NEA Editorial (2001)


To the Editor:

As a former public school board member, I am shocked and dismayed at the recent resolutions passed by the liberal National Education Association (NEA) at their annual convention in Los Angeles, Ca.

It is true that after much outcry and pressure from their own membership, the NEA withdrew Resolution “New B” regarding “Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Education”. But don’t let that fool you. Following is a brief summary of resolutions that were passed and are reported to affrim the criteria of “New B’.

Ø B1 – Calls for programs in public schools for children from birth through age 8. (The NEA is calling for Universal Pre-School.)
Ø B7 – Calls for acceptance of “diversity” which includes sexual orientation.
Ø B9 – Includes Sexual Orientation as discrimination if you do not accept your child being taught about gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgendered people. (They are proposing plans, activities and programs for students to increase their respect, understanding and sensitivity toward this lifestyle.)
Ø B39 – Sex Education is to remain a top priority and the NEA is calling for teachers and health providers to be legally protected from censorship and lawsuits. ( They belive it is the right of every individual to live in an environment of freely available information and knowledge about sexuality and encourages affiliates and members to support appropriately established sex education programs.)
Ø C 22 - Comprehensive School Health, Social and Psychological Programs and Services are called for.
Ø C 27 – Student Sexual Orientation. ( The NEA believes that counseling services and programs should be provided for students struggling with their sexual/gender orientation.)

I don’t know about you, but to me this attitude seems to be presumptious and arrogant on the part of the National Education Association. Does it really take a village to raise a child or is that a lie that many have bought into? And if you do believe it takes a village to raise your child, is this what you want them being taught? Just what are they teaching children these days? You may be surprised to find out it isn’t just the three R’s.

A discerning look at 'Biblical Patriarchy' and those who abuse it

By Angela Wittman While much of what Doug Phillips teaches regarding Patriarchy sounds biblical, because of the lack of practical application, his teachings are often taken to extremes. Sometimes, men just hear his vision of men always “leading,” and they become domineering and demanding, causing undue stress on the wife. I know of one family that divorced precisely because of hearing this teaching and not understanding what it really should be. Sometimes, men will try to emulate what they see in Doug Phillips, and start requiring their families to have all the same rules as the Phillips. Unfortunately, if there are no personal convictions behind the rules, they soon become extremely oppressive and smother the family. Some men just have no clue about how to “lead” their families; they just know that it’s being constantly preached at them from the pulpit. Having come from a home without a godly leader, these men need lots of practical examples. (Taken from: Doug Phillips’ Kangaroo Court

A discerning look at Ted Weiland's "Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective"

By Angela Wittman I believe I have found within the Scriptures the key to what made America great, and this key can restore her to her former greatness. - Ted Weiland, ( Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution; The Christian Perspective , A couple of years ago Ted Weiland contacted me and asked if he might send me his primer on  Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective . After receiving and reviewing the primer, I decided to toss it in the trash due to the concern that Mr. Weiland was missing a foundational point - Biblical covenanting.  And after recently reviewing his work in greater detail, I believe the reformed and theonomic community should be cautious about Mr. Weiland's book and his beliefs. Due to some glaring "red flags" I encountered while researching Mr. Weiland, I've decided to write this warning and state my concerns. First of a

'Of Saving Faith'

The Westminster Confession of Faith Chapter XIV Of Saving Faith I. The grace of faith, whereby the elect are enabled to believe to the saving of their souls, [1] is the work of the Spirit of Christ in their hearts, [2] and is ordinarily wrought by the ministry of the Word, [3] by which also, and by the administration of the sacraments, and prayer, it is increased and strengthened. [4] II. By this faith, a Christian believes to be true whatsoever is revealed in the Word, for the authority of God himself speaking therein; [5] and acts differently upon that which each particular passage thereof contains; yielding obedience to the commands, [6] trembling at the threatenings, [7] and embracing the promises of God for this life, and that which is to come. [8] But the principal acts of saving faith are accepting, receiving, and resting upon Christ alone for justification, sanctification, and eternal life, by virtue of the covenant of grace. [9] III. This faith is differ
