Christian, don't wait for schools to step in for your kids

Aaron Baer, president of the Center for Christian Virtue (CCV), formerly known as Citizens for Community Values, says children are under assault "unlike ever before."

"10 years ago, if you would have told anyone that we're telling eight-year-olds that they can choose their gender and that America is a systematically racist country in all forms and irredeemable in any way, you would have thought that's crazy," Baer submits. "But that's where we are today."

He adds that things will not get better until Christians get serious about putting real pressure on the schools.

"That's not going to happen through a schoolboard campaign or anything like that," Baer continues. "That's going to happen through churches getting into the education business and giving families a real option of someplace else to send their kids."

The CCV president has lately been speaking out against "The Poet X," a graphic book being used for instruction at Hilliard Bradley High School near Columbus, Ohio. It involves a minor who rejects her faith and engages in sexual activities.

"The graphic material that has come to surface this time is in Ohio, but the bottom line on this is that this material is in virtually every public school in one form or another all over the country," says Baer. "For too long, Christians have thought when they've seen these types of stories, Oh, I can't believe that's happening in Columbus, Ohio, or California, or Massachusetts, and the wake-up call the church needs to have is this is happening in your backyard, too -- even your safe, rural community that you think is beet red and very conservative."

He says this material is everywhere, but no one wants to be serious about the size and scope of the problem.

Though Hilliard Bradley High School does offer an opt-out, Baer calls that option a "Band-Aid" and says parents need to do more.
