Young Women's Christian Association – a Lie from the Pit of Hell

Young Women's Christian Association – a Lie from the Pit of Hell
By Flip Benham

Reading this press release today “When I get mad I draw,”(see below) almost made me physically ill.  This is the whisper from the devil himself.  Here is the YWCA trying to make kids good without God.  It cannot be done!

The YWCA is sponsoring a “Week without Violence” campaign October 15-21, 2006, to help parents, caregivers, and teachers to engage their children in discussions as to how to better deal with anger and cope with violence.

What utter nonsense!

If you haven't already heard, the YWCA doesn't have a lot to do with young Christian women any more.  The women running the YWCA are neither young, Christian, or women.  They are old, they hate the God of the Bible (though God's Name is often on their lips), and are engulfed in “multicultural” lesbianism.

There is nothing more violent that could be done to our children than to remove the fear of God from them.  Yet, the YWCA has effectively done this very thing and is now telling all of us that it has found a better way, “Let's draw!” 

When the God is removed from the hearts of our kids, violence will always fill the void (Genesis 6:11).   Why all of the violence in our schools?  It is a sign and a judgment from God Himself that we have cast Him behind our backs.  Educating our kids to draw when they get mad will prove of little help in controlling the unbridled passions of the sinful flesh.

The schools of our land have become veritable breeding grounds for violence.  They are jungles where rape, assault, theft, and murder are common place.  The public school in America has become the most dangerous place for a young person to be.  But what should we expect? 

God has been expelled from school and banished from the schoolyard.  He has been replaced with metal detectors, drugs, gun free zones (what a joke), condoms, and violence of unprecedented order.  For the YWCA to present itself as a cure for the violence that is savaging our children is like Osama Bin Laden coming to the aid of Israel .  Please!

Jesus is the only solution God has given us for sin.  Sin is at the root of the violence that is plaguing the public schools in our nation.  Until Jesus is invited back into the public school, Ten Commandments and all, there is no hope that peace will return to the hallways of our classrooms.  This is something the YWCA has overlooked, on purpose!

“My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.  ‘Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as My priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I will also ignore your children.'”  Hosea 4:6  



Responding to School Violence: YWCA's 'When I Get Mad I Draw' Kids' Art Contest Expanded Nationwide

Signature Feature of YWCA USA's Week Without Violence Initiative

WASHINGTON, Oct. 10 /Christian Newswire/ -- In response to the recent tragedies involving school violence, the Young Women's Christian Association USA is encouraging individuals and families to explore positive ways of expressing angry feelings. “What better place to start than with teaching our own children how to better deal with their emotions?” asked Lorraine Cole, Ph.D. and CEO of the YWCA USA. “The recent shootings are a horrific reminder of the violence that we face in our society far too often.” The YWCA USA has decided to expand the YWCA “When I Get Mad I Draw” art contest nationally to give children an opportunity to show how they express their feelings of anger. A signature feature of the annual YWCA's Week Without Violence campaign (October 15-21, 2006), the art contest sponsored by TiVo KidZone is open to children between the ages of 3 and 16.

Parents, caregivers, and teachers are encouraged to engage children in a discussion about ways to deal with anger and how to cope with violence. Kids are invited to draw and use their creativity to express their emotions. The YWCA will honor twelve of the young artists that participate by selecting three finalists from each of the following age categories: 3- 6 years old, 7-10 years, 11-13 years and 14-16 years. TiVo Inc. will provide the winners with prizes including a free TiVo and free service, among others. All entries must be postmarked by October 21, 2006.

The YWCA USA also encourages parents, caregivers and teachers to review the YWCA Week Without Violence parenting tips on helping children learn to develop self-control and to handle their angry feelings. Go to www.ywca.org and click on YWCA Week Without Violence.

The YWCA is the oldest and largest multicultural women's organization in the world with more than 25 million members in 122 countries, including 2.6 million members and participants in 300 local associations in the United States . The YWCA Week Without Violence is also the launch of a YWCA relationship with TiVo Inc., the creator and a leader in television services for digital video recorders, to support the nonprofit organization's work at more than 1,300 locations.

As part of the week-long observance, the YWCA will help educate parents and caregivers about the new TiVo KidZone service feature which enables parents to ensure that their children are watching programs they have pre-approved on live or recorded TV. It creates an exclusive area within the TiVo service for children to enjoy these selections, while hiding all other content from view. Children will benefit from higher-quality programming choices, and parents will never be surprised by what their children are watching. TiVo KidZone is included at no additional cost as part of the standard TiVo service and is available for new and existing subscribers. With TiVo KidZone, parents can find quality children's television shows recommended by expert nonprofit child advocacy groups. TiVo is making these recommendations available to everyone, regardless if they are subscribers, via their website: www.tivo.com/kidzone.

“TiVo KidZone is an innovative and easy to use tool to help parents and caregivers cope in an era of excessively violent programming” said Cole. Adding, “While we can't stop all violence, parents can control their children's access to media in their homes and find quality educational video content suitable for their families.”
