I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

Yahoo Finally Smells Coffee

Yahoo has been one of the top pornographers on the internet. They have housed pornography sites and allowed unlimited access to them from anyone in the world regardless of age. Many of the people involved in the fight for decency have fought against Yahoo for years.

Now, finally, Yahoo has taken responsibility and begun to restrict some of the web sites housed on their server. They have finally begun to bar chat rooms that promote sex between minors and adults and restrict all chat rooms to users 18 and older. This is a simple step that they should have taken years ago. The fact that they resisited this was a money motivated morality that resisted all common sense.

The changes come under an agreement with New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer and Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning.

Among the illicit chat rooms removed were those with labels such as "girls 13 & up for much older men," "8-12 yo girls for older men," and "teen girls for older fat men." Many of these were located within the "Schools and Education" and "Teen" chat categories.

An undercover investigator, posing as a 14-year-old while visiting one of those chat rooms, received 35 personal messages of a sexual nature over a single 25-minute period, the attorneys general said.

In a word, Yahoo got busted. Now they are finally moving to the center.

I am not a socialist, but I am disgusted with corporate America. They seem to be more and more godless every day. I read today that 17 % of US corporations have written policy that they will not support any Christian organizations and fully 53 % of the corporations will not match funds in charitable giving if the group given to is Christian. Why? Is this the result of hippies of the 60's finally making chairman of the board?
