Outstanding Podcast—Ep. 24: The Importance of Knowing America’s Foundational Values

Although America is often referred to as the melting pot, it has become alarmingly apparent that many are forgetting the foundations that this great country was built upon: biblical Christian principles. Host Joseph Backholm is joined by Texas State Representative Matt Schaefer, and Texas attorney Sam Webb. Recently, Schaefer announced his sponsorship of a bill in Texas requiring all classrooms to display a copy of the Ten Commandments.

Both Schaefer and Webb emphasize the influence public schools have on transmitting values and how important it is that they transmit foundational American values.

Children are our future and it is important that they know the history which has allowed this country to thrive.

Is it good for schools to require something like a Ten Commandments display? Join us for the discussion.
