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.

A Little Late Night Reading

I’m changing the type of blogs I write. I will continue to reblog from others that have valuable posts but I’m going to begin posting things that are primarily about writing, or reading. Most writers are also voracious readers.

My husband is neither a writer (although he is my manager as he has the business sense, and sees the logical side of things) nor a reader.

Lately he has asked me to read to him some of the books I have enjoyed. I began reading to him one of my all-time favorite novels by my top favorite author: Francine Rivers. The book is “A Voice In The Wind.” It is an historical novel, the first in a trilogy called “The Mark of the Lion” series. All of her books are available on Amazon.

The setting for the series is during the time of the Roman Empire. There are four main characters: Haddassah is a young Hebrew girl who barely escapes with her life when the Romans come in and destroy Jerusalem around A.D. 70. Her people were starving, and those who didn’t starve to death were either killed by the Romans or local looter, or they were taken to as slaves to Rome.

Once in Rome, Haddassah becomes a personal slave to Julia, the headstrong fifteen-year-old daughter of a wealthy Roman family. Julia has an older brother, Marcus, who is very indulgent of his little sister. Both of them live in a morally depraved society, brought on by too much wealth and political debauchery. Marcus and Julia are always at odds with their old-fashioned parents.

The fourth character is Atretes, a German warrior of the Chatti tribe. They are a barbaric race that worships the god Tiwaz. Atretes is strong and it takes six Roman soldiers to defeat his army and bring him into captivity.

I won’t spoil the story by giving all of the details, but Francine Rivers is a master at weaving the stories of these characters together. You know them. You feel their frustration, their hurts, thei desperate longing for a peace they seem unable to find, no matter how much they entertain themselves.

In these stories I see many parallels between the Roman society then and our society today. Beware, folks. We may end up with the same fate as the Roman Empire. We have taken God’s blessings for granted.

Satan’s Bid For Your Child–Final Chapter

NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN: SENSITIVITY TRAINING CONTINUED

In 1946 Dr. Leland Bradford, an executive of the National Education Association, and a number of social psychologists worked with Kurt Lewin, a pioneer behavioral scientist, researching how science could change a man’s behavior. They surveyed the work of numbers of behaviorists and sought out new methods of re-educating human behavior and social relationships. A technique was developed which they called “sensitivity training.” Dr. Bradford and his associates then decided to open shop in a large rambling Victorian estate in Bethel, Maine.

Another view of man held by sensitivity theorists is that an individual is actually many persons. He is continually faced with deciding what he is.

Here is an example of sensitivity training. Some nude marathons last 20-48 hours. Some have been staged in California under the direction of psychotherapist Paul Bindrim. Bindrim maintains that man’s clothes are both a safe-guard for his privacy and a self-imposed constraint to keep out people whom he fears. Listen! You don’t realize this, but nudity is coming to your child’s school room. There is a high school in this area that has already had a play with a nude actor.

Marathons are held in which no words are spoken; only non-sense noises are made. Gestures are permitted as well as looks, stances, and caresses. Often the people slap each other freely. Finally they collapse on the floor in a giant tangle of sublimely relaxed bodies. Sometimes people emerge from these sensitivity encounters virtually shouting, “I’m changed! I’m saved!”

Do you get it? A group of people, about the size of our choir, take off their shoes, blindfold themselves, walk around feeling each other, scream dirty four-letter words as they wish, identify someone by feeling him and hollering his name, fall back in a trance into the arms of another, and collapse in a big quagmire of human flesh on the floor feeling their way around, feeling everybody’s body while blindfolded. That is so-called “scholarship.” It’s coming to America!

Dr. Carl Rogers says, “This differs from religious conversion in that the person is saved of himself rather than from the outside.”

Now, get this. The sensitivity oriented worship service was demonstrated at the World Council of Churches’ Assembly. At this Assembly in August 1968, at Uppsala, Sweden, Mr. McGaw of WBSI at LaJolla, California said, “We find ourselves a putt-putt church in a go-go world.” In their “touch and tell” service, everyone held hands in a circle during silent prayer to begin the service. Physical contact supposedly stimulates prayer. (I say it stimulates the need for it!) Each worshiper takes his turn to stand in the center of the circle, close his eyes, fall backwards, and be passed from one member of the group to another.

