YOU’VE LOST ME

“You’ve lost me.”  That’s the despairing voice of millions of our children. “I don’t get your anger.  I don’t get what you are trying to tell me.  I can’t understand the things you say are important—you’ve lost me.”  What will become of them?  What nameless horror awaits them in the future?  They know that are not valued.  They know they don’t really matter to America anymore.

They are trying to tell us, “You’ve lost me because you do not care about me.”  Tragically, the majority of people who are in their lives, on any given day, do not care about them.   In fact, these activists do not care about anybody’s children—not even their own.

The left really doesn’t even want children.  Seattle and San Francisco have more dogs than children.

In all the noise “progressive” education is making about sex education, diversity and human rights one thing is painfully clear: none of it is about the child.  The noise is for a minuscule number of grown ups–not the children–that liberals see as oppressed.  For Social Justice Warriors there is no tomorrow.

In a telling moment on Fox News Tucker Carlson asked Bruce/Kaitlin Jenner the reason for his/her activism.   The answer was illuminating: “so the next generation will be tolerant of those like me.”  It’s not about what children are going through—it’s not about building a future for them…no, it’s about the cause—the forced transformation of how children should think.  It’s about bulldozing over our current values, no matter what the cost or who it hurts.

Teachers unions make sure the damage begins early.   Most grammar school classrooms are echo chambers of indoctrination.  Your little girl is shamed for not accepting her duty to bring down the patriarchal system.  Your little boy is shamed for, well, being a boy.  Your child is taught to hate America and everything it stands for.

Of course, these lefties have no solutions.   They only have grievances.  They know what they want to tear down.  Then there are the universities.

The welfare of the next generation also means nothing to modern universities where, inflammatory rhetoric trumps reading, writing and math.   Campuses are churning out automatons who can’t think logically, defend their rage, or read their own diplomas.

Look closely into the eyes of protesting students—especially the younger ones.  You will see half-baked convictions.  You will see hysterical behavior from an unsure devotee.  They don’t know if it’s right but they do it anyway out a dysfunctional need for the approval of pseudo-intellectual tyrants.  They want academic approval—chanting and screaming, then like battered children, they’ll glance over at the abusive parent and ask, “is this what you want me to do?!”

And what these professorial bullies want them to do is believe something utterly stupid: i.e. “Your words are like physical violence to me, so I must use violence to silence you.”  Many student protesters can’t explain their protest—heck, they can’t even spell it.  Check out a few of their protest signs!

That brings me to my most important question:  How will they be able to feed themselves with this bogus education?  How will they survive?  Most importantly how will they value freedom enough to protect it?

They are urged to explore their urges—to operate on free-floating anger.  But they cannot persevere.  They possess no marketable skill—nor the will to gain such skills.

Why on earth are we giving these villains destroying our children quarter.  Here’s something all sane people laugh at:  federal funding for institutions who want to overthrow the federal government.  Liberal education is turning into the crime of the century.  They have disgraced themselves.

“You’ve lost me.”  That phrase should awaken a fire in your soul.  Begin with your own child!  Hold them like you never held them before.  Give them the weapons to defeat destructive emotions and dastardly ideas.  Remember how we made fun of home-schoolers…not so much now huh?

I once sat at a round table discussion with other media ministries.  They were talking about future vision and what their ministries would look like in 5 years.  There were a lot of lofty projects in the works.

When it came my turn—they were not prepared for my answer.  I told them I was re-calibrating everything to go after the young.  I told them I was in the throes of fresh surrender to the Holy Spirit.  I told them that we hear the cry of a tortured generation.

I told them the young need meetings where supernatural power gives them proof of Christ.  They need events where the preaching fills them with direction—where God puts the Holy Ghost on them to make them mighty souls the gates of hell cannot defeat.  We need to do way, way more but this is a start.

We have only just begun to fight for them.  I hope you’ll join me in this fight.  At least I hope you will answer the call of God.

One thing I know beyond all knowing—when this generation of children says to me “you’ve lost me,” I will roar back—there is no way we will ever lose you!

