  • Text: �--- I accuse m y parents.~. ~ Millions of lost souls will stand in the judgment day before the Great White Throne and, hearing their condemnation, will hysterically scream, "I accuse my p::ircnts." There are thousands of parents who have given their children everything but God. They have provided them with nourishing food, warm clothing and liberal educations . . . but no Saviour. They have showered them with gifts and protected them from harm . . . but have not provided a family altar. They have read to them Dick Tracy and Superman, but not the Bible. They have taken them to the movies, but not to Sunday school. They have cursed before their children, but never prayed. Thus thousands of children have lived to curse their parents for bringing them into the world and raising them without Christ. One of America's great moral problems today is juvenile delinquency. The majority of criminal offenses are being committed by teen-agers. They have no reverence for God and thus no respect for authority. Public 11 1 �schools have instilled their anti-Bible philosophy of "behaviorism" in their heads and they are expressing themselves to the utter consternation of educators, statesmen, clergymen and police. Juvenile delinquency is but the out-growth of adult delinquency. The son will be no better than his father, the daughter no better than her mother. A God-less, Bible-less, drunken father will produce an equally worthless son. A smoking, beer-drinking, gadabout mother will pr.::>duce a loose-living and pleasure-loving daughter. God Almighty will hold you parents accountable for sending your children to hell. Judge Healy of the Juvenile Court of Detroit, addressing a Young People's Rally on July 7, 1945, said, "Eighty percent of the youngsters arraigned in my court came from homes in which there has been no religious training." Bible-less homes produce potential criminals. The breakdown of morals among our youth is the direct result of throwing the Bible out of the homes, schools, and churches ')f America. Boys and girls who are already reaping the disastrous results of their sinful orgies, are already crying, "I accuse my parents; they never told me about God, Christ, the Bible, sin or sex." To be responsible for the demoralization of a youngster is a crime of colossal proportions. If your child goes to hell, it will be, to a great extent, your fault. If you are on �your way to the lake of fire, your child is following in your footsteps . Friend, you can lead you,; children to heaven or to hell.. The sole solution is for you to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour. "This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners" (I Timothy l: 15). Believe God's Word and receive His Son now-and you will be saved. Then you must begin living for your Lord in your home by immediately establishing a time each day when you gather your family together for prayer and the reading of the Bible. Then , by God's help, endeavor to lead your children to the Saviour, who in turn will keep them from the pollutions of this world. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23). -DAVID D . .ALLEN GOOD NEWS PUBLISHERS, Westchester, Ill. 2005 A world -wi de, nonprofit Christian literature mini stry :~:0 ltVrite f or FREE 1ample1 a nd i nformation �

You know by now that you are among the minority who think the nomination of Lester Maddox for Governor is ' 'deplorable, and as for the "seal of the great State of Georgia" being tarnished, such was the case when you were elected Mayor of Atlanta . On that date, the "seal of the City of At.:. lanta was tarnished" upon your becoming Mayor by the " colored" votes that elected you. The White People of the State of Georgia have spoken and you refuse to listen. Your opinion is only one against millions. You are denying all Geor gians the cho ice of electing who they want to head the State. That, in our opinion, is - dictator sh ip. If you and Martin Luther King a re asha med to be called Geor gians, all we can s ay to you is this , " There is no fence around the State of Georgia and you are free to leave whenever you want to, " and we are sure no one would be seen crying when you go, except your Negro supporters. Maybe you can take them with you ? We do not appreciate being call ed ignorant! We make up our own minds , as do the ma jority of the people , for whom we wish to vote: You