Recently in two congregations in the Baltimore area, about 30 people had a sensitivity session. One of the preachers had a predominately black congregation and the other was white. Part of the session was non-verbal and they danced and hugged each other. Most participants said they had a good time. I can imagine they did.

Let’s go further. Some of the liberal churches are making every effort to have the sensitivity training as demonstrated by the World Council of Churches’ film, “Another Pilgrim.” In the final scene of this film the pastor stands nude before his congregation! Yes! Listen carefully, because some of you are supporting this filth. Why was the pastor nude? He wanted to demonstrate complete honesty to his flock. That’s church!

That film, however, is but a feeble gesture compared with the primitive nude orgy recently staged by the “Living Theater” at a suburban Madison, Wisconsin church. The UPI report points out the new direction the church is taking. Orgiastic nudity and sensitivity training have moved up to the godless temple which now frantically seeks something or someone to worship. The newspaper account tells us that “seven members of the audience stripped naked. There was swearing, spitting, arguing, and flesh pile. The general scene made Dante’s Inferno look like a temperance union meeting. The pastor said he allowed the performance simply on the terms of civil liberties.

I am already uncomfortable writing this. Since this booklet was first published in 1971, and subsequent printings were also in the 70’s, I decided to do some research to see if this is still going on today. I would encourage anyone wanting to avoid this trap, and wanting to protect their children from these vile practices to look at the following links to learn more.

WHAT YOU CAN DO?

1) Get in a good church.

2) Get your child in all the activities of the church. When the doors are open, get him there. Get Junior in the choir. You say, “He’s thirteen and his voice is changing.” Okay, let him stand with the choir and croak. You say, “He can’t sing.” Let him hum. If can’t hum, just let him move his mouth, and pray nothing will come out. “But,” you say, “Brother Hyles, Junior won’t go.” Oh, brother! What kind of parent are you? I dare my boy not to go. He is seventeen years old now, but he obeys his dad.

Get your child involved in the activities of your church. When they are five and six years old and there’s an Easter egg hunt at the church, make them go. See that they do not miss anything while they’re young so they will build their lives around the church!

It is the same old story, ladies and gentlemen. Kids go wrong because of two words—Wrong Crowd. It is the same story, but the wrong crowd is more wrong than it used to be. It used to be that if a kid didn’t behave in school, or if he just got a bad grade in conduct, Mother said, “You can’t play with him after school anymore.” He was part of the wrong crowd! Nowadays, if a kid smokes marijuana and takes LSD, we just say, “Well, it’s a free country.”

Get them in the activities and keep them out of the wrong crowd.

3) Get your child into a Christian school. (Today, I would advise home school, even if you have to pay another home-school teacher to teach your child—many “Christian” schools are merely church schools, and not much different than public schools. There are many umbrella home-schools in which some of the parents are able (and apt) to teach the children. The children get socialization without the peer pressure, and still get a good education.) Many public schools allow the home-school children to participate in athletics.

If you can’t afford it, ask God to help you provide this for your child. Be willing to make some sacrifices in order to protect your child.

I thought there were going to be two more segments, but I believe I’ve copied all that’s necessary to get the point across. Our children are our most valuable asset. They are gifts from God and our God will hold us accountable for how we provide for, educate, and protect them. Everything we need to teach them character, godliness, financial responsibility, fidelity, friendship, and a good work ethic are in the Bible. There are also many reasonably priced online Christian programs. Every child needs supervision so someone must be home (regardless of the child’s age: the best kids can still get lazy and not take school work seriously if there is no supervision.)

 I hope these articles have helped some parents out there realize that the public education is not what it used to be, and contrary to what the NEA would like us to believe, they do not have our children’s best interests at heart. God made us parents to be the governors of our children’s lives, not the government. Please take this seriously. Every child is too important to put at risk. Most Christian colleges and Bible institutes accept home school graduation as credit for entrance if the grades meet the school’s standard.

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.

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.”
