On Thomas Achord and Classical Christian Schools

So, poking around, I found an article on Thomas Achord, the (now former) headmaster of the Classical Christian school on Alastar’s Adversaria

Like, wow.

That’s a LOT of serious racism, classism, and social superiority-seeking going on in those Classical Christian schools.

(VERY Roman, by the way. The Empire would fit right in… along with her whips.)

These guys need to link up with the Racial Darwinists for maximum impact, to “become who they truly are”, so to speak.

And drop the Christian pretences.

I am very pleased that Gary North always loathed these Greco-Romans. For North, it’s God over Race.

Good to see.
