Albert S. Herlong, Jr. Quote

“[Communist Goals for America:]
- Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
- Control schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda.
- Soften curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put party line in textbooks. Control student newspapers.
- Infiltrate churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion (i.e. “social justice,” “liberation theology”).
- Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
- Discredit American culture.
- Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and divorce.
- Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.

5 stars for accuracy. Albert S. Herlong, Jr. switched to the Republican party after his retirement. It is amazing how quick the change has taken place. In an effort to restore our Constitutional Republic, the battle is laid bare and raw before the public's eyes. The siege must be broken, through any means necessary. WWG1WGA to MAGA to KAG

I'm not sure how to rate this. As Ronw13 said, 5 stars for accuracy OR, should it get a thumb's down for what the staggering application has done to a once free land.

Durham, Birmingham, AL

We need a separation of school and state.

Felipe, São Paulo

He seems more worried about protecting his gospel...

56 years later, speaks for itself, right on.  This is essentially the Democrat/RINO playbook.  Look at schools and universities today, the transgender movement, the media, SJWs and Antifa, labor unions, AMA, ABA, and of course the banking cartels  all authoritarians laying claim to others.  Socialism is a rigged casino, and it is a career to wealth and power.  The leftist elites are living the socialist dream, completely unaware that they are the new slave-holders and religionists to the god of Power.

Communism is a total heterogeneous project, in essence to cure the children of the make believe worthlessness mindset, and make total use of all of useful resources.
