“How many parents … send their children to school so central planners can mold them into functionally illiterate cogs in a centrally planned machine, having just enough knowledge to do their preassigned task? How will such cogs be able to think critically, much less sustain liberty and the American experiment? The short answer is that they will not – and that is the point.” – The Authors

Utopian dictators like Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot and Mao are criminals – genocidal psychopaths who have killed more human beings in the last hundred years than any other ideologues in history. They don't limit their murder to individuals, but to entire nations.

In the United States another form of utopians, the "progressives," have tried to destroy traditional America by strategically dumbing down her people. America's future is being crippled on purpose in order to fundamentally transform the nation, its values and its system of government. Laid out a century ago by progressive luminary John Dewey, the fruits of his schemes are plain to see today. Dewey got rid of the traditional intensive phonics method of instruction and imposed a "look-say," "sight" or "whole-word" method that forces children to read English as if it were Chinese. The method is widely used in today's public schools, which is a major reason there are so many failing public schools that cannot teach children the basics. This can only be considered a blatant form of child abuse.

American author and veteran educator Samuel Blumenfeld and journalist Alex Newman have taken on the public education establishment as never before and exposed it for the de facto criminal enterprise it is.

"Crimes of the Educators" reveals how the architects of America's public school disaster implemented a plan to socialize the United States by knowingly and willingly dumbing down the population, a mission now closer to success than ever as the Obama administration works relentlessly to nationalize K-12 schooling with Common Core.

The whole-word method of teaching children to read – introduced by John Dewey and colleagues in the early 20th century and which permeates Common Core – is a significant cause of dyslexia among students. Public education's war against religion, the "great American math disaster," promotion of death education and the government's plan to lower standards for all so that "no one is left behind" are destroying the logic, reasoning and overall educational prowess of America's next generation.

According to the Program for International Student Assessment, which collects test results from 65 countries for its rankings:

In reading, students in 19 other locales scored higher than U.S. students
In science, 22 education systems scored above the U.S.
In mathematics, 29 nations and other jurisdictions outperformed the United States
Journalist Henry Mencken said it best in 1924 when he wrote that the aim of public education is "to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality."

It is time to hold the Department of Education accountable for the crimes of the educators.

