Secure the border, secure Internet connections...what about securing our children's minds?Written by Daviyd Peterson
Everyone is talking about U.S. borders not being secure - illegal aliens streaming over our borders, about securing our broadband connections from hackers, and I was just curious about silence of securing our children's minds.
Has anyone been paying attention to our most precious treasure being assaulted on a daily basis by equivalent of illegal aliens - a failing education system, drugs, violence, teen pregnancy and immoral attacks on all levels? Our children's spiritual borders are being left unguarded, and this assault is during most critical years of their lives when it comes to learning about becoming a whole person when they become adults. The Southern Baptist Convention to their credit has developed a resolution "to warn their members concerning toxic spiritual nature of government school system". The resolution further calls on churches to "become aggressive and proactive in starting Christian schools and in supporting homeschooling".
That is a wake-up call and others need to be sounding alarm across our nation. Securing broadband Internet connections cannot be more important than securing a loving realtionship with our children, instead of them forming a relationship with blurred PG-13/R rated broadcasts coming from television.
Parents, family, neighbors, and friends should be sounding trumpet about protecting our children's spiritual borders.

This site also has a link to http://www.getthekidsout.org/ a grass roots effort to educate parents about loss of morals in public school system and full resolution.
