America's Judeo Christian Heritage

School officials jump back in protest if one even suggests limiting the teaching of "religious beliefs" to school children.  They vehemently insist that one could not possibly teach Islam without teaching the religious beliefs in depth.  Yet, our founding fathers were Christian and everything possible is done to restrict, limit and eradicate those beliefs from our textbooks about America.  "SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE!"  Why do teachers INSIST on teaching Islamic beliefs to the point of indoctrination but strip all faith away from our own culture?  In Houghton Mifflin's "Modern World History, Patterns of Interaction," our history is rewritten as "enlightenment."  When our founding fathers are described, they are said to have been influenced by "enlightenment" or "the Age of Reason" (pg 171)  "Enlightenment -  an 18th century European movement in which thinkers attempted to apply the principles of reason and the scientific method to all aspects of society."  This is what our Constitution is taught to our children as based upon.

Did you know that George Washington is quoted as saying, "Above all, teach the religion of Jesus Christ" when addressing the importance of public schools?  The textbook states,

"Patrick Henry , John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, these leaders used Enlightenment ideas to justify independence." 

(gasp)  See below what these founding fathers said about Christianity and the "Age of Reason".  Why is there barely any mention of our own rich heritage of Christianity?  Modern secularists would state it's not necessary for us to understand the beliefs of our forefathers, so why is it so imperative that we understand Islam's? 

Patrick Henry"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faith have been afforded asylum, prosperity and freedom of worship here."   "The Bible is worth all other books which have ever been printed."

John Adams:  "We have appointed a continental fast.  Millions will be upon their knees at once before their great Creator, imploring His forgiveness and blessing; His smiles on American councils and arms."

John Adams Regarding the Age of Reason:  "The Christian religion is, above all the religions that ever prevailed or existed in ancient or modern times, the religion of wisdom, virtue, equity and humanity, let the Blackguard [scoundrel, rogue] Paine say what he will."  and again later to John Paine: "The people of New England, if you will allow me to use a Scripture phrase, are fast returning to their first love.  Will you excite among them the spirit of angry controversy at a time when they are hastening to amity and peace?  I am told that some of our newspapers have announced your intention to publish an additional pamphlet upon the principles of your Age of Reason.  Do you think that your pen, or the pen of any other man, can unchristianize the mass of our citizens, or have you hopes of converting a few of them to assist you in so bad a cause?"

Benjamin Franklin: History will also afford frequent opportunities of showing the necessity of a public religion...and the excellency of the Christian religion above all others.

John Quincy Adams:  "So great is my veneration for the Bible that the earlier my children begin to read it the more confident will be my hope that they will prove useful citizens of their country and respectable members of society.  I have for many years made it a practice to read through the Bible once every year."

U.S. Grant: "The Bible is the sheet-anchor of our liberties."

Andrew Jackson: "That book, sir, is the rock on which our republic rests."

Robert E. Lee:  "In all my perplexities and distresses, the Bible has never failed to give me light and strength."

Abraham Lincoln:  "I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man.  All the good from the Saviour of the world is communicated to us through this book."

Samuel Adams, "Father of the American Revolution" (to Britain) "We again make our solemn appeal to the God of heaven to decide between you and us.  And we pray that, in the doubtful scale of battle, we may be successful as we have justice on our side, and that the merciful Saviour of the world may forgive our oppressors."

George Washington:  "You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ.  Congress will do everything they can to assist you in this wise intention."

Even the Liberty Bell has a Bible verse engraved upon it!  "Proclaim liberty throughout the land unto all the inhabitants thereof. LEVITICUS 25:10"

More Quotes

Original Intent by David Barton has more than 500 pages crammed with quotes and sources, proving our nation was BUILT on Christianity.  But Houghton Mifflin would rewrite our heritage to credit Enlightenment.  Why?  And why is our Education Dept. determined to promote anything and everything apart from Christ?  Why must our children participate in Islamic beliefs while denying the truth of our own nation?

Every credentialed historian and every previous history book should be up in arms in protest of Houghton Mifflin's attempt to rewrite history.  If this textbook is an example of the license that can be taken by historians, it completely degrades all credibility of history books and the scholars that studied them.  If California stands behind such a biased half-truth "textbook," then we must doubt everything we've been taught in American history, and the credentials of these elite historians are worthless.

I liked the following from WND:

"In his speeches against tyranny, Patrick Henry said he believed God governed the affairs of men and would intervene on behalf of the colonies. He advocated a federal government with internal checks and balances with a written Bill of Rights that would protect the freedom of each man before God.

Henry believed in absolute morality. He taught "the eternal difference between right and wrong does not fluctuate." (Needless to say, Bill Clinton is the antithesis of Patrick Henry.)

Patrick Henry believed in the authority of the Bible. He held that "eternal law was reflected in nature and written in the Bible" as the surest foundation of social and political life. He also believed, as does President Bush, that authority comes from God.

We do not have Patrick Henrys leading us today because Christians have been careless. Even though we say "God Bless America" with our lips, we often reject God by our actions. We have elected men and women who have ousted prayer from our schools. We have elected men and women who adhere to the "right" to abort unborn babies. We have elected men and women who uphold homosexual lifestyles that God calls abomination.

We must become prudent with our votes, supporting only candidates who like Patrick Henry adhere to biblical values. It's time to get serious. We must pray that God will again send us leaders like Patrick Henry who will fearlessly hold God's hand while leading this nation. And we must be willing to wholeheartedly support them.

God Bless America!"  -R. Jerry Falwell
