When God was removed from our public schools some fifty years ago, He was replaced with things like atheism, evolution, socialism and hedonism. I looked online and found the following definitions for hedonism:
1. the doctrine that pleasure or happiness is the highest good.
2. devotion to pleasure as a way of life:
The later Roman emperors were notorious for their hedonism.
Instead of being taught to think of God and others, kids are being taught that it’s all about them and that they need to do what they think is right for them. This includes sexual activities.
Planned Parenthood educational programs being used in many public schools teach kids that having sex is not something to be reserved for marriage; rather it’s something to experiment with. They are even encouraged to experiment with homosexual relations. In some schools, condoms are handed out along with information about the morning after pills and where to go to get an abortion. Kids are taught not to tell their parents what they are doing.
Common Core recommended readings include pornographic books that glorify rape, incest and pedophilia. Evidently a growing number of teachers are also reading the same books and act out what they are reading.
According to Victor Skinner with EAGNews, cases of sex crimes involving teachers and students are rising at alarming rates. Texas has seen a 27% increase in the number of teacher-student sexual relationships in the past 3 years. Kentucky went from 25 teacher-student sexual cases in 2010 to 45 in 2011. Alabama saw the number of cases they investigated nearly triple in a four year span.
Perhaps the greatest increase in the number of reported teacher-student sex crimes has taken place in one of the most liberal states in the nation, California. The state known for being the launch site for homosexuality to emerge from the closet was also the home of the free love movement and other sexual immoralities. So is it any wonder that the number of teacher-student sex crimes investigated rose to 328, a 70% increase of prior years?
Most parents believe their children are safe when they send them off to school, but that is far from the case. Not only do their kids face bullying, drugs and abuse from other students, but they are increasingly becoming the prey to sexual predators disguised as teachers and coaches.
It’s a sign of just how decadent and hedonistic American culture has become. Without God, sinful man decided for himself what is right and wrong, what they want to do and what not to do. They literally try to take the place of God, but fall infinitely short. Consequently, as we are told in Romans 1:18-31, God turns them over to their sinful and perverse lusts and desires as a punishment for turning away from Him and His statutes.
