Public Schools Continue Ignoring Judeo-Christian Observances While Focusing on Islamic And Other Spiritual Traditions

As the celebration of Easter comes to a close, those of us in the public education system are returning from the neutered holiday known as Spring Break. It is the same phenomenon that occurs over the Christmas season, when a week or two are set aside for the objectively accurate, yet watered down nomenclature of Winter Break. Both are terms that purposefully erases the legacy of Christian roots in America under the guise of tolerance.


If the fools that run public education were truly concerned about imposing any semblance of religiosity on students and staff, they certainly go about it an odd way. At the same time that Christmas and Easter are ostensibly ignored, public education is awash in lessons about Islam during the period of significant holidays in that faith. Despite a multitude of opportunities during one of the most important months in Christianty – Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday, Good Friday, Lent, and Easter itself, neither a district communication nor spam email (from one of hundreds of woke curriculum companies) in my work inbox indicated Christians around the world were celebrating or renewing their faith.


At the same time, in the midst of Holy Week itself no less, my inbox became inundated with reminders of the impending arrival of Ramadan, a period of significance in the Muslim Faith. Headings of how to better serve my Muslim students or how to incorporate silenced voices in my lessons were the norm. Public education used to value diversity of thought, so the fact that Ramadan enters the curriculum is just another reminder of how good and decent our society is; what other cultures spend time on competing ideologies in their public school system? Now, however, the blatant omission of Christian observances and the intentional reminder of some of the most important dates in the Muslim calendar only reinforces the perniciousness of public education. 

The same could be said of even innocuous-seeming celebrations like New Years events. Go to most schools in January, and you are likely to see displays of dragons, fireworks, and other imagery related to the Chinese New Year. Again, the volume of work emails likewise attest to the seeming importance of the holiday. Schools with large Hmong populations experience a similar hoopla in early December. Most readers are likely familiar with the term “Tet” for the Vietnamese New Year. 


That being said, the Jewish High Holy Day of Rosh Hashanah, literally “head of the year,” is unknown in elementary and secondary classrooms. The same indifference and general ignorance is true of Yom Kippur. If students know anything of Judaism, it is that they have candles on a menorah. How many candles? Why burn them at all? What does it commemorate? It would be inaccurate to suggest that these questions do not bother superintendents. The nonresponse in these situations only highlights how school leaders willfully engage in religious obstructionism. The big picture explanation of this is that if students do not learn about the goodness of these days and religions  (i.e. Chrisitanity and Judaism), then they can more easily ruin them.

For the increasing number of school districts with established and/or large influxes of Hispanic students, the sheer madness of simultaneous cultural erasure and culture celebration is on full display. Most districts have moved away from Halloween altogether. While communication to families pretends that costumes distract from the learning experience, or that costumes are an insensitive appropriation, the real reason is merely that Halloween has roots in America’s past. Therefore, it has to go. If schools were concerned about learning loss, especially those located in urban centers, they would actually suspend or expel uninterested, unruly, and violent students. This past year has also shown how little the system cares about student learning. If it did, they would have brought students and teachers back up the classroom. 


While October 31st disappears from school calendars, November 1st usually plays a more prominent role. Make no mistake, costumery doesn’t go away at all. As with the Chinese New Year, the Day of the Dead marks a day, perhaps a week, of intentional cultural instruction where students learn about spiritual rites and familial apparitions of chiefly Mexican origins. The fun and harmless creation of Halloween is taboo, but colorful skeletons from across the border are okay.


Of course, none of any of this comes as a surprise to those that are in the system or follow the news cycle. Critical Race Theory has utterly incapacited most peoples’ ability to think clearly on anything, even within foundational subjects like math, reading, and writing. Race hustling is everywhere, but given that leftism is arguably one of the most important religions of our time, it must also compete against the Judeo-Christian values to truly win the cultural wars for the West’s hearts and minds. For all intents and purposes, the only resistance to the tenets of CRT are those who count themselves among the God-fearing. 


All parents would do well to speak up at their next school board meeting and ask why most religious observances from Arab, Asian, and Hispanic nations feature so prominently whereas the Judeo-Christian dates are summarily buried. Government cannot endorse nor establish a religion; given that public schools are governmental systems, they need to either include everyone or include no one at all.

