My reaction to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling on the Pledge of Allegiance is a little different than most of those you will read or hear elsewhere.
Is it a correct ruling? No.
Is it a ruling that has anything to do with the Constitution? No.
Is it unexpected? Not by me. To me, it was just a matter of time.
Let’s remember that in 1962 and 1963, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that prayer in the schools was unconstitutional. The fact that it took nearly 40 years for the other shoe to drop is something of a surprise.
You see, there are people in America – some of them in positions of significant power – who want to remake America in their own image.
The trouble is, America is the first country in the world to be created in the image of a godly nation. The founding fathers studied the Bible to see what it revealed about the way men should govern themselves. There was never a thought in their minds about creating a country divorced from God.
Over the years, extreme secularists, materialists, socialists and others have chipped away at the American creed – at the Constitution, at the Declaration of Independence. They have tried to convince us those documents don’t really mean what they say. They have tried to persuade us that they are archaic and in need of updating. They have tried to explain that these statements are actually “living documents” subject to interpretation and re-examination under changing circumstances. They have even tried to suggest that these men, despite their words and deeds to the contrary, were not really Christians.
These activists have brought government into every aspect of our lives – despite specific constitutional prohibitions against overreaching federal power.
Now, the architects of that unconstitutional way of life tell us we must conform to their ungodly standards. We must do nothing to offend them.
We can yell and scream about this all we want. But it won’t change the direction of this country. I say it’s time to call their bluff – and make their whole unconstitutional system fall of its own dead weight.
What do I mean? Every American outraged by this ruling should not even raise a whimper of protest. They should not argue. They should not complain. Instead, they should remove their children from these ungodly, hostile government schools. They should do it now. They shouldn’t wait until the situation gets any worse. Home school is the best option. For those who can’t do that, choose a worthy private institution. It will be the best choice you ever made for your children. There are 10,000 reasons for making this choice.
I say let the atheists have the government schools. Let the homosexuals have them. Let the socialists have them. Let them fight out the curriculum issues with the Muslims. Jews and Christians should get out now.
What will they have? Not much. Meanwhile, your children might actually get educated.
If responsible Christian and Jewish parents did this all over America tomorrow, it would set off a revolution in this country. Gone would be the multi-billion-dollar Department of Education boondoggle. Gone would be the condom education. Gone would be the sexual propaganda and the moral relativism. No way tens of millions of parents are going to continue to be soaked in taxes for schools they don’t use. Not only will your children be liberated, the whole country would be.
It will be like the collapse of the Soviet Union – hundreds of millions of people freed overnight.
That kind of revolution would spread. Freedom would soon be breaking out all over America.
The alternative is the kind of pathetic protest I expect to see. If you act like a doormat for 40 years, expect to be treated like one. If you invite abuse, expect it to continue. If you act like a slave, be prepared to be treated like one.
This ruling may or may not stand the test of an appeal. That doesn’t really matter. Either way, the schools are no longer your schools. You know that.
It’s time for action, not words. It’s time to be a part of the solution rather than part of the problem
Pull your children out.
This is the way parents should have responded 40 years ago to the U.S. Supreme Court rulings. They should have picked up their kids and gone home. Instead, they succumbed. Instead, they adapted to the changing morality. Instead, they did what they were told.
Get your children out, and don’t look back.
