"You cannot judge and love at the same time" - someone tell God!

So...on my way to CrossFit the past 2 weeks I have passed this Marque sign:

About the third time I passed this marque I decided I would take a picture. Since Pleasant Hill Community Church put this up publicly, I therefore think it's appropriate for me to comment on it publicly. 

I guess Pleasant Hill leadership or whomever put up this marque knows better than God, or, gasp, do they presume to judge God ("In Righteousness He judges and makes war" - Revelation 19:11)? He judges and loves at the same time, and CHURCH!, so are we to do also! This shows a shocking lack of Biblical understanding, which I explain below. 

Matthew 7:1-5: "Do not judge so that you will not be judged. For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' and behold, the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye (emphasis mine)."

This is probably the most misused passage of the Bible. It is what critics of what is good and decent often use to defend themselves and their positions on homosexuality, abortion, living together before marriage, etc. "Don't judge!" is their mantra, while they fail to realize that they themselves are making a judgment when they make that exclamation. No judgment is allowed except the one judgment that judges that you are judging. This is akin to the relativist argument that there is no absolute truth except for the absolute truth that there is no absolute truth.

The condition necessary BEFORE making a judgment is to examine yourself, as is further explained in the following verses:

1 Corinthians 11:31: But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged.

2 Corinthians 13:5a: Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves!

So, after we have examined ourselves, we are CALLED to make righteous judgments:

John 7:23-24: If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath so that the Law of Moses will not be broken, are you angry with Me because I made an entire man well on the Sabbath? Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment (emphasis mine)."

Proverbs 31:9a: Open your mouth, judge righteously...

Here, Paul indicates having "judged" a believer caught in egregious sin:

1 Corinthians 5:1-5: It is actually reported that there is immorality among you, and immorality of such a kind as does not exist even among the Gentiles, that someone has his father's wife. You have become arrogant and have not mourned instead, so that the one who had done this deed would be removed from your midst. For I, on my part, though absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged him who has so committed this (emphasis mine), as though I were present. In the name of our Lord Jesus, when you are assembled, and I with you in spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus, I have decided to deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

1 Corinthians 6:2-3: Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world (emphasis mine)? If the world is judged by you, are you not competent to constitute the smallest law courts? Do you not know that we will judge angels (emphasis mine)? How much more matters of this life?

If we will "judge the world"... and "angels", how much more are we to make RIGHTEOUS judgments in this life? Remember this next time someone tries to silence you by accusing you of "judging".

Update: I have been re-instated as a volunteer at my children's elementary school

See my previous post for details about how I came to be banned from volunteering at my children's elementary school. After having given the comments below at Monday's U-46 School Board meeting, the Assistant Superintendent met with us in the hallway on the spot, and promised that either she or the principal would get back to us by today. The principal called me today to invite me back to volunteering, to two specific events (if I wish) in the remaining school year and also next year as I wish. She said she would like to return to the good relationship we have had in the past and I said I would like that too. She said she understands our perspective and that we are trying to do what is best for our children.

 Speech given at Monday night's U-46 School Board meeting (full text is below video): 

