When I was in public elementary, junior and senior high school, teachers taught their lessons without the aid of immoral methods such as sex and nudity. Back in those days, America was still considered to be a Christian nation, at least that was the ruling of the US Supreme Court in 1892.
In the case of Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States, Supreme Court Justice David Josiah Brewer wrote in his decision:
“No purpose of action against religion can be imputed to any legislation, state or national, because this is a religious people. This is historically true. From the discovery of this continent to the present hour, there is a single voice making this affirmation.”
“…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.”
This statement is included as part of the dicta—that is, it is a gratuitous statement that is not essential to the Court’s holding. The Court had already decided the issue before venturing its opinion as to the religious character of the country. Included was a remarkable list of 87 examples taken from pre-Constitutional documents, historical practice, colonial charters, and the like, which reveal our undisputed religious roots. They range from the commissions of Christopher Columbus to the first charter of Virginia to the Declaration of Independence.
At school, we stood and recited the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States. We had Bibles in our classrooms. We were allowed to pray and sex was reserved for marriage.
Then a few atheists began to complain while the majority of Christians in America sat quietly on their duffs and said nothing. The atheists took their cases to the US Supreme Court who did a 180 degree turn on prior court rulings when they ruled America was not a Christian nation and they threw God, Jesus, the Bible, prayer and Christianity out of the public schools.
From that day on, America’s public schools have, for the most part, abandoned all of the decent morals and values that helped make America great and powerful. In the absence of a Christian foundation, those morals and values were replaced with anti-God immorality, indecency, lack of respect, and self-centered hedonism.
I cannot begin to number how many accounts of a teacher or coach having sex with students or giving them alcohol at parties or other immoral activities. These same students are being taught liberal sex education where they are taught that sexual activities are normal and often to be explored. They are provided with condoms and other forms of birth control as well as being taught that homosexuality is okay and should be explored.
So, it should be no surprise to learn that a number of teachers have been turning to things like sex as part of the lesson plans. A junior high school algebra teacher in Ohio included the following question in his math lessons:
“Tony can send 5 texts and 3 nudes in 19 minutes. He could also send 3 texts and 1 nude in 9 minutes. How long would it take him to send one text and one nude?”
In many states, underage sexting is a criminal offense and most schools have policies against sexting, yet this teacher chose to use it as part of his math lesson. When the school was notified of the question, teacher Daniel Rapp received a formal reprimand, the second of his career.
Sex and nudity is also being used by an online English language course for Spanish speaking people. The online courses are using nude teachers and tutors in hopes of better reaching their students and having them pay more attention and learn how to speak English.
When my daughter was taking Freshman English in college, her instructor insisted on showing the class pornographic films and claiming they were literature. My daughter objected and told the teacher she found the films offensives and she was told that she would fail if she didn’t watch the films and complete the assignments associated with them.
These are just a few of the examples of how far our schools and society has fallen since the 1960s Supreme Court decisions to turn America into an atheistic nation. It does explain why so many teachers are turning to sex and nudity as part of the lesson plans. So, is it any wonder why we read and hear so many instances of the moral decay of our young people and why so many are now embracing abominable and sinful lifestyles like homosexuality and sexual promiscuity.
