Public schools teach reading, writing, arithmetic, science and even sex education; can’t have prayer, that’s against the law. The idea that parents and children must forego family values in the classroom is absurd. If these stories are any indication of how administrators in our public schools or Planned Parenthood represent, or in this case, ignore family values under authority provided by “in loco parentis”, then we need to change the definition to just plain “loco” because parents have lost their say in the matter.
It would be a welcome step toward restoring America to that which our founders envisioned if the Supreme Court were to favorably word their ruling, to acknowledge once and for all times, the nature of rights, that they apply uniformly across state boundaries, to include and spotlight the predominant idea that such rights are not granted from government at any level; but exist because of the eternal nature of rights.
We live in perilous times; the very foundations of our society are under attack. If we are to survive as “One nation under God”, much less prosper, we need to adhere to those principles which were taught from our inception, principles which included humility before God, prayer in private and publicly to acknowledge the Lord as our head, moral values which provide the lawful marriage of a husband to a wife in order to raise a family and keeping the commandments.
Imagine that; the US Postal Service reported a steady decline in volume causing it to lose billions of dollars while UPS has shown a steady increase in volume and profits. Could it have anything to do with the fact that one is managed under free market conditions while the other languishes under the burdens of bureaucratic mismanagement typical of most government agencies?
I read through the history and found something else of interest, Eid Al-Adha commemorates the willingness of the Prophet Abraham to sacrifice his son Ishmael in response to God’s command; notice the difference? Christian scriptures record that Abraham sacrificed Isaac, not Ishmael; so what’s the big deal?
We live in curious times filled with challenges which seem to consume all our best efforts. Many of us are looking for answers; how do we return our nation to those foundational footings necessary for restoring the promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? We have been studying and searching through all that is available, history books, commentary by the finest minds in our day as well in times past; have we taken the next step and asked for divine inspiration?
Yes, Sir, somebody’s putting pool tables in towns across this land, corrupting our youth for several generations. We’ve reached the point where closing a prayer in the name of Jesus Christ is cause for dismissal, teaching basic Christian principles is a “hate crime” and “In God We Trust” is offensive; that’s my two cents worth!
The war between those who desire to be free and those intent on enslaving us is a never ending battle. The image of soldiers falling under fire doesn’t do the concept of war justice. Each day we as citizens serving in our limited capacities; teachers, carpet salesmen, doctors, lawyers and even locksmiths must take up the cause of freedom. Each generation of Americans needs to understand the slim difference between citizenship and servitude.