Good evening Dr. Torres and board members.
I am here to explain how I was banned from volunteering by Wayne Elementary’s  principal and to ask your help to be re-instated. I have two daughters that attend there, one in 1st grade and one in 2nd grade.
The circumstances that led to my banning are these:
Incident 1: My husband, Bill Ward, wrote a letter (text can be found here: to my daughter’s 2nd grade teacher concerning the movie “An Arctic Tale” that had been shown in class. Narrated by Queen Latifa and produced by the producers of “An Inconvenient Truth”, it presents man-made global warming as established fact. We objected to this being taught to 2nd graders. When I asked the teacher if she received the letter and would like to discuss it, she responded angrily that “No, I really wouldn’t.” She ultimately e-mailed a non-response that stated that the film fit in with “Common Core and vocabulary,” and referred us to the principal.
Incident 2: Both daughters began receiving homework from the “Second Step” program, designed to teach “empathy and emotion management”. We objected to the school crossing over into a realm that should be reserved for parents. Upon further investigation I learned that the “Second Step” curriculum is provided by “The Committee for Children”, “a nonprofit working globally to promote children’s social and academic success.”  The organization has an entire page dedicated to LGBT issues (see: I believe there are many parents who would find it objectionable that U-46 is purchasing curriculum from this organization. When, at the end of my volunteering time, I said to the teacher, concerning "Second Step", "I'm not super comfortable with..." I was cut off with, "Fine, whatever."
Incident 3: Our 1st grader’s class was instructed to read aloud the poem “Earth Day” (by Jane Yolen). The first stanza begins “I am the Earth and the Earth is me”, and continues from there.  The poem constitutes earth worship and pantheism. I wrote a respectful letter to the teacher asking her to consider our objection when choosing future curriculum. The principal told the teacher not to respond to us; that the principal instead would.
Meeting 1 with principal, April 24: The end result here was that I was banned from volunteering because I had been spreading “negativity”, since I had forwarded my husband’s letter to two other teachers, and because I had attempted to address some of my curriculum concerns with the teachers during my volunteer time. I went home and composed a blog detailing these events. (Blog can be found here:
Meeting 2 with principal, April 26: The principal had asked for another meeting with us, suggesting that an agreement could be reached. Instead of discussing an agreement, the principal informed me that she had found my blog and was contacting her legal department concerning it. As of tonight, no further communication has been received from the principal and that is where this issue now stands.

How I Was Banned from Volunteering at My Children’s Government-Run School

It started with my husband’s (Bill Ward) e-mailed letter regarding the showing of the global warming propaganda film “An Arctic Tale” (“a lush, Disney-like, quasi-scientific, agenda driven film produced to indoctrinate children into believing the deceit of man-made global warming. Throughout the film, narrator/entertainer Queen Latifah, actress, and ‘polar bear expert’ makes repeated allusions to how the rising temperature is affecting the animals in the ‘ice kingdom’”) in my 2nd grader’s classroom. My husband stated in his letter that the showing of this film to 2nd graders was inappropriate because they lack the reasoning ability to distinguish truth from false and politically manipulated data.

In an attempt to also educate my 1st and 2nd graders’ previous teachers, in whose classes I had volunteered in past years, and with whom (I thought) I had developed good relationships, I forwarded my husband’s letter to them in confidence, hoping they could use the information to inform their teaching.

After my husband had written the letter, I continued to volunteer in my two daughters’ classrooms as before. On Wednesday, April 3rd , at the conclusion of my volunteering session in my 2nd grader's class at Wayne Elementary, while the children were in the hall and returning to their classroom from the library, I asked the second grade teacher, “Did you receive my husband’s e-mail?” She responded angrily, “Yes I did. I’m still processing it. I don’t know how to respond.” I said, “If you’d like to meet to discuss it, we are willing to do that.” She responded, shaking with anger, “No, I really wouldn’t.” 

The teacher eventually did write an e-mail response to my husband’s letter on “An Arctic Tale”, which stated:

 “I have read your email.  Exposing students to a variety of resources and understanding vocabulary is part of the Common Core Standards which our curriculum is based upon. Having said that, I don't feel it is necessary to pursue this topic any further.”

…to which my husband responded:

“This raises two questions:

1.  What does understanding vocabulary have to do with the showing of “An Arctic Tale"?
2.  Is there no standard for the truthfulness of the resources presented?

Openness and understanding is most necessary, Bill Ward”

The teacher ultimately responded, 

“Mr. and Mrs. Ward,
If you have any further concerns or questions, please contact our principal, M. Principal. 
M. Teacher”

So we set up an appointment with the principal. 

In the meantime, life went on, and both my daughters brought home “Social and Emotional Learning” homework from the “Second Step Program” (an IL state-mandated educational program dedicated to teaching “empathy and emotion management”). The homework required students to state ways they managed their emotions and/or showed respect and coached parents on how to teach these skills to children. The homework was required to be signed by parents. We objected to being told how to raise our children, and so decided to ignore the homework and not turn it in.

On April 17th, my second-grader came up to me during my volunteering time and said, “Mommy, I have to turn in that sheet [on social and emotional learning] tomorrow or I will be in trouble.” Since the teacher had pressed my daughter, I said to her, at the end of my volunteering time (again in the hallway and not directly in front of students – this becomes important later) “M. Teacher, it’s not my daughter's doing that the homework on the emotional stuff was not turned in. I’m not super comfortable with…” and here M. Teacher angrily cut me off and said, “Fine, whatever” and turned away from me so that no further discussion was possible.  I wrote a follow up letter to the principal describing the second grade teacher's unacceptable behavior in anticipation of our meeting with the principal.

