Students are Sitting Ducks

Good morning, Jim. It was just another day in Georgia, when a little boy decided to wear his green T-shirt to school. He was SO proud! That shirt with the globe-and-anchor Marine Corps symbol and U.S.M .C. in big block letters on the front was a gift from his Marine-Corps uncle! And it had “Marine Corps” spelled out right across his shoulders on the back. He was SO proud and his buddies liked his shirt, but somebody at his public school in Walton County told him he could not wear that shirt in school! His granddaddy is REALLY upset, because the boy’s uncle is granddaddy’s other son who’s still in the Marine Corps, serving in Afghanistan!
That story makes me wonder what happened when those gay-straight alliance club T-shirts were worn to school with the homosexual agenda spelled out on the front. Students got them last October to wear to school the next week, so they could entice other kids to promote homosexuality, too. I can’t imagine anyone telling them they can’t wear those shirts to school!
Now, go to a website called H8SUX.com and you’ll read this: “We are recruiting kids to the cause of promoting the acceptance of homosexuality in schools. This free T-shirt will be a pro-gay billboard plastered on the chests of thousands of kids in classrooms across the nation. Our agenda is simple: to tell kids that it’s ‘OK4U2BGAY.’” Then, they remind the kids they don’t need anyone’s permission to get those T-shirts!
But that’s not all H8SUX.com is doing. They say they’re sending “a pink school bus traveling the nation school-to-school giving away thousands of free ‘OK4U2BGAY’ tees to teens to fight homo-H8! Soon, H8SUX.com will be loading up a team of activists … and doing free t-shirt giveaways outside schools and in front of media cameras.” AND, they’ll send a free pro-gay T-shirt to any teenager who’ll make a YouTube video pledging to speak out in support of gay marriage and against homophobia at school.
How could it happen in the United States that school children can be walking billboards to recruit more kids into alternate lifestyles, but a seven-year-old can’t wear a Marine Corps T-shirt to school? The answer is simple. When God was kicked out of school, morality was dismissed as irrelevant and students became sitting ducks for every kind of evil.
