Parents Trying To Force A Christian School To Accept Their Child. Just 1 Problem…

Because a private San Diego Christian school refuses to tolerate homosexuality, threats of lawsuits from a lesbian couple that believes that getting their way should trump the school’s religious principles are filling the air.

Mt. Erie Christian Academy, which takes not one nickel of support from the government, told two women the child they are raising could not attend kindergarten at the school because the women’s lifestyle conflicted with school rules.

The school’s handbook is very clear.

“On those occasions in which the atmosphere or conduct within a particular home is counter to or in opposition to the biblical lifestyle that the school teaches, the school reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission of an applicant or to discontinue enrollment of a student,” the handbook said.

The handbook went on to be quite specific.

“This includes, but is not necessarily limited to, living in, condoning or supporting sexual immorality; practicing homosexual lifestyle or alternative gender identity; promoting such practices; or otherwise having the inability to support the moral principles of the school (Leviticus 20:13a; Romans 1:21-27; Matthew 19:4-6; I Corinthians 6:9-20),” the handbook read.

Despite this, the couple insists they have a right to get their way and force the school to admit the girl. They are mulling a lawsuit, and summoning the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups to support them.

San Diego attorney Eugene Iredale has already fired a volley that says this case is not about one school and one child, but the wider issue of the free exercise of religion in America.

“If you have a religion that believed in human sacrifice or amputation of the arm or the hand for theft, would we permit that in the interest of permitting the free practice of one’s religion? I don’t think so, and one could argue that psychologically… this is as devastating to the little 5-year-old girl as some of those other vicious practices,” he said.

The school has offered limited comment; but in a message to parents, it signaled its intention to resist.

“We stand firmly behind our board’s decision and ask that you support us through this time. We may receive some backlash from those who do not respect our Biblical perspective, however we will continue to provide a Christian education,” the message said.

Liberals Are Losing Their Minds Over 5 Words This High School Principal Wrote In A Letter

The war to preserve Christian faith in American society has another battleground. After a high school principal left an uplifting message to his students, he immediately came under attack in yet another lawsuit aimed at stamping out traces of Christianity in the public sphere.

Bossier, City, La. Principal, Jason Rowland, ended a statement on the school’s website writing, “The Future Starts Today – May God Bless You All.” The high school also supports a student-led chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) by allowing them to set up prayer boxes in the school.

It was all too much for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Louisiana. The ACLU wants the boxes with their “Christina symbols” removed and Rowland suitably punished. The Bossier Parish school board will discuss the complaint on Thursday.

In the meantime, supporters of the school are fighting back.

“In my 15 years of life, I have never, EVER, been told that freedom of religion was against the law,” said teen-ager Preston Wyatt on YouTube, urging the school’s supporters to rally at #istandwithAHS and #godsnotdead. “To all of my friends at Airline…I am praying for God’s mercy to prevail during this rough time that y’all have been struck with. Don’t let someone so senseless tell you that you have no place on acknowledging your religion. Just because they do not believe in it does not mean you shouldn’t either.”

Louisiana State Rep. Mike Johnson, R-Bossier City, said the ACLU has its facts wrong, as well as its intentions. The prayer boxes should be allowed because they are a student-driven idea. All student groups have equal access to displays at the school, he said. He also pointed out that students have free speech rights.

“This is typical of the ACLU,” he said. “They’re on a seek-and-destroy mission for all things religious. I hope the school will stand its ground.”

Freedom Guard, a non-profit public interest law firm, has also offered free legal defense to Airline High School, according to KSLA.

Freedom Guard successfully defended the Bossier schools in a lawsuit challenging a nativity display several years ago, Johnson said.

Johnson defended Rowland’s use of the phrase “God bless” as an “an innocuous reference to our religious heritage” much like the mention of God in the Pledge of Allegiance.

“Just because an activist organization in New Orleans trolls the Internet in search of something to be offended by does not mean than any constitutional line has been crossed here or that any behavior should be modified,” Johnson said.

Flying Is About To Become Much More Of A Hassle For Residents Of These 4 States

Image for representational purposes only.

Residents of four states and one American territory may find getting through security checkpoints at US airports more challenging if the Department of Homeland Security goes forward with its plan to enforce REAL ID requirements in 2016.

