    Default state history from a christian perspective??

    state history from a christian perspective??
    y'all know I'm in NO way a Christian-basher, and I really do dislike bashing for the sake of bashing, but I'm going to break my own rule and say...WHAT in the world??? I'm going to be wondering all day what exactly a Christian perspective of my home state would even look like.....

    By the way, I assume that what it looks like is providential. In other words, God had his hand in everything done by white people and made the state so that white Christians could settle there in the first place. God wanted white people to commit genocide on the Native Americans, don't you know? It's not even the white people's fault. I mean, God wanted it. I think it's probably basically like that. Only marginally more subtle. Marginally.

    I thought you were LOOKING for a Christian perspective when I saw the post title! I've been disappointed that most of the state history curricula I've seen have been Christian; there seems to be little that is secular.

    Well, I live in Indiana - Pence is our governor - so the past few years will be easy to write from a Christian perspective since our state is governed from a Christian perspective.

    dbsam, but at least he won't be your governor for a while! Didn't he have to pull out of the governors run to be the VP mate to the idiot?

    Yes, he did have to pull out of the governor's race.

    I really, really dislike Pence, but I wanted him to run. Even though my state is mostly Republican, there are so many Republicans who dislike Pence I thought he would loose and we would have a Democrat for governor. But maybe that was not a good way to think since there was a risk that we would have Pence again - and more legislation based upon his 'Christian values'.

    Some of his legislation and beliefs are so horrible, extreme and crazy (against gay people, women's rights, child services, denial of climate change and evolution, issues w/transgender people in the bathrooms, etc. - too many things to list.) I sometimes feel like I live in the twilight zone state.

    Having him as governor has allowed for very interesting conversations with my children. (They see/hear my frustration and also help me write the emails and sign petitions - neither of which probably does any good but it makes me feel better!)

    Sorry for the OT rant!

    dbsam, we lived in Indy for 4 years. I'm a southern girl from a highly religious background and i kept telling my husband "we're not in the south anymore...right?" Indiana felt strangely...not mid-western. more heart of the deep south (and not in a good way). All of the hatred, none of the hospitality.

    I live as far north as possible without being in the lake and we are near Chicago, so I think it is a bit better up here. But as a state we we have a long way to go and unfortunately we seem to be going in the wrong direction.
