In the Book of Proverbs, it is written, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). Yet, as we cast our gaze upon the world today, we find a sharp deviation from this wisdom, an alarming departure from the traditional tenets of morality and the sanctity of childhood. We have become witness to a society that insists on immersing even its youngest in its fervent pursuit of rampant hedonism and societal self-indulgence.
We should remember the words of our Lord, Jesus Christ: “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these” (Mark 10:14). Childhood is a sacred time of innocence and discovery, a time to be cherished, nurtured, and guided with the wisdom of our forebears and the teachings of Scripture. Instead, parents are decking their children out in homosexual pride attire and grooming them to become the world’s next foot soldiers in the war against morality.
One cannot but help bemoan the current state of affairs when one sees major retailers like Target engaging in such behaviors. They have introduced a new line of clothing under the banner of Pride Kids’ & Baby Clothing, offering items such as the Pride Baby Bien Proud Bodysuit, Pride Baby ‘Be Kind’ Jumper Romper, and Pride Baby ‘Always Proud’ Bibs for infants. Older children are not spared either, with products like the Pride Kids’ ‘Be You’ One Piece Swimsuit, Pride Toddler Sleeveless Romper, and Pride Kids’ Sleeveless A-Line Dress.
The innocence of childhood, once cherished and protected, now finds itself entangled in complex issues of identity, sexuality, and societal norms, topics too mature for their young minds. How did we get here? The world has turned its back on God completely. This is the kind of garbage below that Target is targeting children with (no pun intended).
