President Bush, Iraq, Patriot Heroes & Troops: Our forefathers would applaud!
Islam Induction in
our Public School Textbooks
|"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."
*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.
