I should have posted this yesterday

Stop the ACLU Blogburst---we usually post on Thursdays, but with all the hurricane news, I forgot yesterday was Thursday.
Back To School With The ACLU

It’s that time of year again. Summer is officially over, and the kids are heading back to school. Our blogburst team suggested we write about how the ACLU affects our public education system. So here you go.

While the ACLU will protect student’s right to wear gay pride T-shirts, and shirts calling Bush a terrorist. However, if your child is pro-life you should probably call some else, like The Thomas More Law Center.

If you don’t want your child thinking they came from a monkey, you had best just homeschool them. Any view challenging this myth might be met with a lawsuit. If not a myth, a flawed theory.

Yes, the ACLU is very concerned with what your child will learn in school. They don’t want your child learning the values of abstinence.

Part Time Pundit points out:

They cite evidence that abstinence education programs do not work. History disproves this as we haven’t had anything close to the rates of single mothers, teenage pregnancies, or STD infections before sex-ed was taught in schools. For centuries, if not millennia, telling people to reserve sex for marriage worked. If they want proof, look back 100 years. Abstinence works every time it’s tried.

The irony is that while suggesting there is proof that abstinence education does not work, Planned Parenthood (through their research arm) has inadvertently shown that sex-ed and easy access to birth control has not slowed unintended pregnancies, reduced abortion, or reduced STD infections. Their recent report says:

“54% of women having abortions used a contraceptive method during the month they became pregnant. 76% of pill users and 49% of condom users reported using the methods inconsistently, while 13% of pill users and 14% of condom users reported correct use.”

The facts are these: abstinence education works and throwing condoms at kids doesn’t. If you aren’t ready to be a daddy you might want to think about not having sex which is the only effective way to not become one.

We all know that Christmas Carols will not be tolerated. But did you know that apparantly even Santa Claus somehow promotes Christianity? You know, some Muslim kid might get offended.

But not to worry! We are told that public school cannot allow preference to one religion. Yet children are asked to fast and pray to Allah, pretend they are Muslims, memorize the Quran and play Jihad.

Because way back when Bill Clinton was President, he preferred to “negotiate” with Muslim leaders rather than answer terrorist bombings with our military. He colluded with the ACLU to present religious guidelines worded to manipulate court rulings at the ACLU’s discretion, successfully censoring Christians and the Bible in public school while promoting every other faith, specifically Islam.

In 1995, Clinton’s Presidential Guidelines, Religious Expression in Public School, were originally drafted by the ACLU. These guidelines appeared to protect Christian rights, but for every single “religious expression,” there is a clause of escape, a backdoor for secular groups to attack Christianity at will, and the ACLU has been happy to oblige. Source.
And if your childrens teachers pray! They could be compared to terrorists.

No wonder so many homeschool. Well, we wish our kids the best of luck in their politically correct learning environment. But the first I hear of my kid having to play Jihad or bow to Mecca, he will be taken out and homeschooled. We all know they will not be playing the part of Joseph or Mary in the school plays anymore, let’s just hope the ACLU doesn’t end up stealing their Christmas Winter Break.
