A Complete New Faith Being Pushed On America -- At Taxpayer Expense

A Complete New Faith Being Pushed On America -- At Taxpayer Expense

No one takes on a public policy stance without some firmly held belief, some foundational principle or worldview which they embrace, and from which they reason.

What has been happening in our society for decades is a titanic battle between two powerful, competing worldviews.

As Dr. Ben Carson, a prominent pediatric neurosurgeon and outspoken advocate for traditional American values would put it:
“The secular progressive agenda, quite frankly, is at odds with the Judeo-Christian value system. If you just keep quiet about it, they win by default. I’m a person that believes in live and let live; but I don’t believe you should suppress what you believe so that you don’t create waves or cause a problem.”


Unfortunately, one of those worldviews has had the advantage of pretending to be a 'reasonable' belief that is 'Free from religion.'

And it has gained virtually unlimited access to your tax dollars.

We have been financing a takeover by a Christianity-replacing faith.

The new PC faith, the belief system of true-believing liberals, is actually a thoroughly developed, reasonable-sounding worldview. It is self-identified as a "Bold new faith" which must be "Established" in "All mankind's institutions and associations," in Humanist Manifesto I. But you will never hear a liberal, progressive, Leftist in America utter those words or make that religious identification.

Many citizens see the symptoms and the effects, but most people do not realize that there is a battle of major cultural significance, an all-out tug-of-war of ethics and ideology, happening in America. But the battle seems to be going to the progressive/Humanist side, and most citizens have no idea of the true Founding principles of America"

Contrast these Christian principles with this:


This is how the new secular/progressive 'faithful' are organized and how they behave:

1.-  The ACLU are the legal enforcers of the new faith (Obedience and Discipline), brandishing their flaming secular legal sword at any slightest whiff of Christianity that dares to pop up anywhere in public life.

The ACLU has been very visible and vocal in public policy struggles, though most citizens are mystified by the motives and strange positions taken by this so-called defender of 'rights.' The ACLU goes to court to enforce 'separation of church and state' found, NOT in America's Constitution, but found in the Humanist Manifestos and the old, failed Soviet Constitution, Article 52:

"The church shall be separate from the state, and the schools from the church."
It is ironic, insulting and tragic that we finance a school system that enforces this Soviet version of our 'rights.'

The ACLU and Humanism are philosophically and historically tied together.

Roger Baldwin, ACLU founder, stated categorically: "Communism is the goal!" He refused for the rest of his life to modify or retract this statement.

"In later years Baldwin occasionally wrote for The Humanist. On one occasion he reviewed a book for The Humanist by Corliss Lamont whose credentials as a Humanist include being named "Humanist of the Year" for 1977, being signatory to Humanist Manifesto II, and serving as honorary president of the AHA. Baldwin gave this evaluation of Lamont's book: "It reads like an expanded annual report of the Civil Liberties Bureau."(6)
In addition to Lamont's Humanist affiliations, he also sat on the ACLU board for many years, thus further demonstrating the compatibility of Humanism and the ACLU. (Eventually, Lamont did reject the ACLU because of its stand against communism.)

Baldwin served as Director of the ACLU until 1949, but thereafter continued to influence the Union as a member of the National Advisory Council." --

Mainstream News Media, Alphabet TV Networks, Big Print Journalists are the 'Ministers of Truth' (Preachers) of the new faith, and publishers of the will of the Democrat party. Recent evidence is the unashamed gratitude from Joe Biden and other Democrats for Lamestream 'news' media advocacy of anti-Constitution 'gun control' measures. Old-school journalists would be repulsed by such praise from government representatives.
Modern 'journalists' actually bask in it, preening over their politically correct 'reporting.'

Anyone who knows what journalism is supposed to be, how they are supposed to use First Amendment Freedom of the Press to scrutinize and expose government, should be sickened by Lamestream 'news' preachers.

The American Humanists are behind lawsuits to prevent county commissioners from daring to mention Jesus Christ and praying:

2.- 'Gay rights' activists are the shock troops (Onward, true-believing soldiers), the politically astute, PC Grand Inquisitors, the aggressive vanguard of the Humanists. Dare to question their 'Diversity!' mantra and you will face rage and possible lawsuits. How far will they push you? As far as they can.  These activists never hesitate to use the courts to push their agenda, even if it tramples Constitutional, First Amendment Freedoms:

"Meet Barronelle Stutzman -- who is being treated as Washington State’s Public Enemy No. 1.
Stutzman is a grandmother, a devout Southern Baptist and the owner of a small flower shop. The 70-year-old Christian is also opposed to gay marriage — a religious belief that could cost Stutzman her business, her life-savings and even her home.
A Washington judge ruled Feb. 18 that Stutzman, the owner of Arlene’s Flowers, violated the law when she refused to provide flowers to a same-sex couple for their wedding."

