Letter: God taken out of schools
Re Sandra L. Morrison’s letter, “We have turned our backs on God” (Monitor, Dec. 18):
Morrison made many important points which will probably go unheeded by a godless society. Some people have asked, “Why did God let the Connecticut massacre happen in a school?” The answer, of course, is that we don’t let the name of God in schools anymore. A silent time at the beginning of the school day doesn’t cut it because students don’t even hear that there is a God.
Ancient Israel had the same problem that the United States is going through now. They turned their backs on God, and all 12 tribes – not just 10 – were scattered worldwide. Learn from them. Our leaders are ignoring the rules of order that God laid out for us over 2,000 years ago. When we follow them, we succeed. When we don’t, we fail.
