We tend to compartmentalize our lives. But when it comes to raising children that’s a fatal mistake. For one, it’s impossible. This meme, I think, says it all:
This is compartmentalizing. We don’t send our children to the schoolhouse for religious teaching. We send them for an “education” as if the butchers at Planned Parenthood, the LGBT, the ACLU and the union thugs are only hanging out around there because they’re committed to making sure that your children know how to read, write and do math. No, they are committed to a rounded education. They are committed to their own future, even if they have to destroy the lives of children to make that future certain.
As for me, I have different plans.
Our world has come to the place it has, a world that argues about the definition of words “male”, “female”, “marriage”– but worse than that, words like: “good” and “evil”–not because people voted for the wrong leaders, but because people were trained to vote for leaders who were going where they want to go. There’s one ironclad law when it comes to representative government; a law that is as unmoving as the law of gravity. That law is “Politics is downstream of culture”.
Not in the wildest dreams of the poor soul struggling with an attraction to the same sex in 1950 would he have dreamed of redefining marriage to accommodate his deviancy. The thought of running for office with “marriage equality” would not have ever crossed his mind. Not so today. No, the person running today must be for the new definition of marriage, and he must reject the definition that has always been in place up until now. So what changed first? The government, or those who elect the government? That’s an easy answer, and if you want to know how an entire culture was transformed, you need look no further than that sprawling, windowless, flat-roofed, government building just down the street.
But there is a long-term solution. And that’s why I’m posting this meme today:
What we’ve come to are two political parties that are vastly different in most ways, but which reject God. Sure, perhaps one more than the other, but both are increasingly God hating. Both candidates this year will only pay lip service to the God of the Bible and how he tells us to order a society. The will do this confident that those who are hearing what they want to be told will not know any better, such is the state of discipleship in homes and churches. They will pay bookoos of lip service about how they’re going to fix all the problems that have come our way as a result of rejecting God’s order. We don’t know what they’ll promise, but we can be sure it will mean more laws and less freedom.
So if you want freedom for your children, and especially your children’s children, you won’t let the power-hungry government-god/state anywhere near their precious young minds.
Imagine walking out to a car with no wheels on it and standing around it are hundreds of experts giving their explanation as to why they think the car isn’t working. And imagine that each expert is invested into his own answers, trying to sell it to the wards and masters in exchange for critical acclaim and cash. But also imagine that not one of these experts is willing to acknowledge that the real problem is the lack of wheels. He can’t acknowledge that because the whole concept of “wheels” is forbidden. That’s the institution today.
The fact is that the institution at one time did a stand-up job of educating children; back before “wheels” was banned from being thought about or considered.
So now we have another fad brought to us by another expert. It will, of course, render no results other than perhaps to bolster the founder’s ego and bank account. Why is that? Because the institution still won’t have any wheels.
The problem, you see, is not that children have never been able to get in touch with their emotions. The problem is sin, just like it has always been. And there is one way to deal with sin and put wheels back on someone’s life, and that’s through the blood of Jesus. But don’t try to tell this expert that. To make that case is to admit man is not all he cracks himself up to be; it is to admit that he is not ultimately in control and that he is working within the framework of a higher order than himself. That just will not do. And he will exhaust all your resources, the nation’s resources, and even the world’s resources; and he will have no problem destroying your children, to prove that one little point.
He will love data, but at the same time, he will refuse to see the data that points out the skyrocketing problems in the institution since the early sixties when it was given a blank check to try one scheme after another, with mounting cost and mounting evidence that the whole thing was headed to the dump.
But it’s still, miraculously, legal to opt out; and that’s is, of course, the best option.
Below is a great article concerning suicides among young women. The author sets up the point of his article by drawing an analogy from Token’s description of dragons in “The Hobbit”. He then applies that analogy to modern culture and its rejection of morality and a particularly troubling consequence of that rejection, the sharp rise in suicides by young girls.
Just a bit, but please click over and read it in its entirety:
It will come as no surprise to those who know something about dragons to learn that a dragon-culture will devour the innocent in a feeding frenzy of salacious wickedness. We know of the unholy holocaust of abortion, which devours the innocent flesh of babies, but we sometimes overlook the harmful effect on women that the unleashed dragons inflict. This was brought home to me by a recent article in the UK’sTelegraph which highlighted the fact that suicide had become a plague among British women, reaching record levels.
The schoolhouse is lost in a moral swamp. It can’t help your children, and it won’t. It is beholden to Secular Humanism which offers no reason to exist, nor purpose.
