The Saddest Day In America!
"...when thou shalt have eaten and be full; Then beware lest thou forget the LORD..." -Deuteronomy 6:11-12

Without a doubt, the saddest day in America was June 25, 1962, when prayer was kicked out of the American public school system. It was one year later that the Word of God was also removed. Some people today ignorantly claim that there is no ban on prayer in the public schools... don't you believe it! Teachers are PROHIBITED from leading the students in prayer, especially in "Jesus' name." In fact, the ACLU Wants Teachers Jailed For Classroom Prayers. The Atheists are adamantly against even student led prayer in our public schools. According to religioustolerance.org:
"The compulsive nature of prayer. Although most state laws which attempt to allow school prayer usually permit the student to excuse themselves and wait in the hall, the courts still see an element of compulsion. By separating themselves from the rest of the class, the student risks later harassment and abuse by fellow students.
The risk of religious indoctrination. The 1st amendment of the U.S. constitution states that there shall be no law regarding the establishment of religion. The courts view prayer in the classroom to be one example of the government approving one religion over another." -SOURCE
In other words, prayer offended some people, so it had to go. Get out God, and take your Book with you! This is how America has treated the very God who gave us our prosperity and liberty. The founding fathers would clean house in Washington if they knew what these idiots have done today. There would be hangings. Our government leaders are woefully guilty of hypocrisy and corruption, yielding to the Satanic agenda of the wicked--public school teachers are prohibited from leading students in mandatory prayer and Bible reading; BUT, the unproven, unscientific, and purely theoretical fable of evolution is MANDATORY!
Teachers who MUST teach the LIE of evolution, which is OFFENSIVE to many parents, are hypocritically prohibited from teaching students the Bible. Why is evolution FORCED on the whole group? It is clear that America is being deliberately subverted from within by the wicked. Whereas the phrase "one nation under God" was added to our pledge of allegiance in 1954 to thwart Communism, it was just 8 years later that prayer was eliminated from the daily lives of America's school children. That is so ironic, and sad--we are destroying ourselves!
America Went to Hell in the 1960s
All of this wickedness skyrocketed in the 1960's, beginning with the removal of school-sponsored prayer and Bible reading. Think about it. Feminism (i.e., wives rebelling against their husbands) has skyrocketed since the 1960's. Abortion (the brutal murdering of children) began in the 1960's. Colorado was the first state to legalize abortion in 1967. The Church of Satan was founded on June 6, 1966 (666). America went to Hell in the 1960's... and rock-n-roll music was the poison which inspired it. Because of the Devil's music, America is today on the brink of moral destruction! The entire rock-n-roll lifestyle is anti-Bible, anti-God, anti-family, anti-country, and anti-morality. Rock-n-roll is the Devil's favorite religion. It's preachers are called "rock stars." It's message is saturated with rebellion, immorality, and hatred of Biblical Christianity.
America's moral decline rapidly accelerated following the U.S. Supreme Court's removal of prayer and the Word of God from our nation's schools. On June 25, l962, 39 million students were forbidden to do what they and their predecessors had been doing since the founding of our nation - publicly calling upon the name of the Lord at the beginning of each school day. Why should God bless America?
America Has Forgotten God!
What the Communists could not accomplish by force, they have accomplished through subversion. Few people realize that civil rights leader, Martin Luther King Jr. was involved in at least 60 Communist fronts. King was an imposter, and no friend of the American people. Since King's death, his widow, Coretta King, has traveled around America endorsing homosexual rights. Real Christian people, huh? Most Americans, being the intellectually lazy and complacent people they are, have rallied around Martin Luther King Jr. as some kind of hero. Don't think it coincidence that a Communist has a national holiday observed in his honor. Most Americans are acceptant today of the same Communism that their grandparents feared 50 years ago. America is largely Communist already, and the forming Police State will be the rooster that crows one day, when we realize that we have lost our freedoms.
