We have all been made aware of the creeping social justice or socialism introduction into our public schools. I will never forget the video about kindergartners praising Obama. We should all check out our children's books they bring home, especially those dealing with social studies or history. It is a well known fact that many of those books are being altered and no longer teach the "real" history.
Now it has come to my attention via email from a fellow patriot friend that one of our local parochial schools, Marion High, is now being indoctrinated as well with social justice. Parents need to be made aware of that, especially if they have not been informed of those programs being launched in their school.
The following is an excerpt of what one mother of a Marion student wrote:
"..... A couple of you already have your girls there and you may have heard about the "assembly" on Tuesday. Your daughters may or may not have told you about the assembly. You may or may not find it and it's contents offensive. To sum it up, I have never felt more outraged and undermined since my children began school. I am pleading with you and your fellow alums, if what I relay does not represent the Marian that formed you and that you so dearly love and want to embrace for your daughters, to complain to the administration over what is going on.
In short, an assembly took place without parents' knowledge or permission which included "Bishop" Gumbleton, another priest who shared his views, and several "nuns" of the same ilk. The panel went on to preach to the kids for 90 minutes about the importance of "social justice", while reminding the kids that they are the future leaders of our society. (hint, hint, half of you will be voting in two years) Many of you probably know that the term "social justice" has been co-opted in the past several decades and it is a buzz word for socialism. The children were told they are not good Catholics if :
*they do not support socialized medicine
*they do not support all immigration. (there should be no such thing as illegal immigration)
*they do not accept that Jesus' teachings tell us that everyone should live equally, not just equal opportunity (socialism)
*they do not accept that people from all life styles should be respected. (gay rights)
*they did not support the programs that are being offered to save the earth (hmmm, cap and trade??)
They went on to demonize Glenn Beck and upheld MICHAEL MOORE (with a huge picture displayed) as some sort of person to be emulated. "Bishop" Gumbleton went on to say that he is called a communist, and that's okay with him because he knows that it means he is doing good work.
My daughter, who has a wellformed conscience and has been brought up in an orthodox, Catholic home was physically shaking she was so upset, as were several of her friends. One courageous teacher left in disgust.
Dana has endured four years of being chastised by teachers and teens alike for speaking against abortion and speaking out against President Obama's policy on abortion. Her current teacher has a large poster representing a group that is attempting to get school sanctioned permission to be formed. It is a large picture of a rainbow, it will be called the diversity group, and its intention is to support girls who are confused about their sexual identity. While this hasn't been sanctioned, YET, the teacher is all for it.
This is just a taste of what our $ has paid for. If you think there was nothing wrong with the messages imparted at the meeting were okay, then I accept your opinion and hope you can respect mine. If you find it wrong, please speak out to Sr. Lenore and let her know her brand of Catholicism is not what you are signing up for.
I am meeting with Sr. Lenore on Monday to go express my outrage and suggest one more assemly before we let these impressionable ladies out into the college world. I am suggesting my favorite, concervative priest, Fr. Riccardo, Holy Name Alum and maybe a video from my favorite internationally respected, speaker/preacher Fr. John Corapi. (Fr. Corapi - google him if you don't know him- is the first person of the cloth to warn me and others to RUN from any church that begins preaching social justice) I'm sure it'll fall on death ears and the only thing that gets attention is money. Some outraged parents are considering meeting next week to see how we can best handle this.
Thank you for your time. I encourage you to forward this to as many people that may want to know what is going on at Marian, especially those who are contemplating entrusting their children to the school."
If this last election has not yet left an impression on our teachers and union officials then it only tells me that the battle has just begun and we cannot sit idle and let this continue. We all know what we have to do.
