At what age should children be allowed to access and view pornography? According to some homosexual behavior advocates, elementary age children are not too young. Public schools in 24 states are being threatened with lawsuits filed by the ACLU if they do not remove internet filters that "censor" sites that "children involved in homosexual behavior need to access." The web filters that these advocates want disabled block access to hard-core pornography sites available on the internet. In testimony before the Pornography Commission, ACLU chief Washington lawyer stated that, in the ACLU view, our Constitution protects the distributors of child pornography from prosecution and prohibits legislatures from protecting children from exposure to hard-core pornography.
There was a time when even fathers who engaged in sexual debauchery sought to protect their children from exposure to it. Now, unfortunately, the attitude has grown that access to pornography is a right no matter what the risk to children and teens. Even with various filtering and protection measures, do we seriously believe that we can keep our tech savvy children in the home from gaining access to it?
It is well past the time for dear children of God in our churches to wake up completely to the steady progress of evil and immorality. What used to be argued as rights for "consenting adults" are quickly transforming into rights for children to choose and practice their own sexual behavior and be guaranteed access to formerly adult sites at increasingly younger ages. Is this the culture in which you want your children and grandchildren to grow? If not, it is time to stand up to this bullying by the immoralists. We have many tools at our disposal. From prayer to education to the ballot box, it is time to stand up and take responsibility for the sake of the generations that depend on us.
