Pastor Scotts Message
This was written by a teen in Bagdad, Arizona.
Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.
If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the state.
We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the "unwed daddy" our Senior King.
It's inappropriate to teach right from wrong,
We're taught that such "Judgements" do not belong
We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.
It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the schools a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take.
When Russian was still a communist country a Russian man
that had defected to America began speaking at churches. I
heard him once and I will never forget this one thing that he said,
"In Russia we are free to think whatever we want. We just can't
talk about it."
In a country where corporations are requiring sensitivity classes
be taken for those who speak on the side of morality, I wonder
where we are heading.
We can try to separate church from state, but you will never
be able to separate a man from his God
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels
nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,
neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be
able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus
