DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE FAITH OF A CHILD
Source: Advocates for Faith & Freedom: Published July 2008
Paige Allen, a student at Eagles Peak Charter School in Temecula, California, has the faith of a child bold and unshaken. Last month this ten year old girl was threatened wiht expulsion from her public school for expressing and sharing her faith during the school day.
Paige’s teacher had asked students to write a short statement explaining the good and bad things that happened throughout the day and place them in a jar i in the classroom. Paige, a Christian, often referenced her faith during that sharing time by writing Bible verses she memorized and putting them in the jar. As a result the principal informed Paige she must stop speaking about her faith to her classmates. It is disturbing to hear public school officials attempting to censor a ten year old’s faith; especially when just about every immoral viewpoint is allowed in public schools, as well as, the teaching of Islam and other faiths running rampant in the school system. What an alarming contrast when one considers it was no long ago the Bible in a public school classroom was held in high regards.
Because of her actions in the classroom and on the playground, Paige’s mother, Heather Allen, received an email from the principal that read, “Paige may not evangelize at school. Specifically, Paige may not read Bible verses aloud in class. The good and bad jar (which is the class share time) are for good things that happen during the day, and bad things that happen during the day. It is not for verses or phrases of any kind … Paige may write about her faith in her journal, where she and her teacher can see it.”
Advocates for Faith and Freedom sent a letter to the school demanding that they cease from violating Paige’s First Amendment rights under the United States Constitution. In response to the school’s original letter, which erroneously cited the separation of church and state as justification for its actions, we responded with the following statement: “Freedom of religion is neither retained nor protected by those silencing those who hold sincere their religious beliefs. Before violating another students constitutional rights, please educate yourself regarding the true foundation of this country and how hose who laid that foundation believed freedom to be attained.”
“The day after receiving our letter, the school apologized to Paige and it appears the matter has been resolved.”
What Happened to the Bible in Our Public Schools?
In the early history of our blessed country the Holy Bible was used as a primer, in fact it was the primary source used in the little one room school houses across America. America was educated largely upon the principles of that book. The greatest county in the history of the world was produced because of those principles. Included in that book are the Ten Commandments. America did well for more than 200 years and then we real education. We began to follow Dewey and his educational philosophy, a better way to educate our children. The Bible and prayer were quickly removed. Teachers and school officials are no longer able to administer corporel punishment. Most of our children don’t even know songs like, “My Country Tis of Thee”, and “God Bless America.” As a child I remember well our entire grade school student body would stand at the flag pole (while the flag was begin raised) and sing “God Bless America.”
Today, our children cannot experience what causes children to be proud and thankful to be an American. It has become far more important to be politically correct less we offend someone that doesn’t believe in God, or who has some questions about what it is and means to be an American.
In most American schools children are not able to talk about God. About the only press He gets in our educational system today is when the big test is coming, a little bit like the fox hole thing. All of this ignorance in our education system while Muslims in these same schools are able to trumpet the name of allah until the school bell rings. Even the non Muslims students have Islam curriculum imposed on them, e.g., memorization of the Koran, dressing Muslim apparel. One teacher in California went so far as to give her student a crossword assignment that when completed read, “there is no god but allah!”
As yes, were doing well. I think I understand why children no longer stand around a flag pole each morning and sing “God Bless America.” Who in their right mind could ever believe He would respond. To ask for God’s blessing seems to be an exercise in futility when we have banned Him from the classroom, junked his textbook, and live as though His commandments were never written.
But who is to say that our Replacement Educational Theology isn’t working. Once we got rid of the Man and His Book, we now can glory in an educational system that nationally is dysfunctional. We have children without parents, parents who have never been responsible, a drug epidemic that is eating the heart out of our youth, ghettoes across America that are war zones, and educators who have an impossible job. It really is good to know that we have come all this way by being the best education society in history.
I will give it to the Muslims. They know what they believe and they are committed to their Jihad. They put their money where their mouth is and of course their money comes from their oil we buy. It’s really a wonderful arrangement. They understand it’s not possible to cut off every American head, so they become very bright with so many petrodollars, or is it eurodollars? Saudi Arabia in the past five years has invested more than 70 billion in America, most of which has gone to establish Islam chairs in most of our major colleges and universities. The result, our youth are being hijacked by a theo/political movement that if not stopped will cut the heart out of America. Ah, but in the name of political correctness, we have removed God and His Book from the educational systems, and in that vacuum is flowing a surging wave of militant killers.
