The Woes of Ditzy Traveler: Part 1

Hi. My name is Ditzy (well, actually it’s my nickname) and I like to travel. I live in Jacksonville, Florida where the sun shines most of the time. Honey, California’s got nothing on us. My best friend, Lucy likes to travel, too, so we often take trips together. That’s us in that old, beat-up Airstream travel trailer. We’re just two old dingbats filling up life with adventure.

 We left on Friday morning, early. We like to get going before the traffic gets bad. Jacksonville during rush hour (right—rushing to the interstate parking lot on their way to work) is like trying to roll boulders up hill. Lucy comes over at two a.m. and we have coffee together. We stock the trailer the night before and leave my house around three a.m. If we hit it right, we’re out of Jacksonville by four-thirty. We’re old and we drive slow, especially with two tons pushing us. This trip we’re heading to Mount Rushmore. I think that’s in South Dakota. That’s North, right? Oh, don’t worry. Lucy has a map, or that GPS thingy. She does the navigating when I’m driving. When I get tired we pull into a rest area or gas station and switch. Then I take a nap while she drives. She wakes me up if we get lost.

Fog In The Valleys

Rain, soft as dew

Bringing clouds to earth

Filling creek beds anew

Hoofbeats of rain

That break branches from trees

Wreaking havoc with traffic

Troubles come in threes

Heavy gray clouds

Lighten as they give way to mist

That become ghost masses

Suspended over water

Filling all space between peak and schist

Another Favorite Series

Another author that I like a lot is Jan Karon. She wrote a series about a little town called Mitford. When I read them there were five books in the series.

The main character is an Episcopal priest who is lonely in the first book. He complains to God that he is in his 60’s and doesn’t have anyone with whom to share his life. The rest of the first book is about the varied ways in which God answers that complaint.

The characters throughout the series are the same; they are the populace of the town and they are as varied as the many kinds of candy in a candy store.

The books are delightful, fun reading. They made me laugh and they made me cry. I enjoyed every book I read (all five of them) in the series. Someone told me there are seven books in the series now. If her books don’t make you laugh, get your laugh button checked; it’s malfunctioning.

Satan’s Bid for Your Child: Profane Living

We asked, “Have you ever heard one of your school teachers use vulgar language in the classroom?” Eighty-seven percent said, “Yes.” “Have you ever heard a school teacher take the name of the Lord in vain in class?” Fifty percent said, “Yes.” “Do you ever hear students cursing aloud in class?” was answered “Yes” by ninety-three percent.

Now, get this. “Do any of your school friends drink?” “Yes” was answered by eighty-five percent. “Have you ever taken a drink?” Of the 230 high school students that filled out this form this morning in our high school departments, sixty-nine percent of them said, “Yes.” That’s over one-third of our First Baptist high schoolers! They’re sitting here tonight! This has happened to your children—the ones you “trust,” the ones of whom you said, “It can’t happen to my child. If he’s going to go out in the world someday, let him go now.” If sixty-nine percent of our 230 high school kids have already taken a drink of beer, whiskey, or wine, I wonder what it’s like down at the liberal churches! Do you wonder why our teens drank? I know! They were in the wrong crowd. Eighty-five percent were in a crowd that did it and thirty-nine percent went ahead and took it themselves!

What is another method the devil is using to get your child?

SENSITIVITY TRAINING

Now listen carefully! John Guernsey, education writer of the Portland “Oregonian,” recently witnessed a group of school administrators having their first experience playing sensitivity games. This is the ultimate in beastly living. Mr. Guernsey said “About fifty of the top Portland school district’s wheels, both men and women, recently took part in a sensitivity session conducted by Universeity of Portland psychologists.” Not wishing to go all out, they removed only their shoes. In one exercise the school administrators formed a circle and then took turns standing in the center letting themselves fall backward. Someone wasn’t paying close enough attention and one participant landed on the floor. The school officials’ sensitivity session also called for everyone to close his eyes, wander about the room in bare feet with arms outstretched, and try to identify others with his hands when he touched someone. You say, “Well, that’s in Oregon.” It also happened at one of our local high schools! Yes, teachers from this area met, men and women closed their eyes, blindfolded themselves, took off their shoes, felt each other, and tried to identify who they were by feeling each other! That’s heathenism! It’s going on all over this nation tonight.

