Church and State: What was
September 07, 2010
All of us who have been educated
in our public schools over the past 50 plus years and present
day,have been taught the separation of church and state. It has
been driven home that there is no common relationship between
the two. Now in the current venue of public debate, the schism
between religions has become wider. In the Village Square Judo-Christian
religions are being viewed in even more disparaging terms.
This continuing harangued by the left leaning progressives who
fear truth needs to be pushed back to reestablish our true early
American history. I believe as example, Mr. Glenn Beck representing
the main stream conservative revitalization efforts, has placed
the subject front and center for Americans to consider.
I am compelled to participate in a small way. Following is a
video, which I have submitted to several of Ketchikan Gateway
School board members. I indicated and do so here, that there
is no curriculum bent by this submission. The point being made
is that "Yes, church and state did exist in this country
and did so for over 100 plus years. Yes, our founders were religious
even the agnostics among our forefathers, recognized that our
human belief in a power greater than ourselves gave us the moral
compass to forge through life.
What you will see in this video is history not taught in our
public schools. Should it be? From my perspective a resounding
"Yes !". For religious promotion? absolutely not ,
The necessity of truth and the science of history must be accurate,
how else are our young citizens to draw conclusions when key
elements of history are purposely rejected.
