Many see the ousting of God from our public schools, in the form of the banning of prayer in 1962, as the beginning of our national slide to where we are today; children being slaughtered by classmates. Many of these same people want to see the reinstatement of prayer in schools as a first step toward healing. If only it were that simple.
First, before they banned God from school, they banned God from the Constitution. The neo-liberal left accomplished this by teaching in law schools, media, etc., that there are only five clauses in the First Amendment. However, there are actually six clauses.
Clauses 1 and 2 state what we can believe (in God or not); clauses 3 and 4 state what we can say (both individually and corporately); and, clauses 5 and 6 state what we can do (associate with whomever and/or lobby the government). The reason “Congress shall make no law” is because these freedoms are from God — not man.
The “coalition of evil” cleverly combined the first two clauses as though they were one clause.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion (clause 1) or prohibiting the free exercise thereof (clause 2).
Clause 1 is called the “establishment clause”. Clause 2 is called the “free exercise clause”. They combined these clauses years ago in a teaching and public relations offensive as a single clause and gave it the color of the negative; thereby kicking God out of the Constitution. Because Christians were not engaged as “Watchmen on the Wall”, the downward slide began, and they attacked prayer schools next.
Soon, after eliminating the teaching and remembrance of God from the public square, came the assault on family, marriage, and now the very concept found in Genesis 5:2, “Male and female created he them.” Many Christians still act like they did when God was kicked out of the Constitution. They will not even fight for their children and grandchildren.
On top of removing God from teaching, and convincing boys they should not aspire to be men, we add the drugging of many males, and almost ALL the male school shooters, such as the recent tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The government education monopoly forces this upon students along with the actual teaching of sexual licentiousness; and when that spiritual guard rail falls they all are vulnerable to falling. Look at what St. Paul wrote to the Galatians almost 2,000 years ago:
Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry (Baal worship), sorcery (pharmakeia), hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. – Galatians 5:19-20
The word sorcery in English renders as pharmakeia, in the original Greek. It is the root word for pharmacy (administering of drugs). England destroyed China with pharmakeia in the 19th century. Baal worship in the days of Elijah had drug use as a feature as prominent as male/female prostitution in their temples. Now, the “coalition of evil” is using pharmakeia to destroy America, and young males are the prime target.
I say it is too late for mandated prayer in schools. We would not want the same people who now teach Harry to become Sally; who push adultery and fornication on little children; who teach envy and hatred of white people and rich people; who teach kids to protest (dissensions) for the sake of protesting; who fight tobacco but encourage marijuana (pharmakeia), etc., etc. Do we REALLY want these same people leading our children in prayer?
PRAYER needs to be put back into the home. The current government-controlled education monopoly MUST be destroyed. We need “school equality”. No more public schools, private schools, parochial schools; just schools. And, then eliminate the school boards from being between the parents and their children.
IF parents can choose a college, they can choose any other school. Give each parent a voucher and free up ALL schools to compete equally for the money — one voucher at a time. After we destroy the school monopoly, THEN we can put prayer back in school – voluntarily.
No more $1,000,000 checks to the school board. Send a $10,000 check to the parents; then see what happens when Frederick Douglass Academy says, “Teachers are armed; boys are boys; girls are girls; and all will pray”.
They could be across the street from “Liberace High School”, where they would say: “Gun Free Zone; gender is fluid; and we do not pray here”. It may be a 50/50 nation politically, but not when it comes to our children. I would bet the mortgage money that without government force, “Liberace High School” would go out of business – and the neo-liberals in the “coalition of evil” know it.
