Values

Values:
Timothy McVeigh did not kill with guns. The Boston Marathon Bombers did not kill with guns. Evil people will kill with anything available: bombs, pressure cookers, cars, anything. Bad men with guns are almost always stopped by good men with guns. Taking away fertilizer, pressure cookers, cars, or guns from law abiding citizens is not the answer. If we teach children that life is not sacred, but abortable and disposable, that we come from filth and animals, and there is no God, then we should not wonder when people murder, act like beasts, and live as if there is no God. I support the rights guaranteed to each of us by the 2nd Amendment.

What about God and Bibles in schools? What about Separation of Church and State? The actual wording is "In order to ensure citizens freedom of conscience, the church in the US is separated from the state, and the school from the church." Article 124 of the Constitution of the US...oops I left off two letters: SR. That's right, that is the Constitution of the USSR, Communist Russia, not the United States. And how did that Soviet style religious freedom work out? Separation of Church and State in the United States is a MYTH. And virtually no one knows that and virtually no school or teacher is teaching it. Our Founders made "In God We Trust" our national motto, our Pledge of Allegiance honors, "one nation, under God," there is a chapel with an open Bible and stain glass window of George Washington kneeling in prayer in our nation's Capitol building, and our Congress begins every day in prayer led by a tax payer paid minister. The Supreme Court has the Ten Commandments on the walls and sculptures honoring Moses, and court opens each day with the loud proclamation, "God save the United States and this Honorable Court!" (See books and materials by David Barton and the classic "America's God and Country by William Federer).

I challenge you, ask anyone, even history teachers, where the words "separation of church and state"come from. I can count on half a hand the people who have answered correctly. The words "separation," "church," and "state" are found nowhere in the Constitution, nowhere in The Bill of Rights, nor anywhere in the Northwest Ordinance, and only the word "separation" is used in the Declaration of Independence referring to our separation from England. In fact, the Northwest Ordinance, signed into law by Pres. Washington on August 8, 1789 and one of our 4 most important Organic Documents, requires: "Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged." Schools are responsible for teaching religion and morality, and in a nation where oaths were taken on the Holy Bible it is no mystery that the religion to be encouraged was Christianity. When one reads the drafts of the First Amendment, written by Christians Fisher Ames and James Madison, it is clear the intention is to limit government, not citizens: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...." The entire purpose of the Bill of Rights was to limit government, not the people. The notion that any of the first ten amendments limits the people contradicts the entire reason the Bill of Rights exists: many of our founders refused to sign the Constitution enabling and empowering the government unless there were limits or "shackles" upon its powers. Even Thomas Jefferson's use of the term "wall of separation" in his 1802 letter indicates a protection of religious rights, though shackles is a better metaphor, as a wall hinders those on both sides, and clearly the intention is to limit only government, not the people.

Many parents would send their children to Christian and religious schools and home school if they could use their tax dollars to do so. It is not the government's place to educate, miseducate, and indoctrinate our children. We need to offer educational choices and vouchers so parents ensure their tax dollars go towards educating their children in mind and heart in the traditional values and truths that made America the land of the free: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness." Children who are taught to honor the Creator God, respect authority, and love others as they love themselves are less likely to go wrong.

Funding Planned Parenthood to abort babies and sell their body parts (documented on youtube) is evil.

Forcing parents to pay for schools that overlook, bypass, or openly deny our Christian history and Founders' faith is tyrannical and perverse.

Teaching students that there is no Creator and that some eternal space dust magically came together on its own and came alive and formed all living things (that is called Spontaneous Generation and was disproved by Christian Francesco Redi in 1668 and by Christian Louis Pasteur in 1864) is not scientific. Evolution IS Spontaneous Generation, the disproved superstition that life emerges from nonliving material. Pasteur's work laid the the cornerstone of Biology, the Law of Biogenesis: Life only comes from life. Sounds an awful lot like Genesis: eternal dust makes nothing come alive; eternal God, who is Life, created all life.

Where did God come from?" some may ask. I ask, "Where did your magic space dust that made everything come alive come from?" "It has always been here," they answer. I reply, "So has my God. So you believe and have faith in eternal magic dust that spontaneously generates life violating the Law of Biogenesis. And I believe in an eternal God who creates life and is in harmony with Biogenesis, for life comes from Life, and all life comes from the life forms God creates. As Charles Darwin himself acknowledged, "There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms, or into one..." (Origin of Species, 1860). "To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I confess absurd in the highest degree...."

Deceiving people that our "one nation, under God" and schools separate church and state, and disrespecting the Pledge of Allegiance, the National Anthem, our precious Flag and our Divine Creator have NO place in our schools or public tax dollar expenditures
