June 25th, 1962, the black day for America.
The day when Chief Justice Earl Warren decided with 5 other judges that praying in American schools is unconstitutional and a violation of the Establishment Clause. This was the prayer deemed unconstitutional by the court:
“Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon Thee, and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers and our country. Amen.”
The case “ Engel v. Vitale” was just the beginning of the end. It was followed by “Lee v. Weisman” in 1992 in which clergy-led prayers at high school graduation ceremonies were prohibited. In another case, “Santa Fe ISD v. Doe”, the Court furthered its decision by banning student-led prayer at high school football games. What is next? To prohibit the moment of prayer on the day of inauguration? To completely abolish the day of prayer? To stop praying before sessions of Congress?
Today is 50th anniversary of this monstrosity. All the people under 50 don’t even know that praying was officially legal in schools. What they do know is that it is illegal to bring one aspirin for headaches in school but it is ok for schools to consult and assist underage pregnancy; it is illegal to talk about God yet saying they are a Satanist is a practice of their first Amendment. It is illegal to teach that God created the world in 7 days, yet every kid needs to learn one year or another that the Big Band Theory could’ve happened.
50 years is enough for darkness.
It’s time to wake up and stand for the truth, to stand for God! Look where society is now. Do we think we have another 50 years to do something? No! We need to act now or it will be too late. If we don’t teach our children to depend in God then they will be taught how to depend on drugs; if we don’t teach them how to pray for their parents they will continue to ignore them; if they don’t pray for their teachers, they will continue to shoot them; if they don’t pray for our country we will lose our freedom one day.
50 year is enough.
I don’t know what you will do “But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
