We often say that the biggest teacher in the public schools is the culture. There is some direct anti-God teaching that goes on. All science classes, of course, are antiGod and anti-Christ, saying that they don't exist and calling their words lies. And in other classes, public school teachers will sometimes inject their personal life views into their lectures as snide little anti-Christian remarks. The public school culture, though, is by far the best instructor in anti-God living. That culture sets itself up as being morally correct and mocks those who do not conform. Almost all young people who are taught for twelve to fourteen years in that culture do accept it as a way of life. All students – not almost all, but all – who are educated in that Godless culture are adversely affected by it. Many teachers and public school personnel do not care for what goes on in the public schools. At a reunion last summer, I talked with a woman who had been a music teacher in the public schools for forty-three years. I hadn't talked with her for about that long, and I guess I was relating to my own wonderful home school teaching experience, so I asked her if she missed teaching. She quickly answered that she didn't care if she ever went into a school again. I took that to mean she was really, really enjoying her retirement. Often when public school personnel try to uphold higher standards of conduct, they are opposed by either the ACLU or perhaps the PTA. Like when a school in Ohio tried to ban dirty dancing. by ELISA AMIGO Fox 8 News Reporter 10:33 p.m. EST, February 4, 2011 MEDINA, Ohio — According to new rules at Medina High School, students who refuse a breathalyzer or are caught dirty dancing could get the boot! Now, a group of students are "revolting" by organizing their own dance. Saturday night, Medina High School will host its annual "Sweetheart Dance." The guidelines for student behavior and dress code have changed after several students
showed up intoxicated at the Homecoming dance. Friday night, Medina City Schools superintendent Randy Stepp issued the following statement: "We are simply asking that students refrain from consuming alcohol and/or other banned substances, refrain from dressing inappropriately and refrain from dancing inappropriately. I don't see how that is too much to ask for a high school dance." That's clear enough. This school has an annual dance. At that dance, the administrators don't want students who are drunk or drugged; they want everybody to have their private body parts covered; and they don't want students acting like stray dogs on the street. I suppose that everyone knows about the type of dancing that young people do today. I remember when partner-less dancing first began with The Twist, where dancers just stood and gyrated instead of flowing and twirling. Today's dancing is The Twist with a twist, that twist being the most lewd movements possible without actually engaging in public acts of indecency. The school in Ohio did not want their students acting like that at the dance. And that caused a massive student revolt. "We don't really care about the breathalyzer, that's not the problem. It's the dancing and the dress code that bother us," said senior Nick Summers." So this student said the students don't care if they can't get drunk or drugged. Actually one student commented on this news segment that students come to Medina High School drugged every day. What caused the revolt is that the students really want to dress and dance lewdly. You see, that is a big part of the school culture. They want to show their bodies and dance dirty, and they demand to be allowed to do so. This is the core of liberalism – DO NOT RESTRAIN ME! I MUST BE ALLOWED TO DO WHATEVER I WANT! That is the philosophy of modern child rearing: don't force the child to obey, but try to talk him into obeying. This philosophy is now finding its full fruit in the homosexual movement, which is a lifestyle of no restraint. The students in Medina High School refused to be restrained from dressing lewdly and dancing dirty. "After the new dance rules were announced, Summers and a group of Medina High School students decided to raise money to fund their own dance. They're calling it "Sweetheart 2.0." The "alternative" dance will take place at the Coppertop Golf Club in Valley City the same night as the school dance.
"We sold tickets for about a month. We raised about $4,500," said Summers. Students worked out the logistics and security detail themselves. "We have a DJ, tickets, stage, officers, security and location." With 450 students expected to attend, Coppertop owner Mark Haddad said security will be tight. "One time in, that's it. If [students] leave without a chaperone escort, [they're] not getting back in," said Haddad. In addition to 25 parent chaperones, local sheriff's deputies will also be there to greet students at the door. "If anyone appears to be intoxicated or trying to bring in anything, it's going to be checked by the officers," said Haddad." They go to all that trouble and are supported by all those parents just so those students can dress skimpy and dance dirty. Now there's a liberal cause for you! Dirty dancing was described by one teacher as sex with clothes on. Needless to say, if students – or parents! – don't object to sex with clothes on, they don't object to sex without clothes on, either. So how does all this make the school administrators feel? They try to enact the most basic standards of decency, only to experience a massive revolt and stinging hostility toward themselves. School personnel in other schools will think twice about trying to ban dirty dancing, won't they? And there is always the ACLU lurking in the background. For several years we have held Contra Dances, like square dancing in lines, for local Christian homeschoolers. They are a wonderful experience and are the contra of dirty dancing. Now we are helping homeschoolers in a wider geographical region get these regular local dances started in their areas. In these dances, nobody comes drugged or drunk. Everybody has everything covered that should be covered, except perhaps for my ugly bald head. And the dancing is definitely not dirty. But in the culture of America's public schools, students are learning that it is good to dress lewdly and dance dirty and it is evil to oppose that. Any parents who do not want their children learning that simply must not educate them in that culture.