A free society is an anomaly in the context of history. Man wants to become ruler over his fellow man. He wants to impose his will for lots of reasons. It could be the hope for some Utopian society that he thinks he can bring about. It can be for the gathering of money by gaining the power to fleece his neighbor. It can simply be because he loves power. But the bottom line is, a free society is not a given.
But when one was born into a free society, and has lived in that society in the midst of the prosperity that freedom brings, he can take it for granted. After a few generations he will play fast and loose with his freedoms, and begin to let them be stolen.
Here is an excellent article that explores this line of reasoning from the Christian Post:
He gets right to his point, and mine, in his first paragraph:
I often ask people, “Who in his right mind ever thought it made any sense whatever to entrust to the government the shaping of the minds of the people by whose consent it is supposed to govern?”
Rarely have they entertained that question before, but usually they get the point immediately: Government-run schooling is a sure path, however long or short, straight or winding, to tyranny. Let the government determine curriculum, and ultimately it will determine what citizens think and how they vote.
No wonder Marx and Engels included “free education for all children in public schools” as the capstone of the Ten Planks of their Communist Manifesto.
It is a revelation for some that they themselves have had their thought forms, their narratives, metaphysics and epistemology handed to them by this institution. I know I did, which is why I’ve done everything in my power to keep the state and my children far apart.
When two people assign different meanings to the same words very little communication happens but a lot of confusion does happen. There are lots of important words that are defined by the institution one way, and defined by others in another way. One of those words is hate.
The institution defines that word as ideas that disagree with the institution. So when the institution says it’s against hate, what it’s really saying is that it’s against disagreement with their notions of truth. So hate is assigned to anyone who looks at the naked emperors that are their delusions and then calls them delusions. We see it in their so called transgendered campaigns, their homosexuality campaigns, their wealth redistribution campaigns, and their hatred of God campaigns. In the end, they teach that hatred is good, just so long as you hate the right things. But that only makes them hypocrites, but worse than that, it makes them teachers of hypocrisy.
Below is a video of a martial arts entertainer using his skills to preach the Gospel. In the video he is obviously in a gymnasium before what looks to be young men and women. But we know it’s not a government school gym because the Secular Humanists are NEVER going to allow the Gospel in your child’s schoolhouse. It is denied because the Gospel teaches proper hate by teaching us to hate our sinful nature, and for the Secular Humanist, man reigns supreme, and is basically good. There is no “sinful nature”. I’ll leave it to them to explain why they feel the need to go on and on about why everyone should hate all the “haters”, given that man is basically good.
But anyway, this man explains things that every young man and woman trapped in the institution needs to hear, especially those who realize that they’re in hopeless situations. The institution has no answers, but they deny those who do have answers entrance. Better for the hopeless youth to channel their anger toward the institution’s enemies than to be raised up out of dire situations and into meaningful lives.
Watch this video. It’ll take a few minutes, but I was encouraged, and I think you’ll be also:
There’s an old saying, “No matter where you go, there you are.” And we can tailor this to the education institution’s insanity too. “No matter what tradition you cast off, there will be a tradition that needs to be cast off”. So here we have an elitist product of the institution doing exactly what the elitist institution has taught her to do.
From the New York Post:
Santa Claus is banned. The Pledge of Allegiance is no longer recited. “Harvest festival” has replaced Thanksgiving, and “winter celebrations” substitute for Christmas parties.
So your child can’t be taught to pledge allegiances, because allegiances are based on nationalism, and nationalism leads to war.
And your child can’t be taught gratitude, because gratitude suggests there is one to which we owe gratitude who is above the state. Can’t have that!
And your child can’t be taught about Christmas, because Christmas points to a Savior, and a Savior suggests the need for salvation, and the need for salvation suggests that man is not basically good. Can’t have that!!
If there’s a tradition, no matter how old or engrained in the human psyche, they’re going to try to cast it off. It will go on and on because what they really hate is what is in their own hearts. Little do they know that the children they teach will eventually cast off the tradition of casting off tradition, and will probably settle on a religion that is willing to die for the very cause of America hating, Jesus hating, Jew hating that the institution was too cowardly to admit existed in their hearts in the first place.
This is foolery of course. People are going to be people, and the institution is not going to train people to not be people. The only question that remains is what WILL they succeed in training children to be? It’s all a grand experiment, and only time will tell. But just remember that your child is precious, and you don’t have to send him to the social laboratory to be experimented on by moronic elitists who think themselves wiser than they ought.

