Sam Sobor Is Right

Actress Sam Sorbo, the wife of “Hercules” actor Kevin Sorbo, slammed the American education system during an interview with Dana Loesch that aired Friday.

The homeschooling mother remarked passionately: “You people who send your kids to school, you have no idea what the schools are doing to their fresh little brains, in brainwashing them into this progressive, liberal — it’s antithetical to America, the agenda that they’re being indoctrinated with.”

“As naive as I was back then, I thought, ‘Well if I write about school, that’s not political!’ But of course school is the most political, because that’s where the progressive agenda is coming out the strongest and the hardest,” Sorbo remarked.

She's absolutely right.

To say that sodomy is sinful, to say that illegal aliens should return to their own country, to demand all foreigners to obey our laws, to not give money, tuition, education, medical care, or driver's licences to illegals, to have the death penalty, to bring a Bible to school and read it, to pray, to share one's faith, to oppose political correctness, to say America was founded in great part to Christians who came here for religious freedom, to say that we are (were, now) a great nation, to say capitalism works and communism does not, to refuse to do business with sodomites because it goes against the Bible, to question Obama's policies or dare to say he's wrong and even in sin, to declare that there is absolute right and wrong......is to be a blasphemer in the eyes of the liberals worthy of prison, loss of a job, and loss of constitutional rights.

Such views will not be accepted in school, in the work place, in businesses, in churches, in bakeries, in hair salons,in photography studios, on the streets, on tv, etc.

To dare to disagree with liberalism is to incur their hostile wrath and lawsuits, and have your constitutional rights taken away.

John Dewey would be proud.

I am convinced that the battle for humankind's future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers that correctly perceive their role as proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being...The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and new — the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism, resplendent with the promise of a world in which the never-realized Christian ideal of 'love thy neighbor' will finally be achieved." — excerpt from an article by John Dunphy titled "A Religion for a New Age," appearing in the January/February 1983 issue of The Humanist Magazine.

In so many words, the above excerpt reveals the objective of modern, "'progressive' education." (Please note the word "proselytizers," and then consider the abject scorn and condemnation against those who would even attempt to "proselytize" the faiths of either Judaism or Christianity in a public school classroom!) At some point between the late 1940's and the mid 1950's, the doctrines of progressive education achieved dominance in a majority of America's public schools and universities. The fundamental dogma of this movement is probably best defined as a mixture of collectivist (i. e., socialistic, even Marxist) political theory and Freudian/Jungian psychology. The goal of the progressive education movement was (and remains today) to subvert American founding ideas and principles and to replace them with secular and collectivist directives and "values." It was (and is) a permissive, "Unitarian Universalist" approach to education....

The chief architect (often called the "father") of the progressive education movement was John Dewey (1859-1952). Dewey contributed to and is a signatory of the original Humanist Manifesto. (Seewww.americanhumanist.org/about/manifesto1.html.) As such, Dewey clearly rejected the notion of a Supreme Creator and Author of Law and heartily embraced the ideas of relativism and global government. He was highly influential in the establishment of the modern National Education Association (NEA), and he all but single-handedly set the ultra-liberal standard to which the NEA adheres to this day.
