Dear Concerned Student:

I am not allowed in schools.



How did this get started....

Let's see, I think it started when Madeline Murray O'Hare complained she
didn't want any prayer in our schools.

And we said, OK...

Then, someone said you better not read the Bible in school, the Bible that
says "thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbors as
And we said, OK...
Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave
because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their
And we said, an expert should know what he's talking about so we won't spank
them anymore...
Then someone said teachers and principals better not discipline our children
when they misbehave. And the school administrators said no faculty member
in this school better touch a student when they misbehave because we don't
want any bad publicity, and we surely don't want to be sued.
And we accepted their reasoning...
Then someone said, let's let our daughters have abortions if they want, and
they won't even have to tell their parents.
And we said, that's a grand idea...
Then some wise school board member said, since boys will be boys and they're
going to do it anyway, let's give our sons all the condoms they want, so
they can have all the fun they desire, and we won't have to tell their
parents they got them at school.
And we said, that's another great idea...
Then some of our top elected officials said it doesn't matter what we do in
private as long as we do our jobs.
And we said, it doesn't matter what anybody, including the President, does
in private as long as we have jobs and the economy is good...
And someone else took that appreciation a step further and published
pictures of nude children and then stepped further still by making them
available on the Internet.
And we said, everyone's entitled to free speech....
And the entertainment industry said, let's make TV shows and movies that
promote profanity, violence and illicit sex... And let's record music that
encourages rape, drugs, murder, suicide, and satanic themes...
And we said, it's just entertainment and it has no adverse effect and nobody
takes it seriously anyway, so go right ahead...

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they
don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill
strangers, classmates or even themselves.
Undoubtedly, if we thought about it long and hard enough, we could figure it
out. I'm sure it has a great deal to do with...
Pass it on if you think it has merit! If not then just discard it...but if
you discard this thought process, then don't you dare sit back and complain
about what bad shape this world is in...

"If you can read this, thank a teacher....
If you are reading it in English, thank a soldier."

"If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it."

So true, Gene. Truth is, no one can stop it, except US. We need leaders who will step up and say that enough is enough. Whatever happened to the "majority rules" idea ? Our country is made up mostly of decent people. Why aren't they heard?
