A Christian homeschooling parent sent me an email after finding my blog through this week’s Carnival of Homeschooling. It went something like this (edited to remove long, rambling passages of Biblical misquotes and proseltyzing):
I am a Born Again Christian and a homeschooling parent. I read the Carnival to find appropriate, edifying writing from a perspective similar to my own. I was offended by your entry in the Carnival due to your reference to the “s-word” (Not socialization but that other one). If you choose to continue blogging about your experience as a homeschooling parent, you should put a disclaimer warning people of your tendency to be profane and sometimes downright vulgar. Your blog is not suitable reading for those of us pursuing Godly thoughts.
Gee. What can I say to that? I thought the Venom part of the blog title was pretty much all the disclaimer I needed.
And, just in case you are continuing to read the blog (which I assume you are since your IP address keeps showing up in my referrer stats), I believe you owe me a big ol’ “Thank You” for not publishing your name and email address. M’kay?
