The sad reality...
"We will not give up home schooling our child," she states. "If it means moving from out of state, however we have to do that, we will do it because that is what we feel that God has called us to do."
It's really hard to imagine what our times have come to; a little over a hundred years ago and our children would be sitting in classroom in which the teachers set aside time for the children to learn about the Bible. Schools in colonial America, at the time, were controlled by Christians, because the State had not been formed yet. This being the case; the textbooks that were in use are as follows -
The New England Primer in 1690.
After the American Revolution, Noah Webster created a textbook in which he called the Blue Book Speller.
McGuffey Reader in 1836.
Even after this, by 1900, other text books that were in use, all had Bible quotes in them to teach morality to the children. As we will find, this all changed shortly after the out-set of the 20th century...
At the start of the 20th Century, many if not all schools started their day with the Pledge of Allegiance and a reading from the Bible.
The first fracture in the moral teachings of the public school system occurred in 1925, when the newly formed ACLU paid a teacher in Tennessee to teach evolution.
At that time; all schools throughout America taught Biblical Creation, and it was against the Tennessee state law to teach evolution. However, Within a short 4 decades, the laws were reversed, Creation was outlawed, and Evolution was made madatory. The ACLU started using the Courts then to change school policy. In 1948, the Supreme Court used the "Seperation of Church and State" argument, or lie rather, to ban school prayer, in 1962 the Supreme Court once again declared that prayer in school was unconsitutional, which was about the time Madeline Murray O'Hair took her case before the Supreme Court. Shortly after, in Kentucky, in 1980 (Stone vs. Graham), the Supreme Court declared that posting the Ten Commandments in school classrooms "violated" the Constitution.
The harmful effects created by the ACLU and Supreme Court ruling was such that, our children are demanded to conform to the Left-wing ideology of the ACLU where Liberal courts prevail all across the country, such as in California where they've recently made the ruling to force children into the public school system of Left-wing brainwashing - such an agenda includes - Sexual education, where children are taugt about sex at an early age, leading them into fornication. The homosexual agenda, very radical, demon possessed, hate-filled groups who seek to silence people of faith, and teach children a deviant lifestyle, wherein, shows the responsibilities of the parent that were neglected at home. All these factors are factual examples of the some of the things that are contributing to low SAT scores, because if you think about it, when children are exposed to a curriculum that will otherwise take their attention from, or neglecting the needed things to get them through everyday life, like reading, writing, and math, and teaching them morals to make civil citizens, then they're being robbed of their future. They were better off before they entered the public school system, which is considered to be evil nowadays in my opinion....But in reality, it's not the public school buildings that are the harm, they're just buildings meant for teaching children, it's the people who do the teaching that is the problem, and the problem at its roots is those who make the decisions for our public schools, which is the ACLU...The ACLU is a curse on American soil. Oh how I wish we could be rid of the ACLU!!! It is my earnest prayer now, that we can somehow, some way, defeat the ACLU for the good of our Nation, and especially for our childrens sake.
The ACLU ruined everything that made America great at one time in history, in going against everything that the Founders intended for the New America, and...
Just to give one an idea of how the Founding Fathers regarded Christianity and the important role Christianity played in government and our civil institutions, here are some of the quotes from our Founding Fathers...
(Ed note: Please note, when one of the Founder's said "religion" they always referred to Christians and Christianity).
John Adam's once said - We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion . . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
James Madison - "We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments ."
Benjamin Rush, Signer of the Declaration of Independence said. "[T]he only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be aid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments. Without religion, I believe that learning does real mischief to the morals and principles of mankind."
Noah Webster, author of the first American Speller and the first Dictionary said, "[T]he Christian religion, in its purity, is the basis, or rather the source of all genuine freedom in government. . . . and I am persuaded that no civil government of a republican form can exist and be durable in which the principles of that religion have not a controlling influence."
Gouverneur Morris, Penman and Signer of the Constitution. "[F]or avoiding the extremes of despotism or anarchy . . . the only ground of hope must be on the morals of the people. I believe that religion is the only solid base of morals and that morals are the only possible support of free governments. [T]herefore education should teach the precepts of religion and the duties of man towards God."
Fisher Ames author of the final wording for the First Amendment wrote, "[Why] should not the Bible regain the place it once held as a school book? Its morals are pure, its examples captivating and noble. The reverence for the Sacred Book that is thus early impressed lasts long; and probably if not impressed in infancy, never takes firm hold of the mind."
John Jay, Original Chief-Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court , "The Bible is the best of all books, for it is the word of God and teaches us the way to be happy in this world and in the next. Continue therefore to read it and to regulate your life by its precepts."
James Wilson, Signer of the Constitution; U. S. Supreme Court Justice, "Human law must rest its authority ultimately upon the authority of that law which is divine. . . . Far from being rivals or enemies, religion and law are twin sisters, friends, and mutual assistants. Indeed, these two sciences run into each other."
Noah Webster, author of the first American Speller and the first Dictionary stated, "The moral principles and precepts contained in the scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws. . . All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible."
Robert Winthrop, Speaker of the U. S. House, "Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled either by a power within them or by a power without them; either by the Word of God or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet."
George Washington, General of the Revolutionary Army, president of the Constitutional Convention, First President of the United States of America, Father of our nation, " Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society."
Benjamin Franklin, Signer of the Declaration of Independence "[O]nly a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
"Whereas true religion and good morals are the only solid foundations of public liberty and happiness . . . it is hereby earnestly recommended to the several States to take the most effectual measures for the encouragement thereof." Continental Congress, 1778
Those are just a tiny sampling of the thousands and thousands of documents by our Founding Fathers, and their teaching the importance of the Christian Truth and morality for a civil body government and citizenry, quite simply, for the survival of the Nation.
Very different from today, the Courts in this country have barred God and anything to do with Chrisianity from our public schools and filled them with the evil of Atheism. When we do this, then America is on the road to disaster, and we are getting closer by the day to that moment.
God help us as a Nation! Pray for America!
