Among the most basic of all human rights are to live according to one’s own religious faith and to bring up one’s offspring as one sees fit. For those of us in the Judeo-Christian tradition, the wisdom imparted by the Almighty to King Solomon expressed in Proverbs 22:6 instructs us “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
But today this right is being stolen by the government. California is not the only state depriving citizens of their parental rights, but they are often the most egregious. Imagine imposing a grades K-12 curriculum training children in the tenets of progressive sexuality with no ability for their parents to opt out for them. You don’t even have to imagine because this is now reality.
In every perverse policy implemented in California, Hawaii is seldom far behind in playing copycat. Those of you who have children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren in public schools today need to carefully monitor what they are being taught because their hearts and minds are being stolen from you.
The National Socialist German Workers’ Party, which has gone down in infamy as the Nazi Party, recruited adolescents to serve the Füehrer, a title which Adolf Hitler assumed meaning leader or guide. The totalitarian government would guide the children, not those who brought them into this world. Boys and girls were told to betray their own parents if they did not remain totally loyal and dedicated to Hitler.
Chairman Mao Tse-Tung also indoctrinated the youth of China. Now Xi Jinping is once again clamping down on freedom of expression and recruiting kids to turn in their parents even for just holding worship services in a house church.
For the 18th year in a row, Open Doors rates North Korea as the most oppressive regime in the world and the hardest place for Christians to survive on Planet Earth. Young people are told to follow Kim Jong-un and worship him and to betray their parents if they see them with a Bible or hear them mention Jesus Christ.
Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Gaza are preparing both boys and girls to breach the border fence into Israel and to slaughter Jews.
Whenever governments co-opt the youngest generation for their own nefarious purposes and deny parents the right to raise their own kids, an entire generation is corrupted, the future course is set and predetermined and the people ~ their own people ~ suffer the consequences.
The common thread in all of this is that ideologies that are insecure need to enforce their dominance, being unable to rely upon people freely choosing their way of life. This applies to Communist governments in China, North Korea, Cuba, Vietnam. It applies to Islamic regimes from Iran to Gaza and back to Indonesia. The state and the religion are one and the same.
Here in the good old USA, Democrat Progressive Socialist Old Guard embraces the New Guard. It used to be that liberals just wanted your money to pay for their extravagances. Now they demand your very soul. They also have their eyes set on ripping your children from your grasp.
So what are you going to do about it? First, those of us in blue States dominated by leftist ideologues need to regain control if we ever had it or to get it even if we didn’t. Don’t allow the public schools to continue indoctrinating our progeny and depriving us of our heritage and legacy.
Keep after your kids’ teachers, school principals, local school boards, boards of education, local legislators, mayors, governors and all officials that determine what your children are being taught in their classes. Also lobby your U.S Senators and Representatives. In a case such as Hawaii where you know you don’t have a snowball’s chance of changing their minds, vote them out of office!
If possible, put your impressionable boys and girls in Christian Schools which still know the difference between boys and girls. But, even if you can afford to do that, don’t neglect the public good by ridding our society of corrupt evil influences. Get involved in local campaigns and elect better men and women at all echelons of government. Consider seriously even running yourself. Sometimes the only way to get a job done right is indeed to do it yourself.
The election on November 3, 2020 will be the most critical one you will have ever voted in thus far. Some of the Democrat contenders are far to the left of anything Hillary Clinton ever said about needing a village to raise a child.
They despise conservatives and everything we stand for. They realize that if they can’t dissuade us from our beliefs and sway us to theirs, that their control of the educational system will enable them to take away our children. The next generation of Americans will be lost if we don’t act decisively very soon.
I knew who I was at a very young age. There is absolutely nothing a socialist can say or do to remove that deep-seated conviction. The da`wah to get us to betray our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and convert to Islam will likewise never work on me.
My parents had free rein to raise me as they chose and as they believed was for my own good. Now that I am a senior citizen, those sound roots in American culture, patriotism grounded in a firm understanding of our country’s founding and history, and the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, will never leave me.
But think now of your kindergartener being taught that he or she is gender fluid. That sexual experiences can begin at any age and take any form whatsoever. Everything goes. Absolutely nothing is off limits.
The birds and bees discussion has been replaced by witches and cauldrons. They are brewing up a concoction to poison your child’s mind.
I’m trying to put this all into perspective. Consider if Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, James Madison and George Washington had grown up under those conditions. If there had even been a Declaration of Independence and a U.S. Constitution, what kind of distorted values do you suppose they would have enshrined? Nothing like what has brought us through nearly two and a half centuries since then to this critical fork in the road where we now stand.
The people we elect at all levels of government are those who determine the course our country, our state and our local community will take. The values and belief system they embody will be imparted to our children.
It’s more than just our schools and educational system. It’s our entire national infrastructure. As responsible parents and responsible citizens we must get involved and we must stand up for what is right.
How far have we come since Benjamin Franklin, America? Have we replaced our national icons with the likes of Ilhan Omar? Who are the thought leaders of today? Are they firmly founded in the Judeo-Christian tradition? Do they believe that laws made by mortals are subservient to Sharia?
Or are they just too dense to learn from the mistakes of the past? How you answer this question and how you respond to this challenge will determine whether future generations of Americans will inherit the same wonderful country that our parents gave us!