have the s ame r ight, but jus t because your "Golden Boy " didn't win, you act like a SELFIS H .. CHILD. We lost our votes when we voted for Mayor, too, but we didn •t act like SELFISH CHILDREN about it, like you are doing now. Mr. Allen, if you plan to "go fishing" on November 8th and Lester Maddox wins, which he has a ver y good chance of doing, you s hould keep your mouth shut and leave the choice up to the voters. This is wh at you s hould have done this time! We all !mow there is nothing wor se than a politican who is lost, except a politican who sells his soul for a vote. We realize you are in a vulnerable position and that if you do not scream loud enough for the colored voters to support you in a bloc type vote, then you know you are lost as a politician. YES, MR. ALLEN, we read yo ur statement to the press, and you have had your "say." Now, we, as an independent group of people, not "backed" by any organization, feel we have the r ight to our opinions and to our .choice as to who we want for Governor, AND WE ARE GOING TO HAVE IT IN NOVE MBER!!! MR. ALLEN, WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF ?!!! Sincerely, Mr s. G. Gilley Mr s . c. Moore Atlanta �

Maddox, a segregationist . campaign, · runnmg a shoes trmg . has . ca~tured the Democratic nomination for governor-upsetting a moderate candidate and Georgia's middleroad racial course. . ' Madd!)X, a furmtur~ mer~hant 1 who qwt the cafeteria business I rather than b~ !orced to serve Negroes, dec1s1vely defeated Ellis G. Arnall, a former governor, in yesterday's primary runoff. Arnall had led a sixm~,n race two weeks ago. Go~ and the peo~~e are my amprugn managers,. exulted Maddox,. 50, afte_r pulling off the upset without b1g-mon~y back~rs or .t~E; support of h1ghrankmg pobbc1ans. reported the vote count stood at: Maddox 419,557, ~all 356,078. Not a Racial Campaign A fiery opponent of the federal government, President Johnson, liberalism, socialism and communism, Maddox says he shares the racial views of Alabama's Gov. George C. Wallace. But Maddox said very little about racial issues in his campaign. Arnall, 59, who scored a major upset two decades ago to win the governorship over the popular Eugene Talmadge, had charged in the runoff fight that Maddox was radical and an extremist, a man whose symbols were ax handles and pistols. A Look at. the Lester Maddox Politi Page_A-12 _cal _Method. _______ _ Maddox, _in resisting integration in 1964 and 1965, once waved a pistol to chase Negroes from his place and provided ax handles for white patrons. When ordered by a court t~ serve Negroes, Maddox qmt the cafeteria business. . Arnall met Maddox to concede personally. Some followers of Arnall said Republicans voted for Maddox ~s .the ~asie~ opponent for their nommee m Novem~r. _ . Taki_ng on Maddox m the first Georg1a tv;:o-party contest ~or g~vernor since Reconstruction will be Rep. Howard H. (Bo) Callaway, the states lone Republican ~ongressman. He is a conservative ex-Democrat who helped carry the state for Barry Goldwater in 1964. The voting patterns were jumbled strangely-adding at least some weight to the view that Republicans voted for Maddox. In the Goldwater strongholds of Macon, Augusta and Columbus, Arnall managed bare majorities after leading the field two weeks ago in those same cities. In the lieutenant governor's race, the voters nominated moderate George T. Smith, speaker of the Georgia House, over conservative Peter Zack Geer, the incumebnt. Geer told newsmen last night: "I want to tell you one more time-I'm fstill th the h"t lieutenant f lk governor o e w 1 e o s. I'm glad Lester Maddox beat Ellis Arnall." Dr. Martin Luther· King Jr. who lives in Atlanta said th; voting "revealed that 'Georgia is desperately competing with Mississippi for the bottom " "I must confess th Mr . a · Maddox's VIctory causes me to be ashamed to be a Georgian. This pretends that the days abeaa in race relations will be confusingly dreary and the nights will be darker than a thousand midnights." Maddox takes charge of the almost completely disorganized , Democratic party which under Gov. Carl E. Sanders has steered a moderate racial course · . Madd_ox will control the sta~ del~gation to th_e I?emocratic National ~nvent10n ID !968 and ~erve as titular party chief, even if he lpses to Callaway on Nov. 8W~llaee is exp~cted to run for president on a third-party ticket in '68.
