I Hope My Daughter Hears the President’s Speech :: Desiring God

I Hope My Daughter Hears the President’s Speech :: Desiring God:

The following comment is in response to John Piper's post.
"IT all comes down to one basic thing. Obama overstepped his authority by speaking to school children and having lessons to go along witht the speech. The guidelines set by the constitution prohibits the Federal Government to step into the educational system that is run by each state. Obama was not the first president to speak to America's Children but he is the first to have structured lesson plans for the teachers to use. The origional lesson plans before the outcry of foul were stepping into a field of socialism. Asking children what they can do to help the president achieve his goals. and how they (students) should be accountable to Mayor's Govenors and the President as well as other elected officials. Read your constitution and you will understand I hope that it is the elected officials who are accountable to the people not the other way around.

Please think of this... God has graced us as US citizens to have a voice in our government. We are able to speak out against atrocities and bad government behavior. When we stand before Christ on judgement day and he asks... 'what did you do with the freedoms I gave you as a US citizen?' did you stand up for what is right or quietly cruise along trying not to cause any conflict in your life. How have you cast your vote?

Think about it."
