During his campaign for the White House in 2000, I remember George W. Bush promising to try to have Creationism considered to be taught by our public schools, or something to that effect. Since 2005, I have emailed, snail mailed, and faxed the White House, on numerous occasions, without a reply.
I’ve also written to Education Secretary Margaret Spellings more than twelve times, asking her to confer with the President about obtaining a directive, allowing the U.S. Dept of Education to send “Certificates of Completion” to science teachers that successfully complete a scientific Genesis awareness course, which teaches the truth about what early Genesis is conveying to mankind, and the scientific information it contains.
Both the White House and the US Dept of Education have been faxed about the need of science teachers being taught the truth about prehistoric history, so that they can teach the students something else besides the exclusive indoctrination of Atheism (evolution).
This is in line with what President Bush told the public during his first election campaign, and his July 2005 remarks about what he felt should be taught to public school students (all theories). Where is that “frame of mind” now? Is the President another Republican hypocrite?
Most every elected government office (if not all), has an “oath of office”, which the elected puts their hand on the Holy Bible, reciting an oath, ending with “So help me God”. “So help you God?” Oh really? Where is the belief in God when every single Governor in office, both in 2006 and in 2007, refuses to announce the availability of the Genesis class to their state and local boards?
School boards are not going to introduce education reform on their own. If Governor Fletcher of Kentucky can appeal to his state school board to have “ID” taught in their schools during his annual “state of the Commonwealth” address, then surely other governors can merely make a public announcement concerning this class, which is much more meaningful than the inept teachings of Intelligent Design. More hypocrites in office?
