The cause of violence in schools?

To the editor:

Please read the following U.S.Supreme Court Decisions and you will understand why our Public Schools in America,are filled with violence and shootings:

#1. McCollum v. Board of Education District 71, 333 U.S. 203 (1948) Court finds religious instruction in public schools a violation of the establishment clause and therefore unconstitutional.

#2. Engel v. Vitale, 82 S.Ct. 1261 (1962) Any kind of prayer, composed by public school districts,even nondenominational prayer,i s unconstitutional government sponsorship of religion.

#3. Abington School District v. Schempp, 374 U.S. 203 (1963) Court finds Bible reading over school intercom unconstitutional.

#4.Stone v. Graham, 449 U.S. 39 (1980) Court finds posting of The Ten Commandments in schools unconstitutional.

#5.Wallace v. Jaffree, 105 S.Ct. 2479 (1985) State’s moment of silence statute is unconstitutional where legislative record reveals that motivation for statute was encouragement of prayer.

#6. Edwards v. Aquillard, 107 S.Ct. 2573 (1987) Unconstitutional for state to require teaching of “creation science” in all instances in which evolution is taught.

#7. Allegheny County v. ACLU, 492 U.S. 573 (1989) Court finds that a nativity scene displayed inside a government building violates the establishment clause.

#8. Lee v. Weisman, 112 S.Ct.2649 (1992) Unconstitutional for a school district to provide any clergy to perform nondenominational prayer at elementary or secondary school graduation.

You see, it is very simple. When good, Godly and Biblical influences are removed from an environment, then, bad, unGodly, and unBiblical influences will move in and take over that once healthy enviroment. So then, the great violence and many shootings in America’s Public Schools should not surprise us, because we are getting what we have sown. Galatians 6:7-“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
