There are built in advantages for the United States when American families produce an educated, healthy, disciplined and moral generation of citizens. Historically, American society was made up of people who recognized our national future was dependent upon families passing along their traditional cultural and moral values to upcoming generations. Families were the most basic building block of any society.
Teaching young ones to love God, respect their elders, love their neighbors, study and work hard is beneficial to parents, community and the Federal government.
Most parents accept these responsibilities not because they see themselves as a cog in a huge government machine, but because they love their children and know what is best for them and their country. Additionally, most parents took children to church when they learned that although everyone falls short of the divine standard, God had a remedy based on the work of Christ at Calvary. This is why Americans have always regarded solid moral families as the backbone of our country.
Remember, parents do what a government cannot do for itself, namely supply and finance the next generation with education and disciplined citizens.
One would think it would be a national priority to assist these families in every way possible. Obviously, the better children are taught, the great advantage it is to our government.
It seems obvious that when a society has laws based on a value structure that has proven successful for 400 or more years and has used those values to teach their children the Christian virtues of love of God and neighbor, don’t lie, steal, murder, covet or commit adultery. Not earth shaking, just simple guides to help us get along with each other. Included is a means of redemption for when we ‘miss the mark’. For hundreds of years until now our government has supported these values that Christian parents taught their children. Today, our own government is establishing itself as the American family’s greatest enemy.
The battle in the war against Christian values began early in our history but accelerated with the actions of the Supreme Court of the United States, (SCOTUS). Supreme Court Justice Huge Black in 1947, and later, the Warren Burger and Renquist courts sequentially stripped all Christian families of their traditional God given rights as follows:
Justice Black insisted the First Amendment erected a wall of separation between church and state. During his career Black wrote several important opinions relating to church-state separation.
He delivered the opinion of the court in Everson v. Board of Education (1947), which held that the establish clause was applicable not only to the federal government, but also to states.
His majority opinion in McCollum v. Board of Education (1948) held that the government could not provide religious instruction in public schools.
In Torcaso v. Watkins (1961), he delivered an opinion, which affirmed that the states could not use religious tests as qualifications for public office.
Similarly, he authored the majority opinion in Engel v. Vitale (1962), which he declared it unconstitutional for states to require the recitation of official prayers in public schools.
The Supreme Court under Chief Justices Warren Burger and Renquist continued rewriting history by making the following decisions:
They “found” in the Constitution that it was unlawful to have officially sanctioned prayer in public schools based on the First Amendment. (Ware Engel v. Vitale, 1962). Also they found in Abington School District v. Shemp (1963) that mandatory bible reading was unconstitutional. (The Bible and the McGuffey Reader were the basic and ONLY textbooks in the public schools for over 250 years).
In 1973 Roe v Wade they found that women had the ‘right’ to abortion with some conditions.
In Miller v. California (1973), The Court limited laws, which banned obscenity, requiring them to pass the ‘Miller’ test.
In Lee v Weisman (1992), The Court determined officially sanctioned student led prayer was unconstitutional.
Sternberg v Carhart (2000) voided all laws prohibiting late term abortions.
Lawrence v Texas (2003) struck down all laws prohibiting sodomy.
These court decisions had NOTHING to do with achieving Constitutional rights but EVERYTHING to do with pushing a social and liberal anti-Christian agenda and replacing it with Humanist or Marxist ideologies. (See attachment that describes 3 Western Worldviews)
Today, the Federal and State governments are doing precisely what the Soviets did after they occupied Eastern Europe in 1946. Beginning in the public schools, they eliminated the Christian values that the conquered nation’s culture was based upon. We referred to it then as Christian ‘Deconstruction’.
Their objective was to replace Christian values with Humanist and Marxist values. Our present government is doing precisely the same thing today, and for the same purpose, and it is still called the ‘Christin Deconstruction’ as in Europe.
The storm troopers of change came mainly through the entertainment media and the universities where, according to David Horowitz in his book Radical Son says “…Marxists and socialists are now the tenured establishment of the academic world…More Marxists can be found on the faculties of American colleges than ever existed in the entire Soviet bloc.”
Interestingly our government, through SCOTUS decisions has chosen to remove over 50 million babies from our society, depriving our nation of a whole generation’s work force and forcing it to accept 20 million poorly educated aliens as their replacement.
By adding the problems created by no fault divorce we have 50 million children who have had to experience the problems associated with an almost 50% divorce rate.
By rewriting and/or not teaching American history in our public school system, most of our children today are growing up without a clear understanding of how our republic began in the first place.
If children do not know how their freedom was acquired in the beginning, how long it took or how much it cost to purchase, they will never know the true value of freedom. They also will never know the noble heritage the ‘left’ is seeking to deprive them of.
One need not be a prophet to recognize the future of a society that:
- Is rendering its own moral laws illegal thereby replacing long established morality.
- Killed over 50 million of its own citizens.
- Is promoting homosexuality in it public schools to replace 400 years of successful Judeo-Christian values, while pushing for approval of homosexual ‘marriage’ as well as all the weird sexual fantasies the human mind can envision under the mantra of ‘diversity’ and calling the outcome ‘normal.’
- Is turning parental control of children over to an increasingly malicious and dysfunctional Marxist oriented government.
- Is promoting ‘open borders’ and encouraging illegal immigrants to feed out of the same bowel we the citizens paid for.
- Is finding it more difficult to stretch a barbed wire fence across the border of Mexico than it was to send astronauts to the moon. In the interim we are becoming the biggest dumping ground for illegals, misfits and potential terrorists in the world, in addition to placing our own citizens in physical and moral jeopardy.
Given these circumstance, I am amazed at the nonchalant attitude and lack of concern or involvement by the very people who have the most to lose, namely parents. Handing our children over to an education system dedicated to the deconstruction of the parent’s values is frightening.
America is witnessing a massive transfer of legal power to people with a value structure based on the religion of Humanism. Humanism and Marxism have never ever produced personal freedom for anyone in the history of the world. Our present government is systematically dismantling America’s 400 year old traditional Judeo-Christian value structures and replacing them with failed Humanist/Marxist values.
A majority of nine men in black robes, and a President who has little traditional American cultural history himself, has said in effect, this is the way it’s going to happen to be America, regardless of your heritage, history or traditions, like it or not.
This is cultural and political suicide.
We are today witnessing The United States cutting its wrists and preparing to bleed to death.
