Public school assignments routinely include material that is very sexually explicit and graphically violent.  Such material is drastically changing the way the youth of our country think.  In addition, it is encouraging them to be very permissive sexually.  Ultimately, it puts their physical, mental and emotional health at risk and makes it harder for them to make lasting bonds in marriage.

 

Many of these books have been made into R rated movies but if the movies followed the explicit writings of the books, the ratings would have to be “X.”

 

Please look at these 13 pages of objections to one book:  Handmaid’s Tale

U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. C. Everett Koop, declared violent or pornographic media a “crushing public health problem . . . a clear and present danger ... blatantly anti-human....We must oppose it as we oppose all violence and prejudice.”  Koop condemned the common content of American “literature, plays and movies,” specifically because Koop was well aware of the body of scientific literature confirming that the “transition from things imagined to things real is a very easy one” in which we “suit action to fantasy.”

      Our schools should treat our faith and religion with fairness and respect and our children should not be subjected to teachings that are against our beliefs.

      If we don't wrestle the control of education out of the federal hands that control it i.e., churches educating their own children, we will lose our religious freedom, very soon. This past election is an example of how the people are lacking needed reasoning skills, which resulted from the cognitive dissonance method (confusion) which such reading material produces, and is being used in EVERY school, along with the non-directive method of teaching, which produces relativism ( what’s right for the individual).

      This is an anti-God government that control s and corrupts the minds of its citizens through the training of our youth! I’ve been reviewing reading material for the past eight years, and concluded this is by construction! This material is being found in every school. I located the Handmaid’s Tale in a local grade school. It’s was quietly removed by the principle…thank God, but most school boards fear the ACLU and refuse to remove materials that are harmful to the health and well being of our children!! What has happened to all the safe havens that once guarded us in our youth?

      As a current GSC parent and a former GCS English/LA teacher, this issue is very troubling to me. I can assure everyone there is much richer, inspiring, and educational literature to be taught than either one of these novels without the sexuality, profanity, and without denigrating anyones religion.
