It has only taken about 4 1/2 decades for a great country to become an amoral cesspool. Sure, there has always been people who drink too much, get addicted to drugs, cheat on their spouses and sleep around. The difference is that there was a time when debauchery wasn’t celebrated and promoted.
I first became aware of the shift away from God, the Bible, and morality in the early 1970’s. I should have noticed it sooner but I was like most young people today, I didn’t do very much deductive thinking. I was a “young skull full of mush”.
Fast forward to 2012. The majority of the country, (by a wide margin…) now believes it is OK to terminate the life of an unborn child. The vast majority of abortions are for the convenience of the woman. Killing the unborn is the answer for women (and men) who sleep around and are too irresponsible to use protection against pregnancy. Harsh? Maybe, but the majority of the million or so abortions in the U.S. each year are a sick substitute for birth control.
The fall line up of TV programming is loaded with shows featuring “modern” families and especially homosexuals. Perversion has become mainstream. A majority of our citizens are fascinated by effeminate men. Even evangelical Christian denominations are beginning to accept the lie that perversion is “normal”.
Here in the parish where I live here in NE Louisiana dozens of public officials have been found guilty of crimes motivated by greed and lust for power. The latest was the former sheriff who plead guilty to a string of felonies and the court fined him $15K and put him in time out in his own home. The only time one of these bums is sorry for their crimes is when they get caught.
In recent history the most likely place to have a young boy sexually assaulted is if you leave him in the care of a church official. It is not only the Catholic church, but for sure the Catholics have had a priesthood loaded with perverts who preyed on young boys.
We are a “Christian country” in the same way my neighbor’s dog is a pig. We have become an “amoral” society. Everything is relevant, there is no objective truth, and the United States of America is dying a slow ugly death.
Welcome to the Progressive mecca that once believed in the God of the Bible and whose morals generally reflected its teachings. The power of darkness has won the battle, not only here in America but around the world. Every day more news comes to verify that fact.
The God of the Bible will have the final say. This is not the end. As a wise North Carolina farmer once said, “God don’t settle his books in October”. So the minority must stay on track, keep believing, and hold out the only hope for a better tomorrow and a better forever, the Lord Jesus Christ.
