WND: Rev. David Rives — Don’t Compromise!

The Retard-o-tron™ has been getting a workout today. It just directed us to WorldNetDaily’s presentation of a new video by the brilliant and articulate leader of David Rives Ministries. WND’s headline was No need to compromise creation with evolution.

The rev’s video is titled Be Not Conformed to this World. With trembling fingers, we clicked on it. This one is amazing!

Macro evolution is a silly theory. Science doesn’t prove the world is old. When science opposes the bible, it’s eventually proved to be wrong. You get all of that — and more! — in only one and a half minutes. How can you resist this opportunity? Click over to WND and watch the thing. Don’t delay!

As we’ve done before with the rev’s videos, please feel free to use the comments section as an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. You know the rules. Okay, now go to it.

  1. Wow. The music alone made me race to the bathroom.
    That and Ray Compost in two days SC! I’ll go and eat a banana now and try to calm down.

  2. Another Wow. I am surprised that the content of this one did not blow the Retard-o-tron to smithereens. The number of lies per second must be close to a record for Rives. I also note that he has moved indoors – maybe he thinks the background makes him appear more erudite.

  3. He says that history shows that whenever science conflicts with the Bible, it turned out that science was wrong. I can’t think what he might be counting as an example of this.

  4. Of making this video, as they say of Lance Armstrong,
    the good reverend had a ball. 🙂

    Another Freshwater….or has he had a sex change?

    Science teacher, Bible quoting posters, Bible class monitor…..
    Shissh…talk about dejavu. Students could even place written
    prayers in her box.

    You can read the letter she got from her boss. It even cites
    court decisions and the Constitution. But she is suing and
    yep, American Freedom Law Center is representing her.

    Some of the letter:
    Specifically, as a result of the investigation. I find that you have four conunercially produced
    posters displayed in your classroom that feature the following Bible verses:
    “WASH AWAY ALL MY INIQUITY AND CLEANSE ME
    FROM MY SIN …. WASII ME. AND I WILL BE WHITER
    THAN SNOW.” PSALM 51 :2,7.
    “THE LORD IS MY ROCK , AND MY FORTRESS, AND MY
    DELIV ERER; MY GOD, MY STRENGTH, AND WHOM I
    WILL TRUST:’ PSALM 18 :2.
    “THE HEAV ENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD; THE
    SKIES PROCLAIM THE WORK OF HIS HANDS.” PSALM
    19: I
    “LET THEM PRAISE THE NAME OF THE LORD, FOR HIS
    NAME ALONE IS EXALTED, HIS SPLENDOR IS ABOVE
    THE EARTH AND THE HEAVENS.” PSALM 148:13
    rn addition, I find that you placed another poster on your classroom wall. which appears to have
    been generated with the use of a computer and printer. The poster in question superimposes the
    following Bible verse over computer generated images oran American flag, school books, etc.:
    “Be on guard. Stand true to what you believe. Be courageous. Be
    I
    strong. And everything you do must be done in love.”
    Corinthians 16: 13- J 4.

    I

    Corinthians 16: 13- J 4.
    I also find that you posted a sketch or drawing on your classroom wall, depicting three crosses on
    a hill. I conclude that this artwork is an obvious reference to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ at
    Calvary, in Jerusalem.
    In addition, I find that you posted a quote from President Ronald Reagan on your classroom wall .
    which states:
    “Without God there is no virtue because there is no prompting of
    the conscience … without God there is a coarsening of the society;
    without God democracy will not and cannot long endure … lf ever
    we forget that we arc One Nation tinder (ind, then we will be a
    Nation gone under.”
    Furthermore, I find that since late September or early October. you have permitted the High
    School’s student Bible Study Club. which you arc the staff monitor of. to place and maintain a
    ‘Prayer Request’ box in your classroom. covered with bible verses and other religious messages,
    such as:
    ” Inspired Bible Club Prayer Requests.”
    “For where two or three have gathered in my name, I am in the
    midst” Matthew 18:20.
    “And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have
    faith :’ Matthew 2 1:22.
    ··Whatever you ask in my name. this I will do, that the father may
    be glorified in the son. If you ask me anything in my name, I ‘Will
    do it:’ John 14 :13-14.
    “We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties.”
    Oswald Chambers.
    In addition, 1 find that you have placed sticky notes on your desk that contain bible verses and
    other religious messages. such as:
    ” I will remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the
    Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take
    heart and wait for the Lord'” Psalm 27: 13-14.
    “For the company of the godless is burren, and fire consumes the
    tents of the corrupt. They conceive mischief and bring forth
    iniquity. and their mind prepares deception.·’ Job 15:34-34.
    ··So let us seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope
    we cherish and confess, and our acknowledgement of it. for He

