Public School Compulsion

school_prayerTwo weeks ago I made the following statement: “if you can isolate children, and train them to believe that there is a wall of separation between God and government, then you can enslave them—or rather—they will have enslaved themselves.”

Juxtapose that thought with this.  You can’t subjugate and enslave a biblically literate Christian people. A Christian culture will recognize and reject tyranny before tyranny can get a foothold.

A Christian people, by virtue of their understanding of God’s creation, their knowledge of history, their comprehension of the divine origin of law, and their assurance of heavenly citizenship, will never suffer earthly leaders who do not speak and act lawfully. A self-governed Christian people would not allow those who mock law and justice to lead them.

In order, therefore, to subjugate a Christian people, you must first de-Christianize them. You must remove, from the culture, that which prevents you from conquering them. Piece by piece, Christian beliefs must be removed – along with the memory of those beliefs – from the minds of the people. This will take time, and has through successful compulsory public education.  This is the system of education we currently know as government schools.  This institution was designed to destabilize and, over time, destroy the original moral fabric of America.

This process was begun in the 1840s by men like Robert Owen and Horace Mann and later continued by Robert Dale Owen and John Dewey.  These men by their own admission were socialists and communists who realized that the best way to subvert and destroy “Christian” America was to train America’s children to disrespect their parents, and most importantly, their parents’ values, beliefs and traditions.  Beneath its vacuous rhetoric purporting to “care about the kids”, this is appears to be the current mission of the National Education Association.

Remember, just because you have education doesn’t mean anything if you are educated the wrong way.

Woodrow Wilcox


Declaration signer and founding father, Dr. Benjamin Rush, also known as the Father of Public Schools, said, “The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments.”

The Northwest Ordinance, first enacted in 1787, then reenacted in 1789 by Congress and signed by President Washington, stated, “Religion, morality, and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.”

Scripture is very clear that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge so it no wonder that Christianity and her moral codes were and should remain the backbone of our education system.

Since the 1850s, this public, government-run school system has become more and more entrenched and more and more expensive. Of course, no amount of money stolen from taxpayers to finance the secular conditioning of their children’s minds can have any effect but to destroy the culture and the country.

I agree with Dr. Rush; “Without religion, I believe that learning does real mischief to the morals and principles of mankind.”

Unless and until education is done God’s way, under the influence, control and jurisdiction of the family, there is no hope for any improvement.

    Anyone who’s really paying attention can see this: Christianity is the one thing guaranteed to stand in the way of tyrants, and thus will be the first thing potential tyrants attack.

    Anyone who’s been led to believe that Christians are the oppressors is being played for a sucker, if they could only see it.

    I’m not sure what you folks are smoking over there, but it must be really good shit to alter your perceptions so insanely. Obama giving the finger to the Pope? Really??? Absolutely disgraceful.

    Sure, let’s put religion back in the schools. But the truth is that you don’t want religion back in the schools unless it’s YOUR version of Christianity. Most likely you don’t even want to introduce children to the concept of other religions. Maybe we should have “Christian only” public schools and all the other religions can just go to a different school where maybe their beliefs would be addressed. But since they aren’t Christian, it’s doubtful since they are lesser somehow. Better yet, let’s just start building madrasas so we can turn out religious fundamentalists (otherwise known as terrorists) just like ISIS. Then our Christian jihadists can go and fight the Muslim jihadists and have one massive battle to see who’s god wins. Oh wait, that already happened. It was called the Crusades and everybody slaughtered everybody else in the name of god. I’m sure a good time was had by all.

    Stop whining about YOUR god. In the U.S., you are free to worship 24×7 in your home, your car, your office, etc. You can even pray at school! You can cram a bible up your ass if you feel it brings you closer to god. You can really do anything you want, but you can’t force your god on other people. There is a REASON our founding fathers established this country without an official religion. They read their history and knew the folly of a state religion. They freaking fled their countries to get away from state religions which is why they were determined to give Americans the freedom to worship, or not worship, as they please. So why do you persist in saying that we were founded as a Christian nation?

    “The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion” George Washington

    “Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise” James Madison

    “Of all the systems of religion that were ever invented, there is no more derogatory to the Almighty, more unedifying to man, more repugnant to reason, and more contradictory in itself than this thing called Christianity” Thomas Paine

    So stop the whining. Christians are SOOO persecuted boo freaking hoo. 70% of Americans call themselves Christians yet you see your influence and lifestyle slipping away? Really? What about the other 30% who have put up with your majority since this country was founded? We’d like to know that we can live our lives the way we see fit without fearing that you will chop our head off for not believing what YOU believe. Yes, I’m being a bit overly dramatic (stepping into your territory here) but it’s happening with ISIS so how many steps away are we from that happening here if you had your way? The civil laws of this country SUPERCEDE god’s laws and as a member of the 30%, for that I am grateful.
