Education Matters: The Battle For Truth

Satan and this fallen world has an agenda to conform us into its image.  God also has an agenda. Disciples of Jesus Christ are to be transformed into His image in thought, word and deed.  Obviously these are mutually exclusive agendas, so it’s difficult if not impossible to find a compromise between these conflicting agendas.  Today we look at one of the powerful tools the enemy uses to advance his godless agenda: public education.  Mike and David are joined by Dr. Duke Pesta of Freedom Project Media and the Dr. Duke Show to see how government-run schools and progressive universities are putting the squeeze on anyone who does not conform to its humanist views.We discuss the  sad but not surprising news from the U.S. Senate vote Monday in which Democrats refused to even recognize that a baby surviving an abortion is entitled to life and medical care.  We also look at the decision made yesterday by the divided United Methodist Church regarding its stance on same-sex marriage and LGBTQ clergy.

The Dr. Duke Show, Religious Freedom, and Radicals in Academia

Dr Duke Show hosts, Duke Pesta and Katie Petrick of Freedom Project join us today for some almost unbelievable education updates. You’re not going to believe what is actually happening on college campuses and in public school classrooms in America. Some in the LGBTQ community are now openly admitting their goal is to “groom young children.” Their agenda has moved on from diversity to inclusion. We discuss what they mean by “inclusion.”

We look at recent news stories showing how government-run education is repressing Christian thought and expression.

We also explain the good news from Friday that a judge struck down De Pere’s extremely broad, non-discrimination ordinance. Judge William Atkinsion upheld our challenge and struck down the ordinance calling it unconstitutional, ruling in favor of Christian ministries and religious freedom.

So praise God! Our legal challenge to the City of De Pere’s “non-discrimination” ordinance was successful.

A Shift in Educational Priorities

The traditional purpose of education was to give children the basic skills they would need in life to grow into productive members of society, and able to earn a living. But we have seen a slow but dramatic shift in what education looks like over the past few decades. To some the focus now seems to be a sort of political indoctrination of our children, touting globalism and progressive ideals at the expense of teaching our children how to critically think and make their own decisions. This shift in priorities presents huge challenges for the future of our nation. When students only learn one side of an important argument how will they be equipped to deal with problems and opportunities that arise in a rational way? Dr. Duke Pesta and Katie Petrick of Freedom Project Media and the educational, informative Dr. Duke Show, join us to discuss these challenges.

Postmodernism & America’s Failed Education System

Alarming things are going on behind the scenes in public education that many parents have no idea about while many others are too busy to care. Since the 1960s, the system has flipped on its head. Political correctness and postmodernism have ruled American education to the point that by the college level, there now exists an intolerance of opposing views if students do not support liberal ideology and the progressive left. Hostility toward Christianity has been cultivated for decades as well.

Today, Mike and David welcome back a very busy, Dr. Duke Pesta, host of the new Dr. Duke Show. Also in studio, we have first time guest, Katie Petrick, Freedom Project Media contributor and co-host of the Dr. Duke Show.

From Pre-K through graduate school, the Dr. Duke Show will keep you informed about the highly politicized world of modern education, alerting you to the dangers facing our republic under God due to generations of under-educated and wrongly-educated students. You can watch the Dr. Duke Show live ‘On Demand’ every Thursday at 2 pm Central time or on Freedom Project.com.

Social Justice History of Public Schools leads to Radical New Sex Ed

Where do we even start? For decades, the national education system has been hijacked as social justice themes permeate what is being taught to children under the guise of health, growth, history, and socialization. At younger and younger ages, kids are learning about progressive ideas including inappropriate sexual content and the total eradication of the Christian worldview (biblical morality) from public school curriculum. 

Don’t believe me? Today we have an expert on the subject, Dr. Duke Pesta of Freedom Project and the Dr. Duke Show. Pesta is an educator, writer, and commentator who helped lead the fight to raise awareness about the dangers of Common Core ‘State Standards’ several years ago. His concerns fell on many deaf ears but today, you will see how he was proven right. The system as a whole is beyond redemption and parents must decide how their children will be educated.

Reports have been done. Whistles have been blown. Information has been available that has been rightly critical of the NEA, but the problem is too many parents are either misinformed or they are too busy to do anything about the state of public schools today. And even fewer seem concerned about the unbiblical sexual ethics being shoved down kids throats. Duke Pesta has a few solutions, but we cannot introduce them until we address a few of the major problems with the system today and why you should care. Please share today’s podcast and help raise awareness!

Education: Parental Rights, Palestinian Propaganda, and Progressive Politics

You may be surprised to hear some provocative and perhaps controversial statements on today’s program. One reason you may perceive them to be so is the fact that we rarely hear the truth – an honest evaluation of what’s really happening in the education system in America today. My parents were career educators, both having retired in public education prior to 1988, and to be sure, they would not recognize what education has become in the last thirty years or so.

The current state of disarray in American schools today is concerning, but most of us understand we did not get here overnight. If you feel angry or defensive to the point of saying this is not really happening, it may be time to get more informed or involved in the political process which includes your local school board. This is what it really comes down to: parents are responsible for raising their children, and for Christians, that means bringing them up in the knowledge of the truth, in the worldview of biblical Christianity and the morality it teaches.

We are blessed to have Dr. Duke Pesta of Freedom Project Academy back on the program today to discuss the most recent concerns and trends in education. Many Americans have little idea the extent of the leftist agenda including the anti-Christian, anti-Israel, progressive and social justice indoctrination being implemented in America today. Does this sound extreme? Listen to this podcast.
