The current push for state-sanctioned racism in public education is passed off under the idealistic and unrealistic name of Critical Race Theory. This shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise for the simple reason that secularism was inaugurated as America’s official religion by eight U.S. Supreme Court Justices in the mid-20th century. And with that they tore down the American Founders’ Christian bulwark of liberty and autonomy that had been responsible for 350 remarkable years of American history.
For now, America’s meteoric rise is a thing of the past. In Matthew 11:19, Jesus observed that “wisdom is known by her children,” just as a tree is known by its fruits. Whereas true wisdom shows itself in its providential and favorable effects, secularism is recognized by the dark stain it leaves behind in the culture and daily life.
This stain becomes darker and darker with the sexualization of America’s youth, the mindless vacuity of public schooling, and the immoral grooming of junior high 13 and 14-year-old girls being taught that “oral sex, anal sex, sexual fantasy, masturbation, touching each other’s genitals, and vaginal intercourse, is like saying, ‘I like you’.”1
If we won’t put a stop to this, the stain will soon become indelible.
The conservative author and media critic Mark Steyn [born 1959] recently made this observation during a Hillsdale College National Leadership Seminar: “America and the West in general have become almost unrecognizable from what they were not that long ago.”
And who would still recognize America while noticing the following:
• State-mandated racism in public education.
• State-sanctioned induction of pagan secularism in Engel v. Vitale , Abington School District v. Schempp , and Stone v. Graham .
• State-warranted right to kill unborn babies - Roe v. Wade .
• State-approved exaltation and normalization of sin - Obergefell v. Hodges .
• State-appointed “special rights” for homosexual sin - Bostock v. Clayton .
There is no such thing as “neutrality” in religion and public education. To believe in God is every bit of a religious choice as to not believe in God. To include the Bible in public education - as America’s Founders instituted - was a religious decision. The 20th century Supreme Court ruling of prohibiting the Bible and prayer in public schools likewise constituted a secular religious decision.
It has been asked that if America’s Founders wanted to establish Christianity as the official religion of America, why didn’t they just say so? Well, they did. A straight answer to that question can be found in the 13 Original States Charters and Constitutions of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Connecticut, New York, South Carolina, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey and Maryland.

Thirty-seven years ago, then three-term Georgia Congressman Newt Gingrich said “I favor public learning, [but] I’m not sure I favor public education anymore.”2
He then made the case for school voucher programs as the way to empower parents to take control of their children’s education and eliminate the perversion of youth and culture by secularism’s high priests and priestesses in public schools.
