Prayer for Connecticut's Youth

Churches and individual Christians should urgently consider establishing regular prayer for the youth of our State. Every day seems to bring more and more disturbing cases of violence and abuse committed against our young people.

  • A 15-year-old girl, missing for a year, is found locked away in an Edgar Allan Poe type secret room hidden under a staircase and blocked from view in a West Hartford house.
  • Three East Hartford men were in Hartford Superior Court to face charges of various assaults. Two of the three were charged with offenses against children and two with offenses against mentally retarded persons.
  • Another man pled not guilty to charges that he was soliciting sex from an undercover officer whom he thought was a teenage girl and whom he planned to meet in Stamford.
  • A 66-year-old man is arrested in Watertown for allegedly assaulting a child.

I am incredulous over the fact that all these stories were reported in a single day, in a small State. When are we going to wake up and admit that pornography is creating a generation of dangerous predators who are totally inflamed with lust - and who are not content to merely view, but to act out what they see and think about?

When will we enforce the obscenity laws of the State and of the United States?

Enough is enough.
