Comment on the naked link. From what I can see this is a video of a folded QRS-type piano roll. Any creased piano roll will not function for long because it will tear after a short period of time. Maybe I am missing something that you can clarify. If not, no big deal.

It plays the entire song of Smooth Criminal on an old crank style music box.

His Holiness became a Colbert talking point.

The erection of one’s rod counts as a form of glory (Theophylaktos of Ohrid, A Defense of Eunuchs, p. 329).

The whole forum is Mor. We're emanations of his godlike mind.

This is not true, this is not chalga music. This is orthodox chant. In Bulgaria have a lot of chalga music, but it is in clubs, not in church.

Well, in this video it's not typical chalga, rather modern folk music. But, at least for me, it's not Orthodox chant; rather a song using Orthodox elements (church, veil, some words and phrases)

This video has nothing in common with chalga, neither modern folk music. I told you earlier this video is orthodox church chant. Don't argue when you don't know. And it's not Благодаря ти Господи (Thank you Lord), but it is The Magi, kings of Persia. Do you hate Bulgaria, why you talking like that?

Thank you but I am not strange. I don't like that music - Bulgarian chalga music, it have it a lot and everywhere but everyone choose himself what to listen. Really is folk singer, she is not singing about God but in the moment she choose to make that song to intrigue the public. In Bulgaria have very good folklore but they replace it with chalga music.
Here is the chant I love: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SiLdmZch1E

1. Parents are not in school.
2. About half of all that are things that many parents don't know how to do, or can't afford.
3. The other half are things that many parents actively oppose teaching.
4. Teachers aren't government officials everywhere.

4. Teachers aren't government officials everywhere.

1. My judgment: parents are unnecessarily pursuing mammon when they may do without and raise children properly
2. Much of what she read, cost little to nothing; mostly civil behavior, courtesy, manners, morals, ethics AND reading, writing + arithmetic.
3. Teaching children things their parents oppose is............what? Justifiable?
4. Public education IS governmental teaching, thus they are gov't officials.

I am an American and cannot speak to your region. The speaker in the video seems American and is pushing, in a pleasant way of course, one of the largest union agendas in the liberal milieu:  to remove the God-given responsibility of parenthood, deeding it over to the state. In my house we call that evil/wrong/bad.
Your mileage may vary.

3. Teaching children things their parents oppose is............what? Justifiable?
4. Public education IS governmental teaching, thus they are gov't officials.

I am an American and cannot speak to your region. The speaker in the video seems American and is pushing, in a pleasant way of course, one of the largest union agendas in the liberal milieu:  to remove the God-given responsibility of parenthood, deeding it over to the state. In my house we call that evil/wrong/bad.
Your mileage may vary.

1. I get it that you're in favour of homeschooling. Many parents are inept at parenting, and many more are inept at teaching.
2. Not everyone is computer literate, though, not everyone can drive, and not everyone knows how to handle special needs.
3. There are several things that need to be taught despite parental opposition, not just sex ed. Not everyone lives in Texas.
4. If the government isn't paying your salary, you're not a government employee. The teacher's job is pretty much the same, whatever kind of establishment they work in.

I just don't see how sending children to school in any way encroaches upon the responsibilities of parenthood, and I've been on all sides of the issue.

What teachers really do all day

Isn't all that the job of PARENTS? instead of gov't officials?

1. Parents are not in school.
2. About half of all that are things that many parents don't know how to do, or can't afford.
3. The other half are things that many parents actively oppose teaching.
4. Teachers aren't government officials everywhere.

1. My judgment: parents are unnecessarily pursuing mammon when they may do without and raise children properly
2. Much of what she read, cost little to nothing; mostly civil behavior, courtesy, manners, morals, ethics AND reading, writing + arithmetic.

You've more exposure than I in the teaching arena so I see two problems here.
1. Off topic
2. At heart, fundie issues and POV.
