Nihilists In Church Pants

Yesterday morning I drop by the Kindergarten Sunday School class to pick up my younger son, and was greeted by a mildly shocking and somewhat disturbing image. Upon the blackboard were three large capital letters:

G - O- D

And right next to those three letters was a rendering of a stick figure hanging from a noose. Whoa. I've heard a few negative things about the kind of stuff being taught in Sunday School nowadays, but I didn't realize that our kids were cleverly being handed a picture book version of Nietzsche.

It will be interesting to see where this kind of teaching leads. In a couple of generations, we will all be nihilists, no matter what kind of pants we wear...or don't wear.