5 thoughts on “Public Schools Continue Ignoring Judeo-Christian Observances While Focusing on Islamic And Other Spiritual Traditions

  1. Christian-Judeo observances have been misunderstood for eons because they are not thoroughly explained to the believers. Educators do not, and cannot teach them because in all likelihood they themselves do not know in-depth the significance of those observances, hence their evasive action! One, even a teacher, cannot be expected to teach something he doesn’t know!

    I’m a new author and I have a book that explains them all in plain language. My book is GOD’S COVENANT: EXTINCT OR EXTANT? See ad at:

    https://books.google.com.ph/books?id=kfklEAAAQBAJ&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_atb&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q&f=false

    I have issued a more polished version of the book which booksellers are now sending out, but their internet ads are not updated.

    I’m of Jewish extraction, Filipino by nationality, born Catholic, now unaffiliated Christian, been to Israel and other parts of the world as member of Philippine Diplomatic Missions. I can discuss those observances in detail if you will let me. But they’re all in my book!

  2. I’m not goingto bore you with a 25 paragraph copy and paste.I’ll just say that all of these problems are problems because we are allowing them. If you do not agree with the way kids are being taught, take your kids out of that school or move out of state. There are stiil many places where America is a good place to live instead of some terrible place the way liberals describe it.

  3. I am not Judeo-Christian.

    I am Greco-Roman-Renaissance-Enlightenment-Christian.

    Why Wall Street Capitalists

    Hate Families

    and

    Nationhood

    Wall Street, Adolph Hitler, Red China

    and

    Republican Internationalists
    (a/k/a vulture capitalists)

    Republican internationalists have a vested interest in the destruction of the nuclear family and nationhood.

    Most corporate businessmen are not ethical people. Businessmen who are ethical reflect the good moral values of their neighbors, and they generally are found in small stores in small communities.

    President and Founder Thomas Jefferson said this about greedy businessmen:

    “Merchants have no country. The mere spot
    they stand on does not constitute so strong
    an attachment as that from which they draw
    their gains.”

    Western merchants knowingly sold Hitler the means to wage war – and the chemical with which to gas millions – while contemporary “American” businessmen sell Red China the means to destroy our cities in a future confrontation.

    And if asked to explain their bottom-line self-interests, businessmen resort to their if-I-don’t-sell-it-to-them-somebody-else-will vulgarity, as if making the sale justifies the means and end.

    Do you really think Wall Street is a family-friendly financial center? No (and The Wall Street Journal is vulture capitalists’ champion rag. It stinks to high heaven of immoral compromise and anti-American duplicity).

    Most Wall Streeters are evil men and women who hide behind a clean but false veneer of business suits and Better Business Bureaus—which mostly protect unethical business practices not customers, and which veneer keeps you dumb and merchants rich.

    Free-trade Republicans mean just that—f r e e t r a d e!: no restrictions on the flow of people and goods, which kind of trade destroys family, community, and nation, to which argument a Republican internationalist might say, “But if I don’t destroy family, community and nation for profit, somebody else will.”

    America is becoming a free-trade brothel for anything-goes Global Commerce, which partly explains her moral and cultural decline (Marxist/socialist/feminist liberals play the other part).

    Why would a businessman want controls on culture-destroying immigration from the Third World? Every warm body sneaking across the border, and every legal immigrant, is a potential customer in retail stores.

    That’s why NAFTA was passed in the face of a coming, massive increase in crime and drugs—to infect Americans from and through Mexico, not to mention illegals (and drugs) smuggled on NAFTA trucks; and that’s why the tourist, airline, and communications industries don’t care who is legal and who is not.

    Citizenship and nationhood impede profits! The more influx of immigrants and “visitors” from outside the U.S. – the latter containing a large percentage of I’m-going-to-stay visa holders – the more air flights, hotel bookings et al., and long-distance telephone calls to overseas friends and relatives.

    Why would church and synagogue businessmen want controls on immigration? Catholic Charities and Jewish Family Services rake in millions each year by helping the State Department resettle diverse races in white communities across America, not to mention their recruiting members in the exchange. And religious organizations can gain by family breakups and cultural disruptions. During the every-one-can-get-rich Roaring Twenties churches and synagogues suffered poor attendance, but during the Great Depression membership shot up (during the Dark Ages, religionists ruled).

