I’ve been closely observing our society and this is what I’ve noticed:
*The child’s best interest is being replaced with the child’s “rights.”
*The boosting of self-esteem outranks the development of moral character.
*Discipline is equated with abuse and indulgence is equated with love.
*The new mantra is “safety at all costs,” even if that cost is a weakened society made vulnerable to illness, ignorance, and intimidation.
*’Tolerance’ has been redefined to mean “tolerance of anything except that which acknowledges Jesus Christ.”
*Infrastructure is put into place after the houses are built and the families have moved in.
*Schools are closed to cut costs.
*Taxes are raised and salaries cut to pay off the debt.
*Those elected to serve the people are embracing despotism.
*The governing officials seek to appease the enemy by ostracizing our friends.
*Terrorists are being trained in our country and this is being allowed in the name of peace.
*When the number of U.S. troops killed during Operation Enduring Freedom topped 1,000 there was an outcry about the senseless loss. (And indeed, every life lost is a tragedy.)
*53 million babies have been killed in our country since 1973 and this was accepted because a woman has a right to choose.
*There is a hole in our pocket and those with needle and thread are labeled the bad guys.
