The Soon Coming Judgment Of God Upon America and How To Escape It 118
Tapes with nature sounds were played to the children. The tapes included spoken
passages such as: everything in wild nature fits into us, as if truly part and parent of us.
The tape also included prayers such as the following Taos Indian invocation:
Now this is what we believe. / The Mother of us all is Earth. / The Father
is the Sun. / The Grandfather is the Creator / Who bathed us with his mind / And
gave life to all things. / The Brother is the beasts and trees. / The Sister is that
with wings. / We are the children of Earth / And do it no harm in any way. / Nor
do we offend the Sun / By not greeting it at dawn. / We praise our Grandfather for
his creation. / We share the same breath together-- The beasts, the trees, the birds,
Two of the other complaints included a Yoga class taught by a Sikh priest in his Turban
and priestly robes; and a meditation class instructing in New Age meditation techniques.
The district court upheld some claims and dismissed others. The judge found that the
making of an image of the Hindu god Ganesha, the use of 'worry dolls' to 'chase away bad
dreams,' the liturgy of an Earth Day celebration, and the playing of a Native American prayer on
a meditation tape violated the Establishment Clause. Other practices that were ruled to be
harmless included the game 'Magic, the Gathering,' a Yoga class taught by a Sikh priest, and
meditation exercises. On appeal, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals through out all the claims the
district court had allowed without considering the merits of the case.
The decision of the United States Court of Appeals Second Circuit was of the effect that
school districts can violate the constitution and students rights as much as they like provided
certain conditions are met. The condition that must be met is that the case must be tied up in the
courts until the plaintiffs children are no longer in the school in question. In order for a case to be
valid, the plaintiffs children must remain in the defendant's school and must continue to endure
the violation of their rights for the 4 to 8 years that it takes for a case to go through the court's.
This includes the district court, appeals court and possibly the supreme court. If the children or
child leaves the school during this time period the case becomes moot and will be dismissed by
Where Does Each of Us Stand?
If our government or our selves is to decide what is right or wrong then we place our
government or ourselves above God. Satan placed himself above God when he declared: I will
ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount
of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will
be like the most High (Isaiah 14:13-14). In response to this declaration by Satan, God declared:
thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit (Isaiah 14:15). If we choose to place
ourselves above God or if we blindly follow a government that chooses to place itself above God
then we shall suffer the same fate as Satan himself. Rather than blindly follow our government,
we most appose it when it is wrong! We must make our voice heard to our representatives, we
must pray for our government leaders and for our nation.
