If you have ever taken the time to ponder upon the state of education in America, perhaps you may consider the process of eliminating the influence of the Christian Bible. The book of Proverbs reminds us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. (1:7) Despite the often repeated lie of bigoted progressives and some libertarians, the Founding Fathers realized the importance of providing and maintaining the needed influence of biblical absolutes upon the future direction of the republic.
In 1776, the future president John Adams said, “statesmen may plan and speculate for liberty, but it is religion and morality alone which can establish the very principles upon which freedom can securely stand.” Of course, contrary to misguided popular opinion, that worthy mindset was widely held among the founders who helped shape the political, educational, and legal foundation of the United States of America.
Such luminaries like Daniel Webster, Benjamin Franklin, Benjamin Rush, Samuel Adams, and the father of our country, George Washington and many others echoed those same sentiments. They wisely believed that the strength of the republic was dependent upon the morality of “We the People.” They also believed that religion (I would say Christianity) must undergird it. The founders clearly understood and saw the proper education of young minds being near the center of positive American progress.

Is God Obsolete?
That is a strange question to a believer but it may still hold relavance... read on.
Many people prefer the term, the universe, the one greater than I , that energy that comes from above, etc. We hear so many vague references to the God of the Universe that we all sound like we re talking in code.
The Jewsish nation of Israel is constantly in the crosshairs of a fast growing list of enemies. The increasing number of those wanting to harm israel now includes the European Union nations that are on a United nations inspired sanction. Not against the muslim nations, where Chritians, Blacks and others are hunted down and slaughtered for political/religious reasons and for sport, but rather, they plot against Israel for simply existing.
These new haermful sanctions could very soon lead to a brutal palestinian state right next door to a shrunken down Israel, along the forced giveaway of eastern Jerusalem. Moreover, theses new sanctions (decided in Brussels, Belgium) would include new so-called economic guidlines pohibiting money from the E.U. from flowing into Israel beyond the so-called green line, also known as the West Bank. In order to receive funding, private Israeli enterprises are required to convince the European Union that they have absolutely no ties to the West Bank, the Golan Heights, and East Jerusalem.
The economic impact could be devestating, to say the least. Many believe this E.U. sanction is part of a massive and growing attitude of anti semitism