Under the provisions of the REAL ID Act passed in 2005 in response to the 9/11 Commission’s findings, states are required to meet certain federal standards with their driver’s licenses in order for them to be a valid form of identification for airline travel. If drivers licenses do not meet those standards, travelers must provide a second form of ID: passport, birth certificate, etc. to verify their identify.

So far, 46 states have implemented the requirements of the REAL ID Act; however, New York, New Hampshire, Minnesota, Louisiana, and American Samoa have not. 

States that have refused to implement the REAL ID Act requirements cite privacy and sovereignty concerns.

New Hampshire’s Concord-Monitor reports: “Under REAL ID, states must share all license data including digital photos, into a single database, raising concerns that the licenses would effectively become a national ID card.” A bill to implement the law’s requirements was killed in committee last year. 

In Louisiana, Gov. Bobby Jindal veto a bill to implement REAL ID last year, as well. “The Eagle Form, the Louisiana Family Forum and the Tea Party of Louisiana have asked for a veto due to concerns about whether it will compromise Louisiana’s sovereignty over what is fundamentally a state method of identification,” the governor said in his veto message.

According to the Times-Picayune, “Marjorie Esman, executive director of the ACLU and ACLU Foundation of Louisiana, joined forces with the Tea Party and other groups to oppose the 2014 legislation to implement the Real ID law in Louisiana.”

“‘REAL ID creates a national ID card that has nothing to do with the ability to drive and everything to do with government snooping on innocent people,’ Esman said in an email… ‘We don’t need that, and never have. If it were so essential to national security, it would have been enforced years ago.’”

Some of the requirements for a REAL ID card include:

  • Full legal name
  • Signature
  • Date of birth
  • Gender
  • Unique, identifying number
  • Principal residence address
  • Front-facing photograph of the applicant.

The cards must also include specific security features intended to prevent fraud or duplication, and must present data in a common, machine-readable format (bar codes, smart card technology, etc.).

Gay Couples Are Adding Insult To Injury By Making THIS Demand To Kim Davis

Even though Kentucky’s governor says that the marriage licenses issued through Kim Davis’ office are valid, the county clerk who stood up for her principles is facing a new round of legal attacks from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

According to legal papers, the ACLU wants Kim Davis to abandon her principles and re-issue the licenses in a format she won’t accept, or have a federal judge appoint someone else to take over the Rowan County clerk’s office. The ACLU says that the new licenses — issued to all couples — bring “humiliation and stigma” to gay couples.

Davis is fighting back.

“Kim Davis has made a good-faith effort to comply with the court’s order and has not prevented the issuance of marriage licenses by Deputy Clerks,” said Mat Staver, Davis’ attorney and founder of the Liberty Counsel law firm that represents her. “The ACLU’s motion to again hold Kim Davis in contempt reveals that their interest is not the license but rather a marriage license bearing the name of Kim Davis. They want her scalp to hang on the wall as a trophy.”

When Davis returned to work, she changed the format for marriage licenses. The new licenses say they are issued “pursuant to federal court order” instead of by the clerk’s authority. Davis said this accommodation preserved her conscience while also granting licenses to same-sex couples.

Staver said that in addition to the Governor’s statement that the licenses as changed are valid, David Bunning, the judge who ordered Davis to jail earlier this month, said licenses issued while Davis was in jail and issued without her name are also valid.

Davis says the controversy in which she has found herself does not hurt her.

“What people say about me does not define who I am. That’s everybody’s opinion and that’s everybody’s right,” Davis said, adding that she’s been “called Hitler, I’ve been called [a] hypocrite, I’ve been called a homophobe.”

“I’ve been called things and names that I didn’t even say when I was in the world. Those names don’t hurt me,” Davis said. “What probably hurts me the worst is when someone tells me that my God does not love me or that my God is not happy with me, that I am a hypocrite of a Christian.”

The Islamic Mosqueing Of Public Schools In America

Schools in Tennessee are attempting to force students to declare Allah to be the supreme god.

Maury County parents are expressing their outrage against a textbook’s recounting of Muhammad being a prophet inspired by Allah.

Brandee Porterfield has expressed her anger toward that aspect of the textbook, saying:

I have (a) big problem with that. From a historical point of view, that’s a lot of history these kids are missing. … Also, for them to spend three weeks on Islam after having skipped Christianity, it seems to be that they are making a choice about which religion to discuss.

