Could public high school social studies get any more humanistic?

Recently the same teacher who claimed that Christians, Jews, and Muslims all worship the same God gave out an extra-credit assignment: Read The Da Vinci Code and note all occurrences of Renaissance art. Sound a little fishy for a supposedly secular social studies class?

I was actually quite shocked when he gave it out. I began to question whether this class was really¬† secular or not… but this confirms it: The teacher is actively trying to undermine our beliefs.

Public schools teach false religion rather than secularism

Today in a world cultures social studies class at my public high school, my teacher lied. He said in the beginning of class that when we learn about the religions of the world, we examine them from a historical perspective rather than a religious perspective.

Alright, I’m sort of okay with that. I don’t want him indoctrinating everyone else with Satanist doctrine. It would be better if it were explicitly Christian, but as long as public school remains “legal” they must abide by the first amendment.

But instead of keeping what he taught us completely secular, he later said that Jews, Muslims, and Christians all worship the same God, only calling Him by different names. He made no effort to make it clear that this was merely his personal opinion; he stated it as fact, and he even went on to say that a common misconception among religious folk is that they think that they worship different gods.

He’s loony. If he thinks he is the prophet of the “absolute truth” (of liberalism), maybe he should take the time to actually learn about the religions. In Christianity, there is only one faith (Ephesians 4:1-6), Jews rejected God the Father when they rejected His Son, and Muslims have a god (demon) completely different from the Christian God. The God of the Bible teaches evangelism, spreading the Gospel, and warning unbelievers. The Qur’an teaches you warning unbelievers is pointless; in other words, it teaches “tolerance”:

As for the Disbelievers, Whether thou warn them or thou warn them not it is all one for them; they believe not. Allah hath sealed their hearing and their hearts, and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be an awful doom. (Qur’an 2:6-7)

His lies about God and religion were met with no rebellion by the class. There are, supposedly, several Christians in the class, but I guess they were uneducated or even unbelieving.

Why They’re Dropping Out of High School

ABC News just ran an article on the rising levels of kids leaving high school: 2,500 drop out every day. Half the students are dropping out of the largest American school systems, and the unconstitutional Dept. of Education found in a study “that 31 percent of American students were dropping out or failing to graduate in the nation’s largest 100 public school districts.” The article continues with reports from specific students:

So why do they drop out? Eli Thomasson, 16, of Georgia, explains why he wanted to drop out of school earlier this year.

“I was just tired of school, you know. I didn’t like it. I had made my mind up that I wasn’t going to school anymore,” Thomasson said.

Later, the article points out how likely you are to become a criminal if you drop out of high school (unfortunately they separate each dang sentence into its own line):

If you drop out of high school, your chances of running afoul of the law increase.

Nationally, 68 percent of state prison inmates are dropouts.

Sheriff Jerry Brogdon of Berrien County, Ga., sees those consequences every day at the Berrien County Jailhouse.

He said that “81.2 percent of the inmates we have in here today is high school dropouts.”

Anthony White is a 17-year-old Berrien County Jail inmate.

He quit high school just two weeks before he spoke to ABC News from the jailhouse. He was arrested for allegedly firing a gun in the air just three days after he quit school.

“I felt like I was grown,” White said. “Nobody could tell me not to make my own decision. That’s how I felt at the time.”

But White said, “Now I wish I would’ve listened.”

James Keefe, 19, is another inmate. He dropped out of high school, too.

He has been arrested on burglary charges twice.

“When I was in school, I didn’t get in no trouble,” Keefe said.

News articles like this often leave out any subjective reasoning to avoid bias. But in excluding the Christian viewpoint, how are people ever going to know the real reason why high school stinks?

There are, as far as I can think up, three main reason why high school, or simply public school in general, stinks:

  1. Godlessness. By subjecting education to the “discretion” of the federal government, the public schools are forced to account for every false religion that drags its filthy mouth through the door. Thus, the schools teach Godlessly, removing any absolute sense of morality from the needy minds of the young.
  2. Boredom. Public school is so unengaging that it reaches a point of sin: Boredom is, as Charley Reese put it, “the devil’s workshop.” Also owing to the boredom is that it has to account for the lowest common denominator: the racial gap, and stupid people in general. (The schools are, for one thing, too afraid to kick out its less bright, or maybe just more lazy students for fear of being called racist.)
  3. Pop culture. Public high schools are inevitably filled with Godless teens religiously devoted to their pop idols and completely opposed to all authority, especially their parents.

I’ve been to public school, so I know what kind of filth pollutes it: Teachers who promote whoredom and false religions, teenagers who engage in dangerous and immoral affairs of sex and drugs, and actors perpetually portraying their favorite race. It’s not pretty.
