Today’s youth culture is filled with entertainment choices which encourage promiscuity, telling young people if “you’re not ‘doing it,’ there’s something wrong with you” – a message delivered each week on “Glee” to its young audience of teens and preteens.  We’ve made the case time and time again that the Fox show, “Glee,” is unfit for family viewing.

While you might hear a sugary Justin Bieber song performed on the show, the storylines and themes are far more illicit than innocent.

With reoccurring homosexual themes and sexual situations among the teenage characters on “Glee,” this latest episode gave more of the same.  Two teen boys are in a homosexual relationship and are shown kissing.  One of these boys – still in high school – admitted he “hooked up” for sex with yet another boy, stating:  “It didn’t mean anything, it was just a hook up.  I needed someone.” 

Two bisexual/lesbian teen girls are also shown kissing multiple times, once stating:  “This is where we fell in love.”

Oh, but Glee doesn’t just promote homosexual sex among teens.  In the interest of “equal opportunity” a heterosexual teen couple is also shown in bed together.

However, that “equal treatment” doesn’t apply to Christians or conservatives.  As with the other Ryan Murphy-produced show “The New Normal” Murphy portrays one of his Glee high school characters as a Christian Republican.  Of course she is the high school “mean girl” who humiliates her unpopular classmates.  She forms a “Christian” Left Behind/Rapture club which Glee’s creator, Ryan Murphy, uses to mock Christianity and portray Christians as whack-jobs.

While millions of youth (and their parents) follow this pop culture phenomenon, it is encouraging to hear from readers that the information we provide has made an impact in their lives and their decision-making.  A couple of years ago we received this powerful account which we pulled from the archives to encourage you in your own pursuit of holiness and to urge you to be salt and light!

“I just wanted to thank you for writing the article on “Glee” … I’m a Christian & I’ve been watching that show since it debuted last year.  However, for quite awhile now I’ve been praying about if I should continue to watch it or not, & I was even wondering recently if you’d be singling out that show for readers to take “action” against.  (I considered e’g you to suggest that you tackle that show, but then I rec’d your email re: it!!)  After reading your excellent article, I felt confirmation that the Lord was indeed telling me to stop watching (i.e. supporting) it.  I then felt led to send out an email (see copy below) to all my friends re: “Glee” (& I included at the bottom your email that you sent out).  I’ve rec’d only positive responses from friends so far, thanking me for sending it out…one went so far as to say that she was going to post my email on Facebook!  So maybe that’ll help our cause.  …

“Thank you again for encouraging us Christians to “fight the good fight” & not lose hope or give up.  I appreciate all the great work you’re doing!”

In Him,

D.A.

Here are my 10 Commandments for my daughter’s potential boyfriends.

Please facebook, email and tweet this list and my accompanying new video to dads who do not want their daughters to ever date or marry Lil Wayne, Charlie Sheen, Beavis or Butthead.
Commandment I. Thou shall understand that your presence doesn’t make me happy. And know this: I’ve got a PI doing a background check on you at this moment.
Commandment II. Thou had better have a life. I have worked my butt off providing a good life for my daughter; therefore, you better have one, Spanky.
Commandment III. Thou shall not touch my daughter. If you do, I’ll smash your hands and your mommy will have to help you gel your Justin Bieber haircut.
Commandment IV. Thou shall look me in the eye and shake my hand like a man. And turn off your damn cell phone.
Commandment V. Thou shall understand that you are a boy talking to a man. Do not gush around me or attempt to read me an entry from your journal. I’m not Oprah. I am a Neanderthal.
Commandment VI. Thou shall know that our family is old school. Do not even think about approaching me with liberal, hippie, agnostic, atheistic, anti-American or tree-humping bull crap.
Commandment VII. Thou shall know that I like cool and expensive gifts. You’d be shrewd to approach me like the three wise men did Baby Jesus, namely with gold, frankincense and myrrh.
Commandment VIII. Thou shall understand that if you’re dumb enough to tell me a dirty joke, I’m comfortable enough with kicking your ass.
Commandment IX. Thou shall keep your word. If you say you’re going to do something, then I expect you to do it.
Commandment X. Thou shall memorize commandments I – IX. Yep, your best bet, home slice, is to both memorize and practice these commandments because I am Dad Almighty!
Parents, if you’d like an awesome full-color, punk-scaring poster of my 10 Commandments for Your Daughter’s Potential Boyfriends to grace your entryway, man cave or office, click here. Be afraid, scrubs. Be afraid.

