To say that our society has been radically revolutionized by such crinkled and crosseyed concepts is to state it fairly. One of the confessed goals of secular humanism, according to the dastardly declaration they style "manifesto," is: "The separation of church and state and the separation of ideology and state" while conniving for a "new world order" in which "national sovereignty" is sacrificed for the structuring of a "oneworld government." Remember that humanism is classified by the Government and by themselves as a religion. At the American Humanist Awards ceremony they boasted that they have "conquered the entire public school system for Humanism."
If the reader will pause to reflect a moment, it will not be difficult to discover the incredible success that humanists have had in implementation of their dream. "Values Clarification" is practiced in many public school systems whereby "educators now perceive their job to be the complete 'resocialization' of the child-the complete reshaping of his values, beliefs, and morals" (Robert Webber, Secular Humanism, p. 83).
Test scores from school children continue dipping, the National Education Association cries for more money, and all the while the goal of the NEA and Federal Government is to revolutionize the child's sense of morality and national pride. Public education is fast evolving from an instructor in basic learning skill, to a humanist indoctrination project.
Sex Education has obtruded its way into public education in spite of the urgent protest by parents. The New York City school board stepped further than that as they voted to dispense free condoms to their 260,000 H.S. students-without parental consent (Washington Education Report, Tim LaHaye, March '91, p. 4). Of course, every Christian knows that such topics involved in this are parental responsibility, not public. It seems that the only observable effects that sex education by schools has on youngsters is to heighten curiosity into exploration.
Evolution is the foundation of American education and is the contraband smuggled to your child in grade school. This is partly because of the foolish and daffy thinking whereby the government now sees its task as freeing persons from religion, not maintaining a persons freedom to practice it. Let the reader also recall that school sponsored prayer, reading or displaying the Bible, or mentioning God's name is "unconstitutional." An 11yearold girl, a student in a talented program, was assigned to write on the topic of "Power." She wrote on the "Power of God." The teacher forbade her from reading the report publicly and humiliated the girl before her peers (Wash. Ed. Report, p. 4).
The popular but disgraceful humanistic maladies can be verified endlessly as the godless mobs wish to disfranchise and burglarize the American populace of any semblance of God. It is not a time for increased TV viewing, funny paper pondering, and general lollygagging in our pleasurefilled lives. Nor is it the hour to teach, somewhat as Ezekiel puts it, "A sissified gospel" of feelgoodism which refuses to attack the problems at hand. By so doing, the god of this wicked world is blinding the eyes of our understanding from the eternal issues which will determine the course of our children's world
