Have you ever wondered why he we have so many of our young people who today are completely wrapped up in materialism and bling while having no moral compass to guide them in their thoughts and actions? Well, if you look at what has happened to our public educational system over the years it becomes obvious. The Left has been working hard for over fifty years to take out the last vestige of our religious heritage from textbooks and other facets of the classroom. Instead of celebrating the individualism which made America a great nation, they constantly ridicule it and rewrite history.
The Almighty Dollar and Big Government have been accepted by many Americans as the new God and for the less vocal majority that disagrees with them, we are expected to sit silently while our country is destroyed piece by piece by a small band of loud tyrants. The Christian religion with its devotion to moral living under the guidance of a loving Father is something that those tearing things down can't tolerate so, in the name of toleration, they tell us that we have to accept immorality as normal since we are the ones who are obviously intolerant, or racist, or homophobic or any other epithet they want to throw our way.
The only way to deal with this is to be strong in your values, build coalitions with those who share our values and speak up and do so loudly. And we also must insure that our children get the good grounding in the Christian faith that they need to live a life leading to salvation. That is the most important thing a parent can do: prepare his or her child to live a life for God for if he learns that, nothing can ever stop him as he will have the protection of Jesus beside him always.
If you can, get your kids out of public schools which have become nothing but propaganda centers designed to eliminate individuality and replace it with group think. That's what Common Core is all about. Put everyone on a track that will lead them to be a good citizen for the collective. Is that what you want for your kids?
The point is that we must cherish liberty and individual freedom and teach our children its value. If we do, they will develop to their fullest God given potential, not to the level that some bureaucrat in Washington, or maybe even at the UN thinks is appropriate. They aren't the Father and they don't know best.
God help us as we get to work trying to right a sinking ship and may he always bless America.
