"The largest consumers of Internet pornography are children between the ages of 12-17. More than half of boys and a third of girls have seen pornography before their teenage years. 35% of young teenage boys (13-14 years old) say that they have seen pornography "more times that I can count." By the age of 18, more than 9 out of 10 boys, and 6 out of 10 girls have seen pornography online." (Virtus article "Pornography Consuming our Children" by Luke Gilkerson)
The impurity and filth spread by today's media and entertainment industry is devouring our children. Jesus said, "Woe to him who scandalizes one of these little ones who believes in me." One way of giving scandal is to be aware of an horrific and public evil and yet say or do nothing about it. When we give our children monitored and unrestricted access to the TV, to internet, to games, to movies, we are being a real stumbling block and cause of sin in our kids.
This has to stop. We have to take a tougher, more protective and more loving approach to the media and the internet with our kids.
This homily will tell you how to help protect your children from these evils.
