Stand Up For What Is Right

The 'Freedom From Religion Foundation,' an atheist group that is notorious for doing everything they possibly can to eliminate religion from the public square, has been bested by a group of school kids.

A high school in Alabama traditionally offered a prayer over the loudspeakers before football games.  This, of course, caused the atheists to get their knickers in a twist and they pressured school officials to eliminate the prayer and replace it with a moment of silence.

The kids were having none of it.  At the next football game the students stood en masse along with the rest of the fans and loudly recited The Lord's Prayer.  The full article is HERE.

We hear about students who are woefully ignorant when it comes to their grasp of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  We hear of kids who blindly follow along with whatever is the latest stupidity preached by the lunatic left.  But these kids made a decision to literally stand up for their beliefs.

I applaud this group of students as well as their parents who obviously raised them right.

  2. Amen, Vicki.

    Conservatives are so afraid to "upset the apple cart." Folks, the apple cart is on its back, with one wheel squeekily spinning down to a stop in the late afternoon sun.

    If our children and grandchildren have any hope for freedom, it lies in us. If we don't SPEAK up, if we don't ACT up, America will cease to exist. Its freedoms and blessings will be the stuff of legend, handed down orally from generation to generation, as all the books will have been burned.

    It's our game to win or lose. This nation was not built on fear, but fear will indeed destroy it...

    1. You are spot on Pete, about conservatives being afraid to speak up. I am reminded of my mother who forever warned me about what to say and what to do because, "What will people say." Me...I rarely gave a rodent's behind what people said, to her everlasting grief.

      I have come to believe we are, as Haggard said so well, 'rolling downhill like a snowball headed for hell.' Many of us can no longer march in protest, but that doesn't mean we have to just sit down and shut up. My grands already have many more restrictions on their freedoms than I did. I shudder to think of what the youngest three will be taught when they head off for college. I know they have been 'brought up right' and I pray that they have learned enough from their parents to be able to withstand the insanity now being spoon fed to students.

      It is encouraging to know that there are still some kids who are willing to stand up for what they believe. I really would like to see that movement take hold. It has to, or we are truly doomed.

  3. Depending on what your youngest three want to do, perhaps home schooling or a technical school might be a better choice than the liberal indoctrination camps that pose for schools now.

    What the kids in Alabama did is great. God bless them all.

    1. LindaG...The two older girls are nearly college age now and both have talked about careers that require further education and degrees. Their parents keep a close eye on what they are doing and learning, with my daughter-in-law having been involved with education for years. Both girls know their own minds and I doubt they would be easily indoctrinated. There was a school day where the kids could dress as they chose. My grand wanted to wear a red MAGA cap and would have, had her Dad been able to get one in time. :)

  4. When your kids take a stand for whats right. Those parents did a great job in raising their kids. I also credit the grandparents for rising the parents the right way.

    1. Rob...Having generations of family who are grounded in God and the Constitution makes a huge difference in how kids turn out. It is no guarantee, but it sure does help to set them on the right path.

  5. for education by computer go to udacity and coursera. for kids there is khan academy and besides udacity there are other college on line sites you can get actual credit for the courses if you pay a fee otherwise they are free also look into clep tests and you get full credit from them they are cheap and my daughter tested out of all lower category english classes
    lots of options
    boy was really raked over the coals even though he did not speak in the required feminism classes because he is white and male his presence was causing other students to be afraid to speak !! according to the crazy professor who later called him to her office and cried for an hour he did not know what to do.
    keep your kids away as long as possible
    make sure they have training in a hands on trade, too, if possible daughter took electric wiring as an evening class while she was in college

    1. deb...These are my grands and their parents make the decisions. The kids are being raised by parents who have been teaching them practical things and keep a close eye on what they are being taught in school. I think they will be just fine.