    Why would a businessman want controls on welfare? Every cent that you turn over for redistribution to welfare recipients is money you can’t save, but change jingling in capitalists’ pockets. Business owners don’t pay taxes but pass them on to customers.

    They’ll complain about high taxes stifling business, but they’d rather have confiscatory taxation for welfare recipients – to keep money out of savings and in circulation – than high saving rates among consumers.

    Why would a businessman want to reduce family breakups? Every family that falls apart is more money spent on lawyers, moving trucks, apartments, homes, household appliances, restaurants, hotel rooms and day care centers.

    Why would a businessman want a nation of stay-at-home moms who’ll prepare and serve meals at home, and instruct their children in moral virtue, rather than join the grubby workforce of fast-food addicts keeping all those artery-clogging outlets happy (now Third World nations suffer that anti-health, anti-family blight killing Americans)?

    Why would a businessman want controls on abortion? That industry puts billions of dollars in merchants’ pockets, which situation pits one kind of bad businessman against another: Killing wombed babies may make rich those merchants of death but the human slaughterhouses reduce population growth, which growth underpins capitalists’ economies—and which necessary underpinning explains Republican internationalists’ open-borders immigration policy in a nation of abortionists.

    Why would a businessman want controls on pornography? That industry puts billions of dollars in merchants’ pockets, helping to break up families and instruct each new generation on sex-gratification techniques for use outside the bonds of matrimony.

    Why commit to the rigors of family life when men and women can have sexual fun instead? And why uphold an institution that puts a drag on capitalists’ god:
    C o n s u m e r i s m ?

    Why would a businessman want controls on people-destroying gambling, tobacco and booze? Gambling is no less an evil than pornography, both of which are cancers on the nuclear family, community and nation. Tobacco pimps (businessmen) target children because they are easy prey and future addicts (customers). And now that nicotine pushers have been corralled because of all the sick and dying across America, booze companies have stepped up their drug-pushing ads everywhere—even though booze does far more harm to children, adults, community and nation than tobacco ever did!

    Why would a businessman even want nation-states to exist? Any block to the movement of people and goods impinges on trade and profit-taking. That’s why Sundays are no longer a day of rest.

    Why would “American” businessmen care whether you and your family are safe from Chinese nuclear rockets? They don’t, which is why American merchants McDonnell Douglas, Hughes Electronics and Loral Space and Communications betrayed their nation for profit, as Lenin predicted: “The capitalists of the whole world and their governments will close their eyes on the kinds of [grim and unscrupulous] activities I have described and will become blind as well as deaf-mutes. They will extend loans which will provide us with the equipment and technology we lack and will thus help rebuild our military industry, which we need to launch subsequent victorious attacks against our suppliers. In other words, the capitalist nations will always work to prepare their own suicide.”

    Why would our vulture-capitalist controlled House and Senate care about flag, family and nation when they draw their gains from traitorous capitalists working the halls to buy politicians’ influence?

    Profit is Republican internationalists’ god. Despise them. Hate them (read my essay, “The Internationalists”). Because while they gloat in their unbridled profit-taking, a tiny part of which they pass along to you to keep you distracted from what’s really at stake, your family and your nation – your lives and moral freedoms – are being traded away by them for mere profit; read my essay, “Capitalism and Marxism,” about how bad aspects of both destroy white Western civilization – the founding race and culture – in America.

    What does it profit a nation to gain all the world’s markets but lose its soul—its founding race and culture?

    P.S.

    The anthropological definition of the much-abused term, “nation,” is: “a people of common ancestry,” which definition fits the Founders’ America—now in steep moral, cultural, racial and financial decline [[ Note: While all extant – published – economic indicators are up, with Internet dot-com “businesses” marching stocks towards never-before-seen highs, the REALITY – the behind-the-scenes reality – is terrifying! ]].

    FBI Statistics on Crime :

    Read/Study below FBI-related article, about the hidden statistics on black-on-white crime in America (( MSM refuse to report the awful impact that black people have had on white civil society in the U.S. —for DECADES ! )) :

    “Paul Sheehan, an Australian reporter, dug out the following Information for an article in the Sydney Morning Herald, May 2, 1995.

    “Sheehan based his statistics on crime data compiled by the FBI and partially reported each year in The FBI Uniform Crime Report . These reports can be researched at the FBI’s website, http://www.fbi.gov.

