Well, there goes every piece of literature.   What would you like me to teach?  I know I will just teach the Bible...oh yeah wait, can't do is about various stories of rape, incest, murder, and a guy being nailed to a cross.  Big nightmares there.

On the fair side, I would be willing to do this if every parent will stop having their child watch the Simpsons, Family Guy, stop buying every violent video game, Grand Theft Auto(did you know there are missions to get a stripper into bed with you and to make it rain?), and stop allowing them to go to any movie....because even Disney is too sensitive....Bambi's mother dies...
