Secular militants have shut down ideological competition by preventing religious, political, and academic freedom on many campuses throughout the nation. Haters of citizen self-government in America are effectively muting the voices of tens of millions of concerned citizens.
The war against the Judeo-Christian foundation for American law, self-government, and the spirit of liberty extends beyond leftist radical censorship of American history and foundational American beliefs from public school textbooks. “A decorated pine tree in the Ames High School cafeteria has been taken down because of complaints from a high school employee and some parents” (The Tribune, December 4, 2010). Reporting the words of the school Superintendent, “We are in the business of educating students. I didn’t want this [decorated pine tree] to become a distraction … so we decided it would be best to take down the tree.” His frankness about a few people who were intolerant of a pine tree within the sight of students is commendable. The tree was in the school for the traditional Christmas season, but apparently they dared not even call it a Christmas tree.
It is needful that we reject the spirit of rebellion and enjoin the spirit of truth that empowers man to storm the strongholds of evil. It is spiritual wisdom that enabled this nation to become the most blessed civilization in history. The restoration of spiritual glory–the potential to reassert our culture’s values of freedom, education, prosperity, and truth– is at hand.
A Word about Christmas… “In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him” (I John 4:9).
