Americans United decries Democrats preaching in schools
Influential Separation of Church and State organization says opposition to second Obama term stems from the President and his supporters “using public schools for preaching”.
Americans United for Separation of Church and State has sent a strongly-worded letter to its supporters, citing the First Amendment, and “a new offensive underway” by the White House to blur the line between Church and State in public schools.
The First Amendment begins “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”. According to Americans United,
There is a new offensive underway by an old enemy of diversity and liberty: the Democratic Party.
These wealthy television politicians, sectarian lobbyists and far-left lawyers have a radical agenda to remake the United States under their own intolerant beliefs, who wish to impose their own narrow views upon you, me, and now—the nation’s children.
Their strategy is to use public schools and taxpayer money to do their bidding.
According to AUSCS Executive Director Barry W. Lynn, using taxpayer-funded public schools to teach intolerance and the worship of a politician is offensive. In his letter, he cited several instances of public schools used to impose intolerance and to treat the government as if it were a religion—with President Barack Obama as its spiritual leader. According to Lynn, public schools today use isolation, music, peer pressure, and sex to push their political agenda.
Advocates of “fisting”, “pedophilia”, and “fellatio” are active all across the country. Backed by President Obama, proponents of these ideas have risen to the highest ranks of the White House. We need your help to fight the powerful sexual lobbies in Washington that continue to press for sexual extremism in the nation’s public schools.”
According to Lynn, one of the major issues facing public education today is how “the left is rewriting the nation’s classroom curriculum” so that conservative students fail. As an example, Lynn described a public school teacher ridiculing a fifth-grade girl because her father supported John McCain in 2008. “The answer to disputes over politics in public schools is simple,” said Lynn. “Keep the government out of the private lives of students.”
Americans United for Separation of Church and State warned that the commingling of politics and education has only become worse since President Obama’s election. “In New Jersey, elementary school students were taught to sing a musical adoration of Barack Obama,” Lynn wrote in the letter. “The President of the United States is creating a cult with himself at the head.”
The Obama campaign continues merging political campaigning and public schools into public colleges as well, according to the AUSCS. In Ohio, faculty were asked to turn over their classrooms to Obama campaign representatives.
According to Americans United, “this is only the beginning if President Barack Obama wins in 2012. President Obama is at the head of an especially well-organized and well-funded campaign to undermine the separation of church and state in America’s public schools. An increasingly influential coalition of teacher unions and political leaders are working hard to require taxpayer support for the indoctrination of public school children. President Obama opposes any attempt by underprivileged students from escaping their dangerous public schools, even going so far as killing the acclaimed Washington, DC, Opportunity Scholarship Program.”
“We take a hard line against merging the church and the state,” said AUSCS Executive Director Barry W. Lynn. “We were uncomfortable when Bush read about goats to third graders. It could easily be interpreted as an attempt to introduce religion in school—the Islamic camel’s nose in the tent, so to speak. But Bush’s camel is nothing like the preaching that President Obama’s supporters have introduced in schools.”
Over seven schools have been named after President Barack Obama since he took office. “Naming schools after a serving President? This is unprecedented. To name schools after a president who is already presented as a cult-like figure by teachers, is chilling.”
“President Barack Obama,” continued Lynn, “is the single greatest threat to church-state separation in America.”
Students at the former Midwich Middle School, now the Barack Obama School for Cuckoos, said that the civil rights organization’s concerns were misguided. “Should we pity you? Empathize with your plight?”
Another student added, “you can’t stop us, you know. Don’t try.”
