New York Post, by Joshua Q. Nelson: An 11-year-old in Maine spoke out against “pornographic” content in his middle school and wants the administrators to be prosecuted.
Knox Zajac, an 11-year-old sixth-grader, spoke up at a school board meeting last week to read aloud from the book “Nick and Charlie” that he had checked out of his school’s library. The age advisory in this book is 14 years and older.
“Nick and Charlie,” written by Alice Oseman, begins with two early teen boys stealing wine from their parents and proceeding to experiment sexually with one another.
“This book was on the stand. I would like to read you a page,” Knox said at the school board meeting, according to a video posted in the Maine Wire.
Knox proceeded to read, “My back over my hips. I asked if he should take his clothes off. He was saying yes before I finished my sentence. He’s pulling off my T-shirt, laughing when I can’t undo his shirt buttons. He’s undoing my belt. I’m reaching into his bedside drawer for a condom.”
Knox read more of the sexually explicit material in the book.
“When I rented it out and showed my dad it, the librarian asked if I wanted more and if I wanted a graphic novel version,” Knox said.
Knox’s father, Adam, spoke up to address the Board of Windham Raymond School District, also known as RSU-14.
Adam proceeded to blast the book “Gender Queer,” which also shows sexually explicit depictions of two minors. The age advisory in the book is for readers 18 years and older.
“This is bulls–t,” he said.
“We do not need to be having literature that is showing boys how to s–k d–k … you may think the schools know what’s best for our children. You know who knows best for our children? The parents.”
Fox News Digital reached out to RSU-14 for a comment but did not immediately get a response.
State and federal law prohibit the possession or distribution of pornographic material involving children.
“A terrible picture of the condition of the world has been presented before me. Immorality abounds everywhere. Licentiousness is the special sin of this age. Never did vice lift its deformed head with such boldness as now. The people seem to be benumbed, and the lovers of virtue and true goodness are nearly discouraged by its boldness, strength, and prevalence. The iniquity which abounds is not merely confined to the unbeliever and the scoffer. Would that this were the case, but it is not. Many men and women who profess the religion of Christ are guilty. Even some who profess to be looking for His appearing are no more prepared for that event than Satan himself. They are not cleansing themselves from all pollution. They have so long served their lust that it is natural for their thoughts to be impure and their imaginations corrupt. It is as impossible to cause their minds to dwell upon pure and holy things as it would be to turn the course of Niagara and send its waters pouring up the falls…. Every Christian will have to learn to restrain his passions and be controlled by principle. Unless he does this, he is unworthy of the Christian name.” Adventist Home, page 328.1.

One problem is that many times parents don’t know what’s best for their children because they are only minimally involved in their children’s 1 pllives. This week I read a “news” article about a bill they were trying to pass, and please forgive me if I use the wrong terms or words as I try to avoid politics as much as possible, it had to do with requiring schools to notify parents if their child was “trans”. Are.parents so out of touch with their children that they need to have virtual strangers tell them if their boy thinks he’s a girl or vice versa? In America especially many, I’m guessing around 50% of “parents” accept “trans” ideology if not flat out encourage it. This is The Great Controversy played out in front of us. Clearly the devil has his followers. We must do our part and reach as many people as possible with the Truth, with the 3 angels messages. Time is short. God has been longsuffering and merciful but this world is destroying itself quickly and we need to act now.

May God have mercy! I’m so glad that there are still those who will speak out against such great wickedness. This makes homeschool more and more appealing, it’s really the best way to protect our children.
