Prohibition Party: Why Crime Rates Have Gone Up

prohibition

Ever wonder why crime rates have gone up? One of the biggest reasons is the removal of the Bible from schools. While the Godless Democrats claim “Separation of Church and State” that is not what the founding fathers believed when it came to church and state. Here is Benjamin Rush one of our founding fathers on the Bible is schools…

Benjamin Rush, signer of the Declaration, member of Continental Congress, founder of 5 universities, in a “Defense of the Use of The Bible in Schools”, 1791; “Surely future generations wouldn’t try to take the Bible out of schools. In contemplating the political institutions of the United States, if we were to remove the Bible from schools, I lament that we could be wasting so much time and money in punishing crime and would be taking so little pains to prevent them.”

Only one Party follows the principles of our founding fathers… it is not the Godless Democrats or the week kneed Republicans… it is the Prohibition Party! Want to fight crime? Bring back the Bible and teach young people to love one another.

    How about bringing studies to the schools which teach about all major religions – lift the love ideas from various sources. This kind of learning teaches tolerance, then. The Bible is not the ONLY book of wisdom (and with reports of mayhem, b.t.w.!). Keep church and state separated in public schools, but have some interesting religion studies whieh make the kids think – and care for one another.

    I’m for “Quiet Time” every morning in public schools. It can be used for prayer, meditating, contemplating, or just learning to “be quiet”. We should not demand “prayer” — it is up to the individual, according to family upbringing. In this sense I could be for “prayer” / i.e., Quiet Time in schools. Maybe 10 lovely minutes. Every morning.

    But then, I’m for Yoga practice in the schools every morning, too: e.g., 1/2 hour.

    This and the quiet-time – would do wonders.

    Private religious schools can use their particular books, as, e.g., the Catholic schools do.

    Crime has been steadily going down for many years now. But I do look forward to our kids being taught about talking snakes & cutting off women’s hands in school.

    I wonder who is in charge of this Facebook page and wrote the statement. The opinion expressed in it doesn’t necessarily speak for all party members. I’m fairly certain Jim Hedges (who should’ve been the 2012 presidential nominee) would not agree with the statement.

    They seem to be bible thumpers as far as I can tell, this is not out of character at all.

    As far as crime rates I think they mean compared to 1950s or something.

    What in that interview contradicts this article? I scanned it and did not find anything that does on first read.

    Pertaining to the separation of church and state, Hedges lauds the Obama administration’s abandonment of the Mexico City policy:

    “Obama did end Bush’s ‘global gag rule,’ which attempted to prevent family planning agencies all over the world from even discussing abortion. And he did make a stab at improving medical care.”

    On focus, Hedges sees the party as “an exercise in living history. We’re like the weekend warriors who put on costumes and re-enact the Civil War. The South is not going to rise again. Neither is national prohibition going to come back (not, at least, in our lifetimes). But in both cases, we think there are important historical lessons which ought not be forgotten. And so, we soldier on against all odds.” He adds that the party should “stay on the message (of alcohol), [or] our living history lesson will be lost.”

    The article posted here makes no mention of alcohol at all.

    The Drys are a living breathing experiment in PLAS! The have been both progressive and ultra-conservative almost as the same time. No wonder they have lasted so long.