Sensitivity training is sex education encouraging students to express all points of view freely. They also use four-letter words. They get together and say, “Okay, now express yourself.” If anybody wants to use a dirty four-letter word, he just screams it aloud! They say that is expressing yourself, removing all the guilt feeling, removing all the inhibitions.

To be continued Saturday. We only have two segments left to finish this information. Then I’ll move on to something else.

 I am thinking of starting a newsletter for anyone who wants to be a fan and follow my writing. Please send me your suggestions. What would you like to know? How often would you like to receive the newsletter in your email? I’m going to try to learn how to be an approachable author. All suggestions welcome. I don’t promise to use all suggestions, but I do promise to consider all of them and see what I can use with my limited techno abilities.

Satan’s Bid For Your Child–Adult Only Content

Kay’s note: Satan has been sacrificing children for centuries. When God was telling the Israelites to kill all of the people in the nations around them, a large part of the reason was that the gods they worshipped demanded the sacrifice of the first-born child. Parents would throw their newborns into the sacrificial fires of their gods while danced around naked in wild abandon, attempting to appease gods who really didn’t exist anyway. The one true God has never demanded such a sacrifice (Abraham’s directive to sacrifice his son, Isaac was a test of Abraham’s faith. God provided a substitute.) Now we sacrifice our children to the abortion god, the sex-ed god, the kids’ movies that are actually nothing more than NAMBLA’s means to corrupt our children, etc.

Coming into our schools are books, slides, and filmstrips (now DVD’s) on “How Babies Are Made.” These are for little children. “How Babies Are Made” shows chickens and dogs “in the act.” It shows Mom and Dad in bed! It is climaxed with a few pictures of a nude mother giving birth to a baby who was conceived several pages earlier. That is being taught in our schools to little children!

A coloring book of animals “in the act” is also available for the little ones, as is a teacher’s guide, which explains how babies are made. The purpose is to create an atmosphere of honesty and freedom of discussion concerning matters of reproduction, promote understanding, and correct usage of the names of body parts!

The organization that is leading the fight to place sex education in our schools is called SIECUS. The editor of SEXOLOGY magazine is on the Cooperating Board of SIECUS. Mary Calderone, who heads SIECUS, is a cooperating member of the Board of SEXOLOGY magazine. I sent someone to buy a copy of it. It contains all kinds of questionable articles. One is, “Can a Woman and Beast Enjoy Each Other?” Listen to this: “SEXOLOGY magazine fills an urgent need in its awareness of people. Because of this qualification it is being slightly revised with a different cover and title for use in the high school,” from SEXOLOGY magazine.

SIECUS helped to promote and organize seminars and special training courses for teachers in sex education. During 1967, at least 16 summer institutes for teachers were held across the country. In 1968 it more than doubled. The ultimate purpose is “to meet youngsters with frankness and honesty.” They begin with dramatic visual aids, such as “the Little Brother Doll,” prices at $17.00, and a lovely set of slides called “How Babies Are Made.” This set of colored slides largely designed by Dr. Mary S. Calderone, Executive Director of SIECUS, presents an animalistic viewpoint of sex, which is shocking and completely inappropriate for children three to eight years of age. These slides are for ages three to eight! They are cleverly and realistically executed in paper sculpture. They depict animals and human being in “the act.” (I’m using words that are not as blunt as the ones suggested by SIECUS.) While the children watch the slides, the teacher reads the narrative, which describes the action in adult, medically accurate terms.

These promoters of NEWSEX programs quote such obnoxious phrases as, “Children must discover their sexuality no later than kindergarten,” and “we must give them the whole story as quickly as possible.”

At the age of ten at the latest both boys and girls should have mastered the factual aspects of reproduction, they suggest. In many cities and schools traveling sexologists carry their wares in large canvas bags from school to school. They display their materials to sex-liberated students. Homosexuality, self-gratification, abortion, pre-marital relationship, and films such as “The Game” which depicts “a boy’s feelings after ________with a pure girl,” are but a sampling of that to which young students are exposed. “The Game” purports to warn 13 and 14-year-old girls of the game of love and its many traps. They are also taught about sex deviation, illegitimacy, and venereal diseases.

