I don’t know about you, but I look around America and I don’t even recognize this nation any more.
I suppose every generation says the same thing as they look over their shoulder at history and wonder what happened to “the good-ole-days.”
But this time I honestly believe that something has changed in the land of the free. My father’s generation witnessed a change in transportation, communication, manufacturing, and other areas than greatly enhanced the living conditions of all Americans.
But my generation has watched a true sea-change as the entire foundation upon which this nation was built has been shaken by an earthquake that has fundamentally transformed the American culture.
Isn’t that what President Obama promised us back in 2008…a “fundamental transformation” of the American way of life? Was it possible that he was able to ride into office on a hay-wagon full of “new age” ideas that the government had been cultivating for over three scores.
Did Obama merely “reap the whirlwind” from two generations of the bad seed spread throughout our government schools? Would such a “transformation” have been possible in pre Department of Education days when the school board curriculum was determined by elected local butchers, bakers, and candlestick makers who felt a responsibility to train their children in the values of the community? I think not.
Yielding the education of our children to Caesar has produced a nation of Romans.
Schools are not religion free zones. There is plenty of religious indoctrination being poured into the young skulls full of mush…it is just not Christianity. The suffix “ism”, a distinctive doctrine, system, or theory, has supplanted the word “religion” in schools. Human-ism is the grand-daddy of them all. Environmentalism, atheism, agnosticism, hedonism, idealism, liberalism, spiritualism, and communism are merely denominations of the religion of Secular Humanism. Humanism is the worship of the god of self. It is the spawn of all other isms.
Have you ever read the Humanist Manifesto? Take a look at it here. Notice how many of the signers of it were educators. John Dewey, the Father of American Education, and Behavioral Psychologist BF Skinner were huge promoters of Humanism. Notice the number of signers who were Unitarian ministers. Today, Humanism is the accepted religion of the government schools.
Dewey and Skinner are crediting with structuring the current educational system. Both were atheist, but they are on fire for Jesus today!
Two atheist set up the atheistic school system that currently “educates” American children. Below are brief summaries of the 17 planks the Humanists promoted. This is how we got here.
“We believe, however, that traditional dogmatic or authoritarian religions that place revelation, God, ritual, or creed above human needs and experience do a disservice to the human species. Any account of nature should pass the tests of scientific evidence; in our judgment, the dogmas and myths of traditional religions do not do so.” —Plank 1
Promises of immortal salvation or fear of eternal damnation are both illusory and harmful. They distract humans from present concerns, from self-actualization, and from rectifying social injustices. —Plank 2
We affirm that moral values derive their source from human experience. Ethics is autonomous and situational needing no theological or ideological sanction. —Plank 3
Reason and intelligence are the most effective instruments that humankind possesses. There is no substitute: neither faith nor passion suffices in itself. —Plank 4
We reject all religious, ideological, or moral codes that denigrate the individual, suppress freedom, dull intellect, dehumanize personality. —Plank 5
In the area of sexuality, we believe that intolerant attitudes, often cultivated by orthodox religions and puritanical cultures, unduly repress sexual conduct. The right to birth control, abortion, and divorce should be recognized. —Plank 6
It also includes a recognition of an individual's right to die with dignity, euthanasia, and the right to suicide. —Plank 7
The conditions of work, education, devotion, and play should be humanized. Alienating forces should be modified or eradicated and bureaucratic structures should be held to a minimum. —Plank 8
The separation of church and state and the separation of ideology and state are imperatives. The state should encourage maximum freedom for different moral, political, religious, and social values in society. —Plank 9
Hence the door is open to alternative economic systems. We need to democratize the economy and judge it by its responsiveness to human needs, testing results in terms of the common good. —Plank 10
The principle of moral equality must be furthered through elimination of all discrimination based upon race, religion, sex, age, or national origin. —Plank 11
Thus we look to the development of a system of world law and a world order based upon transnational federal government. This would appreciate cultural pluralism and diversity. —Plank 12
We believe in the peaceful adjudication of differences by international courts and by the development of the arts of negotiation and compromise. War is obsolete. —Plank 13
The cultivation and conservation of nature is a moral value; we should perceive ourselves as integral to the sources of our being in nature. We must free our world from needless pollution and waste, responsibly guarding and creating wealth, both natural and human. Exploitation of natural resources, uncurbed by social conscience, must end. —Plank 14
It is the moral obligation of the developed nations to provide - through an international authority that safeguards human rights - massive technical, agricultural, medical, and economic assistance, including birth control techniques, to the developing portions of the globe. World poverty must cease. —Plank 15
We would resist any moves to censor basic scientific research on moral, political, or social grounds. —Plank 16
The world must be open to diverse political, ideological, and moral viewpoints and evolve a worldwide system of television and radio for information and education. —Plank 17
I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being. These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach, regardless of the educational level—preschool, daycare, or large state university. The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new—the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism, resplendent with its promise of a world in which the never-realized Christian ideal of “love thy neighbor” will finally be achieved. — Humanist John Dunphy
Our churches have failed us. The government schools oppose everything the Christian Gospel teaches. Most pastors are cheerleaders for the local government indoctrination center. The cowardice and capitulation of our pulpits to the “isms” has trained Americans to support abortion, homosexuality, environmentalism, tolerance, diversity, and big government.

Obama is in fact a representative of the people. He is as Christian as the average American. Most church goers cannot recognize the difference between what their kids hear in school and what they hear in church.
Education is thus a most powerful ally of humanism, and every American school is a school of humanism. What can a theistic Sunday school's meeting for an hour once a week and teaching only a fraction of the children do to stem the tide of the five-day program of humanistic teaching?" (Charles F. Potter, "Humanism: A New Religion," 1930)
Get your kids out of the government fool system. The Devil is training your kids. We have lost on common sense.
Our government fool system has created a nation of amoral fools. That’s how we got here.
