I will not go into theological debate here, but I have always believed that if God had wanted me to have pockets or be covered He would have had those included when I was born. He gave us a skin for that. If He wanted me to be black or brown or white or yellow or red (none of which are natural colors I might add) He would have made me exactly how He wanted me. If he wanted me to be tattooed, those would have been included as well, and if He wanted me to have more holes in my body than I have, He would have included them as well. Heaven forbid, most of us leak out holes we already have...
If you believe only in evolution, then evolution would have created all of those things as well. However God, nor evolution did that now did they?
As an adult, you have certain choices you can make in your life. If you choose to molest your body for whatever reason that is up to you. If you like some old man or woman to finger your private parts putting stain or piercing's on them that too is up to you.
However getting a strange new haircut, that will grow out again, at least until you go bald, is one thing, a child has certain rights too you know. A child does not have right to permanently harm or molest him or herself, allow themselves to be abused when so much abuse is already going on in our State. As adults they have plenty of time to decide if they want these things done.
Senate Majority Floor Leader Michael Sanchez, D-Belen, said it's wrong to hold tattoo parlors responsible for enforcing communication that should already be taking place between a child and their parents.
Sen. Rod Adair, R-Roswell, bill's sponsor, said law was necessary to give parents ability to help their children make responsible decisions about tattoos and piercing's. He is correct. Without his bill parents are legally kept out of loop regarding these life-changing decisions. Yet by law, a minor can not buy a cigarette, or liquor with or without parent permission.
Let me understand this. If A child skips school a lot, parents pay price, not child. If a business sells liquor to a child, business gets fined, it can't sell liquor for a whopping single day - more on that in another article.