If your child were in Palo Alto, California, he may very well have the opportunity of bathing a little boy. If she were in kindergarten in Evanston, Illinois, she would be exposed to the full details of the human birth process. Perhaps she would listen to the heartbeat of a baby inside a visiting expectant mother. In the Chicago area (a few blocks away) for example, parents of only 16 out of 3,200 students refused to consent to this, and those sixteen were called by SATURDAY EVENING POST “fundamentalists from the Appalachian hills.” Brother, I’d be proud to bear that brand.

The ten-year-old students are given a detailed description of the human sexual relationship. This is followed with the step-by-step filmed growth of a baby inside the mother, the woman in labor, and the baby’s birth. Would all of the children ten years old stand up, please? That’s it! That’s the age child to whom they want to teach this “stuff”! Thank you, kids, you may be seated.

You ask, “Brother Hyles, how about our kids?” I’m glad you asked. Here’s the question we asked this morning. “Have you ever been taught in school that pre-marital sex is right?” In the high school departments of our Sunday school this morning, 48% said, “Yes!” Now you know that kids idolize their teachers. Think of it! Nearly half of our teens have been taught in the classroom that pre-marital sex is all right! Now do you wonder why some are turning out bad?

This afternoon as I read the results of our survey I wept as I learned what our kids had experienced. I thought, if this is true about our kids, I wonder in what kind of shape most teenagers are. I warn ours constantly. If they are in this condition, how about the others? I’ll tell you about the others! Millions have swallowed this philosophy of loose sex, loose love, and free love. Our country is gone unless we have a moral revolution!

What else is the devil shooting at your child?

Next segment will be posted Saturday, Aug. 15.

Rock Music Part 4

CHEETAH is one of the big magazines aimed at teenagers. It quotes a New York musician as saying, “If the establishment knew what today’s popular music is saying, not what the words are saying, but what the music itself is saying, they wouldn’t just turn their thumbs down it; they’d ban it. They’d smash all the records and arrest anyone who would try to play it!” That was said by one of the leading New York City musicians. Anybody that knows anything about music knows that the music itself carries a message.

Frank Zappa, leader of a rock group called “Mothers of Invention” said, “The loud sounds and the bright lights of today are tremendous indoctrination tools. It is possible to modify the human chemical structure with the right combination of frequencies. If the right kind of beat makes you tap your foot, what kind of beat makes you curl your fist and strike?” Zappa, whose group has recorded some “lollapaloozers” in the fields of sex, drugs, and revolution, knows what he’s talking about despite his mangy bear, long hair, and hippie costume; he has a master’s degree in music.

Fifty years ago Lenin stood before a Communist Youth League and said, “We’ll have to change the culture of a nation if it is to go communistic.” Nine years later (about forty years ago) a department was formed by the communist government in Russia to infiltrate America with what we have facing us now!

Such atheists as Madeline Murray O’Hare have taken cases to the Supreme Court, which has taken the Bible and prayer from our public schools; yet, under the guise of freedom, traitors are allowed to speak on our college campuses. We have become a nation that allows someone to flaunt God and shout in our faces, “I’m going to kill you,” while we say, “You’re ‘free’ to do it.” They appear on our television stations speaking in the name of peace, make light of the Bible, deny God, and talk about free love while we say, “Freedom.” I wish they’d put more television cameras on places like Bob Jones University where girls have to wear their dresses down to their knees and decency prevails. I’m an American citizen who thinks that when a person uses an American flag to wash his car, he ought to be put in the penitentiary! I’m an American who thinks if a man says he’s going to break our laws, burn our buildings, and destroy our society, we ought to put him in prison before he does it. I’m an American who says when a man kills seven nurses in cold-blooded murder, it shouldn’t take a quarter of a century to make him pay for his crime. I’m an American who still believes in capital punishment because the Bible teaches it!

It is time some preachers got angry at what Satan is doing TODAY. We must get back to decency. Rock music is ruining our young people and overwhelming our country with communism. What can we do about it? Here is what we must do:

  1. Teenagers, destroy every record, picture, and magazine you have that has anything to do with these revolutionary singing groups. Don’t give them away. Burn them! Break them! Destroy them!
  2. Parents, don’t allow such music to be played in your home. I mean, do not even allow it on your television screen!
  3. Do not allow Gospel words sung to a jungle beat.
  4. Do not just take away the bad music, but put good music in your home.

