God and Schools


I think this pretty much sums it up. 


This is why our nation is falling apart. For all those idiots that even wanted to remove GOD from our money, you don't take away from which this country was founded upon! 
I think our founding fathers are rolling in their graves with how we behave today as a country!



****The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.*****

My confession: 

I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat... 

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to. 

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking. 
In light of recent events... terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school... The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about.. And we said okay..

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.' 

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace. 

Are you laughing yet? 

Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it. 

Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us. 

Pass it on if you think it has merit. 



My Best Regards, Honestly and respectfully, 

Ben Stein

  7. Thank you for writing this post because I had considered it, but was too chicken (plus I have a tendency to say things before I really think them through and didn't want this to be one of those times). I grew up (through 10th grade) in Christian school and I HATED it. I've sworn up and down since I left there that I would NEVER do that to my kids & send them to Christian school, but honestly, it's looking better and better. I know there's no promise that my future kiddos will ever be safe, but at least God is allowed there!

  8. There is a really great pastor here in Atlanta – Andy Stanley. He speaks about faith beautifully. He touched on this exact subject actually after the terrible tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary, a town an hour away from where I grew up in Connecticut. He actually disagreed with some Christians who believe the removal of God from the public square is what caused the tragedy and I have to agree with him a bit. But he did make the point that the America culture “has lost the right to say “where was God?” He said essentially we've shoved God out of culture and then when God doesn't show up in culture, we're like 'where were you?'" That God is all – “Well, I was over on the curb, you told me I couldn't go to school, I can't be in government, ... you told me you don't really want me around.” But, he stressed, that’s not the reason this happened. Thought I pass on the link. http://jeremygreenlive.com/2012/12/17/andy-stanley-interview-on-bert-show/
