and…

The Obama Administration… [is] turning to ‘executive authority’ to advance their policy priorities in local schools… the proposed waivers will only be granted to states on a conditional basis to those states that agree to implement the Department of Education’s chosen ‘reforms.’

“A federal investigation [by the Obama Administration’s Department of Education] has begun in an Alabama school district after a Junior ROTC instructor allegedly expressed his belief that the Bible does not support the homosexual lifestyle during class.”

http://www.christianpost.com/news/doe-investigating-school-over-bible-and-homosexuality-comments-85891/print.html

[ASND would like to point out that the instructor only discussed what he believed the Bible taught, not what Barack Obama’s ROTC teaches.]

[And yes, all ROTC units ultimately report to the President of the United States, just like all other military units do.]