'Marriage' and other public policy concessions are simply used by homosexual activists as stepping stones and legal sledge hammers against straight society.

"“Marriage equality” is their hypocritical rallying cry. But the cat has been out of the bag for a long time, and everyone is fast beginning to realize that this is the most ridiculous thing they’ve ever heard. It’s nothing more than a godless demand for unrestricted debauchery. What they really want is not equality, but absolute cultural dominance. Their unmasked agenda involves the implementation of an oppressive double standard in which their “gay” Special Rights invariably squash our all-important Civil Rights. It’s the “gay” way or the highway.


'Even knowing that there are radicals in all movements, doesn’t lessen the startling admission recently by lesbian journalist Masha Gessen. On a radio show she actually admits that homosexual activists are lying about their radical political agenda. She says that they don’t want to access the institution of marriage; they want to radically redefine and eventually eliminate it.
Here is what she recently said on a radio interview:'
“It’s a no-brainer that (homosexual activists) should have the right to marry, but I also think equally that it’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist. …(F)ighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we are going to do with marriage when we get there — because we lie that the institution of marriage is not going to change, and that is a lie.
The institution of marriage is going to change, and it should change. And again, I don’t think it should exist. And I don’t like taking part in creating fictions about my life. That’s sort of not what I had in mind when I came out thirty years ago.
I have three kids who have five parents, more or less, and I don’t see why they shouldn’t have five parents legally… I met my new partner, and she had just had a baby, and that baby’s biological father is my brother, and my daughter’s biological father is a man who lives in Russia, and my adopted son also considers him his father. So the five parents break down into two groups of three… And really, I would like to live in a legal system that is capable of reflecting that reality, and I don’t think that’s compatible with the institution of marriage.”

"Why is homosexual marriage even wanted? Just why is it that some homosexuals are so insistent on marriage rights? As many homosexuals themselves admit, a major reason why they want marriage is not so much to be like heterosexuals, or because they want to abandon their more free and promiscuous lifestyle, but because of its symbolic value.
It will give them public recognition, approval and acceptance. This has long been the overriding goal of the homosexual lobby: complete social and public endorsement and approval. Thus by getting marriage rights, and, in turn, the last hurdle for homosexuals, full adoption rights, homosexuals will have achieved their longstanding goal: legitimizing the homosexual lifestyle.
As even Time magazine admitted, in an article on same-sex marriage, the real goal is complete social acceptance and validation: “Ultimately, of course, the battle for gay marriage has always been about more than winning the second-driver discount at the Avis counter. In fact, the individual who has done most to push same-sex marriage – a brilliant 43-year-old lawyer-activist named Evan Wolfson – doesn’t even have a boyfriend. He and the others who brought the marriage lawsuits of the past decade want nothing less than full social equality, total validation – not just the right to inherit a mother-in-law’s Cadillac. As Andrew Sullivan, the (also persistently single) intellectual force behind gay marriage, has written, ‘Including homosexuals within marriage would be a means of conferring the highest form of social approval imaginable’.”
One leading Australian homosexual activist puts it this way: “The argument is quite simple: marriage is the ultimate legitimation of equality, according same-sex relationships the same status as heterosexual ones. Essentially this is a symbolic claim, for there is a whole raft of ways in which the state regulates relationships outside formal marriage.”
Indeed, the bottom line of all homosexual activism is ultimately just that: complete social acceptance and approval. As some American activists put it back in 1989, “to gain straight tolerance and acceptance is not just a legitimate goal of gay activism, it must be the principal goal.”
This advocacy group constantly gives away it's focus on children, and following homosexuals 'marriage' victories will be a push for lowering 'age-of-consent' laws.  In the meantime, the indoctrination and special-pleading continues.  

