About the EMBARKE Foundation
The truths we hold to be "self-evident" are only self-evident if God is acknowledged as our Creator. Without God, all objective truth is lost.
For the past seven years, The EMBARKE Foundation has worked to restore God In America's public education system, developed materials for parochial schools, and has implemented programming in America's prison system. God has placed us at ground zero in the spiritual battle to bring America back to Him. May God give us the courage to reclaim the Liberty He has won for us in Christ.
The mission of The EMBARKE Foundation is to create a culture of life that upholds and protects the dignity of the human person from the moment of conception to natural death, inspiring men, women, and children to grow in the virtues by which God has given us to live.
The Western culture is progressively turning away from God and embracing secular humanism. As a result, we are increasingly loosing our moral compass. In an effort to restore moral integrity in America, The EMBARKE Foundation is actively working to challenge humanist values in the public square. Contrast these following statements by secular humanists with the truths professed in the Declaration of Independence. We hope to restore these truths in communities throughout the United Sates.
“There is no God and there is no soul. Hence, there is no need for the
props of traditional religion. With dogma and creed excluded, then
immutable truth is also dead and buried. There is no room for fixed,
natural law or moral absolutes.” John Dewey (1859-1952), the Father
of American "Progressive" Public Education.
Most Americans believe in God and in His Natural Law. Why have we allowed secular humanist values to govern public education? Local communities have the fundamental right to take back their schools and to uphold the truths professed in the Declaration of Independence. We encourage every community throughout the US to assert their right to acknowledge God as our Creator and as the Source of our unalienble Rights.
“Education is thus a most powerful ally of humanism, and every
American school is a school of humanism. What can a theistic Sunday
School’s meeting for an hour once a week and teaching only a fraction of
the children do to stem the tide of the five-day program of humanistic
teaching?” Charles F. Potter, Humanism: A New Religion (1930)
“I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged
and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly
perceive their role as proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity.
These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most
rabid fundamentalist preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort,
utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in
whatever subject they teach, regardless of educational level – preschool,
day care or a large state university. The classroom must and will become
an arena of conflict between the old and the new – the rotting corpse of
Christianity...and the new faith of humanism.” John J. Dunphy, “A New
Religion for a New Age,” The Humanist, January/February 1983
“We must ask how we can kill the God of Christianity. We need only to
insure that our schools teach only secular knowledge. If we could achieve
this, God would indeed be shortly due for a funeral service.” G. Richard
Bozarth, “On Keeping God Alive,” American Atheist, November
If America's youth are to understand the nature of their "unalienable Rights" and what it means to be an American citizen, then we must acknowledge God in our public classrooms. The forces, however, which have effectively removed all mention of God from public education, will not yield easily. It is important to remember that when Americans unite in faith, we are unstoppable. With God's help, we can win this battle. Consider these words by Patrick Henry, "Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" Let us respond with courage to protect the liberty, which Christ won for us on the cross, with vigilance.