Recently I listened to good music as I went to sleep. I’d wake up again, listen to music awhile, and go back to sleep. I found myself wanting to sleep and wanting to wake up both because I wanted to hear the music. Do you know what? I slept better. I was refreshed the next morning. Good music will do something for you. Play good music on your radio. Be sure that the music you play doesn’t have the jungle beat that is dedicated to the destruction of the morals of your children and the freedom that your children enjoy.

Some of you will rebel against what I’ve preached, and you’ll walk out those doors criticizing me at the expense of your own children! You’ll let your little darlings have their own way, listen to rock, and follow the suggestions of the words and music, but you wait! You will regret it later. I know of families who have walked out after a sermon like this criticizing the Preacher and the message in front of their children. Now they wish they hadn’t done it. “Preacher hash” for a midnight snack doesn’t hurt me one bit, but it really does hurt your children.

In Jesus’ name, sing “psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord” (Colossians 3:16) while you are “speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns, and spiritual songs, spiritual songs, singing, and making melody in your heart to the Lord.” (Ephesians 5:19)

Kay’s note: I hate the lyrics to the theme song from Frozen. Adults may understand the context of the words no wrong, no right, no rules, but children just hear the words. It sends the message that we have the freedom to do as we please and no one has the right to tell us we are wrong. The Bible clearly tells us that there is a right and a wrong; there are rules. When we don’t follow the rules we pay the consequences of our poor choices. Look at all of the single moms trying to raise kids on their own, struggling to make ends meet. Their kids (regardless of race or ethnicity) often end up in gangs because they have no relationship with that single parent because the parent is working so hard. The child, needing acceptance wherever he/she can find it, may end up in a gang, or selling drugs to try to help with the family finances. No consequences? No right or wrong? Look around you, people. Wake up and smell the waste and refuse of destroyed lives. And don’t blame God for the problems when He gave you the rules (start with the Ten Commandments, then read the rest of the Bible), and you chose to go your own way.

Rock Music Part 3

Paul cantor of the “Jefferson Airplane” said on the Les Crane Show, “The new rock music is intended to broaden the generation gap, alienate parents from their children, and prepare young people for revolution.” There was a day when such filth was given in little papers that were sold between the covers of magazines or underneath the counter, but now they get on the television programs, look us square in the eye, and with the Supreme Court’s sanction say, “We are trying to alienate children from parents and cause revolution in America.” And we pay them to do it! How long will we be so foolish!

Bob Dylan is called by communist People World Publication as “America’s greatest poet.” LOOK magazine said that he is “unchallenged as a teen and college-crowd absolute hipster.” Here is one of his recordings:

Come, mothers and fathers throughout the land,

Don’t criticize what you can’t understand.

Your sons and daughters are beyond your command.

Your old road is rapidly aging;

Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand

For the times they are a-changing,

The line is drawn,

The curse is cast,

The slow one now will later be fast

As the present now will later be past

The order is rapidly fading

The first one now will later be last

For the times they are a-changing.

So much of the music in our nation is dedicated to revolution. Phil Ochs is one of the heroes and darlings of the revolutionaries. (By the way, these songs are played on radio stations in Hammond and Chicago, and their records are selling by the millions.) Phil has one called, “I Ain’t Marchin’ Anymore.” That one is against the Vietnam War. How do you like this one for a song, “The Draft Dodger Rag”?  Our boys and girls are listening to it! Phil Ochs said, “The Vietcong are right. We should support Ho Chi Minh” He has created such popular lines as “White boots marchin’ in yellow land, We’re fighting in a war we lost before the war began. We’re the white boots marchin’ in a yellow land, and Cops, soldiers of the world.” “The War’s Over” has these words:

Serve your country in her suicide

Find a flag so you can wave goodbye

But just before the end,

Treason might be worth a try.

The Lovin’ Spoonful, another singing group, published an album recently entitled, “Revolution ’69.”