    who prom ised it
    Hebrews 10:23.
    IS
    reliable (sure) and faithful to His word .”
    “Lord, when we are wrong make us willing to change. and when
    we are right make us easy to live with:’ (quoting Scottish
    Clergyman, Peter Marshall).
    I also find that you have placed and maintained a humorous poster in your classroom, depicting
    an antique telephone and including the following script:
    “It·s for you … GOOD MORNING, TH IS IS GOD … I WILL BE
    HANDLING ALL YOUR PROBL EMS TODAY. I WILL NOT
    NEED YOUR HELP, SO HAVE A GOO D DAY.”
    Finally, in reference to Dr. Luther Robinson, M.D., who you procured as a guest speaker to
    address your Anatomy and Physiology class on May 31, 2012, I find that his power point
    presentation included Iwo slides thai displayed Bible verses, in the context of his lecture on
    morphology, which focused on human embryonic and fetal development. including birth defects
    and genetic disorders. The slides included the following Bible verses:
    “And the angel of the Lord appeared … and said. ” … Now therefore
    beware. I pray thee, and drink not wine or strong drink.” Judges
    13:3.4
    “Whom shall J send and who will go for Us?” “Then 1 said … ”
    Isaiah 6:7,8.’
    ( further find that you knew or should have known of the content of these slides in advance of
    Dr. Robinson’s presentation to your class on May 31, 2012. since, in the “Guest Speaker Request
    Fonn” that you filled out (copy enclosed), you indicated that you had reviewed the materials in
    advance of the presentation.
    Based upon all the foregoing circumstances and facts, ] find that the religi ous materials that you
    have posted or displayed in your classroom are nol solely for your O\\l’Tl inspirati on. Rather, it is
    my conclusion that you are using your publicly funded classroom to express your personal
    religious beliefs to your students, including but not limited to your apparent belief in the divine
    inspiration and authority of the Bible as the word of God, and to advance Judea-Christian
    principles. I am therefore directing you to immediately remove all of the afore-described
    posters, notes, artwork, prayer box, etc., so that anyone visiting or attending your class in the
    future will not see any religious messages or content attached to or otherwise placed on the
    public property of the District.
    If you need to be able to occasionally glance at inspirational Bible verses between classes during
    the course of the day, I suggest that you keep such material in a discreet folder that only you will
    have access to. You may keep such a folder in a drawer of your desk, so long as you take
    precautions not to share it or disclose its contents to your students or their parents or guardians.
    I am further directing you to more carefully screen the presentation materials of future guest
    speakers, in advance of each presentation, to ensure that such materials do not include any
    religious messages or content. In the event that you find religious messages or content. then you
    will need to comply with Board Policy 19998331, which is addressed below in greater detail.
    You must also carefully refrain from using any references to religion in the delivery of your
    instructional program unless it is a required element of a course of instruction and has my prior
    approval (or my successor’s prior approval).
    Except for wearing religious jewelry, such as a cross, I am also directing you to refrain from all
    other fonns of communication with students during the school day (whether verbal, email,
    lexting, Y.tritten, etc.) that would conflict with your duty to show complete neutrality toward
    religion and to refrain from promoting religion or entangling yourself in religious matters.
    I am also directing you to carefully review and comply with the following Board Policies, copies
    of which I have enclosed herewith
    Policy 2005 8271 (Acceptable Use of
    CornputerslTechnology and Internet Access), Policy 19998331 (Controversial Issues), and 1999
    8322 (Curriculum Areas in Conflict With Religious Beliefs). With respect to Policy 8271 in
    particular, you should already be well familiar with paragraph 9 thereof, since it is one of the
    policies reviewed with all school statT at the start of each school year. Paragraph 9, entitled
    “Ethical Use (Staft),” provides:
    “Use of District network resources and any other CCSD
    technology resources are a privilege. Religious messages and
    materials that are intended or could be perceived to be
    proselytizing are strictly prohibited:’

    There is much more in that letter……