Open Bathrooms and America’s War on Kids: A Daddy’s Perspective

Open Bathrooms and America’s War on Kids: A Daddy’s Perspective

 

by Matt O’Reilly

 

This is not the sort of post I normally write, but I have a daughter. So, here goes. California Governor Jerry Brown signed a law yesterday establishing an open bathroom policy in the state’s public schools. This policy is the first in the nation to allow students to choose which bathroom they will use based on their gender identity. So, little boys who consider themselves transgender are now allowed to use the little girls’ room at school. I won’t get into the details of the law; you can read that at CNN. I’ve got more important things to say.
First, as a daddy, there is no way – let me say that again – no way! my little girl will ever – ever! – attend a school in which little boys, particularly of the adolescent variety, are given entry to the girls bathroom. No way. No how. No sir. Any father who allows his daughter to darken the doors of such a place is colluding with the powers that have abandoned their responsibility to protect children in favor of putting children at obvious risk.
Second, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that there will soon be a significant escalation in the number of pubescent boys who are suddenly experiencing confusion about their gender identity and discovering, after all, that they themselves are transgender students. “Yes, yes,” Johnny will say, “I’m beginning to feel like a girl trapped in a boy’s body. May I have the hall pass? I need to use the restroom.” We are fools, if we think boys who have no question about their gender identity will not abuse this law in order to take advantage of girls.
Third, given what I’ve just said, we must conclude that California has it out for its children. This law will not only create further confusion for students, it will also create situations in which kids will get hurt. And it comes from the halls of the state legislature. Make no mistake. California has codified it’s war on children.
Finally, I’m not really surprised by this, and you shouldn’t be either. You can tell a lot about a society by the way it treats its kids, and in this society we’ve been sacrificing children to the false gods of convenience and consequence-free sex for decades. We now have laws on the books that will make it easier and easier for children to inflict exceedingly significant (sexual) damage on one another. Truly, we have received the penalty for our error. We have been given over.

Jerry Brown and California Democrats lose their minds…while mega church pastors are asleep at the wheel.

By Mario Murillo

California spends more per student for education that any other state and still have the worst schools anywhere. So what did they find time to do?   

AB-1266 Pupil rights: sex-segregated school programs and activities.(2013-2014)

It is now a law in every public school in California from Kindergarten to 12th grade:  If a 5 year old boy thinks he is a girl he can walk in on your 5 year old daughter while she uses the bathroom.  If a high school boy thinks he is a girl he can shower with your daughter after gym class.

(And oh by the way, all of you Christian parents out there in New York, Massachusetts, Vermont and Illinois…your schools are next.)

Here is what liberals believe will fix America’s worst schools: ignore tests scores, teacher incompetence, violence, drug addiction, union corruption and mind boggling waste.  Instead focus on transgender students. Get them into bathrooms and showers where they will feel more comfortable.

If you read the Los Angeles Times you would think this new law was the Emancipation Proclamation of Abraham Lincoln.

Not all teachers in California are left wing activist wackos.  Imagine the ones that just want to teach.  Already overloaded with unruly classrooms, critical shortages of material, absentee parents they now must referee a gender war in the bathrooms and locker rooms.

Insanity!  The law is hailed as a tool to protect transgender students.  Instead this will spike animosity because of the constant disruption of privacy.   Also, consider the costs just from all of the additional staff time involved in sort out all of the guidelines and procedures.

This insane law places an unbearable burden on students who just want to learn.  I predict a massive evacuation from a public school system that is already suspect at best.  How much more can you ask sane parents take in this State?

And where were the mega church pastors when all of this was going on?   Imagine if they tried to pass a law like this in the 1980s?   The backlash from pastors would have been nuclear, the firestorm from the faith community would have been apocalyptic!

Years ago when seeker church growth models were being hailed for their ability to fill pews, few considered the long range impact.   Blinded by immediate results, they did not consider the one aspect of church that they were losing in the mix: moral authority.  They lost the right to rebuke the surrounding culture because they had created a religious version of that culture.

They traded in moral awakening for short term celebrity.  Take your average seeker pastor today, can they begin now to speak up for righteousness?  Can they suddenly shift gears and begin to challenge California?

Every Sunday morning they face a myriad of fans that they have weaned on cheap grace and sloppy agape.  To suddenly start quoting the Bible would confuse and alienate the crowd.  To start using terms like repentance and righteousness would offend their creation.  To stand and weep over California from their pulpit would dampen the festive atmosphere that they have labored so ardently to create.

Is this toilet law the end of the world?  No way!  I still carry hope for revival in California.  I can still see the day when masses have the scales fall off of their eyes and hear a collective cry of “what were we thinking!!!”

I still have hope that from outside the celebrity church system will arise young lions who love not their own lives and will raise a righteous ruckus in the midst of LA LA Land!
