How Our Kids Perceive Beauty In The Modern World

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but what if your young daughter is the beholder and she’s being manipulated by clever, yet misleading, advertisements to form her perception?

Media Owned by the Big 6: GE, Disney, CBS, Viacom, Time Warner,  & News Corp.

False Security in Diversity
As you flip through 3000 channels, listen to numerous radio stations, and cruise around the Internet – you may be thinking how great it is to have access to so many different ideas and shows. But the truth is that through years of mergers and acquisitions, very few media corporations control most of all that we see, hear, and take in giving them vast control over our culture and the way we view the world.

You’re Teaching My Child What? – Dr. Miriam Grossman

“The sex-ed lobby has always claimed it was all about health—teaching kids how to stay safe. But in reality, their goal was not preventing disease, pregnancy, and emotional distress. It’s about indoctrinating them into a radical ideology—sexual freedom….

What’s the result of this teaching? One in four American girls now has a sexually transmitted disease.” – Breakpoint

Euthanasia: Naturalism vs the Sanctity of Life

I had planned to sleep in a bit. Then I heard over the air-waves, someone speaking of a plane crashing into a building. For a second I thought I must have misheard. Planes being run into buildings? That’s crazy…

…the burning tower, the people screaming, the people crying. It was as if the world stopped. Are the people out? What about those on the top floors? What in the world happened?
