I am a former Army Ranger and a child therapist. When I heard about Protect, I took the time to go on a road trip and meet the president of the organization, who was surprisingly accessible and open about what they do, how they do it, and why he is personally involved. Everything you see on the website -- from the lobby group changing laws in numerous states to better protect kids from being raped by predators and exploited by pornographers to the research they are doing to any of the charitable programs -- is legit. If you don't believe me, any moron with a computer is capable of tracking changes in the legal code for the states where Protect claims it has fought to change laws. These guys mean what they say, and they are the only ones out there doing it. They realize that the hard reality of protecting children from abuse is that you need money and political influence -- because the laws as they stand now are inadequate, and politicians don't care unless you make them. The people I've seen associated with this organization work harder than anyone I know outside of the military, and when I saw them at the organization's beginning, they were doing it as volunteers -- no one was getting paid. Anyone who wants to take the time can do a little research and see that Protect is everything they say they are, has nothing to hide, and truly deserves your support. I would seriosuly question the integrity and motivations of anyone who is going so far out of their way to dishonestly undermine an organization that fights so hard to protect children from abuse. . .
