INDOCTRINATING CHILDREN WITH SECULAR HUMANISM
Dr. Laurie Roth Ph.D.
Fall is here and Christmas is coming. Thus prepare yourself for those pesky manger scenes, crosses and references to Jesus birth. Thankfully, the ACLU and other concerned communist groups have sued to erase our nations history, get rid of those hideous memorial crosses and fossilize displays of the 10 commandments from shore to shore. Of course some of our spiritually psychotic, including some in our Supreme Court continue to wax ever so balanced and fair. For the last few years some California school districts have been cramming Islam down the throat of junior high kids, all in the name of history. One teacher told students they would adopt roles as Muslims for three weeks to help them learn what Muslims believe. She instructed them to use Muslim names, recited prayers in class, had them memorize and recite a passage from the Koran and made them give up something for a day, such as TV or candy, to simulate fasting during the month of Ramadan. The final exam asked students for a critique of elements of the Muslim culture. As you can imagine, with many Christian students and families this caused quite a stir. Thus a law suits. This went clear to the US Supreme and of course we can find relief with their practical and fair response. Not!!!
Of course the court would know that Christianity, the real heritage of our nation has all but been marginalized, sanitized and fossilized, thus the near removal of this burdensome Religion from the public square, history classes, music performances, prayers and Bible studies….on and on. Not only do many administrators and professor types show amazing leadership and fair play but so do some of our high up military, by court marshalling Chaplain Klinkenshmite for praying in Jesus name.
Of course, that disgusting and messy Jesus has always gotten in the way……… blowing up people with grace, forgiveness and love and poisoning people with power and healing, worth and hope. Did our Supreme Court get the absurd over reach and indoctrination here…………no. They rejected the appeal Monday by evangelical Christian students and their parents who said that the Contra Costa County school district engages in unconstitutional religious indoctrination, having them recite language from prayers as harassment.
It makes perfect sense, rather than to explain various Religions in a history class and lecture, to make children practically become Muslim, reciting, praying and planning for nearly a month. Perhaps when the Christian segment in history comes up we could have the ever so curious students memorize the old and New Testament, confess their sins and pray to Jesus. Oh but no…….extreme and psychotic openness is only for sex perversion training, Islamic training and anything other than Christianity. You know how dangerous that Religion is……what would we do if we all kept blowing up with love and changed hearts?
In very predictable other news……The Dems want Hastert to resign. More Internet conversation comes out with Foley and this massive revelation has nothing at all to do with election timing and manipulation. Truth be told there are probably more than a few perverts, drunks and liars in congress. Frankly, given the track record of even some of our past Presidents, I would ban all interns and pages from capital hill. Either that or put locks on their clothes and have police escorts wherever they go.
What is it about some of these Politicians? Why can't they just do the old fashion naughty behavior…..you know…..think back to ancient history and you will remember. The sin and nasty behavior behind closed doors. It used to be that folks still had enough shame built into their being that acting out meant keeping things private. Adultery was still wrong and shameful. Having a gay affair was shameful. Playing around with minors was shameful. Getting drunk was shameful. Now, these behaviors are career opportunities and the password into leadership greatness.
So, have I lost my mind or does anyone else think it is obscene in
a public Junior High school to cram the Muslim Religion down our children's
throats, any more then it would be unacceptable to cram any other
religion for a month down their throats. History and lectures are
one thing, putting on behavior, adopting a life style, praying and
reciting scripture is another.
