Today’s letter-to-the-editor is somewhat like a few others we’ve written about on this topic, but we think it’s better than the rest. The title is Removing God from schools leads to mass shootings. It appears in the Muskogee Phoenix of Muskogee, Oklahoma, and the newspaper has a comments feature.
Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. His first name is Joshua. We wrote about one of his earlier letters in #266: Jesus a Monkey? Excerpts from his new letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
Since the Florida school shooting, school safety measures, ranging from turning schools into armed military camps to imposing unconstitutional gun controls, have been discussed. However, few are discussing school shootings’ root reason: removal of God and biblical principles.
Amazing! Josh has identified the root cause of school shootings. He says:
When even mentioning God’s name, when PRAYING to Him is outlawed in the schools, is it any wonder that instead of His protection, His judgments are displayed against an institution which so grossly insults Him?
Wow! School shootings are God’s judgment on our schools! It makes perfect sense. Then Josh tells us:
And when spanking, the only God-ordained method of child-discipline, is practically removed, is it any wonder that the students are ungovernable, even to the point of murder? A Muskogee public school teacher told me recently that students now often curse or even physically abuse their teachers. So, instead of correcting such behavior with spankings, we instead transform schools into police states to protect the innocent students and teachers? Amazing logic!
He’s right! We must bring back school spanking! Josh continues:
And when students are taught they’re nothing but evolved monkeys, is it any wonder if one soulless monkey callously murders other soulless monkeys?
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! We’ve discussed that one before — see But They’ll Behave Like Monkeys! Let’s read on:
I believe the public education system is irredeemable. Its founders, such as John Dewey and Horace Mann, were largely atheistic humanists who believed humanity would improve without God. The system has become progressively morally bankrupt, so that in a few short decades, we’ve gone from schools where Christian ethics, prayer and corporal discipline were the norm (with no school shootings, I might add) to schools where these things are outlawed and children’s indoctrination include such “values” as Darwinism, radical sex education and the glories of sodomy (and where school shootings are the norm).
Atheism! Darwinism! Sodomy! It all fits together. However, regarding Josh’s claim that there were no school shootings until “a few short decades” ago, we suggest that he take a look at Wikipedia’s List of school shootings in the United States, which goes back a wee bit farther than that.
Here’s one last excerpt:
Parents, as you care for your children’s physical and spiritual well-being, I urge you again to make what sacrifices you must to homeschool them.
And don’t hesitate to spank them. Great letter!
