Jennifer Hartline Has a Tiger By the Tail

This Tiger We Can Support

This morning because of a visit to one of my favourite priest's blogs, I came across something I had missed from a young Catholic mother and writer that has won my respect for her truthfulness and strong faith. I really enjoy reading her own blog, which did not carry this item, but found it here at Catholic Online where she writes for broader public consumption.
The following letter was written by the mother of three children to the President of the United States:

An open letter to Mr. Obama

I will no longer address you as Mr. President because you are simply not fit to lead anyone. What I have learned today is the very last straw. You are no longer to be afforded the benefit of the doubt in anything, and frankly, I feel foolish for ever being inclined to do so.

We have endured a great deal from you in one short year, and it is simply too much to bear any longer. You are clearly bent on taking our country down a road of unabashed immorality and debauchery no matter what the people think or say to the contrary. It is time for our elected leaders to take a bold initiative and stop you from doing any further damage.

You have filled your administration with people who hold the most outrageous, insane, and frightening views on everything from our climate to our animals and worst of all, the sexuality of our children. You plainly gravitate toward these radical sorts who have a view of America and the world that I and many other will simply never tolerate. Your intentions have been revealed, and they are divisive and destructive. You are a liar and a moral coward. I am ashamed to think my honorable husband would have to salute you.

Do not attempt to distance yourself from the views of Van Jones, Cass Sunstein, and John Holdren. You don’t get a pass anymore. The buck stops with you. If you appointed them, then you believe what they believe. If you think they’re off-base and you disagree with them, then you shouldn’t hire them to do your laundry, let alone fill a cabinet-level position. If they’re on your team, then you’re okay with everything they’ve said and published – period. You’re the one who wanted the job, so stop crying about being unfairly aligned with crazy radical views.

Quite possibly the worst of all is Kevin Jennings, your so-called Safe Schools Czar. That you have given this man the task of making our public schools “safe” for students to learn is stunning. Jennings has a view of “health” and “safety” for our kids that is shockingly corrupt and devoid of morality, and clearly so do you since you gave him the job.

I am unutterably sick to death of the hyper-sexualization of our children in this culture, and I will not silently allow you and Jennings to further this twisted agenda in our school system under the banner of tolerance and equality. How dare you use the power of your office to pollute my children’s futures with rampant, forced, immoral sexual indoctrination!

I read through as much as I could stand of Jennings’ list of “safe reading” for our school children beginning in kindergarten all the way through 12th grade. I saw some of the illustrations in these recommended books and I was glad I had an empty stomach. What I read and saw was revolting and pornographic. This filth is what your czar wants our children to read in order to foster understanding, tolerance, and create a safe environment for learning? Bullshit. This putrid smut has one purpose only and that is to break down a child’s moral center and make them slaves to selfish, destructive, immoral, and deadly sexual behavior.

Your intentions have been revealed, Mr. Obama. You are no friend of parents in this country and you are in fact a danger to our children. If you want to denounce this disgusting “safe reading” list then fire Jennings immediately. Otherwise, you are complicit in endorsing this repugnant garbage and the end result it seeks to achieve. Stop destroying the innocence of our children with this obsession with unrestrained, immoral sex.

As a parent and voter, I demand that Jennings be removed from his position today, and I demand that my Congressman and Senators take action to require his removal. As far as I’m concerned, you should be removed from office as well. You are a disgrace to our nation. You have proven your motives to be far worse than even I imagined a year ago. I thought, I hoped, that you would prove to be reasonable and show a modicum of moral restraint. That is not the case, and you must not be allowed to drag this nation into an abyss of sexual depravity masquerading as tolerance.

Your sworn allegiance to Planned Parenthood and the abortion “rights” lobby is just the tip of the iceberg. It’s evident that you are determined to forcibly usher in a modern era of Sodom and Gomorrah. You think I’m wildly exaggerating things here? Then prove it by publicly condemning the trash your czar wants all our children to read. If you won’t, then I dare you to publicly defend the books that write explicitly about a group of young boys getting together to perform fellatio on each other. Defend the books that feature pictures of a man having anal sex with a boy under the caption stating how this transforms the boy into a man. Defend the books that are filled with kids asking each other if they want to f*** (yes, using that word). This isn’t being marketed to adults; it’s being peddled by coercion to our children.

No elegantly-delivered speech will save you this time. If you do not unequivocally condemn this outrageous trash and fire Jennings, then you are exactly the person I describe here and you’ll get no help from me in keeping your dirty little secret. We both know your political survival depends on parents not finding out what Jennings – and you – wants to force into our public school system.

The responsibility is yours. If you will not protect America’s kids from this kind of corruption, then you are unfit to lead this great nation, a nation founded on the truth of the authority and power of God. We do not derive our freedom from our own laws, we do not acquire our worth from our own definitions of human life, but from the God who created us out of love.

You are sliding down a dark tunnel into a blackness where God is denied, purity is destroyed and love no longer has meaning. You are free to take that terrible trip if you so choose, but don’t you dare take this country with you. I will not quietly oblige you in your efforts to erode the moral fabric of America and her children under some insane pretext of rights and equality.

If you need bedtime reading tonight, I recommend Isaiah 5:20: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”

And Romans 1:28 “Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity… they invent ways of doing evil…they are senseless, faithless, heartless and ruthless. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”

And Jeremiah 7:28: “This is the nation that has not obeyed the Lord its God or responded to correction. Truth has perished; it has vanished from their lips.”

There is no excuse, no justification for what you and Jennings are doing. Stop it immediately. I hold you responsible. Every American should hold you responsible. If I’m wrong, prove it.

As for everyone else, brace yourselves and click here to see for yourself what Kevin Jennings wants your children to read. Are you okay with this? Obama appointed him, so the buck stops with Obama. Will you remain silent?

In Canada, such a letter would still appear to be able to garner for Mrs. Hartline the punishment of the process. In her case, probably more, since she disses the man claimed by his fellow Americans to be the President of the United States of America.

Like her, I too had hopes for the man elected to fill the Presidential shoes, even though there were things that were troublesome to me as a Christian and a Catholic Christian, particularly his stand on abortion.

I find her letter disturbing as someone who loves the United States of America, and the founding principles on which they were created.

I have just now amended the posting I put up here, because it caused offense to Stephen Boissoin, in its original form, and he is someone who I believe in.

I am sorry that I offended him, but could see how he could take offense, because I did something that he charged me with in a note he sent me personally.

I put his name in the original headline of the post, because I wanted people to read what Jennifer Hartline had written. I used my friendship with Stephen for another purpose. That was dishonest of me, and I regret having done it.

I could have written the post with no reference to Stephen. In fact I just rewrote it to reflect it on its own.

I apologize to Stephen for "using" his Good name to bring notice to someone else in a way that did not honour him.
