Still plaguing our nation are the
textbooks. I spoke with another government official with the
California State Department of Education on June 13, 2003 for an update
on the issue of the Houghton Mifflin textbook. The textbook was approved
in 1999 and that approval remains in effect until 2005. I was reminded
that the public had the opportunity to review the textbook prior to
their approval process.
It is very sad that parents are being held accountable for what we
pay government officials to do. Apparently I had the opportunity to
drive all the way to Sacramento (5 hours away) in 1999 to review my
son's future textbook (4 years in advance) and make any objections then.
I never dreamed
California would be funding a textbook, the only one that carried the
state's approval, that taught our children whitewashed beliefs of Islam
Yet with this
over the handouts together with the victories over partial birth
abortion, and hopefully with the future victories over all murder of
human life in the womb, just maybe God, in His mercy, will grant our
nation more time...
On the other hand, the Mental Health Association is threatening to
change the definition of pedophilia, reversing it as a mental health
issue. If this continues, pedophilia will be classified as a "choice"
and heinous choices are protected by the ACLU. There are many seeking to
make pedophilia and pornography socially acceptable and a norm.
NOTHING tries God's patience as much as killing and corrupting
children. The end times will come, just like Jesus described, but I
believe our prayers and obedience (or lack of) has an impact on how
soon, just as it always has in the history of the Bible.
Thankfully, God is in control and it's up to HIM when judgment will
come. I believe we're on the brink. Please continue to pray for those
that do not know God and whose eternities are hanging in the balance.
If you would like to write a letter of protest about the textbook,
