Remember the Children

Please.

 And please don't sympathize with disgraced Paterno..."After turning a blind eye to the alleged victims, the face of Penn State deserves the shame." - Ian O'Conner ESPNNewYork.com


Dr. Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary says Penn State scandal holds a lesson for Southern Baptists (story in The Associated Baptist Press with my response). I would hope so.

When you see a crime, you call the police. You don’t go to your boss or employer. When you suspect child abuse, call the police. Going to your boss, employer, church, or other institution, etc., to make a report, does not protect kids. Criminal behavior requires a criminal investigation by law enforcement.

Predators need secrecy and protection to do harm. The light of truth and knowledge is our greatest tool in protecting kids. A child's life is never of lesser value than an institution and the power and prestige its name holds. Act accordingly.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. - Edmund Burke
