WE REAP WHAT WE SOW
Dr. Benjamin Spock 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, 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 jobs.
And agreeing with them, we said it doesn't matter to me what anyone,
including the President, does in private as long as I have a job and the
economy is good.
And then someone said let's print magazines with pictures of nude
women and call it wholesome down-to-earth appreciation for the beauty of the female body.
And we said we have no problem with that.
And someone else took that appreciation a step further and published
pictures of children and then stepped further still by making them available on the Internet.
And we said they're entitled to their 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, it has no adverse effect, and
nobody takes it seriously anyway, so go right ahead..
Therefore, 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, their classmates, and themselves.
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...
