 Philosophy and Pluralism:
Supreme Court Grounds for a Lawsuit

Arguments to be filed by Jen Shroder
Revised 7/20/04 Permission given to repost at will

A larger disclosure of the infamous Thomas Jefferson letter as defining the separating wall between church and state reveals Jefferson's concern for the perseverence of faith:

"Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man & his god, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"

And yet, philosophy classes, rampant with anti-God rhetoric, are given free rein and are now part of the required curriculum and teaching requirements for public schools.

A clip from Stanford University Philosophy Encyclopedia states:

"One obvious response to religious diversity is to maintain that since there exists no divine reality since the referent in all religious truth claims related to the divine is nonexistent all such claims are false." Another clip claims that unless Christians can prove their faith, they must relinquish it and pluralism can "significantly precipitate belief abandonment."

By applying the rule of law of the wall of separation between church and state, I charge that ALL PLURALISM AND PHILOSOPHY CLASSES that question, dispel and debate the merits of Christianity, God and all religious beliefs in our public schools MUST CEASE AND DESIST IMMEDIATELY as they are in complete violation of "separation of church and state."

Public education has established its own "religion", its own pluralist philosophical belief system combative of faith. Like a machine, public education demands our children learn this new religion, compelled to attend schools that are part of a tyrannical fascist system. Parents are sensing the duplicity and are increasingly outraged.

The infamous Supreme Court case, so often quoted to eradicate all mention of Christian faith, MUST ALSO be applied to the reprogramming and criticism of religious belief so rampant in our universities, colleges and k-12 curriculum. As outlined in the opinion of Justice Black:

U.S. Supreme Court Case
Everson v. Board of Education of Ewing TP., 330 U.S. 1 (1947)

"Catholics found themselves hounded and proscribed because of their faith; Quakers who followed their conscience went to jail; Baptists were peculiarly obnoxious to certain dominant Protestant sects; men and women of varied faiths who happened to be in a minority in a particular locality were persecuted because they steadfastly persisted in worshipping God only as their own consciences dictated. And all of these dissenters were compelled to pay tithes and taxes to support government-sponsored churches whose ministers preached inflammatory sermons designed to strengthen and consolidate the established faith by generating a burning hatred against dissenters."

[Public school today]

"These practices became so commonplace as to shock the freedom-loving colonials into a feeling of abhorrence."

[Many parents today]

"The imposition of taxes to pay ministers' salaries and to build and maintain churches and church property aroused their indignation."

[As do payment of teachers to espouse doubt in faith.]

"The people [of Virginia], as elsewhere, reached the conviction that individual religious liberty could be achieved best under a government which was stripped of all power to tax, to support, or otherwise to assist any or all religions, or to interfere with the beliefs of any religious individual or group."

[Public education CANNOT fund or support anti-God rhetoric. Philosophy classes are rampant with religious-sounding books and ideas solely attacking belief].

"Thomas Jefferson and James Madison led the fight against this tax. Madison wrote his great Memorial and Remonstrance against the law. In it, he eloquently argued that a true religion did not need the support of law; that no person, either believer or non-believer, should be taxed to support a religious institution of any kind; that the best interest of a society required that the minds of men always be wholly free; and that cruel persecutions were the inevitable result of government-established religions."

Justice Black quoted the preamble to the 'Virginia Bill for Religious Liberty' by Jefferson:

"Almighty God hath created the mind free; that all attempts to influence it by temporal punishments, or burthens, or by civil incapacitations, tend only to beget habits of hypocrisy and meanness, and are a departure from the plan of the Holy author of our religion who being Lord both of body and mind, yet chose not to propagate it by coercions on either...; that to compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves, is sinful and tyrannical; that even the forcing him to support this or that teacher of his own persuasion, is depriving him of the comfortable liberty of giving his contributions to the particular pastor, whose morals he would make his pattern..." And the statute itself enacted "That no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested or burthened, in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or beliefs."

[Everyone knows how our children have suffered for their faith in public schools]

"This Court has previously recognized that the provisions of the First Amendment, in the drafting and adoption of which Madison and Jefferson played such leading roles, had the same objective and were intended to provide the same protection against governmental intrusion on religious liberty as the Virginia statute."

"The 'establishment of religion' clause of the First Amendment means at least this: Neither a state nor the Federal Government can set up a church. Neither can pass laws which aid one religion, aid all religions, or prefer one religion over another. Neither can force nor influence a person to go to or to remain away from church against his will or force him to profess a belief or disbelief in any religion. No person can be punished for entertaining or professing religious beliefs or disbeliefs, for church attendance or non-attendance. No tax in any amount, large or small, can be levied to support any religious activities or institutions, whatever they may be called, or whatever form they may adopt to teach or practice religion. Neither a state nor the Federal Government can, openly or secretly, participate in the affairs of any religious organizations or groups and vice versa. In the words of Jefferson, the clause against establishment of religion by law was intended to erect 'a wall of separation between Church and State."

The WALL works both ways. "Philosophy" classes that openly attack religion (and attempt to establish a humanistic pluralism in its place) must adhere to the Constitution which was written to preserve religious freedom:

"State power is no more to be used so as to handicap religions than it is to favor them." Everson v. Board of Education, 330 U.S. 1, 71 -72 (1947)
