We Salute a Pioneer

Christians! Get your children out of anti-Christian public schools and into Christian education!

How many times have you heard that? I wish I had a nickel for every time I’ve said it. And we say it because it’s true. Really, how many examples do you need? “Communism has a lot of good ideas…” “You can be a girl today and a boy tomorrow, depending on how you feel…” “The Bible is hate speech…” “You’d better learn to like gay marriage!” These are just a few things that children are being taught in public school, every day, in all 50 states.

Back in the 1970s, R.J. Rushdoony and a few others defended Christian homeschooling against determined efforts by local, state, and federal government to wipe it out. His work inspired others–including the ministry which I salute here today.

Frontline Ministries last month celebrated its 20th anniversary–banquet, speeches, videos, etc. Frontline’s co-founder, E. Ray Moore, ex-Army chaplain, particularly stresses Frontline’s special project, The Exodus Mandate, dedicated to inspiring a mass exodus of Christian children from “Pharaoh’s schools” in America. Expecting to be in it for the long haul, Lt. Col. Moore likens Exodus Mandate’s goal to the lifelong mission of William Wilburforce to abolish the slave trade in the British Empire–a mission that succeeded, but only after decades of struggle and sacrifice.

Exodus Mandate has it right–right on the money. Nothing will do our country more good than for millions of Christian children to be withdrawn from public schools and given a Christian education, either at home, at a church, or at a Christian school.

And conversely, nothing does America more harm than anti-Christian public education.

Col. Moore and his fellow-laborers have preached this message tirelessly for 20 years. As might be expected in this fallen world, the stiffest opposition comes from other Christians. But that doesn’t make him stop.

Inform yourself: visit the Exodus Mandate’s website, http://www.exodusmandate.org .See how public education really and truly is anti-Christian, pagan education. As incredible as it may seem, this is simply true.

I’ve been a public school teacher. I’ve seen what goes on. And I’m here to tell you, every word that Col Moore says about it is the truth.

PS: If you won’t believe Moore, if you won’t believe me, maybe you’ll believe the words of the Experts who founded public education and made it what it is today–a rigorously anti-Christian enterprise. Read The Messianic Character of American Education by R.J. Rushdoony, available from the Chalcedon Foundation store, http://www.chalcedon.edu . These villains were quite candid about what they were trying to do, and didn’t mind putting it in writing.