Part 2: Parents Be Warned!
A Tool Kit To Understand The Radical Agenda Implemented By President Obama
As a warning to parents and citizens, with one month into the school year, Be Aware and BeWare of the psychological techniques being marketed in many forms in your school. This behavioral/affective domain agenda is not new. Parents, act now!
 Be sure to read carefully all Conduct or Parent Compacts at your school.
 Do not sign your rights away by signing onto a Parent Engagement Letter that would allow your rights to be forfeited to the school.
 Look into the “prevention” classes including suicide, social, emotional, and behavioral development, or character development.
 Don't give up your parent's rights as sole arbiter of your child.
 Be sure to use the Parent Opt Out Letter included in this article.
 Be vigilant!
Schools say they want to be your partner. The definition of partnership means equal responsibility and equal ownership. Remember, that “assessment” is a term used to evaluate the worth of property. “Assessment” is now a term used to evaluate your child's worth to the economy. Your child is considered “Human Capital” in the global economy.
In response to several articles appearing recently, here are my comments:
Social, Emotional, Behavioral Standards Are NOT a FAD. THESE STANDARDS HAVE BEEN LEGISLATED IN ESSA, the recently passed Every Student Succeeds Act. These federal standards have been developed years ago. Teacher training, called fidelity, have blanketed your school under the ESEA FLEXIBILITY WAIVERS since 2012. The key to fidelity is that teachers must perform the Common Core INTERVENTIONS EXACTLY AS THEY WERE RESEARCHED. To protect your child, you parents must understand the system of behavioral conditioning being performed in the classroom. Beware of the workings of this system.
It was announced last month that a new round of experimental, psychological research will be promoted in 8 states. Parents should be writing their Opt Out letters now. (See below for a sample Opt Out letter. Parents can use this by putting their own state name into the areas where I have placed the Pennsylvania PIMS data system.) Check out these links of the ongoing push for psychological techniques being promoted in our schools: [Link 1] and [Link 2]
There are many problems with this INVASIVE and ILLEGAL agenda. First, creating standards and testing a child’s affective (emotion, feeling) domain is not new. There is a long history behind this. The state of Pennsylvania and the NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress test) are masters at testing attitudes, values, beliefs, and dispositions. Pennsylvania violated federal law for using psychological measurements on children and had to remove their state assessment, the EQA, because it violated federal law, the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment. I was the parent who filed that complaint. Psychological, experimental research on children without informed written parental consent is illegal. CASEL (Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning) is setting themselves up for multiple lawsuits, as well as the schools, for cooperating with these experimental programs. CASEL is lying about the research. They want acceptance and parent engagement to go along with the experimentation.Parents, You Can Say No! Stand up for your parents' rights!
Parents and American citizens, ask the following questions:
1. Who will decide what the proficiency level will be in the personality traits of your children? How do they score a child’s attitudes, values, beliefs, and dispositions? What is the state-determined “correct” attitude, value, belief or disposition for your child? Proficiency levels for personal qualities were determined in the 1992 SCANS (Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills) report funded by the Department of Labor for the future workforce. Parents, ask the hard questions! How do you put a proficiency level on personalities? How does the government score them? How does the government remediate values? THINK!
2. What type of experimental programs will be incorporated into the classrooms to require your child pass the test for any particular “government-approved” attitude? What type of psychological interventions will be infused into your child’s curriculum? Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) LOOPHOLES are allowing 3rd party contractors to get data for free to develop curriculum, software, and phone apps toward implementing behavior change. Obama's Executive Order 12866 unlocked personally identifiable information by re-writing FERPA REGULATIONS, thereby stripping the privacy of your children and families. Data Mining of your children is rampant!
3. Who receives the personal data on your children when data is entered into the state longitudinal data system that ALLOWS data to be shared with outside contractors?
Do children have a Constitutional 1st and 4th Amendment protection to be left alone in their conscience? Pennsylvania Moratorium answered this question below. Privacy violations are rampant!
4. Who is liable for damage incurred by staff and social workers, etc., for damage when something goes wrong dealing with your child’s sensitive psychological areas? Is it the curriculum developer? Teacher? School district? State? Or our federal government that legislated these non-academic standards?
Parents, become informed! Study the examples of behavioral conditioning.
Your child is a target!
Forcing the Same Psychological Standards On Every School. Obama's Plan to Individualize Education in a personalized, diagnostic plan means every child would be directed to Common Core, and only Common Core. The dumbed down tactics of “functional” literacy (in reality, illiteracy) was a plan brought forward by the Department of Labor in its massive 1992 SCANS report, which planned on identifying “personal qualities” (mental health) needed for controlling human capital for the dystopian global workforce. (Source: Secretaries Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills, DOL, 1992)
Most people believe children come to school with a blank slate. Not true. Children are taught pre-conceived notions of values and beliefs by their parents. But Sue Berryman of the SCANS Working Group said it is the State’s job to “replace what is already on the slate.” This idea of a “fluid” mindset helps you to understand the techniques needed to change your child's “fixed” traditional attitudes, values, beliefs, and dispositions.
The Flex Waivers identified a child’s personal qualities, the social, emotional, behavioral non-academic standards that became additions into the Common Core standards. Psychological terms were added that enhanced teaching the spiritual part of the whole child theory. SEL, social and emotion learning, sometimes called “growth mindsets,” would set the goals of changing moral absolutes and American patriotic ideals.
Molding a child’s behavior would be monitored and controlled by a reward and punishment system of tokens, check in or check out, which is the total BF Skinner operant conditioning, stimulus-response model. The prescribed outcome to “Conduct, or behave and listen to the teacher at ALL times” would thereby pressure young children to conform to the behavioral conditioning or they would be punished – constantly.
Behavioral data will be collected daily. Surveillance will be used to monitor and observe individual children. The data is entered into state longitudinal data systems. Daycare centers are monitoring babies at birth, collecting social, emotional, and behavioral data also. Data is collected in Kindergarten called Kindergarten Entry Inventory. (Source)
Teachers use CHILD FIND, a Special Education process to manufacture children into the Common Core mold. Teachers are trained to use behavior modification techniques on normal children. These techniques were first developed to help control mentally handicapped children, specifically autistic children who have a severe clinical problem of controlling their behavior and/or aggressive behavior. In this way, any behavior can be deemed an emotional disability because there is no “normal” in the definitions. The difference in this technique is that parents can not opt out of the routine “observational” subjective monitoring of their children. Normal children so monitored are thus being targeted as disabled. Turning around in their seat, staring out the window, or flipping pages in their little book, could dock your child from rewards.
Please read through this phone app to understand how normal child behavior is a target for behavioral conditioning interventions: (Source) This BOSS Phone App (Behavioral Observation of Students in Schools) would allow teachers to monitor behavior and arbitrarily identify your child as “At-Risk.” Even a passive action, such as staring out the window for more than 3 seconds, is a behavior that cannot be tolerated. Schools thus become prisons where an independent child is constantly punished for infractions according to the “behavior police.”
Study the alarming two graphics below. Note how normal childhood behavior has been redefined to abnormal!
Beware! Shy children are also a target for interventions. Or, on the other hand, your child might be cited as having aggressive behavior if they push someone in line at the water fountain after recess. (What normal child hasn’t bumped another child at the water fountain?!) Something as minor as having a “bad hair” day could warrant interventions. Breaking up with your boyfriend or girlfriend could identify your child with a psycho-social stressor. These are all disabilities waiting for their teacher to log into the State and Federal data warehouse. More serious problems like a divorce, or death in the family, etc., could bring on an onslaught of intrusive interventions.
Pennsylvania Interpersonal Skills 2012 non-academic standards, were removed by former Gov. Corbett in 2014 after parental protest. But now, as of December 2015, the recently passed ESSA federal legislation has codified the non-academic social, emotional, and behavioral standards.
Parents in Pennsylvania demanded a moratorium on these value-laden standards in October 2014. This CASEL marketing and re-branding agenda is not “new and improved.” It is a farce. Their agenda is duplicating itself to quickly cover the country in psych interventions by spreading them through each state.
This marketing agenda must stop! Just because it sounds good, doesn't mean it is legal or ethical. This unethical marking of a child's mental health will have deleterious effects on the future of your child – including gun ownership, future employment, or entrance into college. Parents, act now!
 Demand a Congressional Investigation!
 Rescind Obama's EO 12866.
 Stop data flow to the Feds through your state longitudinal data system.
 Shut down the National Center of Education Statistics, NCES and Institute for Educational Sciences, IES – the real culprits.
A parent revolt should shut this down, IMMEDIATELY!

