HR 1388 National Service Program – Youth Will Not Be Allowed to Express Religious Beliefs?

HR 1388.  The House passed the Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act on Monday. The bill includes language indicating young people will be forced to participate in mandatory national service programs. The bill also states that “service learning” will be a mandatory part of the youth curriculum.

However what is really interesting about this bill is that the mandatory youth plan also forbids members from attending religious services and forbids youth from witnessing their religious beliefs. How this will be interpreted remains to be seen but here’s a copy of the bill so you can read it for yourself.


Section 125 (42 U.S.C. 12575) is amended to read as follows:


‘(a) Prohibited Activities- A participant in an approved national service position under this subtitle may not engage in the following activities:

‘(1) Attempting to influence legislation.

‘(2) Organizing or engaging in protests, petitions, boycotts, or strikes.

‘(3) Assisting, promoting, or deterring union organizing.

‘(4) Impairing existing contracts for services or collective bargaining agreements.

‘(5) Engaging in partisan political activities, or other activities designed to influence the outcome of an election to any public office.

‘(6) Participating in, or endorsing, events or activities that are likely to include advocacy for or against political parties, political platforms, political candidates, proposed legislation, or elected officials.

‘(7) Engaging in religious instruction, conducting worship services, providing instruction as part of a program that includes mandatory religious instruction or worship, constructing or operating facilities devoted to religious instruction or worship, maintaining facilities primarily or inherently devoted to religious instruction or worship, or engaging in any form of religious proselytization.

‘(8) Providing a direct benefit to–

‘(A) a business organized for profit;

‘(B) a labor organization;

‘(C) a partisan political organization;

‘(D) a nonprofit organization that fails to comply with the restrictions contained in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 except that nothing in this section shall be construed to prevent participants from engaging in advocacy activities undertaken at their own initiative; and

‘(E) an organization engaged in the religious activities described in paragraph (7), unless Corporation assistance is not used to support those religious activities.

‘(9) Conducting a voter registration drive or using Corporation funds to conduct a voter registration drive.

‘(10) Such other activities as the Corporation may prohibit.

‘(b) Ineligible Organizations- No assistance provided under this subtitle may be provided to the following types of organizations (including the participation of a participant in an approved national service position under this subtitle in activities conducted by such organizations) or to organizations that are co-located on the same premises as the following organizations:

‘(1) Organizations that provide or promote abortion services, including referral for such services.

‘(2) For-profit organizations, political parties, labor organizations, or organizations engaged in political or legislative advocacy.

‘(3) Organizations that have been indicted for voter fraud.

‘(c) Nondisplacement of Employed Workers or Other Volunteers- A participant in an approved national service position under this subtitle may not perform any services or duties or engage in activities which–

‘(1) would otherwise be performed by an employed worker as part of his or her assigned duties as an employee or by another volunteer who is not a participant in an approved national service position; or

‘(2) will supplant the hiring of employed workers or work of such other volunteers.’.

  1. What exactly to they intend to force my children then to participate in? It sounds to me that the “powers that be” want only their own agenda supported since they are also not to “attempt to influence legislation”. Forgive me if I am mistaken, but does anyone remember Hitler’s youth program?

  2. how could this possibly be enforced? How would parents let their children be subjected to this kind of teachings? Where did this bill originate and how come it is not talked about on the news networks?

  3. Over my dead body will I allow the government to dictate what my children are or are not allowed to do or believe concerning the Creator of Heaven and Earth. They can try to inforce this bill all they want, but for me and my house, we WILL serve the Lord!!!

  4. This should be sent to Fox News/perhap one of the Patriots there will research and report on this.
    I am overwhelmed by the amount of subversive acts of this Congress and the “blindsiding” that the American People are taking while being entertained with “fake” rantings by Pelosi,Frank,Dodd,Reid,etc. All a show to keep us looking the other way while they STEAL our childrens future. I am disgusted totally with BO. What a shameful president.