  1. Rock music is definitely promoting the sale and use of drugs in America. In the authentic biography of the Beatles we are told that they started using drugs at the beginning of their career. This is no secret. Every time you buy their records you are paying for dope and are hooked up with a culture that is dedicated to the destruction of America and the propagation of narcotics. The Beatles have a song entitled, “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.” Lucy-L-in the Sky-S-with Diamonds-D- and it’s publicized LSD.” They have code words in their songs the hippie crowd understands. As they sing the songs, they are speaking about drugs.

Gordon McClendon, a Texan who owns thirteen radio stations across the country, decided to take all the music off his radio stations that had anything to do with drugs or the use of drugs. He was attacked and blasted even by a leading magazine because of his action!

If I weren’t a Christian, I think my cultural taste would be above such trash. If I didn’t believe in God, I still would find it disgusting. Not only does this jungle beat go against my Christian principles but it also opposes my culture, refinement, and taste.

Many of the leading songs have been admittedly written under the influence of drugs. Here is “White Rabbit” as sung by the Jefferson Airplane.

One pill makes you larger,

And one pill makes you small,

And the ones that mother gives you don’t do anything at all;

Go ask Alice when she’s ten feet tall

And if you off chasin’ rabbits,

Then you know you’re going to fall

Tell ’em a hook, a smokin’ caterpillar

Has given you the call.

Go ask Alice when she was just small

Feed your head! Feed your head!

Wouldn’t Shakespeare have been proud of that? (By the way, what ever happened to Shakespeare?) We’re rearing a generation of revolutionaries, and this music has much to do with it!

Now listen to the words of the Beatles’ hit, “She’s Leavin’ Home.”

She’s havin’ fun,

Fun is the thing tht money can’t buy,

Something inside that’s always denied for many years

Bye, bye, she’s leavin’ home. Bye, bye.

I wonder how many girls have heard that “song” played by some disc jockey on a radio station and have left home to go into sin. One mother called me the other day, and she was crying as she said, “Brother Hyles, my daughter has been to your Sunday school. She has gone to your church, and she’s left home and gone over to the Village Boutique! She’s over there! What can I do about it? What can I do?” I wonder how many young girls have listened to this kind of communist-inspired filth and have left home, Mother, and decency.

I wept as I read about a rock music festival on the east coast. A half million young people attended. They said it was characterized by narcotics and nudity, yet, the merchants of the town said, “They’re fine young people” as those who do not loot stores and burn buildings. “fine young people,” but they gathered there and lived in a cesspool of iniquity, vulgarity, lasciviousness, adultery, fornication, dope and everything that’s indecent and got by with it!

When the men on the chessboard get up and tell you where to go

And you’ve just had some kind of mushroom, and your mind is moving low

         Go ask Alice, I think she’ll know

        When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead

        And the white knight is talking backwards

        And the red queen’s off with her head

       Remember what the dormouse said

       Feed your head! Feed your head!

Rock Music continued

Part 2 of the section on Rock Music taken from “Satan’s Bid For Your Child.” This is a lengthy section and has two more parts after this one. Please remember that this was originally published in 1971. Still, it is enlightening as we look at our society today and the near absence of any moral code of conduct.

I am also not advocating “long-haired” music in church. I love the classics, but there’ll never be a classic played on that organ during a service as long I am pastor of this church. The church service is not the place for classics. I’m saying that if or churches want to get back the power of God and have changed lives, revival atmosphere, mourner’s benches, and folks getting born again, they’ll have to have the right kind of music. I’m talking about Billy Sunday, Homer Rodeheaver, Dwight Moody, R.A. Torrey kind of music. I’m talking about “At Calvary,” “At the Cross,” “Dwelling in Beulah Land,” “How Firm a Foundation,” “What a Friend We Have in Jesus,” “Wonderful Words of Life,” “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name,” and “Jesus is Coming Again.” I’m talking about the solid songs tht have helped build the church and great revivals.