On October 3, President Obama schmoozed with actor Leonardo DiCaprio on the South Lawn of the White House, telling DiCaprio: “We’re really in a race against time,” to prevent what he perceives as the worst affects of climate change.
Obama’s remarks came in the midst of a day-long fair and musical event that led up to the U.S. premiere of Before the Flood, a National Geographic documentary on climate change that DiCaprio starred in and produced with the admitted goal of influencing public opinion on the issue of climate change.
The movie premiere was preceded by an hour-long panel discussion, where DiCaprio introduced both the president and Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University. During the introductions, DiCaprio revealed his agenda by stating that he and director Fisher Stevens wanted their film “to be released before this upcoming election because after firsthand experiencing the devastating impacts of climate change worldwide, we, like many of you here today, realize that urgent action must be taken.”
“This moment is more important than ever. We must empower leaders who not only believe in climate change but are willing to do something about it,” DiCaprio was quoted as saying by the Washington Post. “The scientific consensus is in, and the argument is now over. If you do not believe in climate change, you do not believe in facts, or in science, or empirical truths, and therefore, in my humble opinion, should not be allowed to hold public office.”
However, DiCaprio’s assertion that “the scientific consensus is in, and the argument is now over” contradicts the views of many respected environmental scientists who have stated that climate change (whether warming or cooling) is a natural cyclical occurrence and is not attributable to anthropogenic (human) causes. 
The New American has published numerous articles citing statements from scientists who maintain that even natural global warming has reversed itself during recent years and what warming has occurred is reflective of the Earth’s natural climatic cycles. While space permits only a brief sampling of such articles, one of the most comprehensive was “Meet the Climate Realists,” published last January, which compiled “a short sampling of the tens of thousands of rational and reputable scientists who maintain an unbiased skepticism toward AGW [anthropogenic global warming], even at the risk of acquiring the career-jeopardizing slur of ‘denier.’”
Among the scientists profiled in that article were:
• Richard Lindzen, Ph.D, emeritus professor of meteorology at MIT, and a leading expert on climate dynamics and global heat transport. Lindzen has expressed his opinion of human-caused catastrophic global warming quite plainly: “It’s just nonsense,” he stated at a November climate summit hosted by the Texas Public Policy Foundation. “Demonization of CO2 is irrational at best, and even modest warming is mostly beneficial.”
• Patrick Moore, Ph.D, who co-founded Greenpeace in 1971, and spent the next 15 years as a director of Greenpeace International, earning a worldwide reputation as an environmental leader. However, Moore parted ways with Greenpeace over a scandal that ensued when the organization convinced some Latin American countries to remove chlorine” from their drinking water, resulting in a cholera epidemic in 1991. At a recent Texas Public Policy Foundation climate summit, Moore declared, “Let’s celebrate CO2!” He called it “the foundation of life on earth” and pointed out that “the deserts are greening from rising CO2.”
• Art Robinson, Ph.D, the co-founder of the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine and editor of the monthly newsletter Access to Energy. He is a member of the Global Warming Petition Project, which produced a document signed by 31,000 U.S. scientists. The document states, in part:
There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.
A review of the “related articles” listed below will provide many more examples of respected scientists disagreeing with the “climate change” establishment, which predicts disastrous global warming and rising seas if the world’s industrial operations continue to emit “greenhouse gasses.”

