Divorce, fatherless children and abuse: a broken family makes our children vulnerable to victimization.
A recent CBS News 13 report shows young girls are desperate for love and come from broken households, often made up of CPS kids, the foster care system or runaways.
“…after years in foster care, I didn’t think anyone would want to take care of me unless they were paid. So, when my pimp expected me to make money to support ‘the family’, it made sense to me.” 5
“The pimp becomes the new father figure,” an undercover Sacramento police officer said. Don’t you think it’s time we come together to help the Family?

They said love was free in the ’60’s but now we’re bankrupt in purity, intimacy and fidelity. The breakdown of sexual integrity destroys marriages, which breaks the family leading to children with an orphaned heart vulnerable to sexual predators. Our identity has been distorted from a sexualized culture where women are objectified and men become slaves to pleasure. XXX Church reports that:
Pornography is addictive, fueling the human trafficking blight on our society.
“Pornography is an endogenously processed poly drug providing intense although misleading, sensory rewards… analogous to the rush attained using various street drugs.” 1
Don’t you think it’s time we unite to declare freedom to those in addiction, hope for the hopeless and healing for the abused?
