One of the key policies of a liberal progressive and socialistic government is to undermine the concept of the family. They seek to destroy the cohesiveness of marriage and parenting.
They’ve been very successful in undermining marriage through the promoting of immoral sexual behavior. Premarital and extramarital sexual behavior has been accepted as being the norm these days. Marriage is no longer considered to be a covenantal relationship between one man and one woman with Jesus Christ as the center. Same-sex marriages are becoming accepted and legalized and the Obama administration is trying to destroy the Defense of Marriage Act. Marriage is considered to be a disposable union that can be thrown away when things get difficult instead of working things out.
With the destruction of marriage comes the undermining of parenting and parental authority. Organizations like Planned Parenthood and the public school system, both of which are funded by the federal and state governments, are actively working to destroy that parent child bond and relationship.
Planned Parenthood even has a section on their website that shows kids how to receive abortions and other sexually related items like condoms, without their parents knowing or approving. They promote sexual activity among teenagers without parental knowledge or authority.
The public schools have been under the control of liberal progressives for the past century. If you look in most public schools, you will find material that promotes homosexuality and same-sex marriage. In many public schools located in metropolitan areas, you’ll also find Planned Parenthood.
The public schools no longer teach anything biblical or patriotic. They teach liberal philosophy that the kids need to think about themselves and their community, but not their families. John Dewey, considered by many to be the father of the modern public school system, believed that the schools could effectively change society in one generation by teaching the kids liberal progressive ideas instead of traditional family and biblical values.
The results of this liberal progressive education are being displayed in many of today’s leaders and prominent people. One such example is Melissa Harris-Perry. She is a product of the public school system. She is an author, professor and MSNBC host.
On her show, she has espoused such liberal philosophies as saying that unborn children are just things that take a great deal of money to turn into human beings. Now, she has spilled the beans about the progressive view of children and the family. On a recent program, Harris Perry stated:
“[We in America] haven’t had a very collective notion that these are our children. [W]e have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to their communities.”
“Once it’s everybody’s responsibility and not just the households, then we start making better investments.”
That’s the results of 80 years of influence of John Dewey over the public school system in America. In his day, they would not dare to say this out loud or over the radio, but today, progressives have made so much ground in their efforts to undermine and destroy biblical values that people like Harris-Perry are no longer afraid to speak out loud.
They don’t want parents to have any authority over their children, nor do they want parents filling their heads with biblical conservative values. Progressives want to have control over your kids to teach them their way of life and this works. When Mao Tse Tung took over China, one of his first policies was that the children belong to the community (meaning the government) and it was up to the government to care for and educate the children. In one generation, he had won over the country by first taking control of the children.
Chairman Mao and today’s liberal progressives are actually using a biblical principle to brainwash an entire generation against the Bible. Deuteronomy 6:6-9 states:
“And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
And Proverbs 22:6 states:
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
They fill the children with their propaganda from morning to night, in school and in play. The kids become so filled with the socialist rhetoric that they know of no other way of life. It’s because they fail to teach the two verses (4-5) just prior to these that state:
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.”
How are you training up your children or grandchildren? Have you turned them over to the public schools who believe as Melissa Harris-Perry does? Or are you training them up in the way of the Lord so that they will not depart from it? Not only does the future of America depend upon your answer, but so does the eternal soul of your child. The public schools want your child’s soul to rot in hell for all eternity, do you?