Upon further research into the “Second Step” program, I learned that it is produced by an organization called “The Committee for Children”, “a nonprofit working globally to promote children’s social and academic success.” Browsing their website I discovered an entire page dedicated to LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) issues. Since I had had a good relationship with my 1st grader’s teacher up until this point, I decided to bring this to her attention. During my volunteering time in her class, during a break in the action, and being careful not to disrupt things, and making sure none of the children could see the web page on my iPad, I showed the teacher the page. Her eyes grew large and she said, “We don’t discuss that here”, to which I responded that I was sure she didn’t but that I was concerned that school money was being spent with this organization for the Second Step curriculum. I later found out she told the principal that I had expressed concern about it. 

Then came “Earth Day”. On April 22, my 1st grader brought home a poem called, “Earth Day” by Jane Yolen, which reads:

“I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone.
And just as I
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here
That’s why we
Celebrate this day.
That’s why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.”

I wrote the following response:

“M. Teacher,

My daughter brought home this poem yesterday and told us that the class read it aloud together:

While the poem expresses a sentiment that may seem like it merely expresses admiration for the earth, stating that “I am the Earth…And the Earth is me” (notice the capitalization of the word “Earth”) is actually Earth worship. Indeed, the religion that believes God is in everything and everyone, and that we are all part of each other and the earth is called pantheism. Or, to quote from Wikipedia, “Pantheism is the view that everything is part of an all-encompassing immanent abstract God; or that the universe, or nature, and God are equivalent.” This is in direct opposition to the teachings of mainstream Christianity (and Judaism); indeed, it would be considered idolatry. (I am sure that was not your intention). I certainly would not want my daughter mouthing these words in worship of the Earth. 

Please consider this when choosing future curriculum.”

Instead of answering me, M. Teacher forwarded my letter to the principal. 

And that brings me to April 24, 2013. I had shown up at my normal volunteering time for my second grader's class but was told that M. Teacher had to leave suddenly and my services would not be needed. I later found out that the principal happened to be visiting my 2nd grader’s classroom and my daughter asked where I was. M. Principal lied to my daughter and told her that I had a meeting with M. Principal at 11 AM and so couldn’t volunteer in M. Teacher's class today. 

Then we had our meeting with the principal. M. Principal first stated that the school secretary would be taking notes during our meeting. 

We then discussed the film “The Arctic Tale”, and M. Principal defended the second grade teacher's assertion that the film was a part of Common Core and further emphasized that M. Teacher's intention was merely to show a film about Arctic Regions, since the class had just finished studying that topic. Any objective observer would have to admit that the film has an agenda, asserted my husband and I. We stated that anything could be read by the students with the purported purpose of “understanding vocabulary” (“Are we going to read “Mein Kampf” or The Koran?” we asked). This part of the discussion was lengthy, with us asserting that the film had an agenda and the principal stating that the agenda was not the second grade teacher's motivation. 

We then discussed the Second Step program and its connection to the radical gay agenda. M. Principal said that piece was not covered in elementary school but probably would be in higher grades.

We discussed the poem “Earth Day” and my e-mail to the 1st  grade teacher, and how M. Principal disagreed that it constituted Earth worship, but they would re-consider the message in the future. 

Then came the really bad news. Because I had forwarded my husband’s letter to the second grade teacher to two other teachers (at least one of them had alerted the principal to this fact), I had created “negativity”. Because I had discussed these issues with teachers during my volunteering time, I was “disruptive”. (Although recall, the second grade teacher refused to meet with us so I had no other opportunity to discuss anything with her). Given that I was “negative” and “disruptive”, I would not be allowed to volunteer in my children’s classrooms any longer. I asked for a copy of the notes taken by the secretary, and M. Principal responded, “No, those are my personal notes.”  I told her a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request would be issued.