This focus on youth has always been denied by pro-homosexual activists, but the fact is that they don't reproduce....They have to recruit, and they use government to do it.
I caught them back during the Governor Mike Lowry era, after having materials dished off to me by some frightened DSHS/CPS employees who absolutely did not want this kind of recruiting going on at taxpayer expense.
I exposed it, bringing it to the House Speaker and Senate Majority Leader in Olympia, alerting other pro-family Legislators and calling press conferences at the Capitol, providing press packets with copies of the actual SMI documentation.
It was all about pro-homosexual favoritism in government, but the one that really outraged and motivated me was the one that had DSHS bringing in adult homosexual and lesbian 'mentors' to 'counsel' minor children in the state's custody regarding their "emerging feelings and sexual orientation."
It was outright cruising on, recruiting of vulnerable kids, separated from their families and subject to any kind of treatment by homosexuals and lesbians, all financed by taxpayers.
Yes, Governor Lowry was embarrassed and forced to do take-backs, but I guarantee you that since that time the recruiting still goes on.
Perverted is the only thing you can call it. It exposes the true nature of the homosexual political agenda.
I had my home vandalized, my wife would receive dozens of threatening phone calls when the opposition knew I was gone at meetings, I had death threats and threats to blow up or burn down buildings or businesses where I was holding meetings, my church was surrounded by 450 pro-homosexual activists, banging drums, blowing noisemakers, performing mock sex acts, throwing rocks at cars, threatening congregants...... These are model citizens.
And since those days they have not let up. They continue to push.
Now they're suing a grandmother, trying to run her out of business for daring to follow her firmly held religious beliefs.
"That is not the state’s intent, and the campaign will be renamed “Sexual Orientation Initiative,” Rodriguez said.
References to affirmative action for state hiring or other purposes “must be removed,” he said. The state’s insistence on not allowing discrimination or harassment of gays remains solid and will remain a part of state government training, but no special rights are intended, he said.
***"He also removed a section requiring DSHS to hire people to provide outreach and advocacy for gay clients."***
That's how Lamestream 'news' media reported the 'mentors' for minor children, teaching them how to get involved in homosexual behavior, making contacts and grooming them. Sick.

3.- Environmental extremists are the preening, 'righteousness' arm of the Humanists, 'saving the planet' (Salvation) whether you want their messianic ministry and their Big Brother home-peeping and regulation of your shower head, your light bulbs, your grocery bags, and garbage-monitoring e-chips forced on you or not. Insisting that we leave our own vast natural gas, coal and oil resources in the ground, so we can become third-world beggars like the rest of the 'world community.' And their beliefs are killing our economy, as we enrich our enemies. "Sustainable" is a worship word that means regulate you, tax you and diminish your quality of life, all for a hoax:

The federal government is using 'environmental concerns' and 'endangered species' claims to grab land from ranchers and farmers from Texas to California:

Pachauri's resignation letter on religion: 'For me the protection of Planet Earth, the survival of all species and sustainability of our ecosystems is more than a mission. It is my religion and my dharma.'

Those who refuse to believe must be punished by 'climate change' Inquisitors:

4.- The 'Choice' crowd makes certain that the blood of innocent unborn children (Sacraments) is offered up to their cause. Their noble efforts are not to be questioned, and regarding their ghoulish practices...just do not think about the 50 Million babies butchered so far. Those defending abortion must defend the acts of this man, and laugh with him about the ease of killing the innocent:

The ruthless, relentless, aggressive nature of the abortion movment is often hidden and softened by Lamestream 'news' media, but whenever the widespread grip of pro-death activistism is exposed we see the ugly face of those who absolutely insist on the 'medical procedure' of killing innocent little babies.Even trusted, 'cute' groups of youth, such as the Girl Scouts, are cynically used, indoctrinated and used as front groups for powerful, well-organized groups in the death lobby, such as Planned Parenthood.

They recruited other people's children, using public schools and sex education.

5.- Big Government, Obamacare (Ministering to the Sick) will create disastrous results, with years-long waiting lists, neglected and abused patients and IRS-controlled death panels, but many will still believe that government is their good shepherd:

It has already been tested. We know the results of nationalized healthcare. But faith is more important...

6.- Gun Control - (Spreading Peace and Love) Every school shooter violates multiple layers of existing gun laws, but the progressive/Humanist true-believer is convinced that making even more laws to restrict Constitutional Freedoms - will somehow enforce a 'just', peaceful and loving society and school environment.
Washington State Representative Liz Pike and Bob Larimer in a recent ABC TV affiliate debate on Your Voice, Your Vote, Concealed Carry In Public Schools:


7.-"Giving back" - Liberal politicians enforce charitable 'tithing' (Sacrificial giving) through confiscatory taxation, scolding about 'fairness' and equitable 'redistribution' of wealth and resources, then use the money to advance Humanist principles and grow their influence through tyrannical public policies.

