Teaching Our Children

March 18, 2008
Who would take their children to a church where the preacher preaches that his congregation, which includes children, should reject the hymn “God Bless America” and to instead shout out “God Damn America.” Who would dress their children in Sunday finery to march off to a supposed House of God where the preacher preaches that America advocates terrorism for its own purposes, that their country refuses help to the hopeless, and that their government oppresses minorities by giving them drugs and then sending them to prison for using them? Who would subject their young children to hearing sermons from the pulpit of; “No, no, no, not ‘God bless America,’ God damn America. That’s in the Bible, you’re killing innocent people. God damn America for treating us citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.

What kind of parents would tolerate their children listening to sermons of resentment along with R-rated words; words that must be bleeped before television and radio stations can broadcast them? You can see the exuberant parents and their children in this YouTube.com video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdJB-qkfUHc

Who would take their children to hear such hatred spewed on a Sunday morning? Presidential Candidate Barack Obama and his wife Michelle are two such parents.

It has been a sad, sad realization that many other well-dressed, seemingly prosperous Americans of the city of Chicago subject their children to such rantings every Sunday. It is sad indeed that young children right here in America are having their spirits and souls depressed and handicapped by such resentments of their fellow countrymen and hatred of their own nation. For such bad teachings, these children can forever blame their parents and their preacher, the Most Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” ~~The Old Testament of the Holy Bible