We have not hidden from our children the agenda that is being presented by the teachers in the cases above and why it is wrong. Nor have we hidden our struggle with their teachers from them. I came home early from work to write this article and greeted my children as they came home from school. I told them I could no longer volunteer in their classrooms and the reasons why. My children started to cry and so did I. Why it is not possible to have an open dialogue with their teachers regarding their education on things that matter is perplexing and it saddens me greatly.

WYLL AM1160 Christian Talk Radio in Chicago Replaces Sandy Rios with Leftism

Karl Clauson (of , who occupies (pun intended) Sandy Rios' former Christian Talk spot on AM1160, WYLL in Chicago, today (March 26, 2012) had a guest on who gleefully proclaimed that “black” and “white” “Churches” in Chicago were showing their solidarity with the deceased Trayvon Martin in Florida by wearing “hoodies”. Karl then went on to say that “we aren’t focused on taking sides; we’re focusing on the spiritual side of this struggle.” No, wearing hoodies to show solidarity isn’t taking sides, is it Karl? And since when are there “black Churches” and “white Churches”? Maybe Karl and his guest are not familiar with Galatians 3:28 and Colossians 3:11. Who are the ones who are always calling attention to race? This is NOT CHRISTIANITY. THIS IS LEFTISM MASQUERADING AS CHRISTIANITY. AND IT MAKES MY BLOOD BOIL.  I called both the Karl Clauson show (but wasn’t put on the air), and the program manager at WYLL. THIS HAS GOT TO STOP.

Afterwards, I did some more research on the guest who made this statement. It turns out, it was none other than Pastor “Choco”. This pastor ran for Mayor of Chicago. This pastor, in an interview which can be read here: , boasted that:

“Barack Obama, addressed me to be a surrogate for him to travel around the country.  After several series of meetings, I took on the position of an advisor to the President, to be able to go and galvanize the evangelical vote for him. So that qualifies me, on that end, that the President of the United States saw something in me to represent him around the country.”

It is beyond belief that a pastor would brag about his association with the most anti-Biblical president in our nation's history. 

Another guest on Karl’s program today was Mark DeYmaz (, who is famous for promoting “multi-cultural” Churches. How does one obtain a “multicultural church” except by actively seeking so many of this race and so many of that race? Wouldn’t it be better to be a “color-blind” Church? Preach the gospel, the true gospel, and they will come.

Finally, back to Karl Clauson himself, who claimed in one of his blogs that “we’ve hoarded and called it the American dream” ( Behold a self-righteous Christianity which disdains American exceptionalism and the most God-blessed nation of all time. It is only because of the spilled blood of Christian patriots that this sanctimonious fool does not have to spill his own. Behold the gospel according to Judas, the gospel of envy, the gospel of division by race, the gospel of poverty, monkism, and flogging oneself, the gospel of saving oneself by works, the gospel of the hatred of David, Solomon, and the Apostles James and John (who all were rich…were they “hoarders”, Karl?), the gospel of the Great Apostasy, the gospel of Lucifer.

Compassion International Now Infiltrated by Leftism

by Bill Ward:

Notice to end my sponsorship:

After 20+ years of sponsoring children through Compassion International, I am saddened to say that I am at the brink of withdrawing my support. We’ve already withdrawn our support from World Vision which has drifted so far from the true gospel into a left leaning one-world agenda that even their Christmas cards no longer speak about Jesus. They speak in politically correct phrases and are hesitant to proclaim the message of Christ.

The latest issue of Compassion Magazine featured an advertisement for live58; that, for me, is a huge red flag that Compassion has taken a big step in the same direction. I’ve read Isaiah 58 many times and it has little to do with anything that this collective of organizations is pretending to do. I say “pretending” because the very statement “ending extreme poverty” is a populace, left wing, pseudo-Christian marketing fantasy that simply will never happen.

This is and never has been the focus of Isaiah 58, nor of the Bible, nor of the ministry of Jesus Christ. Have you never read Mark 14:7 “the poor you have with you always” - I guess Jesus himself wasn't hip enough with the program of live58. It seems clear, that from the very mouth of Jesus, the dream of ending extreme poverty is a religious, hopeful fantasy; that indicates a distorted theology about why Jesus came to the world, as well as the very nature of man and his relationship to the world.

