Dear Concerned Student:

I am not allowed in schools.




How did this get started?...


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

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 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

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

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...