8.- Taxpayer-financed education - K-12 and university - provide training in the correct manner of thinking and behaving (Sunday School 5 days per week, and Missionary outreach), constantly demonstrating or subtly hinting that Christianity is primitive, dangerous, irrelevant or 'harmful,' and sanitizing any last vestige of a Christian heritage from our society, and teaching students to earnestly - erroneously - chant that "America was founded on freedom from religion!"

Teachers Unions - from the N.E.A. and down through outspoken activists in their state and local unions - and 'International Unions' are the fraternal organizations (Faith-based organizations) associated with the Religious Left, they give votes, money and activist shoe leather to the Humanist movement. They are also the most powerful, influential lobbyists in D.C. and your state Legislature, making all kinds of legislation, not just education, their business. Politicians are ordinarily afraid to defy them. That is one of the reasons for their vitriol and outrage against Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin:

"I am convinced that the battle for humankind's future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers that correctly perceive their role as proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being... The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and new -- the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism, resplendent with the promise of a world in which the never-realized Christian ideal of 'love thy neighbor' will finally be achieved." -- "A Religion For A New Age," The Humanist magazine, January-February 1983 [Volume 43, Number 1]

There is nothing benign about the push to change the thinking of other people's children in public schools.

Here, Texas 6th graders are tasked with designing Socialist flags for a new Socialist nation:

"Does that sound like we're sympathizing with those types of countries?" Sen. Larry Taylor (R-Friendswood) asked regarding the flag assignment. He later said that he found it “very egregious as a Texas and an American.”
"Committee Chairman Dan Patrick, R-Houston, called it 'a mess.' One witness compared the system to 'mind control,' and an algebra teacher wept as he described quitting because he felt he was 'aiding and abetting a crime' by using CSCOPE in his classroom," the AP reported." Founding signer of Humanist Manifesto I, John Dewey, is an icon of education. He made it plain that he understands that his new belief system is specifically religious:

"In the degree in which we cease to depend upon belief in the supernatural, selection is enlightened and choice can be made in behalf of ideals whose inherent relations to conditions and consequences are understood."
-Preface To Philosophy, "Humanism: A Modern Religion," John Dewey, MacMillan, 1946, page 396.

Imagine that!

"Choice and enlightenment," buzzwords of the new faith, introduced in the 1930's.

Along with 'diversity, world community, consenting adults, cultural pluralism, multiculturalism, social justice, redistribution, lifelong learning, separation of church and state and other worship words and phrases of the Religious Left, these are saturated into public education.

At the same time, anyone keeping abreast of current events in recent decades could not help but notice the relentless, fanatical effort to sanitize public schools of any last remnant of Christian beliefs, prayers, observances or faith-based displays such as the Ten Commandments.

Just for fun and in keeping with the 'Season': Does your child or grandchild's school have a Christmas Break, or a Christmas Concert?

I didn't think so.  They are now Winter Breaks, or Holiday Concerts.

Fairly recent changes, and symptomatic of the secular progressive/Humanist takeover. Eliminating these 'harmful influences' that depend upon a belief in the supernatural, in Dewey's terms, is a sign of 'progress' in society.

For any who remain skeptical about the influence of Humanism on education, just plug in the terms Life Long Learning, a comma, and Humanism into Google. You will get a tremendous amount of documentation that will demonstrate just how fully saturated with this new belief system all branches of education - and the training of educators - really are.

9.- The dominant media culture - and entertainment media - are the high priests of the faith (Evangelism), always attacking the 'Religious Right,' but never once doing an expose' on the 'Religious Left.' Have you ever seen a 'news' program about the Religious Left?

10.- Gatherings of Humanist-indoctrinated faithful (Worship services), usually involve someone quoting disjointed poetry about someone's village and someone elses' children, or chanting protests and Humanist mantras. They can include inspiring music by special guests, and ghastly spectacles such as those screaming, chanting crowds, wearing theme T-shirts at the memorial services of innocent people gunned down in Arizona.

