“Many of them are giving up on the faith. Many are suiciding. Many are coming home pregnant, or they’re announcing ‘I’m not a boy anymore, I’m a girl!’ so it’s getting very serious indeed.”
The Victorian state election is well and truly over and some might say it’s now today’s fish and chip paper.
However, with the voters having given Labor a mandate to continue with its progressive agenda what will that mean for next four years?
And what does Victoria’s future look like from local resident and Christian commentator Bill Muehlenberg’s perspective?
“The short answer, it’s just going to get a whole lot worse!”
Bill’s a watchman, who for many years has been sounding the alarm about Victoria’s and Australia’s godless direction. Also ahead lies another critical event with the Federal election due in the first half of 2019.
Children to suffer?
“Certainly come May if Bill Shorten gets in, our children are going to be the big ones to suffer with Labor’s radical leftist ideology that includes the sexualisation of our children.”
Bill expects the transgenderisation of Australia’s children will be ramped up considerably if Labor wins power next year.
“No one will be exempt, and we’re already hearing about demands for Christian schools to not only have homosexual students but Labor and Greens introducing bills saying teachers staff and school principals will have to allow for homosexual teachers.”
Sadly that is what we’re now going to see.
A book recently released that reflects on the education system in America delivers the clearest of warnings about schools with its message to parents.
‘Get Out Now’
Its title says it plainly enough. ‘Get Out Now’.
Bill Muehlenberg, who’s read the book, said all over the Western world there’s no question that activists have been targeting education.
“They know full well if they can get access to our children, basically steal them away from their parents and parental values, they can really mold the way society goes.”
“Targeting children has always been part of the cultural left. Cultural Marxism sees it as one of its highest priorities,” Bill confirmed before giving the book ‘Get Out Now’ a very big tick.
“Its 300 pages are full of documentation, examples, illustrations, and stories that will shock you to death.”
“But I don’t think anybody will be able to say after reading that book it’s just fear-mongering or trying to get people easily upset. It’s simply stating what’s going on.”
Church immunity for children?
Bill acknowledged it’s no different to what’s going on in Australia and that a good 99 percent of what’s revealed in ‘Get Out Now’ applies to the situation here.
But surely parents shouldn’t get off scot free. After all are they not responsible for caring, nurturing and shaping the character of their children?
Bill said it’s part of the equation and as parents we’ve thought that dragging our kids along to church on Sunday should pretty much wrap it up.
We thought that would somehow keep them immune from 35 to 40 hours a week of secular education.
“It just doesn’t work that way,” Bill said.
In other words, one hour of Sunday school once a week is not going to cut it.
Good Christian parents
It’s no match up against a full week every week of schools pushing radical anti-God, radical sexualised agendas, hatred of country, hatred of the West, hatred of the free-enterprise system.
“When your kids are exposed to that day-in and day-out, parents are going to have to do a whole more than that,” Bill admitted, saying he’s aware of parents who are doing a good job to counter the Marxist socialist agenda.
But is it enough?
The studies show that even the majority of children raised in evangelical homes with good Christian parents is no antidote.
“By the time they enter university probably the majority will lose their faith,” Bill declared. “They were never properly grounded, they got all the secular humanist propaganda from primary through secondary and they get into Uni and they just get more of it, so many of the kids simply abandon their faith.”
They haven’t been taught the Christian worldview. They haven’t been taught to think critically. They haven’t been taught to think Biblically.
‘Don’t tell your parents!’
The schools are political hot-houses for leftist indoctrination and Bill doesn’t think the children under its sway, as happy as they may appear when they come home, are not necessarily talking about it.
“In fact many of these diabolical programs in the schools, the children are specifically told not to tell their parents what they’re learning.”
“It’s the radical pro-homosexual pro transgender sex courses like Safe Schools and the rest.”
Often the children are actually told, ‘Do not share this with your parents at home!
And there lies part of the problem. Most parents wouldn’t have a clue. So what can parents do?
“The book ‘Get Out Now’ says to stay and fight if you think you can. That’s one of the options.”
Children the classroom targets
“But it’s so entrenched, this radical secularist humanist agenda is so deeply into every part of the curriculum that you’re really going uphill,” Bill commented before turning to the real victims. The children.
It’s the poor children left in the classroom. They’re the ones who are being targeted.
“They’re often the ones who are not able to fight it.”
As a result, many parents are now home-schooling and that trend is now sky-rocketing.
Can it really be that bad?
“Independent, private, Christian and Catholic schools, those are other options. The book gives parents something to think about, gives them some options, gives them a new way of how we might deal with this if indeed the public school system is going down the tube.”
Can it really be that bad? Surely the state schools are not all that bad? The children are going to come out alright at the end aren’t they? Bill Muehlenberg doesn’t think so.
Many of them are not coming out alright.
“Many of them are giving up on the faith. Many are suiciding. Many are coming home pregnant, or they’re announcing ‘I’m not a boy anymore, I’m a girl so it’s getting very serious indeed and parents cannot take this for granted any longer.”

‘Get Out Now’
Should we stay or should we go? Millions of parents with children in public schools can’t believe they’re asking this question. But they are. And you should be asking it too. Almost overnight, America’s public schools have become morally toxic. And they are especially poisonous for the hearts and minds of children from religious families of every faith—ordinary families who value traditional morality and plain old common sense. Parents’ first duty is to their children—to their intellect, their character, their souls. The facts on the ground point to one conclusion: get out now.
