: State Official Fiercely Condemns School Board For Terminating Contract With Christian University | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Hank Berrien.

    The Arizona superintendent of public instruction slammed an Arizona school board after it ended a contract with a Christian university after some board members claimed the university's religious beliefs were concerning.

    On February 23, after board members attacked the university, Washington Elementary School District terminated its contract with Arizona Christian University, which permitted the district's student teachers to gain field experience.

    "My concern is when I go to Arizona Christian University's website, [they are] 'committed to Jesus Christ, accomplishing his will and advancements on earth as in Heaven,'" board member Tamillia Valenzuela said. "At some point, we need to get real with ourselves and take a look at who we're making legal contracts with and the message that is sending to our community. Because that makes me feel like I could not be safe in this school district."

    According to her bio, Valenzuela is "a bilingual, disabled, neurodivergent Queer Black Latina ... who loves a good hot wing (but only with the right ranch) and things that sparkle."

    She also suggested that the university's Christian view of sexuality was a problem.

    "I want to know how bringing [teachers] from an institution that is ingrained in their values so directly brings impact to three of your board members who are a part of the LGBT community," Valenzuela continued.

    School board member Kyle Clayton joined in, charging, "Proselytizing is embedded into how they teach. And I just don't believe that that belongs in schools."

    Arizona State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne, who served as Attorney General of Arizona from 2011 to 2015, fired back hard, telling Fox News that the school board's decision was wrong.

    "There's nothing more outrageous than religious prejudice. Prejudice of all kinds has been responsible, in my opinion, for almost all of the evil in the history of humankind. And the person who raised this on the school board describes herself as a 'neuro-divergent queer.' And when she says that she expects you to be tolerant of her" he said.

    "I'm Jewish, and there's an old Jewish expression: 'He who expects respect, has to give respect,'" Horne added. "And this is an absolutely outrageous violation of people's religious rights."

    "The best teachers' preparation program in Arizona is a Christian college; it's called Grand Canyon," he noted. "I served 24 years on the school board, and we always want to get as many teachers from there as we could get because they were the best at preparing teachers for the classroom."

    "There's some bad things that have developed in our society, primarily Critical Race Theory," he continued. "I made that my number one issue in the political campaign. Everybody who voted for me knows I was against Critical Race Theory because my volunteers and I put up 1,500 signs all around the state that had my name on it and it said 'Stop Critical Race Theory.'"

    "So we who want the normal, as the governor of [Arkansas] said; there's a battle between the normal and the crazy," Horne declared. "Those of us who want the normal, we've got to organize; we've got to fight back, we've got to elect people to statewide office and local office and school board office and we've got to fight back and we've got to bring the country back to normal."

    He also said that teachers should follow state guidelines and not push their own ideology on the students.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

In the most recent Midterms Election, the "Republican Red Wave" turned out to be a "Republican Red Ripple," which, as in all elections, confounded the political prognosticators of what to expect down the governing /political road: What, and who, do you think is best for this meandering Representative Republic in the near future?
  Because they know how to best allocate the public's money back to the right part of the public, the Democrats will NOW always prevail and get my vote.
  With patriotic pragmatism the cornerstone of the best of the Republican Party, they will ultimately save this Constitutional Republic from self-destruction.
  Since the Executive Branch is so important to turn this Representative Republic around, I am still on Team Trump in 2024.
  Since the nation may need a different path to Conservative patriotism in the Executive, I am joining Team DeSantis.
  Because I am entitled to take the government dole, the prevailing favoritism whenever possible, I will support any, and every Democrat candidate.
