Why do we have to pray so hard, sing so many hymns, and speak the truth?
Because we live in a fallen world that’s falling farther every day: but we proclaim our loyalty to Jesus Christ the King of kings.
For instance: The principal of Manchester Elementary School in Omaha, Nebraska, has been “placed on leave,” whatever that means, for banning candy canes from her school’s classrooms. Candy canes, she explained in a memo to all staff, when you turn ’em upside-down, make a “J” for Jesus and that’s not allowed, it is forbidden… (http://thepoliticalforums.com/threads/103592-Principal-bans-candy-canes-says-%E2%80%98J-shape%E2%80%99-stands-for-Jesus). “Historically, the shape is a J for Jesus,” she wrote. We wonder how close she came to banning the letter “j” altogether.
She also banned the colors red and green.
It seems the school board took action because they were scared of being sued for showing overt hostility to Christianity and Christians. Supreme Court recently said you can’t do that. But don’t look for any “human rights” commissions to stop doing it.
As it is, the traditional Christmas holiday that always used to be observed by schools is mostly now a thing not to be mentioned: now the holiday is usually spoken of as some kind of “winter” celebration.
Secular tinhorns can’t make up their minds about which religion they’re trying to establish as the official state religion of America–atheism or retro paganism. Either way, public education is on board. Anything but Jesus, is their motto.
And Christians continue to send their kids to these schools because ________?
We live in a dark age. Sing louder! It may let in some light.
