I can't imagine a scenario in which the state would actually take possesion of my child.

Did Social Services just knock on their door, and explain that they would be taking custody?

Attempt to take my child from me.
See how far you get.



This isn't the first family this has happened to. Welcome to Christian America, the only place in the world where they find filth in baby nudes.


Doesn't sound like the actions of "Christian America" to me.
Sounds more like ultra-liberal feminist social workers employed by "The State".

There, see, we can all make assumptions based on our personal viewpoints.

I don't think this has anything to do with Christians and i'm sad that someone brought that into the conversation. The UK is laregly secular and i see similar problems here.

This is it, I think -- or to be more specific; little girls. I rarely ever hear of anyone taking boys for bath tub pictures, most of the cases I've ever heard about are regarding little girls.

Girls have been more vulnerable since the beginning of time.. and really, if I had a daughter, I would be FAR more cautious with her too. I am already extremely protective over my son, and that's one reason I've considered not having any more children..

Is this more of a gender thing? Have you noticed that trend too?..

I don't believe this has anything to do with Christians either. If I had to take a guess:

Walmart has a policy regarding nude pictures, and some employee saw these pictures.
Being a good little employee, he/she reported it to a supervisor,
who in turn, covered his backside and reported it to his supervisor.

This supervisor, wanting to show support for his employees, followed through by reporting this to the authorities.
After that, it's all beauracracy and political correctness.

The emphasis towards females is long known. It's like how if a male teacher abuses a 14 year old girl he is demonised, but if a female teacher has sex with a 14 year old boy then the boy is often happy about it and bragging to his friends. The slant towards females is clear. However female are often abused more than males and so the slant can be understood.

What we are talking about however is parents. For gods sake it's parents taking pictures of their children in a bathtub with no intent of passing these pictures on! I just don't understand. PArents have done this for years, literally years without any trouble, so why now?

I find the entire situation utterly confusing and as my brother is about to have children i wonder if i should warn him!

I don't like people who go on about common sense, however that is what is missing here. If i saw such photos i would just process them and pass them on. It makes me think a few things.

1) Does the person processing them have a guilty mind?
2) Was the person processing them near a woman and decided to show his sensitive side and talk about the photos?
3. Was the person processing them simply indoctrinated and thinks any photo of a child is therefore pornography?

It's all kind of confusing.

A few years ago I picked up a print of Michaelangelo's Madonna and Child at an art gallery. Baby Jesus is there in all his glory.

I am not usually in favour of suing at the drop of a hat, but in this case I wholeheartedly support the parents and hope they win. This growing trend in the US of demonizing any and all nudity is ridiculous and needs to be stopped.

when will babies be born with their clothes on ?

its funnie that we are bombarded with man nipples and female clevage 24/7 from the dumb box yet we forget that being nude is something very natural.

Everyone get your cameras out....Walmart has a lot of money.

Go for it! The only way to effect change is by participation.

Brace your self, it happens all the time. your child can be removed for absolutely no reason at all at any time.
Trust me its not christians who are doing this. in fact if you are christian you are more likely to have your child removed. Didn't you know its child abuse to take your child to church? One family in Washington found out the hard way.
I am putting together a piece to post here in the next few weeks. What you will learn will shock you.

I would give many dollars to just see pics of me, 2 years old, dancing in my crib with no diaper on. lol WTF? Little kids who don't care about anything other than what I call, Nakeditity. Leave them alone. Freedom. As far as I am concerned, if you see a little child naked and you are upsaet, get yourself to a nut house. Leave the kids alone. Let them be free.

It seems to me, the real pervers here, are the walmart employee(s),f or thinking sexually like that.

its sad that as a society we are so ashamed of our body that we have gone to this extent.
Now as this continues, what effects do you think this is going to have on the children as they grow up?
Being taught from birth that their nude body, while noting sexual in nature is something to hide and be ashamed of..
What is the next generation going to be like?
They fail to realise with all these rules and laws that there are effects, many of which we have yet to see.
Its sad that as a society we can see murder and blood on normal tv, but a naked body , no way thats not fit for children...

Just what are we teaching the young ones?

The amount of carnage and destruction that would occur before I allowed my son to be taken would be astronomical.

If citizens were to force the authorities to consider the repercussions of their actions every time they pull some b.s. like this, I guarantee these abuses of power would cease, quickly.

You all can thank society's zero tolerance treatment of Paedophiles for this current situation. Rather than use reason and discernment, anything that smacks of Paedophilia is penalized and punished.

Why?

Because America says so, and you are all small people.

Defending freedoms means SPECIFICALLY defending the people's freedoms you want to see gone (e.g.; criminals and paedophiles). Otherwise, society suffers when the goalposts get moved further...

and further...



and further.

I know most of my opinions on subjects like these are.... not well accepted, received or tolerated. But where others see me fighting to defend people they'd like to shoot in the face and then actively gut with a knife, I see myself defending ALL people from their own inane sense of moral superiority and the harm that eventually causes down the line.

This is a perfect example of why people need to mind their own business.

Shame on the .gov and walmart for being total buffoons and RETARDS to the MAX!!!

This is worthy of the guillotine IMHO.

Actually it is more typically the "ultra liberals" that fall into these categories. (Notice I am NOT talking about Democrats/Republicans, Im speaking of EXTREMISTS)

Ultra liberals think women should never breast-feed , its demeaning (I know one named Mary Anne shes a real case).
They also think any little thing like taking a photo of ur kid could be child abuse/sexual abuse.

When I say ultra liberal, what i mean is they make the Obama crowd look like NeoCon Republicans.

All of the Christians I know think CPS is 100% evil. But all of the ultra mega liberals I know think its a Godsend. Go figure.

You just have to remember 1 thing, it is ok to show a baby girl topless. It is not ok to show a 15 year old girl topless.

Do you know how they decide what age makes the difference?

Whether or not the judge gets an aroused by it!
