Out of the mouth of Babes
2009-09-07 — WDC Media News —
Barack Obama’s plan to address school children between K and grade 12 has raised a furor among millions of parents in the nation. But so far the only reason given for the stir it has caused is that Americans don’t want politics in the classroom. Are there other reasons and what are they?
OK, GUYS, THIS GEM COMES FROM WDC MEDIA NEWS, http://www.wdcmedia.com/newsArticle.php?ID=4059
AND I JUST WANT TO SHARE THIS LITTLE TIDBIT FROM THE ARTICLE TO SHOW YOU HOW RIDICULOUS CHRISTIANS ARE.
AND I QUOTE :
Trying to bypass parents to grab some attention or power is insulting enough but it is the essay part of the address that irks parents the most. Where will these essays be stored and how will they be used? Will they be read in the 2012 campaign for Obama’s re-election or will they end up in the Obama Presidential library someday? But the real question is; which ones?
They won’t all be flattering because school children can not be expected to say only what has been rehearsed. Laura Ingraham of Fox News said she had her daughter well prepped to answer or respond to the address if she needed to but you can believe she is not alone. Not all the children of conservative families will be kept home. What might the essays of these children look like and what of the questions they may raise?
If questions are lobbed back at the President’s questions what might they ask? Some of those questions could be as follows.
Mr. President, why are you so willing to let unborn children be aborted? If my Mommy gets pregnant will my little brother or sister be aborted too? Would you ask her not to do that?
Mr. President, why have you left so many bills behind for me to pay when I grow up? My parents say that both I and the other kids will owe nine trillion dollars and so far I can only count up to one hundred.
Mr. President, when will you show your birth certificate to people like my mom did so I could go to this nice school? You know the one with my doctor’s name on it and my footprint. If I get a copy of it can I post it on the internet and be President someday like you did or do I have to show it to the people so they can check it first? I would be glad to come to your house and help you look for your birth certificate if you want me to. Don’t forget to look under your bed for it or some place else where you hide things.
Mr. President, why have you or some of your friends called my parents terrorists? Aren’t they the people who blew up those two beautiful buildings in New York? My dad says they are very bad people, do you think my parents are bad like them?
Mr. President, when you went to those other countries over there you said America is not a Christian country. My parents said we are. They said that many of the people who came here first and wrote all our laws and our constitution were Christians who love Jesus. Do you love Jesus too? You seem like a very nice man but who should I believe you or my parents?
Mr. President, you asked me what I would do to help you. I saw a picture of you a long time ago before you got to be President and everyone was saying the pledge of allegiance to the flag except you. If you don’t know the words I could help you to learn them if you want.
Mr. President, someone said that you think we cling real tight to our Bibles. My dad is very strong and I guess he holds his bible really tight but he says it’s more important to get the words out of it and put them in his heart so he can love other people. Do you have those words in your heart?
No these are not real questions from real students but if the President does collect millions of essays from American school children it is not hard to imagine that some of them will read like this. What will come of those answers and the questions they may raise? For now it is enough to say that children are without malice but they have the most finely tuned intuition and vision of all of us. Their answers may be generally innocent but watch out for the honesty that only a child can produce, nothing could be more damaging to the ego. The Bible says it another way.
“In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.” Luke 10:21
