Can you still say our children are not being indoctrinated in school?

It is being reported in a seventh grade girl in Kay Texas was forced by her teacher to deny that God is real or fail.

Are you kidding me?

Abraham Lincoln is quoted as saying “The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next”.

Now you see how important it is to take control of our schools back from those who wish to destroy our American values which built this country into the greatest in the world.

I thought religion is not supposed to be spoken about in public schools.  Apparently atheism can be taught.  Let’s see what the ACLU does about this.

The student testified at a school board meeting about an assignment in her reading class that she believes and I think any common sense person would agree has to do with her teacher attempting to indoctrinate her into atheism or at least make some of the students deny their religious beliefs.

The student was quoted in the article speaking to the school board saying:

“Today I was given an assignment in school that questioned my faith and told me that God was not real. 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.”

When the students objected she said her teacher: “started telling kids they were completely wrong and that when kids argued we were told we would get in trouble. When I tried to argue, she told me to prove it, and I tried to reference things such as the Bible and stories I have read before from people who have died and went to heaven but came back and told their stories, and she told me both were just things people were doing to get attention”.

I say this often, what in the heck is going on in our schools today?  Who is letting these types of people come in contact with our children?

Apparently another student asked the teacher if they could put what they believe in the paper, and she said they could but if they did they would fail the assignment.

The student’s mother contacted the school principal and was told they would investigate the claim.  The school board also said they would “look into it”.

How long are so many people going to let this stand?

I will leave you with another quotes attributed to President Abraham Lincoln and is a simplification of an actual quote from a speech by Lincoln titled ""The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions", known as the Lyceum Address based on the location of its giving.

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

It is past time to start fighting to regain America values, morals, ethics and our children.