Read Karl Marx's TEN PLANKS of the Communist manifesto. Plank 10 called for a public school system. Plank 5 called for a Federal Reserve bank. I'm not making this stuff up folks. We are living in an increasingly Communist country and don't even realize it. A teacher in California recently banned the Declaration of Independence from his classroom because it mentioned God. America is soon headed for a police state! If you don't believe me, then listen to Congressman Ron Paul. Listen to Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. Turn off the TV and start reading alternative news sources on the internet, and you WILL learn the truth (if you dare).
America has abandoned God! It's increasingly getting harder to find genuine Christians who have a zeal for the truth, and an earnest desire to contend for the faith. Very few Christians care enough about the souls of lost sinners to speak out against the evil Catholic Church, and expose it for what it truly is--a FALSE RELIGION! Catholics are guilty of idolatry and Mary worship. If you don't believe it, a picture is worth a thousand words.
America has been blessed of God more than any other nation throughout history. Tragically, just as the nine healed lepers who didn't appreciate what Jesus did for them, America has forgotten God... "And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?" (Luke 17:15-17). Nothing is different today. I dare say 1 out of 10 Americans are truly thankful to God for their health, prosperity, and freedom. I recently saw an advertisement, at a business, from their worker's union which read... "Ten reasons to be thankful this Thanksgiving."
Sadly, God was not on the list. America is a mess! Our government leaders are corrupt. Our corporations are corrupt. Our churches are corrupt. Our people are corrupt. We value saving our nation's eagles more than America's children. In 2001, a man received 9-months in prison for killing an eagle; yet, doctors conspire with pregnant mothers to kill their own children and still remain respectable citizens. God's Word condemns abortion as murder (Exodus 20:13). Our same courts which charge mothers with first-degree murder for drinking excessive alcohol while pregnant, permit the willful and premeditated murder of children! Where is justice?
Sin Undermines Any Nation!
Yes, June 25th, 1962 just may be the saddest day in American history. After all the blessings which God has bestowed upon this once honorable nation, we have expressed our ingratitude and contempt by discouraging children from praying to the Lord and reading the Bible. Let's face it, the Atheists and God-haters won't be satisfied until every mention of God is obliterated. First the Atheists wanted their rights, then the feminists, then the abortionists, then the pornographers, then the homosexuals, then the pederasts from NAMBLA, what next? Where will this insane perversion of morality and truth, in the name of "rights," take us as a nation?
The public school system was born out of an antichrist, antifamily, and anticountry mentality. Here's a couple quotes from the godless G. Brock Chisholm:
"To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family tradition, national patriotism, and religious dogmas." —George Brock Chisholm
"The re-interpretation and eventually eradication of the concept of right and wrong which has been the basis of child training, the substitution of intelligent and rational thinking for faith in the certainties of the old people, these are the belated objectives of practically all effective psychotherapy." —George Brock Chisholm
Wake up parents! There is a conspiracy to brainwash your child with godless New World Order thinking. It is no frivolous decision that prayer and Bible reading were removed from the public school system; but an evil conspiracy, founded upon the sicko thinking of God-haters like George Brock Chisholm, the first head of the World Health Organization. Chisholm's plan has been flawlessly implemented into the American public school system. Here's what Gloria Steinem, founder of Ms. Magazine, had to say about America's school children...
"By the year 2000, we will, I hope, raise our children to believe in human potential, not God." —Gloria Steinem, women's rights activist
"It's an incredible con job when you think of it, to believe something now in exchange for life after death. Even corporations with all their reward systems don't try to make it posthumous." —Gloria Steinem, women's rights activist
What a rebellious and foolish woman. No woman should ever buy Ms. Magazine, it is demonic. Tragically, Steinem has a cult following of American women. She has also appeared extensively in Cosmopolitan magazine. Ms. Magazine recently posted the names of thousands of women who admitted to having abortions before Roe vs. Wade in an attempt to justify abortion...
