Should Martin Luther King on God's Law Be Taught in Public Schools?

By Rick Pearcey • August 26, 2009, 07:50 AM

"On the 46th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s March on Washington, Education Secretary Arne Duncan declined to say whether King’s view that just laws are based on God's law should be taught in public schools," reports CNSNews.com.
"In his famous 'Letter from Birmingham Jail,' King expressed his classical belief, based on the teachings of St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas as well as the Founding Fathers, that a just law is a law that comports with the law of God and an unjust law is a law that does not comport with the law of God."

Comment: The real factor prohibiting the teaching about the Creator in the public schools is an imposed secularism, not the U.S. Constitution.

The real threat to liberty in America comes not from teaching about our true Creator, upon whom the American republic is founded.

No, the real threat derives from a secular state, which seeks to impose an alien, false, and inhumane ideology upon American life and thought.

In that un-American, unconstitutional and anti-Declarational world, Martin Luther King and his "Letter From Birmingham" will forever be at the back of the bus. 

Far better for free-thinking Americans to act upon our "unalienable rights" -- endowed not by some privatized, abstract religiousity, "faith," or "value," but by a living, factual, and rationally knowable Creator who is a public figure.

Far better to show secularist tryanny the door at the next bus stop.

Let freedom ride. Up front.
