They overwhelmingly voted for Obama. A man who
supports champions infanticide; encourages demands property rights erosion; and frog marched a straight, party line govt. redistribution of wealth voting record during his ridiculously short time in public office. All extremely anti-Biblical concepts.
So what gives? That's what Phyllis Schlafly of Eagle Forum asked in this Dec. 2008 commentary, Public Schools Change Young Evangelicals' Values.
"The National Association of Scholars reports that use of the term "social justice" is today understood to mean "the advocacy of more egalitarian access to income through state-sponsored redistribution." That is academic verbiage for Barack Obama's assertion that he wants to "spread the wealth around."
"Rethinking Schools" is a Milwaukee-based organization that publishes instructional materials to assist teachers how to "weave social justice issues throughout the curriculum." Lessons include "Rethinking Mathematics: Teaching Social Justice by the Numbers" and "Reading, Writing, and Rising Up: Teaching About Social Justice and the Power of the Written Word."
Howard Zinn, author of the anti-American "People's History of the United States," urges educators to prioritize "social justice" education over political neutrality. In a 1998 interview, he said "quiet revolution" to move us toward "democratic socialism" was his goal in writing "People's History."
The thinking of teachers is further molded at expensive conferences, financed by billing the taxpayers. The National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME) sponsors seminars with titles such as "Our Work as Social Justice Educators," "Teaching for Social Justice in Elementary Schools," "Dismantling White Privilege and Supporting Anti-Racist Education in our Classrooms and Schools," and "Creating Change Agents Who Teach for Social Justice."
Mrs. Schlafly puts forth some good points on the tax payer supported radicalization & secularization of class curriculum during the previous 50 years, which has seduced much of the population through immersion, but Mrs. Schlafly never touched the third rail of evangelic life: self criticism. A criticism that should include a thorough examination of many evangelics own wimped out, panty-waist capitulation to the pervasive, petulant putrid armpit of not simply base personal liberty, but the license to abuse the populace with the most wretched vices of humanity, and call it 'lifestyle or choice', then peddle it to our children as 'entertainment & tolerance'.
We've done generations of children a great dis-service that borders on abuse. And we're reaping the bitter harvest at the ballot box.
