    Dear Concerned Student:

    I am not allowed in schools




    How did this get started?...


    Let's see,
    I think it started when Madeline Murray O'Hare complained
    She didn't want any prayer in our schools.

    And we said, OK.


    someone said you better not:
    Read the Bible in school;
    the Bible that says
    "thou shalt not kill,
    Thou shalt not steal,
    And love your neighbors as yourself,"

    And we said, OK...


    Dr. Benjamin Spock said
    We shouldn't spank our children
    When they misbehaved
    Because their little personalities
    Would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem.

    And we said,
    An expert should know what he's talking about
    So we won't spank them anymore..


    Then someone said
    Teachers and principals better not
    Discipline our children when they misbehave.
    And the school administrators said
    No faculty member in this school
    Better touch a student when they misbehave
    Because we don't want any bad publicity,
    And we surely don't want to be sued.

    And we accepted their reasoning...


    Then someone said,
    let's let our daughters have abortions if they want,
    And they won't even have to tell their parents.

    And we said, that's a grand idea.


    Then some wise school board member said,
    Since boys will be boys
    And they're going to do it anyway,
    let's give our sons all the condoms they want,
    So they can have all the fun they desire,
    And we won't have to tell their parents they got them at school.

    And we said, that's another great idea...


    Then some of our top elected officials said
    It doesn't matter what we do in private as long as we do our jobs.

    And we said,
    It doesn't matter what anybody,
    including the President,
    Does in private as long as we have jobs and the economy is good....


    And someone else took that appreciation a step further
    And published pictures of nude children
    And then stepped further still by
    Making them available on the Internet.

    And we said, everyone's entitled to free speech....


    And the entertainment industry said,
    let's make TV shows and movies that promote
    Profanity, violence and illicit sex...
    And let's record music that encourages
    Rape, drugs, murder, suicide, and satanic themes...

    And we said,
    it's just entertainment
    And it has no adverse effect
    And nobody takes it seriously anyway,
    So go right ahead.


    Now we're asking ourselves
    Why our children have no conscience,

    Why they don't know right from wrong,
    And why it doesn't bother them to
    Kill strangers, classmates or even themselves.


    If we thought about it long and hard enough,
    We could figure it out.
    I'm sure it has a great deal to do with...



    No one should complain about the bad shape
    America is in.
    No one should complain about the sad state of many of the nations of this world today.

    Why is it our children can not read a Bible in school, but can in Prison.
  2. :goodpost:

    Thank you, Tom!
  3. Funny how we spend our lives pushing God away, then shake our fists at Him for not intervening when things go bad.
  4. Amen

    That is a post and a half!! I know a few people myself who should read that!!

    Thank you!
  5. Freedom07,

    I read this in a forwarded email. It is amazing that we won't allow God in schools, but then blame God for not protecting!

    I have been blessed in that my children pre-k through college have always attended Christian schools. None of them know a world of not being able to pray in school. I may be poor, but I am glad we sacrificed to provide a godly education for my children.