In a dark corner of the internet, perverts and scumbags swap trophies of their sexual conquests of innocent children and infants. Pictures and videos of rape and incest are uploaded and discussed, like some kind of sick social club.

While it may not be surprising that such a community exists on the internet, the forum they use to exchange their disgusting memorabilia is very surprising – Facebook.

After an exposé  by Chelsea Schilling on World Net Daily (WND.com), increasing attention has been brought to the popular social site’s disturbing denizens and the ways in which Facebook deals with them.

Schilling shares the method she used to uncover what she calls “the dark underbelly of Facebook.”

 

“As part of an undercover news investigation, WND used alias Facebook profiles and located dozens of child-porn images after “friending” many likely pedophiles and predators who trade thousands of pornographic photos on the social network.

 

During the investigation, entire Facebook predator communities were easily spotted. Child pornographers use groups as meet-up points to find others with similar interests. Many of the offenders would list similar interests on their profile pages, including terms such as “Thirteen,” “Lolita,” “Justin Bieber,” “incest” and “PTHC (preteen hard-core pornography).” Their activities might include “Receiving nude pics,” and they subscribe to explicit Facebook fan pages posted in plain sight…

 

The following are actual groups and ‘likes’ currently and/or previously available to site users around the world:

 

Kidsex Young Preteen Lesbians 10-17 Teen Bisexual Incest (2,119 “likes” on April 19, 2012) PTHC (preteen hard-core pornography) 12 to 13 Boy Sex Young Gay Pics and Movie Trade Gangbanging Hot and Teen Lesbians Bl-wjob Fan Page (1,662 likes on April 20, 2012, mostly girls, some young-looking teens) Young Lesbians Teen Sex Love Little Kids”

Schilling’s WND article contains graphic descriptions of some of the images found during their investigation as well as screenshots which have been blurred to protect both the subject of the photos and the readers.

Needless to say, these images and descriptions are still disturbing and we will not be reposting them.

Facebook, then has some questions to answer. Are they aware of the problem? What are they doing to prevent it? Do they continue to look for new ways to block these materials from their site?

After the publication of Schillings article, Facebook released the following statement:

 

“Nothing is more important to Facebook than the safety of the people that use our site and this material has absolutely no place on Facebook. We have zero tolerance for child pornography being uploaded onto Facebook and are extremely aggressive in preventing and removing child exploitive content. We scan every photo that is uploaded to the site using PhotoDNA to ensure that this illicit material can’t be distributed and we report all instances of exploitative content to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. We’ve built complex technical systems that either block the creation of this content, including in private groups, or flag it for quick review by our team of investigations professionals.

 

We’ve worked with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the New York State Attorney General’s Office in the U.S., as well as the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre in the U.K., to use known databases of child exploitive material to improve our detection and bring those responsible to justice.

We feel we’ve created a much safer environment on Facebook than exists off-line, where people can share this disgusting material in the privacy of their own homes without anyone watching. However, we’re constantly refining and improving our systems and processes and building upon our relationships with NCMEC and law enforcement agencies specializing in child protection to create an even safer space.”

 

 

It’s a pretty strong statement, but the fact remains that this garbage is still on Facebook, so the company is clearly not doing enough to prevent it. Until the time comes when Facebook has purged these groups and images from its network – as difficult as that may be – the company’s efforts are unacceptable and incomplete.

It’s alarming enough that this material is present on a forum that has become a normal part of life for almost a billion users worldwide, but news from New York sheds brighter light on child pornography’s shifting place in society.

The state’s top court ruled that, under state law, the viewing of child pornography was completely legal. The five judges agreed on this point unanimously.

A piece by New York Post columnist Thomas Fleming expresses the point well.

