“Satan has intensified his efforts to destroy the family by corrupting the youth and robbing childhood of its innocence.

“Our youth are especially vulnerable as the enemy cunningly utilizes every means at his disposal, including the mass media and changes in constitutional law, to deceive them. He bombards our homes with enticements of destructive and harmful products and morals through television, videos, press, books, etc.

“We as Latter-day Saints and all good people anywhere must consciously screen what comes into our homes. Parents have the inalienable right and the responsibility to educate their children. No inappropriate outsider should be allowed to dictate our family values, nor what our children are being taught.”

Horatio A. Tenorio, Ensign Magazine “Let Us Build Fortresses” (Salt Lake City, UT: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, November 1994), 23.
