Before 1963, our founding fathers had intended that our schools would be the bastions of teaching our children moral and ethical conduct. Why, heaven knows that prayers were allowed, even encouraged, in school, the Ten Commandments were even taught. If you want to proof that statement, then go back and check out the UNREVISED history of the United States. I am a firm believer that our Creator gave us free will and the rewards or consequences of our decisions right or wrong. I said that so that you would know where I’m coming from in this following article.
A 68 year grandmother named Karen Klein of Greece, New York, is a bus monitor on the local school systems buses, and it seems that four 13 year old boys took it upon themselves to verbally assault this poor woman mercilessly. The woman was driven to tears, and the four bullies involved have not publically apologized to her. Out of sympathy of America’s great heart, Karen received more than $500,000. This country is still the greatest country in the world bar none. These boys deserved a serious whuppin’. Not a”time out”, not a slap on the wrist, but a serious, old-fashioned whuppin’.
Here’s my take on why I think we have gotten to this point with our children. In 1963, an Atheist named Madeline Murray O’Hare set out to get prayer banished from her son’s school. Eventually, with the help of activist judges on the Supreme Court of 1963, she succeeded in getting prayer banned from ALL public schools. Strike one! In the late 70’s, the government decided that parents really didn’t know how to discipline their children, so they wrote new laws that said basically if you spanked your child you were committing ASSAULT. Your children could now call the law on you and not only have you incarcerated, but Child Protective Services could come to your home and manage your family for you. Strike two. The third action that the government took was to allow children to “divorce” their parents if the children didn’t like being told NO! Child “emancipation” enacted by the courts. Strike three!

Children were given “rights” by the courts and SOCIALIST PROGRESSIVE lawyers and “social workers’ with too much time on their hands and an OBSESSION to control your life. God says in His word ( for you unbelievers, don’t worry about it) “he who spares the rod HATES his son (or daughter).” Children are to be disciplined because unless they are taught control they will succumb to rebellion very time. It’s human nature! Dr. Spock, the famous baby doctor, once wrote a book that discouraged disciplining children. Did you know that his son committed suicide? Some think that even children know that discipline is shown because you love them.
Atheists and “shady” religious freedom organizations have steadily worked to erase God and HIS presence from American culture. So what has been the result? How about Columbine, and a sudden rash of school shootings across the United States? How about the explosion of American kids getting into killer gangs? How “flash mobs” of mostly young people robbing from merchants across our country? Why do some of our youth think nothing of taking a life without a thought?
Why is there so much teenage pregnancy and an epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases affecting younger and younger children? Why do we allow pornagraphy in all its forms in our school and society? To Larry Flint, your pornography says nothing but perversion sir! Nothing more, nothing less! Why don’t our children have any respect for their own parents, let alone their elders? Refer back to strikes 1, 2 & 3! Why do our children committ suicide as frequently as they do? Why are there so many different and deadly drugs avaiable to our kids at younger and younger ages?
I heard a lady on television being interviewed outside a high school somewhere right after one of these shootings. The woman looked at the camera and said “where was God in all this”? I yelled at the TV, “You kicked him out of schools, remember?!” Karen Klein is only the latest example of what has happened to America because we have let a bunch of immoral bureaucrats tell us how we are going to run our families and our schools. You know why this generation of children is called the “lost generation”? It’s because we, adults, have allowed them to lose their moral compass. If I had been one of those boys back in my youth, my mother would have beat my behind until I couldn’t walk, and I would have still been grounded 46 years later. My mom and dad were NOT going to stand for their children being disrespectful to anybody. My wife’s parents were the same way. God didn’t walk away from us….we walked away from Him as a nation. We are now paying the price for that decision. Militant gays shoving their intolerance in everyone’s face. Atheists’ challenge anything and everything that our country was founded on, and winning by soliciting SOCIALIST PROGRESSIVE activist judges. Our Constitution has been ignored and stomped on by these same people.

I find it heartwarming that Karen Klein has been taken care of, but unless we do something as Americans to return to our cultural roots and our faith this country is going to continue to suffer the consequence of bad decisions. Remember our Constitution on July 4th and all it has given you. Oh, by the way, children have only the “privileges” given to them by their parents, their “rights” don’t start until they can pay their own way upon turning 18. Happy Independence Day!
