On the first half of the program I will be joined by Tim Lambert of THSC (www.thsc.org) Texas Home School Coalition. THSC fulfills three missions and has three entities to do this. Texas Home School Coalition, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization, is the state support organization. Its mission is to serve and inform the home school community and promote home education in Texas. THSC, Inc., also strives to:
Encourage and perpetuate the fire that ignited the original modern home school movement by continuing to defend, protect and promote home schooling and the requisite parental rights in Texas
Encourage home schoolers to persevere through difficult time by passing along a vision for the benefits of home education
Educate and support home school leadership at all levels in the state
Aggressively promote and market home schooling and parental rights in Texas to the general public
Assist widows, people who are disabled or needy, and the minority home school community
Texas Home School Coalition Association, (a 501(c)(4) organization), serves and protects Texas home school families by providing intervention and legal assistance for its members. The mission of the THSC Association:
Protect, defend and advance home schooling and parental rights in Texas
Further the cause of home schooling and parental rights by educating parents and students in the legislative process
Aggressively promote and market home schooling and parental rights to the general public in Texas
Texas Home School Coalition Political Action Committee (THSC PAC) is a statewide political action committee and works to:
Educate candidates and public officials about the benefits and validity of home schooling and parental rights through the political campaign process
Endorse pro-home schooling and pro-parental rights candidates for public office and encourage home school families to actively support the election of such candidates with their time, money and resources to ensure the continued freedom of Texas home schoolers
On todays program we will discuss the case of a family right here in Texas who unjustly had their children taken from them and they are still battling to get them back with the help of THSC. The Tutt family is a Christian homeschooling family and their story should send shivers down your spine. They also provide Foster care and handle special needs children. One of their foster boys is autistic and he wondered away from the home. He was found by a police officer as Mr Tutt was looking for him. The officer contacted CPS and an investigation ensued. The CPS report noted no danger to the children and the CPS representative recommended no cation be taken. However at the hearing the judge decided that homeschooling endangered the children and ordered them removed. On appeal another judge noted that the only cause given by Judge Graciela Olvera was her dislike of homeschooling. Tim joins me today to discuss this case and the continuing attacks against parental rights in Texas.
On the second half of the program David Watts who is running for Texas Land commissioner will join me to discuss his campaign. His vision for the future of Texas and what he intends to do about the EPA and the Federal Government encroaching on our private property rights.
Thank you for tuning in. Our state and our nation are in peril. Last night I had the opportunity to go to San Antonio and listen to Dan Patrick at a meet and greet. He shared his story of faith and how this has impacted him. He layed out his three primary issues, border security, making sure that CSCOPE is stopped, in which he expressed his frustration that the SBOE and the local School Board’s have ignored the efforts to shut down CSOPE and his plan to put an end to it. He also spoke about keeping Democrats out of committee chair positions since there is a Republican majority. He spoke of his faith and gave us his background, but mostly he spoke of the dangers we face here in Texas and what we need to do about that.
Texas is under attack and so is the moral fiber of America. Too many people have given up or are so frustrated they are frozen. The media daily and yes even hourly runs ads and programs designed to make us feel as though the perversion has already taken place. Truth has been exchanged for a lie and good is called evil while evil exults it self and basks in it’s own glory. But we must take heart in knowing the He who is in us is greater than He who is in the world.
In 2 Timothy 3 Paul writes, “1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come . 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded , lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away . 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning , and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 9 But they shall proceed no further : for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was . 10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, 11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured : but out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution . 13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse , deceiving , and being deceived . 14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of , knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.”
2 Corinthians 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
We are in some pretty perilous times right now. Let this verse encourage us that the weapons we wield are mighty and the knowledge of that should encourage us to be bold and to be courageous. Where this conflict will lead only God knows but we must not relinquish what has been given to us by God. If God is for us then who can stand against us. NO ONE!
