High School Sexting Scandal
A Colorado high school is being investigated by police for a massive sexting scandal after several hundred indecent images of students were found on cell phones. George Welsh, Superintendent of Schools in the Canon City School District south of Denver, said, “There isn’t a school in the United States probably at this point that hasn’t at some point dealt with the issue of sexting” (“Sexting Scandal,” CNN, Nov. 7, 2015). He is identifying a moral plague, but the authorities only address its symptoms. The root issue is the promotion of moral license at every level of society, particularly by the entertainment industry. It is impossible to effectually deal with sexting without putting moral controls on such things as music, television, movies, social media, and video games. At a deeper level, the issue is the lack of moral authority in a society that is still to a large degree “Christian,” and this is a problem that points to the apostasy and compromise in America’s pulpits. America doesn’t fear God because the fear of God is not preached from most of its pulpits. It was the lack of the fear of God and the spiritual powerlessness of America’s churches that allowed the public schools to be taken over by the godless.