Shelbyville, Tennessee: Muslim shoots up three churches, says “Read the Qur’an”

SEE: below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:

The link to Buchanan’s Facebook page in the report below has already gone dead. In any case, the screenshot makes Buchanan’s mindset clear: “Read the Qur’an because it is the true word of God…”
A Muslim shoots up three churches and nothing is said about his motive or his Islamic identity. Would the same courtesy be shown a Christian who shot up three mosques? Why the cover up? Who is responsible for it?
“Could the Suspect arrested in a Shelbyville, Tennessee Shooting Spree be a Jihadi?,” by Jerry Gordon, New English Review, October 6, 2016 (thanks to Robert):
…Shelbyville has a new problem; a shooting spree by a suspect, Wendell Buchanan, apprehended by local whose social media discloses his possible Muslim conversion.  The issue is why local law enforcement hasn’t reached out for assistance of the Joint Terrorism Task Force and the FBI to investigate this as a possible terrorist event.   This report would appear to suggest that Buchanan was on a self motivated jihad mission against hated kuffar religious institutions in the community:
September 27 – October 02, 2016: Shelbyville, TN: Three churches were shot up in the Shelbyville, TN area starting on the night of Sep 27, 2016. The Horse Mountain Church of Christ was shot 16 more times the night of Sep 29. The Philippi United Methodist Church along with another church was also struck by 7.62 x 39 rounds on the 29th. (7.62 x 39 rounds are consistent with an AK47 or a SKS rifle) The Bedford County Agriculture Center was also attacked with gunfire on the 29th, shattering the front glass. There were also reports of utility boxes being shot during this time.
On October 02, 2016, the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of Wendell Buchanan, age 30 for the shootings. A check of Wendell Tobias Buchanan’s Facebook page shows that he has been quoting the Quran and demonstrates he is a very vocal follower of Islam. 
An October 4, 2016 Shelbyville Times Gazette report on the apprehension of Buchanan noted the seriousness of the charges, but without identifying the ideology behind it…



Keys to the Cyber Kingdom: Who Are the ICANN Keyholders?
SEE: below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:

Last Saturday the Internet entered a new epoch. On October 1, the Obama administration (thanks to culpable inaction by the Republican-controlled Congress) handed over the keys to the cyber kingdom to ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), an unaccountable, international, “multi-stakeholder” organization.
For The New American and the thousands of other independent, alternative media sites, blogs, and organization websites providing information outside the control of the globalist “mainstream” thought cartel, there is obvious concern about how this transition will impact our continued operation. And with so much of the world’s economy and commerce — as well as military, government services, telecommunications, emergency services, medicine, education, and infrastructure — critically tied to, and dependent on, the Internet, concerns about national security, privacy, stability, and censorship under the new ICANN regime are not trifling matters either.
As we reported recently, ICANN has admitted that its cyber security has been breached hundreds of times by outside hackers. However, it’s not only ICANN’s failure to protect against external threats that should be of concern. What about internal threats from those inside ICANN who are entrusted, literally, with the keys to the kingdom? Who are the key holders, and who are the “master key holders”? Very little is known about these mysterious individuals and the awesome power they wield.
One of the few public reports about the Internet security keys and key holders appeared in a 2014 article by James Ball in the left-wing U.K. newspaper The Guardian. Ball was allowed to attend the high-security ceremony of the key holders in California. “In a nondescript industrial estate in El Segundo, a boxy suburb in south-west Los Angeles just a mile or two from LAX international airport, 20 people wait in a windowless canteen for a ceremony to begin,” Ball wrote. “There is a strange mix of accents — predominantly American, but smatterings of Swedish, Russian, Spanish and Portuguese can be heard around the room, as men and women (but mostly men) chat over pepperoni pizza and 75-cent vending machine soda.” 
“It might be a fairly typical office scene, were it not for the extraordinary security procedures that everyone in this room has had to complete just to get here, the sort of measures normally reserved for nuclear launch codes or presidential visits,” The Guardian reporter noted. “The reason we are all here sounds like the stuff of science fiction, or the plot of a new Tom Cruise franchise: the ceremony we are about to witness sees the coming together of a group of people, from all over the world, who each hold a key to the internet. Together, their keys create a master key, which in turn controls one of the central security measures at the core of the web.” He describes an elaborate security regimen that sounds like something from a Mission Impossible or Jason Bourne movie: retinal eye scans, biometric hand prints, security cages, lock down rooms, alarms, key cards, safe combinations. (A video of Ball’s experience at the ICANN ceremony can be viewed here.)
“What these men and women control is the system at the heart of the web: the domain name system, or DNS,” Ball reports. “The master key is part of a new global effort to make the whole domain name system secure and the internet safer: every time the key holders meet, they are verifying that each entry in these online ‘phone books’ is authentic.”
The Guardian report continued: 
The east and west coast ceremonies each have seven key holders, with a further seven people around the world who could access a last-resort measure to reconstruct the system if something calamitous were to happen. Each of the 14 primary key holders owns a traditional metal key to a safety deposit box, which in turn contains a smart card, which in turn activates a machine that creates a new master key. The backup key holders have something a bit different: smartcards that contain a fragment of code needed to build a replacement key-generating machine. 
KGB Keyholders
One of the keyholders is “Russian security expert” Dmitry Burkov, who “has flown in from Moscow for the ceremony.” Burkov goes back to the days of the Brezhnev era of the Soviet Union and worked in the Soviet Academy of Sciences under Soviet dictator (and KGB boss) Yuri Andropov. It was pretty much a certainty back then that scientists who rose through the ranks in the Soviet Academy were not only Communist Party members, but also KGB-controlled assets. Comrade Burkov’s continued rise under Vladimir Putin’s KGB-FSB regime points toward the very strong likelihood that he is an asset of the FSB (the rebranded KGB), which has taken a very strong interest, of course, in cyber espionage and control of the Internet. We have reported, for instance on the outsized and alarming impact that KGB/FSB asset Yevgeny Kaspersky is having on computer security, with thousands of western banks, corporations, institutions, and government agencies — and millions of consumers worldwide — using Kaspersky software and consulting services. 
"The key issue with internet governance is always trust," Burkov told The Guardian reporter. "No matter what the forum, it always comes down to trust." Indeed, but what has he done to earn the trust that supposedly accompanies selection as an ICANN key holder? For that matter, how trustworthy are any of the 21 key holders, and how were they selected? If ICANN’s story is to believed, they simply put out a “wanted” ad on the World Wide Web and asked if anyone was interested in having this cool, awesome responsibility. This is how The Guardian describes what occurred: “The initial selection process was surprisingly low-key: there was an advertisement on Icann's site, which generated just 40 applications for 21 positions.” Hmmm. 7.4 billion people on the planet and only 40 responded to this offer? Sounds like either we’re facing a global glut of motivationally challenged slackers, or ICANN is dishing out an unbelievable narrative. Surely, considering only the millions of professional techies and the tens of millions of computer nerds trolling on the Internet 24/7 in their moms' basements, at least a few thousand would have responded to ICANN’s wild-beyond-imagination invitation. But only 40 applied? And Dmitry Burkov was one of the lucky 21 chosen as a keeper of the keys. That doesn’t seem to pass the most basic smell test.
And Burkov is far from the only security concern. You see, according to The Guardian’s account, it doesn’t take all 21, or even 14, or even 7 key holders to start the security ceremony. Apparently, only a minimum of three key holders is required to form a master key. That means incredibly high stakes are resting on a very few vulnerable, unvetted, and unprotected individuals. Even if they happen to be totally clean and innocent when selected, they are obviously prime targets for bribery, extortion, seduction, co-optation, kidnapping, and murder by governments, corporations, terrorists, and organized crime. 
These security issues were among the many serious matters not adequately publicly aired in the Obama administration’s mad rush to sever the United States government’s stewardship over vital infrastructure and operations of the Internet. Moreover, as we have pointed out, the Obama administration is clearly in violation of Article IV, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution,which provides that Congress has the exclusive power “to dispose of and make all needful rules and regulations respecting the territory or other property belonging to the United States.” This paramount constitutional issue was spelled out, along with other concerns, in a letter from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) to Attorney General Loretta Lynch on September 21.
In other words, President Obama had no more authority to transfer the keys to the Internet to ICANN and its undisclosed key holders than he does to transfer your car keys to your neighbor’s teenage son and his unknown buddies. Contrary to the claims of those who describe the Obama-ICANN transfer as an irreversible done deal, the battle for control of the Internet is far from over. Your U.S. senators and representatives and House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell must be put on notice that this fraudulent transfer is unconstitutional and unacceptable. It can be, and must be, reversed when Congress returns from its ill-advised and undeserved recess.

