Most parents are concerned about how their small children will face a contemporary world. We are especially worried when we see how the "innocent" is often sacrificed to promote some contemporary theory. Will our children stand strong? Will that handsome son stay true to his Christian beliefs? Will our daughter be bullied into denying her faith?
Last week Christian parents all across the country were given an object lesson for their children. Miss California, Carrie Prejean was viciously attacked for an answer to a question during the Miss USA pageant.
The blogosphere has been full of hate about her answers. She's been interviewed on most of the bigger stations. Through it all she has remained kind, understanding and courageous.
Be good to your children by discussing this issue with them. Point out that you can be classy and still stand for your beliefs. Help them to understand that she made a choice for her faith and that God will take care of her.
And if you have time, please go to this blog http://www.welovecarrieprejean.blogspot.com/ and leave a "positive" comment to help counteract the hateful posts on the Internet. All comments will be moderated and only "positive" ones will be posted.
Carrie has been informed about this blog. Our goal is to have one million positive comments. If your comments are longer, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org so it can be included as a post.
