When will this madness stop?

By Angela Wittman

Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:  That thou mightest fear the Lord thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged. (Deuteronomy 6: 1, 2 KJV)
Dear Friends,

This morning I received a newsletter from a well-meaning conservative grassroots organization that seeks to influence our culture for good.  As I scrolled down the newsletter I came across this news item:

. . . * Good News! Illinois School Bans Simulated Sex at Dances Students complained to the school administration about their peers' sexually explicit "grinding dancing"... [Readers beware of sexually graphic content. AW].

Friends, please take heed to what I am about to tell you, as it is the truth.

In 1995 I was elected to our local school board and while my intention was to be an influence for good and to work with the administration, I soon found out that they were not willing to work with me due to my Christian beliefs and desire to see children taught morals.  In fact, the administration did all they could to silence and stop me because I and other parents were concerned about Planned Parenthood's materials being used in the sexual education curriculum and the amoral teaching students were receiving.

One evening I volunteered to help chaperon a student dance at the local high school. This was perhaps in the year 2000 as it was near the end of my term. My hope in volunteering was to be a godly influence on the staff and also to see how these types of school functions were conducted.  A local rock group was hired to entertain, and I found the members to be nice young men who mostly played soft rock music.  The other chaperone's were mostly staff members who had children at the dance.  For the most part, the students acted their age (young teens) and appeared to still have some reserve and modesty. However, there was a group of teens who when the lights were turned down, lost their inhibitions and simulated intimate sexual acts on the dance floor. Please take note that this event happened over 10 years ago.

Now here is my question to parents, conservatives and Christians who still have their children in the government schools:

When will this madness stop?

Why haven't you pulled your children out of the government schools? What are you waiting for?  How many young people from Christian homes have been diagnosed with sexually transmitted diseases? How many have purchased the morning after pill or hired the child-killers at Planned Parenthood to get rid of their "problem"?  The answer is too many!

Parents and pastors need to stop this madness by separating their children from the ungodly influence of the government schools.  Once they separate, they then need to teach others to do the same.

The author of the newsletter I received asks these questions:
[Emphasis in bold text is mine, AW]

If churches continue to fear the controversy of the culture in which we live, children will suffer now, and within a few years, the family unit will cease to exist for the majority of the citizens -- do Christians have concern for our neighbors, or do we only care about ourselves? We think we can shelter our own offspring (not really), but what about the kids next door? Don't they deserve our help?

Yes, the kids next door do need our help.  We must take the home school message to their parents.  We need to tell them what the government schools are teaching and just how bad it really is for their children.  We must stop wasting time and money with attempts of reforming an ungodly school system that is at war with Christian beliefs and who hates our Lord and Savior!

Christians, we are to be salt and light; we need to stop focusing on ourselves and take the glorious message of the Gospel to our neighbors, which includes discipleship:

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach  all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28: 18-20, KJV)

Amen! Now let us go forth and bring an end to this present madness!
