Inclusiveness, tolerance, and acceptance are words that sound nice, but the meanings are completely different depending on who you are talking too and what the subject is. America’s morality standards are in a state of flux compared to the paragon of virtues that this country was built upon.
Our Judeo-Christian heritage speaks for itself as the Puritans and Pilgrims utilized the strict foundations of their religious heritage to build America’s social fabric. What errors they made were not due to the word of God, but the lack of adhering to those specific standards that came from God's word.
America was a melting pot and not a nation built on factionalism which has been thoroughly demonstrated by the failures of other countries that multiculturalism sounds nice, but the strength of a country is based on uniformity while allowing for individualism. Everyone needs to be cooperating and doing the necessities that allow one to excel.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melting_pot
Having an agreed upon moral standard is the best playing field for setting boundaries and rules so that there is fair and unbiased participation.
However, what happens when somebody wants to change the rules?
Our criminal, civil, and moral codes were established under the pretext of what God’s word determined to be right and wrong. Much of our laws were written with the Ten Commandments opened for inspection and comparison.http://christunlimited.com/answers/aamerica.html
There really was no such thing as separation of church and state since our first President George Washington articulated that “you cannot govern apart from God and the Bible”. The distinction of the US Constitution clearly guarantees “freedom of religion”.http://www.examiner.com/article/america-needs-to-heed-the-advice-of-george-washington
Unfortunately the religious provision which allows the free expression of religion has been bastardized to “freedom from religion” by the dark forces that are subverting the moral standard that made America great. The solid foundations are now out, and ambiguous standards are in.
Our educational system is less about education and more about indoctrination into unconventional standards. There’s no such thing as right or wrong, but adapting to and accepting any behavior. Unless that belief is Biblically based, then it is rejected under the smokescreen of separation of church and state. One can get rid of any religious standards that way when it is convenient.
Has anybody checked the results of promoting multiculturalism and having no absolute moral standards?
While our elite intellectuals continue to lower graduation requirements and minimum test standards, America continues descending into the bottom of the chart compared to other countries regarding performance. We suck at performance compared to other countries, but we sure feel good about ourselves.
Each graduation class knows less and less about our actual heritage and the critically significant role religion played in the development of America. There is an intangible that keeps the entire process going and that intangible is MORALITY.
President George Washington warned our generation in his parting address that one cannot have moral character apart from religious principle. The lacking of religious principle is why there is such a rampant increase in political corruption and deception in those who are representing the best America has to offer.
This “moral failure” is impacting all sectors of our society including organizations that are faith based. The drilling down of moral relativism ultimately impacts social standards and begins a downward spiral that will continually get worse. This curse takes place as a consequence of becoming spiritually bankrupt by not following God’s word.
It does not take a mental giant to recognize the results of removing God’s standards from our school system under the pretense of separation of church and state. Abraham Lincoln correctly declared, “the philosophy of the school room in one generation will become the philosophy of government in the next”.
The demolition of America’s moral fabric is directly tied to the removing of the Bible, God, prayer, and the Ten Commandments by actions of the United States Supreme Court. The high court’s implementation, not interpretation, of Roe-Wade in 1973 has had a devastating impact on the nation’s morality.
Blinded by their own arrogance, the very people searching to crush injustice have become the very tyranny they seek to purge. It would be laughable if it was not so tragic. They have deceived themselves by thinking that religion or God is the problem.
God declared in Exodus 20:5 that He would visit the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation. There is such a thing as a generational curse….look at the record. God warns that if one forgets His word, He would forget their children.
The folly of not following the word of God is well documented in history and the present.
