Teachers unions and public education are a bigger threat to the United States than terrorists, a correspondent for TV preacher Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) said recently.
Dale Hurd, a CBN reporter, blamed public schools for what he sees as widespread moral decay in the United States.
“[P]ublic education has increasingly eroded public morality, the family, patriotism, and learning,” Hurd wrote in an online column.
Stung by defeats during the 2012 election cycle, Religious Right groups are gearing up for a renewed thrust in 2014.
The American Renewal Project plans to target 12 states prior to the 2014 election, reported David Brody, chief political correspondent for TV preacher Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network.
Brody said that the group “will be organizing pastor policy briefings and voter registration drives across this country in 12 key states during the 2014 election cycle. It’s their latest attempt to restore America to its Judeo-Christian heritage.”
Naomi Campbell and Mia Farrow have told us what they know about former Liberian President Charles Taylor. Shouldn’t televangelist Pat Robertson be forced to do the same?
Robertson, founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network and a top leader of the Religious Right, may have some important information to reveal about the brutal dictator now on trial for war crimes. The two have had enough business dealings to merit some scrutiny.
TV evangelist Pat Robertson’s 80th birthday is on Monday, and to mark that momentous occasion, the Virginia legislature decided to pass a resolution lauding him a great American, visionary leader and all-around swell fellow.
The resolution is full of the “whereases” and flowery language that are common in this type of thing. It lauds Robertson’s creation of the Christian Broadcasting Network, Regent University, the American Center for Law and Justice and the Christian Coalition.
What should public schools do about Halloween?
Americans United has never taken a formal position on this question, but since I have two children attending public schools, I've given it some thought. It has been on my mind even more so lately since I've been working on a costume for my 11-year-old son that involves a lot of duct tape. He'll be wearing it in a school parade today and for trick-or-treating on Saturday.
