School tells Bible club not to advertise ... anywhere
A school superintendant in Oklahoma faces a lawsuit today for not only forbidding a community-led Christian club from placing fliers in the elementary school, but also for allegedly telling the Kids for Christ program not to advertise in the community either, lest it "stir up trouble."
The Owasso Kids for Christ club has been conducting voluntary, before-school Bible studies and a variety of family activities for students and parents at the Northeast Elementary School in Owasso, Okla., since November of last year.
But in April, when the club requested permission to distribute a take-home flier for students and parents advertising a Christian martial arts event, the flier's phrase "Reaching the world for Christ!" caught the attention of District Superintendant Dr. Clark Ogilvie....
"It is capable of exact demonstration that if every party in the State has the right of excluding from the public schools whatever he does not believe to be true, then he that believes most must give way to him that believes least, and then he that believes least must give way to him that believes absolutely nothing, no matter how small a minority the atheists or agnostics may be.
"It is self-evident that on this scheme, if it is consistently and persistently carried out in all parts of the country, the United States system of national popular education will be the most efficient and wide instrument for the propagation of atheism the world has ever seen."
"The allowing of such activities to impressionable elementary students during the regular school day and while school is in session would certainly raise the issue as to endorsement of religion,"
However when a nation refuses to acknowledge it allegiance to the One True and Living God testified of by the Scriptures of both the Old and New Testament; they by default allow Humanism to reign, and its politically correct underlings, may now in essence determine the religion of the state. Humanism makes man his own god and therefore he may worship whatever pagan deity pleases him or no deity at all, if he prefer. The fear of God is not before his eyes.
James 2:18-20 "Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?" Ephesians 2:9-10 "Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them."