From the Blaze:
What was the shocking statement this teacher made? This:
“The only terrorists we need to fear are domestic white ‘Christian’ men with easy access to guns. Vote Bernie”
I actually don’t think he should lose his job. He posted this on facebook. He didn’t teach it to any “children” at his high school that we know of. And while many, if not most, of Sanders’ supporters are all in for limiting your rights to be a buffoon on Facebook, I cannot join them. But it is worth noting a couple of things:
Brought to this world by Islam
- Hatred blinds. This person, who will be teaching people’s children, is so filled with hatred and bigotry against white Christian men he doesn’t even know that he is incapable of looking at recent history, and the literally thousands of deaths brought about by Islam, and see a problem. No, it’s Christian white men who are the real problem.
Brought to this world by Islam
So why did he say something so inconsistent with the obvious? Because a news event that appeared to fit his narrative of reality happened with the abortion clinic shooter in Colorado. Never mind that it was a delusional man with no apparent political or religious connections who walked into a human butcher shop and shot people. And never mind that even if he had had religious and political connections, his death toll doesn’t hold a spark to Islamists who managed to murder over 3000 people in one city in a couple of hours. And never mind that more people die from guns wielded by black-non Christian men every day than white Christian men; no, never mind all that. White Christian men with guns are still the real problem. Such blindness boggles the mind. Yet, that same blind person teaches your children. And he is by no means alone. These sentiments fill people from the bottom to the upper echelons of the institution. Who would knowingly give that person permission to train their child?
- A rotten society is going to put rotten teachers in rotten schools filled with rotten kids. We know this. How can a rotten and morally retarded public school administration make moral judgments about the rottenness of its teachers? Answer? It can’t. The school system cannot be fixed. There is but one option. Get your children out!
From the article:
According to the Daily Herald, six members of the school’s MSA spent an entire morning placing hijabs on 17 non-Muslim girls as they discussed the garb’s meaning and tenets of the Muslim religion.
One non-Muslim girl–wearing a red hijab–said with more girls wearing them around school, “it could bring more acceptance to the religion and have more people become more aware.”
Jon Guillaume, principal of Vernon Hills High, expressed admiration for the MSA members.
Three things about this:
First, I’m fine with students sponsoring this event. Why would I not be? No one is coerced to become a Muslim. Of course I’m not fine with sending my child to the place where I find it okay to do such things.
Second, I’m fine with a “walk-a-mile-as-a-Christian” event too. But does anyone really believe that such an event’s going to get those warm fuzzy feelings inside from the state? Of course not. Is the principal going to “express admiration” for such an event? Or is he going to get all up tight and start to blab like a monkey on a string with “concerns” about the so-called “separation of church and state”? That’s because the state’s at war with Christianity and in love with Islam. My opinion is that the state loves slavery, and Islam is a slave religion that wields power ruthlessly and with cruelty, and the statist can’t get enough of that.
Third, the state religion is secular humanism. That means that it sees all religions as subservient to itself. Islam doesn’t have a problem with that thinking because Islam seeks to become the state. For the Muslim there is no distinction between the two. But Christians will not bow their knee to such things. They desire to live free.
So if you like the idea of your child becoming a Muslim slave to the Caliphate with the state’s glowing approval, then government schooling is going to be a heaven-send for you. You can be the first parent on your block to have your daughter sportin’ a fancy hijab round your neighborhood. And if you’re really lucky, your son might even attain to 72 virgins by blowing your neighbors up.
But if you want your child to live free, you’ll keep them home and teach them well.
There is your schoolhouse down the street. And then there are the cold hearted elitists who are bent on eradicating submission to, or recognition of, anyone or anything but themselves as the final arbiters of truth.
Case in point. Meet Luke Keller, a high school football player. But he wasn’t always that all-American healthy kid. No, he had a bout of setbacks in life. According to the “Independent Journal” article, “his dad left when he was ten years old, his grandmother, who had lived with him, passed away from cancer, and his grandfather had been sentenced to prison.” Of course his school had no answers. He began to entertain thoughts of suicide, like so many his age. But then he had an experience with God and those thoughts have since ceased. So now every time he scores a touchdown for his team, he points to the sky to give any glory that some might want to bestow on him to God, which is right and fitting. But it also rubs the God-hating institution the wrong way.
And of course when we say “God”, we mean the God of Christianity. Most everyone inherently knows that if Luke Keller was a Muslim, the referee would be drummed out of a job for calling a penalty if he gave recognition to Allah. For whatever reason, the institution is infatuated with Islam.
Unfortunately for every poor soul who attends public school however, God is to not be mentioned there because He challenges their authority. Nevermind the positive influence He’s had on Luke Keller, and so many like him. The institution will not be challenged, and if that means some kids commit suicide because of the meaninglessness they instill, then so be it.
But there is a wonderful school that can preach and teach God all it wants. That’s your school… in your own house.
