First, the secular left demanded that prayer be taken out of the public school system. Next, they insisted that evolution be taught as a scientific fact and any mention of creationism be excised from the discussion. Now – if an incident in Katy, Texas is any indication – they want to explicitly teach children that God is a myth.
“Today I was given an assignment in school that questioned my faith and told me that God was not real,” 7th grader Jordan Wooley told the Katy School Board Monday. “Our teacher had started off saying that the assignment had been giving problems all day. We were asked to take a poll to say whether God is fact, opinion or a myth and she told anyone who said fact or opinion was wrong and God was only a myth.”
The assignment itself, which the teacher handed to several classes that day, gave students a list of statements. The students were instructed to label the statements as being either Fact, Opinion, or Common Assertion. One of the statements was “There is a God.” And apparently too many students were giving her the wrong answer, because she felt the need to give Wooley and her classmates a little lecture beforehand. Get them with the program.
“Another child had asked the teacher if we could try to put what we believe on the paper,” Wooley said, “and she said you can if you want to get it wrong.”
The school district insisted that no harm was intended, defended the teacher as a woman with Christian beliefs, and explained that the assignment was merely meant to encourage critical thinking.
Because nothing says critical thinking like a teacher telling you the answer.
Liberals and socialists have always hated religion, but now they aren’t even bothering to disguise it. They see the endgame at hand, and they are ramping up their efforts accordingly. There’s no place for God in their vision of America. God makes people believe they are special. That they have it inside them to make their dreams come true. That their lives are imbued with a unique purpose and that true joy is only realized when they follow that still, small voice inside them.
Liberals want to tear all that away. You’re not special. You’re just another spoke in the wheel. Only as a collective can we rise. No God means you can’t depend on your faith. So where are you going to turn when things get rough? We have an idea…have you considered the government?
To create this new secular identity for America, they teach our young people that God is just a cultural construct, no different than the titans of Greek mythology. And that paves the way for them to endorse a new system of morality: one where liberal professors and feminists and Democratic politicians fill the roles that used to be occupied by the clergy. Where you give your money to the government instead of the church. Where you learn your beliefs from Hollywood instead of the Bible.
This trend has already cost our country and our culture so much. How far are we going to let America slip before we grab it back?
