Required Materials or Books: your brain, your body and your book America the Strong, by William J. Bennett
Class Description: What is F.L.I.N.T.? It’s what makes America strong.
We live in a culture that often dismisses and ridicules conservative values. By the time liberal professors, the news media, and Hollywood get through with them, many young Americans are convinced “conservative” means extremist and intolerant. It’s a distortion that endangers America’s future. Bill Bennett and coauthor John Cribb explain what conservatism really means, using five fundamental principles summarized by the word FLINT:
America the Strong shows the next generation how these principles have made the United States a great nation and why they are worth preserving. It answers more than one hundred questions, from “Do conservatives hate the government?” to “What’s wrong with having an open border?” to “Why can’t rich people pay all the taxes?”
We will compare and contrast conservative vs. liberal beliefs on topics such as, but not limited to, abortion, affirmative action, the death penalty, the economy, global warming/climate change, gun control, immigration, religion and government. We will do this by examining what the Bible says about these topics, in order to equip us for discussions in the real world.

Teacher Information: I would love to tell you how many degrees I have, but I can’t. I am a former United States Decorated Combat Marine, former Mormon, retired Waco Firefighter, and professional musician. I have only been passionate and interested in a few things in my lifetime. So I have only studied Christian apologetics, which led me to conservatism and music. I spend my free time listening to GK Chesterton, Tim Keller, CS Lewis, and my church pastor’s podcasts and conservative talk shows.