A Christian pastor in Tennessee has gotten so upset at the Islamic indoctrination in public schools that he is now telling Christian students to fail any class that teaches Islam and not go to the side of the devil:

Pastor Greg Locke of Global Vision Bible Church said church families were concerned and upset about middle school students being taught “a half-page of watered down Christianity”–and 28 pages of Islamic curriculum–in sixth grade.

“We have a number of our families at our church that are really upset and up and arms over all of this new Islamic indoctrination in our public school system,” Locke said. “That is nothing more than absolute brainwashing of religion, and we’re not going to stand for it.”

Wilson County Schools Director Donna Wright called Locke’s claims blatantly false and claimed that his video was made to intentionally incite parents and the community.

“No one in any Wilson County School is teaching any indoctrination of Islam or of any world religion for that matter,” Wright said. “To imply or state otherwise shows a lack of knowledge about the standards used in our schools.”

Instead of backing down, Locke doubled down and said that the school was equating all gods with the one true God.

“It’s straight up indoctrination – I’m not backing off that,” he said Friday.

There is nothing more frustrating for one who is in a system of indoctrination (public schools and colleges) than people trying to warn those outside about what is going on inside while the people take no heed.

These young people are being dropped off by their parents at the school gate to be illegally indoctrinated by the federal government through the violation of the 10th Amendment. What is even worse is that so many of these parents profess to be Christians, conservatives and/or patriots, and yet throw their kids into the shark-infested waters of foreign indoctrination (Proverbs 22:6). They simply hold the truth in unrighteousness (Romans 1:18). Hypocrites.

Well, there comes a time, though I hate to say it, when I have to say “I told you so” (Deuteronomy 28:32).

previously warned about Islamic indoctrination in public schools, in August 2012. I wrote:

If you thought the U.N. International Baccalaureate and federal No Child Left Behind educational schemes were bad enough, you might want to look a little deeper.

In light of the 9/11 attacks, you would think the current administration would use a little prudence if they were sincerely concerned about a Muslim threat. When Obama took his oath of office, he instead defied America in numerous ways. He has given $1.5 billion to Muslim-led Egypt in foreign aid, shortly after the Muslim Brotherhood declared war on the United States. This is the same man that said America is “no longer a Christian nation,” followed by a reference that America may be described as a Muslim nation.

Studies have shown over 500 historical errors in public school textbooks giving an Islamic slant to our youth.

As a result, our youth are subject to the following teachings and practices:

How did this happen? The ACLU, the American Muslim Council, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and the Clinton administration joined together to create an environment that opened the door to Muslim teaching, while attacking anyone who speaks of the Christian religion in public schools.

Hence, you see the courts backing the Muslim agenda when, for example, a school in California is teaching their students a three-week course that essentially requires them to become a Muslim for that period of time!

This also very well explains why my ministry has been under incessant attack for bringing a moral and constitutional message to public schools.

To prove my point, a representative from the American Muslim Council, Abdul Rahman Al-Amoudi, today serves a 23-year prison sentence for being one of the top fundraisers of al-Qaida in the U.S.

In addition, there are over 225 Muslim schools in the U.S. and around 50,000 children who are being taught to, and I quote Brigitte Gabriel with ACT! For America, “foster an environment of hate, loathing and resentment toward Western culture, Christians, Jews, Shiites, secular Muslims and non-Muslims.”

Saudis have taken advantage of the Title VI program that our government implemented after World War II for the education of young Americans about foreign cultures and languages.

They are using their riches from oil to pump millions of dollars into our universities to appoint Arab professors in departments such as political science, Middle East studies, etc. who are brainwashing our students with an anti-American point of view. They teach that we are the problem; that our foreign policy is the problem; and that our wealth, enlightenment and success are oppressing the rest of the world.

This explains why Obama is apologizing to other nations. This is why he is targeting the youth vote after this anti-American curriculum has snuck its way into our schools. This is also why the communist ACLU organization quickly represents Muslims while refusing to defend Christians who practice their faith in public schools.

America, why is this happening? In a nation that was founded on Christian principles, whose students were nurtured in a biblical worldview, could it be that the Christians became apathetic, went to sleep and allowed this radical agenda to creep in unnoticed by the public at large? (Read Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28.)
