Banned Prayer Equals Banned Standards

on December 5, 2011

When are we going to see the connection between our moral decline as a society and the removal of God from our public and private lives? One cannot argue the increase in violence, chaos, and madness. All you need to do is look around at the violence in schools and the failing education system , acts of violence in places of worship that were once considered sacred and untouchable, pre-marital sex, promiscuity, drugs, homosexuality, bullying, depression, suicide, and …….I think  you get my point.

Since 1962 when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against prayer in schools, America has been in a state of death. This very action has given way to destruction and violence in schools that was never witnessed before. We are living in a state of death because these crimes are common and we are living in constant fear of what next. Our children are not safe; no one is safe living in such an environment. That’s why I say we are in a state of death; we are only surviving in a lawless and immoral society.

I wonder if Madalyn Murray O’Hair (the woman who was responsible for the removal of prayer and bible recitation in schools) really knew what she was doing.  When you remove the highest standard from an important place such as schools, you leave young impressionable minds to determine their own standards and this can be dangerous as we have seen. Sure, children are supposed to have their faith and morals established at home first; however, if this same faith and morality is not reinforced at the very place where children spend most of their time at away from home, then mixed and confusing messages will be fed to that child. Mom and dad say that we must honor and acknowledge God in all we do but when you get to school it’s all HELL. God is creator of everything but they can’t mention his name and they are being taught Darwin’s theory and the Big Bang theory while teachers are sleeping with students and the list goes on and on.

 I am not saying that everyone has to believe in the same thing, in the same way. I’m just saying that there needs to be a common standard; a common denominator that connects us all and that common denominator is GOD. If you look at all the religions that believe in God, they all have the same values and principles in their faith. Is it not true that 2+5=7, 6+1=7, 4+3=7, and 7+0=7? They all have a different way of getting to that common factor but they do get the correct answer. I’m just afraid that when we say we don’t want to have prayer in schools, mention God’s name, the Bible or anything about HIM, we are saying that we don’t want to be held accountable for our actions and we want to bring God down to our level instead of raising ourselves up to His level. When we bring God down to our level, we create problems and situations for ourselves (like what we see in schools today) that ONLY God can get us out of.

 There is no such thing as separation of church and state. He is the creator of us all and everything around us, therefore God and life are one in the same.

Happy Homemaking!

    When Jefferson first wrote about the separation of church and state, it was intended to protect the rights of churches from the government. Isn’t it amazing how that has gotten so twisted around that people now think it was intended to protect the government and individual rights from the church?

      Huh! Never thought saw it that way but it’s so true. I have a feeling this is not the only law that has been twisted around from its original intent. Maybe we all should do a little research.
