The problem with public education is the absence of a moral compass, it is not a need for more schools. Morals are not just good ideas; they are founded in a perfect understanding of man’s nature. Moral character supports truth, family, human dignity and civilized community norms.
Presidents, as well as citizens, attended church services held on Sundays in the United States Capitol Building. The pretext for removing prayer, Ten Commandments and the American Pledge of Allegiance from public schools was the fraudulent representations of President Thomas Jefferson’s beliefs, when Jefferson, “during his whole administration, 1801–1809, was a most regular church attendant.”
“After the Civil War, from 1865–1868, the House of Representatives in Washington, D.C. permitted the newly organized First Congregational Church of Washington to use its chambers for church and Sunday school services.” During that same time, specifically on May 13, 1866, Congress passed the Fourteenth Amendment which now, according to twisted law, forbids religious activities on public property” (James H. Hutson, Religion and the Founding of the American Republic, Washington, D.C., Library of Congress, 1998, p. 84).
Secular authoritarians object to religio-education freedom because of the superiority of Judeo-Christian realism. It was Bible-believing church denominations—Baptists, Presbyterians, Methodists and others, who insisted First Amendment freedom from government dictation applies to and for all religions, NOT JUST THEIR OWN.
Genesis 3:4-5 god-wannabes’ agenda is the exact opposite of freedom-based political correctness. Friedrich A. Hayek summarized it this way, “The whole intellectual climate [is a] complete perversion of language. Collectivism means the end of truth . . .. The most effective way of making people accept the validity of the values they are to serve is to persuade them that they are really the same as those which they, or at least the best among them, have always held, but which were not properly understood or recognized before” (Friedrich A. Hayek, The Road to Serfdom, 1944, p. 174).
From the beginning, the secular war has been between the tyranny and chaos that thrive when the prideful Genesis 3:4-5 god-wannabes attack the restricted use of government power promoted by the God-honoring Genesis 1:1 faithful.
