Read~ The GIst of Freedom is Still Faith, On -line Free Google Books! Tour with alumni, John Medley of Bordentown, New Jersey's, African American school affectionately known as "The Tuskegee of the North". Founded in 1886 by Rev. Rice. Modeled after Booker T. Washington, It was NJ's first Vocational Technical Institute. The school was self sustaining. Most of the 40 buildings were built on the 400 acre campus by the students. The campus included farms, technical labs and industrial shops. Bordentown's excellent academic reputation attracted supporters and dignitaries such as Albert Einstein. Unfortunately it was closed in 1955 due to it's non-compliance of the Brown vs. Board of Education segregation decision. It is currently being used as a female juvenile correctional facility. The School is in disrepair to the extent that it is on New Jersey's Ten Most endangered historical sites. It's an excellent example of how "People of faith", from various religions worked together to overcome the backward racist principalities that restricted all mankind. This friendship helped the men of faith win the Civil War. The resiliency they demonstrated, from the consequences of the War and it's hateful aftermath, is shown in the establishment of these institutions as well as in their ability to form interracial kinships. Considering these feats were accomplished by ex-slaves in an extraordinary short time, only a few decades after they gained their freedom. The time is long overdue for These Co-Racial American institutions which are directly connected to Faiths and major historical events, like the divine Underground Railroad and Lincoln's two Proclamations, (Thanksgiving and Emancipation) be given their recognition. This documentary is a landmark American masterpiece film. A Hollywood classic! Mr. Medley is truly a reflection of his generation, one of civil rights' living voices. Find out more about collaborations of the faithful: read The Gist of Freedom is Still Faith. *******www.gistoffreedom****

U.S. schools were the envy of the world not so long ago but now that reputation is slipping badly. The root cause for this decline in education is fairly straightfoward and simple. The reason is because we have pretty much shut out THE TEACHER OF ALL WISDOM (God) from the classroom. How did the removal of voluntary prayer from the schools of the United States affect our nation as a whole? That question has been answered in detail by a research company in Texas which has gathered and tabulated statistics from hundreds of sources relating to the rates of moral decline in America. Specialty Research Associates, under the direction of David Barton, has released a report entitled America: To Pray or Not to Pray which uses over 100 pages of graphs and statistical analysis to prove that crime, venereal disease, premarital se^x, illiteracy, suicide, drug use, public corruption, and other social ills began a dramatic increase after the Engel vs. Vitale Supreme Court decision was made in 1962 which banned school prayer. Prayer in schools prior to 1962 was utilized in school districts all over the U.S. in many varieties. Some teachers used extemporaneous prayers, simply expressing their thoughts and desires; others implemented structured prayers, such as the Lord's Prayer or the 23rd Psalm, or others approved by local school boards. New York students prayed each day: 'Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence on Thee and beg Thy blessing over us, our parents, our teachers, and our nation.' It was this simple prayer which came under fire and went to the Supreme Court for the landmark decision. Says David Barton, 'It is impossible to know how many of the 39 million children were involved in daily verbal prayers, but most accounts indicate that a clear majority of the students voluntarily participated in daily school prayer. Is it possible that the prayers that were being offered by these children and their teachers across the nation actually had any measurable, tangible effect?' It was this question that led Barton to uncover the statistical proof that the removal of prayer did indeed take its toll on America. Below are just a few of the charts featured in Barton's report, with a brief explanation of each: Figure 1: The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) is an academic test that measures the developed verbal and math reasoning of a student exiting from high school or some similar type of learning facility. The results of these tests are commonly used by colleges and universities to indicate the strength of a student's academic preparation and his potential for success on the college level. Figure 1 shows how drastically the actual knowledge of high school students began to drop at an accelerating rate after 1962. Barton notes in his report that the upturn in SAT scores since 1981 is due to the increase in private Christian educational facilities which began to flourish at that time. Statistics have proven that students from private Christian schools showed higher academic achievement and higher test scores. Figure 2: This graph shows the increase in s^exual activity in unmarried teen-age girls after the 1962 Supreme Court decision. It is evident from the figures provided that in the years previous to the removal of prayer the rates remained stable and relatively unchanged. In the post- prayer years the numbers immediately began to soar. The sudden increase on the graph appears as if a great restraining force had suddenly been removed. Figure 3: Unwed women 15-19 years of age showed a phenomenal increase in the rate of pregnancies after the School Prayer decision. Note that the figure jumps drastically after the Supreme Court's Roe vs. Wade decision which made abortion legal in the U.S. The United States now has the highest incidence of teen-age motherhood in any Western country. Figure 4: For the 15-19 and 20-24 age group, the rates of youth suicide remained relatively unchanged during the years from 1946 to the School Prayer decision in 1962. But in the years since, suicides among the same group have increased 253 percent, or an average of 10.5 percent per year. Figure 5: Stability in the family has also been affected since the 1962 decision. Divorce, single parent families, couples living together but not married, and adultery are areas of family breakdown which have experienced radical growth in recent years. In the graph above, the increase in single parent families (households with only a mother and children) are detailed. Note the dotted line at the bottom, which shows the rate of growth prior to the 1962 decision. Figure 6: Crime, productivity, and national morality had been on a fairly stable level prior to the 1962 decision, but that is no longer the case. It is obvious that such a quantity of students praying for their nation had a very positive effect on the course that this nation had taken. The rate of violent crime, as shown above, has risen over 330 percent. If you would like a copy of America: To Pray or Not to Pray?, send $7.95 to Specialty Research Associates, P.O.
