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 that she didn't want any prayer in our schools.

And we said okay.

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 neighbor as yourself."

And we said okay.

Dr. Benjamin Spock said that we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem.

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.

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.  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 doesn't it 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 "WE REAP WHAT WE SOW".

marty - Feb 14, 2014 05:15:12 — In 1961 they started to remove God from schools, and since that same year the levels of violence, crime, teen pregnancy, etc, etc, has been rising and rising, strangely enough in direct proportion to the removal of God and prayer and Bible, etc. Coincidence? Or could it be that in a world where there is "no absolute right or wrong" and we answer to no higher power, our youth have decided they are the only higher power that matters?
