Lexington's New "Captain" Parker

THANK GOD for Lexington's new "Captain" Parker! The original Parker led the Minutemen in their stand against the Redcoats in the first battle of the American Revolution on Lexington Green -- the shot heard 'round the world.

Battle of Lexington, April 19, 1775. Captain Parker to the Minutemen:
"Stand your ground. Don't fire unless fired upon. But if they mean to have a war, let it begin here!"

Now, one David Parker of Lexington, has sparked a new revolution. Finally, in Parker, we've found someone with a soldier's courage to stand up to the out-of-control Massachusetts schools . Schools which regularly ignore the law and parental rights, and push their homosexual agenda on even our very youngest children.

Parker, father of a kindergartner in Lexington's Estabrook School, was arrested Wednesday by the Lexington Police for “trespassing” at his son’s school, spent the night in the Lexington Police Station, and was arraigned in handcuffs in Concord District Court this morning. Why?

He had objections to homosexual curriculum materials and possible discussions in his child’s kindergarten class, all done without his advance notification and permission (as required by state law). He'd jumped through all the hoops trying to get the school to comply with state law, and honor his request that his child be "opted out" of such classes. The school and superintendent refused to come to an agreement which would comply with this state law.

Yes, David, you are a soldier! Suit up...

Ephesians 6: 10-18. The Armor of God
10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
