it would seem so.
We are bombarded daily with news that even a few short years ago would have been unimaginable.
A recent article in Salon written by an abortion worker refers to an aborted baby as an “unwanted growth” and by removing it they “preserved the woman’s chosen course.” Seeing tiny arms and legs floating in a bowl made her even more
Planned Parenthood, the leading abortion provider in the country, tweeted that they thought telling girls to protect their character on prom night was “despicable.”
And the latest Gallup poll states:
Americans are more likely now than in the early 2000’s to find a variety of behaviors morally acceptable, including gay and lesbian relations, having a baby outside of marriage, and sex between an unmarried man and woman. Moral acceptability of many of these issues is now at a record-high level. source
One glaring observation of this poll is that while support for abortion has gone up by three points, support for the death penalty has gone down by the same three points.
To see these findings in action, I need go no further than my own very conservative area where the illegitimate birth rate among teenagers has skyrocketed. Marriage is no longer important, and multiple children by different fathers is common.
Marriage and family, the bedrock of a civilized nation, is all but destroyed. I have no doubt that when the Supreme Court issues it’s ruling on same-sex “marriage”, it will come down on the side of the homosexuals, thereby completely changing the definition of marriage.
Benjamin Franklin emphasized that without virtue, free societies could not properly function. He said, “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.”
When was the last time you even heard the word “virtue”? If people conformed to accepted virtues, none of what is going on would be possible.
There is much talk on many sites, usually the ones focused on the economy, about some big event coming along to collapse our country. Trust me on this, it won’t happen like that. In fact, it’s already happening and has been for decades. The slow drip of immorality and depravity has already transformed our country into something most of us don’t recognize anymore.
The elites don’t want a collapse, they want slaves who will be willing to do their bidding.
John Adams, in a letter dated October 11, 1798, to the Officers of the First Brigade of the Third Division of the Militia of Massachusetts said:
[…]we have no government, armed with power, capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
I have no intention of being anyone’s slave, and I hope you don’t either.
