Banning belief in God and especially confession of faith in Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and destroying the family are long held agendas of the Marxist Leninist Communist movement to world dictatorship, which is still being perpetrated by the Communists and their open and secret adherents.
It started well before and came to open confrontation in the United States in the U.S. Supreme Court decision to ban school prayer.
The United States Supreme Court used its' de facto arbitrary powers assigned to itself, to in effect make law, in two cases: Engel et al. v. Vitale et al 1962 and Abington School District v. Schempp 1963 to make God "illegal" in the United States. God will, of course, have the last word on that. School prayer didn't actually stop in public schools until 1963. They have gone radically downhill since then. Roe v. Wade 1973 then decided preborn children in effect were not persons unless their parents accorded them that right. Of course preborn children are persons. They are human beings made in the image and likeness of God with full right to life in His eyes from the moment of conception.
It is important from a correct perspective from Constitutional law to note that neither prayer nor children were ever treated like this by the Congress which convened with hours of prayer every day in their deliberations to form the basic law of the land, which is the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights. They retained their Congressional legislative law making power in the Congressional Houses - not the Judicial nor for that matter the Executive.
