Mr. Whitehead probes the results of this paradigm shift, and shows that unpleasant changes are in the works, and indeed are already underway. But, this is no mere voice of doom. The ending of the book has two very important chapters, which spell out what Christians should do about it. This book also has two wonderful bonuses – a number of excellent political cartoons from the inestimable Wayne Stayskal, and two excellent appendices that should not be skipped!
John W. Whitehead (b.1946) is a well-known attorney and founder of the Rutherford Institute, a nonprofit civil liberties and human rights organization. In this 1985 book, Whitehead flexes his intellectual muscles, and produces a book that is profound and yet highly readable. Are you a Christian who is concerned about the course that the United States is on? Then, you should read this book. I highly recommend it.
by which American Citizens have the lawful right, the parental right, to education their children as a private alternative of Public Schooling.
The fascinating element in all of the case law cited in this small book, is that the landmark 1972 case,
WISCONSIN v. YODER, 406 U.S. 205 (1972) which establishes private and homeschooling as a Lawful Right, and a FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT of American parents, is also cited for specific objection, in the book by New Atheist author Richard Dawkins.
Those who have read Dawkins propagandistic publication, will understand the entirety of Dawkins absurd arguments, if they have first studied this slender volume by John W. Whitehead.
Facts of the Case:
Jonas Yoder and Wallace Miller, both members of the Old Order Amish religion, and Adin Yutzy, a member of the Conservative Amish Mennonite Church, were prosecuted under a Wisconsin law that required all children to attend public schools until age 16. The three parents refused to send their children to such schools after the eighth grade, arguing that high school attendance was contrary to their religious beliefs.
"Did Wisconsin's requirement that all parents send their children to school at least until age 16 violate the First Amendment by criminalizing the conduct of parents who refused to send their children to school for religious reasons?Read more ›
Rather than splashing around in shallow talking points arguments, this work explores the roots of our culture's downward spiral. It's not hard to see the destination the progressives are progressing toward once it's pointed out. Ignore liberal taunts and ridicule of conservatives as anachronistic and dull-witted -- read this book and see for yourself that the emperor has no clothes.
If you want to know how in Hell we got where we're at and where modern progressivism is taking us, read this book. Whitehead's writing is neither shrill nor ponderous, but rather witty, well reasoned and thoroughly documented. It would even be a fun read if the issues weren't so soberingly serious. When I finished reading it, I paced back and forth in my house, fuming mad at the revisionist crap I'd been spoon fed in high school and college -- so many lies. This book can be liberating and even cathartic. If you want to peek under the shabby veneer of progressivism and see what liberals are really foisting on us and how, this is a great start. It's not the least outdated. By the same author, THE STEALING OF AMERICA is also excellent.
