Rape by deception and other "health" lessons....

"Hey son, what did you learn in school today?"

"Well dad, in health class we talked about 'current events'..... That if we lie about who we are... and what we do...uh... to sleep with a girl....we can be charged with rape...."

I'm so relieved that my son, a freshman in high school, is receiving essential preparation for the future. Where would we be if it were not for the good counsel of our public education system.

Yes, somehow, a proposed bill which seeks to combat 'rape by deception' was deemed a vital topic for his 'Health' class discussion.

Call me traditional, but anyone who would lie or grossly misrepresent themselves to meet a woman, get a job, or say, be elected president of the United States of America, is beyond educating. Moralizing and punishment is futile, these have reached sociopath status.

No amount of teaching or punishment is going to keep those with the power and wealth to abuse and manipulate with impunity from doing so. Ultimately, Assemblyman Troy Singleton's A3908 'Sexual Assault by Fraud' is merely a symptom. It will never be a cure! http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/2014/Bills/A4000/3908_I1.HTM

It seems more and more liberal propaganda continues to make it into today's school curriculum and classroom discussion. But is it really necessary? Where should our core values and principles really come from?

Parents need to do the heavy lifting required to raise moral, decent and upright human beings. In fact, the best path to moral righteousness is a Godly one. He must do the breaking down before we can truly be lifted up and become wholly fulfilled and eternally secure beings that seek to honestly and ethically treat our fellow man with mercy and love.

It is the self-serving secularist who seeks to seduce and ultimately exploit us.

A proper inclination lies in a trusting of the actions and confessions of the humbled and redeemed (as we cast aside the empty promises of the morally destitute). That means complete transparency and a full vetting of those who enter our lives (and seek to be our mentor, instructor, brother, lover, leader and president). We are all prone to setbacks and moral failings; it is not the crime that leaves us unrecovered but rather the cover-up. When we do fall, we must make recompense before we can be truly restored.

We walk through the fire to make it to the light. Those who have survived attacks and wear their battle scars with courage and humility will be enabled to lift up the weak and the vulnerable when they cry out for mercy and protection.

I stand with the broken and the contrite. Let the world have their slick, polished, shameless deceptors.

We are to be encouraged to walk the straight path and seek wisdom and honesty in all that we do. Unlawful allegations and vilifications may come, but may they never be rightly held against us....
