Francis Scheffer said: "Someday we will wake up and find that the America we once knew was gone. That day is here. We have crossed an invisible line and there are no signs that we are capable of turning back. Being swept along a powerful cultural current that just might put us over the brink.

In June, 1992, the Supreme Court based on a complaint from one student ruled five to four that prayer at graduation ceremonies were unconstitutional.
In Virginia a school principal requested that a handicapped girl stop bringing her bible on a school bus. In Philadelphia, school children were asked to write a paper on the subject power.