    “Since the FBI doesn’t distinguish between Hispanics and whites, Sheehan’s statistics don’t adequately reflect the black-on-white crime situation.

    “Only about 10-15% of Hispanics are white, with the rest being Indian or a mixture of white, American Indian, and blacks.

    “Hispanic crime rates are almost as high as black crime rates. This means that the data Sheehan compiled on inter-racial crime is probably grossly understated since a considerable portion of the ‘white against black’ crime actually is Hispanic-against-black crime. (Information about this aspect of inter-racial crime will be presented in a related article.)

    “Here is the information Sheehan uncovered in his analysis of the FBI’s crime reports:

    -“Blacks murder more than 1,600 whites each year.

    -“Blacks murder whites at 18 times the rate whites murder blacks.

    -“Blacks murdered, raped, robbed, or assaulted about one million whites In 1992.

    -“In the last 30 years, blacks committed 170 million violent and non-violent crimes against whites.

    -“Blacks under 18 are more than 12 times more likely to be arrested for murder than whites under 18.

    -“About 90% of the victims of interracial crimes are white.

    -“Blacks commit 7.5 times more violent interracial crimes than whites, although whites outnumber blacks by 7 to 1.

    -“On a per capita basis, blacks commit 50 times more violent crime than whites.

    -“Black neighborhoods are 35 times more violent than white neighborhoods.

    -“Of the 27 million nonviolent robberies in 1992, 31% (8.4 million) were committed by blacks against whites. Less than 2% were committed by whites against blacks.

    -“Of the 6.6 million violent crimes, 20% (1.3 million) were interracial.

    -“Of the 1.3 million interracial violent crimes, 90% (1.17 million) are black against white.

    -“In the past 20 years, violent crime increased four times faster than the population.

    -“In the last 30 years (1964-94), more than 45,000 people were killed in interracial murders compared to 38,000 killed in Korea and 58,000 in Vietnam.

    -“Sheehan commented that the contents of his article could not possibly be published or discussed in the U.S. mainstream media.

    -“In the last 50 years, the white part of the American population has declined from 90% to 72%.

    The U.S. now has about 33 million blacks and 25 million Hispanics (legal and illegal). By the year 2050, American whites will be a minority, just 49%. By 2100, whites will be 25% of the population.

    Senator Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA)
    Commenting on the passage of his
    (( his Commie Handlers’ )) Immigration
    Act of 1965–His (broken) P R O M I S E :

    “Out of deference to the critics, I want to comment on … what the bill
    will not do. First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants
    annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration
    remains substantially the same … Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country
    will not be upset … Contrary to the charges in some quarters, S.500 will
    not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or
    the most populated and economically deprived nations of Africa and Asia.
    In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed
    measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think.
    Thirdly, the bill will not permit the entry of subversive persons, criminals,
    illiterates, or those with contagious disease or serious mental illness. As I
    noted a moment ago, no immigrant visa will be issued to a person who is
    likely to become a public charge … the charges I have mentioned are
    highly emotional, irrational, and with little foundation in fact. They are out
    of line with the obligations of responsible citizenship. They breed hate of
    our heritage.” (Senate Part 1, Book 1, pp. 1-3)

    Read Aristotle’s warnings:

    On race-mixing:

    “Another cause of revolution is difference of races which do not at once acquire a common spirit; for a state is not the growth of a day, any more than it grows out of a multitude brought together by accident. Hence the reception of strangers in colonies, either at the time of their foundation or afterwards, has generally produced revolution.”

    On bad democracy:

    “[T]he last form of democracy . . . [in which] all share alike . . . [and] the leaders have been in the habit of including as many as they can, and making citizens not only of those who are legitimate, but even of the illegitimate . . . This is the way in which demagogues proceed. Whereas the right thing would be to make no more additions when the numbers of the commonality exceeds that of the notables and of the middle class,—beyond this not to go . . . [these] measures taken by tyrants appear all of them to be democratic. Such a government will have many supporters, for most persons would rather live in a disorderly than in a sober manner.”

    On how to install bad democracy:

    ”Fresh tribes and brotherhoods should be established; the private rites of families should be restricted and converted into public ones; in short, every contrivance should be adopted which will mingle the citizens with one another and get rid of old connections.”
