Once again, a scientific study has found an apparent connection between the type of music teenagers listen to and the age at which they begin to have sex.
The new study, conducted by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh, found that 44.6% of those exposed to the most sexually explicit, most "degrading" lyrics had engaged in pre-marital sex, but that only 20.6% of those exposed to the least explicit lyrics had engaged in such immoral promiscuity.
Overall, 31% of the 711 teenagers age 15 to 16 had had intercourse.
Thus, by not protecting your teenager from explicit sexual lyrics, you double your child's chances of winding up with a sexually transmitted disease or an out-of-wedlock child.
"These lyrics frequently portray aggressive m...
A team of researchers from Child Trends, a nonpartisan research center, reports, "Family structure clearly matters for children, and the family structure that helps children the most is a family headed by two biological parents in a low-conflict marriage."
This, and many other studies, refute the contention by homosexual activists, liberals and some "moderates" that homosexuality has no negative effects on society, families or children.
Please don't buy the media's lies and misinformation about homosexuality, same-sex marriage and adoption!

Clint Eastwood, director of the MOVIEGUIDE® Award-winning movies GRAN TORINO and CHANGELING, doesn't like political correctness.
He said people live in fear of being labeled a racist for telling ethic jokes or jokes about nationality.
"People have lost their sense of humor," Eastwood said. "In former times we constantly made jokes about different races. You can only tell them today with one hand over your mouth. Otherwise, you will be insulted as a racist. I find that ridiculous.
"I don't want to be politically correct. We're all spending too much time and energy trying to be politically correct about everything."
MOVIEGUIDE® also notes that, by bandying the word "racist" around so much, the term tends to lose its meaning when it real...
The British government is putting out a leaflet telling parents to avoid convincing their teenage children about the immorality of pre-marital sex.
"Trying to convince them of what's right and wrong may discourage them from being open," the leaflet, titled "Talking to Your Teenager About Sex and Relationships," says. Instead, your child should be encouraged to "form their own views."
Never mind all the sexually transmitted diseases that come with pre-marital sex, including the deadly AIDS virus spread by homosexual activities.

MOVIEGUIDE®, through its sister organization, The Christian Film & Television Commission®, has filed a complaint with the Motion Picture Association of America about the R rating for the movie ‘Watchmen,' which opens tonight after midnight.
"This movie contains extreme violence, nudity, and sex, including rape" said Dr. Ted Baehr, chairman and spokesmen of the Commission. "Throughout most of the whole picture, one male character walks around completely naked, with his private parts waving in the breeze.
"This kind of content used to be rated X or NC-17," Dr. Baehr added. "The motion picture industry keeps changing its standards. No wonder the MPAA's rating system confuses parents."
Dr. Baehr said, "The MPAA office told us ...
A study in the United Kingdom overseas has found that teenagers are spending an average of 31 hours weekly on the Internet.
The study by www.cybersentinel.co.uk found that about 3.5 of those hours are spent communicating with friends and about two hours on YouTube and in chat rooms. Also, just over one hour is devoted to looking at cosmetic surgery procedures, including breast enlargements and collagen implants. Another 1.5 hours are spent on pregnancy and "family planning sites, and about one hour and 35 minutes investigating weight loss and diets. Finally, at least three hours are spent online each week working on homework.
One quarter, or 25%, of the 1,000 teenagers polled said they regularly speak to strangers online but think it is h...
The Brazilian government has decided to force 92% of its citizens to change their views that "God made men and women with different sexes so that they could fulfill their role and have children."
The new plan, which will be launched in May, is expected to attack heterosexual families as "homophobic," label all criticism of homosexual behavior as "criminal," and forcibly "re-educate" (i.e., brainwash) the public.
The plan's title? The "National Plan for the Promotion of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered Citizens."

Frank Wright, president of the National Religious Broadcasters, warned at the recent NRB Convention in Nashville that new proposed laws and regulations in Congress and President Obama's administration could be used against Christian broadcasters and preachers who label homosexuality a sin, who say that Jesus is the only way to God, or who don't provide anti-Christian "balance" on their radio programs.
Hate crimes legislation protecting "sexual orientation and gender identity" was introduced in January in Congress.
Also, President Obama's top advisor, David Axelrod, from Chicago, recently admitted to Fox News, that Obama and his new FCC commissioner may indeed consider supporting the application of a "Fairness Doctrine" against talk radio....
Many people, especially the elderly and those who have "atypical" conditions or who need experimental treatments, will be denied medical care under the "stimulus" bill signed by President Obama on February 17, according to healthcare expert Betsy McCaughey, chairman of the Committee to Reduce Infection Deaths, constitutional scholar and former Lieutenant Governor of New York (1995-1998).
The bill slows the development and use of new medications and technologies because they drive up costs. It also encourages elderly patients to forego treatment of many conditions that come with old age.
The provisions are similar to former regulations in the United Kingdom where it took nearly three years of protests to do away with a rule that said elder...
