This morning, when I first saw the cover of the new edition of Time magazine, my heart soared like the eagle. America gets it. America really gets it, and it’s forcing the media to get it, too.
The same might be said about public-school courses on the Bible nationwide. There aren’t that many. But they’re rising in popularity. Last year Georgia became the first state in memory to offer funds for high school electives on the Old and New Testaments using the Bible as the core text. Similar funding was discussed in several other legislatures, although the initiatives did not become law. Meanwhile, two privately produced curriculums crafted specifically to pass church-state muster are competing for use in individual schools nationwide. Combined, they are employed in 460 districts in at least 37 states. The numbers are modest, but their publishers expect them to soar. The smaller of the two went into operation just last year but is already into its second 10,000-copy printing, has expressions of interest from a thousand new districts this year and expects many more. The larger publisher claims to be roughly doubling the number of districts it adds each year. These new curriculums plus polls suggesting that over 60% of Americans favor secular teaching about the Bible suggest that a Miss Kendrick may soon be talking about Matthew in a school near you.
This is wonderful news for America; few things have harmed this nation more than the illegalization of prayer in school. One of those few things is the illegalization of Creationist thought in school, as the secular humanist ideologically-biased teachings of both Darwinism and Heliocentrism debase, corrupt, and pervert the minds of the young when presented in an unchallenged classroom format, as if though they were the Ultimate Truth rather than interesting and controversial theories.
Meanwhile, the enemies of human thought continue to reach into the minds of our children through the corruption and depravity of the public school system.
Through its innocuous-sounding “educational” programming arm known as TeachKind, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has found a way to reach school children starting as young as kindergarten with its extremist agenda. The opportunity for PETA to gets its message into the classroom has been paved, at least in part, by various laws on the books in at least 12 states mandating humane education in public schools — thus creating a demand for curricula centered on teaching children about the humane treatment of animals.
This inanity is beyond retort, yet children are constantly taught these debased, agenda-based values: “Meat is murder!” while abortion is, of course, nobody’s business but the murdering mother and her accomplice doctors.
Luckily, there’s something you can do about it. Petition drives like this are only the tip of the iceberg. Soon, the groundswell of anti-secularism that comprises American patriotism will drown out these simpering loons, consigning them into the oblivion of their own lies and iniquities.
Let us pray.
