Obviously she does care about who influences her kids...that's why she wrote a letter to the Reporter to address this concern. Don't you think it is up to the parents to tell these stories, not some stranger on the street? If you were in San Francisco you might hear these same stories (or more likely Revelations) being told by some crazy, homeless person on the street corner. Would that be okay with you as long as it was a Christian story he was telling? I'm betting you'd steer your kids away from him. Besides, why is it that humans, the smartest creatures on earth, the chosen ones, need a book to tell us how to live and behave and treat each other?<quoted text>
It's a sad world we're living in when your basic kids have never even heard the Bible stories such as Noah's Ark, Daniel in the Lion's Den, David and Goliath, and Jesus rising from the tomb.
The mom who shuns the Bible probably doesn't care what else her kids read and who else influences them. I bet kids who belong to gangs have moms like this one.
And again, would you be so open minded if someone was passing out literature on Buddhism, Paganism, Atheism, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Agnosticism, etc.? Or would you like to be the one to influence your own children on what they believe in, at least until they are old enough to decide for themselves?
As far as the comment from someone else about the KKK passing out literature, that would be part of the fear, if you allow one group to preach to our children then you have to allow all of them, by law.