In the Bible, the word “world” is rarely used in a positive sense, but rather in the negative, to distinguish the unsaved from the saved, the people of God from the people of the “world”; the wheat from the tares. And yet, in this leftist “Christian” view, there is “World Vision” and “World Relief”; a “Christian Reformed World Relief Committee” and global initiatives everywhere. The language of the left is everywhere throughout live58. No longer do they seek to save lost souls from the world, they now seek to redeem the world itself and thus, have become part of the world, and are spreading the propaganda of the world. This is the very program of anti-christ.

 The organizations you’re partnering with are worldly focused, left-leaning groups. They do not share the “commitment to Christ” that you claim on your website as that which makes you distinct. They use the name of Christ as a symbolic caricature in order to advance precepts which are foreign to the teachings of Christ, rather than making Christ Himself the very end and purpose for their existence. Christ did not come to earth to end poverty and injustice, for if he did, he died and departed this world a complete failure. Truth be told, this is what Judas Iscariot thought Christ’s purpose was, and it became his stumbling stone. He could not comprehend Christ’s words, “...but you will not always have Me”. Christ is indeed a King, but not the king of this world.

Let’s review these groups:

There is “Plant with Purpose” whose mission is to support the left’s fraudulent green agenda. They adhere to the over-hyped environmentalist notion of “deforestation” as being the cause of poverty. This is the religion of the planting of trees, a type of earth worship, as if trees don’t know how to plant themselves.

Then there is the Micah Challenge’s a “global (a more leftist term than “world”) coalition (“collective”) of Christians (dubious) holding governments accountable (the same tyrannical governments that are the very root of the poverty) for their promise (a fantasy promise that was never made and will never be kept because it won’t be, and can’t be) to halve extreme poverty”. -This is all what leftist religious people call “hope and change” and what real Christians and honest people know as false hope and lies; the propaganda of Anti-christ. It will never happen, it can’t happen, not until Christ returns and judges this world and establishes a new heaven and new earth.

Then there’s the International Justice Mission which is another way of saying “social justice” (another way of saying Marxism). They’re interested in “human rights” (another left wing concept that cannot be found in the Bible that you claim to revere).

Then there’s ECHO’s statement “In a time of rising food prices, more women, children and men are facing hunger and malnutrition. The need for sustainable solutions has never been greater.” -So the need has “never been greater” but I read that poverty and hunger have been reduced by half in only the last 20 years according to the fraudulent claim of live58. So which lie is the real lie and which is the half lie? What I do know is that for the two decades that I’ve been supporting Compassion, along with thousands of others, the selling of this false hope never ceases and the cry for more aid is forever increasing.

Then there’s HOPE that “believes that micro-finance (whatever that is) can be a powerful force in changing (Christ did not come to change the world, -this is what Judas thought; but He came to save individuals out of the world) the world (again, the theme is the world) for the better and that loving people as Christ loved others means caring for both physical and spiritual needs.” And what would those “spiritual needs” be? Maybe they need to be saved, perhaps? Christ loved the world (meaning the ungodly) by laying down his life; not by “caring for both physical and spiritual needs” -this is the language of guidance counselors, not the Bible.

Then there is Living Water International (LWI) which “implements sustainable (a leftist word taken from the green movement) water”. Jesus made a clear distinction between this ordinary water, which He states is, in fact, not sustainable, with the true “Living Water” which quenches fully; and yet this organization is concerned, not with the true living water, but rather with the ordinary water, and then, calling it “Living Water” -for marketing purposes I suppose. Other than this, Living Water International (LWI) has a fairly biblical mission statement.

Then there is World Relief which has a mission statement that is so riddled with leftist “one world”, and “transformational” gobbledygook it makes one's stomach turn.

