I am not sure how any letter I sent would be used, revised, rewritten, or distributed. I therefore decline. I am still making the offer for you to come to our school any time to see for yourself. Whoever you checked with was not
accurate or truthful. What you published was also not accurate or truthful.
As you can see, Mr. Bowers refused to give an official statement that the Pledge had not been cancelled and has continued without interruption (as one an see in the last paragraph of my email),and further suggested that I would
re-write his statement or revise it, strongly implying that I am unethical. This made my blood boil. Furthermore he apparently lied to me by stating that this situation never happened. Otherwise he would not hesitate to make the official statement I requested in order to set the record straight. He might have been truthful and said that yes, there was a situation and it is now corrected. But he chose instead to lie that it never ever did happen, yet refuses to give an official statement to that fact. I fired off a final email:

Subject: Re: Response
Dear Mr. Bowers,
You inadvertently revealed it to be true about the Pledge cancellation in your school by blatantly refusing to send me an official statement refuting what had been relayed to me.I offered to publish your response intact as you sent it. For you to suggest that I would re-write or revise YOUR response is repugnant enough for me to consider your accusation a personal insult which is not acceptable. I withdraw any further consideration toward you. This concludes all contact between us. The door is now closed.
Yours Very Truly,
Rev. Austin Miles
By all reason, it appears that Mr. Bowers lied, which can be concluded by carefully reading this exchange of emails. It is widely believed that Obama lied about having been born in America since he refuses to show his birth certificate, his university records or passport applications. Indeed, he has paid almost 2 milllion dollars to have lawyers block anyone who wants to examine his records. He has had every opportunity to show his birth certificate.. That is all it would take. But he refuses, the same as Mr. Bowers refuses to make an official statement that the pledge incident never happened in his school and has continued uninterrupted. People are pretty sure that Obama has been lying. And it appears that Mr. Bowers is also lying. And his school is a Charter School, which is supposed to be a few notches above the public schools.
It is said that one will never find an angrier man, than a man who is in the wrong. Why would Mr. Bowers lie?.Is it to cover up the Pledge issue? Is it a Muslim issue? An American Issue? A Marxist Issue? It has to be one of these since he accused me of “propaganda,” deceit etc. You can learn a lot about a man by the way he accuses others. A real revelation on this can be found in:Romans 2:1: “Therefore thou art inexcusable O man, whosever thou art that judgest; for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest, doest the same things.” In other words, people tend to judge others according to their own standard of conduct.
Due to the accusatory, rude conduct Mr. Bowers exhibited to me, which is a great example for the kids he teaches, this story will remain as it is. The door is closed. I was willing to do a follow up piece with the school’s side of the story told. Mr. Bowers blocked it by arrogantly refusing to give an official statement that the event never happened, and it would have been published intact. And to you, Vallivue Academy, it is respectfully suggested that in the future, never let Mr. Bowers represent your school to the press. He will not help your image one bit.
Mr. Bowers ‘invited’ me to visit the school to see for myself that the pledge is being said every day. First of all, I am many miles from Idaho. Second, if he knew I was coming, I could be sure that I would definitely see first hand, that the Vallivue students faithfully say the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, of The United States of America….every day!
This entire mess provides yet another example as to why parents should get their kids out of all public schools and enroll them in Christian schools, or, home school them.
