There’s a First Amendment controversy brewing after a South Dakota school board voted to allow copies of the Bible to be distributed to fifth-grade students.

The American Civil Liberties Union is now working to convince the Miller School District in Miller, South Dakota, that it should reverse its decision, saying the district is stepping “onto shaky constitutional ground.”

In a letter sent to the district Monday, the South Dakota branch of the ACLU said that the school district is putting itself in a difficult position by allowing Gideons International, a Christian organization, to offer up pocket-sized copies of the New Testament.

“Under the Constitution schools cannot intentionally, or unintentionally, advance religion or become too entangled with religious groups,” the letter read. “The courts have repeatedly said that schools must also avoid favoring or appearing to favor a religious view, and they may not create any situation in which students feel coerced to participate in religion.”

The ACLU said in a statement that the New Testament distribution is concerning, especially considering students of minority faiths who might not want a copy of the Bible.

“For the last few years, we have become increasingly aware of the devastating effects that bullying has, especially on children who are isolated from their peers because of real or perceived differences in this case weather or not their accept a Bible,” the statement said.

A message left by TheBlaze for a spokesperson at the Miller School District has not been returned. It is unclear when and how the books would be distributed.

Its amazing to me that some reading materials at schools endorsed sexual content for their classes to read but when it comes to Bible it is a uproar its not like they are forcing the Bible on students it is their free choice to read it or not this is a godless society. Alice Bailey said when you are changing a nation, don’t bother with the old people, they are too stuck in the old traditions, they will not change, but GO FOR THE CHILDREN and that is what she did. She said ‘go for the children especially 10 years and below’, since 1945 i.e. any person below 60 years can be a victim of the ideas and the deceptions of this prophetess of the New Age. She came out with a 10 POINT CHARTER that is placed in the House of Lords – House of Commons in the U.K. ; Today our governments and parliaments are implementing these.

 

Purpose:- To change Christian tradition or to redeem the nations of Christian tradition.

1.TAKE GOD AND PRAYER OUT OF THE EDUCATION SYSTEM

She said; Change curriculum to ensure that children are freed from the bondage of Christian culture. Why? Because children go to school to be equipped to face life, they are willing to trust and they are willing to value what is being given to them.
If you take God out of education, they will unconsciously form a resolve that God is not necessary to face life. They will focus on those things the school counts them worthy to be passed on and they will look at God as an additional, if one can afford the additional

 

2.REDUCE PARENTAL AUTHORITY OVER THE CHILDREN

She said; Break the communication between parent and child (Why?). So that parents do not pass on their Christian traditions to their children, liberate children from the bondage of their parent traditions (how?)

a)Promote excessive child rights;

b)Abolish corporal punishment

c)Teachers are the agents of implementation – from workshops, teachers tell children ‘your parent has no right to force you to pray or read the Bible, you are yourself, have a right of your own, you need to discover yourself, self expression, self realization, self fulfillment are all buzz words

3.DESTROY THE JUDEO-CHRISTIAN FAMILY STRUCTURE
OR THE TRADITIONAL CHRISTIAN FAMILY STRUCTURE (Why?).

It is oppressive and that the family is the core of the nation. If you break the family, you break the nation. Liberate the people from the confines of this structure (How?)

a)Promote sexual promiscuity – free young people to the concept of premarital sex, let them have free sex, lift it so high that the joy of enjoying it(sex) is the highest joy in life, fantasize it, that everybody will feel proud to be seen to be sexually active, even those outside of marriage

b)Use advertising industry, media – T.V., magazines, film industry to promote sexual enjoyment as the highest pleasure in humanity

4.IF SEX IS FREE, THEN MAKE ABORTION LEGAL AND MAKE IT EASY

She said; Build clinics for abortion – Health clinics in schools. If people are going to enjoy the joy of sexual relationships, they need to be free of unnecessary fears, in other words they should not be hampered with unwanted pregnancies.

5.MAKE DIVORCE EASY AND LEGAL, FREE PEOPLE FROM THE CONCEPT OF MARRIAGE FOR LIFE.

People enter into marriage having signed contracts of how they will share their things after divorce. People enter with one foot and another behind. 50 years ago divorce was unthinkable. It is one thing for a marriage to fail but it is another thing for people to enter marriage with an intention to enjoy as long as it was enjoyable and to walk out of it.
