A clash between two inimical worldviews is taking place in America: Biblical Christianity vs. secular humanism. In order to dominate, secular humanists had to find a way to exercise complete control over the five levers of cultural influence: spiritual, intellectual, educational, economical and vocational.

Secular lawyers can be unflaggingly persistent as well as ruthlessly devious. They determined that to banish the Judeo-Christian culture from the public square, the Bible had to be expunged from public education first. Theological principles and debate then could be relegated to the recesses of the conscience, and safely lodged behind the four walls of the church. As a consequence, public education, higher learning and academia have become ever more intertwined with the state.

It was completely different in the 17th and 18th centuries. Public education and higher learning "had its roots in American Protestantism, in fact 106 of the 108 colleges were distinctly Christian. It was while the First Amendment was passed, requiring all new states entering the Union to have education systems in place emphasizing the teaching of both religion and morality," Arthur W. Hunt III says in The Vanishing Word.

Someone's morality will be legislated and someone's philosophy will be taught in public schools and universities, "for those who govern the minds of the young, direct the course of the future of civilization," Joseph Boot writes in The Mission of God: A Manifesto Of Hope For Society. For this reason, under the influence of pagan secularism, the culture has become gruff, debauched and vitriolic over the last 75 years. read more
