Let’s tighten up the language and clear the air about the basics for public education.  The language of secular open-mindedness, along with Darwinian origin and meaning of life, have proven to be diabolical enemies of the rule of law.

The underpinning for the rule of law rests in the July 4, 1776 Declaration that gave birth to the United States of America.  All men “… are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of those ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.  The Declaration of Independence is universal and immortal in scope.  Along with the Declaration, the citizen’s Bill of Rights (of which government employees cannot legitimately violate) added later to the Constitution provides the design.  The Constitution is the tool for implementing that design.

Appellate court judges need not bow down to atheistic secular legalese.  The impartial non-sectarian Supreme role of a Higher Authority, emphasized in the Declaration, is justifiably appropriate when writing a court opinion.

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.

Using twisted renderings of the Bill of Rights, leftist lawyers and tenured radicals in education have forced Americans–good teachers, as well as the citizen majority–into submission.  They terrorize by denigrating the reputation of teachers who dare to disagree and endangering the financial solvency of those who must hire expensive lawyers to defend traditional American values.  Secular militants have shut down ideological competition by preventing religious, political and academic freedom on many campuses throughout the nation.  Militants who oppose citizen self-reliance and limited government in America are effectively muting the voices of tens of millions of concerned citizens.
