Tonight, for the first time in 19 months I stepped foot in a bishop’s office.
I had talked before hand with my son about what the “law of chastity” is so he could answer in the affirmative when he was asked if he knew what it is and if he was keeping it. I thought this was the only question they were suppose to ask with regards to morality. It seems I was ill prepared because the only question about morality he asked was “have you seen pornography.” I was caught off guard, and admittedly panicked for a minute, but thankfully my 12 year old just steamed right ahead with the right answer of “no”. The bishop said if my boy would have said yes to having seen it he would have had to ask if he searched it out. I am pretty darn sure my boy has seen pornography but I told him, in preparation for tonight, that his actions with regards to his body and what his eyes have seen are not any of the business of the bishop and he did not have to tell him anything because he shouldn’t be asking in the first place. I was really happy he said no. The rest of the interview was just fine.
Because my 12 year old will know that I am there always and that it is never ok for him to be alone with an adult male who will ask him questions about sexual activities. I am only sorry that my older 3 boys had a blind momma raising them. But she isn’t blind anymore. Hallelujah!