The gathering at the Capitol Mall in Wisconsin, complete with the Communist Party marching in solidarity with teachers unions and 'international unions,' along with Barack Hussein Obama's own campaign organization (Organizing For America), are also participating in a noisy worship service. Their self-righteousness is on full display. Not much decorum or solemn assembly at such services? Well, it is after all, a different kind of faith.

What does 'Zero Tolerance' in public schools really mean?

Common Core is under fire across America, not just for the convoluted, confusing, time-comsuming pretzel logic of its 'solutions' to student difficulties in math, but because it is another liberal, agenda-driven means of indoctrinating public school children into one 'approved' standard across the nation, instead of parental and local standards. Carnegie and other axe-grinding
As Michelle Malkin points out in "Teachers Union 101 -- A Is For Agitation": “Agitation,” of course, is a full-time job for teachers union officials in New York and across the country. As the New York Post reported exclusively this week, the city Department of Education compensates some 1,500 teachers for their union activities and also subsidizes other teachers who take their places in the classroom:

“It’s a sweetheart deal that costs taxpayers an extra $9 million a year to pay fill-ins for instructors who are sprung — at full pay — to carry out responsibilities for the United Federation of Teachers.”

The UFT soldiers “collect top pay and fringe benefits, but work just one class period a day.” Nice non-work if you can get it. NYSUT, by the way, is the parent of the double-dipping UFT, which itself rakes in $126 million in member dues — but only reimburses the city less than $1 million out of the $9 million it costs to take teachers out of the classroom to serve at the altar of Big Labor.

UFT is also a chapter of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), which spent nearly $2 million on the election of President Barack Obama in 2008. (In return, you may recall, the Obama administration granted the UFT one of its coveted health care Waivers for Favors last year — exempting the behemoth union in a sweetheart deal from the federal mandate’s costly rules on phasing out annual health coverage limits.)

The forced-dues racket is big business for teachers unions crying poor. In Ohio, the state’s education association siphoned nearly $23 million from rank-and-file school workers to fatten up its union staff. The Ohio Education Association donated more than $1.6 million to Democratic campaigns last year and tossed off five-figure checks each to union and progressive allies in Oregon, Colorado and Policy Matters Ohio, a left-wing think tank funded by radical billionaire George Soros.

At the federal level, the National Education Association squandered $13 million in teachers’ dues on every pet liberal cause and crony from the AFL-CIO ($150,000) and AFSCME ($90,000), to the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate ($200,000), Media Matters for America ($100,000) and the White House brigade at Health Care for America Now! ($450,000).

The goals of the teachers union machine are not academic excellence, professional development and fairness. As former NEA official John Lloyd explained it: “You cannot possibly understand NEA without understanding Saul Alinsky. If you want to understand NEA, go to the library and get ‘Rules for Radicals.’”

The goals are student indoctrination, social upheaval and perpetual agitation in pursuit of bigger government and spending without restraint. No wonder the signature “solidarity” color of the teachers union protests this month is red."

To see the overwhelming influence of Humanist beliefs on higher education, teaching teachers what to believe and teach, do a Google search on this:

'Life long learning, Humanism'

You will be amazed at the vast amount of 'legitimate' material being pumped at those who will have influence, and who will teach children.

Some, of course, come right through our taxpayer-financed Department of Education:

"Humanistic Education For Life-Long Learning"

"There is growing in the United States what might modestly be called a movement towards humanistic education."

UNM Division of Continuing Education’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute
Course #19845 - Humanism: Secular World View, Section SAA

Part I: What is Humanism?
Part II: Humanism and Democracy
Part III: Evolution of the Human Social Order
Part IV: A Very Brief History Humanist Thought
Part V: Are Science & Reason Always the Answer?

But the appearance of Humanism and its focus in education are just localized and temporary, right?


It is a major focus, and has been for decades, at the United Nations:

"Since its creation in 1945, UNESCO’s mission has
been to contribute to the building of peace, poverty
eradication, lasting development and intercultural
dialogue, with education as one of its principal
activities to achieve this aim. The Organization’s other
elds of action include the natural sciences, the social
and human sciences, culture, and communication
and information.
Today, UNESCO is committed to a holistic and
humanistic vision of quality education worldwide..."

"It acts as a powerful tool to achieve UNESCO’s
priorities and increase the Organization’s visibility.
ASPnet’s priorities are to promote EFA and disseminate
examples of quality education in practice, with an
emphasis on education for sustainable development,
peace and human rights, and intercultural learning. The
network further serves as an international laboratory for
new educational practices which reinforce the humanistic,
ethical and international dimensions of education."

