The Bible or the Bayonet?

April 1, 2013

"Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled either by a power within them or by a power without them; either by the Word of God or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet."
- Robert Winthrop, Speaker of the House

Public schools in America are becoming testing and training grounds for a monitored police state. Through man’s 10,000 commandments (all in the name of "safety" and "security"), you now have fences around the schools, metal detectors before entering school buildings, surveillance cameras and even armed guards – all because there are those who want to see what happens when you dare God’s justice by departing from His Commandments.

It has been stated that if you will not listen to God’s Ten Commandments, you will listen to man’s 10,000 commandments. And man’s 10,000 commandments can be seen today through the thousands of unconstitutional, un-American policies and measures forced on the American people on a daily basis. As one would expect, unconstitutional government produces bondage rather than liberty. Charles DeMontisque rightly said, “Liberty is the right to do what the law permits.”

Did you know that in many schools across the country, you were required to pass Bible courses before you could graduate high school? All the way up until 1962, prayer was the norm for virtually every school in America and the Ten Commandments were posted in school hallways. The obvious fruit was safety and security, as well as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

In 1980, the Ten Commandments were taken out of the schools in the case Stone v. Graham. The Court made the following statement:

"If the posted copies of the Ten Commandments are to have any effect at all, it will be to induce the schoolchildren to read, meditate upon, perhaps to venerate and obey, the Commandments… [which] is not a permissible … objective."

Cases such as this one can be linked to the quick downward spiral of American freedom, for freedom cannot exist without morality.

I came across some scenarios that exemplify my point:

High school in 1962 vs. 2013

Scenario 1:

Johnny goes duck hunting before school and then pulls into the school parking lot with his shotgun in his truck’s gun rack.

1962 – Vice principal comes over, looks at Johnny’s shotgun, goes to his car and gets his own shotgun to show Johnny.

2013 – School goes into lockdown and the FBI is called. Johnny is hauled off to jail and never sees his truck or his gun again. Counselors are called in for traumatized students and teachers.

Scenario 2:

Tim and Mark get into a fist-fight after school.

1962 – Crowd gathers. Mark wins the fight. Tim and Mark shake hands and end up the best of friends.

2013 – Police called and the SWAT team arrives. They arrest both Tim and Mark. They are both charged with assault and battery and then expelled and put onto probation.

Scenario 3:

Jeffery will not sit still in class; he continuously disrupts other students.

1962 – Jeffery is sent to the principal’s office and given a good paddling. He then returns to class, sits still and does not disrupt other students again.

2013 – Jeffery is given huge doses of Ritalin after being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). Jeffery now becomes a zombie. The family now gets a check from the government and Jeffery becomes disabled.

Scenario 4:

Billy breaks a window on his neighbor’s car.

1962 – His dad gives him a good whipping with his belt, and Billy never does it again.

2013 – Billy’s dad is arrested for child abuse. Billy is then removed from his home and sent to foster care and later joins a gang. The state psychologist is told by Billy’s sister that she remembers being abused as well. Their dad then goes to prison. Billy’s mom has an affair with the psychologist.

Scenario 5:

Bradley gets a headache and takes some aspirin to school. Bradley shares aspirin with another student who also has a headache.

1962 – Bradley’s fellow student thanks him and they both feel better.

2013 – The police are called. Bradley is sent to jail and then to treatment for drug violations. Bradley’s car is searched for drugs and weapons.

Do you ever wonder what your grandparents experienced during the good old days? Well, let me show you so you can understand for yourself why Grandma rocks!
