Your thread title should be 'Trump rejects fringe group call to put God back in schools, abolish Education Department.' Find something more recent to display your TDS.
To repeat and bump jazz's post above:

this article referenced in the original post is 2 1/2 years old.


This is a dishonest thread title. I really dislike posters who fabricate issues to push an agenda.

Because it's not about a belief in God. It's about holding all people to their religious standards regardless of what anyone else believes. It's about control and always has been. As an atheist, I'm sure I have no place in their vision for the nation.

Some of the most religious countries in the world are also the most violent. I wouldn't think of religion as any kind of antidote to conflict and strife.

You all keep saying the article is years old. Okay, fair enough. So then they're not still trying to do this in 2019?

The Washington Post reports:

A policy manifesto from an influential conservative group with ties to the Trump administration, including Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, urges the dismantling of the Education Department and bringing God into American classrooms.


The “Education Reform Report” released by the Center for National Policy, a front for RADICAL conservative Christians with “ties to several top White House officials — including Education Secretary Betsy DeVos,” states:

We submit this report to the Donald Trump/Betsy DeVos administration with the hope that our organization may be of assistance with the restoration of education in America, in accordance with historic Judeo-Christian principles.

Let the brain washing begin. This people need a history lesson.
When God was in schools, the kids had more respect, manners and less mass shootings and deadly violence.

Evangelicals are SO frightened.

So sensitive.

Society is moving steadily away from their middle eastern beliefs.

Yet they somehow think legislation/executive orders will bring their godlet back.

Reality > Religion.

There is actually a documentary that just came out on Netflix called "The Family" about a secretive Christian group that has been working for years to control and influence DC.

I haven't watched it because I'm afraid I will be too alarmed that worse and more crap is going on in DC than we--I almost don't want to know that religious zealots may be controlling the government even more than we know.

Rather seditious to try to wipe out what the Founding Fathers planned for the country. But, as the US becomes more secular and diverse, they would have a more difficult time turning us into Iran.

There are many cultures where putting God in schools ensures fear-based subservience and obedience from children, only for them to grow up into adults that contribute to high rates of crimes, like Jamaica for example.

Like Obamacare. It was literally shoved down all of our throats and made healthcare for many crazy expensive. Obama asked congress to create it in Feb 2009, barely passed and signed into law March 2010. If forcing God in public schools was that big of a deal, it would be happening right now.
