Please go to Alabama Eagle Forum and read the call from Dr. Alveda King. All of us need to share the truth for God's children. Below is a letter from Pastor John Killian--please pray and make a copy and take it to your Pastor. Ask him if he would please allow Stand in the Gap to set up a forum or meeting or conference so that parents in their church will get to know how to defend their precious children. Please contact us by email here or Eagle Forum if you would like to set something up....for such a time as this knowledge must be shared. Please right click on the picture of Pastor John Killian's letter and hit "save as" to download. Be sure to attach the copy of Al Baptist Resolution and take to your church. Share the truth--it would be the unkind est act to let the children not have parents know what they are facing ...God is watching and He is our help. Videos in here will enlighten you to what is going on in Education and why many good teachers are leaving.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will reject you from serving as My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your sons.

Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good;And what does the Lord require of you But to do justice, to love kindness,And to walk humbly with your God?
Today the Senate did not do justice to the rights of parents...some were misled but parents tried to tell them and the unkindest act was done as parents warnings were seen as not fit to be considered in the final analysis. I guess they forgot that God gave Parents authority over children not US Chamber of Commerce nor the Department of Ed. Let's all humbly pray for them as God may yet send deliverance...

We are a group of Freedom-Loving, God-Fearing people who know Parental Authority must be included in children's education as it is the natural protector and insurer of what is best for each child. Remove it and all you will have will be those whose agenda is to use the children for their own purposes one of which we are seeing-is to change America. It is time to awaken. Please click on above locations and attend events. Help us grow a Tsunami of informed parents.
We are asking God for help for the children and it starts with us ...My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children-Hosea 4:6
Some of Our Speakers:
Linda Murphy is an educator who has been certified by the State Department of Education for 30 years. She is a magna cum laude graduate of Southwestern Oklahoma State University. She is trained to evaluate learning through the SOI –Structure of Intellect testing.
In 1994, Linda was appointed by Governor Keating to be his Secretary of Education, was also appointed by the Governor to the State Job Training Coordinating Council, School-to-Work Council and by the Commissioner of Labor to the position of Deputy Commissioner of Labor for Workforce Education and Training.
Linda speaks about Common Core and the Transformation of Education underway at the hands of “social engineers”. She is advocating for Local Control of Education and Common Sense Policies which will put a stop to the Big Government, Big Corporation and Education Progressive’s plans to take over our schools.
Linda's consultation experiences working with parents and special education students on Psychometric Testing Results and on academic/cognitive deficits/remediation needs for students from birth thru adult will give us an incredible insight into the world of testing and assessments. That along with her knowledge of the inner workings of education and legislation makes Linda's experience- a key tool in the Common Core Repeal fight.
Alice Linahan, is a politically-active Texas mom who helped form Voices Empower and Women On The Wall. Voices Empower locals how to harness the power of new media to help you get the conservative message out.
Her other group WomenOnTheWall™ (WOW) proclaims this: "WE are AMERICA’s Women. We’ve come too far. WE will not back down~ WE will not be silenced~ WE will not submit ~ to ANY law~ to ANY leader~ to ANY religion~ that does not adhere to our Constitution and uphold OUR God given rights, of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness." Alice Linahan believes that the women of America play a central role in the protection and security of our sovereign nation. Alice hopes to educate and motivate women across America to take action for national security policies. Through professional leadership and a targeted focus, Alice Linahan's WOW is on track to redefine the meaning of “boots on the ground.” Specifically, WOW’s implementation of a communication team strategy offers women the tools to ENGAGE, to change hearts and minds, and to expand their own capabilities past a CLICK “LIKE” social media mentality. Since 9/11 women have been vigilantly standing watch, calling attention to the dangers facing our children and our homeland and Alice is one of the voices sounding the alarm. She unfortunately saw that Common Core was alive and well in Texas under CSCOPE and will share insights she's learned on "how" to uproot the enemy determined to take away our freedoms through the minds of the children--our future voters and leaders.
