Raising Boys: Routine Panic - Part 2

Save The Children

The James Dobson Family Institute is deeply concerned about the "sexualizing" of America's children. We consistently stand with parents who want to keep graphic sexual material away from their young children. We have warned against the growing cultural trends in entertainment and advertising that portray kids as sexual objects.

Thankfully, there is a growing effort to protect America's children with stronger laws. The latest example is in Florida, where Republican legislators have just introduced HB 1135, a one-page bill that would make it a second-degree felony for any adult to engage in "lewd or lascivious grooming" of a minor child. The bill describes that conduct as the act of "preparing or encouraging a child to engage in sexual activity through overtly sexually themed communications with the child or in conduct with or observed by the child without permission from the child's parent or legal guardian."

The bill has real teeth. Under Florida law, second-degree felonies are punishable for up to 15 years in prison. Repeat offenders could receive 30-year sentences. If HB 1135 passes, Governor Ron DeSantis' office has already signaled that he will sign it.

Of course, after the bill's introduction there was an immediate pushback. Even though the legislation does not make a distinction between heterosexual grooming or homosexual grooming, the LGBTQ+ lobby is already calling it a "threat" to their "community."

One transgender writer, Erin Reed, in the Los Angeles Blade claimed that the word "grooming" is a hidden slur against LGBTQ+ people. He incredibly went on to compare conservative supporters of the legislation to Nazis.

The backlash is revealing and ridiculous. Parents don't want their children "groomed" by heterosexual adults or anyone identifying as an LGBTQ+ individual. They don't want their children groomed period! Congratulations to the Florida legislators who introduced these new protections.

Biden's War on Women

The Biden administration hopes the abortion issue will lead to his re-election in November. Women voters may want to think twice, however. Late last Friday, the administration declared war on women by distorting and destroying Title IX, a landmark 1972 law that bans sex discrimination in any school that receives federal funding. Title IX guarantees equal treatment for women in every aspect of education from the classroom to sports. Feminists hailed its passage 52 years ago, but the law may have a fatal omission that the Biden administration just drove a truckload of "wokeness" through: It didn't define what a woman is.

Religious Left Smears Christian Conservatives

As we have repeatedly warned, there is a deliberate effort to intimidate, shame, smear, and even threaten conservative Christians out of the political and public policy arena. It is understandable that the radical, secular Left would want to do that. But it is outrageous that some so-called "progressive Christians" are lending their support to this effort.

Stand With Israel

We thank God that the April 13th missile and drone attack on Israel, by the Islamic Republic of Iran, failed. Many of the 300 missiles and drones were destroyed by Israel's Iron Dome defense system or by U.S. and Israeli jets. But the failure of the attack does not erase its significance. For the first time, Iran has launched an attack directly from its own territory on Israel, instead of using its proxies, including Hamas and Hezbollah.
