Did you know the U.S. Dept of Ed is teaching your children Pagan religion?
1. Michigan Code: Act 451, Section 380.10 Rights of parents and legal guardians; duties of public schools.
“It is the natural, fundamental right of parents and legal guardians to determine and direct the care, teaching, and education of their children. The public schools of this state serve the needs of the pupils by cooperating with the pupil’s parents and legal guardians to develop the pupil’s intellectual capabilities and vocational skills in a safe and positive environment.”
History: Add. 1995, Act 289, Eff. July 1, 1996
Popular Name: Act 451
2. GEPA (the General Education Provisions Act of 1970), Section 432 specifically outlaws these programs by Congress and President Nixon.
“Sec. 432. No provision of any applicable program shall be construed to authorize any department, agency, officer, or employee of the United States to exercise any direction, supervision, or control over the curriculum, program of instruction, administration, or personnel of any educational institution, school, or school system, or over the selection of library resources, textbooks, or other printed or published instructional materials by any educational institution or school system, or to require the assignment or transportation of students or teachers in order to overcome racial imbalance. (20 U.S.C. 1231a) Enacted April 18, 1970, P.L. 91-230, Title IV, sec. 401(a) (10), 81 Stat. 169.”
3. Denial of un-strung vouchers for parochial schools, using the Michigan Constitution’s Article I, Sec. 4 on religious freedom, which then defines how your religious freedoms are defined and hemmed-in, all the while teaching your kids Secular Humanism (look it up) in the public and charter schools against your will or knowledge, which is also against the very law they cite. Legal Quote: “No money shall be appropriated or drawn from the treasury for the benefit of any religious sect or society, theological or religious seminary; nor shall property belonging to the state be appropriated for any such purpose.”
4. Yet, “the U.S. Supreme Court cited Secular Humanism as a religion in the 1961 case of Torcaso v. Watkins (367 U.S. 488)” and our State AND the Federal Government continue to fund it with reckless abandon, using OUR TAX DOLLARS! (Ref: Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, Iserbyt, abr. ed. pg.38; Online Ed., pg.22.) Note: The Michigan Constitution was modified and ratified in 1963, AFTER this ruling. According to our agreement with “the Several States”, called the Constitution, we must abide by this decision. After all, much of legalities and the execution thereof come down to definitions, don’t they?
Why doesn’t Bill Scheutte do something about this?
