#TXLEGE: Covetous political hack moonlights as Heretic Pastor to promote Socialized Education

"By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber."
2 Peter 2:3

"Pastors for Texas Childen" is one of the more obnoxious astroturf groups on Twitter; Empower Texans has a must-watch analysis of a recent event they held in Granbury:


  • Parental educational choice is "sinful."
  • Something, something "God's common money."
    • Note: LOL, see here.
  • "There's a big difference between what parents have to say, and what Pastor Johnson has to say."
  • The socialized education system hires bureaucrats instead of educating kids.
  • At Johnson's own meeting, teachers were complaining that the local superintendent was hiring bureaucrats instead of educating kids.
  • Teachers tend to get better pay in situations where robust choice exists.
  • There are 1.2 million school district employees in Texas.
  • Makes bizarre attack on private schools for not having alumni in the military.
  • "Thank God for Joe Straus."
    • Note: LOL, apparently he said this the day before Straus quit.
  • Democrats need to vote in Republican primaries.
Bottom Line: There's room for reasonable people to disagree about how to interpret what the Bible says about education (both at the personal and the public policy level), but the notion that shoveling MOAR MONEY into Caesar's protected monopoly is somehow constitutes "the Lord's work" (or some such nonsense) doesn't pass the laugh test.
