This is too much. If you thought Daddy D and Concerned Women for America were part of the lunatic fringe of the bible beating set, think again. A group called Exodus Mandate gives these  luminaries of the Religious Right a nearly failing grade on the culture wars. Looks like poor Tony Perkins and the Family Research Council need to go to summer school (or perhaps more accurately, summer bible camp).

Chaplain E. Ray Moore issued a Report Card at the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) in Nashville, Tennessee, on Feb 10, 2009, at a news conference, on how effectively major Christian ministries and organizations support K-12 Christian education or home schooling. Nine organizations were rated, many of which have actively engaged in the cultural war in the US for the past several decades. Moore said, “Even though these organizations have been valiantly fighting the culture war, they have suffered terrible defeats. They have not been able to arrest and reverse the moral and cultural slide by protests, lobbying, voting and legislative remedies. It’s time for these ministries to revisit their methodology and ask themselves if there is a biblical model for spiritual and cultural renewal.” The nine criteria used to rate the organizations in the K-12 Christian education Report Card included: promoting a Christian worldview and not promoting K-12 public schools as morally equivalent to Christian and home schools.

More below the fold, including a video by the founder of Exodus Mandate.I blogged about this AmTaliban organization earlier this year when its founder, retired U.S. Army Chaplain Lt. Col. E. Ray Moore, released a deranged video, “Call to Dunkirk,” to fulfill the mission of the organization, which is…

“to encourage and assist Christian families to leave Pharaoh’s school system (i.e. government schools) for the Promised Land of Christian schools or home schooling. It is our prayer and hope that a fresh obedience by Christian families in educating their children according to Biblical mandates will prove to be a key for the revival of our families, our churches and our nation.”
