ACLU vs God….The ACLU’s (desperate) fight to keep the Bible out of schools

ACLU vs God This story was on the Patriot Post website. It seems that the ACLU is at it again. The National Council on Bible Curriculum In Public Schools has created a course that teaches the Bible as history and literature as an elective in United States high schools. “The NCBCPS course provides students with an entry-level understanding of the Bible’s influence in history, literature and our legal and educational systems, as well as art, archaeology and other aspects of civilization. Appropriately, students use the most widely circulated text in history, the Bible, as their textbook.”

I am sure we can all see the danger here….right. I mean the Bible in the hands of kids (who volunteer to take the course) in public schools. Can you imagine what this might do to the public school system. SHOCKING…….FRIGHTENING!!!! How much of the brainwashing / indoctrination….I mean, education / enlightenment would this erase or at least cause the students to question?

The article says that over 400 school districts in 37 states have implemented the course and over 200,000 kids have taken the course to date. It also says that the course has been deemed “legal” under the constitution and can be used by any school district that wishes to implement it. But then we have the ACLU. Those wacky guys who insist on imposing their views on the rest of us. An interesting point made in the article is how the ACLU choose when and where to file their cases…they only bring their cases in districts where the judiciary is sympathetic with their way of thinking. That tells you something about the confidence they have in the strength of their cases and also about the judges they choose to use to help them implement their ridiculous agenda.

It is time we stand up and put an end to the influence the ACLU has. I heard once that the entire membership of the ACLU was under 10,000 people. If that is true then why do they have the influence they have….they are totally irrelevant. Lets let them know that by making our voices, as Christians, known as often and as loudly as we can!

    Yes, I do see the danger. One, when you see how well theocracy works in Iran, Saudi Arabia, and other areas of the mid-East, you will see the danger as well.

    Two, are you supporting equal rights for Muslims to have the Koran taught in public schools? Equal rights for Jews to have the Talmud taught in public schools?

    In America we believe in equal rights for all. You seem to believe in rights for those who swallow your personal favorite dogma. The ACLU protects me and all Americans from people like you.

      America was founded on CHRISTIAN principles, not muslim or any other belief. In Muslim nations I would expect to be taught the Koran , in China I would expect to be taught about Buddah , In India – Hindu, in America- CHRIST! When in Rome…I have been blessed to be born in America and truely appreciate what America was founded on. No one is forcing any muslim to stop carrying the Koran , but to date – houndreds of Christians are told to not carry their Bible (for it offends to many) What about MY pursuit of happiness? Am I not allowed to have that right? Am I not allowed to have MY own beliefs? For fear it will offend someone else? I’m not asking anyone to believe in what I believe in. I’m not forcing any one to “swollow my personal favorite dogma” To offer a “Christian” course as an elective… for those who want to be reminded of the God our founding fathers believed and prayed to? It’s the least we could do to honor the freedom they gave ALL OF US to believe how we want and to say what we want.
      Let us not get so caught up in “politcal correctness” and “qualities” we forget where we came from and what our founding fathers said in our pledge of allegiance , “One nation under GOD”

    I think that if kids want to learn about the Bible, they should go to sunday school. I don’t see you people trying to get the Torah taught in schools. Or the Koran. If you want religious material taught in public schools, then why aren’t you trying to get them to offer classes that teach kids how to make their own Book of Shadows?

    If one faith is taught, then they ALL need to be taught. This is not a theocracy. If kids want to have a Bible study club after school, fine. But teachers shouldn’t teach religion, not unless EVERY religion is represented.

      This is one of the standard arguments used against teaching the Bible in schools and it is bogus. First, we are talking about an elective class. Not a class that would be required but a class that kids could choose to take. Second, what is taught in the schools is up to the local school boards. I know there are some state mandates involved but beyond that the curriculum is controlled by the local community via the local school board. So, if the local community decides to add a Bible class why is it the business of anyone outside the community? Why does the ACLU start screaming “separation of church and state”? Why do people start screaming “if you teach one, you must teach them all”? These are not valid arguments but in our litigation happy society our local school boards often choose to simply avoid any controversy. This shows us the sad state that our country is now in. And it will only get worse……..Unless we begin to take a stand and correct it. Stand with me!

    What about the part of the Constitution that says they shall make no prohibiting the free exercise thereof when referring to religion. They seem to always want to ignore that part. The only religion in America that comes under fire like this is Christianity.

    People who reject Christ will be in hell, those who receive Jesus Christ as their Savior will not. Teaching the Bible is a great thing, and everyone has the freedom of choice to believe it, or not to believe it’s contents. A lot of subjects are taught in schools, and a lot of them are controversial in content. Subject like evolution, in which most people do not believe in, and it has no real scientific truth presented to support it, yet it is taught anyway, and approved by the ACLU. (Imagine that!}. That is because it excludes God’s presence or existence.
    Sinners hate the thought that sin has a terrifying penalty, and do not want to hear it. But, at the brink deaths door, people tend to examine this closely in their anticipation of death. All of that said, the Bible presents living, and how we can live good lives, including how to make good decisions, problem solving, morale boosters, love, joy, how to identify sin ect.. Why would we not want this valuable source of information? Bible= Brief Instructions Before Leaving Earth Who really wants it silenced? Evil doers……… I’m not perfect by no means, but I know I need an advocate in Christ and that really is the bottom line…

    Wolfeman,

    I agree with the basic arguments that you have made. There are many benefits to studying the Bible and we should seek to avail ourselves of these. But, some of the specific points you made I must disagree with a bit.

    First, you said

    Teaching the Bible is a great thing, and everyone has the freedom of choice to believe it, or not to believe it’s contents.

    Actually, the Bible teaches that we are all slaves to our sin nature and can “choose” to do only things that are in agreement with the sin nature. So, nobody is free to believe the contents of the Bible on their own. Something must happen to allow us to do that. That something is Regeneration and it is an act of the Holy Spirit. Until He regenerates us, we can’t, and wont, do anything that is good, such as believe the Bible.

    You said

    All of that said, the Bible presents living, and how we can live good lives, including how to make good decisions, problem solving, morale boosters, love, joy, how to identify sin ect..

    All of this is true but none of this is the primary reason God gave us the Bible. We have to Bible as God’s written revelation to us so that it can point us to God and our need for Him. It points out that we are sinners in need of a Savior and shows us what God had done to provide us that Savior. We can’t lose sight of that. If we do, then we are not getting what we need from the Bible. I don’t think you were placing less significance on this but I wanted to state it for others who might read these comments later.

    Well, I kind of look at it this way:

    Why, if the ACLU is wrong, and out of touch with “Main Stream America,” do they win so many of their lawsuits?

    Face it. If you sue somebody, and you win, you’re going to claim that you’re right, and the other guy is wrong. Well, if the ACLU wins more often than it loses (and it does), then why do they win so often? I’m sure the opposing attorneys are just as good as the ACLU attorneys. Could it be (gasp), that they’re Constitutionally Correct?

    Remember, if you support the Constitution, you should support the entire document, not just the part with which you agree.
