Few Christian and conservative media outlets have been warning about this for years. Young people today are more anxious and depressed – some even suicidal – than any other generation in our history. The studies and statistics do not lie, so now is it finally time to confront these issues head-on? Maybe.
We have known for decades that godless agendas have been infesting public schools across America including Atheism, Humanism, socialism, and LGBT indoctrination. But what is affecting children the most when it comes to depression and mental health, these agendas or their i Phones, friends, and social media? We believe it is all of these, and other factors.
Today we discuss the ongoing moral decline in culture due to the massive influence of Hollywood, government schools, media, and technology. The main culprit being within a child and parent’s control: use of iPhones and social meda. We share a shocking study of how depression and suicidal thoughts among young people is off the charts as our education system continues confusing them about life, morality, gender, and sexuality.
Mission America’s Linda Harvey writes:
If two middle school girls “date,” that’s normal – didn’t you know? Boys in girls’ restrooms, locker rooms and showers is also a “right” and anyone who objects is a racist.
“But bathroom privacy has nothing to do with race,” you logically reply. And that’s when understanding dawns. The “LGBTQ” agenda that’s being sold to children via deviant, negligent, or cowardly schools is all about concocting mindless myths.
It’s pure propaganda with no basis in fact or logic, so why do it? Because it’s the avenue for fostering sexual permissiveness as a societal change agent using children as guinea pigs. Cooperative public schools are the sites of this corruption. If we look at how the left behaves, there is no god in America today but sexual sin. And the “LGBTQ” movement is its prophet.
Among the most notable statistics documented are that the suicide rate among 18- to 19-year-olds has increased 56 percent in the years 2008 to 2017. In that same span of time, anxiety and hopelessness among 18- to 25-year-olds has risen 71 percent. Depression among 20- and 21-year-olds has more than doubled from 2009 to 2017. Among 16- and 17-year-olds depression grew 69 percent.
The mental health issues were particularly dire for young women and girls. By 2017, the data reveals that approximately 20 percent of 12- to 17-year-old girls had experienced “major depression” in the previous year.
The president of the National Education Association and a man who identifies as a woman recently teamed up to teach kindergartners transgender ideology.
It was “Read Across America Day” on March 4, and NEA president Lily Eskelsen García and transgender Sarah MacBride of the Human Rights Campaign read the kindergartners’ books on being transgender at Ashlawn Elementary School in Arlington, Virginia. The books were I Am Jazz and Julián Is a Mermaid. According to Breitbart.com, the teacher in that Ashlawn kindergarten classroom is Jaim Foster – “a gay man who lobbies for LGBTQ causes.”
