Public Schools Promote What Scripture Forbids

by Al Benson Jr.

Very recently I read an article on http://www.wnd.com  written by Bob Unruh about a sodomite group in Scotland that is promoting a petition which demands that children from kindergarten on up be forced to “learn about homosexual, bi-sexual and transgender issues.” The moderator of the Free Church of Scotland labeled the proposal “a Trojan horse to impose an ideological perspective on all pupils.” He was right. This petition, circulated by a sodomite activist group, Time for Inclusive Education, wants children, from their earliest years of schooling to be indoctrinated in that which Holy Scripture forbids. I guess you could say those people have an agenda and it is clearly anti-Christian.

But that’s Scotland, you say, we don’t have to worry about that over here. Our public schools would never do anything like that, and besides, the school my kids go to has a Christian teacher or two and a great band program. What else matters?

Folks, I hate to rain on your parade, but this sort of thing is going on in this country also and, unfortunately, it’s nothing new. It has been going on for decades. Ask the people of Kanawha County, West Virginia about their textbook protest in the mid-1970s.

However, every once in awhile the sodomite agenda needs updating and it helps to have “useful idiots” like California Governor Jerry Brown in the governor’s chair who are more than willing to help it along. An article on http://www.cnn.com for July 15, 2011 noted: “Democratic Governor Jerry Brown said Thursday he had signed a bill that will require public schools in the state to teach students about the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans….’History should be honest.’ Brown said in a statement.”  Yes, Mr. Brown, history should be honest–therefore homosexual propaganda shouldn’t be paraded as history in front of students. Rev. Louis Sheldon, founder of the Traditional Values Coalition said: “It is an outrage that Gov. Jerry Brown has opened the classroom door for homosexual activists to indoctrinate the minds of California’s youth, since no factual material would be allowed to be presented. If parents don’t already have their children out of public schools, this should cause them to remove them.” Yes, Rev. Sheldon, it should, but it probably won’t!

And then there was an article on http://www.cbn.com for July 6, 2015 which carried the headline: “Gender Identity Curriculum Angers Parents in Virginia.” The article stated, in part: “Parents opposed to including the lessons protested at the hearing. Many are concerned they won’t be able to opt their children out of the classes because the lessons have been removed from the Family Life Education curriculum into health classes, which are mandatory.” Of course this stuff is mandatory. They want your kids indoctrinated with it. Don’t you get it yet? For heaven sake, people, wake up and smell the sodomite soda. The Education Establishment in this country wants your kids indoctrinated (brainwashed) with this kind of thing. It’s on their to do list, right near the top of the page. It’s not accidental, or some bureaucratic screw-up.  This is being done to your kids on purpose! If you have taught your kids at home that, according to Scripture this kind of behavior is wrong, they plan to change that with their indoctrination. The article observed that parents protested this at the hearing, and what good did their protest do? It’s mandatory for the kids to be fed this propaganda no matter what the parents want and the educational establishment will make sure it is fed to them. Mom and Dad’s wishes don’t matter. Get that through your heads!

If your kids remain in public schools they will, at some point, be fed this sodomite drivel because that’s what the agenda is. If your kids were raised in a Christian home, with Christian standards–then all that has to be changed–and these government school change agents are more than willing to work to circumvent what you have taught your kids–it’s what they live for! All this junk isn’t accidental, isn’t some bureaucratic snafu–it’s on purpose and they will continue to do it to your kids–on purpose–unless you remove them from that system. You can’t just join the PTA and work to reform the system. That has never cut the mustard and it never will. All this is window dressing, to keep parents thinking they have some voice in their kids’ education when actually they have none. I’m not saying all teachers are bad–they’re not, but the system they work for is and those who run that system have an agenda that will be forced on American youth–no matter what–unless you get your kids out of their system, and it is theirs, not yours.

If you want some info about what the public education system is trying to do to (not for) your children, look up John Taylor Gatto on line. He’s an ex-public school teacher who wrote a book about all this. Read the recent Blumenfeld-Newman book Crimes of the Educators. Check out Exodus Mandate, P O Box 10272, Columbia, South Carolina, 29211 or at http://www.exodusmandate.org  and sign up for their newsletter. You can do that on line, too. Begin to find out what goes on in these schools and then work to get your kids out of them.

Years ago I worked for a Christian home school program in the Midwest and I did a few years on the phones there. One afternoon a lady from New York called up and wanted home schooling information for her daughter. Turned out she was a public school teacher, yet she was going to home school her daughter. And I never forgot what she told me. She said “I’m here (the public school) every day. No way is my daughter going to this school.” I can’t say it any better than she did.