The "We Had Abortions" petition appears in the October 2006 issue as part of the issue's cover story. The petition contains signatures of over 5,000 women declaring that they had an abortion and were "unashamed of (the) decision", including actresses Amy Brenneman and Kathy Najimy, comedienne Carol Leifer, and Steinem herself. —SOURCE
This is so evil. Gloria Steinem is in trouble with God. Only God knows how many children have been aborted because of her, how many divorces she has caused, how many homes she has destroyed with her ungodly influence, et cetera. She won't be smiling in Hell. Steinem and Chisholm are just two examples of how Satan is ruthlessly subverting America's morals, beliefs, lifestyles, and attitudes. God help us as believers to rise up against such evildoers with the WORD OF GOD.
America's Christians Need Humility, Prayer, and Repentance!
Lest you think prayer no big deal, please consider the invitation from God in 2nd Chronicles 7:14-15... "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place." Listen folks, if any part of America is going to be salvaged, it will be God's Children that do it. The heathen aren't going to preach the Gospel. The wicked aren't going to contend for the Biblical faith. If we, as genuine Christians, don't serve our God by fighting against evil, then who will?
2nd Chronicles 7:14 is progressive, i.e., we won't pray unless we humble ourselves first, and we can't seek God's face without prayer, and people who live in sin haven't sought God. So the first thing we need is humility. America is proud. Christians today are extremely proud--so proud that many are trying to justify devilish Christian rock, others are claiming that it's ok for women to dress immodestly in pants, and still others are trying to justify sinful divorce by twisting the Scriptures around. Few Christians today sincerely pray to God, because they are living in sin. Most professed Christians today are experiencing religion without obtaining the power of God.
They are living with spiritual blinders on. These are the ignorant ones who praise George W. Bush as a man of God, when he has openly denied Jesus Christ and has blasphemed Jesus Christ by claiming that Islam worships the SAME GOD as Christians. If more believers would humble themselves in prayer, and seek God in truth (John 4:24), then they would awake to the wickedness of our day, and find a renewed passion to please the Lord Jesus Christ by taking a stand against evil. Hebrews 1:9 informs us that Jesus HATED iniquity! Psalm 97:10 instructs all believers to HATE evil. The average believer today is fascinated by this sinful world, and has been choked by the cares and riches of this life (Luke 8:14). All that will matter 100 years from now, as born again Christians, is what we did with our life for Jesus Christ and the Gospel's sake.
Let us ring aloud the necessity of prayer in these dark days! Let us not be weary in well doing... "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not" (Galatians 6:9). If America's believers are proud, backslidden, and living in sin--then how can we expect the unsaved to come to Christ for salvation? Proof of what I am saying is the deafening silence of America's churches concerning homosexuality, Harry Potter's witchcraft, abortion, and the blatant evils in The White House. Christians have gone soft on sin! Abortion has become commonplace. Homosexuality is becoming less and less offensive. Harry Potter is just another movie. Folks, we need a revival in America concerning the sinfulness of sin, "...that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful."
It is the Word of God that makes sin EXCEEDINGLY SINFUL. Is it any wonder that the perverted New International Version (NIV) of the Bible completely removes the word "sodomite" from it's pages? It's not surprising when you learn that the same parent company that publishes the NIV also publishes The Satanic Bible and The Joy of Gay Sex. Tragically, the NIV has become the MOST popular bible in the world. The NIV even removes the word "begotten" from John 3:16, thus attacking the deity of Jesus Christ. According to the NIV, Jesus is no longer EQUAL with the Father in Philippians 2:6. The NIV is straight from Hell, and you'd be wise to burn yours if you have one. If you love Jesus, care about the truth, and want to seek God's face, then you need God's Word... the King James Bible!
Woe Unto America!
Yes, June 25th, 1962 just may be the saddest day in American history. This tragic decision (i.e., to remove prayer from the public schools) should be a challenge for believers everywhere to pray more diligently, to lead others in prayer, and to uplift the NAME OF JESUS. Let us not be intimidated by the wicked; but rather, do as did Daniel when he rightly chose to pray to his God--even if it meant breaking the law. Daniel was cast into the lion's den for the crime of praying (Daniel 6:10-16). Likewise, we see the ACLU threatening to have Christians imprisoned today for the crime of praying to the same God. History always repeats itself. Jesus foretold of the day when the wicked will kill Christians thinking they are doing God a favor (John 16:2). Those days are coming.
