Dear Concerned Student:


I am not allowed in schools!




How did this get started?...


Perhaps when Madeline Murray O'Hare complained
She didn't want any prayer in our schools.

And the courts said, OK.


Then, someone said you better not
Read the Bible in school,
the Bible that says
"thou shalt not kill,
Thou shalt not steal,
And love your neighbors as yourself,"

And the courts said, OK...


Dr. Benjamin Spock said
We shouldn't spank our children
When they misbehaved
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 the courts 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 the courts 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 we said,
It doesn't matter what anybody, including the President,
Does in private as long as we have jobs and the economy is good....


And someone else took that appreciation a step further
And published pictures of nude children
And then stepped further still by
Making them available on the Internet.

And the courts said, everyone's entitled to 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 the courts said,
it's just entertainment
And it has no adverse effect
And nobody takes it seriously anyway,
So go right ahead.


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, classmates or even themselves.


If we thought about it long and hard enough,
We could figure it out.
I'm sure it has a great deal to do with...
