First, I am disappointed. Let me

in sexual education. I didn’t think
the public school were forbidden
from teaching sex education by the

and internet, but maybe I lived a

just take responsibility, set a good
example for your kids and be a good
mentor. It’s not the churches or
being from the south that created
the problem. It is a moral problem.
Education will help, but adults need
to set the example for our youth.

Christian for our moral decay is just
wrong. Enough for being disappoint-
