More on prayer for Connecticut's youth...

Watertown police have arrested seven men in the Waterbury for allegedly assaulting a 15-year-old boy. Among those arrested were a former police lieutenant, a prominent businessman, and a judicial marshal.

In Stratford there is an uproar over an alleged sexual assault by one boy on another in a public school. Sadly, there's almost no shock value to these stories any more - except that in this case both boys were only 6 years old! Christine from The Thinking Mother blog has more on this.

Kids need to be protected - and the only way to do that is to root out of society the things that are influencing people, particularly men, to act out these behaviors.

Is anyone going to step up to the plate and begin to explain in loud detail the facts about what repeated exposure to pornography does to people's minds and brain chemistry? It is imperative that we begin to address obscenity at the roots at the problem.

Thank you for spreading the word on the Stratford incident.

Prayers are needed for society in general and also for the children in Stratford, both the victims and the six year old boy accused of doing the assault.

Hi Christine, yes and amen! We have exposed the children of our society to things that, not too long ago, most folks had never heard of...