It is all faith-based.

11.- Global Evangelistic Outreach.  In Humanist Manifesto II we find the ultimate goal: "World Community TWELFTH: We deplore the division of humankind on nationalistic grounds. We have reached a turning point in human history where the best option is to transcend the limits of national sovereignty and to move toward the building of a world community in which all sectors of the human family can participate. Thus we look to the development of a system of world law and a world order based upon transnational federal government. This would appreciate cultural pluralism and diversity."

Lest anyone think this taxpayer-financed push is an undocumented claim, here's an elected representative speaking plainly about it:

The Ruling Elite in Washington D.C. routinely expose their belief that America's borders are mere inconveniences, and should not be considered to have any hard and fast, Consitutional significance:

In the meantime, the naive and uninformed (Through purposeful censorship by 'news' media and the edustocracy), are trampled, totally overwhelmed by the insistent, uniform, relentless nature of this full-scale, taxpayer-financed attack on traditional American values and Bible-believing Christianity.{Having been involved in exposing Humanist beliefs since the early 80's, my personal experience is that 'news' media and educators will stonewall, deny or attack, when confronted with information on Humanism and its influence}

All of the groups named and noted above consistently chant the 'Diversity, Choice, World Community, Cultural Pluralism, Consenting Adults, Sustainability, Redistribution, Separation' mantras of the Humanist Manifestos. If you study the issue, you will find that none of these PC worship words were used in 'the news,' in city councils, county commissions, state legislatures, Congress, the courts, public schools and college campuses, entertainment, music or public policy battles until AFTER the Humanist Manifestos were promulgated, first in 1933, then revised and expanded in 1973.

The outcomes of the influence of Humanist goals and beliefs on American society have been devastating:

You don't think it is widespread and growing?

12.- Ideological Purity:  Liberalism is the political ideology  that provides a smokescreen and a front for Humanism in our culture. As accurately exposed by Matt Barber, liberalism violates and teaches its unwitting followers to violate all Ten Commandments.

This has wracked our culture with social and economic problems that may prove to be insurmountable:

The old Christian ethic still lingers in America, and its verifiable, historical basis can not be hidden or denied. Secular progressive 'historians' argue strenuously that America has never been a 'Christian nation' and that our Founders were skeptical of religion and deliberately 'neutral' toward Christianity. This is the view taught in our public schools, across the nation.

In the Declaration of Independence, however, the Founders made their highest appeal to our Creator for their just cause, noting that all mankind's Liberty comes from Him.

After the Revolution, they struggled to find a form of government that would provide freedom from tyranny, limit government's powers and offer the most opportunity for citizens to 'pursue happiness.' And aged and wise Benjamin Franklin rose to address the Continental Congress and remind them of the help that was available to them:

Delivered Thursday, June 28, 1787, Philadelphia, PA

"Mr. President:
The small progress we have made after 4 or five weeks close attendance & continual reasonings with each other -- our different sentiments on almost every question, several of the last producing as many noes as ays, is methinks a melancholy proof of the imperfection of the Human Understanding. We indeed seem to feel our own wont of political wisdom, since we have been running about in search of it. We have gone back to ancient history for models of government, and examined the different forms of those Republics which having been formed with the seeds of their own dissolution now no longer exist. And we have viewed Modern States all round Europe, but find none of their Constitutions suitable to our circumstances.
In this situation of this Assembly groping as it were in the dark to find political truth, and scarce able to distinguish it when to us, how has it happened, Sir, that we have not hitherto once thought of humbly applying to the Father of lights to illuminate our understandings? In the beginning of the contest with G. Britain, when we were sensible of danger we had daily prayer in this room for the Divine Protection. -- Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a Superintending providence in our favor. To that kind providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? or do we imagine that we no longer need His assistance.
I have lived, Sir, a long time and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth -- that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings that "except the Lord build they labor in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall be become a reproach and a bye word down to future age. And what is worse, mankind may hereafter this unfortunate instance, despair of establishing Governments by Human Wisdom, and leave it to chance, war, and conquest.
I therefore beg leave to move -- that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessings on our deliberations, be held in this Assembly every morning before we proceed to business, and that one or more of the Clergy of this City be requested to officiate in that service." --Benjamin Franklin

Would Benjamin Franklin have quoted Jesus Christ, would he have reminded the Founders of answered prayers, would he have made such a speech, if he really did not believe in God?

