There is a lot of sour fruit out there.
Womanhood is under attack in today's culture. Very few Christians would disagree with that. Our ladies are subject to attacks from many directions at a young age. Television shows, political and social movements, nonprofits, the government school system, and many other institutions of modern society work hard to devalue women, turning them into empty, sexual objects.
The assault reaches its highest intensity during a young lady's teen years.
All of us who have worked to raise pure girls know of the struggle. No matter how hard you work to lay a good foundation, that foundation is constantly being undermined by friends, family, media, and often even other Christians.

[ChristianNews.net] Ottawa, Ontario – The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that Biblical speech opposing homosexual behavior, including in written form, is essentially a hate crime.
On Wednesday, the court upheld the conviction of activist William Whatcott, who found himself in hot water after distributing flyers regarding the Bible’s prohibitions against homosexuality throughout the Saskatoon and Regina neighborhoods in 2001 and 2002. The 7-judge panel consisted of Justices Beverly McLachlin, Louis LeBel, Marie Deschamps, Morris Fish, Rosalie Abellia, Marshall Rothstein and Thomas Cromwell.
“The Bible is clear that homosexuality is an abomination,” one flyer that was found to be in violation stated, citing 1 Corinthians 6:9. “Scripture records that Sodom and Gomorrah was given over completely to homosexual perversion and as a result destroyed by God’s wrath.”

[The Trumpet Online] Pastor Joey Faust and Ramon Marroquin were represented by attorney Shelby Sharpe (May 14, 2013), in Tarrant Country Criminal Court (Fort Worth, Texas), in affiliation with the Rutherford Institute. He is known for the landmark Texas case affirming the right to homeschool.
Faust and Marroquin were charged with interfering with police duties for crossing a police “scrimmage” line at a 2012, Fort Worth Gay Pride parade.
The police were permitting other citizens to cross the street, but members of Kingdom Baptist were prohibited from continuing down the sidewalk. Faust and Marroquin disobeyed police orders and crossed the street because they did not believe the police had the Constitutional right to prohibit them, while allowing other Christians, etc., to cross.