 

“…[I]f weird and perverse pornography has to be tolerated, it is not because we tolerate everything. Quite the contrary, in the Anglo-Sphere there has never been so little toleration of dissent and so much power to impose conformity! No, we tolerate this filth because we either approve of it or cannot figure out any rational grounds on which to regulate it – so long as no-one is harmed.”

It’s just plain pitiful when a society can’t think of “rational grounds” to prevent its members from exploiting children for sexual gratification.

Add to these news pieces the rash of stories about teachers having sex with underage students, or the FBI agent busted for having child porn on his computer – this crap is not as unheard of as it used to be or should be. It’s easing its way into daily life and while it may still make most people cringe, it may not make us all cringe quite as much as it used to.

As Thomas Fleming notes in his article, “the future lies with countries like the Netherlands, where the age of consent is 16 but children of 12 may have consensual sex with anyone 16 or younger.”

It may seem unlikely now, but what’s to stop it when a culture has no moral anchor? Any perversion can and will be rationalized.

Cosmopolitan Magazine is at it again – targeting young teen girls despite its pornographic sex tips and other adult content. And model Nicole Weider wants it to end.

The March issue just hit stands and has former Disney star Selena Gomez gracing the cover next to the phrase “50 Sex Tips” in large font. While Gomez is 19, a legal adult, the magazine is likely to be picked up by her fans who are mostly tweens and teens.

The new issue has been promoted on the Dream Out Loud – Gomez’s clothing line – Facebook page. All 255,952 young fans are being urged to “get your copy.” Gomez also has 26 million Facebook fans on her own page.

Appalled, Weider wrote on her website for girls, ProjectInspired, “How many girls went and purchased the magazine because Gomez is on the cover and she, through her brand, urged them to do so? The thought of so many young women reading these sex tips is horrifying.”

Weider, an outspoken Christian, is leading a national anti-Cosmo campaign and demanding that the magazine be sold in a non-transparent wrapper to adults.

Overtly adult content in magazines requires that publications be sold in non-transparent wrappers and only to consumers who are over the age of 18. Yet Cosmo, with cover articles featuring graphic sexuality and sex tips (the March issue includes “Your orgasm guaranteed”), claims that its publication is targeted to readers who are of age.

Weider argues that the magazine is targeting a younger audience not only with its new 2012 designs such as larger font and brighter colors but also with young celebrities. Last month, Cosmo featured 17-year-old Dakota Fanning on the cover with the phrase “Too Naughty to Say Here. But You Have to Try This Sex Trick.”

Gomez, who just ended her Disney career in January, is now the new face of the adult magazine yet she has fans between the age of eight and 14 years of age. Many young girls watched her get her start on the “Wizards of Waverly Place” and are avid listeners of her music as well.

The pop star launched “Dream Out Loud” last year and claims it’s a brand for teen girls ranging from 12 to 18 years of age. Additionally, Gomez dates Justin Bieber, another teen pop sensation with an extensive fan base of young teenage girls.

Weider asks, if the magazine is not targeting an underage audience, why are teen heroines on the cover?

“Cosmopolitan Magazine is filled with graphic sexual messages. Every day we hear uncomfortable stories of parents standing in the checkout line and their children asking questions about what is written boldly across the cover,” she stated.

She said many parents aren’t even aware of the graphic content, and might buy the magazine because their young daughter is a Gomez fan. But they should know that most issues contain tips on how to perform oral sex and other sexual advice not suitable for young girls.

Weider has launched a petition and is building up a case of evidence that Cosmo is actively targeting an underage audience.

“The petition is progressing fantastically,” she told CP in an email. “Each week it receives more than 100 new signatures, and nearly 25,000 people have signed in support so far.”

Her goal for the petition, she summed: “That no one under the age of 18 sees the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine on newsstands or at their grocery stores, and that no one under 18 can legally buy Cosmopolitan magazine.”

The petition has received support from churches and ministries across the country, as well as from thousands of young girls. She told CP, “We’re currently looking into several potential partnerships to further the mission’s reach and help us achieve our goal that much faster.”
