I'm always happy to see MSM articles that challenge assumptions about conservative evangelicals, the religious community in which I grew up. Particularly when they aren't just about electoral politics.
This post by David Wheeler highlights a group a lot of people probably haven't considered: evangelical homeschoolers whose reasons for opting out of the school system have nothing to do with objecting to the teaching of evolution.
A California court has reversed its previous ruling and decided that most forms of homeschooling are legal—a decision called a “tremendous victory” for conservative Christians critical of public schools.