Consider the significance of the following, also:

"Many people are surprised to learn that the United States Capitol regularly served as a church building; a practice that began even before Congress officially moved into the building and lasted until well after the Civil War. Below is a brief history of the Capitol's use as a church, and some of the prominent individuals who attended services there.
The cornerstone of the Capitol was laid by President George Washington in 1793., but it was not until the end of 1800 that Congress actually moved into the building. According to the congressional records for late November of 1800, Congress spent the first few weeks organizing the Capitol rooms, committees, locations, etc. Then, on December 4, 1800, Congress approved the use of the Capitol building as a church building. 1
The approval of the Capitol for church was given by both the House and the Senate, with House approval being given by Speaker of the House, Theodore Sedgwick, and Senate approval being given by the President of the Senate, Thomas Jefferson. Interestingly, Jefferson's approval came while he was still officially the Vice- President but after he had just been elected President."

"Jefferson attended church at the Capitol while he was Vice President5 and also throughout his presidency. The first Capitol church service that Jefferson attended as President was a service preached by Jefferson's friend, the Rev. John Leland, on January 3, 1802. 6Significantly, Jefferson attended that Capitol church service just two days after he penned his famous letter containing the "wall ofseparation between church and state" metaphor.
U. S. Rep. Manasseh Cutler, who also attended church at the Capitol, recorded in his own diary that "He [Jefferson] and his family have constantly attended public worship in the Hall." 7Mary Bayard Smith, another attendee at the Capitol services, confirmed: "Mr. Jefferson, during his whole administration, was a most regular attendant." 8 She noted that Jefferson even had a designated seat at the Capitol church: "The seat he chose the first Sabbath, and the adjoining one (which his private secretary occupied), were ever afterwards by the courtesy of the congregation, left for him and his secretary." 9 Jefferson was so committed to those services that he would not even allow inclement weather to dissuade him; as Rep. Cutler noted: "It was very rainy, but his [Jefferson's] ardent zeal brought him through the rain and on horseback to the Hall." 10 Other diary entries confirm Jefferson's attendance in spite of bad weather. 11"  - 

Surprised?  How many of us never heard or read one word of this factual information while attending public school or college?  Why? Because our instructors were too busy convincing us that America's most influential  Founders were  'deists,' 'neutral' or even hostile to Christianity. It should insult the intellectual honesty of any citizen to realize the censorship that has been inflicted on us.  

In our modern day we have such technology and resources. Imagine what we could do for students, how they could excel, if only we were educating them instead of babying and indoctrinating them.

We think of the Founders as geniuses,  and so they were.

While they relied on their Creator in the greatest human appeal to Liberty ever written (Declaration of Independence), they all had educations that would make the average public school teacher or college instructor blush.

They and their contemporaries were living proof that high expectations, rigid qualifications, produce well-educated young people.

Imagine any of your high school or college students mastering any of this, and remember that in the Founders' day, there was no such thing as public education.

The reason they later mandated education  was specifically so that students would never forget what price had been paid for Freedom, and so that they would never give in to the appeal to create or live under a massive, centralized governmental authority.

The Founders had been there and done that, and they paid in blood to get out from under it!

A Few Declarations of Founding Fathers and Early Statesmen on Jesus, Christianity, and the Bible
(This list is by no means exhaustive; many other Founders could be included, and even with those who appear below, additional quotes could have been used.)
John Adams

The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.1
Without religion, this world would be something not fit to be mentioned in polite company: I mean hell.2
The Christian religion is, above all the religions that ever prevailed or existed in ancient or modern times, the religion of wisdom, virtue, equity and humanity.3
Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited. . . . What a Eutopia – what a Paradise would this region be!4
I have examined all religions, and the result is that the Bible is the best book in the world.5

