Our Muslim president has been openly carrying out a war on Christianity. He has repeatedly attacked the Christian rights of members of the military, from enlisted men and women to chaplains who at one point were threatened with court-martials if they didn’t defy their faith by catering to homosexuals. Obama waged war against Christian values that are the basis of traditional marriage of one man with one woman. Obama also used the IRS in his war against Christianity as they followed his instructions in targeting Christian non-profit groups along with other conservative and political groups.
Picking up on Obama’s war against Christianity is Springs Charter Schools in California when they removed any and all library books that had any trace of Christian content. According to the Pacific Justice Institute, who has been called in on the case:
“A parent of students enrolled at Springs Charter Schools was recently shocked to see some of the books being targeted for removal, including the well-known account of Holocaust survivor Corrie ten Boom, The Hiding Place. The parent contacted PJI after library personnel explained to her that they had been directed to remove Christian books, books by Christian authors, and books from Christian publishers.”
Michael Peffer, an attorney with the Pacific Justice Institute sent a cease and desist letter to the charter school. In his letter, Peffer cited the rulings established by the US Supreme Court that states that schools cannot remove books based solely on whether or not they like the content or message.
However, Dr. Kathleen Hermsmeyer, Superintendent of Springs Charter Schools has decided to ignore Peffer’s letter of warning. She recently commented:
“We . . . do not allow sectarian materials on our state-authorized lending shelves.”
In response to Hermsmeyer’s refusal to stop her violation of the First Amendment, Brad Dacus, President of PJI said that his firm is ready to take legal action against the school if they continue. He added:
“It is alarming that a school library would attempt to purge books from religious authors. Indeed, some of the greatest literature of Western Civilization comes from people of faith. Are they going to ban the sermons or speeches of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.? What about the Declaration of Independence that invokes the laws of nature and nature’s God? We are calling on Springs Charter Schools to immediately reverse their ill-conceived and illegal book-banning policy.”
Of all places for this tyranny to take place, it shouldn’t surprise you that it is taking place in one of the most liberal places in America, California. This is the land of nuts, fruits and flakes, some of which have been sent to Congress like Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters. This is also the state that allows students and public schools to celebrate and honor a raving gay activist by the name of Harvey Milk. This is also the state that passed a law making any form of gay conversion or reparative therapy illegal.
We need to pray and support the Pacific Justice Institute in their fight against Obama’s war on Christianity and the Springs Charter School District.