Losing Your Christian Culture? Thank a Public School!

by Al Benson Jr.

Recently I read an article by Chelsea Schilling on http://www.wnd.com where the author noted comments by Chaplain E. Ray Moore, the founder of Exodus Mandate http://exodusmandate.org which is a ministry started to help Christian families to get their children out of government, or public schools.

Chaplain Moore is also running for Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina, and Moore had some very precise comments about public education for Christians. He said: “If the evangelical community would step up and obey God in educating their own children, we could collapse the state model. We’re feeding the monster by keeping our children there.”

Chaplain Moore is right on the money, but I don’t think the majority of the evangelical community, at least many of them that I’ve run across over the years, really wants to hear it. Much easier to continue to “feed the monster” with their children and their children’s souls and there’s no real responsibility involved in that–just do it and don’t even think about it–and when you start losing your kids, then look around for someone to blame.

Moore observed: “When I see a family in public schools or a pastor in public schools, I know there’s a great blindness or an area of disobedience in their lives in that particular area. I think Christians are ignorantly doing this. There is no Bible verse that gives you permission–as a Christian family–to put your children under false doctrine and in harm’s way.” And make no mistake–public schools are about doctrine, not education. That’s not to say that every teacher realizes or knows this, but it’s true whether the individual teacher realizes it or not. If you think it’s not, I would encourage you to read Sam Blumenfeld’s book Is Public Education Necessary? or R. J. Rushdoony’s book The Messianic Character of American Education. It’s about doctrine.

Moore noted a disturbing statistic. He said: “We estimate 70-80 percent of evangelical Christian children who are in public school for their entire educational career are abandoning the church and the Christian faith in their early adult years. About 20 percent return after they get married and start having their own kids. It’s a holocaust going on in our churches, and we’re trying to fight a culture war while our resources are being depleted.” Some of us are trying to fight a culture war. Many, many Christians are not even aware there’s a culture war being fought or that they and their children are the victims. Christian ignorance in this area is legion. Lots don’t have a clue and they prefer it that way. As I’ve stated in previous articles, it’s easier for some churches to just shoot the messenger than it is to listen to the message. After all. little Johnnie’s history teacher is a Christian–doesn’t that make it alright? No it doesn’t. Unfortunately, especially in the South, Christians are really gung ho about public schools–which are part of the “reconstruction” their great grandparents were forced to endure.

And Moore said, quite accurately, that public schools are “indoctrinating children with a Marxist view of American history, environmentalism, evolution and other bizarre radical agendas.” But then this isn’t new. It’s been going on in the South since 1866 and in the North since the 1830s–and no matter where you go, North or South, Christians are busy gobbling it up, feeding the monster, and they don’t want you telling them they shouldn’t. When my wife and I started to home school, we got more opposition from Christians than from anyone else, so I know whereof I speak on this subject. Thanks be to God the church we now attend has a classical Christian school and lots of folks that home school. But in the past it wasn’t always that way.

And for Christians who think all the bad stuff happens in someone else’s school, I will close with an article I got from http://www.lifesitenews.com for April 20th of this year. The headline for the article is Lesbian Teacher: How I convince kids to accept gay ‘marriage’ starting at 4-years old. The article goes on to describe how this teacher in a primary grade in a public school in Ontario told a group at a homosexual activist conference how she has been using her classroom to convince children as young as four years old to accept homosexual relationships. She thought Kindergarten was “a great place to start.” What’s more, she got encouragement from the principal to go from class to class to talk about “what gay means.” This lady claims she has a “wife” at home. Folks, this is what goes on in many public schools–and just because this one happens to be in Ontario doesn’t mean you don’t have this stuff going on here.

Every time I read a story about some Christian youngster being harassed in a public school and the parent goes and complains, and nothing gets done, I wish I could shout “why do you leave your child in there? For Heaven sake, get him or her OUT!” I have friends in the Confederate and Southern Heritage movements that are teaching their kids and grandkids accurate American history after school and on weekends because they realize what the kids are getting in public school is utter drivel.

Unless Christians start waking up and realizing that they are in a culture war and that a major part of that war is being waged on them through the government school system, we will continue to lose 60 percent of our Christian kids to the world after they graduate and it won’t have made any difference whether little Johnnie’s history teacher was a Christian or not–protecting his job will have prevented him from telling little Johnnie the truth!
