Dear Concerned Student:

I am not allowed in schools.




How did this get started?...


Let's see,

I think it started when Madeline Murray O'Hare complained that she didn't want any prayer in our schools.

And we said, OK...



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 we 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



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

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...
