Christians are not wimps, whiners, and weepers; but that has been an accusation made by atheists when we complain about the attacks against us and our beliefs. Those attacks multiply this time of year. We are told that there is no war–that we are too sensitive and should keep quiet and go back to our hot chocolate huddles in our church basements.
But our critics are wrong. There is a concerted effort to hurt our effectiveness, hinder our efforts, and halt our evangelism. Those attacks usually come from heathens, homosexuals, and humanists.
A public school in Southern California removed all books from the school shelves dealing with Christian themes or written by Christian authors or published by Christian publishers. One of the books was Corrie Ten Boom’s Hiding Place telling of saving Jews during World War II in Germany. Fox News commentator Todd Starnes said it’s “hard to imagine that any school would have a problem with a book about a Christian family that helped Jews escape the Holocaust.”
A California school district has public school students “bowing to the sun god” and participating in “liturgical/ritual religious practices” aimed at having them “become one with god,” according to a brief filed with an appeals court. I wonder what kind of reaction there would be if a teacher reproduced for his or her students a typical Sunday service in a Bible preaching church including the invitation to trust Christ as Savior. Does any sane person believe school leaders, city officials, and the fanatics at the ACLU would defend that? Wonder why? It’s called a “war” against Christians and their God.
High school senior Chase Windebank has been meeting with other students for three years during a free period to discuss their Christian faith, pray, and sing together. Then a Gestapo official at the Colorado Springs school ordered them to stop because it violates the “separation of church and state.” Sieg Heil.
School textbooks across the fruited plain have been expunged removing any positive mention of Christ and Christianity from them. After all we must not distort, deceive, and dull the pliable minds of the state’s children, you know. In the past 20 years there has been a determined effort to replace Christianity with Islam in textbooks. You know, the peaceful religion that specializes in decapitating innocent children and civilians.
The books mention Mohammad as a great and innovative leader but fail to mention that he was a pedophile, thief, and killer who advocated multiple wives and the beating of them. The books never deal with female genital mutilation and honor killings, and never mention that Muslims were into the slave trade hundreds of years before Europeans were. That is because the enemy is in control.
World Net Daily found textbooks used in Florida taught the following: Jesus was a “Palestinian Jew” who grew up in Galilee amidst “militant Zealots”; It was “a few followers” of Jesus who “spread the story” about his resurrection, not that more than 500 people were witnesses to His resurrection; While Islamic Arab warriors “rarely imposed their religion by force,” Christian monks “by contrast,” were busy converting “peoples of Central and Eastern Europe”; Israel is to blame for terrorist attacks by Palestinians because they were “angered over the loss of their territory”; It was because of the “loss of their territory to Israel” that “militant Palestinians responded with a policy of terrorist attacks” rather than because all Muslims have determined to drive Israel into the Sea; “The Quran permitted fair, defensive warfare as jihad, or ‘struggle in the way of God’” and this was how Muhammad and his successors expanded their territory; And while Jesus is “believed” by followers to be the messiah, it’s a fact that “Gabriel continued to send revelations to Muhammad over 22 years.” Are you mad yet?
Some Tennessee school districts use texts that praise Islam but those books have no authors and no publisher. What book doesn’t provide those vital facts? Propaganda pieces do that. Slides with the book give credit to CAIR that was founded by the Muslim Brotherhood as a Muslim terrorist front. CAIR has been identified as an unindicted co-conspirator to raise money for Hamas, the Palestinian jihadist group.
In another Tennessee school, kids were taught about the “glorious” black leader of the Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan and his egregious accusations against George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln. Farrakhan is an unbalanced jerk who said he was taken board a giant UFO filled with thousands of people including the deceased former leader of his group, Elijah Muhammad. Louis did not report seeing Elvis, Judge Parker, Amelia Earhart, or Jimmy Hoffa but stay tuned for his next diatribe. He also assured his followers that he is constantly followed by 1500 smaller planes that protect him from his enemies. Louis is loony.
A public school in Tacoma, Washington permitted a “gay”-straight alliance to put up posters in the halls but when pro-life students wanted to put up their posters, the school refused to permit them. They ended up banning all posters. Ah, yes, educators who believe in diversity, tolerance, fairness, and balance seeking to teach students to think for themselves and defend their sincere beliefs. Hypocritical cowards.
The California State Assembly passed a bill mandating schools permit boys to play on girls’ athletic teams and use the girls’ locker room if they gender identify as girls or vice-versa for girls identifying as boys. The bill’s author is a confessed pervert telling the Los Angeles Times some parents may be uncomfortable with their children sharing bathrooms with students of a different sex, but he said, “It’s also important to protect our children from prejudice.” How about protecting them from sexual predators? Does it take a mental genius to know what unregenerate, uncouth, unrestrained, and uncivil males will do? This is an invitation for disaster.
“There’s no trampling of other people’s rights,” the legislator said. “There’s a recognition that other people have the same rights that you do.” Now, that is perverted thinking. He is more concerned that a young man professing to be a female be permitted to shower with the ladies than safety and modesty. What about the young ladies’ right to privacy? Or protection? And this jerk is making the laws in California. Well, that explains a lot.
The evidence is overwhelming that there is a war against the Master, message, and morals of the Bible and I’m in this war to the end–and God wins.
