Try to open your church school now — the State says you can

Friday, August 7, 2020, 9:45 am | Randy Thomasson

For the sake of survival and for training children in academics, moral character, and the Word of God, Bible-based schools must try to reopen now.

Like in 1860, right before the Civil War, when there were official “slave” states versus “free” states, California, controlled by Democrat politicians, has made slaves out of its people, in contrast to numerous Republican states that are free from lockdowns and mask mandates.

On August 3, your California “slavemaster,” Gavin Newsom, controlled and spoke through his California Department of Public Health to issue this public statement:

Waiver Process for Elementary Schools to Resume In-Person Instruction  
On July 17, 2020 Governor Gavin Newsom announced that schools in counties that have been on the County Data Monitoring list within the prior 14 days, are only allowed to conduct distance learning and that there would be a waiver process that could allow some elementary schools in those counties to conduct in-person learning if they could meet stringent health requirements. State health officials noted recent scientific data showing that young children were far less likely to shed and transmit the virus.

Today, the California Department of Public Health is releasing that waiver process. A district superintendent, private school principal or head of school, or executive director of a charter school may apply for a waiver from the local health officer to open an elementary school for in-person instruction in a county on the monitoring list. This waiver is applicable only for grades TK-6, even if the grade configuration at the school includes additional grades. The application for a waiver must include an attestation that the applicant consulted with parent, labor, and community organizations at each school site for which an application is being submitted. 

This means religious schools may ask their county health officer for permission to reopen for in-person classroom instruction. Here’s the sample letter explaining how to make this happen (note that private schools only need to consult with school staff, not with “labor and community organizations.”) Here’s the full announcement with how-to links.

Even if you have to reopen in a slavish, limited, and politically-correct way, please reopen anyway. Your Bible-based school needs to survive and thrive, and so do the hearts, minds, and souls of the children you want to love and train.

Reopening, even under these oppressive regulations, would also help reopen California as whole. Church schools can lead the way to break the logjam of the Democrats’ destructive lockdown. Schools that stay closed will develop bad reputations when other schools successfully reopen to the joy of families. And if church schools discount their tuitions, they can attract more students. California Christian-format schools must try to reopen!

However, not all California counties will currently “permit” private schools to reopen. Note this from the Orange County Register: “But the waivers can only be considered in counties where coronavirus rates meet a certain threshold. And that means Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside county schools cannot apply under the current guidelines.”

Lastly, here’s documentation of the science that children aren’t threatened by, and don’t spread, COVID-19:

School Children Don’t Spread Coronavirus, French Study Shows
Schools have low coronavirus infection rate, German study finds
Children rarely transmit COVID-19, doctors write in new commentary
Children are not COVID-19 super spreaders: time to go back to school

I am afraid that the schools will prove the very gates of hell, unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures and engraving them in the heart of the youth.

Meet the violent Antifa anarchists

If you’re concerned about the looting, burning, and alarming mayhem in the United States of America, you need to learn about Antifa.

America’s new domestic terrorists
“Antifa” is short for anti-fascist — fascism being one-man rule, such as by World War 2 era dictators Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. Since the USA does not have a fascist form of government, antifa adherents have blurred vision from the start. Yet because they’re Marxist revolutionaries — against constitutional authority, against property-rights capitalism, and justify violence as a means to an end — it’s the antifa “troops” who are breaking windows, hurling incendiary devices, throwing rocks, and doing great harm.

President Donald Trump is correct that antifa are terrorists. Dressed in black and predominately Caucasian, antifa have “cells” all over the U.S. Taking advantage of the videoed police abuse of George Floyd in Minneapolis, antifa sprang into action on the heels of their Black Lives Matter counterparts. The violence that’s erupted is being led and primarily caused by antifa. What you are seeing is antifa’s militant Marxist platform, using brute force to attempt to simultaneously destroy government and businesses.

The sudden violence, which has included the complete destruction of a police station, and widespread looting, burning, and mayhem, has even caught liberal Democrats by surprise. As left-wing Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti exclaimed, “This is no longer a protest. This is destruction.” Because although today’s Democrat politicians and antifa share similar beliefs (they’re both godless, socialist, irresponsible, thieves, reverse racists, and historical revisionists redefining justice), Democrat politicians try to protect their government positions, which they adore, while anarchistic antifa attack all government, period.

Exacerbated by bad government and cheap-grace churches
As FNC’s Tucker Carlson pointed out, we elect representatives to protect us from harm, and elected officials that fail to quickly quell violent riots have failed us. This is why politically-incorrect foreign governments are laughing at us right now. Because the first three days of violence last week went unabated as liberal leaders coddled antifa and their Black Lives Matter cohorts, apparently regarding tear gas, rubber bullets, police batons, and deploying the national guard as too much. Yes, now arrests are happening, but will everyone whose property was destroyed be reimbursed by their negligent, mostly Democrat-run cities?

And not only did bad government contribute to the destruction you’re seeing, bad government influenced and invited antifa in the first place. Consider this: Why is antifa largely atheistic? Thirteen years of “God is dead” evolution indoctrination in the government-controlled schools. Why is antifa blaming outwardly instead of being humbly introspective? Bad government’s decades of rewarding irresponsibility, and not supporting Christian values, or life-long marriage, or even appropriate discipline of children. Why is antifa violent? Because gratuitous violence is celebrating in the media (liberal government no longer effectively prohibits “harmful matter”), and so many criminals are not being prosecuted, punished, or even serving out their full sentences.

Ultimately, the Church shares responsibility for the rise of antifa. For if righteous voting were a priority, we would have good, not bad, government. If religious liberty were valued, congregants would be taught the Christian precepts of our U.S. founding fathers. If the fear of God, specific sins, and hell were revealed like the Bible teaches, people would think twice before committing obvious sins. If Biblical justice for individuals based on personal merit were taught, a true view of evidence, fairness, and individual responsibility would thrive.

What’s more, if the Church taught holy discipleship, selfishness would be replaced by love for neighbor. If identity in Christ were taught, there would fewer racists and even fewer who falsely accuse others of racism. If family values were emphasized with accountability, personal responsibility and love for others would become a habit. And if sacrificial love and shepherding of children were taught like the Bible teaches, there would be a lot less youngsters in the atheism-teaching, irresponsibility-promoting, immorality-producing government schools.

Where did antifa comes from? They were bred close to home. The sooner we come to grips with this, the sooner we’ll embrace the Truth that can set us free.

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God…