Now if music is so life changing and so atmosphere determining, the communists are certainly not going to bypass it in their efforts to take over America. The communists are master propagandists. Something that affects a nation so much would certainly not be bypassed by people who are as brilliant as our communist adversaries. In 1920 Lenin spoke at the third all-Russian Congress of Young Communists Leagues, and said: “If we are going to spread our doctrine, we’re going to have to rework the culture.” In 1929, the Russians founded an Association of Proletarian Musicians just for one purpose—to place communist influence on the music of the world. That means, ladies and gentleman, that for forty years there has been a department in Russia—just like our Department of the Interior, Department of Commerce Department of Agriculture, etc.—dedicated to spreading communist-type music around the world. The House of Un-American Activities Committee called Sidney Pinklestein the “cultural spokesman of the communist conspiracy.” Pinklestein said, “Break down the barriers in America between classical and popular music.” It is no surprise then that that barrier is being broken down.

Television and radio programs by the dozens which have traditionally been for good solid music now have on their programs such guests as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. I can’t sing, I don’t know much about music, but I know that is not music!

You say, “foolishness, Preacher. How could the communists take over the country with music?”

Plato said in his “Republic,” “the introduction of a new kind of music should be shunned as imperiling the whole state.” Many generations ago Plato begged the legislature to ban all music of an effeminate and licentious character, for “It will destroy our nation,” he said. One hundred years before the Beatles ever came Henry David Thoreau made this statement in his writing to Walden: “Music may be intoxicating. It has helped cause the destruction of the Greek and Roman Empires and it will sooner or later destroy America and England.” These were not excited reactionaries. These were men who knew what music could do to a society. The ancient legislators felt that they could not form a state without the help of a lyric and maybe even a dramatic poet.

Scientists have experimented with dogs and have found that certain music played while dogs are eating cases them to lose their appetites or to increase the action of their salivary glands which causes them to eat more.

Just as music will stir the appetite for food, music will also stir other appetites as well. There is a direct correlation between music and beastly living—immorality, indecency, dope addiction, LSD, filthy bodies, long hair, shaggy beards, and dirty feet. You have a jungle beat and yu will have jungle people!

  1. Rock music is being used by communists to bring communism into America! Consider the Beatles’ hit, “Back in the U.S.S.R.” Capitol Records says of this song, “It is the fastest selling record in recording history.” Many of your kids are listening to it, and you know nothing about it. Here are the words:

            Been away so long I hardly now the place,

Gee, it’s good to be back home,

Leave it to tomorrow to unpack my case;

Honey, disconnect the phone,

I’m back in the U.S.S.R.

You don’t know how lucky you are, boys

Back in the U.S.

Back in the U.S.

Back in the U.S.S.R.

Well, the Ukraine girls really knock me out.

They leave the West behind

Moscow girls make me sing and shout

That ‘Georgia’s always on my mind’

I’m back in the U.S.S.R.

Show me around your snow-peaked mountains

Away down south

Take me to your daddy’s farm

Let me hear your—(I would NOT pronounce this word) ring out,

Come and keep your comrade warm

I’m back in the US.S.R.

Boy, you don’t know how lucky you are boys,

Back in the U.S.S.R.

That’s the Beatles’ latest hit and it is being sold in record numbers to your boys and girls. Young people, if you buy it or listen to it, you are not only unpatriotic, you are not right with God! A lot of you parents have no idea what your children are hearing.

We spend seventy million dollars a year in America fighting the communism and the atheism of Russia, and yet the outstanding record as far as sales is concerned is not “Back Home Again in Indiana,” “Back in Virginia Where I was Born,” or “The Eyes of Texas,” but it’s “Back in the U.S.S.R.” The honest simple truth is that we are being choked to death by our so-called freedom. Nobody has a right to be free enough to steal our freedom! We have the idea that we can have peaceful coexistence with Soviet Russia. My brother, Russia is as dedicated as ever to destroying “American freedom.”

Satan’s Bid For Your Child Part 4-Narcotics

I was on the airplane the other day and beside me there was a little paper named Midnight, dated May 24, 1971. An astounding result of a study by Lionel Baker, an Illinois attorney was given. For the juvenile court system of Illinois he gave questionnaires to 7,000 youthful drug offenders during the past year. The young people were asked who first introduced them to drugs. Now listen! Four out of ten said, “teacher.” Think of it! Forty percent of 7,000 kids on dope said that a school teacher first introduced them to drugs!

