Last Monday, Christian Headlines carried a report about a new statewide ethnic studies curriculum under consideration by the California Department of Education. This curriculum encourages teachers to lead their students in chants to Aztec gods in what one critic of the curriculum says is a clear refutation of the “Christian God.” Christopher Rufo, the director of the Discovery Institute’s Center on Wealth & Poverty, criticized the proposed curriculum in a column saying that it “advocates for the ‘decolonization’ of American society” and even “elevates Aztec religious symbolism.” The curriculum, he said, promotes “left-wing political ideology.”
Mr. Rufo pointed out that the curriculum recommends that teachers lead their students in a series of indigenous songs, chants, and affirmations, which appeal directly to the Aztec gods. The Aztecs ruled a large empire in Mexico in the 15th and 16th centuries. “Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka, whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifices and cannibalism as they asked him for the power to be warriors for social justice, according to Rufo. Following this, the students chant to three other Aztec gods, including, Huitzilopochtli, seeking healing epistemologies and “a revolutionary spirit.” Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for ‘liberation, transformation, and decolonization. According to Rufo, the clear implication of the chanting is for the “displacement of the Christian God.”
Rufo is convinced that under the guise of ‘equity’ and ‘empowerment,’ activists within the public education system have developed this radical new curriculum in order to transform California schools into factories for left-wing political activism.” He said, “They have recast the United States as an oppressor nation that must be deconstructed and subverted through politics. He further stated that the Aztec portion of the curriculum is “almost certainly” unconstitutional, and that public schools are prohibited from leading state-sanctioned Christian prayers; they would presumably be similarly prohibited from leading state-sanctioned chants to the Aztec god of human sacrifice.”
What is taking place in California should be of grave concern to parents of school-aged children. It should also be of concern to the rest of us in the nation, because it is said, “As California goes, so goes the rest of the nation.” Another thing for consideration is this, when we shut out God, we shut in the devil. Our nation locked God out of the schools. But in doing so we locked the devil in the schools. We need to pray for the children in California and in our nation as a whole. The Bible says, “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Pr. 22:6).