All of this is, truly, the gospel according to Judas, which is leftist social evolution. It is entirely focused on the needs of this world; on perfecting this world rather than proclaiming the kingdom of heaven. The King of Kings spoke of Himself as indeed a King but not as a king of this world. But Judas and the people always sought to make him a king of this world who would end sickness and starvation and grant peace to the nations. This thinking is in direct contradiction with the true gospel, and the true meaning of the Bible and even Isaiah 58. Jesus made it quite clear that He did not come to bring world peace but rather a sword of division. (Matt 10:34)

I could go on and on stating endless examples of anti-christian, leftist, and wrong-headedness that could literally fill a book. Compassion has seemingly lost its way and gradually slipped from its calling to where it has succumbed to the gospel of social evolution. So ingrained is this false gospel in much of the contemporary church that Compassion is probably unaware of how far from the true gospel it has strayed. Evangelicalism has been superseded by a new ecumenicalism which has adopted the collectivist mission, and then mouths the propaganda of the cultural left. To this end, Compassion has become a puppet, forever enslaved by the world to the Sisyphean task of eradicating world hunger and poverty; and thus, in the long run, doing more harm than good.

I hope you will discern the nature of the groups you are partnering with and separate yourself from them. Return to your original commission: “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Unless you plan on breaking your ties with these left -wing organizations and return to simply saving souls and preaching the true gospel, I feel compelled to ask you to please end my sponsorship immediately. Please send me confirmation of this.

Sincerely, and with a heavy heart,
Bill Ward

Out of the mouth of babes You have ordained strength

My daughter Charlotte (who is in the 1st grade) came home from school yesterday and asked my husband Bill, "Daddy, who is Oolah?" He determined that Charlotte had a conversation about Allah with one of her classmates. It went something like this:

During reading time (the students read to one another), one of Charlotte's classmates was reading a book about planets to her. The little girl told Charlotte, "Allah made the planets." Charlotte said, "No, he didn't. God did. You need to get a Bible." She was so sweet in the way she said it. She told us, "I tried to say it quietly." Bill told Charlotte she needs to pray for the little girl, and be a good friend to her. At bedtime prayers, he asked Charlotte if she wanted to pray for her classmate, and Charlotte said, "I already have. I prayed for her while I was sitting on the toilet." :-)

Psalm 8:2:
Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
You have ordained strength,
Because of Your enemies,
That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.

Matthew 21:15-16: But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant and said to Him, “Do You hear what these are saying?”

And Jesus said to them, “Yes. Have you never read,

‘ Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
You have perfected praise’?”

Bill Ward's Speech to U-46 School Board: Re: Chief of Equity and Social Justice

Background: Our school district, U-46, recently hired a "Chief of Equity and Social Justice". It made national news. See: My husband Bill and I attended last night's School Board Meeting and he gave the following speech:

"All hail the new chief of equity and social justice, voted in unanimously without consent or hearing, by the mind-numbing naivety of the U46 school board.

And how pleasant it sounds. Equity, social Justice, and fairness and for all our children. But educationally speaking social justice is not concerned with individual excellence, but rather in the equalization of outcomes. The equalization of outcomes has always been a religious myth of the progressive left. It does violence to the very laws of nature, and it dispirits the exceptional. The job of this school system is to educate the students toward excellence, and that’s it! It is not for transforming society or establishing some mythological social equity.

But more to the point, social justice is all about the redistribution of wealth. Forget the propaganda, it's ALL about the money. The redistribution of wealth is absolutely central to social justice. And this, is simply a nicer word for stealing. Why steal money the old fashion way: illegally with a gun. It’s much more pleasant to don a suit and tie and a big smile and do it “legally”. But social justice takes it even one step further, because some tender hearted people are still uncomfortable with legalized theft. So the our new chief will show us how, it’s not only legal , but it’s actually the moral thing to do. Why only the truly immoral and greedy among us want to hold onto our wealth and provide for our own families. And so in the upside down world of social justice, self reliance becomes immoral, and stealing becomes a virtue.

Unless of course you are talking about the unions and the administrators. Because the dirtiest little secret is that very little of this stolen money ever trickles down to the underprivileged it was intended for. Rather it ends up in the coffers of the district; and thus into the pockets of the union and the administrators in the form of even more social programs, greater prestige, higher salaries, perks and benefits. And here we are again today as another $132,000 a year more of our money is wasted on another failed idea from the religious left. Every teacher making one half or a third of this amount should be livid. Where are you? Speak up.

This school district and other districts have become like children in a sandbox, who, instead of creating something beautiful out of the sand and toys available, become consumed with envy and spend their energy conspiring how to steal more sand and toys from the other children; because it's just not fair! Thus the lie of social justice becomes attractive as a self-righteous excuse, and a moral imperative, of why it's okay to steal."
