Scripture is my authority for all things regarding to life and godliness. 2 Cor. 10: 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

Anti-American School Administrators
Students and parents at a Colorado high school are outraged after administrators turned down their request for a spirit week day honoring America because it might offend non-Americans.
“They said they didn’t want to offend anyone from other countries or immigrants,” a 16-year-old member of the student council told me. “They just really did not want to make anyone feel uncomfortable.”
“It’s bizarre and idiotic that we’ve come to this crossroads in our society that we are having to sacrifice our own culture and belief system,” one of the parents told me. “I can’t even tell you how it got our blood boiling.”
“It’s shocking,” the 16-year-old said. “There are men and women fighting for our country and we should be able to celebrate that and be proud that we live in a country where we are allowed to vote – the right to free speech. They won’t even let us celebrate it.”
The irony, said the students, is that they are required to participate in Cinco de Mayo celebrations. One member of the student council pointed out the hypocrisy ....
Never mind that the history of our country is WHY millions come here over the years. The liberals are trying to shame Americans of our American history.
Yet new citizens of the United States of American are often far more patriotic than these American-hating liberals who have no clue the blessings we've had here (yet they idolize the bad countries so many are trying to escape from--how backwards is THAT?). Liberals hate the very country that has given them a lot of freedom to be hateful, ignorant, unappreciative, and outspoken against our country.
These administrators are violating the student's rights and showing contempt for our country's great history. They're cowards.
