On a New Jersey school district’s summer reading list for middle and high school: one book depicting lesbian statutory rape, and another depicting a drug-fueled homosexual orgy. How did that happen? Call it the record-setting worst excuse ever for a bad policy!
Chuck Earling, superintendent of Monroe Township Schools in Williamstown, N.J., told Fox News that the committee “didn’t feel it was inappropriate based on the language that’s used, common language used on the street.”
Their sexual/ethical decisions were based on … common language used on the street. That’s right, folks—if he wasn’t misquoted (and I checked as many news sites as I could find), that’s what the man said. Is that astonishing or what? If ethics are based on the street, then they might as well toss out their anti-bullying policy along with all sexual decency.
Yes, it does say in the Bible that “a little child shall lead them.” But it was talking about children leading wolves, leopards, calves, and lions, in the day when peace reigns through all creation. It wasn’t about responsible (?) adults letting kids at the lowest ethical denominator determine what’s right and wrong.
