9/12 and Tea Party groups in Georgetown, Kentucky with a heart to reach youth about the message of American history and impress on them the gift of liberty just came off of a busy week. In the spirit of a Vacation Bible School, something called Vacation Liberty School has been created. According to their website, “The story behind Vacation Liberty School is in its infancy. About a month ago, VLS was a great idea that one man had in a Kentucky 9/12 group in Owensboro. He caused a ripple effect among other Kentucky 9/12ers. And, in a very short span of time, by the grace and mighty hand of God, the idea has become a reality.”
When visiting the Vacation Liberty School website, some of the first words a person sees are: “Educate, enlighten, and excite the Youth of America about the beliefs, fundamentals, and principles on which this country was founded; and empower them with the knowledge and will to preserve these ideas and liberties for our Nation ‘Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.’ II Corinthians.”
According to a www.onenewsnow.com article on Sunday, “About three dozen kids ages 10 to 15 spent five nights last week in Georgetown, Kentucky, learning about the Founding Fathers and the role of faith in the birth of the United States.”
A www.salisburypost.com article on Saturday stated that the Liberty Vacation School in Georgetown was organized by both 9/12ers and Tea Partiers, and that, “organizers say the program has drawn interest from people looking to start new chapters in Ohio, Colorado, New York, Florida and other communities in Kentucky.” The article also states that, “The curriculum includes lessons like ‘equal rights, not equal results,’ ‘recognize men don’t create rights – only God’ and ‘understanding falsehoods of separation of church and state.’” The 9/12 project also attempts to inspire Americans to unify around nine values – including honesty, hope and sincerity.
Vacation Liberty School took place in the basement of Gano Baptist, and Reverend Wayne Lipscomb, who is the pastor of the church, told Salisbury Post that he had no political motivations for allowing Liberty Vacation School to take place there. He added that, “I think our kids need to know about the Founding Fathers and they need to understand the connection between God and the Founding Fathers. They don’t need to hear the revisionists’ stories of history.”
