I have to wonder how long God will allow this nation to remain the, "land of the free and the home of the brave."
Tragically, some misguided, ignorant Americans, like the debauched Romans, are still demanding that Christians must remain silent and live clandestinely in caves or be fed to the lions in the government's coliseum.
However, those who really care and would like America to remain a bastion of religious freedom must, simply must! Teach our children that those claiming America was founded as a secular nation are woefully ignorant of our nation's history, it's foundational documents and practices.
Therefore, if you want your children to know the truth - here are some places you might begin:
Show them America's "birth certificate," the Mayflower Compact. Especially make them aware of the ending "chief end and aim" phrase that so clearly explains why the Puritans came to America and what they expected accomplish. Aren't you ashamed that if a teacher were to read this in a public school classroom today, they may well be arrested!
Tell them who really founded Harvard, Princeton and Yale and why.
Show them in our Declaration of Independence who really grants Americans our "inalienable rights." Show them this document contains nothing about "inalienable rights" having anything to do with a secular society. Show them in the concluding phrase when the signers pledged even their lives - what they clearly stated they were placing their "firm reliance" upon.
Read to them George Washington's "Farewell address." Show them what he predicted the future holds for a nation that attempts to govern men devoid of the use of the Holy Bible.
Show them much-maligned "deist" Thos. Jefferson's signature on the first public school textbook purchase document. It might also be useful to explain to them that this textbook, a Holy Bible, is not about secular government.
Show them the Louisiana Purchase document and read to them why Thos. Jefferson insisted public schools be built in that territory. Show them that again, he said nothing about wanting schools in order to foster a secular nation.
You might even take them to our nation's shrines in Washington, D.C. Take them into the Library of Congress and show them what is carved on the marble walls show them no secularist's babblings are there.
Take them to the Supreme Court building and show them the "Ten Commandments" posted on the wall. Teach them why the marble lion is mounted there containing the words, "Lex Rex." Explain to them that "Lex Rex" was placed there in order to depict the basis of our American system of justice. Teach them the author of "Lex Rex" was not a secular humanist but rather a Presbyterian minister!
Take them inside our nation's capitol building rotunda. Show them the huge paintings of Biblical figures on the walls and ceiling… not some secularist philosopher. Take them to the Washington monument and show them what is written on the faces of the steps climbing up the monument and show them what is written on the metal cap of the monument.
Show them our money and the motto, "In God We Trust" and teach them only the imprudent would believe that was printed there by accident or only to be a cute slogan.
Teach them how essential it is for mankind to know the truth in order to remain free. "Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free."
Show them that the words, "separation of church and state" are not contained in our Constitution. However, show them Article 52 of the constitution of the USSR where "separation of church and state" was contained and… tell them what happened to that nation!
Show them Article I in our Constitution's "Bill of Rights." Teach them the words, "Congress shall make no law" are words that are simply there to limit the power of our government in ecclesiastical matters - only the irrational believe they were placed there to sanction the abolishment of Christianity.
Teach them while they are young and teach them well. One day when they are older and when they meet the "Professing to be wise" followers of Sartre and Neitsche -- they will be able to discern lies from the truth.
Even your three-year-old can understand what all secular humanists have yet failed to comprehend.
