Picture this. You’re driving down the highway with your nine-year-old son. You’re in the middle lane. On your right, one behind the other, are two buses. The bus in front is painted white. The bus behind is painted yellow. The bus in front has its windows painted over. The bus behind does not. Your son […]
We Christians immediately tend to squirm when the word indoctrination is associated with teaching our faith. Why should we do otherwise? It is a term that instantly conjures up thoughts about such things as the Kool-Aid of Reverend Jim Jones, or David Koresh and the Branch Davidians of Waco. After all, effective indoctrination holds the […]
Although it is never objectively accurate to say that a certain time period was “the good old days,” there are many positive values that our society has lost in the past 150 years. One of the most tragic of these losses was the disintegration of the family culture, and especially multi-generational connections and legacies. Because […]
In America’s current economic state, many propose cutting the budget. But when you get down to talking of cutting specific programs such as Medicare, Social Security or government education people start to balk. Most people are not willing to give up a government program that they benefit from, but ultimately we will have to give […]
The statistics are staggering, 80% to 85% of young people leave the Church, never to return. As evolution, humanism and atheism continue to infiltrate our schools, theaters, magazines and television, our young people are faced with hard questions. If we send our children out into the world, unequipped to answer the hard questions and lacking […]
Michael Newdow lost the case to remove Christian posters, banners, and the like from a public school in California, thanks to a judge that understands (at least, somewhat) that America’s civil government has historically openly referenced the God of Christianity. Gary DeMar predicts what the secularists next strategy will be to thwart this religious victory in the civil arena.
A federal district judge in California has ruled against a public school that sought to force a teacher to take down his classroom banners. This issue and the potential consequences are discussed in today’s show.
The textbooks for all public schools hinge on the choices of the school board of Texas. Now with seven Christian members, this school board is confronted with liberals that object to the Christian record found in American history. Gary reviews the historical record to show what is the truthful conclusion that should be taken with America’s history textbooks.
Public education has textbooks riddled with factual errors, revisionist history, and biased views of science. Some Christians are challenging the status quo, and the liberals are retaliating. Are conservatives in a position to make right the wrongs in these textbooks, and how will the opposition respond? Gary shares his insights.
In 1861, a small Presbyterian denomination known as the Covenanters, founded in 1809 in Western Pennsylvania, created a petition that pointed out that the Constitution made no reference to Jesus Christ and the law of God. “The petition received initial support from Senator Charles Sumner, and in 1862 two Covenanter ministers presented the document to […]
In a letter sent to the nation’s school principals, the U.S. Department of Education has announced that, on September 8, at 12 noon Eastern Daylight Time, President Barack Obama “will deliver a national address to the students of America.” The letter “encourages students of all ages, teachers, and administrators to participate in this historic moment by watching the president deliver the address, which will be broadcast on the White House website.”
Parents: Be sure you home school for the right reason. Just because the public schools have failed spiritually, morally, and academically is only a minor part of the reason. God desires that you do it. In addition, only in the loving, dedicated environment of a home will the great leaders (as youths) be nurtured; those who’ll be re-supplying a world devoid of leaders.
