LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Removing God from schools was cause

By George Pitts, Fort Stockton

In reference to the shooting in Parkland, Fla., on. Feb. 14, well what do you expect? We’ve kicked the Ten Commandments out of our schools. How about the one that says, “Thou shalt not kill”!

In the nineties the Supreme Court ruled that the Ten Commandments in public schools in Kentucky were unconstitutional. They said if a student read the Ten Commandments on the bulletin board he might actually be influenced to obey them! They were removed from all public schools in Kentucky! What jackasses we have had on our Supreme Court.

In recent years we have not had one Bible-believing judge on the court. Thank God for Justice Gorsuch.

When our country was founded we had no public schools. Our schools were located in churches. The Bible was our textbook. Republicans in rural areas of Texas oppose state vouchers for private schools. They don’t want public schools to lose state money. They should be ashamed of themselves. I’m putting my money where my mouth is. I pay $3,000 a year for my grandson’s first grade education in a Christian school. Why?

1.) I don’t like the bullying in government schools.

2.) I don’t want my grandson to be indoctrinated with monkey propaganda.

3.) Private Christian schools teach the whole person consists of body, mind and soul. Therefore, morality and character development are taught. Result: There are almost no shootings in Christian schools. Not so in government schools. These secular, humanist warehouses teach the student has just a body and mind (no soul). Thus we are producing, not all, but many muscled-up, clever devils, and the shootings will continue.

Some say guns should be prohibited in schools. I say liberal, leftist schools should be prohibited.
