Is this ok?

I saw on the news that a family homeschools their boys and has them take paparazzi pictures. The kids want to take the pictures to be close to the stars, girls and make money. (The dad drives them around in his Porshe). They "do school" two days a week. In one breathe I want to say it's good. The boys are learning business. But they aren't, are they? They are learning that money and these famous people are what the world revolves around and to me, they are feeding the beast. And the parents, are enjoying the money as well. I don't know, I have mixed feelings on this.

Then another family homeschools their twin boys and has them engulfed in skateboarding. The boys skate all day every day just about and they have 78 skateboards given to them from manufacturers. I guess if their board gets old, they can just call the manufacturer for a new one and they just ship it off to them. And they make money every time they get media attention.

I see this as exploitation of your kids. It seems wrong to me. You can't tell me that those kids know the capitals of the states, the Bill of Rights (maybe to keep them from being arrested in the case of the papparazzi kids) or Algebra...Don't get me wrong, I think that this would be ok as long as the kids put their school first. Esspecially with the skateboarders. But they won't always be champion skateboarders. I suppose with the papparazzi kids, there'll always be "stars" and as the nation falls deeper and deeper into sin, the people will just want more dirt on those stars to make themselves feel better about their empty life without Christ. Sad world we live in...

The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Subsequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some other symptoms include:
1. Loss of direction

2. Foul vocal emissions

3. Amnesia of origin

4. Lack of peace and joy

5. Selfish or violent behavior

6. Depression or confusion in the mental Component

7. Fearfulness

8. Idolatry

9. Rebellion

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required.

The number to call for repair in all areas is:

Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:
1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self control

Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Believers' Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility.

Thank you for your attention!

Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by "kneemail".
