You won’t read this in current history textbooks.
I think Original Intent by David Barton explains a lot.
You are far more likely to see Barack Obama in our classrooms.
People should minimize their production, maximize their saving and self-sufficiency and walk away as soon as they can.
There is NOTHING in the Constitution that even remotely suggests that government ( on **ANY** level) should be in the education business.
I dare say that men like Madison and Cushing would not recognize the America of today, filled with politicians afraid to confess their faith or educators fearful of offending the sensibilities of their students with any mention of God.
If Madison and Cushing could see the monstrosity of single payer, socialist-modeled, cartel, monopoly schooling that is forced upon American taxpayers and their children, they would be **APPALLED**!!!
Madison and Cushing would immediately understand that it is impossible to have a religiously, culturally, and politically neutral education.
Madison and Cushing would immediately see that government schools would do only one thing well: CAUSE CONFLICT. Government schools inevitably cause groups of citizens to wage political warfare as each attempts to have its religious, political, and cultural worldview enshrined in the government temples of indoctrination!
Governments schools are a First Amendment and freedom of conscience abomination! They have **ALWAYS** trampled First Amendment Rights and freedom of conscience.
Solution: Begin the process of privatizing universal K-12 education.
“What remains unclear is why those that preach diversity and tolerance seem incapable of practicing those same virtues when it comes to Christians and the role of Christian faith in our American history.”
It’s very clear to me, a Christian —
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no one cometh to the Father, but by me. - John 14:6
Anyone who opposes the truth will accept any form of falsehood.
Socialists don't want you to look to God for Salvation and as provider. They want you dependent on government.
“Prayer in Government Schools”—a total waste of time.
Spending time, money, and energy on this issue is like fighting to get Prayer in Brothels or Prayer in Extermination Camps.
The only worthwhile objective, with regard to Government Schools is SHUT THEM DOWN.
