To Clarify A Point

My friends at Century Of The Common Iowan [1] have pointed out that I made a statement that wasn’t very clear.  Sometimes I assume people know what I’m talking about, and this is a case where that was a really bad assumption.

In talking about the Briston Palin controversy, I had said:

It’s unfortunate that the society that has been largely built over the last 50 years on the social philosophy of the extreme Left makes it so difficult for parents to keep their children from engaging in activities that lead to pregnancy.

You’re right, I led with my thoughts but not with a clear explanation of how I got there.  I really have got to do better.

Anyhow, here’s a reply I left at Century Of The Common Iowa:

Sorry the statement in my post was a unclear.  The problem is, society has been gradually promoting a model of promiscuity, pushing sexuality in entertainment, teaching children about their sexuality at an earlier and earlier age, and encouraging their engagement in sexual activities by providing condoms and abortion “services” through the schools.  Granted, parents have a responsibility to raise and teach their children their moral values (including abstinence), but it is increasingly difficult as society and the schools contradict what they are teaching… it is often like trying to stand firm in the face of a tidal wave.

I really hope that clears things up.  To everyone, please don’t hesitate to let me know when my message is cloudy like this!
