Many Americans today look out the windows of their self-centered, narcissistic lives and say, “How did we get to this point in our country?”
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

When government schools were instituted in the 19th century.

We should work to abolish them.

It was left for the Baby Boomer generation - the most pampered, spoiled and narcissistic generation of Americans

I would agree the boomers were more pampered, spoiled and narcissistic than their parents, but the subsequent generations have them beat.

When moral and ethical training is put aside to better educate, life go into a downward spiral. Ever incresing in speed and depth.

Prayer being removed was a result of a turn to toward post Christian America than began after WWW1.

In a day when we are saying, “to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits”, (Isa 30:10) such a word is needed.

The role played in raising up children in the way they should NOT go is underestimated.

Dewey became the father of modern American education, and he and his disciples worked to change the basic moral belief system that undergirded the moral educational system, in which [when the Engel v. Vitale case was decided] an estimated 75% of the school systems in the South had religious services and Bible readings (Colliers 1961 Yearbook p. 224). http://peacebyjesus.witnesstoday.org/CauseEffect.html

Having much the same thoughts at that article, i began collecting stats a few years ago, quantifying America’s War with GOD. http://peacebyjesus.witnesstoday.org/RevealingStatistics.html
