Trying to Cover the Smell

“A Christian worldview is not a condiment added to a plate full of neutral food in order to flavor it. The faith of our fathers is not an educational afterthought. The ‘potatoes’ always come from somebody’s kitchen. Sometimes Hindus, Muslims, and atheists can be induced to eat Christian potatoes (because the Christian education provided at the school is outstanding), but far more common is the practice of Christians eating unbelieving agnostic potatoes with lots of gravy slathered on to cover the smell” (The Case for Classical Christian Education, p. 95).
