Protecting children

There’s all this talk about the war on women, but how about the war on children?

There’s all this talk about the war on women, but how about the war on children?

Roe v. Wade produced millions of casualties, Hollywood has exposed our young to the full spectrum of moral decay and violence, and now comes the assault of sex-related texts between a teacher and a 13-year-old.

Do parents really have to worry about an educator talking dirty with their kids? They already worry enough about their general physical safety, peer pressure, drugs, alcohol and guns. Now, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals has ruled it’s OK for the teacher to text a minor about sex because it’s his sacred free speech right.

Have all boundaries of moral decency been obliterated? Parents and grandparents, we must demand better than this court’s decision for the protection of the next generation.
