The secularization of education discriminates against students. The idea of the Ten Commandments as a basis for personal decision-making is fully substantiated by beneficial outcomes. Without that moral compass, our nation’s youth are left in the dark and under the CONTROL of destructive thinking. They are not given the knowledge for healthy families, fiscal common sense and national prosperity. When taxpayers figure this out, marginalization by teacher union bosses and teacher tenure will be exposed. This will open things up and give parents, along with 95% of the teachers (who are in agreement with the citizen majority), the freedom to install religious diversity back as a source of knowledge.
This struggle within our education system is not a debate between science and religion, but between religion and religion, atheism and theism. Science is simply the sphere in which the debate is taking place.
Dr. Michael Ruse, a leading evolutionist and authority on philosophy, points out in his recently published book The Evolution-Creation Struggle that the “theory of evolution is, in fact, religion.”* Dr. Ruse also writes: “Evolution is promoted by its practitioners as more than mere science. Evolution is an ideology, a secular religion, a full-fledged alternative to Christianity with meaning and morality. Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning and is true of evolution today.”
The change in American culture since the 1947 Supreme Court decision in Everson v. Board of Education, teacher unionization, and tenure law has led to a colossal increase in family breakdown, abortion, homosexuality, use of addictive drugs, and burgeoning needs for hospital and prison space. Universities and colleges dominated by the old European secular philosophy have become havens for alcoholism and dorm cohabitation by unmarried students. Some state universities have a department of religion dominated by atheists who serve as a campus mafia to destroy the academic standing of any faculty member who dares to suggest that there is such an alternative to Charles Darwin’s Origin of the Species as intelligent design or a God of creation.
“The first national study of four common sexually transmitted diseases among girls and young women has found that one in four [is] infected with at least one of the diseases, US health officials reported Tuesday.” One in four US teenage girls have STDs. The diseases, which are infections caused by bacteria, viruses and parasites, can produce acute symptoms … and potentially fatal entropic pregnancy … and cervical cancer.”**
In 2010, according to Pam Stenzel, a leading lecturer to young people regarding sexual abstinence, teenage girls in America today are carrying, on average, 2.3 sexually transmitted diseases. In one 24 hour period, 12,000 teens contract a sexually transmitted disease. In the 1950s there were five known sexually transmitted diseases. They could be treated with antibiotics. Today, there are over thirty sexually transmitted diseases and thirty percent of them are absolutely incurable. Among the possible disastrous results are a lifelong necessity of treatment as well as sterility, infertility, radical hysterectomy, cervical cancer and death.
“One of every 100 adults are in jail or prison, according to a new report documenting America’s rank as the world’s No. 1 incarcerator,” states a report from a new study by the nonpartisan Pew Center on the States. With more than 2.3 million people behind bars, the United States leads the world in both the number and percentage of residents it incarcerates.”***
These are merely symptoms of the consequences of the courts’ detachment from written and permanent law. Far greater damage is the hidden loss to the soul of American youth. Is it any wonder that studies show a significantly higher percentage of public school teachers send their children to private schools than non-teacher parents?”****
