A first grade government-school teacher in Indiana sparked outrage after sending a note to children’s parents demanding they stop talking about God, Jesus, and the devil, according to a report by FOX59. The letter urged parents to talk to their children about how it was allegedly not appropriate to discuss God or Christ in the classroom.
Parents were so shocked that they went to the press, with the story quickly sparking headlines, first across Indiana, and later across the nation.
“With Mccordsville Elementary being a public school, we have many different religions and beliefs, and I do not want to upset a child or parent because of these words being used,” the note that was sent to parents read in part. “If you go to church or discuss these things at home, please have a talk with your child about there being an appropriate time and place of talking about it.”
After the word got out, school officials went into damage control mode. Basically, the school claimed it was not aware of the incident and had not approved it, and that the teacher was new.
“In this situation, we want to be sympathetic to all our students with diverse backgrounds,” said Mt. Vernon Schools Superintendent Shane Robbins after parents complained. “But at the end of the day, they have the freedom to say things as long as it’s not disruptive to the environment.” He also said the incident would serve as a “learning opportunity” for the teacher involved.
Unfortunately, though, despite the school district’s official policy not to “advance or inhibit” religious observances, government schools have for decades been indoctrinating children into the false and harmful religion known as “humanism.”
John Dewey, the founding father of the current government-school regime, was a fervent proponent of this irrational faith that denies the existence of God and calls for abolishing private property and the nation-state.
According to a study by the Nehemiah Institute, some 80 to 85 percent of Christian school children will develop a secular-humanist worldview after being brainwashed into humanism in government schools. Similarly, a study by Dr. Brian Ray of the National Home Education Research Institute found that 75 to 85 percent of public school children from Christian homes will abandon their faith as adults.
The entire basis of the Supreme Court’s ban on the Bible and prayer in school is a giant fraud. The First Amendment prohibits Congress from making laws respecting an establishment of religion. It does not prohibit school districts from reading the Bible, offering prayer, or anything else. In fact, public schools were originally created to ensure that all children knew the Scriptures thoroughly.
It is time for America to reject the lawless decrees of unelected lawyers and return to God and Truth as the foundation of knowledge and proper education.