Mr. Baker then interviewed over 100 students from various high schools which had been charged with drug abuse and found that 37 had first been “turned on” by their teachers. This verified his original findings. In the article he said, “One girl told me that she knew some of her friends used drugs, but she refused. Then she attended a party where several young teachers, recent college graduates, were chaperoning, and the teachers passed out several marijuana cigarettes. When she saw her teacher smoking she thought, “Why not? Now she is a regular user,” said Baker.

Several students said they had often smelled marijuana smoke in the student rest rooms, but one day after school, they walked into the teachers’ lounge and smelled marijuana. They said, “If it’s all right for the teachers, I guess it must be all right for us.”

Altogether, 10,000 teachers from 28 states were surveyed and it was found that over 50 percent of them had used drugs and that 24 percent used them regularly. Perhaps this is because these young teachers got used to sneaking drug trips when they were college students, and now that they are working and have apartments, they can used drugs openly at their dinner get-together parties. Drugs are a part of their lives.

The article went on to say that when students get together with their teachers for after-school work, at school dances, etc., they see many of their teachers indulging in their favorite pastime, which is taking dope. Students who would never have dreamed of touching marijuana or other narcotics even if they knew some students used it then picked it up easily. Many times they do it to prove to the teacher that they are hip. Students were interviewed who were scared to death of LSD but who used it because their teachers told them all about their trips. Of course, in every case students were interviewed who had been caught using drugs while their teachers went free since no one ever suspected them of being the real culprits.

Lionel Baker point out that as the average age of teachers drops, the rate of drug use among them climbs. Many young people who were part of the drug generation of the mid and late 60’s are now teachers, so it is logical that much information about drug use will be passed down to the next generation by today’s young teachers. Here is the sad thing: An educator said, “We can’t fire the teachers who use drugs, because we’d have only half of our teachers left. And we can’t tell the kids to stay home. I guess we’ll just have to lie with it.”

“Well!” you say, “Preacher, I’m glad our students don’t do it.” Oh, do you want some statistics about that? All right. This morning this question was asked of our First Baptist high schoolers: “Have you ever been approached in school by someone who wanted to sell you marijuana or any other narcotic?” Over 20 percent of our children said somebody had approached them at school trying to sell or give them narcotics.

The next question will shock you! “Have any of your school friends used narcotics?” Over 50 percent of our high school children this morning said they run with somebody who uses narcotics. If you take away the Hammond Baptist High School kids out of this, do you think any of our teenagers that go to the public schools have a crowd compete free of narcotics?

“Have you ever used drugs?” was also on the questionnaire. “Yes” is the answer given by 27 percent of the children in our Sunday school this morning. Imagine, 27 out of 250, over 10 percent of our boys and girls have used drugs.

Everybody, listen to me! Some of you parents are a little peeved at me right now, and I know your child has smoked marijuana! Don’t come to me and ask me, for I won’t tell you. If you haven’t enough faith in me to believe me and put some trust and confidence in somebody who sees what’s going on and is trying to help your kids, don’t you come and ask me! I’m not going to tattle on your kids. I’m trying to help them, and that’s more than you’re trying to do. Listen, since I’ve been Pastor of this church, practically every parent who has defended his child and said, “I trust my child! My child wouldn’t lie!” has a child who has lied. I know! That kind of parent rears a child that plays around. You say, “Well, I trust my child!” You should know where your child is every moment of every day. You’d better see to it that your child is in the right crowd all the time. There’s not a child in this building, I don’t care who it is – my boy, my girls, every kid in this building – that couldn’t be lured if he were in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong crowd!

I’m not through with that subject. Now hang onto your seats! We also asked, “Have you ever sold any drugs?” We had 10 pushers in our high school department this morning! In most cases they come from the homes of people that would not defend what I’m saying right now. I could call the names of five of them who are in this building right now! They have been caught pushing marijuana. I know who they are.

“Do you know of any teacher who uses drugs?” was also asked this morning. Twenty percent said yes. They know teachers who are on drugs.

The devil wants to get your child. He is using revolution, dirty books, and narcotics, but there’s more:

Pro_14:34 Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. Tell me, people, are our children safer since we’ve relaxed all of ouf morals? Are they happier? Are we better off now that we have more single-parent families due to all of the unmarried parents that have been abandoned by their sperm donors? Has violence decreased?