“And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean” (Leviticus 10:10). God’s Word commands separation between the holy and the unholy, yet that is exactly what is not found in contemporary Christianity. It is a dangerous, heretical mixing of sacred and secular, and any Bible-believing church or home that messes with contemporary Christian music in any fashion is most foolish. Consider The Passion, a two-hour FOX television special scheduled to air on October 20. It purports to “tell the story of the last hours of Jesus Christ’s life on earth through passages from the Bible and a variety of well-known pop songs” (“The Passion: New Orleans Soundtrack Set for Release,” One of the actors is Michael W. Smith, a prominent CCM artist. Jesus Christ is played by Jencarlos Canela, a sensual rocker, dancer, and actor who announced in 2011 that he and his girlfriend, Gaby Espino, were expecting a baby out of wedlock. Canela rose to fame for his role in the morally filthy soap opera Más Sabe el Diablo (The Devil Knows More), which was recorded in 2009-2010. Canela played the part of Angel, though he is known as El Diablo (the devil), who supposedly has a good heart even though he is a foul-mouthed thief, fornicator, etc. The violent series “features lovers embroiled in intrigue, betrayal, vengeance and unbridled passion.” In The Passion, Mary, the mother of Jesus, is played by the thrice-divorced Trisha Yearwood. The soundtrack to The Passion is by Adam Anders and Peer Astrom, who have previously produced the Backstreet Boys and the incredibly filthy, anti-Christ singer Madonna. Songs for The Passion include hits by exceedingly unholy musicians. Consider Katy Perry, whose “Dark Horse” promotes ancient Egyptian occultism and idolatry, complete with serpents, demonic animals, spells, the god Horus, and the filthy goddesses Isis and Aphrodite. Perry says that her album Prism was influenced by the New Age universalist Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now (“Katy Perry’s Prism,” Billboard, Sept. 27, 2013). “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” (2 Cor. 6:14).
