Knowledge of “…the separate and equal station, to which the Laws of Nature and of nature’s God [Declaration of Independence] entitle them” is no longer the basis for public school instruction in America. Church doctrine, justice, and families, composed of father, mother and children, are part of the God-centered cosmos. It is the enemies of citizen self-rule and “Spirit of the Lord” that rejects the people’s God-given right to make informed decisions.
In the late 1890s, Christopher C. Langdell, a Darwinian atheist and Dean of the Law School at Harvard University, switched his students from Higher Authority Common Law to secular Case Law, (David A. Noebel, Understanding the Times, Harvest House, 1991, pages 506–10; and Roy M. Mersky, Landmark Supreme Court Cases, 1992, pages 308–9). Since graduates from Marxist Darwinian-type law schools became a majority on the Supreme Court, the devastating imposition of atheistic secular Case Law has been forced upon the people’s government schools. The 1947 Everson v. Board of Education decision gutted the indispensable American God-honoring religious liberty First Amendment—the most important of the ten Common Law Bill of [citizen] Rights. Judicial changes eventually forced Higher Authority Ten Commandments and Golden Rule displays and standards for law from our courthouses and government schools. These Common Law standards were the standard for law acceptable to the people and had been recognized as the Rule of Law for hundreds of years.
In Engel v. Vitale, 1962, prayer composed by public school districts, even non-denominational prayer, was declared unconstitutional by lawyers on the Supreme Court. In Abington School District. v. Schempp, their similar judgment in 1963 effectively outlawed Bible reading in public schools. Additionally, the Abington School District v. Schempp decision was FORCED upon the states’ constitutions and local community government schools nationwide. This act is an unequivocal violation of the judges’ oath of office. Even parents’ requests in writing that their children be excused from attending or participating in such exercises were prohibited by the judges’ God-rejecting dictum. These horrific changes opened the doors for government judiciary-sanctioned union teachers tenure guarantees that empower a few radicals to lecture their dogma in captive student classrooms.
And when a few judges, textbook writers and even some theologs changed the historical use of the word “atheism” to the word “secular,” they interrupted the flow of knowledge. The word “secular” had been used historically to distinguish public government law from church law, both of which honored God’s Word. Secular now means God-rejecting atheism. Using changes in education to do this is a betrayal of the importance education has for reliable communication and knowledge. When lawyers on the Supreme Court compromised the Bill of [citizen] Rights, they corrupted a law that is unchangeable and constant upon which citizen knowledge and justice depend.
Well understood by framers of the Constitution, there is one Creator of life and the surest guarantee of a virtuous nation are attitudes based upon God’s Word that constitutes the Christian faith.
William Blackstone’s English Commentaries on Ten Commandment Common Law and man’s God- given conscience were used by Abraham Lincoln and other leaders into the 1960s. A quote from Blackstone Commentaries reads, “These laws laid down by God are the eternal immutable laws of good and evil . . .. This law of nature dictated by God Himself, is of course superior in obligation to any other. It is binding over the entire globe, in all countries, and at all times: no human laws are of any validity if contrary to this.”
