Current Ideologies That Jeopardize Religious Liberty and Judeo-Christian Founding Principles

MAY 9, 2021

Critical Race Theory:   American parents are increasingly looking for ways to block the spread of Marxist inspired Critical Race Theory (CRT) in the schools and the greater society.   "We're seeing what our kids are learning (as one result of seeing the zoom lessons) and our goal changes from opening schools to 'Oh my gosh.  What are we sending our children back to?'" said one Virginia parent (1)

 

CRT originated in universities in the 1990's and is a controversial idea for addressing racial issues. CRT is built on the intellectual framework of identity-based, godless Marxism.  It has spread to K-12 public and private schools, federal agencies, contractors, FBI, CDC, Sandia National (nuclear) Laboratories, Dept. of Homeland Security, and many more, where training and workshops are held to teach about "white privilege."  "Suggesting I do (have white privilege) is insulting.  Suggesting to my 9-year-old child she does is child abuse, not education," wrote parent Harvey Goldman to a Manhattan private school.(2)

 

Marxism, the foundation of Critical Race Theory, "is the social, economic and political theories of Karl Marx and provides the basis for most communist systems and theories," and the belief that our rights come from government. (3)

 

By contrast, Judeo-Christian values, the foundation of America, begins with the Declaration of Independence:  "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." (4)

Happening Now:  Christian College Sues Over Forcing Men Into Women's Dorms :

College of the Ozarks in Missouri is suing this administration over a recent directive that redefines "sex" in the Dept. of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), forcing religious institutions to permit students of the opposite sex in the same bathrooms, dormitories and dorm rooms.  Religious liberty group Alliance Defending Freedom asserts the executive order "requires private religious colleges to place biological males into female dormitories and assign them as females' roommates....Religious schools shouldn't be punished simply because of their beliefs about marriage and biological sex."(5)
