Diversity is diluting Christian culture

Because of a prayer ending "in Jesus' name" at a local school resulted in one parent's complaint, the school officials gave in to her complaint. The parent said "this is why we have separation of church and state." Separation of church and state has never been in the U.S. Constitution, and organizations like the ACLU have gotten questionable judges to rule basically that Christians should keep their mouths shut.

A local newspaper article stated that 842 institutions, including Marshall University, are receiving an Islamic book and film collection. I haven't heard any complaints.

If you have been around a while, you know that the American culture that resulted from Christian and Jewish immigrants from Europe has been under heavy attack since the 1960s. The young people of that era revolted against the ideals of their parents and formed a permanent group that continued to promote destruction of our customs and morals through cries about discrimination against homosexuals, Indians, blacks, women, etc., and through various attacks against our moral values.

Multiculturalism and diversity are practiced and taught in all teacher's colleges. As a result all teachers of our children are taught that philosophy. Our schools, industry, government and even some churches have programs to bring people with religions and customs that are counter to our own core beliefs under "visits" or "exchange" ideas. Many of those visitors never leave and take some of the best jobs our country offers. In addition, the resulting multiculturalism dilutes the long established Judeo-Christian culture until it has much less influence.

Liberals that help advance multiculturalism will eventually reap the rewards of their efforts. One of the pagan or false religions will eventually dominate and create a dictatorial government. The only country with true freedom and democracy ever will no longer exist.
