Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. On Religious Freedom

January 21, 2019 // 0 Comments

Today we commemorate the life and work of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Many Progressives uphold Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., as an example of Progressive ideology.  Yet, how many Progressives have taken the time to actually read what Dr. King had to say about so many ideas he held in common with the Founding Fathers?  Progressives have spent the past century undermining many ideas and values upheld by both Dr. King [Read More ... ]

Smells like Common Core

August 6, 2016 // 0 Comments

America’s Founding Fathers on one hand, and Common Core’s supporters on the other, have two very different views of education’s purpose.  Common Core’s goal is to produce students who are “college and career ready.”  America’s Founding Fathers, in contrast, stated (in the Northwest Ordinance of 1787) that,  “Religion, morality and knowledge being necessary to good government and the [Read More ... ]

Speak Up!

Have you ever considered the number of historical accounts in God’s Word detailing the ways in which God’s people influenced secular governance?  Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Aaron, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, Esther, Samuel, Nathaniel, John the Baptist, Paul, Silas, Peter, the list literally goes on and on. For those of us in America who really do still live in a country governed of, by, and for the people:  we can [Read More ... ]

Common Core: Undermining Our Rights

January 21, 2016 // 0 Comments

Project Veritas just released their 3rd video exposé on Common Core featuring an interview with former Pearson Education executive, Kim Koerber.  Her statements are revealing in many ways, not least of which is her apparent ignorance of the Stop Common Core movement which truly rises above partisan lines.  One of Common Core’s most vocal critics is former Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education, Diane Ravitch, whose [Read More ... ]

Time for Local Control of Education

Tell any American that we should have a National Religion and watch the sparks fly.  Americans have an instinctive – and healthy – aversion to the notion that there should ever be a national religion.  It has been drilled into our heads from an early age that the U.S. Constitution established healthy boundaries and limits for the federal government regarding religion.  Boundaries and limits are a necessary component to [Read More ... ]

A Republic – Without Morality?

September 17, 2015 // 0 Comments

It is amazing how many Americans expect government leaders to be moral – how sickened Americans are when they are lied to by politicians – and yet how NAIVE so many Americans are to expect moral leaders when so many Americans reject the very recipe necessary to achieve moral governance in a Republic.  The Founding Fathers were explicit about the fact that the only way to maintain a free Republic was to maintain virtue and [Read More ... ]

A Republic – Can We Keep It?

September 15, 2015 // 0 Comments

September 17 is Constitution Day, and as required by federal law, all public school teachers – regardless of the subject they are trained to teach – must teach their students about the U.S. Constitution. I teach American History and Civics.  I spend a lot of time talking with my students about the Constitution, but my Constitution Day assignment might appear very basic (and not very different from last year’s [Read More ... ]

Stand With Senator Patrick Colbeck

January 9, 2015 // 0 Comments

Americans witnessed this week our elected representatives in Congress dance to a different tune than the rest of the country is singing.  While Americans jammed the Capitol switchboard urging Congress to elect a new Speaker of the House to replace John Boehner, only 25 members of Congress actually demonstrated the courage to buck the wishes of the House leadership, and to instead vote the will of the People.  We the People have become [Read More ... ]

Constitution Day Assignment

September 17, 2014 // 1 Comment

Being a teacher who seeks to uphold and defend both the spirit and the letter of U.S. Constitutional law, I put together the video below in order to present to my students the core nature of our Constitution from the Founding Fathers’ point of view.  I also sought to overcome obstacles imposed by the 12 years of left-leaning public schooling most of my students have already endured.  As such, I intentionally used quotes from John [Read More ... ]
