      Concerned Student



      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 yourself,”

      And we said, OK…


      Dr. Benjamin Spock said
      we shouldn’t spank our children
      when they misbehaved
      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…


      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.


      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 country is in!

      Good comments. Here is a poem:

      Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton, Colorado, was invited to address the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee.
      The following poem is part of the transcript:

      I wrote a poem just four nights ago that expresses my feelings best.

      Your laws ignore our deepest needs,
      Your words are empty air.
      You’ve stripped away our heritage,
      You’ve outlawed simple prayer.
      Now gunshots fill our classrooms,
      And precious children die.
      You seek for answers everywhere,
      And ask the question Why?”
      You regulate restrictive laws,
      Through legislative creed.
      And yet you fail to understand,
      That God is what we need!

      Generally the God in the Christian bible is omniscient and therefore knows that US Constitutional rulings are irrelevant in Canada. (Yes, I went to taxpayer funded religous schools in Ontario where prayer was the norm. It didn’t stop a gunman, Michael Slobodian, from shooting up a few people days before I went there for summer school. Oh well.)

      Wonder who dared sign an email as “God?” Must’ve missed the tablet saying “Thou shalt have no false gods before me” or was it “Thou shalt not take the name of Lord thy God in vain.”

      Plenty of people in religious schools in other countries suffer these tragedies. (See w w ) And how dare they forget the Amish in Pensylvannia last year because it doesn’t suit their view. Perhaps this email is more suitable for a political board.
