|I think this pretty well hits it on the head about
one of the main sources of what-went-wrong in Littleton.
Whoa! What in the world is happening with our kids today? 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
Then someone said you had 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, OK.
Remember Dr. Benjamin Spock, who said 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, OK, we won't spank them.
Then someone said that teachers and principals better not discipline
our children when they misbehave. And our administrators said
whoa, no one 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.
Then someone else said, 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. And we said, that's
another great idea. Then someone said, let's let our daughters
have abortions if they want, and we won't even have to tell
their parents. And we said, that's a grand idea.
And then some of our top officials said that it doesn't matter
what we do in private as long as we do our jobs. And we said,
as long as I have a job and the economy is good, it doesn't
matter to me what anyone does in private.
So 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.
Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can
figure it out.
I think it has a great deal to do with "we reap what we
Isn't that what the BIBLE says?