  •  John Hancock 
Sensible of the importance of Christian piety and virtue to the order and happiness of a state, I cannot but earnestly commend to you every measure for their support and encouragement.37
He called on the entire state to pray “that universal happiness may be established in the world [and] that all may bow to the scepter of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the whole earth be filled with His glory.”38
He also called on the State of Massachusetts to pray . . .
  • that all nations may bow to the scepter of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and that the whole earth may be filled with his glory.39
  • that the spiritual kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ may be continually increasing until the whole earth shall be filled with His glory.40
  • to confess their sins and to implore forgiveness of God through the merits of the Savior of the World.41
  • to cause the benign religion of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to be known, understood, and practiced among all the inhabitants of the earth.42
  • to confess their sins before God and implore His forgiveness through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.43
  • that He would finally overrule all events to the advancement of the Redeemer’s kingdom and the establishment of universal peace and good will among men.44
  • that the kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ may be established in peace and righteousness among all the nations of the earth.45
  • that with true contrition of heart we may confess our sins, resolve to forsake them, and implore the Divine forgiveness, through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, our Savior. . . . And finally to overrule all the commotions in the world to the spreading the true religion of our Lord Jesus Christ in its purity and power among all the people of the earth.46
John Hart

[T]hanks be given unto Almighty God therefore, and knowing that it is appointed for all men once to die and after that the judgment [Hebrews 9:27] . . . principally, I give and recommend my soul into the hands of Almighty God who gave it and my body to the earth to be buried in a decent and Christian like manner . . . to receive the same again at the general resurrection by the mighty power of God.47
Patrick Henry

Being a Christian… is a character which I prize far above all this world has or can boast.48
The Bible… is a book worth more than all the other books that were ever printed.49
Righteousness alone can exalt [America] as a nation...Whoever thou art, remember this; and in thy sphere practice virtue thyself, and encourage it in others.50
The great pillars of all government and of social life [are] virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone, that renders us invincible.51
This is all the inheritance I can give to my dear family. The religion of Christ can give them one which will make them rich indeed.52

Adding more official well-researched affirmations regarding America's Founding:   After an exhaustive search of America's official documents, speeches and even private letters, the United States Supreme Court made this statement: 

“These and many other matters which might be noticed, add a volume of unofficial declarations to the mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation.” --U. S. Supreme Court 1892.

They may not have had computers or Google, but the court used available documents and the best research techniques of their day and came to this conclusion.

Our forefathers came to these shores “For the glory of God, and the advancement of the Christian faith,” (Mayflower Compact), when the Church of England attempted to force Bible-believers to only preach and hear government-approved sermons. Their firm resolve and impulse for Freedom eventually resulted in a world-changing Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights which listed first of all, freedom of faith-based beliefs: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

With our own tax dollars and government power, the burden of an 'Established' new faith of ‘Diversity’ that actually insists on conformity to the beliefs of secular progressive ideology is now being unilaterally dropped on our shoulders.

Shall we participate and be shackled by a new, government-approved faith, or shall we take our stand with all People of the Book, rejecting dictatorial government edicts that require us to violate our own beliefs?

An example of how the secular faith works out in public policies:

Humanism advances socialism/marxism because only such control of economic matters can yield control of 'all mankind's institutions and associations' as Humanists have declared, and Humanism has helped the 'multiculturalism' necessary to force it on Americans:

Having been shown these things, no one can plead ignorance or attempt to employ false equivalences regarding the Religious Right and the Religious Left. Can you guess why you've never read, heard or seen a 'news' story exposing the Religious Left? Why would religious fanatics expose their own destructive goals?

America's future hinges on which worldview our society ultimately embraces. If we allow the wrong choice to be thrust on us, we will not survive as a nation. The Humanist movement is evil, manipulative, tyrannical and wholly dishonest. It will destroy us if we allow it.

When you hear 'Diversity' being chanted, know that Humanism is being preached.

For those who doubt the existence of this new religion, here is how they style themselves in a soon-to-be-launched national advertising campaign:

Note that the new evangelists do not simply push their new faith, they first attack Bible-believing Christianity with out-of-context quotes. But at least they are finally coming out in the open, instead of indoctrinating from behind the scenes as they have done for decades.

Once again, the Humanist effort is shown to be a full-on attack on Christianity.For decades the Left denied Humanism.Now it's out in the open, 'saving' people from faith.  The following advertisement for a March 2015 meeting of Humanists across the Columbia River from me in Portland Oregon touts a sort of 'film' festival, attacking Bible believing people or 'rescuing'  them.
Hostility toward Christianity is a major feature of Humanism.

Still skeptical that Humanism is a religion? Recall the published words of Humanism's founder and progenitor, John Dewey, explaining that Humanism is a religion and calling for it to replace a 'belief in the supernatural.'  See Torcaso v. Watkins, U.S. Supreme Court, 1961, where Justice Black remarks that Atheism and Humanism are indeed religious beliefs.
