"Fighting the world wide web of wicked wrong doers."

Welcome. The aim of this site is simple - to rail against the slow, but steady chipping away of traditonal American values by a host of groups & individuals bent on destroying them.

School Bans History - It's Too God-ish

A Cupertino, California, 5th grade teacher has been barred by his school from giving students documents from American history that refer to God - including the Declaration of Independence.

Steven Williams, the teacher, has filed a lawsuit over the matter. Williams asserts in the lawsuit that since May he has been required to submit all of his lesson plans and supplemental handouts to the principal for approval and that the principal will not permit him to use any that contain references to God or Christianity. Among the materials she has rejected, according to Williams, are excerpts from the Declaration of Independence, George Washington's journal, John Adams' diary, Samuel Adams' "The Rights of the Colonists" and William Penn's "The Frame of Government of Pennsylvania."

If the allegations are true, then this is just one more step in the march by the politically correct crowd, the sectarians & atheists to snuff out religious references from schools. In the process of removing such references, history as taught by our schools is incomplete & fraudulent. Are there plans to cut & paste the word God from historical documents? The courts have previously ruled that religion in context can be used in schools. We'll see where this case goes.

Many believe that the U.S. Constitution has the phrase "separation of church & state" within it. This is totally false. The first amendment reads, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances". That's the extent of it.

It fell upon the infinite wisdom of 9 Supreme Court Justices to redefine the meaning of the Constitution - the infamous "Establishment Clause" ruling. As a result, we are witnessing the zero-tolerance of religion in schools & government buildings by fanatics, whereby "God" is edited out of history books & whereby saying the word "God" by a student at a high school commencement is punishable. Yet these same fanatics are quick to hand out children's books on lesbianism & homosexuality to 1st graders. This country has Christian roots & it galls the sectarians & they will do their best to remove it.

Merry Chris...er...Merry Winter Solstice.

Removed only from government sponsered institutions, organizations or publications. There is total freedom in private sector.

Since there is a redesigning money ongoing at the moment, why not some Bills with "In Allah We Trust" or "Satan Rules" - we could allocate these according to population demographics to make it fair. Not a good idea is it? So let's just keep religion totally out of government as it should be.

Separation of church and state is just a GOOD idea. While some have definitely taken it a bit too far, overall it's the right thing to do. The government should not be in the business of mandating religion or promoting one religion over another (or over atheism or agnosticism). A lot of the problems in America today are due to the socalled "Religious Right" or "Evangelical Christians" wanting to force their ideas on everyone. They have now elected an American president, thanks to the likes of people like Karl Rove and Jerry Falwell. A very scary situation indeed.
