I recently distributed a copy of “The Bible is the Higher Law in America” to each of the Collier County School Board members to expose the unconstitutional beliefs of some of the board members.
A copy of my book has been provided to Superintendent Kamela Patton, Attorney Jon Fishbane, and Collier County School Board Members: Kelly Lichter, Stephanie Lucarelli, Erika Donalds, Erick Carter, and Roy Terry. The letter below accompanied my book to identify the unconstitutional beliefs and the board members who hold them.
Dear Collier County School Board member,
I have presented you with a copy of my book “The Bible is the Higher Law in America” to inform you of the truth with respect to the U.S. Constitution. Some members of this school board hold unconstitutional beliefs.
Ms. Lucarelli took an oath to “support the Constitution of the United States” while maintaining a belief that the phrase “separation of church and state” is part of the U.S. Constitution – it is not. The truth, what Thomas Jefferson and our founders wanted was just the opposite of what the courts and secularists have Ms. Lucarelli and others believe today. The phrase “separation of church and state” appears no where in the U.S. Constitution. (Please read chapter 7).
Mr. Carter also took an oath to “support the Constitution of the United States” while publicly proclaiming the difference between a democracy and a republic is “like splitting hairs.” Mr. Carter fails to realize there is a big difference between the two (Please read chapter 4). Furthermore, no where in the U.S. Constitution, or any of our founding documents for that matter, is America’s form of government referred to as a democracy. Actually, Article IV, Section 4, of the U.S. Constitution guarantees our republican form of government –“The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government.”
We still live in a free country and Ms. Lucarelli and Mr. Carter are allowed to have their own beliefs, whether true or not, but then they are unqualified to hold the position of a Collier County School Board member. In no way should they have been involved in the text book selection for the children of Collier County. In some cases, the text books selected by board members for the Collier County Schools are unconstitutional and damaging to the integrity of our nation.
